After the fallout from the false accusations made by Chelsea and their player Mikel about referee Mark Clattenberg, it now transpires that the match cameras caught yet another Chelsea fan making racist monkey gestures towards Danny Welbeck, a Manchester United player. There is a perfect irony that a club that has made FOUR previous false complaints against referees, coincidentally(sic) always after a defeat, now faces even more racism charges that CAN be substantiated.

Chelsea fans can be proud of themselves in the knowledge that they have dragged their club even further down in the mire, if that is possible. Whilst the evening was punctuated by vile chants from the Chelsea fans, albeit non-racist, it was still a disgraceful atmosphere for a football match that was being attended by families with children, and watched by millions around the world.

As for the result, United would have had a case to question why it was that 3 minutes official added time had long since elapsed when Chelsea were awarded a penalty, which resulted in their equaliser. However, Manchester United showed the dignity and propriety not to make a fuss about it even thought they had been robbed of a deserved victory.

How disappointing then that Chelsea manager Di Matteo had to make a sneering comment that it was justice, in some twisted message about the match at the weekend. It only goes to further diminish his character after a decent start in the job last season. It seems that blind bitterness is clouding his vision as well as the poisonous owner.

It will be interesting to see the reaction of the people of Manchester when Chelsea has to play at both Manchester United and City in the coming months. Friends of mine who are staunch City fans, also condemned Chelsea and their disgusting fans, warped manager and spiv owner and can`t wait to let them know when they come to town.
