Do they really think were going to believe this tosh ? Roman has made every Chelsea player very, very rich, its hardly likely they will be worrying about bonuses considering theyre all multi-millionaires.

Of course they want more money, just look at the salary demands a certain new bindipper made. Having said that, it's a silly story, not to say a non-story.

A Blues insider was quoted as saying: "The players are furious and there is a huge row going on behind the scenes.

"They're champions and are rewarded with a pay cut - it's hardly a great way to motivate them.

"It was a big shock and they're not happy. Now they're going into the season under a cloud."

"They thought it was it was just a normal pre-season meeting.

"But instead they were told it was all change and most of the bonuses they'd enjoyed had been scrapped or reduced."

Was this "Blues insider" Joe Cole?

Not even going to bother reading it. Sonds like more media BS at the start of the season, and again them trying to make us look like a club with money greedy players who are more worried about their Bentley's and Fois Gras than actually playing footy!

The Chelsea boss also rejected suggestions players were unhappy at the decision by owner Roman Abramovich to cut bonuses.

"I have not spoken to the players about this, but I am not interested in it because it is a deal between the players and the owners," Ancelotti said.

"They did not speak with me about it and if I have to watch how they play, I would not say they are unhappy about it"

Very interesting that Roman has cut bonuses, he certaintly has become strict on the money department.

Players looked fine today though so The Sun's story looks like complete BS.

Not so interesting, after having a listen Buck on talksport he played this down and said it was all apart of balancing the books and the players seem happy.

You don't really notice a bonus if your own 50,000k a week!

Yeah, very sensible actions by the club - I understand bonus' are nice, but the players won't live on bread and water without them.

Building for the future - I like how the club are conducting their business at the moment. Our youths look promising (some IMO are ready for first team football), we're cutting back on needless costs, reducing the age of our squad/wage bill... We know how the media see this - Roman has fallen out of love with the club... but it's far from that, he wants to ensure our future.

What will be interesting is if Man City don't win the Premier League in 3 or 4 years. Cut his losses and leave?

That's what people were saying after our first season of the Roman era. Then along came Jose and the rest is history. Is Mancini the man to bring them the trophy?

We had a young squad, we had/have great team spirit, we were Champions League and we had a great manager. Winning the league in his first season was pivotal. As I said - if they go a few years without the league - will he stay?

After watching the game against WBA I finally understand why roman cut the bonuses. He had to because he knew that he would go broke with all of the goals we are going to score this season ::ChElSeaFLag::

Drogba can finally afford a golden toilet to go with his golden boot...

difference between Chelsea in 2003 and Man City in 2009 can be summed up in two words:

Lampard, Terry.

We already had the two outstanding England players and all it took was to get the quality of the squad up to their level and we could challenge (which we did before Mourinho came in. ManCity are still nowhere near Chelsea under Ranieri 03-04).

Man City proves that we did not 'buy' the league from scratch, but boosted an outstanding core.
