Are Chelsea using the return of fans to stadiums as a money making opportunity, or are they just giving fans the stellar service they deserve?

Fans’ return to football was supposed to be about getting the die-hard, home and away supporters back through the doors. The ones that have been desperately waiting for their football fix – not champagne-bathing, cash-rich diners.

That’s not what this is all about.

Fans will no doubt have been delighted at the prospect of returning to support the team – I know I certainly was – but less so about the idea of playing £470 for dinner and drinks at the Bridge.

Needless to say, these fans aren’t happy about it…
