So today see a certain Chelsea midfielder by the name of Cesc Fabregas celebrate his birthday, so in honour of the Spaniard we are going to take a closer look at the players who have spent time in London.
As we know the rivalries are fierce when it comes to a derby day in the capital the likes of Arsenal v Tottenham, West Ham v Millwall and Chelsea v QPR and nothing stokes that fire more than a player leaving a club for a rival.
The abuse given to these players at times goes beyond personal and is anything but banter, with some players even threatened by former so called fans upon leaving the club.
Most players handle the abuse and pressure and deal with the abuse but others have been known to crack in the past but it is just part and parcel of the game.
So our landlord here in The Transfer Tavern has been through the archives and has come up with his team of eleven London hoppers!
