  1. Our New Stadium

    Chelsea kicks off search for stadium buildersBy Louise Dransfield, Dave Rogers 13 February 2018Premier League club’s new stadium will have 60,000 capacity when builtChelsea has begun the hunt for the first contractors to get involved with building work at the £1bn redevelopment of its Stamford Bridge ground.The first tranche of work is expected to include the decking platforms to be built over the District Line to the north west of the stadium and a mainline railway used by Southern trains to the east.These platforms will be used to help create the areas for fans to mill about outside the new ground which has been designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss architect behind the Tate Modern extension.A winner is expected to be announced by the middle of the year.Last month, the west London club headed off a legal threat to its 60,000 seat development after Hammersmith and Fulham Council sided with it amid a row with neighbouring residents who complained the project would block their daylight.The Premier League team’s current capacity is 41,600 and the new ground will mean its capacity will be on a par with Arsenal’s Emirates stadium but behind Spurs’ 61,559 when its new ground, being built by Mace, completes this August.The wider project team includes Arcadis as cost manager, WSP as transport consultant with the firm also providing engineering services along with German structural engineer Schlaich Bergermann which has worked on stadia at the last three World Cups.Chelsea has been contacted for comment.
  2. Conte In? Or Conte Out?

    Personally I want Conte to stay but if Bakayoko starts again before a top-four place is secure - then he can leave. Because starting Bakayoko again after Monday night would just be a big 'up yours' to the board and fans.

    A bit more about the deal with Oswald Stoll Mansions next door to the ground. From Building Design magazine; PRP picked for veterans' homes funded by Chelsea FC deal By Elizabeth Hopkirk2 February 2018 Charity would sell part of site to football club. PRP has landed the job of designing new social housing for veterans next to Chelsea FC’s Stamford Bridge stadium. The project is being billed as a “once-in-a-generation” opportunity made possible by Chelsea’s plans to rebuild its stadium to a design by Herzog & de Meuron. The redevelopment would be funded by selling part of the prime west London site to the football club. Sir Oswald Stoll Mansions currently contain 157 mostly one-bed flats behind an imposing Victorian façade on Fulham Road The façade would be retained but the residential blocks would be bulldozed and replaced by 103 new flats for veterans, plus improved support facilities such as therapy rooms and shared recreational amenities. The money raised by the deal with Chelsea would also pay for up to 300 veterans’ flats in other parts of the country, said Stoll, the charity that runs the accommodation, and secure its long-term sustainability. “Improving the current estate would cost millions of pounds and this is the only chance we have to pay for the improvements that are needed,” said Stoll in its consultation documents. “The scale of the potential investment on offer is a ‘one off’ given the Chelsea stadium redevelopment and we would not be able to renew the estate without this investment.” Stoll said it considered selling the whole site but ruled this out as too disruptive for tenants. It also ruled out a simple refurbishment because of the age and condition of the existing stock. Tenants would get £7,000 compensation for the disruption – or £16,000 for those who decide to move out. The amount of outdoor space and gardens would be “slightly reduced” by the sale, but PRP’s design proposes more communal space inside as well as three new landscaped areas, including a roof garden. The scheme would have 881sq m of private garden space. The charity’s board is set to make a decision in April after the consultation has closed. If the plans proceed, the scheme would not complete before 2021.
  4. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    Michy Batshuayi: Borussia Dortmund agree loan deal for Chelsea striker By Simon Stone BBC Sport http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42886255
  5. Michy Batshuayi to Chelsea

    At Dortmund now.
  6. Olivier Giroud to Chelsea

    David Ornstein‏Verified account @bbcsport_david 13h13 hours ago Merry-go-round: Giroud was lined up to replace Aubameyang at Dortmund then got offer from Chelsea & was keen, so Dortmund turned to Batshuayi. But Chelsea baulked at Giroud fee so discussed Batshuayi/Llorente swap with Spurs, which nobody agreed on. Deadlock
  7. I don’t think Berkley did that bad considering that was his first match all season. It’s not his fault we have no focal point to our attack. Alonso looks exhausted – Palmeiri can’t arrive soon enough.
  8. So that's Cesc, Cahill, Morata and Pedro. Tibo out - Drinkwater maybe. Also Azpi played 120 minutes on Wednesday so must be knackered. I'm sensing a ''just get through it' draw.
  9. Booing of players

    I was at the match last night and there was no booing of players that I could hear. Plenty for the Ref though.
  10. Our New Stadium

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42696760 Chelsea stadium: £1bn Stamford Bridge plan aided by council decision By Simon Stone BBC Sport Chelsea's £1bn development of Stamford Bridge can go ahead after Hammersmith and Fulham Council passed a motion that will prevent an injunction blocking the plans.
  11. Barcelona are going to rip us a new one if we carry on like this.
  12. Tony Gale; "That's a shame" when Mahrez is flagged offside. Could this pr**k be any more obvious?
  13. Unlistenable. If he's not praising the opposition to the heavens, he's slagging off the club. When he finishes slagging off the Club he starts slagging off the team when he finishes THAT he starts slagging off Chelsea fans. Absolute w**ker.
  14. How Leicester aren't cruising this 2-0 is an absolute baffling mystery.
