You never know what money does to people. I believe that Chelsea fans are glory-hunters ! Let me explain , These things entered my mind soon after Jose left and Chelsea were centre stage in the media. You remember on Grand-Slam Sunday at the Bridge when Arsenal scored first ? The crowd were chanting 'You dont know what you are doing !'. Thats not the chants you want at a home game. What does Grant do ? Bring on Balleti and Anelka.... Two long balls and Chelsea have won ! All is well again ? Grant has 2 cups rather silverware in sight , and Chelsea fans want him sacked ? Semi-Finals of CL and you sack a manager ? Just cos he's not open in Media ? Not flamboyant or do they want a new manager .... with new buys ? Glory Hunters eh ? At the home game Versus Boro' I saw a woman sleeping ? These a re chelsea fans ? Hmm.... not true fans ! :rolleyes:

if you look at chelsea history they have not exactly been overblessed in the trophy department . they have a loyal band of fans who watched them in the lean years many of whom cannot afford to get in at the bridge . we come moaning about o/t prices which are about middling in prem league but chelsea despite having a minted owner make fans pay through the nose . the fan you saw asleep was dog tired from working 100 hour weeks so she could get in !!.

Did i mention i hate them with a passion and i have for years ? nothing to do with the chelski years more the cringeworthy blue is the colour song and the brand of anti football they have always played as far back as i can remember .

I have an example for you. I have a freind who was a bayern munich fan. when jose came to chelsea and started winning and running for cups, my friend changed his favorite teram and beacame a chelsea fan. he was a chelsea fan until manu won the title las year. so he decided chelsea is not a good team and he became a real madrid fan!!! i don't know what's his problem (and others like him). i live in iran and there are so many people like him. they just go with the wave. but most of the manu fans didn't change their favorite team. i believe most of us members of this forum are truly manu fans. i liked manu year 1993 and now i'm 26. you do the math. before that i never saw any league matches even not in iran. but after watching cantona, giggs, robson and other manu's playing i fell in love with this club. now you show me 3000 chelsea fan who love their club. while manu lovers are millions around the world...

chelsea, liverpool, man united,arsenal all have there fare share of glory supporters dont you think ?

chelsea are a joke, soon as they get money and win the league it starts selling out again ! they are so thick and arrogant they have a flag saying "we want our trophy back" its cringeworthy and pathetic

the top 4 teams have been marketed so much in asia etc... for money you are bound to get glory supporters.

personally i cant wait to go to chelsea in a few weeks time and take the piss :D

i await the usual ***** they sing though :rolleyes:

when i first liked man utd i never knew who is cantona or giggs or even fergosen. i liked the way they played. before that i only knew maradona , pele and some other famous players. i never changed my favorite team and will never. but my freind and so many others like him, they look which side is performing better in that exact moment and they follow it.

Glory hunters infest every top club; Roy Keane calls them the Prawn sandwich brigade "Oh darling, I simply do NOT have anything to wear!" type of people.

Chelski were always the "toffs" club in London, right back to early days. They were struggling with crowds of half full to three quarter full under previous managers like Hoddle and Ranieri. When Abramobitch arrived and started buying whole teams; the prawns came out of their "town" apartments and began to buy season tickets. They support no team but are seen "where it's at" ...............................

The same people can be found in the West End bars with their bottles of Bud and Pimms. OK ya?

That is so true.

But I wouldn't class those supporters as football gloryhunters. I would class them as personal gloryhunters if you know what I mean. They know nothing about football, but they go because Man United are the biggest, most glamourous team, with the best stadium, and when they say "I've got a season ticket at Old Trafford" it makes THEM look good. But saying that, United do have football gloryhunters, but every big club as Gloryhunters. I mean, when a club has major success, their fanbase grows. How does that work?

One example is someone who goes to the same school as me. He went to my old Primary School as well, and he is a Rangers supporter. At Primary School he always said his favourite English team was Arsenal (this was about 2002) and earlier this year, I see him walking around school with a Man United strip on. How does that work?!?!?!

Manchester United fans are called gloryhunters biggest of all because all the success this club has had. I have no connection with supporting the club, I just wanted to support them from when I was a child even though I came from Newcastle, you know what I mean?

Sometimes, I wish I was from Manchester, but hey you can't choose families or places where you are born.

jaysus, dont be giving us all a bad name.....

You do have a point to be fair. You see all the kids running around in their
Chelsea kits and so on. I just laugh when I see them.

Overall its United who have the most Glory Hunters. We have been the
most successful team since the inception of the Premiership and therefore
get a lot glory hunters who want a bit of the action.
You cant really blame them as such but we are surrounded by them...
Its life I guess, dont let it bother you so much......there are bigger things
to be worried about.

only thing that pisses me off is when you see these people at old trafford

makes ya angry !

i always find that glory supporters are the 1st to complain when we are getting beat, but never sing or get behind the team,

then if we score and go ahead these people sing and make noise

prime example sunday

went quiet when we conceded and picked up after
