At half-time yesterday the Chelsea team left the field with some parts of the crowd showing their disapproval with resounding jeers and boos. At the end of the game those jeers were replaced by cheers as Chelsea staged a fightback and maintained their unbeaten start to this season.
It has to be said that the jeers came from a small minority of the crowd and Andre Villas-Boas was not impressed, and he is urging the supporters to back their team at all times and he said, “To go past a season in the Premier League, where you have to win it back, you need the full support of everybody. Everybody must get involved and you must feel the presence of the public in a supporting way.”
He also said, “This team wants to be champions again. The public wants to be champions and demands it. We are listening to their demands and want to perform, but we need their full support all the time.”
Strong words then from the boss, but in football no matter how well your team is performing there will always be a small section that is never happy. Chelsea may not have gone off like an express train this season, but ask Arsene Wenger about the importance of churning out a 2-1 home win.
