In case you haven’t but seen, a bunch of Chelsea followers have come collectively to organise a peaceable protest this Saturday at 12pm earlier than the Brentford match at Stamford Bridge.

The protest is in opposition to the truth that The Ricketts household, who’re making an attempt to purchase Chelsea FC, are even within the equation not to mention shortlisted. There are such a lot of issues collectively in opposition to them and what they’ve executed/how they’ve operated, it’s made them collectively disliked by a lot of the fanbase.

You don’t need to do an excessive amount of analysis to search out varied articles on-line detailing how they’ve operated as a sporting group, in addition to all of the dodgy and racist stuff varied members of the family have mentioned.

I believe now is an efficient time to peacefully protest. I’m undecided persons are actually taking onboard the severity of this. Chelsea’s Muslim gamers corresponding to Antonio Rudiger and Hakim Ziyech, will they actually keep at this membership below Ricketts? I’m not so positive.

That is simply one of many many the reason why I believe we have to protest to make our voices heard now after the #NoToRicketts marketing campaign additionally making a constructive affect.

However why am I seeing a civil battle amongst Chelsea followers on Twitter over this protest? As a result of some folks don’t like one or two individuals who have organised it? Why? As a result of they’re ‘influencers’? Or as a result of they don’t seem to be match-going followers? I do not know. These are real questions… Otherwise you simply don’t like a person individual behind it? Are we in school nonetheless?

I simply suppose that we should always all be pulling collectively in the identical route with this and it’s fully irrelevant who has began the marketing campaign. The Ricketts Household needs to be nowhere close to this membership and it’s as much as us as followers to at the least attempt to do one thing about it.

The membership belongs to the followers for my part. No followers, no membership. So, we DO have a say, and we might be heard. So as an alternative of moaning and bitching about who’s beginning the protests and who’s backing them, let’s simply all get on board and battle for the membership and our future, no? Do it for yourselves not for anybody else. Or if you happen to don’t need to protest and don’t agree with them, that’s additionally fantastic, no person is forcing something on anybody.
