The number of players that Chelsea has given away at a loss to the club is obscene. It is only Roman's money that is keeping them afloat. For any other club it would be the death knell.
" For 19 Premiership clubs, £100m equates to almost six years of TV money - a lifeline in the modern game on an annual basis. Any other club who haemorrhaged a similar sum would be, at best, looking to sack their entire board, or at worst, liquidated. To fritter away £100 million really is something else. If it wasn't so grotesque it would be admirable in its audacity. "

The same thing happens in the USA with baseball with no restrictions on the salary cap. The NY Yankees spend money obscenely on players. Alex Rodriguez has cost them $250 million dollars for his contract and since he came in the Yankees have not won a World Series. That is why there is so much to cheer when smaller clubs like the Florida Marlins and the Arizona Diamonbacks win the World Series over the Yankees. And that Chelsea is soon going to find out the same through its revolving door policy for players. If Mourniho does not win, look for that same revolving door.
