In November last year boss Jose Mourinho criticised the Chelsea faithful for being too quiet, claiming that playing at the Bridge is like “playing in an empty ground” – even though the ground was full.
The Blues have reportedly been looking at ways to improve crowd atmosphere through discussions for a long time on fan forums, and Bruce Buck has ruled out the option of playing crowd noise.
“Every club is looking to improve the matchday experience, but we can’t have recorded fan noise – our fans just wouldn’t accept that,” Buck was quoted by the London Evening Standard.
“We don’t have cheerleaders; we have to do what’s right for our home environment. You have to understand your market place.”
It would certainly be an embarrassing state of affairs if the West London outfit were to resort to such measures and an option that Chelsea have understandably dismissed.
