Everyone knows that in soccer you can not win each recreation that you simply play, and all of us ought to know that we wont win each recreation we play (removed from it currently), even at residence.
However Stamford Bridge has a newer historical past of being a spot that no staff desires to come back and play at, and in seasons of late, that historical past was nothing however a distant reminiscence.
Our lame makes an attempt at making Stamford Bridge a fortress once more in current seasons has failed, and in reality, it received to a degree the place groups had been excited to come back to our residence stadium as a result of they knew that they had an amazing likelihood of taking factors from us.
This triggered for a worsened environment at residence video games, a poisonous really feel amongst the fan base earlier than, throughout, and after the video games, and dropping that capability to have our personal followers because the ‘further particular person’.
Generally, it may be followers that win you matches. I’m speaking about these final 5 minutes in a recreation if you find yourself making an attempt to see out a lead and followers are cheering a giant deal with or a giant block, it spurs the gamers on sufficient to complete that recreation out and ensuring they proceed to place 100% effort into each transfer they make and each block, deal with, or dash they do, even when they’re utterly knackered. The worth of the group mustn’t ever be underestimated, and it’s so vital in so many features.
And this is the reason it’s completely pinnacle that we do all we will to maintain Stamford Bridge as a fortress once more, and consider it or not, this season it’s beginning to develop into that when once more.
Chelsea at the moment are unbeaten in ten video games at residence, profitable eight of these video games alongside the best way.
Now we will debate the opposition all day lengthy, however the best way issues have been currently, it doesn’t matter who we’re placing away at residence, simply so long as we’re placing them away.
Chelsea’s subsequent residence recreation is in opposition to Wolves and it’s crucial that we hold that residence momentum going, proper earlier than we ‘welcome’ Tottenham to Stamford Bridge.
Not solely does it have the followers feeling constructive about coming to residence video games, it additionally provides the gamers confidence and an actual raise each time they arrive to The Bridge and play. They know that they’ve been sturdy there currently and so they can use that as an additional motivation.
We wont win each recreation there, however it’s so vital we make ourselves very laborious to beat there. We have to strike that concern again in any opponent who’ve to come back and play in opposition to Chelsea on our personal turf. This may accomplish that a lot injury psychologically and may genuinely win us matches.
I’ve been to video games currently and I’ve observed the environment simply typically having a poisonous really feel. It’s utterly comprehensible although. However we’ve an opportunity to alter that now by turning Stamford Bridge again right into a fortress, and this current run of ten video games inbeaten there, has given us all an enormous raise, a raise that all of us very a lot wanted proper now.
