Despite Chelsea’s recent success on the pitch, we are generally quick to remind them that their club’s ‘illustrious history’ began in 2004, as reported by the Metro in April.

Their trophy cabinet has certainly seen more action than ours over the past decade but as any big club will attest, football didn’t begin in 2004.
It seems as though this notion is spreading across London to their fanbase after a Chelsea fan found himself at our museum, located at the Emirates Stadium.

That is something – no matter how much they brag about their recent and superficial success – Chelsea cannot offer their fans around the globe.
