Employee: I cannot afford an attorney. Can I do the work myself?

The old proverb that a “person who represents himself has a fool for a client,” still rings true. Unless you are conversant with the current laws and procedures of employment law, you will probably make mistakes.

Filing discrimination complaints with the EEOC and with your state’s human rights office may seem easy, and in fact these agencies may tell you that you do not need an attorney.

The primary issue is that a person who is not familiar with the legal aspects of discrimination law may misstate or forget to include something in the complaint that will turn out to be of primary importance as the case proceeds through the legal system.

Another thing to remember when representing yourself is that your employer will have at least one attorney. Many documents that the employer must file in a discrimination complaint are required to be created by an attorney. If there is a fact-finding hearing you will be face-to-face with the attorney and your former employer, but you will
have no one with you on your side. Also, by not having an attorney

represent you, you will be responsible for handling the negotiations to achieve a settlement. Settlements are not easy to obtain, even for attorneys, and require some knowledge of the potential litigation that
can result from an employment discrimination complaint.

Some reports even claimed that Manchester United have agreed a deal for him to take over next season.

Manchester United have targeted two playmakers in the English Premier League [EPL] ahead of next season.

Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish and Leicester City midfielder James Maddison are major targets for the Red Devils.

Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has painted the German Bundesliga with goals and assists – He has had a hugely successful three years in Germany since his transfer in the summer of 2017.

Jadon Sancho has scored 15 goals in 29 matches in all competitions this season with 14 assists.

The Red Devils are also one of the teams interested in Lyon striker Moussa Dembele.

The French striker is also a major target for fellow Premier League top flight side Lyon.

EPL: Three Former Chelsea Players The Pensioners Can Sign In Summer

Chelsea

Chelsea Academy is blessed with a lot of young players and the Europa League winner found it difficult to keep most of the players due to lack of playing opportunity.

The Blues Academy has been one of the prolific academies in the Premier League; the academy currently has produced more than five players who are playing regularly in the current team squad. 

Chelsea who are well known for their constant spending in transfer windows have spent more than 2 billion Euros on transfer fees and players’ salaries since Roman Abramovic became the owner of the club.  

For more than a decade now, John Terry has been the only Product from the Academy who has spent his entire football career at Stamford Bridge.

Majority of the players produced are being loaned out to different clubs in Europe in order to gain more experience and some of these players are later released, while others were sold out cheaply to avoid UEFA’s sanctions for financial fair rule. 

Conte was the first manager to give some of the loan players’ opportunity, his decisions were criticized by the Blues’ fans when they reinstated Victor Mosses, Nathaniel Ake and Andreas Christensen into the first team thereby dropping Cahill and Willian in his famous 3-4-3 formation.

Victor Moses and Andreas Christensen are some of the loan players who feature regularly under the Italian after their successful loan spell at Stoke City and Borussia Monchengladbach respectively, in which he won the League at his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea transfer ban gave them no other option than to trust in their loan players who in turn serve as blessings to Frank Lampard managerial career at Chelsea, the former Chelsea Legend still maintains their fourth spot despite tough competitions.

Lampard’s team is currently struggling with forms after a brilliant start at the beginning of the season.

The Blues started well following the 4nil humiliation from Manchester United.

Frankie will have to stick to the loan players till summer since they failed to sign new players in January, there are many Chelsea loan players who had to leave the club due to their declined performance, the team will have to sign to avoid the case of Mohammed Salah and Kelvin De-bruyne.

The Top three former Chelsea Players the team should sign.

Nathaniel Ake

The former Chelsea player has become one of the best defender in the Premier League.

The Bournemouth player can play as a centre-defender or as a left-back. 

The former Chelsea defender was recalled from loan under Antonio Conte with the hope that he will be given more playing time at London. Unfortunately, the defender was sold to Bournemouth despite his brilliant performance.

Chelsea are currently struggling at the back-line as conceded in their previous 5 matches, Antonio Rudiger is the only trusted defender in the squad, the manager who has used Zouma, Tomori and Christensen this season but none of these players was able to impress the retired midfielder.

However, bringing back Ake to Stamford Bridge should be Frankie’s decision, the former Derby manager tried to sign the player this January but it wasn’t fertile since Bournemouth who are still battling relegation opted to keep their player due to replacement.

Signing Ake in summer is possible, they might use Tomori as a bait to lure their former player back to the club.

It appears that the buy-back clause in his contract still put Chelsea ahead of other teams in the Premier League that also want his service.

Thorgan Hazard

The younger brother of former Chelsea player Eden Hazard was signed along with his brother, although the midfielder never put on the blue Jersey before he was sold after his successful loan spell at Germany Bundesliga club Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Belgium midfielder can play in the Midfield and also as a winger, his creative passes and dribbling abilities will add to Frankie’s team.

Thorgan who has always proclaimed his love for the Londoners will hope to work in his brother’s shoes who won the league at Chelsea and also the UEFA Europa cup.

The young winger recently signed for Borussia Dortmund despite interest from Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League. 

The prolific winger will be an added advantage at Chelsea, his experience and assists will increase the scoring rate of Tammy Abraham who is currently struggling to increase his 13 League Goals, The England international has been experiencing goal drought in his previous 5 matches. 

Jeremie Boga

The Ivorian winger left Chelsea after 3 successful loan spell with Rennes, Granada and Birmingham.

The young winger was signed by Sassuolo after his failure to secure a starting slot at Chelsea.

It appears that Frank Lampard might make a move for the winger following his brilliant display in the Serie A this season.

The young attacker has scored 6 times, assist 3 in the League, helping the Italian to sit comfortably above relegation.

It was rumored that Barcelona and Napoli have shown interest in signing the 23-years-old who is gradually becoming a popular player in Italy – Although, Chelsea still have an edge over other teams because of the buy-back clause in his contract.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will have to sign him in summer, the recent decline in some of their players’ form might force Frank Lampard to reinforce the team squad.

Boga whose release clause is 12 million Euros will a useful vessel at Chelsea, the Pensioners failed in their attempt to sign Moussa Dembele, Thomas Werner or Jordan Sancho due to high inflating in the transfer market.

Moussa Dembele

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard pushed for a new striker in the just concluded January transfer window but he and the other Blues Faithfuls were left disappointed after the failure to secure the signing of at least one of their striker targets.

Lampard and Chelsea tried to sign a new attacker last month especially after the lifting of their transfer ban gave the West London club the freedom to sign players but they were unable to sign anyone.

Chelsea were linked with attackers like Paris Saint Germain (PSG) striker Edinson Cavani, Lyon hitman Moussa Dembele, Red Bull Salzburg attacker Timo Werner and Napoli attacker Dries Mertens but they didn’t get anyone thus leaving first-choice striker Tammy Abraham with the possibility of burning out before the end of this summer.

Lampard has used Tammy Abraham in virtually almost all the important games this season as he seems to not trust the other strikers Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud.

Tammy Abraham has scored 15 goals in all competitions including 13 goals in the Premier League this term.

The England international is almost certain to have a new striker competition next season with recent reports claiming that the Blues will return for Lyon attacker Moussa Dembele after they were snubbed by Timo Werner of RB Leipzig.

Timo Werner wants to sign for Liverpool ahead of Chelsea thus leaving Moussa Dembele as their next option.

Moussa Dembele is the main man at Lyon this season after the injury to Memphis Depay towards the end of last year.

The Frenchman would certainly provide stiff competition for Tammy Abraham at Chelsea if they are able to secure his signing from Lyon.

The likes of Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud are expected to move on from Chelsea at the end of this season especially Frenchman Giroud whose current deal expires this summer.

EPL: Why Chelsea should retain Mario Pasalic after his loan move

Mario Pasalic

Chelsea football club are blessed with a lot of talented young players, Majority of these players are sent out on loan to gain more experiences.

Their constant spending every transfer windows had reduced the chance of these players getting playing opportunity at Stamford Bridge.

Most of these players are sold out to prevent the Blues from been sanctioned by UEFA for financial pay rules.

The likes of Mohammed Salah and Kevin De buyne were sold out by the pensioners some years back having struggled to be prolific during their stay at Stamford Bridge.

The Londoners are currently struggling to get incline after a tremendous poor performance. However, with Kevin and Salah in the squad, the team performance might be better than their current form.

Chelsea might end up losing another outstanding player if they agree to sell Mario Pasalic to Atalanta FC.

The attacking midfielder had prolific display in all his previous six loan outings at Chelsea.

He had shown his quality in Spain, Russia, France and Italy with the likes of Elche, Monaco, AC Milan, CSKA Moscow and Atalanta.

The Midfielder who is enjoying his third seasons at Italy, has been prolific in the Serie A, qualifying Atalanta for their first Champion League last season, they currently occupy the 4th position in the league standing with 7 points drifting them below Lazio.

The 24-years-old had contributed 10 goals so far, scoring 6 and assisting 4, with a performance 6.93 trated by whoscored.

We stronly believe Mario at Stamford Bridge will ease the work load on Ngolo Kante who has been combining both attacking and defending task together. 

Ngolo Kante who has been the heart of Chelsea midfield has been prolific, winning the PFA best player award under Antonio Conte; he also won the Premier League respectively.

The France midfielder has not been happy with changes in formation that was first employ by former Chelsea Coach Sarri.

Many football fans hope he will retain his favorite spot when Frank Lampard was appointed as Sarri replacement. However, the former Chelsea legend still prefer using Jorginho as defensive midfielder while Kante continue to manage his advance midfield role.

The 27-year-old might consider leaving Chelsea to re-unite with Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois at Real Madrid this summer. 

 Pasalic will be an added advantage to frank lampard’s team squad.

The Croatia player can play as an attacking midfielder or as a supporting striker that will add more option for the Pensioners squad.

However he can also serve as back-up for the likes of Mateo Kovacic and Ross Barkley who have been injured this season.

The Chelsea winger who has 6 months left on his current contract has informed Chelsea of his desire to leave after Rejecting 2 years offer from the Pensioners.

The winger has been on Barcelona wish-list following his brilliant display against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League.

The Spanish giant $20 million bid was rejected by Chelsea due to Lampard’s inability to sign a player this concluded transfer.

Willian has been at Stamford Bridge since 2013 and has made 322 appearances for the Blues.

He has been one of the club’s best and most reliable player in the squad.

Despite some loop holes in his career at Chelsea, the forward manage to rejuvenate his form under Frank Lampard, scoring 5 goals and 5 assists this season. 

His vast experience could prove vital in the development of young wingers Callum Hudson-Odio and Christian Pulisic.

Loosing Willian would hurt Chelsea’s manager Frank Lampard who was once been a teammate to the Brazilian.

Chelsea who are struggling in the attack and they will hope to sign a better player to replace the speedy winger.

However, this article will discussed three Brazilian players that can replace Willian at Chelsea.

EDITOR’S PICK

3. Everton Soares

Everton is a player who has attracted many European teams with his brilliant performance at Copa- American.

The young Brazilian plays for Gremio in the Brazilian League.

The winger has scored 11 goals and 5 assists in the Brasilerio this season.

 The attacker release clause is set at 80 million Euros by Gremio.

A couple of teams in Europe bid for the winger at summer, but none of the teams were able to match the player’s release clause.

In his interview with Italian television, the winger stated clearly that he has entrusted his future to his agent Gimar Veloz.

Gimar failed to secure a move to Europe for the Brazilian despite 40 million Euros bid from AC Milan in the summer. However, the attacker will have to leave his local league if he is to get to the peak of his career.

Signing for Chelsea will be a better option for the Brazilian, his powerful shot and decisive crosses and dribble will make him excel quickly in the Premier League.

His released clause might be a barrier to the Pensioners who failed to sign Zaha, Sancho due to high inflation in the transfer market.

2. David Neres

David Neres is a Brazilian footballer who plays as a winger for Dutch Club, Ajax.

The winger was signed from Sao Paulo in the year 2016 for 12 million Euros.

David has been prolific at the Dutch League ever since his move to the Johan Cruijff Arena, the young player has scored 31 goals in 81 appearances at Amsterdam.

Ajax is well known for producing young players, they have  made a lot of profit, after selling the like of De-jong and De-light for Barcelona and Juvestus respectively, they will hope to sell the young Brazilian if there any concrete bid from the top teams in Europe.

The 22-years-old his not strange at Stamford Bridge, his prolific performance against Chelsea shows he has a lot of potentials.

The pensioners will be left with Pulisic and Hudson-Odio as the only winger in summer, Pedro and Willian will be leaving the club at the end of the season when their contract runs out.

Meanwhile, David released clause is not as huge as Sancho or Zaha, having David at Chelsea team will provide competition for both young wingers. His abilities will help the team push for trophy next season.

#. 1 Richarlison

Richarlison who currently has 4 years contract at Goodison Park has been prolific ever since his 40 million Euros move from Watford in the Premier League.

The attacker is considered one of the best young players in the league after he was short- listed for the PFA award. His incline performance earns him a call-up to the Brazilian national team.

Richarlison in Chelsea Team will produce some spectacular moment, the Brazilian who can play as winger or striker will be prolific at Stamford Bridge.

Pricing him away from Everton will not be an easy task since there is no release clause in his contract. However it will a great advantage if Chelsea can lure him to Stamford Bridge.
