As some of you may have seen, Chelsea drew 1-1 with Irish Premier League side Bohemians in their opening pre-season game. However, there may be a few of you that didn’t get to watch the game after the 5th Stand App used by Chelsea to stream the game to mobile devices crashed on Wednesday evening.
The problem caused frustration among Chelsea fans, who vented it towards the club’s official Twitter account after they tweeted out a statement apologising to fans.
We’d like to apologise for problems encountered by some of our supporters using our 5th Stand app last night during the match… https://t.co/8e8HIjTgxU

For those of you who missed the game, here is what happened.
Chelsea started the game the brighter of the two sides and even opened the scoring in the 8th minute through Michy Batshuayi. However, the Blues were pegged by a late Bohemians equaliser through trialist Eric Molloy in the 89th minute.
Here is a selection of tweets from fan who were frustrated with the club, asking them to make the pre-season fixtures free to view:
Expecting my refund within the next 48 hours.

Well it’d be a lot easier and convenient to make the next game free for this that paid for this one. Instead of having to get a refund. ???????????????
