Who Will Cash-Strapped Chelsea Sell This Summer?

Chelsea announced a £65.7m loss for last year, a staggering sum, particularly as it marks an improvement over the loose-pursed past.  Though the tangible sum is less, the impact will be felt more, after Roman Abramovich as billionaire Roman Abramovich potentially lost the bulk of his fortune.  Abramovich’s woes have […]

Chelsea Sack Scolari — Bring on Zola !

A strange turn of events at Chelsea where Luiz Felipe Scolari has been sacked and Avram Grant, the man Scolari replaced, has emerged as one of the candidates on Chelsea’s shortlist to replace the former World Cup-winning manager.
