SALFORD CITY CHESTER
 

Star date: 25th September 2010  

Salford City 0 Chester 4

WHOOOPEEE FOR CHESTER

`Oh West Cheshire…is wonderful…West Cheshire is wonderful-u-u-l'

You where? You what? How sad is it when about 600 Chester fans come to Salford and start singing about the delights of `West Cheshire'? Very sad!

Yes the whole village of Chester visited Salford today, bringing with them their stereotyped image of the big city… `You're the scum of Manchester…You're the scu-u-u-um of Manchester'

You what? You where?

So where were the Salford contingent of Manchester United fans when Chester, that little town near Wrexham, came to the big city calling us for everything? Were the Salford Reds sat stroking their season tickets and empty bank balances? Couldn't they afford the £7? Were they all watching FC United? Or watching Manchester City stuff Chelsea? Wherever they were, they weren't at Moor Lane this afternoon when 600 Chester fans invaded (the market must have been closed), while United didn't have a game.

Chester City those perennial old 4th Division/League Division 2/Conference strugglers, went belly up last season and landed in the Evo-Stik Division 1 North. Under a new name (they've dropped the `City') and with a big support for this level, the small, miniscule, off the radar, former league club has become a big bloated fish in a tiny non league pool. They believe they're too good for this level. And, like Halifax last season, are probably right.

This game just wasn't a contest, with Salford going two down in the first half and four down by the final whistle without the Chester keeper having to make a serious save. Maybe the Ammies showed Chester too much respect, which is more than their fans showed our city.

Outnumbered by at least six of their supporters to every Salford one, Chester fans proceeded to diss Salford at every opportunity… `You're the scum of Manchester'. The Salford Reds, who supported the tangerine army against FC United a few years ago, were nowhere to be seen, not even with Ryan Giggs' brother, Rhodri, playing his heart out as usual.

At one point it might have kicked off with a couple of Chester knob'eds goading the Salford fans but it came to nothing.

To be fair the vast majority of Chester supporters, some in fancy dress, were friendly and just curious about the ground, about the club and about the city…

"We were driving around near The Crescent and the towerblocks, getting lost, and my son said he wouldn't get out of the car if it was round here" said one Chester dad.

"Er, there was a stabbin' here yesterday" quaked another kid.

Meanwhile, the Chester `hardcore' (average age 17), once they realised that Moor Lane isn't full of knife wielding hoodies, and already 3-0 up, started to take the piss…

It could have all turned nasty. But the most nasty thing that happened was the scoreline. Salford City have to get their act together, real quick, maybe with Skelmersdale United visiting on Tuesday night (Kick off 7:45pm)… calm down, calm down…

Chester – famous for?

…Er, Ian Rush
Roman ruins
Cheshire cat? Er, cheese…Er…Chester City?
You're havin' a laugh!

The Chester fans were not that bad, just a couple of dick-heads acting hard, that what you do when you come from a small town in Wales. ps Salford is not in Manchester, see you at the Deva dip sticks.

Can't believe so many of our fans have taken this seriously and personally. Bless them, they're not so bright.

Considering the majority of Chester fans who were singing were stood right next to the Salford fans who were singing says it all! It's all a bit of banter, if you had noticed most of the second half we were singing the same songs! That's what footballs all about, it's idiots like you that give Chester a bad name, and you should hang your head in shame, we took 600 supporters, Chester fans spent £4200 on tickets to get in! At the end of the day it was all abit of banter and your proffiting out of it!

You'll see on Deva Chat that the same lobotomised chimps that were out of line at yesterday's match have had their threads removed and been warned. You'll always get strong reaction to tongue in cheek articles and this is no exception. They have the IQ of their shoe size so you can't expect much else. I went yesterday, enjoyed the result and chats with Salford fans, most of whom took the idiots with a skip of salt.

You are all idiots. You make yourselves sound like complete morons. Start watching Rugby League for heavens sake. The fighting takes place on the pitch, not amongst the supporters.

Get a grip you utter tosser, your fans piped down and had a laugh with us in the second half they found our chants entertaining and even sang shite about their own team so grow up its just a bit of banter, you will all (20) be welcome at the deva for the return game and will see what support really is. and as for the comment about our city...wait till you actually come and see it before you slag it off, we can slag yours off as it is a disgrace and a very vile place. p.s...get a propper job.

Did you get bullied at school? Yes we have a few gobby kids, but that's what it's like at football matches you fool. If we were playing in some posh hamlet, the kids would find something to shout at the opposition! As for the Salford 40 something's in the stand getting upset by a few spotty Chester kids - move out of you're Mums, get a girlfriend and keep off the play station you sad little men.

Heh, I like your style. No point in bandying words, you tell it like you see it lad. Good luck for the rest of the season, you'll get a warm welcome at Chester just as the fairer minded CFC supporters who travelled today report being made welcome today.

LOL..Sorry you feel like that.I started watching Chester at 12 when Er Ian rush played and followed the results 4 years previous when my father said it was to rough to go-Stereotypical maybe but Salford reds Have a reputation as being total hooligans which they pride themelves on,..Did you really want the youngsters to get Mullered by them for some harmless slagging.Were you bullied ? The older generation where by your bar and never even looked up..Yes i was opposite and cringed at some of the songs we sang as Leek tried to do it to us midweek even critisising our zoo, but no disrespect a great setup and ground. Salford itself is a hole. We saw a Black lad with a knife mugging 2 kids and one of our fans got glassed for taking a wrong turning. Some of your lot were in the ground at 1pm goading people. No we are not to big for this league as we are a small club and most people in chester support Utd Or Liverfool and unlike you i dont want them at our games as i would rather have a kicking than call on them. In fact i have more respect for you than Cestrians that support premiershite. Even our Blacon estate looks like tatton park to somethings i saw today.Listen we have been shafted for years and we are here on merit and we are all Chester fans who could have gave up but decided to follow a new set up,.We are better supported at home now than we have been for years yet a stupid all ticket call lost you a lot of revenue today and maybe your Utd friends would have been there otherwise..Bygones ect but please pop down for the return and see a City in full flow..

Dear Andrew. I get the feeling you've never been to a football match before. You see it's traditional for football fans to chant and goad each other. There is'nt enough room here to say what I want. But let's get one thing straight. We don't think we're too big. The majority of CFC fans are just happy to be able to support their team. And some of your other comments leave a lot to be desired. Sour grapes maybe !!!

Chester is famous for being better than a shitty suburb of manchester called Salford. Salford are obvioulsy not used to having banter a ground. Its part of the Match day experience!

HOMELESS THREATENED WITH EVICTION FROM DUCIE BRIDGE PUB IN MIDST OF £800MILLION NOMA REGENERATION SCHEME

The so-called `ethical' Co-op is threatening around two dozen young homeless people with eviction from the Ducie Bridge pub next to its swanky new HQ in Manchester.

The Co-op is a partner in the £800million NOMA regeneration scheme which owns the pub, and a notice posted on the door states `unless you vacate immediately, court action will be taken against you...'
