My garden conservatory is bigger than this

Isn’t the lack of Wi-Fi inside Stamford Bridge irritating?

Can Chelsea fans get any more middle class?

Where’s me wi-fi

We all love a stereotype when it comes to football fans – The Kop love a minute’s silence, West Ham’s support are particularly fickle and the Arsenal faithful all bring their imacs to matches. Yet it doesn’t help to dissolve these unfair generalisations, when supporters play up to them, as friend former friend of thespoiler Tim Lovejoy, did last night.

Disappointed that he was unable to fully use his iphone at the Bridge during the Atletico match, Lovejoy went outside the ground to tweet:

iphone internet stuff doesn’t work at the home of football. How annoying is that?

Post-match, he further commented:

You would have thought Roman would have put free wi fi at the Home of football for all us Kings Road ponces to tweet when we’re winning!

Crap toilets? Awful food? Overpriced tickets? No, the real issue bothering football supporters is a dearth of wi-fi. It’s good to know the BBC hire football phone-in hosts so in touch with the average fan.

    The shittest ground in the Premiership, Fratton Park, has wi-fi.

    As if we ever needed any more evidence that Tim Lovejoy is a cnut.

    To be fair, if there was wi-fi I could access this page and tell you what absolute drive you write!

    If it wasn’t for technology you’d have nowhere to air your pointless views so have a think for a moment.

    I think the point of this is lost on you, Big Nige.

    Namely, people go to grounds to watch football, and the majority of people don’t give a shit about whether there is wifi or not, because they’re too busy watching football and not updating Twitter or whatever.

    I use it at half time to check the scores elsewhere, they’re not always announced at Fratton Park.

    Anyone at the match Tweeting or whatever should be hung. Gobshites.
