However, as our landlord points out, Metro have some more news that they would probably be very interested in.
The publication claim that three of their biggest fan favourites will have to wait until the end of the season to find out if they have a future at the club, meaning that our punters are not best pleased.
Ashley Cole, John Terry and Frank Lampard are all on contracts that run out at the end of the season and they will have to wait to see if the club they have given the best years of their career to will extend their deals.
Over a pint, one of our punters points out that Chelsea operate a policy of only giving over 30’s a one-year deal, meaning that it is common practice to wait until the summer to begin negotiations.
Lampard seems the most likely to get a new deal, with Terry and Cole both considering their futures.
Our landlord notes that Terry has been Mr Chelsea and should he be offered a new deal, we think he will take it. Cole meanwhile could well have one eye on the MLS and a final big money deal there.
Will the trio be offered new deals? Let us know your thoughts below.
