Yeah the Black Lawyers shit was baffling and they did a great job of ruining their reputation. Produced Clark Carlisle basically telling them to fuck off though so it was worth it.

Chelsea refusing to apologise to Clattenburg in there statement is the part that pisses me off. Like there's no reason for them to not publicly apologise for the unnecessary stress they've put him under these past few weeks. They don't even have to mean it. Just put a basic apology in your statement and then move on to the Rafa press conference. Hopefully Clattenburg gets the compensation payoff he's warranted for it.

Chelsea always make it harder for themselves by not going about things properly when it comes to making statements. All they needed to do was apologise to Clattenburg, say it was a misunderstanding and move on. instead they come out on the defensive, just like they did with the terry incident. That's the thing that gets me the most, not the accusation itself, but the way they handle these things.

I understand that the fans will defend the club no matter what, but every time I hear them boo Anton Ferdinand,it just irritates the fuck out of me. They seem to think the world is against them and that everything that's happened is part of a conspiracy against the club. I realise that not all CFC fans are like that, but it's not something you really see with other clubs, at least not in such a blatant way. Now any time there's the slightest bit of controversy involving CFC, they are going to be under immense scrutiny. It's ruining their reputation, and the people in charge are just embarrassing themselves.

Chelsea fans can hide behind the ''Oh the club did the right thing in reporting it'' excuse but any right thinking and sensible person can see it was an attempt to ruin a ref who they thought screwed them. The allegation was made public almost immediately after the game, there was no trying to keep it quiet and let the FA deal with it. They knew what they were doing. And now it's been proven that Clattenburg is innocent, they won't even offer as much as a ''Our bad, sorry.''

And Ramires, what the fuck does he know? He can't speak English yet he can understand the phrase ''Shut up you monkey'' (which was never actually said...) but he conveniently can't remember when it actually happened? Gimme a break.

um, this is england.

there was zero chance anything was ever gonna be kept quiet. unless youre unfamiliar with the english press

but yeah im with silent alarm, if a player is racially abused after a game, he should not announce it or go immediately to the FA. if a player reports this kind of thing, quite frankly they're damaging this great sport

That isn't what I'm saying and you know it. Don't straw man.

yeah it's not really failing to report racism if there's no racism. it's unavoidable that a circus will be made about any sort of incident like this

Its not a straw argument. Ramires thought he heard racism and reported it. Way he did it could have been handled but I dont see how its THAT different. Someoen heard racism, he went to the officials. Ramires isnt exactly the sketchiest character. The guy more or less is pretty damn harmless.

I'll be the first to admit the FA are jackasses, but they admitted it too. They said everything was upto code. Not reporting would have leaked out and caused problems.

The only thing left that actually needs to be done is an apology from Chelsea and Ramires to clattenberg. It wont happen from Chelsea but Rami might. Also Mikel threatening to break Clattenberg's legs

I will say this though, if I ran chelsea I wouldnt have done it. Racist or not I think we're all sick of this shit
