Chelsea fans devastated as star strikers leave Stamford Bridge

Farewell, brave princes.

Tom Victor

Modern football is a fickle business.

Top clubs can bring in top-level talents, only to struggle to hold on to them in an unforgiving and competitive climate.

Such was the case in West London, where fans were delighted to see world-class talents Falcao and Alexandre Pato arrive at Chelsea last season.

Both impressed during their short spells with the Premier League club

So when it looked like the pair might not be staying at Stamford Bridge after their loan spells, fans were distraught.

Sure enough, Chelsea announced the departure of both Pato and Falcao, as well as backup goalkeeper Marco Amelia.

That’s right, it got even worse. Not Amelia too?! One bit of bad news was bad enough, but this could be too much to take for some fans.

Fans have been consoling themselves, wondering how the club will cope without their lethal strikers.

It’s tough to see how Chelsea will cope with the double loss as they prepare for the 2016/17 season. Can big-money arrival Michy Batshuayi even come close to bridging the gap? We wish them luck.
