    Pagan, Real Madrid successfully appealed to CAS in 2017 to get their transfer ban reduced and both of the other major Spanish Clubs have appealed to CAS similarly both unsuccessfully so precedent exists.

    Whether Chelsea will be succesful in their bid to get the transfer ban reduced is something else though presumably the Club must think there’s a chance of the ban being overturned following legal guidance or they wouldn’t be doing it we’ll see.

    I’m not sure it’s that much of a big deal now either way.

    999, I was thinking more of setting a new precedent of not buckling under pressure from the bigger clubs….Pagan

    Pagan, CAS is an Independent Arbitration Court for all Sport. They won’t overturn the punishment but after hearing from both sides they might reduce the ban if they think Chelsea have a case.

    Given that Real, Barca and Atletico have appealed to them on the same basis against the same charges I’m not sure Chelsea are setting any kind of precedent even if successful which I have my doubts it will be.

    In the last 3 Appeals for the same charge Real were the only one successful.

    Nine I can only speak for myself but when your lot & man city went crazy with the spending I for 1 didn’t really respect it that much when you won titles, to me they were brought trophy’s. yes I know it’s always been the same but it’s the extent all at once over a few seasons that made me feel that way. I know Liverpool are spending big but still nowhere near those 2 clubs spent. Throw in real, Barca etc & I think the C/L victory was a great achievement. I suppose it’s the underdog thing. I expect city to win the EPL because they have the best squad as their spending put them that far ahead of everyone else. As for Chelsea now, I think it’s a massive achievement to be playing so well with so many youngsters strutting their stuff & I really hope it continues. A top 4 finish would be a massive achievement all things considered & I hope you get there.
    Take care all.

    Oz,I totally get you but as you say it’s always been the same when Liverpool were dominating the League they were one of the biggest spenders and buying VVD, Alisson, Fabinho and Keita in the space of 6 months turned Liverpool from top 4 challengers to CL winners and potential PL Champions and good luck to you.

    But you’re right there is something special about a team based around a Clubs young players and Chelsea are playing some good football currently but we are still a team in transition and it will be interesting to see what happens when the transfer ban is lifted.

    Even Fergie added Roy Keane and Cantona to his Class of 92.😊 Cheers 9’s

    Marc van Hintum was technical director at Vitesse at the time Mount was there, and he’s told De Telegraaf just how highly he rates the player: “This is the best Chelsea player I have ever seen at Vitesse. Mason is so incredibly all-round. He can do everything and is extremely good in terms of mentality. I can’t really mention anything he is weak at.
    “His completeness makes him exceptional. Even without a transfer ban for Chelsea, he would have one hundred percent for sure been in their first team.”

    Jorginho

    Willian
    Mason Mount
    Christian Pulisic

    Tammy Abraham

    4-2-3-1 i assume will be that line up. although i would have liked Kante alongside Jorginho and rest Kovacic.

    You can see why Lampard has made Emerson our first choice LB. Alonso has defensive deficiencies that is becoming a problem to our left sided CB as it drags him out of position which then drags Zouma and Azpi also out of position. now let Lampard replace both of our fullbacks and Kovacic. because Kovacic looks tired.

    Ajax have been good but as good as their crosses were that’s two fortunate og’s.

    An early goal in the 2nd half for Chelsea and you never know but Ajax on tonight’s showing are probably the best team we’ve played all season. Going to be tough to keep Ajax out though.

    For me Kepa has to take some responsibility for the second goal, he needs to more commanding, he should have been in full pantomime mode in the build up, telling Apzi the player was behind him…..Pagan

    Fabulous team Ajax, best team we’ve played this season.

    Great comeback keeps us in the hunt. Brilliant game of football

    Mount is potentially a big loss though looks like his ankle again.

    I think Frank has to start playing Reece James regularly now this boy is going to be a real star too.
