Is this guy a tosser or right to cash in?

Can't really pass judgment on it without knowing the circumstances. To be entirely honest just now I would sell it. We are really struggling at the moment from a financial perspective thanks largely to the hike in utility bills and general increases in prices at the supermarket etc. Every month my overdraft grows and at the moment we are feeling pretty down about affording Mini Loz's birthday and Christmas for both the kids.

So for me the choice would be between keeping a great piece of club history or digging my family out of a pretty big hole, giving my kids not just one great Christmas but lots of great Christmases and we can also send Mini Loz to all the fun after school things that you need to pay for that we currently can't. To be honest when I put it like that it would be a bloody easy decision to make!

The guy is a 'Company Director' of somewhere, so I'm guessing he's got a few quid in the bank already and in that sort of position, he should the give proceeds to charity!

He's clearly milking it for all it's worth.. 'Roman to give him 100 grand'?

Roman should now claim it back as property of Chelsea Football Club now Jose is gone.

Well said, Mod! He should donate the proceeds to this Shed End Forum!

I don't blame him at all really, especially as Jose has now left.

It's the sort of thing I really, really wouldn't want to sell, but like all things with a strong personal meaning that are also worth a lot of money; after time they'll just be put somewhere hidden away (like he said, it was just stashed away in his safe) and you start to wonder what you could do with the money, and it's time to move it on.

He'll still have the memories, a very lucky guy I guess :(

being a company director doesnt mean jack, you can have a small business and not be making any money and still have that title.

tbh, after staring lovingly at it for a couple of years, any item is gonna lose its shine and right now everyone is broke as hell - and if he didnt get a tracker mortgage then well.... kids gotta be fed....

Let me get this clear. The guy selling is a company director called................ Sebastien! Reckons he's been a Matt Harding ST since '93?

hhhhhhhhhm. Personally I'd like a bit more proof of his allegedly, "Blue Blood". Sounds like a JCL cashing in to me.

Good luck to him, i would do the same thing. Times are hard for everyone, and your family come first.

I have given (the same as most football fans) thousands to my club over the years, i wouldn't see any of the players giving me any of their hard earned dough if times got too hard for me, so again good luck to him.
