This thread IS NOT going to be of ANY interest to the vast majority of American members, but their few football (soccer) fans and this is for them. Simple question - why all the Chelsea bashing all of a sudden? They win the Premiership, win the first seven matches in the new season, play for a logical nil all draw in the CL, and they are the death knell of football in England?!?! The venom being spat at them is almost unreal. Does success breed contempt?
