Thank You Roman in The Chelsea Forum Posted March 3 · Report reply I’ll just add from a football point of view I am absolutely gutted beyond belief. Thanks, Vlad. So to anyone who knows, how and why are the government going after Roman (apart from the obvious that is what is happening) I can’t justify anything because for any of us to know the ‘ins and outs’ of what’s actually going on is wrong. Even putting the trophies aside and the football, has it ever been truly mentioned how Roman changed English football for the better? Look back at how the league was (fundamentally) before he took over. Arsenal. United. United. United. United. Arsenal. United. United. United. Etc Roman comes in, completely changes the game. Brings a freshness to the league, a new competitiveness, even more people watching the league, Liverpool up’d it, City got taken over and made the league even better. If Roman wouldn’t of done what he had done who knows how the league would be. And what did it do? Help bring billions and billions of pounds in to English football and make it the best league on the planet. The only people complaining were bitter jealous fans. What else has he done? Changed Chelsea truly and completely, new training ground, everything state of the art with upgrades at SB (RIP new stadium, thanks, government, again.) he’s helped women’s football, community football, people in the community, the fight against racism, hate, anti-semitism, old players who needed help and brought back into the football club, people at the NHS during covid proving food and accommodation, and so much more I can’t think of right now. He wasn’t just an owner, he was a massive supporter, and attended SO many games until he was shafted by the government, he turned up week in week out, how many other owners did and do that with the huge clubs? He always did everything with the interests of the club always in my eyes, and I will be eternally grateful for it and him. If what was happening in Ukraine right now didn’t happen neither would this, it’s all tough to swallow. Can’t help but feel Roman is a scapegoat and now his money is being questioned when in reality it wasn’t always before. Man City get a pass with their owners, PSG get a pass, and I suppose Newcastle owners and the state get a pass and are all continual angels until their time comes, if it does. None of us know the true extent of Roman’s businesses and money. We simply don’t, so I’m not even gonna go there. As said, a massive scapegoat. Thanks again for everything, Mr Roman. And as a side, I don’t watch a lot of football coverage anymore, the political correctness and other farcical nature of things did it for me. Take a knee for Ukraine. Or is that not allowed?!
