Yossi Benayoun Is Ready for the New Season

Chelsea midfielder Yossi Benayoun is a cheeky monkey:

That came from a preseason game against third-tier Wycombe Wanderers last week. Not too shabby.

Know what they call Benayoun in his native Israel? The Diamond of Dimona. We like it.

Maybe Ian Darke or Martin Tyler can drop that moniker into an EPL broadcast this fall and give it some traction in the wider world.
