It is a great frustration for me that fans of the club around the world can watch every Chelsea game live on television whilst I am forced to live at the mercy of the Sky and ESPN schedulers.
I understand the origins of this but times have to change.
At the start of the Premier League there were only 2 games shown on English television something which at the time signalled a giant leap forwards.
Restrictions on the amount of games in the Premier League have relaxed over time, but remain in place with the purpose of protecting attendances in the lower leagues.
There are still heavy restrictions that mean that for fans in the UK wanting to watch their team have to resort to live football online with the exception of a few selected games this means watching illegal streams.
Since the founding of the Premier League English football has evolved at a quick pace and with the a global audience the league are faced with a dilemma.
These streams are available quite easily and the league has been unable to stamp them out, the attempt to blackout the UK whilst the rest of the world watches games live has failed.
The Premier League cannot continue with these restrictions and must embrace the fact fans want to watch live football and offer paid live streaming to subscribers. This would increase revenue and protect the lucrative contracts with Sky, keeping the average fan and the money men happy.
I yearn for a reliable and legal streaming service so that I can watch Chelsea play whoever the opposition and so that when I bet on Premier League football I can watch my punt go horribly wrong as per usual.
It is time that the FA and Premier League acknowledged that in the global era of football you cant show the game to over 200 countries but not screen it at home.
