    Chelsea FanCast #948 - Kerry Dixon

    Chelsea FanCast #948 - Kerry Dixon

    In a typically forthright and up front interview Kerry talks to Martin King & Stamford Chidge about his career at Chelsea; his relationship with Ken Bates; playing for England; his best goals and what it was like to hear 40,000 Chelsea supporters chanting “One Kerry Dixon” at Wembley when he was playing for Luton!
    With 193 goals to his name, Kerry Dixon is Chelsea’s third highest goal scorer of all time, behind only Bobby Tambling and Frank Lampard. Over nine seasons between 1983 and 1992, Kerry became one of the best loved players ever to appear for Chelsea.
    Following near relegation to the Third Division Kerry joined from Reading for £175,000 as John Neal sought to rebuild the team, Kerry scored 34 goals in his first season as Chelsea claimed the Second Division title.
    Scoring an iconic goal against Arsenal at Highbury in Chelsea’s first match back in the top flight, Kerry scored 36 goals to win the Golden Boot and took his Chelsea tally to 70 in just 101 games, earning a call up to the England squad in the process. Kerry was given a start against West Germany and responded by creating a goal for Bryan Robson before scoring two of his own as England beat the Germans for the first time in over a decade.
    A serious muscle injury in January 1986 hampered both Kerry and Chelsea’s tilt at winning the title and a mere two years later, Chelsea found themselves back in Division two. Although player unrest nearly led to Kerry’s departure, Chelsea and Kerry bounced back with Kerry scoring 25 league goals as he won the Second Division title for the second time. Kerry went on to score 26 goals on Chelsea’s return to Division One as we finished fifth, our highest position since 1970.
    In March 1992, Kerry’s 193rd, and final, goal in a Chelsea shirt was a a spectacular shot from the edge of the box to beat Norwich City. That summer he was sold for £575, 000 to Southampton
    But that wasn’t quite the final moment in the love affair between Chelsea and Kerry Dixon. When Chelsea faced Luton Town and Wembley for the 1994 FA Cup semi-final, lining up at centre-forward for Luton that day was a certain Kerry Dixon. At the end of the match that Chelsea won 2-0, Chelsea supporters massed broke off from their celebrations to pay a final tribute to one of the club’s favourite sons, 40, 000 voices rightly proclaiming that there really was ‘only one Kerry Dixon’. A fitting tribute to a true Chelsea legend.
    With 193 goals in total to his name, Dixon is Chelsea’s third highest goal scorer of all time, behind only Bobby Tambling and Frank Lampard. He is also eighth in the club’s all-time appearances list. His two Second Division championship medals being his only honours with the club.

    Went To Mow Kingsmeadow Episode 91- Talking Tactics

    This week Dean is joined by Ben, otherwise known as Medicine, for the first time this season to talk tactics.
    In Part One we discuss Chelsea's new look defensive set up, questioning the role of the full back and the partnership of Millie Bright and Kadeisha Buchanan. 
    Then in Part Two we move on to the midfield, debate the lone six vs the double pivot, ponder the roles of Jessie Fleming and Jelena Cankovic and wonder what moves might be made in January.  Plus we discuss the performances and roles of Niamh Charles and Lauren James.

    “Newcastle 1 New Brighton 0” Chelsea FanCast #947

    “Newcastle 1 New Brighton 0” Chelsea FanCast #947

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Mark Meehan to look back at Chelsea's third Premier League defeat in a row away to Newcastle.
    On the show tonight, in part one, we discuss Potter’s team selection, which I thought was ok; albeit the wrong formation. We also muse over Chelsea again stuck on the back foot, stuck in their own half, creating nothing. In a clueless performance with seemingly no confidence, understanding, tactical plan or ambition, we ask is this on Potter or the players?
    In part two, we ask if Potter has turned us in to New Brighton? Is he in fact Graham Potterfield? With Chelsea exhibiting relegation form: dare we think the unthinkable? And finally, we give an honest appraisal of Potter’s first 2 months in charge and ask where do we go from here, and what would we do if we were Todd Boehly?
    In part three we have loads of emails to read in this week's Chelsea FanCast Post Bag.

    Chelsea FanCast Preview Show #946

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Dayne Whittle to look back at Chelsea's 2-0 defeat away to Man City in the Carabao Cup and ahead to another tough match against Newcastle on Saturday.
    In part one we discuss a better performance against City but a poor result featuring Chelsea’s hardy perennials – profligacy & sloppiness, but the shining light was a super performance from 18 year old Lewis Hall. Is there a case for more academy players get a game and with one more game before the World Cup kicks off we give an appraisal of Graham Potter. We also have a look at the Chelsea players going to the World Cup, including Conor Gallagher, who pleasingly got selected for thr England squad.
    In part two, we look ahead to Saturday's match against Newcastle and Chidge reveals his team selection. We look at Chelsea's recent record at St James’ Park and Howe’s record v Chelsea. Saturday promises to be another very tough match with Newcastle riding high in third place and if Chelsea lose their fourth domestic match in a row, they might be in10th place by Monday; on the bright side, win it and we could be in 5th! With all that in mind, we discuss howwe see it going and wrap up with our predictions.

Decumaria ,

Love you guys

Love your name: Went to mow King’s Meadow. (What a great job. I’m a horticulturist and always wanted to be head groundskeeper in charge of a beautiful grass pitch). Love Chelsea women. Love Emma Hayes. Love Chelsea fans. Love you guys. You are so wonderfully weird. None of this technical pretentious none sense, pretending to be neutral or not and predicting bull. (No body can predict football although I knew England would win the EUROs because they played with the unstoppable belief of the USWNT). You guys are unapologetic Blues fans. So am I. Love listening.
