We live in the age of pervasive, instant on, always on, social media, but for once, it’s a force for goodness and happiness and brotherhood among humankind. Well, at least if you’re a Chelsea fan.
Here are three Instagram Live streams from Friday night, from Michy Batshuayi, Thibaut Courtois, and Ola Aina, compiled into one YouTube video, giving us a unique, intimate, and sadly a fair bit blurry look into the dressing room festivities after the final whistle blew on Chelsea’s 1-0 win at the Hawthorns. Then again, with Diego Costa turning things up to 11 and taking things a bit too far as he’s wont to do, perhaps it’s okay that not everything is in crystal clear high definition.
Be sure to watch it all the way to Ola’s stream, which gives us a complete look at masseur Billy McCulloch’s somewhat tragic take on “the worm”. It’s all in good fun of course. Billy’s a legend, just as Chelsea this team.
Here are a few more, including another from Courtois, plus David Luiz and Diego Costa (with Kenedy at the wheel half the time). The Costa one includes the part where he tries to wash his eyes out with Lucozade while telling Hazard, posing as the interviewer, to [FUN] off. Ain’t no party like a Costa party!
P.S.: A certain Romelu Lukaku (who had just finished playing for Everton) was making sure to tune in as well and watch some of his friends celebrate. New transfer rumors incoming in 3, 2, 1...
