Hello Chelsea Fans

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just wanted to say Hi and give my story on how I came to support Chelsea.  My history with Chelsea goes back to 1997. It was the first time I came to London from the continent to study English. My school was on Munster road and every day on my way to school I would walk past Stamford Bridge. It was a different Stamford Bridge back then than it is now. On the weekday evening matches there were people sitting on the actual bridge on Fulham road above the rail tracks. Sometimes I was one of them too. At that time, you could actually see a part of the North side of the pitch.  Those were the days of Ruud Gullit, Gianluca Vialli, Tore André Flo, Dennis Wise, Roberto Di Matteo and Gianfranco Zola.  Gianfranco Zola was an absolutely mesmerizing player to watch. One of those underappreciated geniuses.
I think it’s the magic of Gianfranco Zola and also living and studying in the proximity at the time got me to supporting Chelsea.
