  1. Chelsea Kits 2016/17

    Great. Our players will look like they've been run over by a lorry before the match...
  2. Tammy Abraham

    This was a really nice touch. Also, a great goal:
  3. Politics & Stuff

    State terrorism is still more destructive than religious terrorism...by many folds!
  4. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Tbh, I just wanted to take a swipe at Balague. I've obviously no idea whether or not this is true.
  5. Tiemoué Bakayoko

    Wait, since when has Balague ever been right about anything? Surely, if this means anything, it's that we can probably rule out signing Bakayoko since Balague says we're interested...
  6. Politics & Stuff

    Big time. And probably worse, the non French speakers have a cultural inferiority complex..
  7. Politics & Stuff

    A few reasons, and a warning this may be well out of your region of interest as it's mostly dull and unimportant history: Firstly, and this is true for Christians in most of the 'Larger Syria' (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine. Jordan) not just Palestine, but Muslims have more kids. Actually now it's starting to even out in most places but in the past couple of hundreds of years, Muslims were known to have more kids than Christians in the region. The main reason for that is that one of the main methods the French and the Brits used to infiltrate the Ottoman empire was through missionaries and groups sent to 'protect' the Christian minorities in the region. In practice they played on stirring up religious and sectarian tensions between the citizens and encouraged the independence of the region. Basically anything to weaken the Ottoman rule. But one of the effects this had is bringing some of the European social and cultural influences (as well as wealth) to just the Christians of the region. That affected everything from education levels to birth rates and even language. To this day, if you walk down most higher-class Christian majority neighborhoods in Lebanon you'll rarely hear a word spoken that is not in French. Secondly, just like everyone else living under occupation and apartheid in the West Bank, a large percentage of the citizens of Bethlehem seek immigration because of the practically hopeless situation they live in. The difference is that Christian Palestinians are A LOT more likely to be granted immigration (particularly by Scandinavian countries like Denmark and Sweden). This has been true for decades and the (conspiracy) theory is that it is aimed at slowly getting rid of Palestinian Christians as much as possible so that the Palestinian struggle can be misrepresented as a Muslim-Jewish conflict. The theory comes from the tactic that Palestinian Christians are incredible rarely, if ever, allowed to be mentioned in Western/English discourse when talking about the Palestinian struggle. Even if you read this nonsense about them being 'cleansed' by Muslims (which I have a bit) there is never any mention that the Christians in question are Palestinian, nor is any of them actually ever interviewed or asked about what they think about it. Of course the reality is much more complex, but that is basically the gist of it from what I know.
  8. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    People just love to highlight Luiz's mistakes. In that very same incident, the "Cahill-esque" way Gary then handled Rashford by backing off into the pen area is also a big a mistake but it's not talked about at all.
  9. Politics & Stuff

    No. EDIT: I don't mean to be dry with my answer, but what a weird thing to be concerned with. Even if it were true, which it is not if you ask almost any of the Palestinian Christians living in Bethlehem, it would be at most a local issue of the two; Why in the world would it be an international concern. Think about it, there are Palestinian Christians living in Bethlehem who are living under Israeli apartheid law just like their Muslim countrymen in Bethlehem and everywhere else in the West Bank, but people's concern is that Muslims are starting to outnumber Christians in the city? That is some strong propaganda... This is what Christmas looks like for Christians in Bethlehem trying to reach Jerusalem, but sure it's the Muslim Palestinians oppressing them...
  10. 30. David Luiz

    The best CB in the league. By a mile! And to think so much of our fan base was against him coming back. If it weren't for Kante, he'd probably be the signing of the season.
  11. The Conte Thread

    Exactly. How a big a lead would we have now had we started the season with the same form? Probably be on course to break all points records.
  12. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    Great result at a very tough place and good to see Garry making amends for that pen, but the MOTM by far was David Luiz, for me. He absolutely dominated in defense and even his forward play was exceptional. But on a side note, I know Conte does not like to talk about referees after the match, but someone really needs to because we need more protection from refs. For the second game in a row the opposition are only interested in stopping us from playing by kicking the shit out of our players. I know that refs are encouraged to try to handle the game in a way to keep 11vs11 but when the fouling is so one sided and clearly intentional as it has been, trying to keep 11vs11 becomes actually biased against the team receiving all the physical abuse.
  13. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    I get that we've got very little depth, but RLC? REALLY?!
  14. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    Good positive sub by Antonio.
  15. Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

    Sorry but if that's not a red card for Bardsley, what is?!
