Pack your bags Abramovich, the Chelsea fairytale is OVER!
Time to rip it up and start again, Chelsea
What the Christ! Last night the world was treated to probably the worst fairytale of all time, akin to Cinderella meeting Prince Charming, only to find that beneath the sparkling veneer he’s actually really anal and a bit clinically depressed. It was all there for the Chelsea team and Abramovich – the big final, in Russia, the captain (Mister Chelsea, apparently) seconds away from making dreams come true. Then they blew it.
After years of hurling money around willy-nilly desperately striving to create something wonderful, has the Chelsea team finally imploded under the weight of expectation? The summer will surely see the likes of Drogba, Carvalho (absolutely awful last night) Malouda (shocking) Anelka (non-plussed) and even Lampard head off in search of a less hated team.
And could that be it for Abramovich? His interest in Chelsea has appeared to be in free fall since they lost the Carling Cup, and with revelations that all the money he’s piled in is just one big interest free loan, it wouldn’t be too much of a shock to see him disappear into the shadows. After all, Russia was supposed to be his crowning glory. It can never get this good again.
So next season – JT? Coley? Bunch of new boys? New manager?
