90% Of Chelsea Fans In Nigeria Are Post Abrahamovich?

Of course, there is a general believe that 90% of Chelsea fans in Nigeria are post-Abrahamovich, it is true except for only one person I know in this forum, that is Akolawole. Who wants to agree or disprove this?

I fully agree with the OP here. 90% of Chelsea fans I know joined the frenzy Mourinho brought to EPL.

I know only one person that supported Chelsea pre-JM. Oh why Chelsea?! That's the first thing I ask when I see a refined person support Chelsea. Many Chelsea fans in Nigerians are people that asks questions like 'What is Yobo doing at the back?'

Admittedly, I also started supporting Arsenal in 1999 when Kanu joined. And I know many Nigerians also have same reason for supporting Arsenal.

viee, i don't really know if i will tag your points as womanish or envious. i expected to hear you discuss about handball or other threads that has to do with women's life.

all the same, u said u hate chelsea. wow, u hate money men so be it. enjoy in other people's success and u will be the next.

a player can bring in as much fans as 10,000,000.00 for a club. like i said earlier, i am a chelsea fan but not for life.

mangers or clubs never say for life. we will be surprise that if wenger happens to see a more lucrative business somewhere else tomorrow he will go to the press and tell us that he needs a new challange.

players are like prostitutes, they go where it is benefitting them more.so who am i to die for a club the owners wouldn't care if i exist.

i am in chelsea because of mikel so if he leaves, i will leave with him.

in the time mourinho has been in England the only person who can claim to have done as well as him is maybe Benitez, and thats because of the CL win

in the 3/4 years, he is unequaled in achievement

only good with his mouth? in the last 4 seasons he's won 2 portuguese titles, 1 UEFA cup, 1 CL, 2 premierships and 2 carling cups

don't let your hatred cloud good judgement.

for the record I hate the chelskites too, but not on the basis achievement, cos they've done that better than anyone else.

Why is everyone beefing chelsea's success in recent years?Man u have been buying all the fancy players like Beckham and I did not hear any complains.Well, I have loved the blues since Ruud Gullit, Zola and Babayaro were there.Liked them b'cos there were gutsy enuff to bring in foreigners when other English clubs were bein conservative.Liked them b'cos they are challengin the status quo in English football.Like them cos Mikel is there and I'm a tru patroit, albeit an Igbo one.Like them for giving Man U and Arsenal a decent run for their money.Tru Blu 4eva, man!Don'y know about Goners and Manure, sorry, Man U.

it is a bit pitty that our boys and some people here in nigeria have formed a foreign foot ball clubs here in the country.  they bet their lives in the game, some times bet big money in the game. also some times brake bottle and chuk or stab themselves in the name of being a fan or part of white mans foot ball club that has nothing to do with them or know who they are.  is this not crazy or madness of the millennium?  odi kwa egwu di anyi.  i call it insanity but they see it as a wiseest thing to do in their respective lives.  manchester and arsenal in deed.

what ever u call history, starts one day.

pre, post or ante abro. fans, chelsea fans are chelsea fans.

if u are arsenal or man u fan, i want to believe something pushed u to where ever u are and when that is gone,, u will be forced to look arround.

club managers do leave clubs for other clubs and players also do leave for other clubs so fans can as well leave.

as a fan, i do not get any financial benefits from the clubs, all i get at the end of the day is the happiness of good football and the joy of winning matches.

i used to be an arsenal fan but when i begin to understand how close i was to high BP from incessant disappointments, couple with the presence of billionaire as well as the emergence of our able funky coach, i had no option than to quit.

i hereby welcome you all die hard, fans to do like i have done.

please swallow your pride and join me in this new found happiness.

to crown it all, we demolished tothenham last night with our own mikel at the helm of affairs-recieving and distributing passes in the manner of a football lord.

nigerians with good will shld not ask for more.

It is patriotic for Nigerians to support any club in which a Nigerian is representing. Newcastle have about 3 Nigerians (2 runaways) and if they are up against any premiership club besides Boro, i'll support them too. That doesn't mean I'm a Newcastle Fan.

Go check it, those who you think are supporting Newcastle cos of martins have their club prolly outside the Premiership, maybe Serie A or La Liga, some have clubs in every country.

Am not happy about the lack of discuss about our local teams in Naija too, but can I ask you one question Christiano? Can you name the starting 11 of your team in Naija?

Money, organisation and also Media is important to promote stuff which satellite TV has done for Sport abroad. My local team is IICC Shooting Stars (now 3SC), but I havent gone to Lekan Salami or Liberty Stadium in years and they are in Division 1 now,

The local football scene is Moribund, You can't blame people for looking elsewhere. Nigeria JagaJaga!

So what? Truth is they are doing what everybody wants to do and that is win.Didnt know a lot of Man U fans in the 80s either. Most of them started springing up when Man u was winning and were the most popular club(90s)-Bandwagon effect if u ask me.

OK Guys , ALL CALM DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To be extremely honest ( I dont support both Arsenal or Chelsea or Man Utd or Liverpool), Arsenals free flowing football is the best in the Premiership. They might not be getting anywhere at the moment but they are a delight to watch. Am not being biased (they actually are my clubs greatest 'enemies!).

If you really wanna watch beautiful artistic football in the Premiership, watch the following 3 teams play: Arsenal, Manchester United and my team Tottenham Hotspur. Thats the truth. No bias.

Take the last carling cup as an example, despite the young lads paraded by Arsene Wenger, they artistry display of real soccer by the young guns, go down in history as one of the best final of Carling Cup. Chelsea was able to save the day, because of your regular teams who know the consequence of what will be to lose to the young guns - which is a disgrace. Admit it, Akolawole, Arsenal play the best game on that day, even without the regulars. This shows that, free flowing, entertaining and display of soccer artistry is in the blood of Arsenal, no wonder die hard fans of Arsenal will love Arsenal for LIFE.

Its high time i launch a similar thread, not because of hatred but for fact-finding.

@TwinsTaiye

What can i say?

Because na you, we will sort it out on Yahoo messanger.

I read this from your blog. I have few questions

1) What makes Arsenal fans the real lovers of the game?

2) Do you want me to mention few of many matches that Arsenal played that was more than BORING/RUBBISH?

i shocked and surprised at chelsea hater. What ever ur beef is, i have got no idea. No one disses another fella for choosing 2 support a club so why insult chelsea supporters. Immaturity and inferiority complex cos u are scared the of loosing, u are scared chelsea's got the money, stars, coach and support they need. They are now a force to recorn with.

Chelsea haters, deal with it, u cant always win. If u are such a sport lover, u should know what a sportmanship is all about.

I support chelsea and arsenal, however if it comes to a tie, I am chelsea for life, besides as far as i'm concerned, roman money helped us get the equipments (more players) needed to succeed.

Na wah o! if 90% of chelsea fans are post Abrahamovich, SO WHAT? Abeg leave us alone now! Why shouldn't someone be allowed to switch clubs if he sees one where they play the kind of football he likes? If politicians can switch parties at will, how much more football fans? If u ask me, for the love of good football.

for the record, it's when i saw the new chelsea football that i became an english football fan. I am a die hard Mourinho fan. But for all other chelsea fans out there, abeg leave us alone.

On the bright side, chelsea fans, it's because we are on a winning streak. that's why we get this often.

its not really a bad thing to support a team, but the way chelsea fans are going about it is so annoying. last nite during the aston villa v arsenal game a guy sittin next to me at the pub kept shouting insults at arsena wenger and even claimed he was a pig? imagine, he made so much noise about chelsea and i asked him if he really loved football or he was all about chelsea which he answered in the affirmative, he kept shouting i could hardly keep up with the commentary, imagine a chelsea fan at an arsenal game and making or trading insults, i now asked him how much he new about the blues and he said he was an expert, asked who peter kenyon was and he could not but stammer, i apologised to him for taking the trouble to banter with him BECAUSE 90% OF CHELSEA FANS HARDLY KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE TEAM BUT MAKE SO MUCH NOISE ABOUT AS IF THEY ARE GOD AND WE ARE ALL FOOLS, SHOW SOME RESPECT PLS, GUNNERS, RED DEVILS AND LIVERPOOL HAVE BEEN THERE DONE THAT. i also pray romans divorce will not make the cah flow cease

pray for chelsea, we still need the competition though

The statement applies to all Nigerian supporters of the Foreign Clubs, most only support clubs that have Nigerian players amongs their ranks.  The acceptance and transfers of Nigerian players in the English League has opened support from outside.  

I salute all Nigerian fans, we are strong behind Abrahamovich & Jose Mourinho.
