Chelsea investigate racist chants

IT IS a deeply unpleasant aspect of Chelsea's away support that there is a racist element whose presence is felt more keenly than at Stamford Bridge.

Decent-minded Chelsea fans, of which there are many, loathe them as much as anyone.

So good on the club for disclosing that they are investigating "racist songs" on trains from Norwich on Saturday - the kind of announcement no club would want to make.

Of course, with people like this, the level of stupidity is so acute it feels redundant to offer any advice.

Their attitude is abhorrent, but given, for example, that Didier Drogba is from the Ivory Coast, Roman Abramovich is Jewish and their former striker Nicolas Anelka is a Muslim, they appear to have lost this battle.
