having been an avid chelsea season ticket holder i made my trip last saturday to the old stomping ground.
Upon finding my seat the same seat i've had for the last 4years there was an empty space and another bloke sat besides me.
Knowing these were season holders seat i said

'fancy not turning up for a game having a season ticket and all'

to which the bloke replied,

'well that belonged to my late wife'

me quite unwittingly replied

'O my gosh, i'm so sorry did no one else in the family want to come to the game'

'no,there all at the funeral'
