  2. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    For the show, the excitement and for Sky et al to have something their moronic commentators can talk about. It’s all a show these days. It may not be the NFL or NBA yet but honestly not far off.
  3. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    This whole ticket circus confirms that this is indeed about punishing the club and it’s supporters. Why else would Chelsea fans not be able to buy tickets for home PL games whereas the away fans are? If the money isn’t going to Roman or the club, what difference would it have made if Chelsea fans could enter the games also? This is ALL about punishing us I’m afraid. This whole sanction business is immoral at best and downright criminal at worst. I’ve been saying for years that the Premier League is corrupt. This pretty much confirms it beyond any doubt. I’ve reached a stage where I simply don’t care much for English football anymore. The passion is dead. Well done to everyone involved. The future of the PL looks very bleak. The kids today don’t care much for football, they are into esports and other things. I seriously think that the Premier League may have suffocated itself to death within half a generation. Oh. And who our new owners will be is just about as interesting at what the weather is at the North Pole right about now. I couldn’t care less really.
  4. Tammy Abraham

    How is it confusing? I do not think he wanted to leave but was forced to do so because our manager wouldn't give him a chance. Any chance really and proceeded to sign three players at very high prices who are yet to convince anyone they are clear upgrades on Tammy imo. That he left is not proof he wanted to leave to play regularly. But when he did in fact move, it would be very confusing if he left for a team where he would not play. In such a case, he might as well have stayed here no?
  5. Tammy Abraham

    Well he’d be pretty damn stupid to leave for a club where he wouldn’t be first choice? Then why would he leave at all? Because Roma pays more? Er no. He was forced out. There is really no other way to put it I’m afraid. Just look at how he CL ducted himself over those last 6 months. Impeccably. The lad was dying to be part of the playing squad but for some weird reason he stood no chance whatsoever. In the meantime we’ve spent £230m on Havertz, Lukaku and Werner. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️ There’s dropping the ball and then there’s dropping the ball. We look like absolute dimwits unfortunately. And it was oh so predictable and so avoidable.
  6. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    Just popping in to see if this circus is concluded yet. No? So I gather that what’s on the table is islamofobs and Saudis? What could possibly go wrong 🤦🏻‍♂️
  7. Media / Press

    Oh dear. As I’ve been saying, the club should not forget these past few weeks. Some of the stuff written about us has been unacceptable.
  8. Official: Chelsea Sign Kai Havertz

    I’m not sure Gallagher will be part of the squad next season. It’s mad I know, but I’m not convinced he will. I think he should mind, but what I think doesn’t matter too much lol. Havertz had always looked the part as a striker for us. When we put him in midfield he has not really been able to get a hold of the game. He’s quite clearly our first choice striker on merit. Neither Lukaku nor Werner comes close.
  9. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    I should probably care about this process but I don’t. For every scandal and unjust agenda against us my love for the game diminishes a little bit. This latest fiasco is really pushing me to the brink.
  10. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    This is the west these days in a nutshell. Full of melts with no stones who just follow the general stream of imbeciles. Why would football authorities be any different? We will have to buckle down, swallow this pill and come back stronger than ever once the dust settles. But we must never let them forget how they’ve treated us. We have long seen how we are robbed by VAR time and time again. But this time it’s institutional bias in the open and not a few melts at the PGMOL.
  11. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    Quite right, Roman was one of the original Oligarchs that made his money under Yeltsin. Putin has basically not tied these guys closer, but rather imprisoned one and killed another two. Putin does not listen to Roman or any of the Oligarchs. Their time in the sun was in the 90's and ever since they have all more or less tried to move themselves and their assets to the west (and for good reason). That we are sanctioning them now is just ludicrous and completely baseless. Exactly this. Hard to argue with this. The double standards are quite sickening. It all feels a little bit too orchestrated. Like you have a bunch of absolute melts who have been waiting for this moment to pull the trigger as they know they never could have under normal circumstances because; 1. Roman has done no wrong (well, at least not after he amassed his wealth) 2. He has already been approved as a buyer 3. Under all circumstances he is a whole lot better than the owners of Abu Dhabi FC and Newcastle - both approved long after Roman was approved. There are no direct ties of Roman violating human rights, starting wars or being responsible for 100 000+ war victims. Funny world we live in.
  12. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    It seems large part of the media and football world are more busy trying to bury our club than to actually help the victims in Ukraine. Their situation is absolutely desperate at the moment. My stomach churns when I watch the news, absolutely horrible scenes playing out and not very far from our safe beds in our countries. When this is over Putin must certainly be put in front of a court in The Hague. He is a war criminal plain and simple.
  13. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    No, anyone trying to force their way in is effectively ostracised by the MSM. IO don't know how it is in the UK, but in the Nordics it is almost impossible to fight your way in and become a serious party for the parliament. Part of the tax payers money is funding the political parties and the size of the support is based on the number of votes in elections. So either you are funded by a major player or you are doomed. Most people with money can't be bothered, so they move their wealth abroad to avoid draconian taxes. Definitely agree. But they have made their moves so far in a way no one can take offence with. At least not so bad it was worthy of military intervention or large scale economic sanctions. I was alluding to their territorial quarrels with Taiwan, The Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore and Japan which I firmly expect them to start acting on now. I'd be genuinely surprised if they didn't go into at least Taiwan before summer. I see a very unholy axis of Russia, China, Iran and possibly North Korea on one side and the EU and Nato on the other. The potential is truly explosive and we can only hope this doesn't escalate further.
  14. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    Like I’ve said a few times, this has nothing to do with Romans alleged ties to Putin, or Romans influence on Russian politics or even Romans influence on the invasion in Ukraine. This is western politicians showcasing their inability to do anything remotely useful. Their actions right now might be the final nail in the coffin for growth in the western world. Why would businessmen and women from other parts of the world invest in our countries if the government can sanction you and freeze your assets without proving you doing anything wrong? We are creating an environment that is impossible to invest in, the damage they are causing may be irreversible. But intimately it’s our own fault, for continuously giving these clowns the power to do so through “free elections”. If China was ever going to make their moves on the world stage the time is now.
  15. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    I’m just going to leave this here with two additional questions; 1. Is there any proof that Roman has influence in the Kremlin? 2. If he did, why would he go to great lengths of running g from that influence, trying to achieve permanent citizenship in the Uk and later succeeding with that but in Israel? I really do not think the sanctions against Roman are legal. I don’t think there is any proof that supports it. https://www.ft.com/content/503fb110-f91e-4bed-b6dc-0d09582dd007?fbclid=IwAR1988cF3NddP0dIRq8whQW7v0KiSF-YP1CecD6CawJNP_TLps7IC7m86eo
  16. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    I said the liberal left. Pure socialism has only been present in a handful of countries and even them have been liberalised to the extreme compared to how those countries was represented by the “left” in the 70’s and 80’s. Seems we agree.
  17. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    The liberal left has been the dominant force in much of the western world for the past few decades. It has consumed everything and tries to top itself with crazier and crazier focus areas instead of focus on real issues such as not making yourself dependent on countries like China and Russia who have both been waiting for this moment for the past twenty years (or more!). We are now at our weakest we’ve been since the outbreak of the Second World War. What we do now will matter for decades to come and all we can muster is to sanction Oligarchs and their assets (that I can bet they’ve been working hard to get out of Russia and out of Putins reach). It’s bloody criminal behaviour and achieves nothing apart from signalling to the masses that they are firm. They are not. They are idiots.
  18. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    Putin can’t take money from Roman outside of his assets in Russia. It’s my understanding that the majority of Romans wealth is outside of Russia although I may be wrong. Either case, Europe can’t prevent Putin from taking Romans money that’s within Russia, all they can do is to steal his wealth that’s in Europe. To be perfectly honest, it’s a shameless behaviour. It was Yeltsin who elevated Putin. Chelsea fans should make a concerted effort to write a list of all companies and news outlets that we should boycott. What has been going on over the past few days is definitely something that warrants that. This. It has absolutely zero impact on the outcome of this war. Roman isn’t even in Russia very often and has tried to distance himself from Putin and Russia since he bought the club. This is nothing more than virtue-signalling by the toothless and is a common theme among the liberal left who have lost their moral compass completely. Their ideology is something taken out of a children story. When you refuse to see the world through a lens of realism, you end up like we have done. If the blame should be laid on someone, it’s the western politicians who have 1. been showing weakness which WILL also lead to China making moves and 2. making the region dependent of Russian energy. Sanctioning Roman is just a weak effort to divert attention from their own failings.
  19. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    What kind of breaking news is that? He sanctioned the sale several days ago. The only thing that the morons in parliament has achieved is making sure the money from the sale isn’t going to the victims in Ukraine. A real slow clap all around. The mind boggles in regards to how stupidity can outwit common sense.
  20. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    Well done. Any Chelsea fan keeping their business with them need a long hard look in the mirror. I’d say that’s a great reason to keep it up. The West has been busy trying to be so good they have actually become what they say they despise. I see no difference between Europe, The US, Russia and China. All wankers. Difference is some of those aren’t trying to hide it. How does anything make any sense. Meanwhile women and children are slaughtered in Ukraine. Text book Klopp. Without the PGMOL in his corner he’d be a lot less successful. Well. How can anyone argue with that? You can add all the yank owners to that as well. They’ve been destabilising the world for the past 100 years + with impunity.
  21. Roman Abramovich and Chelsea FC : Sanctions

    Difficult to make sense of this. But then again than in itself isn’t surprising considering we in the west has been run by a bunch of absolute twats for decades. This is a time to come together and show the rest of the world what we’re made of. They can try and knock us down but we’ll come back stronger than ever. Might take time, but at some stage we will. **** em all.
  22. Norwich City 1 Chelsea 3

    You know what? I’m totally indifferent if a bunch of players or sponsors want to leave. Couldn’t care less, me supporting Chelsea was never about success. It was the process of supporting Chelsea. If Jorginho and Rudiger and others wants to leave then let them. It’s their loss. If 3 wants to sponsor a different team, go ahead, couldn’t care less.
  23. Thank You Roman

    Actually, I’m not even sure they should stick to football.
  24. Thank You Roman

    Yes, agree with this completely. But then I'm also not going to hide the fact that he deserves a lot of praise and I'm not going to not sing his name because a few half-baked unicorns with a virtue-signalling ailment thinks that's the right thing to do. The hypocrisy is sickening. I sing what I want and I show my appreciation to whomever I want and they can bloody well stuff it where the sun don't shine if it doesn't suit their agenda. My respect for the establishment is pretty much completely gone. It was at an all-time low before this happened, now there is no way back. Europe need proper leaders, not the poxy bellends we vote into office.
  25. Thank You Roman

    But then there is no argument for why we should not sing his name. You're being trapped by the media narrative - exactly what those weasels want!
