    This week, it's Frost vs. Nixon. Mackay vs. jam. Enjoy, readers. Over to you...

    Age: 22

    What team do you support? I support Chelsea.

    Why do you support Chelsea? Loved Zola back when I was a kid. So I supported Chelsea because of that mainly.

    If you could place any past Chelsea player into the current XI, who would it be?
    Stuck between Arjen Robben, Fat Frank and Michael Essien. For functionality reasons I'd put in Frank Lampard.

    What's the lowest you've ever been support Chelsea? Quite obviously this season by an almost immeasurable distance.

    And the best moment? Winning the champions league back in 2012.

    Which Chelsea player - past or present - have you had absolutely NO time for?
    That parasitic piece of **** known as Fernando Torres.

    What's your perfect breakfast?
    My Perfect breakfast would be Cheese Omelette, Pancakes, maple syrup, bacon, ENGLISH Mustard and some French Toast. Add a bit of Mango/OJ and that's me done.

    What's the drunkest birthday you've ever had?
    Funnily enough I have never actually drunk alcohol on my birthday. It's quite boring from me, but I don't really celebrate my birthdays, I celebrate achievements and milestone accomplishments, which for me a birthday is not, it's a simple passing of time rather than anything.

    What do you want as your funeral song?
    I would want Lupe Fiasco-Just Might Be Ok.

    Should e-cigarettes be prescribed on the NHS for people wanting to quit?

    Of course, I'm very liberal with drug use and E-cigarettes are clearly less harmful than normal cigarettes.

    The EU, jam. Should we be in or out?
    Course it should be in, easy as hell for me to get a job in Germany if we are in. It makes zero sense to be out of the EU, even if UK aren't getting enough from the EU, it is infinitely better staying in it than out of the EU.

    Should university education be free?
    In an ideal world, yes, knowledge and the quest for knowledge should not be limited to the financially able.

    What should we be doing to stop the radicalisation of young Muslims in this country?
    School projects, speak to young muslims about the issues facing them. I find that communication(and very open communication) allows those who are on the verge of radicalisation hopefully come to their senses. It's not just young muslims however, it's about all the marginalised members of society, so e.g. black people who turn to drug dealing and gang crime, especially in response to the racial profiling of the police. Communication is vital.

    How many migrants should we be taking into the UK?
    Find it funny that UK and USA talk about immigration when the majority of them are immigrants who basically killed off/oppressed the actual indigenous population. To answer your question however, if an immigrant is skilled enough and they have been thoroughly checked and are willing to assimilate to the culture that we have in this country, there should be no reason not to have them here. So I'd say a million immigrants.

    You've got a time machine, where are you going?
    Somewhere in West Africa in the 15th Century.

    If you could introduce a rule into football from ANY other sport (i.e. sin-bins), what would it be?
    It would be video refereeing for very major offences.

    What really pisses you off that shouldn't?
    People who try to get into my inner self.

    If you could be the greatest of all time at any profession which would you choose?

    Musician. There's something about performing live at a show, playing your song in a crowd of thousands of people that gets me going, the hairs of the back of your neck stand up.

    If you had to live the rest of your life in one supermarket aisle which one would you pick?
    The aisle with precooked duck/turkey obviously.

    What's your Death Row meal?
    Duck Chow Mein.

    And the name of your autobiography?
    A trip to understanding Jams mind.

    You can ban one TSR FF member forever. Who is it? And why?
    Shed End.

    What's your god damn problem with Mackay, jam?
    You state the obvious too much, if I wanted you to basically state the obvious I wouldn't be on the damn forum. You do know your football to a decent enough level for a deep football conversation though.

    What about The Shed End?
    Does this really require an explanation?

    Aside from Vae, who do you think has the best football knowledge on the forum?
    See, I really like SUG. Think there is a somewhat mutual respect of each other, I think he knows his stuff, very passionate member but he knows a lot about football. Although Louis deserves a mention. Doesn't post much now United are ****(coincidence?) but he knows a lot on the football side. Fizzel knows the more logistic side of football, he got that down to a T as does Zerforax but Fizzel knows more about football. Nickini I generally agree with on the football side of things too. He knows a hell of a lot about Chelsea. Gets a little sentimental while I'm a bit more ruthless, but for the most part I'd say I agree a lot with what he has to say, he can also speak in depth too.
    I'd go.
    Tier 1.Louis/SUG/Nickini
    2. Fizzel/Zerforax.
    Rest aren't really worth mentioning. Although I may have forgotten somebody.

    Who has given the most boring member's interview thus far? Dirty Bit. I read 2 answers then proceeded to go onto another thread.

    Arsene Wenger is a specialist in failure. Discuss.
    He's done a fantastic job funding a 400M pound stadium and does a lot for the club behind the scenes. I feel like he struggles to instill a winning mentality in the players, but I feel that mentally the manager isn't fully responsible for your mental deficiencies. I feel like Wenger tries to go cheap and he struggles to get a mentally resilient team because of it. He showed with the early Arsenal sides that with a team that are switched on mentally(Viera/Henry/Bergkamp) that have players who know they are good and fear nobody he can get them to a top level. Even now he has instilled that mentality a bit. But his real issue was not getting cover for Coquelin in time and not buying a top quality forward to supplement Sanchez.

    Who will win the CL, PL, FA Cup and Euro 2016?
    CL: PSG
    PL: Leicester
    FA Cup: United
    Euro 2016: France

    What sports do you watch, other than football? And which sports do you have no time for? Basketball, UFC, Tennis. I have no time for Cricket.

    You can have five celebrities over for dinner. Who do you pick? Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Nas, Obama, Kendrick Lamar.

    Who should I interview next? SUG.

    Lastly, jam. Do you believe in God? Not really, will go into this properly when you post the thread.

    What's the answer to the ketchup question - In or out?

    Do you think owners like Roman and the Sheiks are good or bad for the game?

    Are/were the FFP rules flawed or were they created to stop any other clubs flush with new money from gatecrashing the established status quo?

    Are you for/against a European Super League?

    Should anything be done to address current player power?

    Which current Chelsea players would you hate if they played for another team and you didn't have loyalty towards them?

    Did the Luis Garcia goal cross the line?

    Always in the fridge ffs. I don't like ketchup anyway, you can get bbq sauce/chilli sauce/mustard so why settle for less.

    Roman and the Shieks are good for the game, beats having Barcelona dominating the game even more than they currently do and Fiorentino dominating too.

    FFP rules are clearly flawed as people circumvent the rules in various ways, even if they did not circumvent the rules, again two clubs make so much money without the need of some arabian guy pumping up their money into the club.

    The super league should only happen once every 4 years.

    Nothing should be done to address player power, the managers job is to avoid player power getting out of hand, so why make their lives easier. It's part and parcel of the job and you're paid millions of pounds a year in order to do that.

    It clearly did not cross the line but you'd argue Liverpool would have got a penalty anyway and possibly face Chelsea with 10 men so swings and roundabouts. Still a pisstake though.

    Also that award clearly goes to Fabregas. He's a bit of a prick for what he did to Arsenal but I'm not complaining.

    I was with you until after that first sentence. Ketchup is the best condiment there is :mad: Don't like BBQ/mustard. Happy with chilli sauce/garlic mayo though.

    Wouldn't it be great if every club had exactly the same budget to spend? Barcelona not really dominating due to their money though? More to do with all these great players they've produced/stolen in recent years.

    I like that you're coming around to my super league every 4 years idea (not that I invented it )

    Tbh maybe we just need to do something with the idiotic press. They definitely flame every potential fire they can.. what do you reckon will be this summer's transfer saga?

    Fabregas the only player? I would've at least expected John Terry in any list.

    Y u no pay attention at the time? Pretty sure you were a regular poster in those days.

    I don't want to name and shame anyone but suffice it to say you can expect at any meetup of people from a message board, about 50% of them are NOT normal people. Many of them are mentally ill, which is not necessarily a problem ofc. But then you mix in that some of them are drug addicts, violent, or sexual predators (either young or old), and you end up with at least a few of them being really unpleasant people.

    One particular event that springs to mind is when a group of tsr's (some from this subsection) went on a trip to France together to someone's holiday home (I think). While they were there they got drunk, and one person in particular was very dangerous and unstable when under the influence of alcohol. He is a well known former TSR mod, if you've been around for long enough. He went crazy and tried to seriously hurt another person, and in the end got hurt himself really badly and spent a lot of time in hospital.

    They had already met many times for meetups, and there were a whole load of sleepovers in those days after meets/people visiting each other at each others uni's. Although its possible a few of them only knew some of them through some of the other people going.

    Actually quite a few TSR trips abroad happened, at least a half dozen that I was aware of, probably quite a lot more that I wasn't.

    Tl;dr stranger danger is not a joke, don't trust anyone on tsr until you have known them for a long time. if something seems amiss with someone its not just you being paranoid.

    I never got involved with the social stuff. I just thought people used to meet up to play footie. Or do you mean general TSR meet-ups? I can imagine that having a few weirdos..

    Nope, talking primarily about football people. In fact, the people that came from the other subsections were usually the normal ones now that I think about it.

    And yes, the meets were a day of footie, followed by pub, often followed by going to someone's house/flat and continuing on often for the entire weekend or more.

    Many people made very good friendships through TSR in those days to be fair, and its not like every meetup involved some guy trying to force himself on some unfortunate girl.

    Terry is a great player regardless of his issues. Same with Suárez. In all honesty that racism comments for both of them, I don't think either of the players are racists. Cheating with a girl is something I don't really care about even if it's your team mate. However if it is with your brothers wife that is disgusting on all kinds of moral levels. River85

    Yeah the press are a joke but I think realistically things should be done with false reporting. The press should lose money for poor reporting and there should be more regulations there. But player power in general is part and parcel of the job. I don't know what happens behind closed doors.

    Hazard to PSG will be the summer's transfer saga along with Pogba to City/Barcelona. Gundogan to Man City/Barcelona another option.

    True. There are some ****ing weirdos on the site, speaking with a member from FF who has been to an actual meetup they've told me that people are weird as ****(I don't venture out of this part of the site). Miel Purple has already been perm banned though so I just found the most likely person I'd get rid of otherwise(plus I wanted to see his reaction).

    But if we're talking FF can't think of current members I would ban. In all honesty everybody is cool on this forum.

    If we were to talk about this. Outside of the open TSR forum(which I have communicated with SUG and other members about). I did have Liverpool to come top 3 and believed that Chelsea and City would come top spot. So in all honesty the Liverpool prediction was wrong. But not to the level you are trying to make it out to be.

    This entire premier league season is unpredictable as hell, so I guess all of us can get slack, people were saying City would win with ease and they probably will miss out on top 4 at this rate. I had Arsenal or Chelsea.

    In all honesty you've just been salty because I've been anti-Mourinho because I realised he was quickly becoming a cancer to the club which has proven to be true, since Xmas Chelsea have been top 2/3 quality easily.

    Also Jon Fearn been reinstated to the bench? What do you have to say about this? Was Mourinho right to get rid of both of them.

    I'd like Mackay to interview Shed End after SUG.

    This is probably something to discuss in the Chelsea thread, but have we really? I would say since Hiddink came in we are playing something akin to a top 5 club who would have a good shot at CL, but not top 2/3 'easily'.

    Only Spurs and Leicester have really impressed since Xmas imo.

    Up until last week Chelsea had the highest amount of points this calendar year in the premier league and currently are on the longest unbeaten run this season. Therefore you can easily argue that point.

    Had Mourinho gone in October Chelsea would probably be between the manchester clubs/Arsenal's position right now.

    EDIT: 3rd in the table, point behind Leicester and Spurs.
