During the Carling Cup final (I think), some Chelsea fans threw a stick of celery at an Arsenal player. The game went on and the incident was put aside because of the brawl near the end.
Now, as the FA manages to come to grips with that final, they’ve not only charged Arsene Wenger for calling the linesman a liar (a playground taunt and a typically officious and righteous response) but they have also impressed upon Chelsea the need to clamp down upon the common practice of celery-throwing.
To be fair to Chelsea fans, they’re usually not throwing celery on the pitch – boring football is usually ignored – but instead at each other, singing the following lines:
â™« CELERY, CELERY
IF SHE WON’T CUM,
I’LL TICKLE HER BUM,
WITH A LUMP OF CELERY â™ªâ™«
I’m assuming the celery stick that struck Fab (I think) was a misthrow – some Chelsea fan got over-excited after seeing a hot female, threw the celery stick at his mate (or at her…what do I know?) and hit Fabregas instead.
Arsenal, to their credit, have not pushed too hard on this incident – although they could just be concentrating really hard on trying to prove that the linesman was a liar.
Chelsea have ‘warned’ their fans not to bring celery into the stands, but I doubt that it will stop the songs, or the celery-bringing. They could start throwing other items, or use other objects in their ditties instead of celery.
