Blues owner Roman Abramovich would want his £1.17bn back if he decides to sell Chelsea. (Times)From the Daily Telegraph 25 minutes ago
Chelsea have announced that their plans to build a new stadium on the site of Stamford Bridge have been put on hold. Plans were unveiled in December 2015 to increase capacity of the ground from its current 41,600 to 60,00 with an ambitious new design.
But the club said on Thursday that £500m project was now on hold "due to to the current unfavourable investment climate" "Chelsea Football Club announces today that it has put its new stadium project on hold," their statement said. "No further pre-construction design and planning work will occur."
"The club does not have a time frame set for reconsideration of its decision."
Has Roman had enough?
This announcement comes days after Roman Abramovich became an Israeli citizen a month after the UK delayed renewing his visa for this country. The new stadium was meant to be completed in time for the 2021/22, with planning approval secured from Hammersmith and Fulham council in January.

Tottenham Hotspur to stay at Wembley for at least one match next season
Tottenham Hotspur are set to announce tomorrow that they will play at least one Premier League home game at Wembley next season due to delays in completing the construction of their new £850 million stadium.
The Times revealed last month that the club had secured the right to return to the national stadium for a handful of matches, having used Wembley as their home for all of last season, and that option has now been triggered, although the precise number of home games they are intending to move for remains unclear.
Tottenham are planning an announcement to coincide with tomorrow’s publication of next season’s Premier League fixtures, having been told by the League and the FA that they must inform them of their plans by the fixture release date.
The Premier League has given Tottenham the right to play their first three games away from home if required, as they have done to West Ham and Liverpool in recent seasons, but given that the club have given up on their new stadium being ready in time for the start of the next campaign they may opt to play at least one of these opening three fixtures at Wembley.
Tottenham have secured the right to play several matches at Wembley, but are not planning to disclose the precise number as the timeline of the stadium build remains fluid and they do not want to give any additional leeway to the construction team. The club are hoping to play their fifth match of the season at their new ground, when the Premier League resumes after the first international break on September 15, but are not in a position to guarantee that.
Tottenham’s ground and fixture-swapping plans have been endorsed by their Premier League rivals, with the league also willing to waive a rule that clubs must complete all of their home games at the same stadium, because of their willingness to support stadium improvements.
Tottenham will be given permission to play away in the third round of the Carabao Cup, and will be able to move a Champions League group game to Wembley if required.

yeah or Levy hid behind him.Think Poch made decision...CLub supported him
Why do you say that? Think the club handled it well! They are constrained by premier league on what they could sayyeah or Levy hid behind him.
Feeling a bit deflated today,i know its just one game (we pray!!) but its a PR disaster and surely the club knew before this morning.Starting to feel a lot like just a punter to enic if I am honest.
I am no anti enic or a levy out by any means,but several times recently they have been less than open and honest when dealing with supporters,and I mean paying members,season ticket holdersWhy do you say that? Think the club handled it well! They are constrained by premier league on what they could say
through official means I`d say no way they go on GS,club may even go and put them on loyalty points such will be demand.
I am not disagreeing but did they really know! Probably yes but in may when they made us pay were they really 100% knowing we would play at Wembley? I am not so sure! One thing is for sure.....they have shafted the fans and they have pissed me off! But we have best ground in europe, our so called wage structure is broken on the best striker in the world! So not saying i like levy but shit hes got it rightI am no anti enic or a levy out by any means,but several times recently they have been less than open and honest when dealing with supporters,and I mean paying members,season ticket holders
Selling memberships/season tickets in may then what a week later announcing demolishion of the north east corner and moving STHs,reducng capacity enforcing a lucky dip ballot subsequently.I thought the year at wembley was managed pretty well but the pricing in NWHL and morely the premium 1182 seats in the south stand.And now this announcement,Levy is on a roll.
It wasnt the demolishion of the paxton corner or the 1 game at wembley,its the fact they know beforehand,sell to us and then tell of the change after the money is in the bank.I can understand if needs are to do something,but the lack of openness and suck it or else attitude isnt good even if you`re merely a customer,let alone a paying stakeholder in the club for decades.
