Childhood Chelsea Fans Within the Squad

Recommended Posts

Having been asked that question on another forum, it actually made me think. Do we have any lifelong Chelsea fans in our squad?

I assume we can rule out the non-English boys, and I honestly don't have a clue about our youngsters, but:

Joe Cole - Although he said he loves the club now, aren't there pictures of him as a kid in a y*ds shirt? :S

John Terry - I remember hearing he supported Man Ure as a kid.

Ashley Cole - I assume he supported Arsenal?

Frank Lampard - Ditto, but West Ham

Ross Turnbull - Ditto, but Boro

Daniel Sturridge - Ditto, but Citeh

Can anyone shed any light?

I still think Jon Harley would have been a brilliant player, but I seem to remember him getting so much abuse from Gus Poyet on the pitch it probably killed his self confidence.

I too remember an interview with Joe where he said he has been a Chelsea fan as a kid and is now happy to play for the club he already loved as a child.

I was on holiday in San Diego this summer, with my two boys in their Chelsea shirts. We went into a shop where the sales assistant was thrilled to meet some real CFC fans. He was an English guy who went to school with Joe Cole and played in the same school side as him. He confirmed that JC was a childhood Chelsea fan.

I remember that almost every time Harley played for Chelsea, if one of his passes or crosses went astray, Poyet would shout and scream at him. Harley was very young and just breaking into the team, and his confidence must have been shattered to be humiliated like that in front of his home crowd by a so-called team-mate. I hated Poyet from the first time I saw him do that, and wasn't surprised when he kissed the Spuds badge - the man's a c*nt.

That is really messed up, and makes me think that confidence is so important for young players 'making it'.

Obviously he isnt in our squad...but I believe Peter Crouch used to go to the bridge with his parents, who were ST holders. Of course, now he plays for 'them'

What about that Ressies keeper we had a few seasons back, think we loaned him out to Wimbledon or Watford. Young fella, loved Chelsea, and always got stick when he was on loan because of his Chelsea Tattoo

Lenny Pidgeley?
