‘I’ll Look Like Fiddler On The Roof’ Former Chelsea Player Says He Will Not Shave Until Blues Win Another Game

Former Chelsea player turned pundit Jason Cundy has made a promise to not shave his ever-growing beard until Chelsea get their next win.

Cundy feels he may be growing his beard out for quite some time – he (somewhat jokingly) suggested that Mauricio Pochettino’s men will not taste victory until December, when they take on Manchester United.

In between now and then, the Blues are scheduled to square off against teams such as Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and reigning Champions Manchester City.

What did Jason Cundy say?

Speaking on TalkSPORT’s The Sports Bar, Cundy said: “I don’t know if I can go through with this. I haven’t had a shave for ages, about ten days, and I’ve got this beard and I tell you what it ain’t half itchy! It’s horrible, you’ve got to go through the itchy period to grow a beard.

“And I’m thinking now, to put myself through it, I might not shave until Chelsea get their next win. I won’t be shaving until December, I’ll look like Fiddler on the Roof!”

“I mentioned it to my wife over the weekend and she said she doesn’t like me with the beard. There are a couple of winnable games but we’ve had a lot of winnable games – we’ve got Fulham away and then Burnley away, on October 7th.

“This is where I’m worried. After the international break we’ve got Arsenal at home and Brentford at home. Then we’ve got your mob (Tottenham) away, then Man City at home, Newcastle away – by the way in between all that there’s another international break.

“I’m now into December, what am I going to look like? We then have Brighton at home, then Man United away. Ah, I’ve just seen it, that’s where the three points are going to come from!”

When will Chelsea get their next win?

While Cundy seems to believe that Chelsea next win will not come until they play Manchester United on December 6 (albeit with his tongue firmly wedged in his cheek), we believe it could come much sooner than this.

In fact, it may be as soon as this upcoming weekend, when the Blues square off against Unai Emery’s Aston Villa. While the Villans entered the 2023/24 season amid plenty of hype, they have already been beaten twice and have the joint-third worst defence in the division based on goals conceded.

Moreover, Chelsea will also take on Fulham and Burnley in their first two games in October – it will be a surprise to see them fail to win any of these three fixtures.
