  1. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Greetings all from North Holland. We've been in a relaxed lockdown situation for weeks, we can go for a walk, jog, cycle or even visit friends if a appropriate distance is kept. However once the lockdown was originally announced people made their own rules a bit and rather than simply stay home decended on the DIY shops, supermarkets and normal shops some of which are open (about 50% of them). Everyones been doing decorating or sorting out their junk that would normally be sold on Kingsday, so the local dump has been packed every saturday. The other weekend they threatened to close beaches as too many people had the same idea and went walking there. The kids do lessons from home but are usually finished by around 2 oclock so most go out and play, some are restricted by their parents but others pretty much roam the streets. So although most infected areas are in the south ( where the start of this coincided with carnival celebrations) there is a slow spread here. Most people are working from home but some can still go to the office like myself by bike. What I've noticed as the weather improves, is that more people are out and about in the afternoons (like a ghost town when I cycle to work) and slowly people are getting complacent mostly as they dont know anyone first hand who has it. For example I had to pretend to sneeze twice to get the attention of a group of teenagers who were walking together (8 of them) across the cycle lane this afternoon. And it's getting tough to keep your distance when cycling. Tonight the prime minister is doing an update speech on TV as the original lockdown period was til 1st april. Am fully expecting an extension and perhaps even stronger measures (ie no office work only from home and keep kids inside etc) gatherings of more than 3 people is already banned til 1st June. Obviously you guys (UK) are a week or so behind but there's also been struggles with idiots who wont stay in. By the way no talk here of finishing the dutch leagues I think they realise there's little chance/point. I think unless something changes soon in the UK re figures all the talk re behind closed doors or June onwards will be bluff. Whats the thoughts re that over there??
  2. Media / Press

    I dont think you can compare it to the Clattenburgh incident as nowdays players are encouraged/obliged to report anything they think ''could'' be racist abuse as mentioned by Azpi post match. Of course it is not beyond opposing fans or the media to snidely suggest Rudi was somehow lieing to gain some kind of advantage on the day.

    Yep their media cheerleaders made a 0-5 into a moral real surprise
  4. Media / Press

    Note, the word alleged has to be used in combination with affair when discussing that episode in the media...classic case of sew the seed then under report the truth leaving the general public with an opinion...
  5. Media / Press

    And low and behold...just clicked on the Guardian website and Barney Ronay has written about it...I'll get my coat

    Fair play, I guess I based it on the Guardian and BBC who were less vocal
  7. Chelsea 2 Lille 1

    Not at all we may well need that experience, I think Lille have some good players who are very capable of running at us from deep so we need cool heads
  8. Media / Press

    What you dont get is lots of articles and TV comment regarding the incident like the Sterling incident. Has the guys name and address been published like with the incident at Stamford Bridge? We do get treated differently we know that as with the Eva Carneiro thing where suddenly everyone was an expert on the role of a physio and cared deeply about womens rights in the workplace...I don't see many lady physios working in football at the moment by the way...
  9. VAR and Chelsea

    That second Everton goal on Saturday had what looked suspisciously like a foul on Christienssen in the build up. For a moment I thought we might get a VAR decision...but no another one goes against us...couldnt really make too much of it after the third went in but it was important. The ref let a lot of over physical stuff go from Everton which assisted their win but we didn't really stand up for ourselves enough
  10. VAR and Chelsea

    So in the space of a few days we had two VAR decisions go our way, In my opinion Sterling looked onside and it felt a bit against the spirit of football to dissallow it a little like Azpis against Liverpool. Re last night, on the stream I was watching a qualified ref (missed the name)called it offside before it was correctly given as a goal...just shows what you are up against.. the same ref didn't think their pen was a pen as the Valencia playerran across Jorginio on's a mess Also I dont doubt that in the premier league Napolis goal would have been disallowed for a foul on Van Dijk

    Yes there is often more to it than meets the eye. But they also play for the fans or should do
  12. Media / Press

    I think there were certain squad members who could have done more for Conte, I dont buy into the downing of tools but there were a few who didn't knock themselves out that second season

    I get all the points that people are making here and that Mourinho was and is divisive opinion wise. But am I alone here in being not that phased that he has gone there? I think perhaps because we have such an exciting thing going on at the Bridge I am not thinking about the neighbours comings and goings. He didn't do badly at United in my opinion and was eventually let down by players who will let everyone down, we had the same here with the same players who let him down letting Conte down. He will probably do quite well at Tottenham at least initially but much as I despise that lot I am far more interested in what Chelsea are doing. What we are doing will take time and we may have to endure some clubs (and fanbases) we dont like winning things before we do...but we have a squad and a manager who have our clubs best interests at heart...let the neighbours ponce about with their new sportcars...we are saving up for a ferrari
  14. Manchester City 2 Chelsea 1

    It was on the days where he wasnt really up for it (often against the better teams about 50/50 re him turning up) he would go missing completely or release the ball as soon as he got it from the left wing position
  15. Manchester City 2 Chelsea 1

    I remember exactly when he got sacked just before the Sunderland home game on 19th December and we had not had a penalty all season with several possibilities being ignored. We finally got one against sunderland and it was the softest you've ever seen...It actually was the incident that convinced me that refereeing in England is not whiter than white (had long suspected it). Was like they wanted to rub Mourinhos nose in it...
