Jose Mourniho, CFC coach celebratesJose Mourniho, CFC coach celebratesJust 19 hours after the lifting of the Barclays Premier League trophy inside a packed Stamford Bridge, many more thousands of fans lined the streets all the way from the stadium to Parson’s Green as the team paraded our cups.


It was the chance for players, staff and fans to thank each other and simply have a lot of fun, and there was an addition to the traditional open-top bus carrying the first team squad and another following behind for their families. With Chelsea’s Academy also double trophy winners in 2014/15, they had their own bus in the middle with images of their silverware on the sides.

 

The route was the now traditional one followed on each victory parade held since 2005. Many of those who watched the buses leave Stamford Bridge and set off east down Fulham Road were able to take advantage of the short cut through to New King’s Road to greet them again as they came back west.

 

Chelsea TV broadcasted fantastic shots from a helicopter high above during their live coverage and although the channel’s presenter, Jason Cundy, was the official master of ceremonies on the top deck of the first-team bus, he gave way for long spells to Didier Drogba who enthusiastically continued on from when he addressed the Stamford Bridge crowd after yesterday’s game.

With a scarf tied around his head, the striker led the singing with a baritone ‘Blue is the Colour’, ‘Bounce in a Minute’ and ‘Champions of England, we know what we are’.

John Terry took the microphone and told the supporters he thinks this has been his best season for personal form, adding:

‘We have waited five years for this, to see everyone out on the streets again after lifting the Premier League which is what it is all about. Thank you because you are the best fans and we love you!

‘We have this trophy back and we will look to win it again next season. It is down to these boys to keep winning it again for these fans.’

Petr Cech described the support and those on the bus as like his family and passed on some words from Diego Costa.

‘He wants to promise that next year he will score 30 goals but he doesn’t know how to say it in English!’ was the message.
