The Glazer scenario is a Chelsea fan's worst nightmare. Once an owner decides to use a club as a cash cow or leverage, it changes everything. I rather hope that our new owners have learnt from the Glazers' mistake as it hasn't exactly been a fairy tale for them at ManUtd. 

Roman Abramovich was a passionate and sentimental owner. There will never be one like him, and we will miss him badly. I personally will. But we are up against many RA imitators. And like Chinese manufacturers cloning Western technology, they are quite good at it. We must fight today's battle, not yesterday's. Our signing records of the past 5 years show that things must change. 

Super rich owners will be less important once the new FFP comes in. Smart owners will be the way forward. All about maximizing the marketing opportunities, continuing to uncover gems from the academy and buying well. 

Newcastle's owners will need to do a lot in the transfer market before new FFP comes in because they'll be limited in what they can do afterwards.

Those who deride and criticise our Roman Abramovich era often miss the point; that our success wasn't just about money. After all, PSG have thrown more money at it and got nowhere near us in terms of European success. We had football technocrats who were not afraid to make difficult decisions at difficult times, not afraid to sack any manager, no matter their reputation. We also scouted well, that is, until the last 5 years.

To cut this short; if UEFA's FFP succeeds  then the competition switches to who has the best eyes for spotting talents and developing them. And I wouldn't mind that at all. Some may argue that if we were financially tight, then Broja would be playing here instead of Lukaku, and we wouldn't be any worse.
