Has anyone found out why KH considers Sarri a disgusting bastard yet? Was hoping she'd pop back in and explain.

Has he been stealing sweets from children again? Or does he do what I like to do and go round telling children that Santa is dead! The looks on their little faces. Priceless.

wild stab in the dark, but it may be to do with his nasty habit of chewing and inhaling nicotine soaked ciggy buts during games?  ;D

He was also given a 2 game ban in Italy for homophobic insults, maybe it's that?!  :-X

They’ve always attracted scummy fans in my opinion, so all this is no surprise.

Having said that, I actually work with a decent one who’s been an ST holder for decades at the Bridge. Very supportive of our fight for justice, TU man, couldn’t be further from the stereotypical racist Thatcherite. So do need to be careful about generalising.

But in general.........!

I don't think anyone is dumb enough to think all chelsea fans are like those idiots (but to be fair it was a massive amount of their away fans not just a handful), but because there is obviously a huge amount of decent fans there also a stadium ban maybe a good idea, as it would hopefully make the decent fans push out the knuckle-dragging idiots if they keep getting banned from seeing matches too, as this isn't a one off.

Absolutely. We are all human beings at the end of the day. There is good and bad everywhere and within any group of people. The bad apples always give the good people a bad name. That's sad, but it's life.

Having said the above, it's no generalisation to recognise the truth. Chelsea have some good people supporting them. Of course they have. But they also have more than their fair share of absolutely vile specimens who have earned themselves a genuinely poor and deserved reputation for racism, fascism, violent disorder, nationalism and anti-semitism.
Unfortunately, you fully expect this kind of thing from the likes of Chelsea and Millwall. It's crazy when you consider that London is such a diverse, multi-cultural city and supposedly one of the greatest and richest cities in the world. You'd think these people would be far more educated and broad minded about life.

But yes, it's a real shame that these inadequate individuals all come together in the name of a football club and bring its name, its reputation and the overall reputation of its fanbase into question. Same with Millwall. They have a reputation as the absolute dregs of society, and in many instances it's a deserved reputation. But not long ago I spent a day in the company of a Millwall fan from their neck of the woods who was up in Liverpool to meet a mutual friend. A lovely fella and very respectful of Liverpool and its people. When you think Millwall, you tend to automatically think scumbag too, but, of course, there are lots of good people who follow them all tarred with the same filthy brush earned by their lunatic fringe. Sadly, it's the social inadequates who follow those clubs who grab the headlines and bring about the reputation. Also, sadly, both of these clubs have far more than their fair share of vile idiots following them.

No, I get what you meant, no worries :)

More bad news for Chelsea

Police investigate allegation of historical racist abuse in Chelsea youth set-up

• Police understood to have talked to former staff member
• Inquiries relate to alleged abuse during the 1980s and 1990s

Police have been brought in to investigate allegations that black players in Chelsea’s youth system during the 1980s and 1990s were subjected to a “racist bullying culture” from members of staff.

Detectives from the child-abuse investigation team at Northwood police station in north-west London are looking into a complaint that one of the teenage footballers on Chelsea’s books was the victim of assault during the years when black players as young as 11 allegedly had to endure harrowing racial abuse.

“Police received an allegation of non-recent racially aggravated assault in September 2018,” a spokesman for the Metropolitan police said. “Inquiries are ongoing.”

At least two former players have been interviewed and it is also understood the police have spoken to one former staff member. “There have been no arrests,” the police spokesman said. “We do not confirm who we have spoken to as part of an investigation.”

The news of the police being involved comes at a difficult time for Chelsea; four supporters have been suspended from Stamford Bridge because of the abuse directed at Raheem Sterling during Manchester City’s visit two weekends ago. A number of Chelsea fans could be heard chanting an antisemitic song during their Europa League tie against Vidi in Budapest last week and the club released a statement to describe it as abhorrent and condemn “any individuals that can’t summon the brainpower to comprehend this simple message”.
