Knowing our Vital Chelsea Family!

Knowing our Vital Chelsea Family!

I have been a visitor to and reader of this site for close to 4 years now.

Although I have written very few articles and comments, I love more to read the analysis / rumours / stories / feelings of our fellow Vital Chelsea mates out here in their articles and comments.

I can proudly say Vital Chelsea has got some really wonderful intellectuals here, most notably Mr. Merlin, GabeU and many others like desmondadonis, gaban, ken4cfc and even Mq for that matter too ;)

At times when I read their analyses and theories, I feel like knowing them in person. I imagine, writers Merlin and GabeU must be having encyclopaedic knowledge about the club and the club affairs and they sometimes predict the future aptly.

Inspired, I try to search them outside this forum but don't get to know who they actually are or if they have any twitter / facebook accounts to follow too and make friends with if I am that much fortunate.

Sadly, as per my knowledge, I don`t think there's a Vital Chelsea fan / community page in Facebook too where we can interact and know about ourselves in real lives.

Here, we are just 'somebodies' behind an account name.

So mates, don't you feel we should make our community much stronger by knowing each other more better?

This can be done multiple ways one of which is starting a series like the 'Tell Us about Yourself' started by Merlin a few years back, but this time including questions about the real them and what they do in their lives, where they are from, etc.. I will really be happy to know many of my fellow members of this forum.

What do you say?

Editors Note - It seems like a grand idea to me, we`ll get this one started imminently shall we?

I'm an Architect from Nigeria, loved football from my mother's womb, played football up to some levels and i fell in love with Chelsea Fc when Jose Mourhino was joined the club in 2003. I have been a guest on the site for over 2 years but i became a member last year and it has not been the best of times for chelsea but i know we'll all have reasons to celebrate soon.KTBFFH

Well, I'm a physiotherapist from Nigeria. Have been a chelsea supporter since 2004. The first Chelsea match I watched was the one I termed the "LG's ghost goal" Vs L'pool (funny how I thought chelsea was a good team without a striker then: DD11 was the striker... Lol). I've been a guest here on VC since 2008/09 or so but I only registered abt 2 year ago (without posting too) but I started posting comments last year. Never written an article yet though.

Investment Banker from London. I started supporting chelsea in 1996/97 after that little so and so called Zola joined us. I remember the match that convinced me was against Manure in early 97 when Zola scored that beautiful goal...i was hooked for life! My first game that i attended was the FA cup final in 97 at Wembley, and i havent looked back since then. :)

Engineering graduate from India, looking for a job :) . I used to be a regular member ever since this website was operational some 10 years back. Rejoined with a new account after lurking for close to a year. Merlin and other older members would probably remember me as the naive young Indian school boy, or not. Anyway, I've been a blue ever since I started playing and following football. My earliest memory of Chelsea would be when we played against Newcastle in Singapore or Malaysia during the Asian tour in 2002/03. I believe Lampard scored a goal in the final and thats when I fell in love <3 Happy to be back. Cheers!

Great idea soum. Lets get this started right away uncle merlin (facebook account is a must in my opinion sir). By the way soum, I actually changed my id from bandi83 to Gaban. The main reason is because of my admiration towards Gabeu articles/comments.

Well I work in Brand Management currently based just outside of Swansea in South Wales. This is my 20th year supporting Chelsea as I didn't really get into playing/watching football until I was 11 (32 this year!). My background is analytical but I'm not a fan of statistics as I find they are too easy to manipulate to show whatever you need to show. I'm much more into Logic and Strategic Planning which is far more interesting than number crunching! Many people who read my posts will note that all my arguments are based around logical thinking and normally far too long in length, but I do tend to detail lots of things that I find interesting and on the subject of Chelsea I could write all day! Working for quite a big European company I tend to have an insite into how major strategic decisions get made, especially when it comes to corporate image and strategy. Often I try and see the bigger picture behind how we operate as a club, but one thing for certain is that we have some of the worst PR staff on the planet (not as bad as the FA though ;) ).

From London, my 1st full year without missing a home game was in 68/69 season, Days of Ossie, Hudson and Chopper. I have only missed about 9 home games at Stamford Bridge since then, I am also an away season ticket holder at home and in Europe. Lowest point was at Bolton when we almost slipped into the 3rd Division. Highest point was at Bolton when we won the Premier League for the 1st time. Not forgetting Munich of course ! To say the club has taken over my life, is probably an understatement. Just wish the club was run in a better way, otherwise I can see it all falling away, now that FFP is going to be introduced.

From Leeds and i have been supporting Chelsea for as long as i can remember. Steve Clarke,Dixon,Townsend and Wise were the core of our team back then. I was quite young at the time of course. I make the trip to SW6 very often for the home games and must admit,theyve been feeling like away games in recent months. I dont do facebook but you can follow me on twitter @3N1TY01 and i will follow you back. Only Chelsea fans please. Love to the Blue family.

In addition i must say i first visited VC two years ago and Gabeu's articles (excellent articulation & his clarity of thought) had a big part in the early days re coming back again to this site, but since then many others have contributed to the continuosly increasing amounts of time i spend on mention a few posts that i look forward to reading, Shlok27 (the site comedian); Merlin (Dearest Uncle); Saber (verbal assassin); Latunvic (Mr right every time); Ken, Ohans, Spanishblue & Jollyheart because we think along the same lines a lot of the time; Layorh & Nelyvanile (for their ability to put across their arguments across respectfully and eloquently, even though i sometimes do not agree fully), and of course Mq (Mr Controversial) :) Welldone VC team for all your good work, and to the members on this site for your continued support for our cfc...Keep the faith

Soum here, from Bangalore, India :) Great to see such a great response from all my Chelsea brothers from other mothers :) I reckon uncle Merlin must be motivated now to be more active on fb and restart the 'tell us about yourself' series once again with more questions on ourselves !! Waiting for the heroes Merlin, GabeU, latunvic, Saber and others to let us know about them !! Well, I am a research analyst here and fell in love with the game and the club from 2005 when a certain team called Chelsea beat the hell out of Barcelona..!! Have 3 Gods in my life, Swami Vivekananda, Steve Jobs and Jose Mourinho and 1 and only one darling, Chelsea FC!! Chelsea !! We are your love and you are our life !!

Grew up in New Orleans and Mobile, AL; now I live and work as a teacher of literature and composition/rhetoric in Birmingham AL. I'm happily married to a German girl who's a CFC convert in spite of her Bayern inheritance. Her mother is still annoyed about that one! First found CFC around 2000. My brother visited SB, told me about his experiences. I was an undergrad at that point but lucky enough to live on campus near several foreign-exchange students who were playing footy on scholarship. Most of them were from the UK, and almost all of them were diehard Arsenal boys. We developed a friendly rivalry once I started following CFC more regularly, and I still have great memories of waking up early and watching footy with that group. They were really fun. Since then, my support has bordered on an obsession, culminating thus far in a honeymoon trip to SB a few years back when CFC played City. We've had serious illnesses plague our family the past few years, so international travel has been difficult; we're hoping, however, to return to London next year.
