  • Chelsea face part closure of Stamford Bridge in Europa League.
  • UEFA are investigating the Blues for alleged anti-semitic chanting.
  • Do you think this is fair, Blues? Let us know @TalkChelsea
Chelsea could be forced to close part of Stamford Bridge for the next leg of our Europa League campaign if UEFA find our fans guilty of anti-Semitic chanting.
Following our 2-2 draw with MOL Vidi on Thursday night, the papers were dominated by further alleged racial discrimination from Chelsea supporters.
Allegations of anti-Semitic chanting come less than a week after a fan was caught on camera appearing to racially abuse Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling.
Chelsea fans didn’t learn their lesson from the weekend, clearly, and UEFA may be set to take steps to punish the match going faithful for the actions of a minority in Hungary.
The Telegraph report that the Stamford Bridge leg of our round of 32 Europa League tie could be hit with a partial stadium ban in wake of the alleged anti-Semitic chanting.
Cup games are oftentimes the best opportunities for those who don’t have a season ticket to go see their beloved Blues in action, so this would be a real shame if it came to fruition.

I’m very tired of this. Arsenal supporters greet their Spurs supporting friends as Yids. Spurs supporters refer to themselves as Yids. Why is it antisemitic ? Perhaps because it gives journalists the chance of writing more rubbish ?
