Chelsea Balls: Blues Ban Fan For Being Annoying

by | 3rd, May 2014

CHELSEA fan  Connor  is banned from Stamford Bridge. Why? What did he do? Is he a hooligan, a Headhunter ? Did he call someone a “ fu*king black cu*t “? No. That doesn’t get you a stadium ban. That just gets you banned from going on the pitch during the game.

No. What Connor did was to engage is ‘Persistent Standing’.

He is guilty of what police, Government and everyone who hates football calls “anti-social behaviour”. He is guilty of displaying passion.

Oh, of course, the illiberal elite have told us that standing at football matches leads to another Hillsborough. That’s utter balls. It was this same illiberal elite treating the fans worse than animals that led to the deaths of 96 fans in 1989. The dead were, in the words of the Sunday Times , slum people watching a slum sport”. And you can die at all-seater stadia, as many did at South Africa’s Ellis Park in 2001.

This Chelsea fan’s crime was to have annoyed a fellow fan seated behind. Doubtless the alleged stander was observed by officials. They saw enough. His offence has earned him a suspension for the Blues’ final game of the season against Norwich City.

Now, people standing in front of you can be annoying. But that shrill woman who sat nine rows behind me at Arsenal was no less annoying. Her shrieking “Sid-own”was enough for me to move seats.
