CHELSEA Football Club had won exactly one top-flight English championship (1955) and three FA Cups (1970, 1997, 2000) when the club were bought by Russian businessman ROMAN ABRAMOVICH in June of 2003.

Since that time, the London club have captured the English Premier League title on three occasions (2005, 2006 and 2010) and added another three FA Cups (2007, 2009, 2010) in only seven seasons under ownership of the Russian oil baron.
