For those who don't follow MLB:
  • The Dodgers are one of the wealthiest and best-run teams in the league, making the October playoffs year after year in a league which is pretty stingy in giving out playoff berths, compared to the other American sports at least.
  • Like Liverpool, they went more than 30 years without a title (1988-2020). They lost the 2017 World Series in 7 games to the Houston Astros, only for it to be revealed 2 years later that the Astros were cheating by telegraphing to their batters what the pitch the pitchers were about to throw.

Few view the Astros' win with any legitimacy, however it's probable they weren't the only team doing it. So I guess you could say they won in 2017 as well?
  • Last decade they had a reputation for paying overs to injury-riddled players. While MLB technically doesn't have a salary cap, going over a certain threshold involves paying luxury tax and consistent transgression can result in loss of draft picks. In recent years, they've been a bit smarter with handing out huge contracts. Unencumbered by MLB's soft cap in the EPL, I wouldn't expect them to go full Man City with spending but they'll definitely shell out when needed.

I think the focus will be on increasing the capacity of the Bridge somehow so that we can increase revenue.

I dont see us being run the same way that Roman did and we'll need to operate smarter.

So we can't call them Chelski any more. How about the Chelsea Dodgers?

Can you be anymore plastic.

Actually hold that, I'm pretty sure you could.

You're not from somewhere in Africa are you?
You realise you support your club from another country too, yeah? Not sure why you feel the need to have a go at Chelsea supporting African fans, but you are Isaac Butterfield’s number one fan so no surprise you’re a racist.
