Chelsea Transfer Target

Team(s): Not any more
No cause for wonderment on your part. DVS was one of British sport's biggest white elephants. Cost £29m to build (at late 1980s prices, for the massively low-profile World Student Games), and most of its 25,000 seats never saw a backside. Upkeep was £700,000 a year, and repairs costing £1.6m were required. The loss-making stadium was useless for any sport other than athletics, which no-one gives a toss about. The poor council tax payers of Sheffield are still paying for it! Whatever comes next HAS to be an improvement.
