    Which is why nothing should happen , why should Chelsea face relegation and expulsion from the CL when nothing will be done to the same degree to Madrid , Barca and Juve who were the driving force behind this .

    Throw the ten out of Europe and try to sell that product to BT sport's , they'll immediately want their money back .

    It has crippling financial implications for the Prem and Cl

    Do any heads roll from the boardroom for this ?

    Since Roman apparently knew all about it (and everything I've been reading shows that he did), why would 'heads roll'?

    Ed Woodward gone from Utd.

    He was going anyway, as he'd made clear some time ago.

    Errr? The same org that made us play a Europa league final in Baku, A country where one of the teams players couldn't play as it would be unsafe to enter?

    And? Read what I said, and stick to that. If you don't agree, then that's fine.

    It'll be back in a year or two. 

    Only you could even hope for that to happen.

    Probably proposed by UEFA and most people will welcome it.

    If Uefa do come up with something, it won't be this classless and soulless money grab we just witnessed.

    The rationale for an ESL (with a new name) is as strong as ever.

    The same one which just about everyone just rejected? Right.

    According to TalkSh*te 

    Anyone who entered the E$L had to pay a non returnable E8M bond 

    So we're down eight mil ! 

    Best not to believe everything you read about this nonsense, especially from good old TalkSh*te. I seriously doubt that RA has done any money. :).

    And it is certainly what the big splash of money was about last summer when we went from struggling also ran club to having a squad good enough to challenge for both PL and CL at the same time.

    Ignoring the obvious fact that if  this goes ahead, we won't be in either.

    So, ****'s hit the fan about the plans for the newest incarnation of an European Super League.

    Seriously, have the clubs lost their effing minds?

    Maybe the pandemic has made them realise they don't need supporters in the stadiums after all.

    There is now a dedicated thread on the main forum. Please post any thoughts there. Cheers.

    There were reports that they'd fallen out with Lampard too just recently .

    Mark, as you well know, there are always 'reports' . Which 'reports' an individual chooses to believe, is up to that person, but I think that rather than accepting/investing some validity in any random report, it might be worthwhile laying some names out there, so the rest of us can make at least an educated guess as to their validity. Where did these 'reports' appear, and who wrote them, might be good places to start.

    Chelsea clinched the Continental League Cup with a crushing 6-0 final win over Bristol City

    Well done Ladies

    This seasons first piece or silverware for Roman

    Great performance, and a well deserved victory.

    Oh I think he is that good. 

    Ok. And I don't. But they're nothing more than opinions, which is what sustains these forums.

    When one thinks of all the excuses that have been granted to Barkley and RLC over the years,

    Not by me. Wouldn't feed Barkley (as I may have said a million times before), and I can't see RLC making it, but would like to be wrong. But what does that have to do with Pulisic? Other than being a convenient straw man?

    24 minutes ago, Droy was my hero said:

    I'm quite happy to give Pulisic more time. 

    Well since that decision doesn't belong to either of us, I'm happy to go with what Tuchel wants/does. Me personally - if he wants to go, then say goodbye and make sure we get a decent fee.


  11. Just thought I'd mention that while people seem preoccupied by how Liverpool have become such a poor side, that's not our team's problem, nor Tuchel's. You can only play what's put in front of you. I'll take the 3 Points, and not be in the slightest bit embarrassed.

    A bit hard to compare Kante and Maka. I think Maka wins by a little too, but would have loved to see Kante with a star Mid of Lamps/Ballack/Essien. His midfield partners at the club have been sub-par at best.

    Sorry, but I think that this last comment is very harsh. No, they're not Lamps/Ballack/Essien, but then very few midfields were/are. Maka and Kante are simply different players, playing in different eras. Both good, but in different ways.
