  1. I don't think it will be reduced. Its not like we marginally bent the rules. We committed more offences than the average Irishman in Botany Bay. We should be taking the punishment and moving on. Its not like we are going to do much business on January anyway. Not sure you are right about the ban . i have read the 44 page summary following the appeal to FIFA What struck me is that there was an awful lot of subjective conclusions indeed more often than not there isn’t a specific rule just how other rules could be interpreted another set of eyes not in the employ of FIFA may well look at things differently.
  2. In other cases the parties have agreed that the decision be announced before written reasons published . A good example is the Real Madrid case. They made an application for what’s called an “Expedited Procedure “ Their appeal was then heard by a sole arbitrator on the 14th December 2016. CAS notified all parties of its decision on 20/12/2016.
  3. No doubt the majority have picked up on the rumours regarding Erickson's wife but irrespective there is something massively wrong at Spurs, and that’s an understatement. Hey we’ve wasted a shed load of money on transfers but now they are spending money they are a pale shadow of the team they were two seasons ago. Other than Kane and Son the vast bulk of their squad have peaked . I can see Poch walking or maybe even Levy pulling the trigger the problem is they are going to have to service a multi multi million pound debt and to do that CL is a must. Do I worry about their problems ? Do I hell its very very amusing

    Every goal is actually scrutinised by VAR. If your talking about how many decisions are reversed then very few , I think it’s something like 8 that have been disallowed not many but having been at the game on Sunday and seeing how it impacts it isn’t a nice feeling at all. For me it’s the lack of consistency and indeed the lack application of VAR. For instance Arsenal’s 3rd on Sunday should have been disallowed no offside or the like but the goal was scored direct from a free kick and an Arsenal player was within a metre of the wall. Or what about our game against Man U when a Utd player encroached into the box before the penalty was taken?

    Does anyone actually understand what the rules actually are? Every time the likes of Dermot Gallagher explains how a particular decision has been arrived at the exact reverse parameters are employed in reaching another.
  6. Love the optimism. As mad as it may seem I am starting to wonder if this will be Kantes last season with us. Ironically it’s because of another youngster who you actually don’t mention. That player is Ethan Ampadu. In addition I just don’t think Zouma has the skill set of a top class defender that may be down to his injury but then again it might just be he isn’t good enough either way it’s an area that needs addressing particularly if we adopt a 3-4-3 as our go to formation.
  7. And you know this how? Chelsea Youth Twitter is probably one of the most reliable sources of information when it comes to Chelsea news and this seems to be source of the current hint that he has indeed signed.
  8. Don’t forget that Tomori is a very capable full back indeed in his academy days he regularly played as right back.
  9. From what little has been put in the public domain the main thrust of the problem revolves around players who participated in trial matches or extended periods of trials. FIFA now believe that playing in “organised games” counts as signing a player. In effect they believe if you play a non EU player under the age of 18 in say a summer youth tournament or have them stay over for a period of say 6 weeks for a trial that player has in effect signed for you. It’s why so many cases were looked into by FIFA. From what I can gather one of the “proven “ charges was Bernard Tarore , it’s worth noting he had no association with any club in his native country is effect he wasn’t registered as a player anywhere prior to signing with us He didn’t sign on a contract until after he turned 18 but it seems when we bought him and his family over to England wepaid for his education & played him in several trial matches.I haven't seen it in writing but my take on it is that the FA sanctioned the games he played in hence why the FA were also slapped on the wrist. The trouble with FIFAs regulations are they are clear as mud and time after have to time they have to issue clarification and the further clarification and so on.
  10. In view of my comment made way back in June (copied above) and articles like this one https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7439453/Chelsea-alert-leading-agents-expect-transfer-business-January.html Seems there is chatter out there in those football circles so maybe, just maybe!
  11. In theory they can sign him now , and on the basis that he is already training full time with them, then its possible he has already signed. What they can’t do is actually register him to play.
  12. Reports are they are paying £8 million.
  13. The journey home to Dorset on Saturday was like pulling teeth. Mrs Terraloon wanted to talk about the game and I didn’t . Two and a bit hours of sheer joy! Ive calmed down a bit now and have read a report or two and just about everyone is talking about Dave and Zouma and with good reason. Kurt simply isn’t good enough but Dave has been good enough but now his ability is in decline. That’s sad but as we were saying at the game we are particularly open on his side and time after time teams are targeting him. I don’t know if it came over but as the game wore on he was struggling to get up and down and on several occasions we had to wait for him to get Into an attacking position. It’s truly sad but as many have suggested it’s much akin to how Ivanovich was targeted and eventually had to be dropped. I might be wrong but I see that Dave was 30 last week and his contract ends at the end of the season. I really can’t see him being offered a new contract.
  14. Did he or didn’t he sign? https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-7375681/Chelsea-news-Callum-Hudson-Odoi-returns-Chelsea-training-injury.html
  15. Gonna have to add “really really “ to the sorry
