... please stop the rent boy chant. It's dumb and isn't making EFC look good. We sing about how we're respected everywhere, yet this chant doesn't respect those of the LGBTQ persuasion. Just stop it. /rant over
Onana at the end was great! Love seeing that type of excitement and interaction with the fans!
Well that was a roller coaster of emotions.
Team dug in, refused to be beat and deserved a point I reckon.
Crowd was tense but in good voice, the release when the first goal went in was incredible. Where we were in the Lower Shed no one knew who had scored for pretty much the rest of the half, all we knew was that we had scored. There was a lot of doubt as to whether the penalty should have been given as in real time from where we were it looked like the Chelsea player deliberately fell over a leg. Though having watched it back now, yeah, nailed on.
For the first half it looked like we were playing for set pieces inside the 30 yards from their goal. Every time we broke forward, we would stop and turn back, or slow down, almost waiting for Chelsea to make a tackle and so hopefully concede a foul.
Made up for Simms, was at the far end but it looked like he took it really well.
Onana at the end of the game standing on the pitch soaking up the crowd singing. He gets us.
I'd rather die with our history than live with theirs...
