Unstoppable? How Chelsea could look with Lionel Messi

first_imgRumours have begun to swirl surrounding Lionel Messi’s discontent at Barcelona and. thanks to a few taps on his smart phone, a switch to Chelsea has even been suggested.It seems unthinkable the Argentine would leave Barcelona other than for, perhaps, a final flourish with Newell’s Old Boys, the side where he began his incredible career.But his alleged unhappiness at the Nou Camp under Luis Enrique is likely to have been exacerbated when he started on the bench for the La Liga side’s 1-0 defeat to Real Sociedad.Missing out on the club’s annual opening training session on Monday further underlined questions surrounding his future, while Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta and his assistant Carles Puyol are both no longer with the club.Meanwhile Messi following both Chelsea and then their Brazilian left-back Filipe Luis on Instagram has fanned the flames.Such a move would clearly set Blues owner Roman Abramovich back plenty of roubles, but if the club can balance the books and appease UEFA’s financial fair play rules it might not be beyond the realms of possibility.But with the Chelsea currently leading the Premier League, although only on alphabetical order, just where would Messi play under Jose Mourinho? talkSPORT has a bit of fun speculating… 1 Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi last_img read more

The federal government’s Forest Service leads the frontline response to fires in the San Bernardino Mountains and other national forests. The starting base salary for a Forest Service firefighter is about $32,000, according to the Forest Service. CDF pays the same person almost $50,000. Minimum pay for a San Bernardino city firefighter is about $60,000. The loss of federal firefighters to state and local agencies has always been a fact of life for the USFS. But the pace of departures has noticeably picked up, said Dietrich and others familiar with the situation. “It means that you will not have the federal fire service protection you assume you have,” said Casey Judd, business manager for the Federal Wildland Fire Service Association, which lobbies for federal wildland firefighters. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
