Chelsea ban celery (and urge fans to shop their vegetable-wielding mates!)

CeleryChelsea have banned celery from Stamford Bridge after two referees mentioned in their match reports that the vegetable had been thrown onto the pitch. Blues fans traditionally take the offending item to their matches in honour of their chant Celery.

But fans have now been warned that they may be refused entry to matches if they attempt to take celery into the ground, and face arrest if they are caught throwing it. A helpful news item on the Chelsea website points out: " The throwing of anything at a football match, including celery, is a criminal offence for which you can be arrested and end up with a criminal record."

If you're interested the Celery Hotline (for grassing your mates confidentially) is: 020 7915 1919

way to take away any thing that makes a club unique. its not like people are getting bludgeoned by the things, except maybe fabregas that one time but for gods sake!
