It was easy to forget he was ever there.
Good financial move for him, but that's about it.

Nigel Pearson said he was a complex character,

What really seemed to have got to him, was when Roy, overlooked him for sick note Wishere.

never the same after that.

I’m reading that Three will remain Peter.
John Rogers, Chelsea Football Club’s head of global partnerships, says: ‘Following the recent pause in their activities, the Club is pleased to have resumed our work with Three and we look forward with excitement to the start of the new season, together.

'We would like to thank all Club partners for their support now and in the future.’

Three should give the club a bonus for continuing to advertise their brand when they had withdrawn

Bruce Buck to step down as Chairman of Chelsea Football Club.​

Chelsea Football Club today announced that Bruce Buck who has served as Chairman since 2003, will be stepping down from his role effective 30th June. He will continue to support the Club as a Senior Adviser.

During Buck’s chairmanship, Chelsea solidified its position as one of the world’s elite football clubs and a globally recognised brand followed by millions. In that time, the men’s team earned 18 major trophies (more than any other English club) while Chelsea FC Women won 12 major trophies.

The Club also grew its commercial revenues significantly, established world class training facilities at Cobham, and developed one of the best youth academies in football. In 2010, Buck, as Trustee and Chairman, helped establish The Chelsea FC Foundation, which supports a broad range of initiatives including increasing access to youth athletics, hosting education and employment programmes, and leading anti-discrimination campaigns.

'I am proud to have helped Chelsea realize great success on the pitch and make a positive impact in the community,' said Buck. 'Now is the right time to step down and let new ownership build on the strong foundations we have in place. The owners have a compelling vision for Chelsea’s future, and I look forward to helping them achieve it in this new role alongside our incredible staff, players, coaches and supporters.'

'Bruce has led Chelsea Football Club to the highest levels of international and domestic football, while also developing one of the most active social responsibility projects in sport,' said Todd Boehly, Chelsea Football Club co-controlling owner. 'We thank Bruce for his service and his commitment to the Club.'

'We look forward to backing Thomas Tuchel, Emma Hayes and their teams, and will provide proactive, unbending support to make Chelsea’s loyal fans and our partners proud.'

Lukaku.
Biggest waste of money ever they are saying.
Near £100 million then shipped out on loan after 1 season.
Teams always take a risk buying players from abroad with no premier league experience but Lukaku knew the league and knew what to expect.
Major let down.

There was just an outside chance that may have been a different story had Chilwell and James been fit all season, in TDF terms they would have been his domestiiques.

I honestly expected him to go on and get the golden boot after his arrival, he looked an absolute monster at Inter and there was no reason for him not to be a success. Really shocked at the way it went but he has been dire.

His PL goal scoring record is still pretty good in terms of games player and goals scored, almost a goal every 2 games. Not what you’d expect for the fee paid though.

I have to say that I'll start to feel a bit easier about this Transfer Window once a few concrete announcements are made. It would appear that we are in danger of getting left behind as other clubs have got on with their business while we appear to be in danger of being left behind.

I thought it would happen but very sad to see Petr shown the door, I hope the new regime don’t cut all ties with former players who up until now have served the club in ambassador/corporate roles.

I read that Sterling has agreed personal terms. Who’s going to make way for him?
