Perhaps FIFA should be looking into the modern day slavery and multiple deaths of builders working on the Qatar World Cup stadia

Funny thing is, we are getting banned for signing kids we never play

We're fucked in other words. 

If RLC, CHO, and Reece James were all 100% fit, Bakayoko, Michy and Zouma came back and rose to new heights, and Mount followed Lamps here to take Kovacic's place I suppose we could be optimistic at least. But with three of those injured long term it's very difficult to summon any optimism heading into the season.

Its going to be absolutely brutal watching all our rivals signing players we would've been after. Seeing the likes of United, Arse, and even Spuds who never spend buy great players is going to suck.

Pretty sure the club will ask for the transfer ban to be frozen while ban is in place and hope that the ban is realistically reduced to one window.

Ask for a freeze. Dont wait. Reputation or even a slightly longer ban wont matter if we cant sign anyone worth a damn.

This summer, while we are still in the Champions league, is our best bet to sign any decent players 

Do not risk waiting

I think our board like this situation. It gives us advantage over other clubs because nobody is expecting from us to sign players. I'm sure we are trying to sign top players at the moment and when we close the deals we will ask for ban to be frozen which will be in the matter of days if not hours after we request from CAS.

Reputation? Our reputation is awful. Everyone hates us. Everyone thinks we are a dirty club. There really is nothing to ruin.

It doesn't work like that, unfortunately

Who was responsible for this and are they being sacked? 

 

It is a puppet board stacked with SIBNEFT mafia, so the only way to 'sack' the person responsible is to buy it away from Abramovich. He refuses to sell to a Brit (due to the UK government refusing him visa renewal) so Jim Ratcliffe is not an option anymore. My main fear is IF he sells us, it will be to a Saudi head-chopper royal, especially Mr Bone-Saw himself, Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud. MBS and multiple other members of that barbarous, medieval, murderous, radical clan are sniffing around the EPL and other big leagues looking to purchase clubs. I cannot morally countenance such a sale, it will put my life-long allegiance to the club on life support. 

The other nightmarish possibility is that Russia foolishly tries to get involved in the yank's presidential election again (Trump is idiotically once again saying there is nothing wrong with a foreign government (ie. Russia) 'helping' him win). At that point, the level of simmering tensions may very well boil completely over, and a post-Brexit UK, tied even more so to the US (much due to a new trade deal/security linkage), may try and seize us (as a punitive measure against Putin and his oligarchic money men). if the level of sanctions are drastically upped. Abramovich is already under global scrutiny from the American and UK (especially post-Skripal, the main public reason given for his visa renewal being rejected) governments.

I have accepted this outcome for months. Yes, it will be brutal indeed, but sometimes when you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes. The main things that have gutted me are the injuries to CHO, RLC, and Reece James. THOSE were never in my calculations for the last 12 months.

Other than those, the rest  has been pretty much a foregone conclusion when we fucked up last summer's and then January's transfer windows and did NOT liquidate deadwood (and I mean ruthlessly liquidate), did NOT sell Eden for around to £200m (including add-ons, and replace as best we could) and failed at most all other transfers saving for Kepa (that was a given when we fucked up yet gain and did not sell Cuntois in summer 2017, and replace, plus when Oblak and Alisson both turned us down before Kepa was purchased) and  also Jorginho (and Jorginho was purely and only purchases as it was the only way Sarri would come and Napoli did not want him anymore due to style/formational change under Ancelotti)

My myriad number of posts on this overarching subject serve as a historical record of the validity of my future-forward laying out of all this happening (minus those 3 injuries of course). It has been a 2 year in the making slow-motion trainwreck, and the level of powerlessness to do anything to affect the real, temporal world that is Chels FC has been a source of great frustration for me. The only positive is that I have long-since resigned myself that this was indeed the wretched path upon which we would be cumulatively forced to trod upon moving forward, and the 3rd place finish and EL trophy were quite pleasant surprises.

I'd be surprised if we get it frozen. This is so stupid why did no one learn before?! 

I'd rather lose January window then the 2 summer windows.. Then again our board seem to make shit signings anyway so prob wouldn't use what we got wisely.

No, in theory, if we win the appeal, the only window we would end up missing is summer 2019. Summer 2020 (either way, win or lose) is fine UNLESS CAS increases our punishment, which, as I have been warning, is possible (just not likely, unless the new Football Leaks shit is taken into account, BUT I see that having to go through FIFA first).

IF the new shit goes to FIFA, and even more comes out, we maybe looking at a rinse, wash repeat of all this all over again next summer. AND, (I have to say I do NOT see this happening) if that happens, and a myriad number of further serious breaches are found, then we could be looking at what would amount to the destruction of the club for years at a top level. I am talking (again in theory and HIGHLY unlikely) 2 MORE FULL YEARS of bans (as we would be considered a serial offender), so that would wipe out 6 windows en toto: summer 2019, Jan 2020, summer 2020, Jan 2021, summer 2021, and finally January 2022. Summer 2022 would be our next transfer window. That is basically a partial death penalty and I see NOTHING, even the new shit from FB, that rises to warrant THAT level of draconian punishment. Neither FIFA or CAS want to literally destroy a top 10, to 15 footie club, they just want to sanction/punish when clear laws are broken to keep us and other abusers from breaking them.

A transfer ban until summer 2022, combined with a few bad injury breaks and say some refusals to renew of key plays (and obviously the age of many of our already ageing players) would put us into a possible relegation battle for the 2021-22 season. That is a level of club destruction that I cannot see FIFA and CAS and UEFA and the FA allowing to happen.

I think if THAT happened and the FA and UEFA allowed it, that might mean the breakup of the big five leagues (especially if other massive clubs are severely punished during that period too) and a new 20 team (or so) European Super League founded. All the big teams quite possible may tell the EPL, La Liga, Ligue 1,Serie A and the Bundesliga (AND, by proxy the FA, and the German, Italian, Spanish and French football associations, PLUS UEFA itself) to go fuck themselves with a rusty spanner.

I’ve never thought people just hates us, lot was jealous yes but our reputation was on high level as it should be.

Now we’re like a money laundering club with an owner kicked out of 🇬🇧 Sports industry doesn’t respect anymore. He’s way of doing business directly involved non football people around the club what leads us to breaking the rules and this transfer ban, the coaches out of our club every year, our best player by miles too and who knows how many players not even consider(ed) Chelsea as potentially new destination (anymore).

“When a club loses its grip on the transfer market. When you can’t attract the best players/talents anymore. When you lost a lot of football advisors over the ride...” Kristof Terreur one of the most respected sports/football/roumors journalists in the world on Chelsea FC back then...
