Chelsea fans are looking up with raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear the news coming from the Telegraph, who claim that the Blues have banned all fun and banter from the training ground.
The Blues are currently struggling to get a win or goal from pretty much anywhere, and as one of our punters notes, we are not sure getting rid of laughter and fun from the training ground is the way to go.
After our landlord heard that the defending Premier League champions had effectively outlawed fun, he made the point that we think a bit of light heartedness could be a good thing for the club in such times of trouble, and that they need a couple of jokes around the place to lighten the doom and gloom of their relegation battle!
A few Chelsea fans enjoying a pint over by the pool table here in the Tavern simply cannot believe this news, and are quite simply bemused and baffled!
Chelsea fans. Is getting rid of banter a mistake? Let us know your thoughts below!
