These days, being a Chelsea fan is one of the easiest things in football.
A plethora of success since Roman Abramovic took over the club back in 2003, asking any Chelsea supporter to pick a list of the biggest and best triumphs would certainly provoke discussion and debate.
Here at SillySeason, we like to listen to YOU, the fans, and for this article I spoke with multiple True Blue’s, and complied with them this list, so get your celery, sit back, and in no particular order save the last, lets take a look at Chelsea Football Club’s TOP 10 BIGGEST wins of all time, according to the supporters!
NUMBER 10 – CHELSEA VS LIVERPOOL – 1997 FA CUP 4TH ROUND!
Kicking things off with an FA Cup 4th Round tie back in 1997, a good old fashioned comeback. After 21 minutes, Liverpool were 2-0 up against the Blues, but after goals from Mark Hughes, Gianfranco Zola, and two from Gianluca Vialli, Chelsea sealed a famous victory over The Reds. “I didn’t really follow English football, at the time.” Said Chelsea Fan Alan Muir, from Scotland. “I was watching the game with my older brother, an avid Liverpool fan!” He recalls taking a keen interest in the game, after Mark Hughes, a player he particularly liked at the time, came on and scored Chelsea’s first of what became a historic comeback. “The team work, and the noise from the crowd just bowled me over. An amazing show of heart and spirit to come back from 2-0 down to what was at the time, a very very good Liverpool side.” The win allowed Chelsea to continue on in that season’s FA Cup, and the Blues would eventually lift the old trophy. “I’d even go as far to say, that due to that day, I became more passionate about Chelsea than my Scottish team, Hearts!” Alan went on to say. There is no doubt, a huge comeback against an incredible Liverpool side, sparked a fire in the hearts of many Blues – and lives on in memory to this day.
