This is from the excellent Three and in. I’d appreciate the thoughts and views of Tavern readers…
‘A very quick one and one that will hopefully be picked up on by some Chelsea fans. Would love their thoughts on this.
As the half-time whistle went yesterday Chelsea went in 1-0 down and left the pitch to a chorus of boos. Sure, they didn’t play at all well, almost unrecognisable from the team we’re used to seeing, but isn’t it a bit much to direct that kind of ire at a team who have been so dominant at home for so long?
Onuoha’s goal was the first they’d conceded at home in the league this season yet there was no appreciation of that outstanding record, merely a disapproval that the goal had been conceded.
I realise teams set their own standards and Chelsea’s have been very high indeed but shouldn’t there be more understanding from fans who are there not just to be entertained and to enjoy the good stuff but to support their team when things go badly too? The boos were probably more related to the performance than the goal itself but still.
It’s not just a problem for Chelsea, I don’t mean to single them out, but I just found it extraordinary that after such an incredible defensive record the team was booed for letting in one goal during one bad 45 minutes of football.’
So Chelsea, what’s occurring?
