Chelsea fans comments before Newcastle match just leave you shaking your head

Chelsea fans with some ‘interesting’ comments ahead of playing Newcastle on Sunday afternoon.

Many of them proving it isn’t just Arsenal supporters who have such a massive sense of entitlement.

You would think when reading what many of them had to say, that they had just experienced the most disastrous season ever.

Not one in which they have competed in the Champions League, still in with a chance of top four but fifth at worst.

Then the small matter of an FA Cup final to look forward to next Saturday and the fact they are the Premier League form team, with four wins in their last five matches.

Plus the small matter of actually winning the Premier League only 12 months ago, with this same manager and most of the same players.

The comments even range as far as not even bothering watching today’s game on TV, yes they are unlikely to get that fourth Champions League place but stranger things have happened.

You just wonder what many fans of clubs like Arsenal and Chelsea would be like if they were stuck in the bottom half of the Premier League season after season, or worse. Probably end up ‘supporting’ Man Utd or whoever else was delivering regular success…

Comments taken from various Chelsea message boards (Talk Chelsea, Shed End, CFC Net):

‘I’m going to give this one a miss. The last realistic shot at finishing in the top four was at home against Spurs and we were deservedly beaten.

A fitting end to a very disappointing league campaign. Both the manager and the players should hang their heads in shame.’

‘Liverpool are not Losing at home to Brighton. This is a dead rubber, play some of the kids.’

‘I hope he rests every single player he intends to start vs [Man] United

But he wont, we know he will play the team he should of started with yesterday [v Huddersfield], you know just in case a crucial player could get injured or a red card.’

‘I have to admit that a tiny part of my brain is wondering why I even bother…’

‘I’m anticipating the 12 hour round trip in the car to be the highlight of my Sunday…’

‘Hard game to call this.

Conte could play some of the kids but, knowing how dogmatic he is with his starting line up, it wouldn’t surprise me if he went with exactly the same team that started against Huddersfield, just to prove a point.’

‘If the footballing gods are looking down on us tomorrow it’s champions league for us next season.’

‘Have to take our chance and fight till the end, it’s not inconceivable for us to make it tomorrow but chances will be even lower if we don’t take it seriously.’

‘According to Lawrenson on football focus, Pool are struggling with a lot unfit players yet Brighton might not have much to play for except pride.

Us on the other hand with players somewhat annoyed by Conte’s selection for the last match makes it hard to judge how they will play.

We do have a final next weekend yet Conte is know to make some strange selections.’

‘I’d rather play the UEL next season and have a real chance of winning our 6th european trophy (which will see us only within 2 titles from Manure in terms of european and intl success) than hoping for a win from the seagulls and have a s*****y team next season in the UCL and be eliminated after the R16 !!! Plus, a european trophy will bring talents and help us build a strong team for the UCL! look at dippers for instance … they played the UEL 2016 final and now are in the UCL final !’

‘Made the mistake of telling SWMBO I wasn’t that bothered about this game, now she wants to go out for the afternoon.

Dont think she quite understood the difference between not bothered and not watching.’

‘If I remember, we have an awful record there.

But would be sod’s law Liverpool somehow end up with a shock loss to Brighton and we stuff up at Newcastle. Ugh.’

‘Can see TFSW using the match as an application for being Conte’s replacement

Remember this is Chelsea Football Club.’

‘If it’s the hope that kills you, and it is, then I’m still going to be alive come Monday.

I have absolutely no belief tomorrow will go the way we need. I wouldn’t be surprised if Liverpool win and we lose.

I hope he plays a strong team, but it’s a game too late unfortunately.’

‘We have dropped so many stupid points this season and for it to come down to this and for us to blame anyone other than ourselves is pathetic. We will achieve precisely what we have earned this season. Comparative mediocrity.

I fully expect us to win and for Liverpool to break our hearts in the 6th minute of added on time.’

‘Play whoever… We have a FA cup to win.. Or lose…’

‘1 more game and it’s over finally.’

‘Newcastle will beat us here, we hate going to SJP.’

‘To be honest, think we’re a long way off a CL winning team atm.

I don’t see the point in qualifying for a competition you’ve no chance of winning.

Ending up in the CL just to get beaten in the first knockout stage every year like Arsenal used to, doesn’t appeal to me. Would much rather give the Europa a proper bash next season.’

‘Give some youngsters a chance from the start and put others on the bench. They deserve it after a great season.

Hudson-Odoi and Sterling in starting eleven, Chalobah, McCormick, Grant, Maddox and Redan on the bench.’

‘Sky most be gutted that the only final day drama is us and Liverpool and that’s drama with a small D because they are going to slaughter Brighton who will be so on the beach they might as well come out wearing flip flops and sunglasses.

One really worrying thing for me is that Spurs have come higher than us in 3 out of the last six seasons. I know they’ve won f… all but that could be the norm for the next few seasons .’

‘We’re rubbish at Newcastle so dropping points probably a given. Be hilllarious if did pull if off though.. Surprise!!!

Not that we deserve it and probably way better off in Europa but would be fun.’

‘When we played this lot in 2007 it was probably the most boring game I’ve ever seen, it was 0-0 and I struggled to stay awake and I was in the pub.

We really have a p… poor record up there and this has draw written all over it.’

‘After the last week’s game lets hope the lads felt suitably embarrased by their poor performance and would like to do summet to show they can actually f… up teams of this caliber.

Lets give the fat Spanish waiter a good sending off.’
