    Of course what he's omitting there is that they're being forced to do all that, because the pitch isn't owned by the club!

    Question is - could they? As noted by @Ribble above/below the Chelski Pitch Owners Club have a big say in how things get done there. I think they're pretty restricted in terms of having flexible facilities on this basis - those owners care about the football club, not the commercials so would be unlikely to back something more open to commercial use or for other sports IMO.

    Exactly, also omitting the fact they actually lodged a bid for the Battersea Power Station site a few years ago now - so perhaps this was to force the push for redevelopment but if the commercials stacked up, i'm sure Abramovich would have made it work.

    I have to admit I'd forgotten about Chelscum Pitch Owners.

    It was Ribble that reminded me - it's presented them with a few issues over the years in terms of making commercial decisions for the club as the fans want what's best for the fans, so can be somewhat difficult.

    It's fantastic leverage to have over a club like that but i have to say - if a consortium of Spurs fans had the same level of sway over what we did and when (as a business, not as a football club) i think we wouldn't be where we are at present. No disrespect to our fellow fans whose input may be better than some owners but against someone like Levy, i think we'd have been a hindrance rather than a help over the years :)

    I don't usually cheer up when I see a player gets injured- but for this piece of shite I'll make an exception. (I just wish it would stop him talking TBH)

    I posted the above 45 minutes ago and since then I can't get a thought out of my head.
    Belgium training- both Toby and Jan on one side and Hazard on the other.
    Toby and Jan clatter into Hazard resulting in him not getting injured; but with his theatrics and showmanship stumbles causing him to twist his ankle.
    This just makes the world alright by me!

    They'll obviously spend their way out of it, but a bad start to the summer for Chelsea. Costa desperate to leave and Hazard not back until September. How enjoyable!

    Costa's been told by Conte that he's no longer in his plans and can leave. Hardly surprising when he was pushing for a move recently.

    I guess this fits in with the Lukaku rumours.

    Lukaku replacing Costa is a massive downgrade if you ask me

    He's not as good but at least you're get a professional who won't take his eye of the job, swings and roundabouts

    Everton fans might disagree, they say that he put in zero effort for the last few games and were pleased Kane ended up winning the golden boot as they thought it served him right.
