‘We have to spend smart’ – Chelsea fans aren’t surprised despite concerning summer news

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are ready for the season to end, with most already looking ahead to next season.

The 2017/18 campaign has been tough for most Chelsea fans since the beginning of the season, with their dominant form of last season nowhere to be seen this time around. Much of that stems from a poor summer after Antonio Conte was not appropriately backed by the club in relation to the teams around him.

Unfortunately, those challenges are likely to continue this summer even if Conte leaves, with the Evening Standard reporting that Chelsea’s transfer policy is likely to be as stringent as ever – owing to their impending new stadium.

It’s very concerning for the Blues, especially given that they’re already some way off the likes of Man City and Man Utd.

Responses to the news from the Chelsea fans over on Reddit have been interesting to say the least. Supporters have taken to the platform to discuss the report.

Most aren’t surprised at all, but reactions to the news have been varied nonetheless. Some are open to the idea, with the prospect of more youth involvement clearly generating excitement, whilst others are concerned that managers may no longer be interested in the job due to the constraints.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
