Chelsea is a small and everyone knows that their whole history was started in 2004

I like Roman & I think this is so unfair to Chelsea & the fans..


However did you see how many hoops Newcastle had to jump through to get bought by the Saudis?
It’s a shame that Chelsea are going to need new owners!!!

He has done the best thing for the club however selfish it might be. Roman is not the one who pays salaries of players and staff, it's a we'll run club and monies for running the club are domiciled in England in Chelsea fc name, so no cause for any alarms
Palestine Exists
Palestine Exists:
Celtic FC fans hold Palestinian flags when they’re playing Israeli teams and UEFA says “no place for politics in football”. Now it’s an issue that doesn’t involve bitting the hand that feeds them and Ukrainian flags are everywhere.

Is this the end of CFC? I hope not because Roman is more than the owner

Wow these guys are talking like the club gone under Administration, this guy is a business man, he know wat he doing, plus the club is in a good financial structure, to fund it self as a business, no need to worry

Why is he giving custody of his club away? Just asking, maybe I missed this?

Boycott Russian teams? That should mean boycotting Russian-owned teams as well. Abromovich still commands considerable economic and political authority in Russia.

RA is gone. Chelsea will have to live within their means as no additional rubles will be forthcoming. Even with Portugal & Israel dual passports, dont think RA can hang in Lisbon/algarve nor Tel Aviv given EU/US pressure. Best options are Rio, Cape Town, maybe BA, maybe HK.

The players have politicised their game:-
“Racism & social injustice of any kind” that’s the quote the players give for “taking the knee”
Should Liverpool refuse to play against Chelsea, a Russian owned side & support the peoples of Ukraine!
