  • Description

    IN THE INTER-CITIES FAIRS CUP IN ROME LAST NIGHT, (WEDNESDAY) CHELSEA DREW 0 - 0 WITH ROMA IN A MATCH THAT DREW CONSIDERABLE VIOLENCE FROM THE CROWD.

    THE RESULT OF THE MATCH HAS PUT CHELSEA THROUGH INTO THE SECOND ROUND OF THE INTER-CITIES FAIRS CUP ON A 4-1 AGGREGATE THEIR WINNING MARGIN IN THE FIRST LEG AT STAMFORD BRIDGE.

    BEFORE THE MATCH STARTED, THE CHELSEA PLAYERS WERE GIVEN AN INDICATION OF THE MOOD OF THE ITALIAN CROWD AS THEY WENT ON THE PITCH, THEY WERE SPAT AT AND INSULTS WERE HURLED AT THEM. WHEN THE MATCH BEGAN, THE 40 THOUSAND ROMAN CROWD HOWLED AND WHISTLED AND PELTED THE CHELSEA PLAYERS WITH RUBBISH. TWO CHELSEA MEN WERE KNOCKED OVER AND BADLY DAZED BY MISSILES AND BY HALF TIME THE PITCH WAS LITTERED WITH OBJECTS. HOWEVER THE CHELSEA TEAM SHRUGGED OFF THE INDIGNITIES FROM THE CROWD AND TOOK EVERYTHING WITHOUT ONCE LOSING THEIR TEMPERS.

    CHELSEA FOOTBALL CLUB HAS SENT AN OFFICIAL PROTEST TO THE ORGANISERS OF THE INTER-CITIES FAIRS CUP.
