Really, really naff

I mean I don’t think I need to say much here, just check this out and weep. Or laugh, whatever.

Stamford Bridge’s newest addition will open tomorrow (Wednesday) when Frankie’s Sports Bar and Grill begins serving food.

Frankie’s is an Italian bar and grill, and is the result of the collaboration between champion jockey Frankie Dettori and world-renowned chef Marco Pierre White.

The new restaurant stands where the Blues bar presided last season and offers an array of Italian cuisine, including pizzas and pasta dishes, as well as meat dishes such as burgers and steaks, at reasonable prices in a family friendly environment.

They did the same thing last summer, gutting the imaginatively named Shed Bar, a hugely popular pre-match pub (with pool table) which did beambacks for away games, and renaming it Blues Bar, complete with wanky mood lighting (without pool table). Obviously if they had just kept it the way it was they would still be bringing in a shitload of cash on matchday and wouldn’t have to relaunch something every season. I can’t even be arsed to type any sort of scathing criticism, because this act in itself says it all about the direction of the club. It’s just a bit shit really, isn’t it? There’s only room for one midgety Italian in the collective hearts of Chelsea fans, and it certainly isn’t reserved for a Milanese gooner and his business empire.

By the way, after transcribing an interview with Pierre-White, I can sensationally reveal that he is a boring cunt.

  1. Think of the bright side. It might have a pool table, and they may even show the beam backs.

  2. It’s as if they are trying to kill you, bit by little bit.

    At least Lampard will be able to afford to eat there.

  3. See I can understand why the club wants to tap the corporate pound a bit, and in some cases I don’t mind it. What bothers me is when it takes away from the experience of their biggest customer – the regular supporter. It’s not as if they don’t have enough facilities for the more well-heeled fan or hungry local already. Why do we need two Marco fucking Pierre White restaurants in a football ground? It’s just daft.
