    The irony of an American saying that on a forum for a London football team playing in a English league and in a European Cup competition. Seems you care enough about it to be posting on here.

    Don't know if anybody saw a documentary called the "secret history of our streets" that was on BBC 2 a couple of years ago? They did an episode on Portland road in Notting Hill which really made you think. Basically showed the way in which it has been transformed from a vibrant multicultural community in the 1950's and 60's, to a row of Oligarch money holdings. Did a few interviews with the two remaining original residents who say that systematically all their neighbors left, as the money on offer became too high to turn down. I made this point earlier, but if any of you have spent any time in Paris you'll see what we as a city are crashing towards. An inner city , devoid of true local residents, pretty to look at but ultimately soulless. People on lower income will be driven further into the suburbs creating a ring of poor, high crime areas around the city. But as long as it is out of sight , who cares eh?

    Also I'm quite happy here thanks. Every Englishman should be proud that we as a country don't leave behind those who need help.

    Who cares about less crime if no one can live there in the first place? Maybe they should concentrate on reducing crime for normal people, not just shipping them out the way

    Not really, London is dying a slow death these days. Slowly driving out anyone on under 60,000. The mega rich buy property as a failsafe way of storing money, leaving huge areas unoccupied, destroying communities. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-26980299 In ten years time most of London will be like Paris, no more than a glorified museum. Its a real shame

    Not sure why people think he's going to be thrown straight in on Sunday. Doesn't really seem like mourinhos style to put a new player in the team for such a big game.

    No way QPR are ever gonna get more that 20,000 even in the Prem. It's gonna be another Coventry Ricoh Arena situation with more than half the ground empty

    The problem is, the club aren't trying to grow fanbase the same way the Blackhawks did. In a big sports city like Chicago, teams are trying to get people in the arena over the different sports teams. The fanbase grew because people from Chicago embraced the team due to the success. Its different in London. If Chelsea are going through a particularly bad spell but Harlequins are winning the Rugby premiership every year, it doesn't mean that the people who would be going or supporting Chelsea, start following a different sport. Football is a lot more omnipresent here.Everyone follows a team .People from London and the surrounding area, the people who realistically make the core of the support (domestically at least), choose a team due to geographic proximity, family ties, or how often they go to the ground. What I'm saying is that the "new" fans, are most likely from overseas. Whilst I'm sure that is great for the clubs finances, it does not then translate into more people coming to the ground every week , or travelling the country. Just because someone from Malaysia has fallen madly deeply in love with Chelsea, I don't think that is the same thing as growing a strong domestic fanbase, which ultimately sustains the club through more difficult times. Basically the essential problem is that to often these days, people going to stamford bridge, even if they do genuinely care about Chelsea, are interested in getting a photo inside the the ground, buying everything in the Megastore, and taking photos throughout the game on their phone. They're not ingrained in the culture of what it actually means to be a Chelsea supporter, going every week, feeling the agony and the ecstasy. In that way , its become more like an exchange. Come to Stamford Bridge , buy a shirt , watch the match, and suddenly your a "proper" Chelsea supporter. I'm sorry but its nowhere near the same thing, and I really think that unless the club can find a way of getting younger people in on a regular basis, then the we won't have many of our hardcore left.

    Yeah of course there is no denying the income generated from attracting new fans to the club is helpful for building the team/generating revenue etc. But again you're quantifying this simply financially. Money isn't the be all and end all support for a club. And of course your right , length of time supporting a club does not immediately make you a better fan, but I'm gonna bet that most of the people who went up to Middlesborough on a Wednesday night for an FA Cup tie didn't just pick up Chelsea last week. What I'm saying is, fine, if you got to appeal to people to sell shirts fine, but they arn't gonna be the ones there when things really go wrong. It's vital for the club to remain accessible for its core fanbase
