Football – a subject guaranteed to turn normally rational men and women of science, evidence and cold hard fact into superstitious, God-fearing folk who fear that upsetting the Chelsea space-time continuum and those most fickle of deities, the footballing gods will lead to relegation, bankruptcy and Kanu type disasters.
In the next episode of The Podding Shed we will be discussing pre-match rituals and superstitions. Tell us about yours; why you have to walk a particular route to the Bridge, your lucky socks, the need for a packet of Polos in your right-hand jacket pocket and why you fear hideous and disastrous consequences if they are not observed. The odder the better is the order of the day (keep it reasonably clean – family show, and all that).
Leave your tales of superstition and bizarre ritual in the comments section below, tweet us on @chelseablog etc etc.
