    What’s interesting about that interview is Frank confirms that there have been no conversations with managers and players yet. So all this talk from the media about clubs being committed to finishing the season yet they have not had any conversations with the players? His comment about there being at least 70 to 80 staff at Cobham when training also reiterates the fact it’s not just players that would need testing and would be out at risk. Frank sums it up best with the ‘football shouldn’t come before NHS’ line though, his common sense seems way out of sync with many others thoughts from the football world.

    This is the best summary I’ve seen so far to discredit the idea of forcing an end to the season, that line in bold sums it up very nicely.

    Lol fair enough, each to their own. I work with a couple of particularly unbearable dipper fans, just the thought of them winning anything makes me shudder!!

    Really? Why? Awful club, awful fan base (especially in the south of England) and awful media bias towards them. Then add the VAR bias to that. Nothing to like or feel any empathy towards for me.

    They actually said that footballers habit of spitting was a risk, so they would ban that. How can you ban or stop spitting? Some players will do it subconsciously, it would be impossible to stop. Also the idea of playing all the games in 10 or so nuetral stadiums is awful. That decision alone destroys all integrity of the season.

    I’ve just watched the BBC 6 O’clock news and they had an item about the potential restart of the premier league. Eva Carneiro was featured and warned against it saying the close proximity players will play, train and live together means just one case would put many at risk. They had a clip of her with William so it will be Chelsea’s fault if the season doesn’t restart lol. They then asked what the fans opinion was, then proceeded to show a Man U and scouse fan who both of course wanted the season to start even if it meant no fans, limited stadia used and various other restrictions etc. You gotta laugh, why would the opinions of any other clubs fans be relevant 😂😂😂

    I’ve just watched the BBC 6 o’clock news and they said all the premier league clubs have ‘committed’ to finishing the season. Not sure whether to take anything from the language, the word committed sounds like some were pushed into it. However, they can commit all they like nothing is gonna happen for a long while. It will still come down to when it’s safe to play and depending on how far away that is, is it realistic to consider it the same season. And yes absolutely agree, if it wasn’t a certain club in first place there wouldn’t be such a huge push to complete it.

    I just saw this on the news. Not sure how likely that is, I think one thing is for certain those games won’t be played in front of crowds if they do happen.

    Large events, such as sports and concerts, will remain banned until August 31 In Germany the ban on large events remains in place, so no football there in the near future. I would have thought all the European leagues would need to be in sync with this as surely they all need to agree when and how European cup competitions proceed?

    Ain’t that the truth!! The club that can do no wrong.
  11. Coronavirus COVID-19

    This is great stuff and I’ve noticed the club has really done a lot of great stuff in recent times. Does this get reported in the wider media? I never look at sly sports or bbc sport but wondered if they ever mention all the good work Chelsea do?

  13. Coronavirus COVID-19

    To be honest I’ve read very little on this particular subject. I've seen the headlines that Italy feel abandoned by the EU. I suppose it has allowed China the perfect opportunity for some much needed positive PR. How the Italians react will be interesting though, I'm presuming from what you’re saying it has been positive. I’d be surprised if it won everyone over though, but gradual steps I suppose.
  14. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Out of curiosity what do you think the answer to that question is right now?
  15. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I got a couple of mates that are Fulham and Arsenal season ticket holders and they see it exactly how we see it. I also know a couple of utd fans who see it the same way, although I’m never sure if it’s just the rivalry between the clubs. For me utd also get the same positively spun media. In fact I think many fans of other clubs see it and many can’t stand the club and fan base because of it.
  16. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Only if you are an animal lover!! What a ridiculous statement. So you are quite happy for pangolins, rhinos, elephants and tigers to become extinct due to demand in China? You don’t think there is any need for China to make an effort to stop the demand? Your other statement is also bizarre, why would I create an agenda to hate China? I've no such desire. My only concern here is that I hate the thought that these species and many others could soon be extinct. Is that so difficult for you to understand?
  17. Coronavirus COVID-19

    The point I was trying to make was to distinguish the difference between killing an animal and deliberately torturing it. You raise an interesting case with the factory farmed poultry and the conditions they are kept. I’m not sure it could be described as torture but it’s certainly a very unpleasant brief life that they have with what you can only imagine involves a high level of suffering. I would object to that in the same way as I would the dog skinning. So it’s not as simple as China bad, UK good. I’ve also read some horrific stories about ‘super farms’ in the US. I would like to think free range gives people the option to choose a more conscientious way of farming, however I am dubious of some of the free range claims on packaging and what that exactly means. The reality is large amounts of food need to be constantly produced so these practices will continue whether we like it or not. More people do seem to be trying alternatives to a meat heavy diet so maybe things will change. China do tend to make it easy for them to be a target though, fuelling the demand of the ivory trade and the demand of endangered animal parts in Chinese medicine both come to mind,
  18. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Not from me it wasn’t. I didn’t say the country was evil. I said I don’t agree with how the dog markets operate. If you want to call the individuals who torture the animals evil, then yes we could agree on that point. Can you imagine if Dr Dolittle went on holiday in Yulin and stopped to chat with the dogs whilst they were being skinned alive. Oh the stories he could tell.
  19. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Funny you say that as I bumped into a propagandist whilst queuing at the butchers a couple of weeks back. Do you think he played a Jedi mind trick on me? By the way try eBay for your cheap second hand books, you’ll get the quality of thriller you’re seeking easily.
  20. Coronavirus COVID-19

    I think you’ve missed the point a little. Its not an argument about the most moral way to kill an animal. Its the fact they will skin a dog alive as they believe the stress it causes the animal releases chemicals that makes the meat taste better. Or how about drowning a big net full of dogs so their lungs fill with water and weigh a little more, so they get a few extra quid. That’s slightly different to the option of buying free range or not. If I’m daft for thinking that then so be it.
  21. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    😂😂😂 That’s brilliant I wish I’d listened to that
  22. Coronavirus COVID-19

    Look up the Yulin dog market. Skinning dogs alive because they believe it makes the meat taste sweeter. Also the way in which they are trafficked and stored is shocking. It’s as if they actually get a kick out of being as horrific and cruel as they can be, making them suffer just because they can. I understand that cultures have different beliefs and ways of doing things, but this kind of behaviour, no. There’s no excuse for it, it needs to be stopped now.
  23. Coronavirus COVID-19

    All things humans inflict on each other. The human race is wicked as we know. Animals are totally innocent when put in the situation they find themselves within those markets. And the totally unnecessary cruelty. I agree we will all differ in opinion and that’s absolutely fine, we’re all entitled to. Personally I find unnecessary animal cruelty the most sickening thing on this planet, but that’s me.

    It seems the premier league is going to start alienating the public. Just seen the news and spurs, newcastle and norwich have all applied for help from the government to cover the wages of non playing staff. On top of that other clubs have furloughed non playing staff whilst continuing to pay players full wages. BBC headline is that premier league clubs are in a moral vacuum, and who would argue? This just stinks of greed and in the current climate is very difficult to stomach. I believe the clubs are currently meeting with the FA to discuss all options for the league, however with news like this will the appetite be there for many? Can you imagine in the near future the idea of playing a rescheduled premier league game whilst listening to all the hype and talk of players salaries etc, then also hearing 500 plus people have died that day due to Coronavirus? The two don’t sit well together do they? Priorities?

    😂😂 I agree!! I was going to say replace Ronaldo as well just to make it an all Chelsea team.
