Chelse FC Transfer Ban Update II. . .

The saga over Chelsea FC's questionable recruiting tactics continues. . .

In summary, FIFA accused Chelsea FC of improperly inducing Gael Katuka of Racing Club de Lens FC to break his contract in 2007 to sign at the Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea has 21 days to file an appeal, but the earlier the file an appeal, the more likely it is that they'll receive a favorable appeal hearing date. (Check BBC (Here) for more info)

If Chelsea FC is unsuccessful in their appeal, they will not be able to sign any new players during transfer windows through 2011. If this occurs, it's possible that Chelsea FC will not be the superpower they've been in many years to come.

Yesterday, former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben (Netherlands/FC Bayern Munchen) told the Daily Mirror that he expects the transfer ban to spark an exodus for Chelsea footballers. (ESPN Here)
