The Eve of the Champions League Final

The build up began the day after the semi-finals finished, but we are into the final push.  I have to admit that it is a very exciting time for us Chelsea supporters and no doubt for the reds too.

However this post is to be a simple dig at those who like to make a big deal of the fact that Chelsea ‘buy’ their titles and silverware.  It is always targeted at CFC, so lets have a look at the finances of Chelsea’s opposition tomorrow and compare them to Manchester United’s.

….According to the latest accounts of Chelsea Limited, the company which owns the football club, Chelsea owed £736m to all its creditors. United’s accounts, also recently filed at Companies House, showed total creditors at £764m…..

Funnily enough, 500+ million of that is a loan from our owner.  Kind of puts things into perspective, the league champions owe that sort of money outside of their own club, doesn’t it….. Maybe the fingers should be pointed elsewhere in future.  But, of course they won’t be….

Hopefully my next football post is about my joy at seeing my team win the Champions League for the first time in our history.  By this time tomorrow I will know the answer and Roman, if everything goes to plan, will have had his win in Moscow.
