1. I watched a Bundesliga match this weekend and it was crowdless

They played chanting and cheering over the PA. It flet like a normal game from a TV viewing perspective.

2. I watched too, but on a BT stream (they chose not to use the artificial crowd noise that the

Bundesliga offered.) Home teams there have been slaughtered overall, so deffo there is a 'behind closed doors' effect being seen.

6. Love the graphic to make Chelski seem relevant LOL

The graphic since 2003 is absolutely laughable and pathetic. Like English football started that year and not in the late 1800s.

What was Chelski pre-2003 before Russian oligarch and Putin buddy Abramovich purchased the club and started pumping amounts of money never before seen in soccer/football to effectively buy trophies?? $2 billion dollars and counting so GTFO

A fan base full of racists and a club owned by a corrupt Russian oligarch who has been denied a UK visa.

A club who before every match has to pass out little plastic flags for the crappy fans to wave for a little bit before they get back to their phones and the racist chants.

Thank you for making my day. I'll pass that graphic from the day football was born in 2003 to my footie fans so they can get a good laugh out of it. 'Since 2003".....

7. awwww, it will be oki

Broadbrush much?

Every damn English (not just English either, globally) footie team has its share of goons. That does not reflect the passion the rest of us have. Abramovich was never denied a visa btw. He withdrew his application and was granted Israeli citizenship. He has spent tens of millions fighting antisemitism and racism as well.

We won trophies before Roman bought the team anyway, including 3 major European Cups.

I was born in 1996 so it isn't like I was around for the old First Division anyway.

I support the team I grew up with, and if you do not like that, then by all means, block me. I will not be shamed into denying my support.

What team do you support?

I am sure I can have a right proper go as well.

Not my problem you have issues.

8. Seems I touched a nerve

Google chelsea racist for the latest sampling of racist issues from the last 10 years. Or hey, create one "Since 2003" since no one else comes close

"From 2003"..... when life on earth started.

Abramovich was very close to Yeltsin and is a VERY close Putin buddy (whom Abramovich gifted a multi-million $35-$50 million yacht for his birthday) who got rich along with other Russian oligarchs around the same time. Corruption, extortion, assassinations from that group.....yeah, a real stand up guy for sure.

And the UK visa was probably going to be denied and Abramovich did not want to face questions in court about how he made his money.

Someone defending Abramovich on DU. Never thought I'd see it. But...2020.

Bye.

9. we are a top 10 in the world team for ages now, you attempts to try and frame 20 years

of success as not being a relevant team are laughable.

To slide over into US sports

Are the Boston Red Sox worthy of your framing that tries to diminish two decades of recent success?

They did not win a title for 86 years.

The last won they won before 2004 was 1918.

They have won four now, but according to you, this makes them irrelevant, because WWI was going on the last time they won before the 2000's.

They have now won in

2004
2007
2013
2018

Same for yank football

New England Patriots

all six of their super Bowl wins have been since 2001

they won nothing in the before that, despite being founded in 1959.

back to real football

What about Manchester City?

They were overall shite for decades until they were bought by billionaire Arabs in 2008. They were even relegated to the THIRD tier (Division Two) in 1998. Talk about a plazzy new-found-success team, lololol, they had not won shit for decades before Sheikh Mansour.

As for your whingeing on about millions spent on players, do you even follow the transfer market now? Real Madrid, Barca, PSG, City, and Man U all make us look like small time spenders now.

You can google racist fans and then most any team and come up with a shedload of hits. It most deffo is not a Chels only issue at all. Try going over and playing in Serie A as a black player. In terms of racist attacks, you obviously know nothing about European football as whole.

You come in all hot and heavy attacking me for the supporting the team I grew up with and love and then try to slag me off for defending myself and it.



Go share that post with your m8's. I do not give a damn if they laugh or cry.

10. "Top 10 for ages"

"Top 10 for ages" is top three of the most absurd pro Chelski things you've said today considering there's only 20 teams in the Premier League.

What next? You're gonna celebrate the participation trophies Lampard got as a kid as well? Maybe you can get John Terry to dress up full kit to claim them as well.

Go on lad. Keep embarrassing yourself.

Go Russia! Go Putin! Go Abramovich! Go the Blue Chelsea Plastics comrades!! Go Blue Racists!!

FYI The Red Sox did not get bought by a Russian oligarch criminal who spent more money than anyone had ever spent on any sports team before in order to win. Same for the Patriots.

This is so funny I can't

I am not a lad, btw.

Top 10 IN THE WORLD, not the bloody league, ffs

SMDH

You are embarrassing yourself trying to negate the success we have had almost since I was born (staring with the FA Cup in 1996/76 and then a double in 1997/98.)

You sound jelly as hell, so much argy bargy over a footie post.




and yes

GO BLUES

KTBFFH

12. Top 10 In the world???

Hahahahahahaha, ok, that breaks into the top 3 silliest things you've said in this thread alone.

Chelski have won the same amount of leagues as Sunderland and yet here you are claiming the little racist russian oligarch owned club you support is top 10 in the world. Even Villa laugh at you. Try catching them first before spewing this bull....

Are you really that out of touch with reality?? I feel bad now. You're as delusional as Trump.

This is sad.

Edit: "Top 10 in the world"

If you want to respond you can message me directly. I may need the laughs later.

Otherwise, do svidaniya blue comrade.

13. what team do you support m8? you keep dodging the question

You obviously no very little about football.

It is LAUGHABLE to try and compare us to fucking Sunderland, who have been on the verge of administration for multiple years and are down in the third tier.

Sunderland's titles were in 189192, 189293, 189495, 190102, 191213, 193536! All but one were over 100 years ago. The last one was bloody 84 years ago.

Modern era football is vastly more competitive and difficult than some 1890's shite played on gloried sheep/cow meadows.

These the ten year UEFA club coefficient ratings, and this includes the one truly shit season (2015/16, when Mourinho got sacked in December and we finished 10th, and thus no Europe so zero coefficient points) we have had in the last 20 plus years. If we had just had the average amount of points we have had for a season since 2000, we would be FOURTH, but still are 5th overall for the past 10 years.


https://kassiesa.net/uefa/data/method5/trank10-2020.html



here are the coefficients one year before the season where we ended up with zero points, when we finished 10th, arff, in the EPL



Also, you really need to stop with the fucking baiting of me like I am some fucking Russian troll, it is bullshit and a personal attack.

14. LOL

Your arguments are laughable. "Coefficient". Ten year club ranking.

Stop cherry picking your BS points. Take your coefficients and ......... but before that, try catching Villa first tovarishch.

You seem on the verge of tears now so I won't waste any more of my precious time.

15. I am not cherry picking shit

You expose more how little you know about footie with each post.


Titles from 100, 120 years ago mean fuckall in terms of modern football.

For one thing, black players were extraordinarily rare until the 1970's.

Perfect example >>>> Viv Anderson was the first black player to win a senior England cap in 1978.

Villa? LOLOL

Villa's titles: 189394, 189596, 189697, 189899, 18991900, 190910, 198081

What's next, you ranting on about the 1896 Summer Olympics?

Maybe you can have a cry about the British Empire breaking up, seeing as you are obsessed with 19th Century and early 20th century England, back when the empire was at its peak.

Only tears I have m8 are from laughing at yer utter and silly tosh.

You also are a dodger, as you will not even say what club you support, despite repeated times I have asked.

Good at pushing divvy as fuck personal attacks and showing ignorance of football, not so good at answering a simple question.

16. I can't even laugh at your

sad posts anymore.

You support a pathetic little club with a well known racist fan base and shitty small club history until a criminal russian oligarch (who won't even try to apply for another visa because he crapped his pants about disclosure) started dumping close to two billion $ to buy championships.

So kindly go wave your free plastic flag and do one. And yeah, NOW I'm just going to ignore you as you had suggested earlier because quite frankly, you remind me so much of trump MAGA supporters!

Dasvidaniya!

18. Locking - this thread has turned nasty

There's no need for that. If you want to discuss the return of the Premier League (or even the FA Cup - is that coming back?), you can repost a thread about it, but I urge everyone to stay civil.
