Tom, these youngsters need to understand what it was like supporting Chelsea in the decades before Roman. Some great memories but not very often.
The muddy pitches, the freak Boxing Day results when everyone had been on the booze on Christmas Day. Bobby Tambling, Charlie Cooke, Peter Osgood, chopper Harris the list goes on. The cats display in front of the Kop, David Webbs winner against Leeds in the replay, chopper Harris trying to cut George Best in half when George scored that great goal in the mud. Now the list of great times and memories is endless because of continual success, but we always supported the team, when we were a long way from being a top team.
Liverpool under Shanks and Paisley were the top team, and their older supporters must have endless amount of happy memories, the same with united under sir Matt with Best, law and Charlton. Top teams in England and Europe, and we could only dream of such times, until Roman came along.

Well said Sid, I have supported Chelsea 50 plus years and until Roman came we flirted with success but you supported them through good and bad including relegations, more than one I hasten to add. So for us these are great times and we realise we won't win the league every year but 5 in what 14 years is brilliant. The double, the champions league. I have seen all this, my brother went everywhere with Chelsea from the late 60s to 2003 when he died of cancer, so never saw us win the league.
So to all those out there who are recent supporters enjoy it when we win, but still support us when we aren't doing so well. Under Roman we will always come back.
Remain positive come on Chels.

i suppose its just a case of been so used to sucess an when we go from strolling a league to flopping once again d season after its hard to wonder why but i definetly laid back a bit myself towards criticism.

Two excellent posts which would resonate with TomB. Generally however, our generation do not support Chelsea through rose tinted glasses where we are upset every time someone criticises players or a performance, we have been used to the ups and downs and missed opportunities. Roman has propelled us into the upper echelons of the Premiership and Europe and along with it our expectations but even he and his management make mistakes and this forum is for opinions from supporters, none the club will listen to, and it would be an odd forum if we all agreed. We will always support our lifetime club but will always feel we know where they are going wrong (or right) and express as much.

I remember standing on that ridiculously large terracing at Charlton to see Clive Walker keep us in the old 2nd division.

It’s just baffling how we always seem to slump terribly after winning a title the last two times. Both times it’s partially down to a lack of signings. Now I don’t doubt the board tried their hardest this year to get everyone Conte wanted but it’s still incredibly frustrating that when we seem to building up steam and possibly being able to compete with the like of Barca/ Real/ Bayern we take 2 steps back.

Now home having watched a fantastic comeback by the boys in blue.
We are lacking confidence at the back and at times looked very shaky but we found a way to win. That’s why we’re CHAMPIONS.
We will all have different opinions about the performance today and that’s what makes this site worth reading.
Just for the record I thought Willian played well when he came on and I’m so pleased for Batman.
Guys, be as critical as you like about whatever you like but PLEASE offer your idea of a practical solution as well as the criticism!
We can all now have a good weekend.

MissDW- That Valley had some steep terraces as well! Clive Walker was very under rated, his goals to games for a winger was very good.
