  1. All mobile operators will be sending this message out today at some point. You’re absolutely right about being extremely careful of logging into anything from a link in a text message. The panic in people is something scammers are preying on.
  2. I agree on the fighting/posturing point. The problem is that whilst it’s perfectly plausible that some people just enjoy the posturing, there are also some people who were getting involved with the hope it escalated further.
  3. It was largely posturing but it was posturing on the basis of seeing a minor flashpoint and wanting to get involved - hoping it would kick off. It’s ridiculous, if you come to football to fight other people because they support another team then I think you’re a total disgrace and should take a serious look in the mirror. Will they be banned? No Is there anything in the current laws/rules that would see them banned? Probably not. Should there be? In my eyes, yes.
  4. All I saw were some West Brom fans who’d been celebrating down the steps getting pulled out and then our usual band of useless idiots rush to the first sign of trouble to try and start something. Hopefully CCTV picked them up and then can be banned, otherwise we’ll never be able to have decent numbers of away fans.
  5. Totally agree - it hardly ever works anymore with wingers. Today it felt like there was no midfield there at times.
  6. Absolutely spot on. It’s was a ludicrous decision to amend the handball rule with VAR coming in. VAR would have made it a lot easier to judge accidental vs deliberate so no need to change the rule to be so black and white.
  7. So you're telling me in the 60 odd games that Rudiger has played for Chelsea he's never had any abuse from opposition fans? That's the only the way the above makes any sense.
  8. It’s been quite well covered today but no there won’t be the debate there was after the alleged incident. Don’t forget a lot of the fuss was on the basis of it being ‘another’ incident rather than the incident in isolation. In terms of the reporting - alleged means it may not have happened - I know people don’t read things like that but that’s how things roll in the country (will stop there before I get political).
  9. Alleged means someone has alleged that it has happened. A journalist has to make a judgement call on the validity of that claim to an extent but it no way means the event happened. They would have protection as long as they could justify the allegation itself had some evidence behind it.
  10. A fan of the club was accused but not directly. So what action do you propose is taken against Rudiger or Chelsea for this? If the Man City fan from the derby proved he wasn’t being racist (which he hasn’t for the avoidance of doubt) - he would have had every right to ask for action given the impact on his life. This has had no impact like this and therefore I don’t understand who you are asking for action to be taken against or for what action.
  11. I don’t know. He should probably re-clarify his comments if it’s brought up - given this triggered his rant but he had said something similar a few weeks before so not sure this will have changed much for him.
  12. It’s not really an opinion when you state a fact about how things are reported which is shown not to be how they were reported. They would have to legally put alleged but if they wanted to stir things up they could put it in the article and not the headline and get away with it.
