The footballing world was shocked to its very foundations yesterday when Arsenal fans engaged in some mild piss-taking by singing about how Chelsea’s boring football was, well, a bit boring.
With no need to be expansive or try and win the match due to their lead in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho’s side understandably weren’t taking any risks with their game.
This led Arsenal fans to sing ‘Boring, boring Chelsea’, having a little fun with the age-old ‘Boring, boring Arsenal’ chant that used to be directed their way.
This disgraceful behaviour was picked up on by members of the press who have dedicated many column inches to it this morning, with some even asking Mourinho for his thoughts on it.
The Portuguese managed to pull himself together to craft a typically snide reply but it must have been absolutely devastating for him to have to hear such invective directed at his soon-to-be-crowned champions.
Despite the heartache and pain he endured he fronted up and bravely gave the media what they wanted. What an absolute credit he is to the game of football.
It comes in stark contrast to the silence in post-game press conferences when stadiums rocked to the sound of Arsene Wenger being called a paedophile.
It’s good to know that football has got its priorities in order, and that any further incidents of fans engaging in tongue-in-cheek teasing or joshing will no longer be tolerated.
