Roman appears to have lost much of his fortune and Buck has just admitted they may have to sell players in the current financial turmoil

Chelsea have problems? Yeah, their fans!

Seriously though, this is fantastic news. Even if they went bust it wouldn't matter because they have no real fans anyway.

I imagine the board meeting went like this:

Board member one: Why didn't we get Robinho
Board member two: We were being asked to pay more than what he's worth because we are minted
Board member one: How can we stop this happening again:
Board member two: Pretend we are poor

Chelsea bankrupt and Spurs relegated in the same season?

I'd be in danger of breaking my arm!

I'm sure the F.A. would not dock them points if they went into admin though..

Just like with the Tevez affair they wouldn't want to hurt their 'fans' (i.e. Chelsea scum in the media).

Oh, they would. They are new money. It is the old school cartel of Liverpool, Man Utd and Arsenal that get the favours.

If there is an element of truth behind this, then my day just became better. Perhaps we will see a little less of the smug face.

To think just a year ago the gap of money between the Premiership and Championship was "at its biggest ever". Seeing teams like Chelsea having a huge debt and West Ham, Spurs, Newcastle struggling makes me feel good inside.

Diggers digs in?

Chelsea were going to f*cked at some point anyway, since Abramovich is owed the £500 million that he's "lent" to them. Also pleased to Usmanov's stock plummeting, even given some of the games more dubious owners today, this guy is really down there. Don't wanna say too much, as he's already had legit blogs citing his malfeasances taken down...

They have been for a while. The club's in a fair bit of debt, not to mention sponsored by AIG who are one of many companies struggling in the current climate.

Which is nice :)

If only the Glazers hit serious financial trouble.

If only the Glazers hit serious financial trouble.

Man United was completely debt free had redeveloped sold Trafforrd and generated more cash than any club in the world whilst - by PL standards - keeping a large percentage of its tickets at reasonable prices.

Now the fans are screwed royally, the club is 666million red devishly in debt and controlled a weird jewish floridian family who have never kicked a ball in their lives.

Football has not just sold its soul, but whored out its little sister too.

Fair play to those that set up 'real united'

I hope the club goes bankrupt, and the fans take control, there is enough of them.

Give me the robber baron abumabitch over the grazers any day, at least he has put in his own (robber baron) money and has genuinely fallen in love with the game.

The glazers haven't got a clue what the game is or how it is played, their only interest is how many litres of dollars can they squeeze from the man u cash cow.

Is the correct answer.

FCUM fans have been doing a great job trying to bring to peoples attention just how much trouble United are in but it is difficult because people only see the success on the pitch and not the increasingly shaky financial basis it is on.

Is the correct answer.

Chelsea are £500m in debt, since he has only loaned them the cash. Not such an altruistic measure since he could essentially bankrupt the club if he felt like it. Hence all this "breaking even by 2010" bollocks, which will NEVER happen, yet they don't mind trying to coerce ordinary fans into remortgaging their houses for a half season ticket. Maybe he "loves" football, but he runs the club like a spoilt child and also has the son of satan himself as Chief Executive. I'm not saying I prefer the glazers but differentiating their evilness is a bit of a muchness really.

I had to look up how to spell the word schadenfreude - delight in another's misfortune. The best word in the German language, and how appropriate here.
