^^ I'd have more concern if the rumors that he just wants to be rid of it as quickly as possible are true, then you could definitely end up with somebody who won't keep the showing rolling. I figured at first he would wait for some assurances that whoever buys it will be more of the same, but there's less chance of that if he's just looking to get out ASAP and sells to whoever has the cash.

^^^Not a good look pretty sure Tuchel spoke out against them as well.

^^Thats the problem, the main reason he is selling is to get ahead of the British Government seizing his assets. He claims that he is donating the proceeds to the relief efforts and he doesn't need the money, but then why the $3Bn price tag on the club. The thing is he could have sold to Radcliffe a couple of years ago, after his visa got canceled but he didn't. Now Radcliffe own Nice and is supposedly not interested. He would be most ideal as he is British and he was a supporter of the Club so he would want to see success maybe not at the financial losses that Abramovich was willing to take but he would want to see success. I just know that most of the supporters do not want any American owners. They are more keen to Arab/Oil Barron owners.

Not sure where else to post this, but is anyone seeing this gift Bayern just got?

Salzburg dominated the last game and Bayern equalized late. They give up an early penalty in this leg and then the most bogus VAR given penalty I have seen in a bit. And as I type this, the wheels are coming off for Salzburg. It's a shame. I was rooting for Salzburg.

"Manchester City are still cautious about their chances of landing Erling Haaland - although the Blues are undoubtedly in pole position to secure the Borussia Dortmund sensation.

Sources in both Germany and Spain say that Haaland has agreed personal terms for a move to the Etihad Stadium this summer. With the Blues ready and able to meet the £63million release clause, there is no real obstacle to the transfer going ahead."

There is only two ways Chelsea are fucked first is if they purposefully make us default on wages which would lead to administration in the PL and a 9 point deduction (which right now would keep us in top 4). That doesn't seem likely based on the amendments added Saturday which allows for them to use TV revenue.

2nd is if they pick the worst bid. Currently the rumors of a private Saudi Media group, and the Boehly group, and several others that want to buy the club. Worst case would be if Woody Johnsons bid is accepted as he would be like Kroenke and it would be a disaster. Yes the days of Roman just spending and not caring are gone, but if they get the right technical director (if Cech leaves) and transfer director the team could still be successful. Their academy is full of talent and they have several loaned out players that can contribute.

"If the Saudi Media Group bid is real (it's a high offer, in the circs!), it's hard to see how it can be allowed, even before we get to perceived shift over human rights issues. There is surely too much connection to Saudi state, meaning a closeness between Newcastle and Chelsea"

^^^^While I think the statement was not smart by whoever greenlit that for the club (Bruce Buck, Marina Granovskaia, or Petr Cech) there is a lot of frustration that the government is targeting supporters more than they are Roman Abramovich. There is a lot of Tory posturing to make it seem like they are being tough on Russian Oligarchs while still buying Russian Oil (those sanctions didn't go into place until Saturday or Sunday).

The request was for the club to give their tickets away to supporters for free and pay Boro for their allotment thus no money goes to RA yet the Government slow played it and refused to budge. This is the last match until April with the International Break coming up so supposedly they are working on the amendment for supporters but I am not holding my breath. Hopefully a buyer is selected before the end of the break.

Quote :
"An angry Cristiano Ronaldo appeared to slap a mobile phone out of an Everton fan's hand after Manchester United's 1-0 loss at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The incident occurred as Ronaldo walked off the pitch, passing a group of fans on his way back to the locker rooms.

In footage shared to Twitter by 'EvertonHub', Ronaldo can be seen moving his right arm, before a smashing sound is heard.

Almost at the precise moment that Ronaldo appears to slap the phone, a fan can be heard goading him by shouting: "You're s***!""


To compensate, Ronaldo has invited the fan to attend a game at Old Trafford. I doubt that's on an Everton fan's wish list.
