Why was 2011-2012 so special for Chelsea FC and their fans



We won the FA Cup, the Champions league for the first time, saw our legends step up when the time came for them to do so, a chelsea legend shows why he is a legend as a manager , found our player to fill in the void left by zola . But more importantly , reassurance for a lot of fans that the success Chelsea had after takeover by Roman Abramovish was not any fluke.

It indeed the start of a new life for the club, write history on its way to success and glory. The fans were not rubbish and glory hunters as many suggests, this was also a revelation for obviously the ones who were not supporting the club, as they saw the patience of the fans as they waited ans waited for the club to rise, for the manager brought in at the start of the season, for Fernando Torres . The passion and sentiments shared by the players and the fans of the club were quite transparent and seen on a lot of occasions this season, especially at the 2nd leg against Napoli at Stamford Bridge. One of my closest, no, BEST friend is an honest Manchester United support, and she spent her time watching that match with me, the passion of the club along with their fans were so moving that unlike most United fans she now openly proclaims Chelsea FC as her second favorite. No she did not need to watch the match, but she did, it was not me, it was the atmosphere created by the team that even touched the people watching the match from the comfort of their television sitting on a couch in their house. I am so proud of the club that in so many tough times they rose, showed their want and will to succeed , for the player, for the legends, for the club, for the fans.

Yes this season was a disaster in the beginning and 6th place still is not good enough, but there will never be a season like this. I read a lot of articles on this season, and honestly some quotes felt as if stolen from my mouth. One such statement was like "It must be utterly boring to support any other club than Chelsea" . Can any of you Chelsea fans disagree with that ? I hope not.

Really looking forward to the summer transfers, all pumped up and anticipating sensible decisions by the board and a great season ahead .
