Before anyone writes us off, keep this word in your head:  

Simon Jordan has just said that he has spoken to Gibbo and his response was 'Chelsea and football integrity do not go hand in hand' 😂

Read some guff on Sky Sports that Chelsea face a 'gruelling ten hour round trip to Middlesbrough after being unable to book flights.' 

What a load of crap. Pretty sure there's a direct train from Kings Cross... I'm sure a first class ticket and a hotel for the night wouldn't hurt too much for a bunch of multi-millionaires. 

Or just drive... It takes three and a half hours from me, just outside London. It's motorway the entire journey so takes less time than you'd expect.

Yep. Boohoo!

It's been reported earlier that apparently they can't take the train as that would put them over the 20k limit they can spend on an away match.

Were they planning on buying the train?

It doesn't say on the BBC News website whether 'behind closed doors' also means at a neutral venue. If it does, that's absurd, and impractical to arrange with four days' notice. If it doesn't, what difference does the presence of fans make to the Chelsea squad's travelling arrangements?

Don't most of Chelsea's senior squad own SUV's big enough to sleep in? I'm sure we could put them up for the night in our car park round the back of the stadium.

Probably can't afford to put enough fuel in them though. PL footballers tend to pick vehicles that do about 15-20mpg, don't they? 😉

Maybe people on Teesside could register to let a Chelsea player stay in their spare room instead of a Ukrainian refugee? You might not get £350 per month from the Government, but you'd get to hear loads of stories about how amazing Roman Abramovich is and why West Ham fans are all ****s.

Don’t think that has done them any favours.

Fans, players and the whole club will be even more up for this now than they were before. And they still have virtually no fans coming

    • Struggle to see wilder bringing in a midfielder to replace howson. My guess is we’re getting a defender and 1-2 forwards and that’s it. 
    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
