The Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern have a lot to think about this summer as manager Antonio Conte looks to build a side capable of taking on a Premier League title defence as well as a Champions League campaign.
While there will be a lot of in comings at Stamford Bridge this season, our resident Blues fans are still recovering from the departure of former captain John Terry.
After 22 years at the west London club the captain, leader, legend has moved on and it was announced on Monday that he had signed a one-year deal with Championship side Aston Villa, as he looks for a new challenge away from the Bridge.
Everyone here in the bar, regardless of who they supported, were surprised by the deal, feeling that the former England international still had something to offer in the Premier League.
On Twitter, plenty of Chelsea fans were keen to wish their hero luck, while some still think it was too soon for him to leave…
bring him back

Not happy John Terry’s left. Him and Drogba were the best.
