  1. Politics & Stuff

    Do you like Politcs? Yes? No? Could care less? Well in this grande topic we discuss politics. Here is a test for those curious. http://www.politicalcompass.org/test Don't take the test too seriously, and post your results if you want to. My results lean heavily towards Liberty and Communism/Socialism. The stupid image extension isn't allowed on Talk Chelsea. Keep things civil people.
  2. Kylian Mbappe

    Not really. Dozens of players have played for the big three, Juve, Inter, and Milan. Far more than any other league. Pirlo and Baggio for example.
  3. Politics & Stuff

    No way at all. I'd still be speaking English, in what universe was Germany liable to invade Australia and the USA?
  4. Politics & Stuff

    I think you mean Russia.
  5. Politics & Stuff

    Can't expect immigrant to assimilate when 3rd and 4th germination Europeans haven't. Too little too late.
  6. He is in his mid 30s and the Mexican league really isn't that bad. Europeans really do look down on Latin American football.
  7. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    I think Sassuoulo (spelling?) is a under most people's radar.
  8. Antoine Griezmann

    AN ACTUAL PROPER WINGER. He has spent his entire career in Spain because for some reason those who work at the Clairefotaines in France hate white people or something (ask SeB). I don't know much about him but by the looks of things he actually stays out wide and hugs the touchline. It's like twenty years ago when wingers actually played on the wings. His crossing, pace and dribbling look classy. He is banned from playing for France because he went to a night club the night before training... Thoughts?
  9. Dominic Solanke

    That was also about a decade and a half ago, don't forget.
  10. Ivan Perisic

    If anything I'd say the transfers are handled exactly like this. The board create a formal budget for the following year and Conte and his staff submit a transfer proposal for a first-team player to the board and upon reviewing the proposal decide to or not to make a formal transfer offer depending on the cost and wages. I.e. the board have minimal to no say what players are transferred but complete control on the transfer value and contracts. They will pull out regardless of the player if the fee goes beyond what the board are willing to budget for that season.
  11. Ivan Perisic

    He is just the head scout. Nothing more, the entire basis of the argument that Emanalo signs all the players is that he was photographed with a few new signings once.

    That message is the last thing worth worrying about. Besides, it isn't the bloody UK's fault, it's one RAF air crew ffs.
  13. Politics & Stuff

    It's also one of the most disgusting abuses of human rights in the world.
  14. Politics & Stuff

    Eradicating terrorism is like eradicating any crime. It's not feasible without some sort of science-fiction level 'thought crime' technology.

    Perhaps more investigations and harsher regulations on Mosques is necessary? He may be a hated fellow for a lot of reasons especially for his EDL days (let's not debate about those) but Tommy Robinson does raise some interesting points about the mosques in Luton town. I remember him writing about a child abuse ring in some of the mosques being kept hidden as 'Luton's dirty little secret'. I don't know if it was true but given other religions (Hasidic Jews in Israel and New York, and Catholic priests) fondness for young children, I simply wouldn't even be surprised. Though it could be 'considered' an invasion of privacy and an abuse of religious freedom, wouldn't it be beneficial to at least make sure that certain mosques and communities aren't aiding people's treks into the middle-east and Africa to be trained into terrorist splinter cells? Wouldn't that be killing the trouble at the source? Most of the issues seem to be homegrown.
  16. Politics & Stuff

    Humans are naturally tribalistic and to expect anyone to feel the same emotions as an Englishmen, or a Lancasterian, or Manc, and finally those directly affected by the tragedy is naive. Just like a person weeps more for their family as opposed to a stranger, people feel tragedies of their countrymen more than anyone else. I doubt the English on here would feel the same emotions for an incident in Belarus and vice versa. Just read the last few posts, only the English are truly distraught all the others while us foreigners empathise we cannot and shouldn't be expected to feel the same weight.
  17. Chelsea 5-1 Sunderland

    It's still a match and it's could be construed as disrespectful towards the Sunderland travelling fans and players.
  18. Politics & Stuff

    So someone tried to assassinate Robert Spencer by spiking his drinks. Pathetic, if you're going to murder a man at least look at him in the eyes. Cowards, willing to sacrifice another's life for what they believe in but not their own.
  19. 3. Marcos Alonso

    An alumni of Real Madrid's outstanding youth academy and Chelsea's newest mam; Marcos Alonso. He only made one appearance for Real before buggering off to Bolton Wanderers. He stepped up and made thirty-five league appearances over three seasons before leaving for Fiorentina. No stranger to England, he was loaned out to Sunderland and made a further sixteen appearance in the Premier League. Welcome to the new fellow; hopefully he gives a better show than the last Fiorentina transfer.
  20. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    Left-Centre Forward.
  21. 23. Michy Batshuayi

    A lot of semantic bullshit in this thread You bastards would argue about the definition of 'striker'.
  22. The Pub - Discuss Anything

    It was battered and stuffed with cheese. Served with beans and rice. It was pretty good when I mixed it all together with some rojo tamale on a corn tortilla.

    @iseah100 I ate my first chile relleno at a janky taqueria today. It was great.

    @Rmpr does Gabriel Jesus have the most punchable face in the world?
