Chelsea Transfer Target

To be honest it's a bit of a silly rule. No one will be moaning about the integrity of the competition when AFC Wimbledon move in mid-season to their ground next year, nor were they when AFC Bournemouth played at Dorchester all those years ago.
AFC Wimbledon are not in the Premier League and AFC Bournemouth were not when they played in Dorchester.
I agree that moving mid season does not really affect the integrity of a league, but that is what the PL rules state and Scudamore was clear it would not be allowed.
More of an issue, in my view, is that AFC Bournemouth are now starting their fourth season in the PL at a ground with a capacity of less than 11500 but that is seemingly not against the rules.
