Actually it was just a translation of Bill's remark ......however I can understand the drinking after watching the game....I'm feeling vaguely suicidal this morning about conte staying and our future in general....do we even have one....Haha yes of course, it was meant to be a joke about grammar v grandma because someone on another thread had been talking about their grandma signing for Spurs. But if you have to explain a joke then it's obviously not a very good joke, so apologies. In my defence I had been drinking heavily by that point!
I agree it is a really odd turn of phrase. I am minded to think it is some thick youngster with a marketing degree.For a club who are aware of the connotations of the word gas and the history of it and the fact that it's very common knowledge that Chelsea fans do the hiss sound when they play Spurs I am very sceptical
Not the first time the official account has taken shots at Spurs by the way.
Plus who the fuck says, the gas is on, bringin the heat anyway
Dunno if I am too long in the tooth or just hardened to it but it doesn’t bother me in the slightest - it is all gesturing macho bollocks unlike in the 70/80’s when there was genuine hostility and menace - how can a genuine racist/antisemite support Chelsea when they are bankrolled to all their recent success by a Jewish billionaire and 90% of the 1st team squad are foreign or black?Well you then have a duty to report the area you saw it and indeed the time. I saw supporters extend their arms when chanting the clubs name but I personally don’t see that as a Nazi salute that is unless I am naive or have witnessed it at ground after ground.
It really is about time that reality was accepted and more and more clubs will become very rich peoples play things so unless Spurs can join that elite club taking the morale high ground will not deliver success
Clubs don’t necessarily raise their game they play to their potential whereas the potential currently at Spurs is not up there
As for being clubs biggest games being against Tottenham the supporters will see it that way but I very very much doubt that to the majority of Chelsea players for instance, see Spurs as anything other than just another London team
See how easy it is?Is that their official club account ?
Edit. See it is …. Unbelievable
We all kneel to kick out racism, wear it on the sleeves and this shower do that
How a Jewish businessman ever bought that club is beyond me
We canThis Chelsea team have looked disjointed and moody for weeks. They play spurs and then they are a different team, they just get up for playing against us. Ziyech nearly even smiled FFS.
Would just love to beat them a few times to break this awful cycle. Why can't we have shiny things too?
Couldn’t agree more … I find the whole thing a bit baffling and slightly disturbingSee how easy it is?
I think Roman bought the club because he preferred the King's Road area of West London to the High Road area of Tottenham!
That said, I assume he knew fuck all about their vile breed of fan before he bought them.
What's shocking is, that he remained prepared to bankroll the fucking Nazis when he MUST'VE realised at some point down the line what he'd bought into...
Maybe 'Hissing' doesn't translate into Russian, and he didn't understand the implications....
or maybe, as I fear, he did, but doesn't REALLY care!
Considering there are so many other heat sources available these days, it's odd they chose this one to STOKE THE FIRE!!I would say the same but “the gas is on, bringing the heat” is not a phrase I’ve ever heard and that’s suspicious to me. Particularly the first part of the phrase
Considering there are so many other heat sources available these days, it's odd they chose this one to STOKE THE FIRE!!
let's be honest, ANY mention of Gas/Ovens, Heat, or Burning... when playing SPURS smacks of A CLUB who know EXACTLY What it's referring to.... (I say 'the club' because that surely involves the STAFF Twatter representative that wrote it)

I follow Tottenham for my love of primarily football I have no real interest in opposing fans - race, religion, political persuasion , gender, sexual orientation or the football team you support we all have the same right to exist . That said I’m not going to passively stand by and be abused by anyone!!
If we had a full strength side it might of been a different story. I think Conte has trying to make a statement with his choice of players tbh
