We Don`t Like Chelsea!

We Don`t Like Chelsea!

It had to be done, I just couldn`t resist it. I just had to know if you shared my feelings or was I simply alone in my own little paranoid world?

Therefore, posting the poll - Which London Premiership Club Do You Dislike the Most?" just had to be done.

Since the unfortunate demise, from top flight football, of Charlton Athletic and Crystal Palace, the top flight only contains, apart from us, four other London teams - Chelsea, West Ham United, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

Mercifully, you proved that I`m not in my own insular world; a massive majority of you also have a strong dislike for our neighbours in the poorer, dilapidated parts of the borough - Chelsea.

Don`t listen to your older brothers, fathers and even grandparents who'll tell you about the days they used to frequent Stamford Bridge one Saturday and Craven Cottage the next, times have moved on. There is now an intense rivalry between us.

Anyone who witnessed the remarkable scenes when they were routed 1-0 at Craven Cottage in 2005-2006 will vouch for that. Mass hysteria! The festive break last season also saw us put a dent in their title ambitions when we snatched a fully deserved draw, it was marvellous.

So what is it about Chelsea we dislike?

Their wealth, their arrogance, their supporters, you tell me before I commit slander.

For the record, the results finished as shown below,

Chelsea - 48%

Arsenal - 17%

Spurs - 15%

West Ham - 20%

All disliked but not on the scale of Chelsea. I sense peace of mind at last!

Oh bless, we don't hate you down at the Bridge. We like to think of you as our poorer cousins. A little annoying at times, but largely harmless.

“There is now an intense rivalry between us” Errr….. No there isn’t. An intense rivalry requires both teams to dislike/compete with each other. You register about the same as Wigan on our ‘rivals’ landscape.
