Chelsea learn when UEFA will decide if Real Madrid will be expelled from the Champions League

Chelsea already have one eye on Tuesday's trip to Madrid where they will face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final first leg, but there is a chance the game may not go ahead

https://www.football.london/Chelsea-fc/news/Chelsea-real-madrid-champions-league-20447794

 

Chelsea should find out whether their Champions League semi-final tie with Real Madrid will go ahead at some point today.

The Blues are preparing to face Los Blancos in the first leg of their semi-final tie on Tuesday at Valdebebas, but the build-up to the game hasn't exactly been routine.

It's been a hectic week for both clubs after each of them decided to become a founding member of The Super League, receiving intense criticism on the back of it.

Within 48 hours, Chelsea withdrew from the project following the disapproval of their supporters, while Real Madrid remain intent to make it work.

Fuck yeah my home town team, first live Chelsea game for me since Chelsea Spurs in 2016! 

I live in England! Everyone here supporting Olympiakos too!

There is much need. Much need indeed. Liverpool fans have to be the most annoying, entitled bunch of twats to exist. A little dose of this reality would serve them well if they weren't so delusional.

Significant sections of fans from Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal and Spurs want their owners out.

The Liverpool owners have done a fine job,  but the Furlough scandal and now this, is a step too far for their hardcore socialist beliefs.

The Kroenkes just told Arse fans to fuck off, they are not selling

zero chance it is us, or citeh

spuds unlikely unless someone stuffs billions into Lewis's mouth (I truly hate that fucker, he team up with Soros in mid September 1992, 2 and a half months before I was born, and tried to destroy the British pound, my mum was in FOREX trading at that time in the City, and the stress, so the doctors said, ended up with me being born 6 weeks premature, yet another reason (plus he tried to fuck up our nation) I HATE Spuds more than any other sport entity on the planet)

so that leaves FSG or the Glazers

flip a coin

I slightly favour (meaning I think they are the more likely) FSG, but wold not be shocked if it was the Glazers

Real Madrid could be without six key first-team players for CL clash vs Chelsea

https://www.thechelseachronicle.com/champions-league/report-real-madrid-could-be-without-six-key-first-team-players-for-cl-clash-vs-Chelsea/

Chelsea may have been handed a huge advantage going into their Champions League tie with Real Madrid as Zinedine Zidane’s injury concerns continue to mount.

Marca reported that Sergio Ramos and Lucas Vazquez would definitely miss the European clash next week.

Ramos has only recently started his recovery from a calf problem, whilst Vazquez is out for the season with cruciate ligament damage.

Federico Valverde is the other guaranteed absentee.

It was confirmed on Sunday that he had tested positive for coronavirus, meaning a self-isolation period of ten days that covers the Chelsea game.

There is also major doubt surrounding Ferland Mendy’s fitness.

In the same Marca article, they state that the French full-back is being assessed as he overcomes a muscular overload.

Zidane might be sweating over the health of Toni Kroos and Luca Modric as well.

Neither trained with the group yesterday, as the Madrid manager wraps his two midfielders up in cotton wool.

Kroos and Modric have missed the past two La Liga matches, with abductor and back-issues respectively.

None of the owners are selling. Do not believe for one second that rumour is true about an owner from the big 6 is thinking of selling.

Why?

Because I already said this and it’s confirmed by Perez: The SL isn’t dead. All we did is pushed it back.

The clubs have a binding contract with Perez. It has not been broken. All what the clubs did was ask to withdraw and Perez decided to halt the SL for now and rethink the strategy, that’s it.

The money is still on the table. They just have to hold on a little longer. Why the feck will any owner sell now?

£8m is supposedly the pull-out penalty

I don’t know if that’s true, but Perez has confirmed the clubs have a binding contract with the SL team and said this again even after the collapse.

£8m is way too small of a penalty anyway, that wouldn’t harm any club. I think it’s more than that.

IF we try and drag this out and have another go in a year or two, I am OUT

done

I will not follow a club that goes into some 'no chance at relegation' fucking yank franchise system that ends up with us ostracised and our player banned

nope, not having it

I will just find a smaller club to support, like wifey's QPR

maybe they get lucky and a rich owner buys them and gets them up to 'stay perm or so in the EPL' level

or maybe Brentford or Fulham

I have no interest in some plastic, tricked-up phoney league

Quote

Whether the clubs will be in a position to rejoin at a later date isn’t clear, and given that the reason for doing so initially appeared to be centred on a financial windfall, the news that each club will be find €300m for backing out won’t be music to their ears.

I assume that goes to Real Madrid and just like that they resolved their financial situation. 

I bet they did that in purpose knowing it will fail but to collect that money for themselves.

With the Super League out of the way, it's now UEFA's turn to face the problems with their silly Champions League reform plans...

Good number of Gooners have turned up telling Kronke to do one.

It's a pointless protest.

Most of them will still back the likes of Arteta, Xhaka and Bellerin while buying merchandise and tickets.

No point protesting against owners if you then go and back their symptoms (players and a manager only there due to their lack of ambition) and line their pockets.

United fans are just as bad, they claim they hate the Glazers then gas up top four finishes and claim they're progressing, exactly what they want.

Honestly why should West Ham be in the CL based on one fluke season? It is still merit based if you award teams who are consistently playing at higher level. Teams like West Ham are too volatile, one season they may push for push for top 4 and next season they may struggle to stay at the PL level.

Are you serious? Take your head out of your arse.... if a team finishes in a CL spot they deserve to play CL. Thats how competition works. If you don’t like it maybe find another sport.

Its like saying whats the point in us winning the title with Jose and then with Conte as the seasons after each of those we finished miles off the pace. 

And that would also spit in the face of Leicester’s amazing achievement back when they won the league, which was an absolutely huge, historical moment.

He shouldn’t be sacked, let’s be real everything goes through Roman and he has to sign off on it. Also it is unwise to give in to bully tactics.

Bully tactics?

The Super League could have potentially derailed 3 of the major domestic leagues, the CL and all the divisions underneath each domestic leagues.

By the way these clubs not giving into the PL and the demands of the fans who undoubtedly want change also at board level after they basically tried to strong arm the leagues and UEFA into giving them want they wanted by saying they had the intentions of joining a super league, would be an absolute joke. 

Its a good job fans cannot get into the stadiums because there will still be huge fall out to the end of the season and probably for a period during the summer to the new season starts because of this.

For sure, a one off protest by a couple of thousand fans isn't going to make him leave. But next season  fans will be back in stadiums (hopefully) and you could have literally tens of thousands making it very clear they want their owners to leave. Not just chants, but repeated mass walkouts during games. If they carried that on for several weeks I think that might well be enough to make owners quit.

Trouble is, in this economic climate, who's going to buy a football club for a couple of billion?

Good point. The fans will make their wishes clear that is for sure.

The second point i think you are way off. Everyone who owns big sums in stocks has multiplied their wealth. Recessions and the subsequent recovery are the best time to grow a fortune and many billionaire have done so. There will be tons of buyers out there.
