    The only 2 teams to knock us out of the champions league.

    Even Leeds have a net spend over the last 5-6 years comparable with Real Madrid.
    Largely due to their premier league promoted season.

    The PL payments have created many issues for clubs.
    Teams relegated finances collapse.
    Promoted teams jump massively.
    Get more Burnley's, allerdichis imo with the payments scheme as it is.
    No big deal between surviving relegation or finishing 10th in the grand scheme of things. Incentive not to lose games more than winning games.
    The league has been very good for some teams and hindering the bigger clubs who've brought the eyeballs

    Those smaller clubs dont tend to have to pay the same wage Bill's as they dont have real/psg/Barca lurking for toffee players.

    Unless your city or Chelsea who've managed to spend fortunes on transfer fees, net spend too but keep their wages relatively low.... like PSG

    Let's stretch the timescale to 40 or 50 years.
    Or maybe 60?
    The last 5 years is most relevant!

    But that’s fine to stretch it out and overall we are on another level as a club.

    They are minnows by comparison.

    Again no contest. But Chelsea are a small club that has taken the lions share of it all in 15 years.

    That’s all I was saying to eggy - who asked if they were as much a threat as Spurs.

    Who in here wants to bet who wins more titles over the next 10 years - us or Chelsea?

    Come on - get yer bets in

    Not so much how many but how we do it is more important to me at least!

    We are way ahead as a club full stop.

    Current owners stay for 15 years and Roman stays at Chelsea for the same stretch..

    You know what - they will quite likely close the gap as much again.

    That’s the point.

    Put another way - while we have nice little good-guy billionaire owners - the kind who made their dough by being lovely chaps ... owners who want to do things the “right way” - real interpretation = maximum profit from as little outlay as possible ... we will never be a dominant force again.

    Simples..

    Lovren apparently offering Man City advice after they lost the Champions League final, what was it I wonder? "Take a leaf out of Liverpool's book and make sure any of your defenders like me don't start the next one"?
