Jared Kushner in Colorado the Same Day as Chelsea Owner, Putin Confidant Roman Abramovich

jared-kushner-ivanka-trump

With the Donald Trump White House and Vladimir Putin/Russia we have seen endless coincidences and plenty of collaboration. However, we have not seen evidence of definitive treasonous collusion. “The smoking gun,” as one would proverbially put it, hasn’t been found yet, but it could be coming to light reasonably soon.

Both the United States Senate and the Federal Bureau of investigation are investigating whether or not Russia/Putin colluded with the Trump camp, including his son-in-law Jared Kushner, to alter the outcome of the 2016 United States Presidential election.

This is it.

The game that the English Premier League season has built up to. The game that could earn Chelsea their 6th English Premier League title.

N’golo Kante Could Surpass Makele as Chelsea FC’s Best Ever Defensive Midfielder

It’s not easy to make a comparison between N’Golo Kante and Claude Makelele. They’re a pair of five-foot-six defensive midfielders from France who have played the position better than almost anyone in a Chelsea shirt. Makelele effectively created the position of the modern defensive midfielder and N’Golo Kante is in the process of building upon it. He’s certainly not there yet but Kante is on course to become one of the best players in Chelsea’s history.

How To Be Taken Seriously As A Soccer Fan In The US

TEAM-USA-soccer-2014-fifa-world-cup

Generally speaking, soccer fans in the US get a lot of stick. Most of it stems from the fact they call it ‘soccer’ instead of ‘football.’ What fans back in Europe don’t seem to understand is that American Football is the number one sport over here. Of course, we don’t call it ‘American’ football, it’s just ‘football’ to us Americans.

So, if everyone started calling soccer ‘football’ as well, everyone would be confused! We don’t use the term soccer because we don’t respect the game or understand its history, it’s purely out of convenience.

Will Chelsea FC Have Enough Depth for Champions League Football Next Season?

chelsea fc

By Ian Preston

Chelsea FC need just one more win in order to bring the Premier League title trophy back to Stamford Bridge this season. With glorious victory comes the spoils, as the old saying goes, and part of those spoils for Chelsea will be a place back at European football’s top table, the UEFA Champions League, next season.

Having gone a whole campaign without European football, however, it does beg the question of whether or not Antonio Conte’s squad will be strong enough to stand up to the added demands of Champions League football.

Chelsea essentially clinched the Premier League title once Tottenham Hotspur fell at West Ham United last Friday night. The comments of Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino seemed to imply concession. Today, Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said that his side has taken a big step towards clinching the club’s sixth league title (fifth in the Premier era).

Monday saw Conte’s Chelsea beat Middlesbrough 3-0 in a very lopsided defeat that was of major consequence for the opposition as well.

Romelu Lukaku Voices His Issues with Chelsea, Manchester United Transfer Reports

romelu-lukaku

Both Chelsea FC and Manchester United are after Romelu Lukaku, the Everton striker- that’s a narrative we’ve seen quite a bit on the back pages this past month. It’s certainly nothing new, as Lukaku was linked with a move back to his former club, Chelsea this past summer too.

The Stamford Bridge return rumors have been buzzing for awhile, but a new report from The Sun has set the striker off, and he made some Tweets yesterday indicating how upset he was. (Someone taking issue with The Sun and their “reporting”…SHOCKING! WOW!)

With Tottenham Hotspur being upset by West Ham United on Friday night, Chelsea FC pretty much have the Premier League title wrapped up. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino made comments in the postgame media session that seemingly implied concession of the league title already.

Now Chelsea could become champions as early as Friday if they win their next two games. The first of the two clashes is against Middlesbrough, who will be relegated if they fail to beat Blues.

You previously saw what would happen if the National Football League became British. If not, then go here to this link and see NFL logos re-imagined in the style and theme of Great Britain. Clubline Football.com took the Premier League and converted the crests to how they would look if they were was branded up like the MLS, MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL in America.

Club line took every Premier League team and AMERICANISED them. Sorry, it’s Americanised, not Americanized.

 The infographic embedded below shows you each team in alphabetical order.

Juan Mata Denies Ever Having Tension or Friction with Jose Mourinho

juan mata

There were many reactions a year ago (roughly) when it was learned that Jose Mourinho was replacing Louis van Gaal as Manager at Manchester United. One of the most basic impulse responses, among those well-informed, was “hey Juan Mata isn’t going to like this. He’s going to want out.”

It seemed logical given how Mata was glued to the bench at Chelsea when United brought him over, for a then club record £37.1 million transfer in January 2014.
