Chelsea And The Media Again !

Recommended Posts

Okay this mornings big football stories are :

1. Can Gerrard and Lamps Play together again .. yawn yawn ........... (Of course they F****** can end of story)

and 2. .. The Credit Crunch it's effect on football... A lot of people say to us that we are always complaining that Chelsea do not get a fair treatment in the media and that the football establishment is against us.

Well I watch 3 separate news channels this morning and when it came to the subject of football and money, the back drop was a Chelsea player... Then I went onto a couple of football sites as well, and guess what.. headline stories about salary caps and everything to do with Credit Crunch ... guess what the accompanying picture was again.

It reminds me of very much the 70's/early 80's.. if there was a news story about football hooligans, they would drag up old library pictures of Chelsea fans rioting !

Maybe I am paranoid and they just catch my eye because it is Chelsea players but I dont think so.

or you might say, should I really care ?

It's even worse than that. All too frequently, for news items on hooliganism both BBC and ITV would drag out footage of the relegation battle at 3 point lane, with Chelsea supporters vastly outnumbered and getting kicked to f**k on the pitch, because most of us didn't get in - and this would be reported as yet another example of disgraceful behaviour by Chelsea fans.

That there was a riot down T*tt*nh*m High Road and T*tt*nh*m got battered after the game is besides the point.

That is so true, really f*ckin' annoys me! A few hundred Chelsea fans got in the ground and were battered by the ever cowardly Tottenham fans who outnumbered them at least twenty to one. I was one of the thousands of Chelsea fans who couldn't get in the ground that day, but as you say, we kicked the f*ck out of 'em after the game. Happy memories of the true story at least ;)

What's really unbelievable about the TV clip - the one they always used to show, is that there was one Chelsea fan being kicked all over the place by half a dozen or so scumbags who were clearly wearing dark blue T*tt*nh*m scarves. And yet as ever, it was Chelsea fans that got the blame.

I was one of the few who did get in .. because I sneaked to the front of the queue outside whichever end it was. Confusing is putting it mildly. We all spilled on to the pitch before the game, not really knowing who was who - I swear you had Chelsea fighting Chelsea and Y*ds fighting Y*ds. Not knowing what the f**k was happening, I watched most of it going off sitting on the trainers bench. Then Old Bill escorted me into the Shelf, and from there I made my way round to the Park Lane. Or maybe it was the Paxton.

Either way, that day and it's repercussions are just one more reason for hating T*tt*nh*m.

I know the clip you mean, and it's true, Chelsea got the blame (as usual). I used to enjoy going to WHL as it was always lively, but you had to be careful not to get seperated from your mates, as the N17 scum were experts at picking off lone away fans. That was another reason I always hated them, they were the most cowardly mob in the country in my opinion. They could never decide on which was their home end either - one season it was the Park Lane, the next it was the Paxton, after that The Shelf - very confusing!

Some people who watch old clips from WHL in the early 70's may wonder why the terracing behind the Park Lane goal was pulled back to create a bigger gap - the reason? Spuds fans threw a dart at an opposing goalkeeper, I still remember the pictures in the papers the next day of the keeper being helped off the pitch with a dart sticking out of his head. C*nts!

Mind you, they weren't alone in this kind of thing - most northern clubs used to throw darts, bricks, bottles, and all kinds at away fans, and the police never did anything to stop it. Seen it at Middlesbrough, Leeds, Sheff.Utd, Sheff.Utd, Man.City & even Huddersfield - yet we always got the blame.

its because theres nothing wrong at the moment with chelsea

we didnt spend hundreds of millions in pre-season, scolari is a gent and they cant pick fault there, the team is doing well on the pitch thry cant pick much fault there either

the media had to write so much nice on monday after we did villa, all the editors of the press are just trying to remind the readers and viewers just how bad chelsea are

i'm sure some little sun journalist is currently trying to find a link between the current collapse of the stock markets and a mr r abramovich to but the blame soley at his feet
