Chesterfield


Recommended Posts

Dagenham could have gone above them on goal difference today into the final play off position with a game left, but they lost. 

 

Looks unlikely it'll change next week, Chesterfield have a fairly easy on paper home game whereas Dagenham play Wrexham.

Even if they make it, they’ve got to come through two away games before they even reach Wembley. One of those will be either Solihull or Notts County for starters. Both of whom are in good form.

I hope they get back up tbh don't really mind Chesterfield. Looks like Paul Cook isn't the messiah after all though. They were well in the mix for the league title a few months back when he took over now their hanging on to that last play off spot which should have been secured by now.

Think their decline is more down to their star striker getting badly injured just as Cook came in rather than Cook himself tbh. He's been out since mid February yet is still the second highest scorer in the division.

Fun fact. In Persian-Farsi, the word "Chesterfield" very closely resembles the words "فیل", (pronounced "feel") which means elephant, and "چس", (pronounced "choss") which means fart. When pronounced together,  چس فیل, meaning elephant fart, sounds almost identical to Chesterfield. The place name became a joke in Iran when popcorn was introduced to the country through the Chesterfield popcorn brand, which obviously was ridiculed, but the name stuck. These days, Chesterfield in Iran means both elephant fart and popcorn. Popcorn is not terribly popular in Iran, though the sound it makes when the kernels burst is a guaranteed laugh for small kids nationwide.

 

 

Moral of the story is, Chesterfield FC is Elephant Fart Football Club.

Presumably then Sheffield must also mean some kind of fart as well?

Some kind of elephant. Shef "شف" unfortunately doesn't mean anything, though I'd be willing to bet expat Iranians use it to mean "chef" at times.

 

Moral of the story is, Sheffield Wednesday FC is Elephant Chef Wednesday Football Club

He's been poo for them. They've gone from challenging to the win the league to hanging on to the last play off place meaning they have to get through an extra play off round and having no home advantage in the play offs.
