So we're a few weeks into the new season and already optimism has been dashed, and the trials and tribulations of the most dedicated fans in sport have begun.
We all await for a season of either toiling at the bottom of the table or flirting with success which can lead to greater heart ache than failure.
After all it is the hope that kills you.
Fans make a difference though, the cliched 12th man often applies in football, especially significant in two-legged cup competitions. Two teams can be evenly matched but experts will often divide the two by favouring the side who play the second leg at home.
The songs and chants help our side as much as they intimidate the opposition, sometimes even disparage them from playing their natural game.
Here are the top 10 Chelsea songs all fans need to know when backing the Blues at Stamford Bridge this season.
* Warning *
Some of the songs may be offensive to some. Please note that they are football chants only meant as banter between rival supporters. If you may be offended, please avoid watching the videos or reading the lyrics.
