The London rivalry between Chelsea and West Ham supporters continued on Monday night. Over many years West Ham fans have sung about Chelsea’s lack of history, about their found new plastic fans and about where the thousands of glory hunting fans were when they were rubbish in their wilderness years.
Last October’s game against them in the EFL Cup was one of best if not the best atmosphere’s in the London Stadium and again we sang the old classics to them including where to stick their blue flag.
However, Monday night was different, the atmosphere from home fans was more subdued and the away fans had the upper hand from noise and the banter on this occasion.
It was Chelsea fans questioning West Ham’s new home and suggesting we have sold our soul to move into our new home.
Chelsea fans chanted “You’re not West Ham anymore” and “You sold your soul for this s#*thole”
They also mocked the number of empty seats by chanting ‘They’re here, they’re there, they’re every-f**king-where, empty seats, empty seats..’
Yeah, they also taunted ‘Champions of Europe… you’ll never sing that song’. So what? It’s true. They could equally have taunted ‘Champions of England’ or ‘Best Team in London.. you’ll never sing that song’. Not sure what point is being made here? Do we care what they said? No more than they do when we call them Chelski and point out that they are now rich and good when, for a long time previously, they were neither. They don’t blub when we taunt them. I expect other clubs will sing something similar to us this season… might even call us ‘pikeys’! Does it warrant comment? Nah!
I can’t help but agree with their comments, and the fact that the stadium has won an award is like appointing tony blair as the peace envoy to the middle east…oh hang on.
Who cares what Chelsea fans sang.What did we expect,they were going to sing complimentary songs about us,our team or the stadium lol
Too many of you worry about things that really just aint important lol
They also sang for Mikhail Antonio which was very sporting of them! I can’t really knock them about the empty seats, I’m amazed that people leave early,especially when we played decently imo. citeh was even worse, with loads leaving at half time. As far as being a Pikey, well we are the only prem team to live in a council house with the biggest flat screen in Europe and when the naming rights are sold we should even get some housing benefit!
Like I care what Chelsea fans sing, we have our own fans saying worse! Anyhow, we give as good as we get at Stamford Bridge.
