Is Chelsea’s Roman empire crumbling?

The Roman Empire at Chelsea has been defined by its emperors decisions since it began in 2003. Seven years on nothing has changed.

The ruthless and wanton ‘hire em fire em' tactics employed by Roman Abramovich have not been in the best interests of the club – in fact you could argue that some of his decisions have held them back or severely stunted it's progress on the path towards becoming a superpower in football.

After the stunning loss to Sunderland the current form is to portray Chelsea as a club that has come unglued.
