These are certainly interesting times when it comes to Chelsea Football Club.
Circumstances have contrived to provide the media with the ability to generate unlimited column inches.
Columns of speculation that, inevitably, discuss the very future of the club now that the British Government has elected to delay the issue of a visa for our owner.
With the news already broken that the redevelopment of the ground has been put on hold, due to the financial implications not making it a viable investment, one news source has seen it as an indication that Abramovich could be prepared to sell up, although the news source in question, the Times, has indicated that Roman would be looking to get his £1.17 billion investment back if a sale were to be the direction he takes.
But what does the highly active social media network make of the situation?
Perhaps all is not lost, with several tweets indicating that Roman could, quite possibly, have found a way around the current visa issue:

Is it really that easy to ‘cheat’ the system?
Continuing, on the Israel theme, another tweet candidly points out:
Just days after immigrating to Israel, Roman Abramovich, the Russian billionaire businessman and owner of Chelsea FC, has withdrawn his application for an investor visa to the United Kingdom. [@Jerusalem_Post]#CFC #ChelseaFC #Abramovich pic.twitter.com/aJOEYnpRl7

Maybe Roman has, through his advisors, found a loophole the government can do nothing about:
But, for now, we’ll leave you with a controversial tweet from the so-called celebrity, Piers Morgan:
Chelski are ****ed. #abramovich

Now that’s rich coming from an Arsenal supporter is it not?
But, what are your thoughts on what many are perceiving could be a crossroads in Chelsea’s future?
