    Stamford Chidge and Jonathan Kydd are joined by Dan Silver to look back at the 0-0 against Liverpool at Anfield.On the show tonight, we discuss a better performance and an ok result. Chelsea shwoing signs of life, enhanced by a lovely cameo from new signing Mudryk. And with Chelsea looking better going forward is this down to increased confidence or are Potter's ideas beginning to sink in?In part two, we praise Silva AGAIN! Especially in helping out new signing Badashiale who has impressed on his two appearances so far, But when James and Chilwell return, will Potter revert to a back three and wing backs or keep the back four?With Mount continuing to struggle we ask is it time for him to have a break and analyse the burden he has been under and reflect on the other potential reasons for his dip in form.We also show appreciation for Cesar Azlilicueta reaching the milestone of his 500th match for Chelsea, a feat never achieved by an overseas player for Chelsea and only the 6th Chelsea player of all time to achieve the landmark.And with the possibility of Chelsea's season turning around with the return of James, Chilwell, Felix, Fofana, Kante, Zakaria and the additions of Mudryk, Madueke, Fofana with more signings to come hopefully.We wrap up in part three with this week's emials from our listeners.

    Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd and Mark Meehan take a look back at the 2005-06 Chelsea season.In part two the boys pick up the season in January with Chelsea top of the league and 11 points clear of Man Utd. Confidence for a back-to-back Premier League title was understandably high together with the chance of a first 'double' for the club, adding an FA Cup and another tilt on the Champions' League having made the semi-finals in the previous two seasons.Chelsea made hard work of dispatching Huddersfield in the FA Cup round 3 before dropping their first points in the league at home to Charlton. A 1-1 draw in the FA Cup fourth round at Everton was followed by a 1-1 draw away to Villa. Three matches without a win having broken the club record of 10 consecutive wins beforehand? Was this a wobble?A comprehensive 2-0 defeat of Liverpool at home with Crespo outstanding, proved otherwise, and everything seemed back on track with a 4-1 thumping off Everton in the FA Cup replay. But a 3-0 defeat away to Middlesbrough was one of the shocks of the season and came out of nowhere and not the ideal preparation for the Champions League round of 16 tie against Barcelona,In the first leg, Chelsea were robbed by a terrible refereeing decision when Del Horno was sent off for 'being in Messi's way' and although Chelsea put in a brilliant performance when down to 10 men, Barcelona won 2-1. 58 home games and a first defeat in 90 minutes for Jose and only our 3rd home defeat in Europe. Of course this proved a mountain to climb in the second leg and Chelsea were duly knocked out by the eventual winners of the trophy.Before that Chelsea was rocked by the untimely death of club legend and 'King of Stamford Bridge' Peter Osgood. An emotionally charged match against Spurs gave everyone a chance to say farewell to Ossie and William Gallas' last minute winner rounded the day off perfectly. Chelsea entered April 14 points ahead of Liverpool and 15 ahead of Man Utd. Supporters were confidently weighing up when the title would be won. A superb performance beating West Ham having gone a goal down and reduced to 10 men all but confirmed matters and beating Man Utd, by then our nearest rivals with 3 matches to go would seal the title. Before that the matter of an FA Cup semi-final against Liverpool needed to be won. Thanks to a limp performance and some poor finishing, Liverpool knocked Chelsea out of another cup competition but a week later, Chelsea made amends with a Joe Cole inspired demolition of Man Utd to be crowned back-to-back Champions.

    Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd and Mark Meehan take a look back at the 2005-06 Chelsea season.Chelsea entered their centenery season as Premier League Champions with a new kit and a new badge to celebrate it. Hopes were high that more trophies would be won this season with the 'Special One' at the helm, but could we be become back-to-back Champions?Chelsea secured their first trophy of the season in a 2-1 win against nemesis Arsenal in the Community Shield; notable mainly for Drogba scoring against Arsenal, in a final and bullying their defence in the process. Our defence of the title could not have started better with 7 wins, no goals conceded and 13 scored. By the end of September Chelsea were already 10 points clear of their nearest rivals, Man Utd, at the top of the table.The Champions League was proving a little more troublesome, with Chelsea in the same group as Liverpool, the current holders. While points were dropped at Anfield in a 0-0 draw, Chelsea turned up at Anfield a couple of days later in the league to inflict a 4-1 defeat on them. Liverpool's biggest home defeat since 1969 and Chelsea's biggest win at Anfield.The only blip in the first half of the season were away defeats to Real Betis in the Champions' League, a 1-0 away defeat to Man Utd and Charlton knocking us out of the Carling Cup on penalties. Typically, Jose claimed that our impregnable home form remained in tact as losing on penalties didn't count!December was negotiated expertly, including the first 'Double' over Arsenal for the first time in 36 years in a 2-0 win, the last time we would play at Highbury. Chelsea finished the year top of the league 11 points clear with 55 points, above Utd on 44 and equalling last season's points tally and record at this stage of the season, with one draw and one defeat. Chelsea had played 38 games in 2005 and won 101 points a remarkable feat not told enough. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Chelsea author Mark Meehan to look back at Chelsea's 2004-05 season.In part two, we pick up the story in January 2005. Under the management of Jose Mourinho, Chelsea were top of the league, 7 points clear with 55 points, the largest points tally at this stage in the PL ever, and were fighting for trophies on all fronts with qualification for the Champions' League round of 16 achieved with 13 points and a Carling Cup semi-final against Man Utd to look forward to in the New Year as well as the FA Cup.All eyes were on Stamford Bridge as we took on Man Utd in the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final. A cagey 0-0 with Utd using every trick in the book was followed by a 2-1 win at Old Trafford to seal a place in the final at the Millenium stadium in Cardiff. The arrival of Abramovich and Mourinho notwithstanding, this was Chelsea's 12th cup semi-final in 12 seasons and the first time defeat had been inflicted on Alex Ferguson's Utd in a domestic semi-final.Back in the Premier League Chelsea passed the stern 'can they do it on a cold night in Blackburn' test standing up, literally to the physical intimidation meted out by Mark Hughes dirty side. Arguably this was the match that sealed the title for Chelsea, at least in terms of belief. February and March brought a plethora of high profile and must win matches which was to become the norm for Chelsea througout Abramovich's tenure. Newcastle knocked us out of the FA Cup, ending the pursuit of all four trophies. Barcelona beat Chelsea 2-1 at the Nou Camp in a controversial match where we had the upper hand until Drogba was sent off by Anders Frisk for a dubious second yellow. And in the space of a week, Chelsea defeated Liverpool in the Carling Cup final having gone 1-0 down after a Riise goal on 1 minute and rescued by a Steve Gerrard goal on 79 minutes, before Drogba and Kezman settled matters in a 3-2 win.March saw the return of Barcelona to Stamford Bridge and one of the greatest matches ever seen in the club's 100 year history as Chelsea stormed to a 3-0 lead inside 20 minutes only to be pegged back by a remarkable Ronaldinho goal which left the crowd silent in consternation, before John Terry ensured a 4-2 win on the night and a 5-4 win on aggregate. A quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich was Chelsea's reward and another classic played out in the first leg at Stamford Bridge, almost matching the Barcelona match for excitement and quality, with one of Frank Lampard's best goals for the club a highlight in a 4-2 win. Chelsea got the job done in the last match to be played at the Olympiastadion albeit with a couple of late goals from Bayern to cause more anxiety than we needed.Attention moved back to the Premier League. Would Chelsea win it against Fulham on the 50th anniversary to the day of our our first league title? Had we not drawn at home to Arsenal we would have, but we were destined to wait until the Bolton away match, just as Jose Mourinho had predicted months ago. The small matter of the club's second and consecutive Champions' League semi-final against Liverpool preceded Bolton. Thanks to a solitary ghost goal by Luis Garcia at Anfield, Chelsea were denied a final appearance again and our modern rivalry and enmity with Liverpool and Rafa Benitez was confirmed.It should have been crushing, but in truth it wasn't, because a few days earlier, Chelsea defeated Bolton thanks to two Frank Lampard goals to lift the Premier League for the first time in their history. Many of us never believed we'd see the day; tears were shed, friends were embraced and a massive party in the Kings Road ensued. Chelsea's greatest ever season? No doubt! Hosted on Acast.

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Chelsea author Mark Meehan to look back at Chelsea's 2004-05 season.On the 2nd June 2004, something very special happened at Chelsea. Jose Mourinho arrived proclaiming himself the 'Special One' and things at Chelsea would arguably never quite be the same again. Bolstered by the transfers of Petr Cech, Paulo Ferreira, Arjen Robben, Didier Drogba and Ricardo Carvalho hopes were high that Chelsea might go one better than the 2nd place in the league from the previous season and win their first Premier League title; their first league title for 50 years and in what would be their centenary year. The bouyant mood of the summer seemed justified as Chelsea remained unbeaten in all competitions until October 16th. But after the 1-0 away defeat to Man City, they picked up the pace again, knocking Arsenal off top spot on November 6th after a 1-0 win at home to Everton.Critics and naysayers accused Chelsea of being boring and functional as they ground out a lot of 1-0 wins, but once the flying wingers of Damien Duff and Arjen Robben returned from injury, Chelsea went up through the gears putting four past opponents regularly and playing scintillating football in the process. Equally important, they had not been beaten by title rivals such as Arsenal, Man Utd and Liverpool and had dismissed bottom half teams with relative ease, banana skins and glorious unpredictability seemingly banished by our 'special' manager.By the end of the year Chelsea were top of the league, 7 points clear with 55 points, the largest points tally at this stage in the PL ever, and were fighting for trophies on all fronts with qualification for the Champions' League round of 16 achieved with 13 points and a Carling Cup semi-final against Man Utd to look forward to in the New Year as well as the FA Cup.Historically, Chelsea supporters would be asking the question "what could possibly go wrong" with knowing cynicism but at the turn of the year many genuinely felt, absolutely nothing.

    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 SouthamptonBut 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. Hosted on Acast.

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.

    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.

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!

Subjected to racist abuse on the terraces, Paul had to show huge strength of character and dignity to win over too many of his own supporters.Highlights of Paul's all too brief Chelsea career included a hat-trick against Swansea, but he played a crucial part in the legendary 4-4 draw away to Sheffield Wednesday in the Milk Cup in 1985, coming on as a second half substitute with Chelsea 3-0 down. Paul scored twice, his first after just eleven seconds, as Chelsea salvaged a remarkable draw.In arguably one of his most forthright, honest and moving interviews yet, Paul talks about his time as one of John Neal's great side; the players, the matches and the goals and his struggles with racism, drug addiction and homelessness after football.

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Chelsea authors Mark Meehan and Mark Worrall to look back at Chelsea's 2003-04 season.In part two we pick up the story in the New Year and as is traditional the focus was on the FA Cup. It took a replay to get past Watford and then a fraught 1-0 win away to lowly Scarbrough before a 5th round tie against our nemesis Arsenal. Jose Antonio Reyes two goals in the second half make it four years in a row that Arsenal knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup. Sickening, and made worse by a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the League days later. Would we ever beat Arsenal? At that moment it seemed unlikley.Meanwhile, Chelsea were progressing to the Champions League quarter finals courtesy of a 1-0 win away to Stuttgart Chelsea's 16th away win of the season and a new record. But who would their opponents be? Arsenal of course!Chelsea drew the first leg at home 1-1 in a cagey affair where Desailly was sent off. But could Chelsea do what no team had managed to do this season and beat Arsenal? In one of the most dramatic and memorable matches in the club's history, Chelsea won 2-1 with Wayne Bridge's winning goal (that sent us out of control) three minutes time meaning 17 games of hurt were now over. Arsenal players were on their knees and in tears and disbelief at the final whistle. Claudio Ranieri was in tears too and we were ecstatic. Joyous. The casualty of our European success was the league where a 0-0 draw at home to Middlesbrough, a 3-2 defeat away to Villa and 0-0 draw at home to Everton ended our title hopes. It all came down to the Champions' League semi-final, against unfancied Monaco, managed by former blue Didier Deschamps.In the away leg, under pressure Ranieri who had been called a 'dead man walking' for several weeks now, completely lost the plot. Not helped by having to play Ambrosio due to Cudicin's lengthy spell injured and some extraordinarily bizzarre substitutions when we should have held out for a 1-1 draw, the 3-1 defeat left Chelsea a mountain to climb in the second leg. This proved to be the case although Chelsea were unlucky to concede a goal thanks to Ibarra's hand on the stroke of half-time when 2-0 up and looking good. Ulitmately Chelsea and Ranieri had blown it in the first leg.A good 1-1 draw and a 1-0 defeat of Leeds to relegate them was enough to secure Chelsea's highest league position since 1955, but this was not enough for Abramovich as Ranieri's walk came to an end a few weeks later.

Roman Abramovich bought debt ridden Chelsea for £60m and then embarked on the biggest spending spree ever seen; £111m on 11 players including Glen Johnson; Wayne Bridge; Damien Duff; Geremi; Juan Sebastien Veron; Joe Cole; Adrian Mutu; Hernan Crespo and Claude Makalele. Surely this woudl mean a serious tilt at Chelsea's first league title since 1955?Claudio Ranieri remained manager and he must have felt like a kid in a sweet shop. The new look Chelsea started well with their first surprise defeat at home to Besiktas in the Champions' League and a less surprising but routinely disappointing defeat away to Arsenal in October. Nevertheless, Chelsea were top of the league in October and November with some impressive wins against Newcastle and Man Utd in the league and a 4-0 drubbing away to Lazio in the Champions League.However, December brought a couple of blips with the 2-1 defeat at home to Bolton and 4-2 defeat at Charlton which left Chelsea in 3rd at the end of the year. We had also been knocked out of the Carling Cup by Aston Villa who were third from bottom at the time.This was not what Roman Abramovich expected having spent a fortune on players, even though Chelsea had accrued their biggest points total ever for that stage of the season. Rumours abounded that Abramovich, aided by new Chief Executive Peter Kenyon were on the look out for a new manager, not helped with Sven Goran Erikson spotted next to Abramovich in the director's box. Maybe Ranieri had too many good players to choose from and as ever, could not resist the urge to tinker?All this while the best performing players were all players who were at the Club before Abramovich arrived, with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Frank Lampard and John Terry all prominent.So, all to play for in the second half of the season, but could Chelsea hunt down Arsenal, who, ominously had yet to be beaten in the season thus far.

    “From SALT to Salzburg” Chelsea FanCast #929

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Clayton Beerman to look back at Graham Potter's first game in charge against Salzburg and Todd Boehly getting salty in New York.In part one we discuss Todd Boehly's interview at the SALT Conference in New York this week. This is the first we've heard on the 'Boehly Plan'; should he have spoken to the football media & supporters first rather than a bunch of financiers and businessmen? Was there equivocation regarding a return to the ESL? Why all the furore about the All-Star game and is the multi-club model a good idea?In part two we look back at Chelsea's oh so familiar 1-1 draw in the Champions' League against Salzburg. Potter's team selection and formation raised a few eyebrows and while there was more energy, as expected, chances were squandered and defensive frailties cost us. It all seemed a bit 'meet the new boss, same as the old boss'. With Mount looking back to his old self and Broja impressing as a substitute there may be the first seeds of hope, but how long will it take Potter to mould this side into something resembling a successful Chelsea side and can he deliver Top 4 to Boehly? We wrap up with some great emails to read out. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Alex Churchill and Adam Newson from Football.London to discuss what led up to Thomas Tuchel leaving Chelsea and will Graham Potter's appointment deliver the success the owners want.In part one, we ask if Thomas Tuchel's sacking was inevitable with the relationsip with the new owners irreconcilable? Was it down to the owner's naievity and interference? How culpable was Tuchel and what was the players role? We also pay tribute to Tuchel's 19 months at the club and the legacy he leaves.In part two, we discuss Graham Potter's appointment as manager. Is Potter the answer? He's good potentially but unproven at elite level. What should Potter's priorities be and what can we expect from him in terms of players and playing style. And finally we ask is the owner's long term vision for the club compatible with success and what actually is the long term vision? Our GDPR privacy policy was updated on August 8, 2022.
