No, the loan's still on their books.
Although, despite most Chelsea fans fears (and our hopes), I suspect when he sells up he'll just write the loan off and take the profit that is above that amount (Forbes value them at £1.3 billion).
Really...my bad. I was sure I read somewhere that he had written it off. If nothing comes of it, it doesn't mean much, but at least there's scope for a feck oop :)

Is it wrong to hope he dies? :shifty:
Probably. But there are other things that could happen and you are allowed to hope for one of them, or several together, to happen.

For instance, with Morata out injured and Conte pissed at their desultory efforts to get Llorente, they could have a downturn in results. That could put them on their unique 2nd season cycle, culminating in the board sacking him. Seen as it has happened so many times, the Chavs could turn on the Ruskie - well they are a combination of the old volatile knuckle-draggers and the glory-hunters, who have no sense of what the Chavs were (and weren't) before Roman and his billion dollar loan. Roman could get fed up with the crowd at a nothing club, that he's bankrolled to success, giving him abuse. On top of which, he might finally figure out that he is on the list of those who have a right to be offended at their vile and repeated antisemitism. Out of sheer hubris, he could then call in the full amount of his loan. They could go bankrupt and if anything remains of their soulless club, they could end up back in the lower tiers playing in a corrugated-iron shack. Then a major investigation could reveal that their success was only achieved with corruption and bribery (on top of the massively inflated wages and transfer fees), resulting in them being stripped of their honours.* Wouldn't that be far more satisfying :)

*I, for one, will never, ever believe that they won the quarter, semi and final of the CL so improbably, after being comprehensively outplayed in each match (I mean, come-on, Bayern had something like 38 shots on target and missing a penalty...yeah, right). Oh and look, it just so happened that they were due to finish tenth or summit...and miss out on CL. Whoodda think it?

Cherries forums are quite quiet at the mo'; mostly going on about who is upfront if King is injured and since last really pushed us should they come again with a 5 man midfield.

Oh and there are 2 funny threads, 1stly Why didn't Defoe get called up for England again & 2ndly Harry Redknap Again? (which I'm guessing is some hearing Howe out & Harry in or just cos Harry lives there)

Harry's an old geezer nowadays. Due to like nature and stuff, he will naturally flock to the seaside to spend the rest of his years eating fish and chips, reading the Daily Mail and showering less frequently. I can't see him returning to manage them.
