Home Support

Eton Blue at the Chelsea Megastore

Recommended Posts

I'm initiating this topic because I'm not so impressed with home supporting!

Watching on tv I have feeling that whole stadium are not involved in supporting.

Like the support comes only from Matthew Harding Stand.

(I think that those same fans go on away games!)

I think that whole stadium have to support, sing or be involved in any kind of supporting!

Whole stadium only sing „COME ON CHELSEA“ and that is repeated for five or six times, and that's it!

(That is impression watching on tv.)

THAT IS NOT ENOUGH !!!

There should be more singing and supporting!

Whole stadium should sing songs for our legends! (Lampard, Drogba, Terry and others)

There should be more insulting and other kind of distracts of opponent players.

There should be more banners too. My suggestion for one is „THE FUTURE IS OURS“

There should be some insulting banners for every big rival.

Player should be carried on songs all the time all the way!

Fans on stadium don't know how lucky are they to have that opportunity to watch Chelsea on Stamford Bridge ! I'm far away from London and England but if I had that chance to watch and support Chelsea on Stamford Bridge I would make brake only to take a breath !

Greeting to all Chelsea fans!

COME ON CHELSEA !

The Shed and MH stands both sing.

All the players you have mentioned have songs and are sung every game.

You're not allowed to have insulting banners in England, the closest you'll get is 'Pride of London'

Like you've said you don't go to games so you can't insult the support because that's the finest bit of irony I'll ever see.

I feel as a supporter the home games are littered with many foreign supporters which do not help the cause

I know that those players have songs and I know that Shed and MH are singing but it's only about 50% supporters on stadium and it's very sad that East and West Stand are very quiet!

I didn't expressed well!

I didn't mean really insulting but something just to provoke a little!

I think that THE FUTURE IS OURS is good :) or maybe someone have something better.

It's very sad when you hear silence on stadium for several minutes and you can hear players how they talk to each other, like on training.

They need strong suport !

It's not the same if 20 or 40 thousand sing or yell something!

It's pure psychology. Players are flying when they feel that all stadium is with them!

FROM PAST TO ETERNITY!

COME ON CHELSEA !

I hate sitting in East Stand, West Stand even moreso. I was furious when my Dad told me there was a Spurs fan jumping up and celebrating when they scored against us last season. If that happened in the Shed End, MH or even parts of East Stand that guy would have been lucky to make it out alive for sure. My Gooner cousin told me a similar thing happened when they played Spurs in that 4-4 and the Spurs fan got his head kicked in, not that I would advocate violence but thats the way it should be IMO.

I can honestly say I don't enjoy home games anymore unless it is against Arsenal or United, to a lesser extent Spurs and Liverpool, but for those kind of games I'm a bundle of nerves. Away games are the way forward. Win or lose I always find it a good day out, result only matters for London aways as far as I'm concerned. Everyone sings in away games and win or lose they back the players 100%. There is none of this Ramires, Kalou, Mikel and Anelka (even though I'm not his biggest fan) bashing as I have often heard in the Shed End and MH Lower.

East and West Stands = Spectators

MH and Shed End = Football Supporters

Generally speaking thats how it is at the Bridge these days.

That's what I'm talking about!

I hate spectators. It's ok for VIP but for rest of supporters It's not ok!

Golf, chess, curling or something similar is for spectators. Football is passionate game! You need strength even for supporting !

Shed and MH have to initiate and wake up east and west stand.

Away support is very good! I'm proud on those fans!

As for those Spurs fans on west stand, I'm against violence but if they would be rude then others have to be rude to them! (Insult or two would be ok ;) )

I want that blood in players veins start to boiling when 40 thousand fans start to sing and support them!

In my experience Bridge isn't that bad... East stand being spectators (lower anyway) isn't entirely true. Lower is the family section and gereally full of old school Dads and their kids who all generally get involved. Women of course shouldn't be allowed :Whistle: ... ;-)

Football supporters in England have changed and I think from Bosnia you probably don't fully appreciate this, football is now a family event (women and children are encouraged) and also a tourist attraction - if you were in London on holiday you'd be encouraged to come to a game (paying stupid prices for the pleasure). These things have meant a decline in atmospheres at grounds, it's a good thing if fans that want to chant can get together in specific areas of the ground so that they can be together and make as much noise as they want to.

However it's not fair to criticise a fan that doesn't chant, one of my best friends and his entire family are Chelsea mad, his dad and grandad has season tickets in the East stand - he took his grandad's over when he couldn't go any more, they follow the club home and away and feel it as much as anyone. But they don't chant! So what, they like that other fans do and they are mentally as involved as anyone else in the ground.

Atmosphere's at grounds is crap these days but it's not right to just criticise the fans that don't make much noise, it's more to do with the number of people that don't really care that are in the grounds.

I didn't mean everyone just generally speaking. I've sat in every part of the Bridge except for Shed Upper I think and thats what I find, I often sit in East Stand simply for convenience and these days price

I don't mean chant, I'll be very honest I rarely chant at home games myself, but just getting behind the team. I don't doubt any fan's commitment (after all they are forking out huge money) but the team needs our support just as much as we need theirs and the sarcastic applauding and ridiculing of players doesn't help.

Every crowd is different, there are some that act and some that react. Places like Goodison and to a lesser extent Anfield will roar the team on irrespective of what is going on, I would say SB at times and the Emirates react depending on how well the team are doing. When we were beating United at SB last year that was as good as I've heard the Bridge in terms of atmosphere in some while, the whole place just lifted after the goal given our horrendous run at the time, even United and Arsenal fans I know that were watching on Sky were quick to mention how good the atmosphere was that night, I felt the same way with the Emirates last year. Arsenal fans were very cagey going into the game (and rightly so given their recent record against us) but when they started to get on top of us again that was the loudest and most vocal I have ever heard Arsenal fans.

An excellent article. I wish I knew how to do the link thing that posts it on the page, so that people who don;t bother clicking the link can see it. It sums up perfectly why it is totally unacceptable to boo your team.

This little gem popped up on newsnow a few minutes ago. Sums up the feelings of many supporters I'd suggest:

http://www.cleanshee...ngs-at-chelsea?

Thank you! ::clap2::

Quote -

Because unlike you, they are there to support the players. They’re not there to settle back for an afternoon’s entertainment. They wouldn’t even think of risking the morale of players or the performance of the team by behaving in such an unreasonably immature and irresponsible way. They will try to be the 12th man.

Leave your seat available for someone who will support the players, the team and the club – when they need it most. On the pitch during a game.

We are all Chelsea. If you are a true Chelsea supporter you have a right to express your feelings. But during those ninety minutes you have an obligation, too: an obligation that outweighs your individual right.

As a Chelsea supporter you have an obligation to support.

So please, do us all a favour. If you want to boo, go to a pantomime.

Very well said !!

Its a bit weird to proclaim a obligation to chant for everyone that buys a ticket.

Such an obligation would mean that you cant watch any game that doesnt include Chelsea, and surely this would be plain weird.

You arent a better supporter of your team if you chant and praise every player + management twice every day. Its weird for me where this feeling of superiority of some people comes from.

People not chanting is fine, not everyone feels the need to or even has the confidence to stand up and sing. People booing on the other hand which I even heard loud and clear over ESPN's coverage and was widely reported in the press is disgraceful. There's plenty of fans out there who would kill to be able to go see that team play every week whether they batter a team 6-0 nil or are humiliated by the travelling team, if you're not satisfied with the performance of player or the team keep it till the pub frankly.

Its sh*t like this that makes it hard to defend following this club, we're in danger of ending up like sodding Arsenal for gods sake.

Right on the money there mate. Incidentally, I go away 3/4 times a year when I can, and I also happen to sit in the West Upper at home because my good mate's family have a few season tickets there. As far as the experience goes, being away is unbeatable because I like to chant etc, but on the other hand when I go the Bridge I'm treated to a pretty spectacular view. Got to say though I hate most of the people up there, too many stiffs with no real interest in what's going on. It's only when we play Tottenham that there's any atmosphere in the WU.

Fair point too there. A lot of what is chanted is pretty anti-semitic and English Nationalist and you can't expect people who don't hold those values to participate.

Nevertheless, is it really that much to ask for someone to say "Chelsea, Chelsea, Chelsea" every once in a while?

I prefer straight talk.The very fact that we CAN lift the lid off of SB, v united, spurs,n arsenal, shows our fans can be lazy bar stewards v the rest..Yes we are too cosmopolitan nowadays..Too many new fans in the last decade.Sorry to say too many hangers on to the new WINNING chelsea team.Too many of the wealthier types that sit around, observing, as some have said,able to belong to a now so called,affluant club.I feel sorry for the guys n gals that were there week after week thru all weathers and cant go now.These true blues who have been forced to make way for the boring f**kers that call themselves chelsea fans.Ive said it b4 but i really envy, well, i was gonna say spurs atmosphere and their fans efforts at all matches.(but) id have to say every clubs fans passion and efforts. Not everyone wants to sing, but this club is doingwell on the footy side. We have a lovely ground but without the first class noise this ground should produce.

Eh?? this isn't my experience at all we go to most home games and it's basic football songs - carefree, double double, one man went to mow, cause nth London is full of sh*t, etc, etc, etc with a few others thrown in, what's nationalist and anti-semitic about that... The odd y*d is by and by and we've already had discussion about that in previous threads

I appreciate English style of supporting and wish that at least one bit of that is in Bosnia, but it's not :sad:

I love to see whole family on stadium but it's more lovely to see them sing or just shouting come on, let's go, harder, shoot, watch back :) or anything else what's the part of supporting!

They don't need to chant all the time. It's enough 3 or 4 times during the game that whole stadium chant, that players see whole stadium is behind them!

Supporting the team only when they play good is like being with your woman only when she give to you :biggrin: then that is not supporting and she's more like mistress :smile:

I think you are right about that there are many who don't really care about Chelsea and they are there just to see new big signings or something similar. :sad:

And just one thing about booing. I hate when "fans" do that, especially on the start of new season with new manager who begun to create something new!

But if there is some player who don't give all he can (like he don't run after ball that he might catch or he is more mannequin then football player) then I think he deserve to be boo at.

It's not shame to lose, it's shame not to give all you can or to give over! That's for losers

Good posts sufi!

I despise our home support. Useless, spoilt w**kers. I despair when I realise there are plenty of Chelsea fans both in England and abroad who would jump at the chance to sing for the team for 90 minutes, but due to cost will never have that oppotunity.
