9. Blue Day

The Blue Day is a classic single recorded by English singer Madness frontman Suggs and players before the 1997 FA Cup Final. Three weeks after its release, the match staple on the Bridge climbed up to the 22nd position on the UK singles chart.

The only place to be
Every other Saturday
Is strollin' down the Fulham Road
Meet your mates and have a drink
Have a moan and start to think
Will there ever be a blue tomorrow?
We've waited so long
But we'd wait forever
Our blood is blue and
We would leave you never
And when we make it
It'll be together

Chelsea Chelsea, Chelsea Chelsea
We're gonna make this a Blue Day
Chelsea Chelsea, Chelsea Chelsea
We're gonna make this a Blue Day
We've got some memories
Albeit from the Seventies, when
Ossie & Co. restored our pride
Now we've got hope and a team, suddenly it's not a dream
We'll keep the Blue Flag flying high
We've waited so long
But we'd wait forever
Our blood is blue and
We would leave you never
And when we make it
It'll be together

We're gonna make this a Blue Day
Chelsea Chelsea, Chelsea Chelsea
We're gonna make this a Blue Day
Now even Heaven
Is Blue today, you should
Hear the Chelsea roar
Hear the Chelsea roar
Chelsea Chelsea, Chelsea Chelsea
We're gonna make this a Blue Day
Chelsea Chelsea, Chelsea Chelsea
We're gonna make this a Blue Day
Chelsea Chelsea, Chelsea Chelsea
We're gonna make this a Blue Day!

Over land and sea (and Leicester!)
We all follow the Chelsea
Onto victory!
All together now!
We all follow the Chelsea
Over land and sea (and Leicester!)
We all follow the Chelsea
Onto victory!

2. Blue is the Colour

The Pride of London's anthem, Blue is the Colour, was released in 1972. The creation of the iconic Chelsea chant pulled talent from fans and players alike.

It was written by Daniel Boone and Peter Lee Stirling, produced by Larry Page and sung by the 1970s squad. The song is just as popular as it was in the 1970s. Following its release, it became an instant hit record, topping the UK charts for 12 weeks.

Blue is the colour, football is the game
We're all together, and winning is our aim
So cheer us on through the sun and rain
'cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name!
Here at the Bridge, whether rain or fine
We can shine all the time
Home or away, come and see us play
You're welcome any day

Sing loud and clear until the game is done
Sing Chelsea, everyone!

1. Are there Chelsea chants against Liverpool?

Songs created by fans often feature hateful and inappropriate chanting. During a match against Liverpool at Anfield, the Blues' fans targeted their rivals with a vile chant aimed at the deadly tragedy of 1989. This prompted the team to condemn their fans' behaviour and the release of Liverpool's Away Supporters’ Guide.

2. Are there Chelsea chants about Arsenal?

While players duel on the green in every football match, rival teams engage in a fierce war of chants. The Blues' supporters have several songs targeting their London rivals. One such chant mocks Arsenal for not signing their number 10 midfielder, Mykhailo Mudryk, during his debut in 2023, as reported by Goal.

He flew in from Ukraine on Boehly's private plane,
Mudryk said to me: 'Have Arsenal won the Champions League?’
So I told him no, you know the place to go,
Then he said to me, "I want to lift number three.”

3. Are there Chelsea chants about Tottenham?

From Running Around Tottenham with Our European Cup to We Hate Tottenham, the Blues have an assortment of chants mocking their London rivals. According to the Daily Mail, the Blues' fans sang Tottenham Get Battered Everywhere They Go during the January 2024 World Darts Championship final match, mocking Spurs supporters.
