Don’t follow European footy much.  Are Chelsea still in any competitions?   Be hard to get the whole team to an away euro fixture for under 20k. 

 

Still in The Champions League - away at Lille next week.

Chelsea's success has been bought with money stolen from the Russian people by a close friend of a brutal tyrant who has murdered his opponents, some in foreign countries, and has now launched an unprovoked invasion of a democratic country. 

And some Chelsea fans chant his name. Shame on them .

Sounds pretty bad when you put it like that

Incredible. They’re buggered if this isn’t sorted soon. 

 

You get a feeling because it's a football club they will be given special dispensation to carry on in someway with ticket sales , travel expenses etc. in the next few days.
It's only a small factor in everything happening in the world but think current events have cast a shadow over Chelseas success in recent years.

People will say Chelsea only won trophies because they were funded with dodgy money.

Club shop closed as well. Probably won’t even be able to buy a pie and a pint at half time. 

 

Can't see the point in closing the club shop. That's going to hit genuine supporters, who have accumulated Teamcard Points and nowhere to spend em.

Probably a good thing the sale is off. One of the bidders was somebody who'd stoop so low as to steal sweets from kids.

 

Something about wanting to Nick Candy. Unless I've read that wrong....

I think its short term pain for Chelsea tbh.

 

The club will be sold to the first bidder and any funds will not go to Abramovich. 

 

I just cannot see a scenario where the Government/EPL will let one of its biggest clubs full beneath the wayside.

 

Though it would be amazing if they did.

Sadly I expect there will be a protest or something similar among some of the less educated Chelsea fans at their game tonight. 
 

That will then probably find its way onto Russian TV to show how popular he is.

He is married to Holly Vallance the 90s sex kitten who was on Neighbours.

Just wait for tonight’s game. I hope I’m wrong, but it can show how ignorant some football fans can be.

 

I’ve already read something in the BBC Sport thread, saying that he thought Abramovich was a nice guy. He’d helped by letting out rooms at the hotel during covid etc etc. Fair enough for that in isolation I suppose, but he’s blinkered as to what was happening behind the facade.
