The recent news covered by Vital Chelsea, Click Here, whereby we covered the inference that Roman Abramovich had rejected a bid, from the billionaire businessman, Jim Ratcliffe, to buy Chelsea Football Club, certainly provoked a response on the social network sites.

Delving through the many posts left, on various feeds, we’ve tried to assemble a balanced view from the Chelsea supporters who have had something to say on the subject matter.
However, it’s fair to say that there are far more supporters wanting Roman to stay than there are to go.
Here is a selection:
Roman selling the club is one of the worst possible scenarios. Only one way we would be going.

Clearly there are concerns that a change could be a change for the worse, definitely a case of, although I’m not sure the words are apt, better the devil you know.
Continuing, others have complete faith in the Russian, remarking:
In Roman I trust

Well, it’s fair to say that Roman’s ownership has been the most successful period in the history of the club so he must be doing something right.
Never… They should go sleep… Roman is committed to the club

His commitment has never been in doubt, but some people can’t seem to accept that the cash splurge has been reduced in order for the club to comply with the Financial Fair Play Regulations that govern expenditure these days.
Lastly, for now,
I think this is great news. He is the owner. and as the owner, the club operates the way he wants it to. He needs to exert that commitment, put more of his stamp on things, hire the right people, outline his desires and expectations for it, and hold his people accountable.

Hopefully, the political furore Roman has, unwittingly, become involved in, will sort itself out and he will be able to resume business, as normal, in the UK.
But, as we explained earlier, we’re trying to give a balanced view and one of the rare negative posts we found is shown below:
To you it might be nonsense but it makes alot of sense. The club is dwindling

Dwindling or in the middle of a period of change?
Chelsea won the FA Cup, only last May, the trophy sits proudly in the Stamford Bridge display cabinet, how many other teams won major silverware last season?
Our view, here at Vital Chelsea Towers is that long may Roman’s reign continue.
