At one point in every football-loving man’s life, there’s a sad moment that makes him weep. That being said, no premier league side has given its fans more heart attacks than Chelsea Football Club. Let’s consider 5 moments that make Chelsea Fans cry the most.
1. John Terry’s Penalty Slip Against Manchester United in 2008 UCL
At this point, Chelsea fans’ hope for the Champions League was over, not anticipating even in a century but thanks to Didier Drogba, Machial Essian, John Terry and co, they won it. It was a moment where my father cried in front of me. Being young then, I never understood him until I grew up. This is not a moment for soft hearts. At that moment hearts ceased to pump blood, brains shuttered and a lot may even commit suicide. Why so much shock? The John Terry we all know wouldn’t make such a mistake at that crucial time no matter the circumstance but there we go, it was a terrible experience. Not to remind you of a bad moment but it’s worth watching again especially for those who were born yesterday lol.
2. Didier Drogba’s departure
After eight seasons at Chelsea, Didier Drogba has declared that he will leave the Blues “for an extraordinary jump into the obscure.”
While this is one of the saddest pieces of sports news I’ve heard in for some time, that was partially a moment where true Chelsea fans felt pain for a legend leaving the bridge. It was a sad moment unless you didn’t him moment opponents. The header which won Chelsea the only Champions league comes to mind. Since 2004, the Ivorian has been a staple in the Chelsea XI, and he has given rival groups bad dreams from that point forward.
Clearly, when you score more than 150 significantly and consistently at a club, will undoubtedly have some incredible minutes. This rundown observes Drogba’s most noteworthy. At that moment, not only did Drogba cried after his last game, many fans cried and wished it has not happened.
3. Andres Iniesta’s last equalizer goal against Chelsea
Reliving the most infamous match ever, the 2009 Chelsea-Barcelona UCL Semifinal which had a last-minute equalizer from the maestro Andres Iniesta of Barcelona. It was a game between the Titans. With my hood made of mainly Chelsea fans, the equalizer brought the whole neighborhood into a ghost town. Everywhere was silent such that you could hear the wind whispering. Whenever Barcelona fans want to get a Chelsea fan upset, just mention Andres Iniesta’s name and the debate is over lol. It’s a difficult moment for true Chelsea fans to remember that moment. Isn’t it?
4. John Terry leaving Chelsea
How could you write Chelsea’s history without John Terry? Terry went through 19 years of his professional Football carrier at Chelsea Football Club and captained the club to five Premier League titles and a Champions League win. Leaving the club was like man in-love leaving his wife to war in Afghanistan. It was emotionally felt worldwide even to the opponent club. When Terry was delivering his departure speech, you couldn’t see tears flow a man’s face like this. It was a sad and tough moment for him. Watch the video:
5. Liverpool ends Chelsea 86-home match unbeaten home record.
Any true Chelsea fan including opponents admits that the best you can get from the bridge in 2008 is draw. A win is never an option but a certain Xabi Alonso of Liverpool brought the bright to stand still. Some people have suggested that there is an air of invincibility about this season’s Chelsea side following their storming start to the Premier League season but it was a great moment to be a Chelsea fan and watch Chelsea play.
