Chelsea coat was honest mistake says steward


ChelseaCoatAn investigation into a report that a London Stadium steward wore a Chelsea football coat  on Wednesday night has claimed it was an honest mistake by the female steward.

The steward was photographed wearing the Chelsea coat under her yellow high visibility steward jacket but the stewarding company insist she is not a  Chelsea fan and only bought the coat from Sports Direct because it was cheap.

The steward was blissfuly unaware of the implications and upset it could cause to rival West Ham fans and has apologised for her actions. Her photo went viral on social media on Wednesday night after she was spotted on duty close to the away fans.

ClaretandHugh have been told that all London Stadium stewards have since been told not to report for work with any other club’s merchandise.

Supporters are encouraged to report any breach of this rule on the day/night of the match so any potential future infringement could be quickly tacked on the day.

    You have to be incredibly stupid not to realise that wearing the colours of a one club while working at the home of major rivals, from the same city, is not appropriate. It should make someone wonder whether this person has the basic intelligence to be doing this job. The alternative view is that the steward was being deliberately provocative which should also preclude someone from doing the job.

    Such is life.More to the point how good did Snodgrass look yesterday.He is going to be a great additon to the team.Not bad for a useless Championship level signing according to some 😝😀

  • Gaz says:

    Fonte and Snodgrass were smashing signings.Fonte will be very influential in defence & Snodgrass has a complete game.Does the dirty work as well as the creative.It astonished me fans were disparaging about these signings.One can only assume they either dont watch much football or are rugby supporters as their first choice sport to follow.

  • John says:

    Yeah right of course she didn’t know. The stupid mare.

    Fonte and Reid looked the real deal and Snodgrass just the sort of signing we needed. He’s gonna be a fans favourite. Onwards and upwards hopefully the haters will hate a little less for the next week at least.

    Bad day for some first we play brilliant and new signings look made to measure,
    Then Hippo respected the point again
    Obiang looks World class just what we need,
    Kouyate looked as good at RB as any I have seen if he is happy there getting up top at times plus looking safe defending why look any further,
    Love the movement up top as well we worked as a unit and looked top 7 quality with plenty left on the bench
    Attack Attack 9 points more

    This just goes to show the level of intelligence the stewards have!!! I wish we could get the old Boleyn people back but I know that ship has sailed.

  • ChrisTheHammer says:

    She either knew or is incompetent and I don’t know which is worse, I hate to say it as it’s someone’s job but after all the problems with stewarding perhaps it’s best to part ways with her
