    22 Signs You Will Forever Be A Chelsea Fan

    It's a hard life, when everyone hates you. But it's a burden we choose to bear. Our greatest curse, and our greatest blessing. We are the famous CFC!

    1. For starters: when people say "Chelsea is a girl's name," you know you'll never speak to them again.

    They will never be worth your time. Ever.

    2. And of course, we all know Eden Hazard is the next great thing in the Premier League.

    20. Whenever Liverpool fans bring up Torres, you automatically respond with "Andy Carroll."
