I’m a little bit confused this morning. I went to a local pub to watch the game last night. It wasn’t particularly busy but more than average for a week night. As far as I could see, there wasn’t anyone wearing a Spurs shirt, but there were a good few patrons in Chelsea colours.
I didn’t think much of it but once the match got underway, it became clear they were all staunch Werder Bremen supporters for the night. It wasn’t just cheering and booing from this crowd though, there was actually screeching accompanying each Werder chance as though they had just climaxed.
There are a few teams I don’t particularly like, but I’d never go out with the sole intention of supporting another team for the night because of it. All I’ve been hearing from Chelsea supporters for the last few weeks is how Tottenham won’t be able to cut it in the Champions League and we will be dumped out in the group stages. Well if that’s the case, I don’t understand the need for them to get so excited when Spurs are playing.
Admittedly, a few of these boys were holding hands and also having a bit of a kiss when they thought nobody else was looking. One of them even had a Gok Wan rocks my world t-shirt on. If I could be sure this was a meeting of Chelsea’s homosexual supporters community, then I’d be a little more understanding. I know they have a large gay following and on a personal level, the luck I have with women, I’m starting to see the appeal. Obviously taking their shoes off at West Ham last weekend was some kind of fashion statement.
The Champions League is the one thing Abramovich’s money hasn’t been able to buy yet. Maybe the reason Chelsea supporters are so upset about Tottenham being in the Champions League is because we have a habit of beating them. I’m sure watching us come away with a point against one of the best sides Germany has to offer won’t have done much to make them feel better…
