The timing of two videos released onto Twitter on Sunday night is certainly curious, but it does not paint Chelsea fans in a very good light. Again.

Whilst last season Chelsea shamed themselves in Europe with the infamous racist incident on the Paris Metro, the videos below show what has been going on for years when the Blues are in Europe.

The clips appear to be from the lead-up to the 2012 Champions League final between Chelsea and Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

They show Chelsea fans being super aggressive, throwing chairs and singing songs before one “fan” fights a waiter.

Unsurprisingly, the clips have been leapt upon by opposing teams’ fans, particularly Arsenal supporters disappointed at yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at The Emirates to Chelsea.

As is the way with the internet, these videos were quickly picked up and shared by accounts with huge followings on Twitter and Facebook and have already racked up huge numbers of views.
