Monday Toffeelinks

The internet is abuzz with excitement about this man. - Jamie McDonald

In today's Toffeelinks, we once again bask in the joy that was Ross Barkley on Saturday, pay respect to Leighton Baines, and more!

It is fantastic to have real, competitive games to talk about this week, rather than just more transfer speculation and friendly matches. Of course, today's biggest news is transfer related, and Alex does a good job of covering it here. The transfer window cannot close fast enough. In any event, on to some more positive news.
