    If Chelsea get a transfer ban and Hazard goes (99% he will) it's like us losing Bale and not being able to spend the money.

    I assume that Higuain will have to return at the end of the season as well?

    Bonus for us that Everton win. Now we need a few Arse and Manure slip ups. Time to fill up my fantasy team with their players.

    Is this the ninth or tenth Chelsea crisis this season?

    Very important result for us. Now, even if we lose at Anfield (assuming it's not by a cricket score, we rarely get smashed under Poch) then we will still be in the top 4 after the next round of fixtures is complete.

    1 point from the last 6, that's a big opportunity missed by Chelsea.

    *edit -- and I think our 2 league games after Anfield will now be Palace at home and Huddersfield at home. Great chance to build some momentum in the new stadium (Emirates Marketing Project at home in champs league between these two games I think).

    All in our hands.

    Yup, a relief to see Everton do us a favour but no surprise that Fulham folded yet again :oops:

    If we can just win all our home games and get a point v Bournemouth we can afford to lose to Liverpool and City.

    Can’t decide if Chelsea not being able to bring in this years Capoue, Chiriches, Paulinho, Soldado, Chadli, etc is a good thing or a bad thing!!!

    They can though buy another ‘era’ if Roman is so inclined!
    But he seems bored with whole thing!

    Yeah, I don't think he will do that when he can't even enter the country.

    Re. Abramovich, when he took over Chelsea he was pretty much the only owner of his kind in world football wasn't he? They could buy any player from any club and pay mind boggling amounts in fees and wages.

    But now, he isn't even in a class of his own in England, nevermind the world. Emirates Marketing Project's owners have blown hmi out of the water, Man Utd have become even more of a money-making juggernaut and those 2 can outspend Chelsea for any player. PSG have come on the scene, again able to pay more than Roman. Real Madrid and Barca have done what Utd have done and become commercial giants of the game, so they too can outspend. With Juventus and Bayern not as far away as they once were in terms of financial power either.

    So it's just a lot harder for them and him now. They have won it all under his ownership, but the chance of making a legacy club, of turning Chelsea into Barca, that's gone forever now. So maybe he is getting a bit jaded with it all.

    Unfortunately they are on the easy side of the EL draw. They basically have a walk-over all the way to the final.

    Didn’t know where best to put this but I’d love to see this in the PL. Not going to happen I know but at least Dean would have nowhere to hide then..



    Just looked him up and he’s moving to The Championship as he’s studying at John Moores University

    That's brilliant, I'd rather listen to that then the brick commentary.
