No, that’s not how it works. You can’t just “forgive” corporate debt without declaring bankruptcy otherwise it’s how ALL owners would pump money into clubs to get around FFP. This is from some insane twitter theory.

That's exactly how it works.

I don't know the details, but let's assume there was a related (related to Roman) company (but not the parent of Chelsea FC) who held the debt owed by Chelsea FC; they would write off the loan (asset) and it would be a one-time hit (expense) to their P&L whilst for Chelsea who owe the money would write off the liability and record income to their P&L. This is how it would play out in practice in very simplistic terms.

How many owners would willingly pump millions (even billions) into a football club with no expectation of ever getting anything back? That's madness.

A monumental f*ck-up of a very promising window where we should've, by all means, reinforced our position at the top by adding more steel to the midfield & firepower upfront.

Regardless of how the seasob pans out, Edu's situation at this club should be untenable.

That's TWO windows now where we should've struck while the iron was hot & now we're left looking like simpletons...yet again!!

It's always a short period of smooth sailing with this club until we hit a seemingly neverending maelstrom of misery :lol:
Shocking mate isnt it. Edu is a bvm ffs

I think I will just murder my father if this happens, tbh (who is a fan of that scumbag club)

Don't really rate Felix, or had even really heard about this kid before he started twerking for us...but I have my principals, they can't keep doing this to us.

I HATE Chelsea so much, they are so lucky they won the dirty lottery in 2003 and that luck seems to never end...if they lost to Pool on the last day that season and finished 5th, they would have ended up becoming another Leeds with how awful they were run finically...THAT'S the real Chelsea football club.

They went from having less trophies than Sp**s, to buying two European Cups ffs...pricks.

My dad has had a good run, he is old enough to have even gone to this National Front meetings Chelsea used to have on the reg back in the day...thanks for the memories, but it's time to get stabbed in the neck 🤬

Hopefully this one turns out to be a blessing in disguise and mydrik fails in the graveyard for talents called chelsea. This deal at least shows we are willing to spend significant ammount of cash this window, but I just don't see an alternative in the market. Except Mitoma who brighton won't sell.

This is a totally idiotic rule. FFP is there to prevent owners from funding clubs directly. Now every owner can just loan the money instead and write off the debt, and its ok? Such a simple loophole can make FFP irrelevant? Total madness

I find it hard to believe that this would be considered in FFP calculations, it's too easy a workaround.

Soz but what really irks me is people smugly acting like this isn’t a massive L. Respond appropriately you tw*ts! We just lost out on our no 1 target with 2 weeks to go in a January window to help us win the league for the first time since 2004.

Nothing about this is good! There are not plenty more fish in the sea!

Arsenal were never gonna spend 100m on him regardless. We would’ve probably signed him if Chelsea didn’t come in with more money.

Lets not pretend that the kid is garbage now. Yes the 100m is a massive outlay, but its clear to see, even as armchair analysts, that this kid has the potential to be massive.

So yes, this is a loss.

But at the same time, we must be serious and use our time wisely. I just hope we can bring in a player who gives us the difference that Mudryk would have brought to the table. Think we need that to give us that boost for the second half of the season.
At 100m and a 7 year contract we can't compete with that. So in all honestly while we wanted him and needed him it wasn't to be.

We both agreed that maybe around the £60-70m mark was the top end. Chelsea seem to have been willing to up that by about £15m, more likely double the salary and a 7 year contract instead of 5.

I'm happy we didn't bend over for that deal. We do that once we have to do it every time with negotiating.

I mean, it sucks, yeah, but it's not the end of the world.

And the fact that he’s gone to Chelsea so easily clearly shows he wasn’t twerking for us specifically, just for a big club in a good league.

Wonder who's gonna be the Douglas Luiz equivalent for this window that we try to scramble at the last minute and still fail

7 year contact for a £100m fee for a player of an age Chelsea have a history of not nurturing and developing. A player who was desperate to come to Arsenal even flirted with the idea on social media several times.

If this doesn’t work out - Chelsea will be a laughing stock. Even posters on the shed are confused and really question in this whole deal

So you would rather match Chelseas bid, offer north of £85-90m, probably 200k a week and a 7 year contract.

Obviously we would like him and we need a forward. But as a club we have to know when to draw the line. And north of 70m, 5 years on say 150k a week was the line. Chelsea have beaten that offer and may he end up like all the other wingers there.

But Abramovic couldn’t write off the debt because it was an asset of his and his assets were frozen? Isn’t that the whole point of freezing assets - ie they can’t be disposed?

Arsenal Quotes

When I first came to Arsenal, I realised the back four were all university graduates in the art of defending. As for Tony Adams, I consider him to be a doctor of defence. He is simply outstanding.
