This club does not deserve our Gerry
Where this issue causes me trouble personally is in defining my own attitude towards Chelsea - I don't dislike them as a football team - they are capable of superb performances like last night - and the Chelsea supporters I know are reasonable, unlike Manchester United fans (superior to us all), or Liverpool fans (obsessed with tradition and past glories); but as an institution I detest Chelsea - buying success in a vulgar manner while at the same time being unable to set appropriate standards for their players and their fans. Player power at it's extreme and in the worst hands.
I'm finding it hard to draw the line between being reasonable and being bigoted on this one. Will someone please help me.
