All aboard for Chelsea train jokes after Blues exit the Champions League

All aboard for Chelsea train jokes after Blues exit the Champions League

Chelsea are out of the Champions League after being held to a draw by 10 man Paris St Germain last night and their fans’ behaviour last month is forming the basis of a lot of jokes on the subject.

The refusal of a group of Chelsea supporters to allow a black man board a train in Paris was recorded and seen around the world - making it all the more ironic that a team from the French capital have now dumped the London side out of Europe’s premier club competition.

A number of memes and cartoons on the subject appeared on Twitter.

One group of fans went further - recording a parody video of their own to remind Chelsea that the Champions League train is now going on without them.

The vast majority of Chelsea fans were horrified by the racist behaviour of a small section of their group last month, but it looks like they will be reminded of the episode on a regular basis for some time to come.
