It seems our reputation has gone before us, albeit in an out-dated kind of way.
One of the leading tabloids has published a piece from the UK Government web-site, a piece that reads, with regards to those Chelsea supporters travelling to Prague for the Europa League match this Thursday,
"The gates will be opened two hours prior to kick-off. You advised to avoid corner of Gate 2 which is a home stand. This place will be under riot police control."
"Body search and personal belongings check will be in place. Fans are not allowed to bring drink, poles, flares, weapons and celery."
Now that`s a blast from the past!
