From Stamford Bridge to Guildford!!!

HHuuummm from 'Stamford Bridge to Guildford,' quite hasn't got the ring to it that from Stamford Bridge to Wemberleeeeeeee.... has, but Guildford could be the place that Chelsea Football Club may move to should all efforts to redevelop the exisiting site fail.

The current capacity at Stamford Bridge is 42,250 and Chelsea know that something has to be done to compete with the 76,000 Old Trafford stadium and the 60,000 Emirates Stadium. It is a shame to report that due to the positioning of the ground at the current site expansion DOES NOT look feasible due to resident concerns and importantly the lack of space surrounding the area.

I read somewhere that the site would need a minimum of 20 acres to build a decent sized capacity stadium, unfortunately for Chelsea, Stamford Bridge sits on an acreage of only 13.

So what do Chelsea do? Well they could move down the road to Earls Court, or further down the way to White City (which in its former glory was the host stadium for the Olympic games), or as reports suggest move thrity miles away into the Surrey countryside to Guildford.

With the Cobham training complex not too far down the road and the majority of players living in the Surrey stockbroker belt on millionaires row, perhaps Guildford sounds like the place to move to.

I realise that Stamford Bridge has outgrown itself and I realise that if Chelsea want to become 'the' BIGGEST Club team in the World then a move away from Stamford Bridge seems inevitable.
