Ahhh Chelsea! The club with the most whiter than white morals.

The club that banned three supporters for life as soon as they were identified after horrid racial actions on a train on the Paris Metro. Bravo! Formidable!

Oh hang on! Their captain, their heartbeat, their ‘Braveheart’ was found guilty of racially abusing a player during a game and they gave him a new contract, pay rise and the arm band.

We are all going to hell in a hand cart.

Lots of Englishmen who were interested in rugby union when they beat Wales claim they are no longer interested after they lost to Ireland.

Mind you rugby has become a bit like football in that it’s a an over-coached game of chess that lacks off-the-cuff flair.

If you think rugby union is boring you really are clueless.

@Spamking

Rugby union’s problem is 15 players per side is too many on the pitch.

It was the same old Northern Hemisphere rugby union at the weekend. It’s a different and vastly superior game south of the equator.

I would imagine the Southern Hemisphere laugh at the England cricket team as well as the England rugby union team.

You’re right about Sean Dyche.

Every manager defends his players no matter what evidence proves the opposite is actually true.
