Timing is everything in football. From strikers arriving to meet the ball at just the vital moment, to defenders stretching out a leg to block a goal-bound shot, doing things when the time is right is vital. However, it appears that the Chelsea marketing team have not received the memo… A hat-trick of offers on the same weekend a three-goal haul from Steven Naismith downed the Blues? Oh dear! Supporters on the club’s mailing list were treated to a horrid notification this morning from their beloved team, capping what had been a pretty awful 24 hours for anyone associated with the West London side. The result yesterday leaves the defending Premier League champions in 16th with only one win from five games. Manchester City are now 11 ahead of them. A few hat-tricks from Diego Costa may be needed.

No @ChelseaFC, I don’t want to know about ‘a hat-trick of offers’ in the online megastore. I’ve had enough of hat-tricks this weekend.
