Jason Cundy says he has no plans to shave until Chelsea win their next game, although he fears he will make a big mistake.
After a poor 2022/23 season which saw them finish 12th in the Premier League, Chelsea got off to a slow start with just five points from their opening five league matches.
In fact, this season has seen them make their second-worst start to a season in the Premier League with just one win – a 3-0 win over Luton, who are yet to score a point – to their name.
After ten days without a razor, former Chelsea player Cundy is growing a beautiful beard, even though he suffers from an itchy face.
But with Mauricio Pochettino’s men in trouble, in a show of solidarity of sorts, Cundy has decided to endure the itch until his team secures another victory.
But watching Chelsea’s matches, as well as the international breaks in October and November, Cundy fears he will be forced to grow his beard for three months.
“I don’t know if I can continue with this… I haven’t shaved in ages, like ten days, and I have this beard and I tell you it’s not half itchy!” » Cundy said on The Sports Bar.
“It’s horrible, you have to go through the itching period to grow a beard?
“And I’m thinking now, to get through this, maybe I won’t shave until Chelsea get their next win. I won’t shave until December, I’ll look like Fiddler on the Roof!”
Sports Bar host Jamie O’Hara said Cundy now needs to put an end to this now that he has spoken out about it on national radio.
“I spoke to my wife about it this weekend and she said she didn’t like me with the beard…” Cundy added as he looked at Chelsea’s match schedule.
Aston Villa (M) – “It’s probably a point… I’m not convinced we’ll get the win.”
Brighton (H) – “I think we are eliminated from the Carabao Cup.”
“There are a few winnable games, but we’ve had a lot of winnable games – we’ve Fulham away and then Burnley awayon October 7,” Cundy added.
“Here comes the absolute killer, there’s an international break. I can’t get through the international break.”
Failure to win would extend Cundy’s beard game for more than a month, and the fixtures show no signs of slowing down in terms of difficulty level after the October internationals.
“That’s where I’m concerned,” Cundy said. “After the international break, we Arsenal at home And Brentford at home.
“So we have your crowd (Tottenham) awaySO Man City at home, Newcastle away – by the way, between all this, there is another international break.
“It’s now December, what will I look like? Then we’ll have Brighton at homeSO Man United away. Ah, I just saw it, that’s where the three points are going to come from!”
