“Chelsea not welcome in Battersea,” growl locals

November 25, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Chelsea’s plans to explore building a new stadium at Battersea power plant have been met with stubborn resistance by long-term residents at the local dogs’ home.

The club are eager to find a new home to replace Stamford Bridge, but canines who have been living in the area for years are not so enthusiastic at proposals.

One Dalmation revealed, “Chelsea think they have the money to do whatever they want but we will only accept the best football club possible for our area.

Battersea locals unimpressed

“Besides, playas like John Terry are renowned for doing their fair share of dogging and we don’t want anyone stepping on our action.”

Battersea residents howl displeasure

Aside from concerns over competition off the pitch, many of the dogs are highly critical of Chelsea’s recent form and style of play on it.

One elderly German Shephard pointed out, “Some might assume we’re used to dog food here, but we’re still not force fed like those supporters at Stamford Bridge.

“On current form I’d much prefer seeing Spurs come to town, or even Arsenal.

“As long as Van Persie’s fit, of course.”

A statement from Chelsea read, “We understand the locals’ upset at experiencing change but as far as criticising this club is concerned they’re barking up the wrong tree!”

    I always said the London teams are going to the dogs – go the North.
