  1. What's the atmosphere like at reserve games? Is it a good day out also from an atmosphere point of view and is there any travel to away games? Thinking of writing my thesis on football grounds in England (especially the London area) and would like to catch some Paint Trophy/PL2 action as well.
  2. Wow! I love the columns. The whole thing actually looks quite classy, very Chelsea, indeed. A few seasons at Twickenham shouldn't be a problem. It could actually be quite fun. I have a hard time seeing us moving to Wembley temporarily.
  3. I had to take a look at Stan's twitter yesterday... There's something seriously wrong with that man. Unbelievable. That must've been 3 tweets of bulls*** every hour. What a martyr. I was amazed it wasn't Mourinho's fault though!
  4. It actually made me really sad to read this. I'm really sorry that you feel that way and that in the year 2015 and after all that's happened this year in Europe, you can't go to the match feeling perfectly comfortable. Unfortunately there's a massive amount of idiots everywhere, not just in the stands at football. It's silly to say it's the "perfect" time, but now it really is THE time for every single person going to football to take a big look in the mirror and have a few extra thinks before opening their mouth. Like said here before, when supporting the same football club, it should be nothing but a unifying factor for the supporters, no matter who they are in their everyday lives. It's disgusting that a small minority can ruin it big time for everyone.
  5. Okay, I'll have to keep that in mind. Cheers! And I have to correct my previous post, the match is on Wednesday, not Thursday. Would be nice if it was closer to London...
  6. In the end of the day, who really cares about a team like NYCFC? Feeling sorry for those who have bought season tickets of this monster side are the last ones I'd feel sorry for. A team fuelled by slavery driven Qatari money, even lacking the history that the Manchester mothership has? Naah, almost more disgusting than the NYRB. I don't really mind Frank scoring goals for City, either, as long as we keep them behind us in the table when May comes. That's all that matters really. I whish he had chosen a different MLS side to represent though.
  7. I'll be in England (London and Cambridge) next week to see friends, and I noticed we're playing Porto on Thursday at Aldershot. What's the easiest way of getting there? It's a bit of a trek it seems.
  8. What are people moaning about? The age has never been a massive issue for players like Didier. His technique and physical presence enables him to perform at a very high level at a more mature age too, since he doesn't merely live off pace, like many strikers. Great signing. I can't wait to see him play again!
  9. I don't think this was a matter of belief, but just pointed out as a possibility, if this turns out to be the case for Lukaku. If the man has a truly great World Cup, there's no reason for him to settle for a place on the bench. I'd love to see him for Chelsea, and I don't believe he has unrealistic expectations. But of course he needs some sort of confirmation from the boss that he'll be involved on a regular basis.
  10. Yeah, I just took a picture of the form with my camera and sent it as an attachment. No problem. They didn't need the actual piece of paper.
  11. Then we're on the same page! It probably won't make a difference, but http://www.rerunthevote.org/ is still worth taking a look at. There was a very good article in a Swedish newspaper about a player who played down there, I believe he was French, who ended up stripped of all his rights, his health and pretty much his dignity by the Qatari authorities. This was the team captain of a second tier club with a decent wage to start off with, but who was denied his right to what they owed him when he wasn't needed anymore, and ultimately not being able to leave the country. Please share if you find an article about him in English! e. http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/zahir-belounis-striker-to-sue-his-two-former-qatari-clubs-for-fraud-extortion-of-money-and-inhuman-working-conditions-8980677.html Zahir Belounis is his name
  12. Of course, that was my point, wasn't it? It's a joke - a joke that kills hundreds of people kept under conditions no better than actual slavery. It's ****ing disgusting, and should result in a complete re-arrangement of FIFA and the imprisonment of those people who made the decision to commit this crime against football and human rights.
  13. Well, personally, coming from a rather small footballing nation, I know the players and fans care very much about our NT over here. Same goes to say for other smaller countries in Europe, also the other home nations in the UK, not to mention how passionately the Africans, South Americans and even football fans in the States feel about their national sides. It might not be what it once was, but there's still huge potential in the tournament, and it hasn't lost its popularity in large parts of the world. I mean, the match between the US and England attracted a bigger TV audience in America than the NBA finals, which says quite a lot, coming from a country where football is perhaps only the fifth most popular team sport on telly. I would also argue that even though Sleeping Dave has lost interest, that doesn't apply to the majority of Englishmen and the players who have dreamed as children to play for the Three Lions.
  14. So now it's decided that the WC 2022 in Qatar will not only be played in a state built by slaves with no respect for human rights, but also in the winter time/late autumn. I truly hope all respectable nations and major leagues will come together with their clubs and boycott the tournament. There's no reason for the Premier League for instance to take a break in November and let players travel to a criminal nation for the enjoyment of rich oil c***s, making the players' schedule even more hectic than before. There ought to be a thorough criminal investigation regarding the whole process of giving Qatar the cup, preferably with many an arrests made in the process and the competition moved to a suitable country. I'm disgusted. FIFA aren't known for their great moves, but now they've managed to rape the sport from top to bottom, and seem to be getting away with it, while those who have power to intervene not giving a rat's ass. So disappointed.
  15. Haha, yeah, it's incredible. Liverpool truly are a disgusting lot, and the press petting them only makes it worse. On the other hand, I couldn't really care less about what the media thinks of Chelsea, as long as they don't overstep the mark of good taste, which the Somali terrorist story clearly did. I'm just waiting for the club to sue, right now.
