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

    • What's been ignored in all of this transfer noise is , a striker scored on his debut ,  COB
    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league.
