This is rather timely as it's Christmas, but in places like Belgium and the Netherlands for example students dress up as "Black Pete". You look at that here and it's shocking, whereas to many there they don't see what all the fuss is about.

He's French. Black Pete isn't a thing there AFAIK. Also he's a Harlem Globetrotter - wildly unacceptable.

Unacceptable, but not particularly unusual. Though being French and having played with so many international players you'd think he'd know better (and I also presume somebody has taken the photo).

Salah is approaching Messi/Ronaldo goalscoring levels at the moment. He won’t be at Liverpool long if he keeps this up.

Why is Jose always so miserable. His demeanour has definitely got even worse these past few weeks. If you go back and see when he first started managing Chelsea, the difference is stark.

What was the Griezmann post? Seems to have been deleted.

Yeah, and not just the uniform, he blacked up his skin too.

Edit: Yeah see Mafro's post above.

He'd cost an absolute fortune as he isn't even 1 year into his 5 year contract plus he's quite a grounded lad. Coutinho is from Brazil, Barca are huge there so it's a different situation. Plus we still held onto him for one more year.

Special mention to Oxlade Chamberlain who's really playing well at the moment, his closing down was phenomenal yesterday and he was unlucky to hit the post.

Someone should have told him there are white Globetrotters.

I thought he deserved his MotM award yesterday - he was excellent.

Lanzini has been charged for diving in the Stoke game, which is fair enough. However, I'd like to see retrospective action taken against both Kane and Alli of Spurs for their horror tackles. I don't give a strawberry float if they were "punished" at the time. They were both potential career ending tackles and they should also get banned.

Yes, I agree.

Look what Pogba did the similar thing and yet they both get away with it. :fp:

I can't wait for Alli to get sent off at the World Cup, resulting in England crashing out and him going from media darling to scapegoat. The cycle must be completed.

Surely opposition managers will start asking their players to wind him up because he'll fall for it every time.
