  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50797989 https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/breaking-tottenham-police-end-investigation-21226485.amp https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/antonio-rudiger-in-right-frame-21163528.amp Three articles. All say ‘alleged’. What are you on about?
  9. What action? For a player mis-hearing? Possibly Chelsea or Rudiger could be expected to apologise to Spurs but I don’t think Spurs will care. I’d imagine they’d rather not put players off highlighting racism in the future.
  10. No - I just can’t believe someone took the time to write something so misguided and stupid and that other people think it’s worth sharing.
  11. But a singular person was not accused so that’s absolutely irrelevant.
  12. Is this meant to be comedy? It’s almost as idiotic as the opening post on this thread.
  13. I don’t think they’re a pair to play on their own in midfield. They’re both excellent at keeping the ball but not massively creative and it ends up a bit ‘to me, to you’.
  14. To make a clear minute for the video and raise awareness that it’s happening. No idea where we may end up, delaying the kick off for one minute is huge.
  15. I just don’t see any way on earth that the song has anything to do with his race.
  16. Quick, someone write to the MoJ and let them know they could save millions by ditching trials and judges and just asking Galway Red from a football forum to get them ‘the full story’.
  17. Saw it yesterday and thought it was decent. On it’s own it’s very good but it does make me question the point of the last film. Even taking into account the different director it feels like there wasn’t really a plan. Some bits were a bit frustrating (won’t mention so as not to spoil it) but overall pretty darn good.
  18. Do you even know what political correctness is? If so, how in the hell has that got anything to do with flares?
  19. Bet you ask the DJ to start a fire in the corner to ‘improve the atmosphere’.
  20. Yes that person is the problem here
  21. Quite a few people around me do. Mainly kids whose parents don’t even mention picking them up. I think it’s a bit shoddy but each to their own.
  22. What reason should they listen to? This has hardly been a massive campaign, some people raised it to the council and they have acted. Who really cares?
  23. They’re changing a sign to show the literary reference it comes from. That doesn’t set any movement back unless there’s a large ‘Anti-Literary References’ movement I’m unaware of? Do people really read stuff like this and go ‘well I liked black people before this but now I’ve decided to be a massive racist’? No they don’t. So let’s stop the ridiculous outrage over something that doesn’t impact you in the slightest.
