    The Guardian has a big story today about us facing partial ground closures for the alleged Vidi chants. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/jan/15/chelsea-face-partial-stadium-closure-over-alleged-racist-chanting-from-fans-uefa-Stamford-bridge The Spuds story about the racial abuse of a Spuds player by a Spud fan on Sunday was given a single sentence and half buried in a story about Kane's ankle. This despite it being the third incident of racial abuse by Spuds fans in recent weeks. https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/jan/14/harry-kane-tottenham-ankle-injury-month-out You would think the Guardian has an issue with Chelsea or something.

    The Guardian were behind the Paris story. If you watch the video in full the French guy is filmed walking along the length of the platform past half-empty carriages before attempting to board one that was rammed with Chelsea fans. Why was he being filmed at the start of his walk to a metro train? Why didn't he try to board a nearer carriage? I am not for a minute attempting to defend our fans who barred him from entry or sang songs glorifying racism, but it was fairly obvious that the whole situation was engineered. Within minutes, the Guardian received the footage from a 'former employee' and created a massive story out of it.

    Rosenior and Murphy on Sky said he should go as well.

    Will there be a media meltdown over this? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/dec/18/tottenham-fan-fined-for-hurling-banana-skin-at-black-arsenal-player

    I'm pleased to see that MotD2 have addressed the worrying lack of ex-Liverpool players working as pundits in the media by giving a job to former Anfield legend (40 appearances in 5 years) Stephen Warnock. It's high time that club had fair representation in the media. I looked him up on Wikipedia and was surprised to see that his page was written by someone whose fourth language is English:

    I look forward to MotD forensically examining it.
  7. Tottenham Hotspur 3 Chelsea 1

    Fellaini? Vertonghen is an absolute scumbag, no question. I really cannot stand him.
  8. Chelsea 2 Manchester United 2

    Does this angle make things any clearer for you?
  9. Chelsea 2 Manchester United 2

    What do you see happening here?
  10. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 1

    On the generous side overall, notably for Willian, Moses and Azpi. Moses was not bad, but a 6 rather than a 7. One of Azpi's poorest games for us. Willian was a definite 5. Good team performance for most of the 1st half. Looked very tired second half and really dropped off.
  11. Chelsea Finances Thread

    Bates was pretty dismissive of the idea on that documentary the other week. We had big debts but we were servicing them. That doesn't mean I'm disputing that players might have been sold to reduce the debt, but I don't believe we were on the brink of bankruptcy or administration. As Lamps said in that piece: There is always talk, speculation, gossip and rumour. It doesn't make it fact. It's not as if RA bought the club for a quid, as Bates did, when the club really was in deep doo-doo.
  12. Chelsea 1 Liverpool 0

    How much have we spent on fullbacks since Ashley Cole left? Off the top of my head: Luis 16m Alonso 23m Baba 18m Emerson 23m Zappacosta 20m (Figures are only my rough recollection). I bet I've overlooked someone...
  13. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    Scandalous how the FA panel can overlook its own rule book about 'attempting to strike an opponent' just so they can ensure Salah escapes a ban. That decision could conceivably cost us as a club millions, because his goals or assists could earn Liverpool the points that keep them above us and deny us CL football. This comes just a couple of weeks after one their refs lied to claim he did not see an incident that he was looking straight at, purely so the FA could give Alonso a 3-match ban. And remember how they ignored their own rules about the UK courts having primacy in order to charge JT after the court had acquitted him. You could say there's a pattern here.....
