  1. Roman Abramovich has put Chelsea up for sale by inviting potential buyers to bid for the club this week. Telegraph Sport exclusively revealed on Monday that Chelsea owner Abramovich will receive bids for the club and Swiss billionaire Hansjorg Wyss has since confirmed he is one of the parties who has been given the opportunity to make an offer. It is understood that potential buyers have been contacted by an American-based merchant bank, claiming to be in charge of the sale of Chelsea. Chelsea have not responded to the claims of Wyss or the belief that the club is now for sale. Interested parties are thought to have been told that Abramovich wants around £4 billion for Chelsea, but sources close to the process believe that he can only expect to receive bids in the region of £2bn. Abramovich has previously turned down offers worth £2.2bn for Chelsea, while the club’s debt to him is £1.51bn. Advertisement Telegraph Sport knows of at least three parties interested in buying Chelsea, with Wyss claiming he is one of four potential buyers to have been contacted. It is understood that parties have been encouraged to make their best bids by the end of this week, with Abramovich now under huge pressure to sell Chelsea. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has resulted in calls for Abramovich to be sanctioned, despite claims he has offered support to peace talks between the two countries. The 55-year-old’s spokesperson has not responded to reports he is selling his properties, including his mansion in Kensington Palace Gardens. Abramovich has attempted to distance himself from Russian president Vladimir Putin, but, speaking to Swiss newspaper Blick, Wyss said: “Like all other oligarchs, he (Abramovich) is also in a panic. Abramovich is trying to sell all his villas in England. He also wants to get rid of Chelsea quickly. I and three other people received an offer on Tuesday to buy Chelsea from Abramovich. Advertisement “I have to wait four to five days now. Abramovich is currently asking far too much. You know, Chelsea owe him £2bn. “As of today, we don't know the exact selling price. I can well imagine starting at Chelsea with partners. But I have to examine the general conditions first. But what I can already say: I'm definitely not doing something like this alone. If I buy Chelsea, then with a consortium consisting of six to seven investors.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/03/02/roman-abramovich-puts-chelsea-sale-swiss-billionaire-hansjorg/

    Mohamed Salah

    Maybe it's because Im feeling like dogshit but there's a few too many past tense comments by Mo in these reports whether they are in the Echo or elsewhere. Recently we've heard some positive comments about him staying while his form has been less than stellar yet here we are, 2 goals against the mancs and it's 'something else' now. Is he wanting sole control of his image rights? As a fan, I really dont have a clue what he wants from Liverpool.

    little things that annoy the shit out of you

    Fucking hell, woke up this morning feeling shit and Ive got the lurghy (no, not that one). Dont know whether Ive caught it from my mate who'd given it to his wife and when she was talking to me before we went to L4 on Tuesday or, a bit of a chill after doing a near 25 mile bike ride on Wednesday. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck.

    Mohamed Salah

    So what the fuck is it about if it's not all about the money? Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah says his Anfield contract impasse is not all “about the money” as he continues to raise doubts about his long-term future at the club. Salah and Liverpool have failed to agree on an extension to his current deal, which expires in the summer of 2023. The Egyptian is seeking a contract in line with the highest-paid Premier League players and his latest comments, given to Four Four Two magazine, make it clear the situation is no closer to being resolved. Asked if he was sure he will remain at Liverpool beyond next season, Salah said: “I don’t know, I have one year left. I think the fans know what I want, but in the contract it’s not everything about the money at all. So I don’t know, I can’t tell you exactly. I have one year left and the fans know what I want.” Salah will turn 30 this summer and has been offered a significant package in line with Liverpool’s budget which would make him one of the highest-paid players in Anfield history. Liverpool, however, have limits as to what they are prepared to pay. They are not inclined to shift their policy in order to give their stars as much as or more than the highest-salaried players at Manchester City or Paris Saint-Germain, where the long-term financial resources seem to be limitless. Club owners Fenway Sports Group recognised at the start of last season that several key players were heading towards the final two years of their contracts and needed a renewal. Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Alisson Becker extended last summer. So too did captain Jordan Henderson after a brief disagreement about his terms. Salah scored twice in Liverpool’s 4-0 demolition of Manchester United on Tuesday Credit: REUTERS It was clear midway last season, however, that Salah did not believe his offer reflected his status and the first in a series of strategically placed and occasionally cryptic interviews followed which raised doubts as to whether he will sign another contract. None of those interviews, whether in Marca, AS or elsewhere, have had the required effect. The latest remarks come with Liverpool in the midst of a season in which they are chasing an unprecedented quadruple. If the impasse is not about money, there is a lack of clarity from Salah as to what the issue is. It certainly cannot be Liverpool’s ambition, their trophy-winning potential or how highly Salah is valued by his coach, Jurgen Klopp, within a team in which he has become a Kop legend. Liverpool will hope Salah will find the prospect of leaving Anfield unbearable as his contract continues to wind down. On the positive side, both sides want a resolution, Salah repeatedly insisting his intention is to stay at Anfield to break goalscoring records. “This club means a lot to me – I’ve enjoyed my football here more than anywhere, I gave the club everything and everybody saw that,” said Salah. “I’ve had a lot of unbelievable moments here, winning trophies, individual goals, individual trophies. It’s like a family here.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2022/04/22/mohamed-salah-says-liverpool-contract-deadlock-not-money/

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    My god, they really are insufferable, arent they? They are the ones to make it all about themselves with their 'Look at us, we're the only ones offended by this. Why are you?' Talk about ashamed of nothing, offended by everything!

    The New IPTV Thread

    Im thinking of jibbing off Sky because my discount is coming to an end again and likely to go back up to £96 a month. I want to keep watching the footie and access to F1 races live. So, talk to me about IPTV! To watch PL, CL and F1 via IPTV legally, am I effectively going to be paying a similar amount to an IPTV service as that for a Sky Sports package? Put another way, to watch the same, erm, cheaper, do I have to use a not legal IPTV app? Had a look at that Nanomid set up but it says it doesnt have any content andyou have to install your own playlist of channels? Well how do you 'find' the channels you want to make up your playlist?

    Thiago Alcantara

    Load of nonsense but not surprise what you repeatedly spout about Henderson. Jurgen must be severely short sighted not to agree with you, eh? Absolutely bizarre, he was very impressive in the first half and Klopp wouldnt have kept him on if everyone else was on another level. Flagged a bit in the 2nd but nowhere near as bad as his constatnt detractors make out.

    Well who'd have thought? I mean their cunt fans were only singing about the s*n and murderers on Tuesday night.

    chelsea still have a game in hand and still 5 points ahead of spurs and arsenal so still pretty safe bet for finishing in the top 4. The cunts have one eye on the cup final and will be taking it relatively easy until then.
  10. How embarassing for Schteve, working as the number 2 to the man who was his number 2 at Twente.

    Abramovich reportedly puts chelsea up for sale

    I am the only one who thinks it is bizarre chelsea fans, with all their recent history of racist abuse, railled against the Cubs owners buying them, as they were considered 'racists' due to historical comments?

    Im ever the optomist Ronnie but if Im absolutely honest, I dont know where city would drop points in their remaining games. It is going to be a truely unexpected event. Fucking West Ham and Leicester aways have cost us massively and the thing is, both those defeats were utterly avoidable.

    Thiago Alcantara

    Thought the boy was phenomenal last night, he was at the centre of everything. It's really hard to pick the best player out of that performance as everyone was excellent but I think he shaded it. Was really concerned when he seemed to fall on his arse stretching for a ball late in the 2nd half then started signalling to the bench he wanted to come off. I know Jurgen has said it was because of his ripped shorts(?) and hope he just had a numb bum and nothing more serious.

    The mancs are lying cunts. There's been no Munich chants at Anfield for 30 years. If they're saying we sang anything Munich related last night, they're cunts.

    Man Utd (H) - Tue 19th Apr 2022 (8:00pm)

    Hopefully, the tide is turning against those clubs fanbase that sing about Hillsbrough. For years this has gone unreported by the sports pages despite it happening every time we play one of them or, when caught on tv games. I watched the full game again today on Sky and the filthy manc cunts can clearly be heard singing their filth. I heard it at the game last night and told the cunts to fuck off but not sure they heard me! It has to stop, no if or buts and Sky \ BT etc need to call it out instead of pretending it doesnt happen. The cunts offer profuse apologies if a pitch side mic picks up 'industrial' language yet they never mention these Hillsbrough songs.

    YNWA

    Anyone and I mean anyone, who thinks, believes or says singing YNWA during any memorial to a tragic event or remberance can just royally fuck off as far as Im concerned. Minute silences are impeccably observed with YNWA often sung at the end.

    Ian Callaghan, what an 80 years young absolute legend. Got on the 27 bus to Anfield to make his debut, went home after on the 26! Goodness knows how many years later, still looked spiritly enough to run rings round a united side made to look utter shite!

    Man Utd (H) - Tue 19th Apr 2022 (8:00pm)

    Martin Atkinson was an absolute twat tonight. Again. Once again he's at his old trick of trying to level up a game we're winning by giving the oppos all the easy free kicks and deliberately standing in the way of players trying to pass the ball to a teammate. I swear I saw Thiago having to dribble around the cunt to create another chance in the 2nd half. A moving tribute to Ronaldo's baby son observed all around the ground. Have those everton cunts gone on about us 'defiling' the moment by us singing YNWA? The united fans couldnt help showing themselves to be utter cunts as well with their 'Always the victim' and Won it 3 times without killing anyone' chants in the 2nd half when they had nothing else to sing about.

    Jurgen Norbert Klopp

    Absolutely criminal dickheads like Carragher says Liverpool should have 'won more' while ignoring that fact.

    Man Utd (H) - Tue 19th Apr 2022 (8:00pm)

    Magnificent. The boys were awesome. Im so glad, that Jurgen is a Red!
  23. Like I keep saying, no other club has such inquests into their goals as we do. I think the most telling thing here is not one city player appealed for the ball as going out from that corner. That picture isnt any good because it isnt in direct line with the goal line and goal posts.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    How come the cunts couldnt get past Panathinaikos in 1970?! Because they were fucking shit, that's why!
