New Battersea Power Station Owner Offers Chelsea Little Hope

Only a miracle can help the Blues now to help securing this iconic site…..

The Malaysian investor who outbid Chelsea to redevelop Battersea Power Station is unlikely to assist the Blues in developing the site for a new stadium.
 Liew Kee Sin told The Daily Telegraph.
“I don’t want to say anything right now, but from what I know, from what I read…a stadium is out of the question, but we need to speak to the respective councils about what is and isn’t possible. For now we’re committed to following the [agreed] plan which is residential, commercial, retail and social [housing], [and an] extension of the Northern Line. 
I don’t know Mr Chelsea, Mr Abramovich. We haven’t discussed the bid. We’re just a foreigner bidding for a bit of land in London. We’d like to get it first then talk about other things. It’s not ours yet and we don’t know what will happen over the next 28 days. Let’s do one thing at a time.”

Well there’s a litlle chance now that Chelsea will be able to secure the iconic site with the Malaysian giants looking favorites to take the project forward and say their project will benefit the city much more  than a football stadium and also help to revive the economic cycle in this time of recession. In order to maximise the club’s revenues ahead of the implementation of UEFA’s incoming Financial Fair Play regulations, the Blues had planned to construct a brand new stadium with an increased capacity of 60,000.
The Club on the other hand have been given a boost by the local City council. After seeing their bid for Battersea Power Station lose out to a Malaysian consortium, Chelsea are now discussing with their local council in a bid to expand Stamford Bridge, The Guardian reports.

Rebuilding and expanding the Bridge just like the CFC team is a much viable option…
The Blues could get help from Hammersmith and Fulham Council to upgrade Stamford Bridge after their latest attempt to find a site for a new stadium failed.The European Champions submitted a bid to move into Battersea Power Station last month but it emerged this week that a joint proposal from two Malaysian companies was selected as the preferred bid. The Blues are seeking a new home due to the problems of improving their 42,000-seater ground, but finding a site in the local area has been just as tough.
The new leader of Hammersmith and Fulham Council, Cllr Nicholas Botterill, has insisted he wants to see Chelsea remain at Stamford Bridge and has been in touch with the club in an attempt to open the discussions. He said: “It now looks highly unlikely that CFC will be moving away from their historic home.”
He added: “The council remains committed to working with the club to explore all possible avenues for keeping the Blues here at their original home.
“The door is open and the council is again ready to sit down and discuss how Stamford Bridge can be appropriately upgraded so that it is fit for one of Europe’s leading football clubs.”
Expansion plans for the Bridge ahead?
 Well leaving the Bridge and going to somewhere else will not be quite a pleasant experience for the Blue faithful. The memories attached to the Bridge are priceless and are embedded in every diehard CFC supporter..

Chelsea who have been at the Bridge since 1905 are very unlikely to leave their temple of football in the Bridge and where they have achieved so much consummation. The Bridge is and will always remain a part of Chelsea’s Golden History….

    Chelsea was created for the bridge so it can't leave it!!
    The pic of the expansion looks amazing!!

    Chelsea needs a bigger stadium to help raise revenue so as to meet uefa's fair play policy. If the council wants Chelsea to stay at Stamford, it should help it to expand Stamford to a capacity of the 60,000.
