    Young blue- could it not be that Klopp agrees with sanctions against an individual who it appears is close to the war criminal, Putin?

    I’m 100% sure that is not the perspective he is looking from this issue! as a rival manager, he is happy Chelsea to run out of business. because it will eliminate competition.

    999…I guess I’m just a little shocked that people are putting their club ahead of the dreadful actions of Putin and the atrocities being suffered by the Ukrainian people. I just think it’s a sad indictment on people’s priorities. And I’m genuinely feeling really sorry for the true Chelsea fans and I know every team has it’s less desirable element of fans. But I still believe they should have got virulently behind the team and the club and not Abramovich. Almost create a siege mentality if that’s not a highly inappropriate metaphor to use (which it is!).

    Anyway I dont want to fall out with anyone on here cos it must be very concerning for you all. But Chelsea as a club will survive, but maybe not as the force you’ve been for the last 20 years.

    Young blue – Klopp has a history of speaking out on social and political issues, and is well known for his liberal views on housing, poverty and crime. But you’re 100% sure he’s just glad to get rid of Chelsea as a rival? Right! To some people what is happening on the other side of Europe is somewhat more important.

    That is not how I see. nobody is mourning about Roman facing sanctions. but the issue that many quartets had is how the UK government handled it, especially after Roman stated that he will not benefit from the sale of Chelsea, but still went ahead thrown Chelsea into chaos. if the reason for these sanctions is to prevent Roman from benefiting from this sale, then the U.K Government could have taken charge of the sale and still allowed the sale to go ahead.

    coming back to Klopp, it’s very clear that he is looking from the perspective of a competitor. he should have been diplomatic, but the fact that he came out to show support at a time when the wounds are still fresh, shows the true intention of his words.

    I just don’t think Klopp was aware what he was saying

    I still think you are making assumptions on his thinking. Perhaps he should have been diplomatic but if he’s asked if Abramovich should be sanctioned, he’s entitled to state his true feeling.

    The Government haven’t exactly covered themselves in glory in their handling of all this, but that can come as no surprise to anyone who has anything more than a fleeting interest in British politics. But they are not blocking any sale, are they? While it might complicate a sale, what they’ve done surely wont stop a sale. Maybe I’m wrong as I havent read everything there is on the matter.

    And what is your opinion on the chanting of Abramovich’s name during the game last night?

    Hightown, tbh I don’t think chanting Abramovich’s name means fan’s don’t care about what’s happening in Ukraine. And the fans at Norwich weren’t just chanting for Abramovich they went through the whole Chelsea repotoire.

    As I said in my post Ukraine transcends everything imo.

    Where Chelsea go from here will be dependent on a new owner, selling to buy in the transfer market which has been very much the strategy in the past 5 years anyway and bringing through our own Broja, Gallagher, Gilmour, Ampadu and Colwill could all be added to the squad in the Summer at no outlay.

    But it’s very uncertain times if you’re a Chelsea fan currently and worrying, any fan of a football Club if they were in this position should understand that. Neither the Club, the players or the fans are responsible for what’s happening in Ukraine but all of them are being punished.

    I don’t agree with the Roman chanting, and I have stated clear where I stand from this Ukraine war. Thomas Tuchel has also stated his stand and rebuked the fans. but we don’t control what they do, even the Chelsea supporters group have asked them to stop these chants.

    YB, I think the requirement to refrain from the chanting of Abramovich’s name related to the period of remembering Ukraine at the beginning of the match.

    It’s difficult for Chelsea fans to forget the previous 19 years of Abramovich prior to the terrible events going on currently in Ukraine.

    Also, I assume there are civil liberties in the U.K that protects the freedom of expression and speech. so those fans have their right to exercise, but personally, I don’t agree with chanting during the Ukraine tributes. let’s hope an amicable solution is found before more trouble comes.

    The Media never learn do they?!

    A Club Manager’s is to prepare his team for the next game to try and achieve a winning result. Why then are questions asked that in honesty, he’s probably just as much as in the dark as many of us. Tuchel’s handled both the press conference and sky interview first class.

    A lot of understandable emotion around. Roman deserved to be sanctioned and sadly for Chelsea fans their club suffering is one of the consequences of such action, but there are far more important matters in the world at the moment. Chelsea fans have my sympathy but I also agree with the sanctioning although that doesn’t mean I want a rival team to suffer.

    The chanting however especially during the applause for Ukraine was utterly despicable. And it didn’t sound like a few either, shameful for your club.

    From what has been unearthed over the last 24 hours is Seismic for Chelsea Football Club. There’s a lot to process and come to terms with. This is brand new in the world of football and English Football in my eyes. 18 Years or so of ownership.

    Various reports suggest that Roman Abramovich has now reached an agreement with the Government for the sale of the Club and that the sale will now go ahead as it’s the Government’s wish that the Club be allowed to be sold. Reportedly the cut off date for all bids is now the 18/03.

    Nine,

    That is a very good step in the right direction. Although i feel, the UK government should have take this approach before the sanctions came into effect but anyway, i hope this sale is completed on time. Many rival fans are rejoicing with our tirbulations. But the dooner this ends, the better for the club.

    I believe that the government will allow the club to be sold ASAP,. Bozo and cheerleader Dorris don’t want any bad publicity at this time. From a pure football perspective the sooner the better.
    Who will have the final say on the buyer?

    You would think Roman Adlab it’s still his Club he won’t be getting any money for it under the terms of the sanction but he will want to pass it on to who he thinks will be the best fit for the Club going forwards.

    But who knows in this situation the most important thing whoever the new owner may be and how he may be selected is to get the Club sold asap because it can’t survive in the current circumstances.

    Personally I favour Nick Candy if he can raise the finances.

    I have seen this article today, it’s a very interesting article that sheds light on the Saudi Media group and their plans for the club.

    Seems that the Chelsea fans have left the house since the sanctions. I would like to know how far the bids have gone. since the deadline for the bids, now news from it. at one stage I was reading a consortium led byTodd Boehly is leading, then came Rickets Family who I’m against.

    In other news, Roman was poisoned in Kyiv, plenty is going around. hopefully, this sale process goes as smoothly as possible.
