“Carefree, wherever you may be, We are the famous CFC, And we don’t give a f*ck. Cause we are the famous CFC.”
Sung by Chelsea fans at every home game, whether Win, Lose or Draw; as they show their ultimate support through chants and shouts.
Chelsea home results since club creation has been excellent, they have been an almost unbeatable team at home making Stamford bridge a fortress. The fans had witnessed their team outclassing opponents at the bridge occasionally; Like a 13–0 win over Jeunesse Hautcharage in European cup winner’s cup on September 29th 1971, beating Wigan athletic 8–0 on 9 May 2010 and 8–0 win over Aston villa on 23 December 2012 both in English Premier League was another catchy demolition witnessed at Stamford bridge.
Like when Irish Striker Joe Bambrick scored a 55th-minute lead – goal vs Arsenal on 12 October 1935 in front 82,905 fans at Stamford bridge [the match ended 1-1], Chelsea had experienced disappointing draws yet electrifying atmosphere at home. Almost completing an epic Comeback (4–4) vs Ajax on 16 October 2019 in a UCL group stage drama clash at Stamford bridge is another epitome of Memorable draw at the Bridge; As one could say Chelsea should have won the match after two Ajax players were sent off when the score was 2-4 with the Time still at 70 minutes. Ajax took the lead at halftime with score being 1–3, Dutch midfielder Van de Beek made it four for the away team in 55th minute into the match. Chelsea found a way back into the game through the Captain, Cesar Azpilicueta through a cross from the season debutant Christian Pulisic; At 70th minute its a Red card……and a penalty…and another red card! As Daley blind and Veltman were sent off which sparked the life a miraculous comeback. Jorginho converted the penalty to make it 3-4 and youngster Reece James scored the fourth goal after pearling a shot into the bottom left of the Net. Reece James then became Chelsea’s youngest goalscorer in Champions League history.
“What a game, we never give up” Reece James stated on Twitter.
After the game Another Memorable season for fans attending Stamford bridge is the 2004 -05 season when Portuguese Manager Jose Mourinho was appointed head coach for the first time at the club. It was a historic season for the club as the vast number of records were set that season, Records like Most clean sheets kept in a season, Most points in a season, Most wins in a season and many more like that. Chelsea opened the season with a 1-0 win over Alex Ferguson’s Man United at Home in front of 41,813 spectators, A match that could be argued as the tightest defence ever by Chelsea. Several memorable results at Stamford bridge followed like beating Liverpool 1-0, Newcastle 4-0, Norwich 4-0 & Crystal Palace 4-1. That game against United was one of those where you could feel that ‘all in’. One of these matches where I felt, the game is 90 minutes – but it could be 900
minutes and they would not score. We would always win the match. Jose Mourinho speaking to The Coaches Voice.
Fast-forward to 2019/20 season when Club Legend Frank Lampard was appointed as the new Head coach of the club, see Chelsea go through a bad run of form at Home; winning just 7 in 16 matches played at Home in all Competitions. Disappointing results at Home such as 0-2 loss to Southampton, 0-1 loss to Bournemouth & 0-1 London derby loss to Westham fuels the fire of Why Chelsea find it difficult to win in front of their own fans? How the mighty has fallen? From the Most wins at Home to Worst run at Home!
