    'I Love You, You Big Dummy!' Chelsea FanCast #532

    'I Love You, You Big Dummy!' Chelsea FanCast #532

    Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and Tony Glover to look back at Saturday's frustrating 3-3 draw at home to Southampton and look ahead to Tuesday's Champions League clash with Sevilla.


    On the show tonight we look at Frank's team selection; admire the fluidity of Werner, Havertz, Mount and Pulisic and roundly applaud Werner's two superb goals.


    But!! In part two we ask is Chelsea's defence the definition of madness! Are they just not good enough? Are the midfield just as culpable? Do we have to accept that Chelsea are like a Kevin Keegan team?


    In Part Three we look ahead to the Champions' League match against Sevilla on Tuesday. What is Sevilla's form like; who are the key players; are they the main threat in the group and who will Frank pick and how do we see it going.

    "Let the Celery Decide" Chelsea FanCast #529

    "Let the Celery Decide" Chelsea FanCast #529

    Stamford Chidge interviews his old mate, Walter Otton, cfcuk writer and author of "Stuck On You: a year in the life of a Chelsea supporter"; "Carefree! Chelsea Chants & Terrace Culture"; "The Red Hand Gang"; "Roe2Ro"; "Poppy" and "Shorts", to talk about his latest book "Let The Celery Decide"


    Chidge talks to Walter Otton about his latest book "Let The Celery Decide" where he poignantly and passionately recounts his journey from the Champions' League semi-final second leg against Barcelona to the Final in Munich.


    Chelsea's struggle to win the 'Holy Grail' mirror Walters own health struggles, but as ever, teamwork and mates help him through.


    A very moving chat with a wonderful writer and Chelsea supporter which reminds you as to why going to football is so important and why we miss it so much.


    The book is available from our very own Mark Worrall's Gate 17 publishing or from Amazon priced at £7.95


    Here's the summary from the back cover...


    “Brace yourself for an invigorating journey with a quite miraculous ending – and we’re not just talking about what happens on the pitch. Treasuring a one-nil lead, five thousand Chelsea supporters travel to Barcelona for the second leg of the semi-final of the European Cup.


     After the most extraordinary ninety minutes ever witnessed, the Blues know they will face Bayern Munich in the Final. Desperately pining for some consistent peace of mind after the Doctor had signed him off indefinitely, Walt’s excursions to both games are peppered with powerful honesty, stirring dreams and spontaneous connections. Join him as he blindly navigates through the brutal storm of life-changing health issues in what would end up being a glorious season.


     He’s lost his job; he might be losing his marbles – he’s a husband and a father clinging on to his kids, his faith and his marriage. Drinking with his friends George and Tall Paul, the three of them are tucked up for the day in a sun-drenched Munich beer garden. Fate puts in an appearance and suddenly there’s a spare ticket in the Chelsea end for the Final sitting right in Walter’s palm. Who goes to the match?


    ‘Let the Celery Decide’”

    ‘Chilled Well’ Chelsea FanCast #528

    ‘Chilled Well’ Chelsea FanCast #528

    Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Clayton Beerman and Dean Mears to look back at a satisfyingly chilled 4-0 win against Crystal Palace.


    On the show tonight, we discuss Ben Chilwell’s superb debut; the defence keeping a clean sheet; Kante getting back to his best and Jorginho bringing something oh and Havertz is silky smooth.


    In part two we ask with Jorghinho and Havertz impressing, where does this leave Mason Mount? Does Werner need to start as a striker rather than out wide? Is there genuinely pressure on Frank or is it just media gaslighting? And how close are Chelsea to being where we want them to be?


    In part three we check in with this week’s Chelsea FanCast Premier Predictions League, God help us and as this is Transfer Deadline Day, we ask who needs to stay, who needs to go and who needs to come in.


    In part four, we have this week’s edition of ‘In Off the Post’ where JK and I read out the emails and messages sent in by you the listener.
