Apparently Everton have agreed an extension to the loan repayment.  This is one of their supporters replies.

1 HR AGO
Meanwhile, over the pond in the New York Supreme Court 777 Partners have been sued by multiple organizations for unpaid debts and contract breaches with lawsuits describing their financial practices as a "house of cards" and a "sprawling fraudulent enterprise".
It's all on public record for anyone to access.

An apparent division in the Chelsea team seemingly on skin colour, who'd have thunk it.

If you watch the whole clip, the major disagreement that starts it all and lasts the longest is between Madueke and Jackson. Both try and nick the ball off Gusto, then the argument continues with Gusto trying to calm them down. Palmer then presumably joins in to say ďIím the designated takerĒ.

Nothing to with race, at all.

Well I did say apparent. The only clip I saw was Gallagher/Palmer/Madeueke point when Jackson then comes steaming in. Seen the rest now.

I know , Pickford taking halfway line free kicks launching it to Tarkowski and Onana challenging each other for the same ball.
With their sleeves rolled up Sean Dyche style. That's his fighting boys.

Bit off to see one disagreement in a 5 second Twitter clip and automatically launch two footed into a statement about race, though, I'd have thought.

I'm sorry. I will never equate Chelsea and racism again.

It was ugly to watch, a complete embarrassment, the club should be handing out fines.

There is no need for that stance my friend, you're very succinct at not accepting wrong so keep going.
As others have pointed out in this case it wasn't racism that ball was snatched from Jackson and handed to Palmer. Palmer is designated penalty taker and it was the right thing to do regardless of score. The shambolic  petulance shown by Jackson/Gusto/Madueke summed up the horrible club and all that's wrong with it.
However I am sure on Rule Britannia FB page there will be a few tuts and comments such as "these awful people in our midst" on trios behaviour.

Itís great, though, that even when winning 6-0 Chelsea still manage to find another way to look a laughing stock.

It also sums up what an impossible job Poch has there. An expensively assembled collection of individuals, most of whom I bet he had no say in signing. Palmer was a cracking signing though, and I don't think it's much of an exaggeration to say that without him and his goals they'd have been in deep shit this season.

All that aside, I have to admit that I was wrong about Palmer. I had the media just bigging him up cos he was at Chelsea from ManC stock.

And penalties included cos they are difficult to take, his goals, assists & general all round play are just wonderful.

Is he a better player than Foden?

With that height & a little bit of physicality, I think he is.

He overtakes Foden with most punchable face in the league though.

That aside, what a wonderful footballer having a wonderful season in a team that is an absolute fucking basket case, who are a divided bunch of individual talents, as opposed to being a team (very much like ManU).

If a manager could unite all of those players, he would have one cracking team in his hands after getting rid of some of the shit like Cucarella, Jackson & Gallagher (albeit Gallagher could be a squad player due to his work rate).

Foden and Palmer are both blighted by the common regional condition, 'Mancunian Face'. They are to be pitied, not punched.
