Bridgeboy

Do you think the players would take a pay cut to have a new owner and Jose back ?

No chance! Which is why as long as Roman is signing cheques we will not see the mass exodus of players that the media have antiicpated as long as Chelsea carry on being competitive.

The very vast majority of top level footballers care about their bank balance and about winning trophies. As long as that they are playing for a successful side and they are maximising their eanring s they will soon forget who used to be in charge!

Who voted "yes"? icon_lol.gif

Face reality... There is no feeling in football anymore. Not many players are ready to do something just for the sport anymore. Before they played football because they loved to. When it just started, they weren't even getting paid to play pro-football. They had jobs and played football on the weekend. Now it's all about money. Most loved players leave clubs and fans for more money - something that never happened before.

I was just thinking yesterday, watching Everton play Boro, how things have changed. A lot of their players played for so many clubs in the Premiership. There is no love for the club they play for, because they know they could be off next month. Things have changed, and it's just getting worse.

Assuming for a second there are 25 players (for simplicities sake) in the Chelsea first team, each player would have to give up 4 million pounds a year in wages to cover the loss of 100 million pounds a year in revenue/investment.

Thats $83,333 pounds a week. I'm not sure of the numbers, but that is probably more than alot of the players at Chelsea earn. Isn't Ashley Cole on about $60,000 pounds a week?.

*edit*

I did some quick research.

(note: alot of this research is out of date)

It appears 100 million pounds goes a long way to paying Chelsea's entire wage bill.

maybe ticket prices should go up .....

Uhh oohhhh

Now you've forfeited your life icon_wink.gif

In all seriousness though if we lose Abramovich, ticket revenue will actually drop because alot of the JCLs will disappear as we disappear down to the Coca Cola Championship. Ditto Tv revenue, etc.

Yeah, Just like Liverpool, Manu, West Ham, Man City, Villa, Portsmouth, all who have recently lost their chairman/owners! icon_rolleyes.gif

Nonsense. Loyalty has very little if any place in modern football. The last player to get an ovation when he left was Franco and that was from members of the most cynical of professions namely journalism.

Even JT supposedly blues through and through was smeared during his recent pay negotiations. Would he have stayed if he had not got his ?130000 ? That is the question we'll never know the answer to. Who's next ? Lamps?

Their owners weren't paying 100 million + pounds a year every year out of their own pocket just to turn on the lights.

Bluenut that is what I want a true chairman and board who know the do s and donts of fooball. Roman is not going to give us that, we need someone at the helm who has already been in some sort of high position in sports, Bernie Eclestone and the Italian chap would have been perfect. I hope Roman learns from what he has done wrong and can at least try to listen to what we want.
