    In February 2019, FIFA ruled that Chelsea had breached rules relating to the registration of players under 18. The ban has genuine ramifications for a team who, according to Transfermarkt, have an annual player expenditure in the region of £100m and who have always relied upon the short pulses of improvement that player trading can provide.

    It is good thing that happened to Chelsea tbh. Now they are forced to use what they already have instead of buy it. Maybe they may hit jackpot in one of those players that they both buy and from the club itself.

    Why don’t they ban Man City for consecutive overspending. They don’t even get a lot of sales back from player sales so it’s pure money being spent at least Chelsea have always sold players and for high prices. City and Arabs are corrupt

    Shows that you can and should play youth and not spend a billion pounds on overpriced, overrated, overhyped players. Like many say, it’s a blessing in disguise for Chelsea. Abraham, Tomori, Mount and Hudson Odoi are doing just fine and they don’t need any replacements.

    Very well explained but thanks to FIFA, we r finding how good our development squad is and our youth r our future. We have to selective buyer's from here on as we have some really good player's in our club.

    Thank fuck for the transfer ban, otherwise we wouldn't have played Mount, Tomori & Abraham. Pulisic needs to play a lot more, and I feel seriously bad for sexy Giroud

    Madrid needs to rely a bit more on youth instead of Galacticos

    That feeling then ManCity did exactly the same thing as Chelsea but they just had to pay 500k to Fifa and thats it

      They were charged with only two counts and pled guilty. Chelsea were charged with 29 counts and tried to fight the charges. Big difference.

    I went to a school in Surrey and in year 8 some Croatian lad called Karlo Ziger joined and was a Chelsea youth keeper and said he played for some massive Croatian club (forgot their name) so he must’ve been one of the 29 breaches 😂😂😂

    As a Chelsea fan, I'm really happy for the ban. Simply because Roman Abramovich can save some money & we can use it to buy a big world class player whenever we feel like it. As a business, if we're successful this season it would also be great for him to gain something back without needing spend the funds.

    FIFA is furious at all those bribed and money illegally exchanged behind the scenes.
    They did not get a cut so they acted with such speed and zeal.

    I thought the ban was supposed to be a punishment? All it's done is give me one of the more enjoyable Chelsea seasons in recent years and it's not even over yet.

    Transfer ban has probably been the best thing to happen to Chelsea ! I think they will come out stronger at the end of the ban because it has meant they have had to bring on their very very talent youngsters . They might not win anything this season but the experience they gain this season will make for a great future .

    If we didnt have the ban...
    Sarri probably wouldnt have left
    Which means that we would still play old players like Giroud and Pedro
    Which means no Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori
    In a way, this has helped Chelsea

    So a transfer ban for solicitating underage players has been offset by said players stepping up to the first team. Cheats never prosper....

  • drthvdr
    drthvdr Month ago

    I had very low expectations of this season because of the ban and also because of the loss of Hazard as well as the injuries of Reece, Callum, and Ruben at the beginning of the season. I always believed that Abraham should've been given a chance at the club and not wrote off because of his spell as Swansea but I never expected him to be this good although I expect him to slow down. The board have notoriously made terrible signings and because Cech is now there to advise Marina, I think that our signings will be much more focused and improve the team straight away. As much as I love the youth and the interconnectedness of the team right now, we undoubtedly need more depth in positions if we want to challenge the likes of City and Liverpool. I expected 5th this season but with Spurs in turmoil (you love to see it) I think top 4 is surely on the cards unless Spurs and Man U dramatically improve which I don't foresee.
