Chelsea fans were made fun of after unwinding huge Hazard flag minutes into Liverpool match. The Blues lost the match 1-2 at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea fans have explained the “sticky” indiscretion which led to a large Eden Hazard banner. This was exposed before Sunday’s match against Liverpool. The Reds ultimately ran out 2-1 winners at Stamford Bridge. Despite Frank Lampard’s side accumulating on the strength in the second half. In fact, it was a few minutes ere the game which left the both inside the Stamford Bridge and those following at home on the TV bamboozled. This happened when Blues supporters uncovered a huge Hazard banner in the Matthew Harding end.
Hazard, of course, has moved away from the club this summer to join Real Madrid. The deal is deemed to be worth around £130million. Members of the club’s fan base have exerted to social media to unblock the Sunday’s catastrophe.
What did the Tweets say?
“People actually thinking the Hazard flag was used on purpose by the Matthew Harding stand. Just an error that’s all,” Chelsea fan page We Are The Shed said on Twitter.
“So much work/effort goes into organizing these things and having so many flags it was bound to happen one day! Wasn’t ideal but if we can’t laugh at ourselves.” read another tweet.
CFCUK Fanzine then added: “Was embarrassing I agree but it is the club who inadvertently gave us the wrong banner to display. Too complicated to go into how the procedure works but by the time we realized the wrong banner was going out it was too late to stop it – it won’t happen again.”
Liverpool fans responded with a chant of “what the hell is that?!“ given how Hazard displayed his delight at signing for Real Madrid in June. Also, the online animadversions also steered out the exceptional characteristics of the layout.
Twitter user Alex commented: “Anyone wants to tell them they’re a bit late with the Hazard banner?” Another, Klainer, wrote: “Eden Hazard banner? Seriously?” A Hazard fan account wrote: “Omg there’s a hazard banner being passed around Stamford Bridge, I wonder if he’s watching.”
Some other fan account continued: “Very odd to choose the Hazard banner today. Nothing wrong with remembering former players… but surely the current #Chelsea players deserve our support today?”And Myles wrote: “Chelsea rocking the Eden Hazard banner hahaha.”
In the seven years at the Stamford Bridge, he netted over 100 goals and won two Premier League titles. His list of achievements includes as many Europa Leagues and an FA Cup. A changeless banner celebrating Hazard in the Shed End, in the Belgium colors with ‘Garden of Eden’ scribbled across it, was in fact lifted after his sale. Life in Madrid has been considered far from ideal for the winger. Though, his full appearance in midweek ended with a 3-0 loss at Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.
