    50 Years of Chelsea: 1998-99 Pt 2

    The Chelsea FanCast looks back, season by season, to 50 Years of Chelsea history from 1970 to the present day.Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd and Mark Meehan to look back at the 1998-99 season.In Pt 2 we pick up the season in January with Chelsea top of the Premier League and hopes high for their first league title since 1955.Chelsea got past Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup 3rd round, helped by a flying hot dog but their unbeaten run came to an end away to Arsenal. The 2-1 home win against Liverpool will forever be remembered for the spat between Graeme Le Saux and Robbie Fowler but goals were drying up in the absence of Gus Poyet and Tore Andre Flo through injury. Chelsea wobbled in March with an unlucky defeat to Man Utd in the FA Cup and then an unfortunate 1-0 home defeat to West Ham. But this was a mere precursor to what happened in April when Real Mallorca knocked then out of the European Cup Winners Cup semi-final and then a 2-2 draw at home to Leicester courtesy of a Steve Guppy goal all but ended the title challenge.The season seemed like a massive disappointment going so close to winning the title and finishing 3rd just 4 points behind Man Utd and being knocked out at the quarter final of both the League and FA Cups and the semi-final of the Cup Winners Cup. But in truth only 3 league defeats was our best ever performance to date and only 6 clubs had ever done this in a season. Crucially for next season it was Chelsea's first Champions League qualification; their second equal highest finish ever; highest average attendance since 1971/72; most clean sheets and lowest number of goals conceded in the top flight.But the feeling festered that maybe Chelsea had blown their best chance of a league title in decades. If only Casaraghi, Poyet and Flo had not been injured? If only Vialli had bought another striker in January? If only Chelsea hadn't dropped points against Blackburn, West Ham, Boro, Sheffield Wednesday and Leicester.If only...it was that kind of season.

    The Chelsea FanCast looks back, season by season, to 50 Years of Chelsea history from 1970 to the present day.Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd and Mark Meehan to look back at the 1998-99 season.3 months after the end of Chelsea's most successful season since 1971, they started the 1998-99 season by winning their third European trophy, the UEFA Super Cup, beating the mighty Real Madrid 1-0. Hope's naturally were very high for the season and with the signings of Pierluigi Casaraghi, Albert Ferrer, Brian Laudrup and World Cup winner Marcel Desailly, many thought that Chelsea might challenge for their first League title since 1955.The first half of the season seemed to confirm this view as Chelsea went on a 21 match unbeaten run and the 2-0 defeat of Spurs at White Hart Lane in December put them top of the Premier League at the end of the year.But, Chelsea were unlucky with injuries with Casaraghi's career ending injury against West Ham in November followed by Laudrup's departure to Copenhagen and then Gus Poyet's injury on Boxing Day denying Chelsea their cutting edge. Thankfully Gianfranco Zola was in impressive for, but would that be enough? See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.

    50 Years of Chelsea: 1997-98 Pt.2

    The Chelsea FanCast looks back, season by season, to 50 Years of Chelsea history from 1970 to the present day.Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Mark Meehan and Dayne Whittle to look back at the 1997-98 season.The 1997-98 season was described by Chelsea Historian Rick Glanvill as “turbulently successful” and it is hard to disagree and in Part Two we review from January to the end of the season.In January 1998, Chelsea were 3rd in the league having at one stage reached 2nd and still in the Coca-Cola Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup with everything very much still to play for in the second half of the season.Tradition dictates that the first match in the New Year was the FA Cup 3rd round and Chelsea, the FA Cup holders were pitted against Manchester United, our recent Cup nemesis. None of us, however, could have predicted the insanity that ensued that day. 0:3 down at half time; 0:5 on 74 minutes and then a Graeme Le Saux worldy and two goals by Vialli made it 3:5 with only a few minutes to go and gave us hope. Well actually they didn't really!In the next match Chelsea made amends by knocking out Ipswich in the Coca-Cola cup, again after extra time and penalties, resulting in a semi-final tie against Arsenal. Due to the peculiarity of the fixture list this meant Chelsea would play Arsenal at Highbury in the Coca-Cola Cup, followed by another visit to Highbury in the league and then the return Coca-Cola Cup at the Bridge.Chelsea's record against Arsenal at the time was very poor, so many supporters were hoping for the best but expecting the worst. A 2-1 defeat in the 1st leg thanks to a Mark Hughes goal kept us in the tie. But no one expected what would happen after the 2:0 league defeat. Ruud Gullit was sacked after failing to agree a new contract and Gianluca Vialli was announced as his replacement; his first match in charge being the Coca-Cola Cup semi-final at home to Arsenal.Having toasted his appointment with his teammates with a glass of champagne before kick-off, Chelsea put in a superb performance beating Arsenal 3-1 to reach another final at Wembley. They duly dispatched Middlesbrough in the final, again after extra time, to lift their second trophy in two seasons.Before the Coca-Cola Cup final, Chelsea had seen off Real Betis in the European Cup Winners' Cup final, thanks to Flo's two goals in the away leg. All eyes were now focussed on European glory and as a result the league form suffered.Against Vicenza in the first leg Chelsea lost 1:0, not a bad away result in Europe, so hopes were high for the second leg back at the Bridge. Hope made way to despair when Vicenza went 2:0 up on aggregate, but Chelsea stormed back, cheered on by one of the noisiest crowds ever experienced at the Bridge. Poyet and Zola put us on level terms with Vicenza and Mark Hughes sealed it with a stunning header to pass to himself to score on the volley.The season would now end with the chance to win the European Cup Winners' Cup for the second time in the club's history. Stockholm would be the venue, Stuttgart the opponents and with Chelsea supporters in all four sides of the tiny stadium, Gianfranco Zola came on with 19 minutes to go and scored a sublime goal with his second touch to win Chelsea the trophy. 1997-98 was a remarkable season with great players like Vialli, Hughes and Zola scoring some wonderful goals; two trophies in one season for the first time ever and the shock sacking of Ruud Gullit. No wonder it is one of the most memorable Chelsea seasons of all time.To help us celebrate 50 Years of Chelsea we've partnered with 3Retro who have a superb collection of Chelsea retro gear and are offering 10% OFF when you use the 3RETRO10 code and if you order over £50 of merch you get FREE UK delivery.

But the senior members of the side, Vialli and Hughes, reminded everyone of their experience and class and got Chelsea off to an encouraging start to the season where we were rarely out of the top four. It was the cup competitions where Chelsea thrived though and none more so than the European Cup Winners' Cup. Slovan Bratislava were routinely dispatched and in the next round Chelsea faced Norwegian part-timers Tromso, beyond the Arctic Circle. One of the most surreal and fondly remembered games in Chelsea's history played out when Chelsea lost 3:2 in a blizzard. In the Coca-Cola Cup, it took penalties to beat Blackburn Rovers and extra-time to beat Southampton and in the league four matches are still remembered by anyone who was there. Nigel Winterburn's last minute goal in the 2:3 home defeat to Arsenal; Patrik Berger's hat-trick in the 4:2 defeat against Liverpool and old foe David Ellery; the 6:1 at the Lane where Tore-Andre Flo's hat-trick was ably assisted by Zola as we annihilated Spurs in a match still sung about today and the 0:0 home draw against a Leeds United side managed by George Graham where they tried to kick Chelsea off the pitch. As the year drew to a close, Chelsea were 3rd in the league having at one stage reached 2nd and still in the Coca-Cola Cup and European Cup Winners' Cup with everything very much still to play for in the second half of the season, but trouble was brewing…To help us celebrate 50 Years of Chelsea we've partnered with 3Retro who have a superb collection of Chelsea retro gear and are offering 10% OFF when you use the 3RETRO10 code and if you order over £50 of merch you get FREE UK delivery.

Well, that was the thinking anyway!England's 1966 World Cup final hat-trick hero, Geoff Hurst is appointed manager with his West Ham side kick Bobby Gould as assistant.When Chelsea hammered Leyton Orient 7-3 it looked like some of Hurst's goalscoring magic was rubbing off on the players. In fact, by the end of December, Chelsea were sitting top of the division and were still top with only one month of the season to go.Bolstered by Clive Walker's goals in a fine season for the winger who was Chelsea's POTY, Chelsea had to beat Oldham in their final match to secure promotion. They did, but sadly, Birmingham and Sunderland both drew which was enough to leave Chelsea agonisingly 1 point off the promotion places. Had Mickey Droy not hit the post in the 1st match of the season v Sunderland, we'd have been promoted.Still, we had the antics of Petar Borota our mad Yugoslavian keeper to keep us entertained and with Colin Lee, Colin Viljoen and Colin Pates debuting in the season, how many teams could lay claim to having three Colin's in the team?To help us celebrate 50 Years of Chelsea we've partnered with 3Retro who have a superb collection of Chelsea retro gear and are offering 10% OFF when you use the 3RETRO10 code and if you order over £50 of merch you get FREE UK delivery.

    Stamford Chidge talks to Neil Fitzsimon about his new book - "A Deeper Shade of Blue" covering the 1972-77 seasons and a very turbulent time in Chelsea's history.A Deeper Shade of Blue charts the tumultuous years of Chelsea Football Club between 1972 and 1977 when the glittering cup-winning side of the early 70s was broken up, and stars such as Peter Osgood and Alan Hudson departed, along with manager Dave Sexton. It was an era that saw Chelsea relegated to the Second Division while massive debts pushed them to the brink of extinction. But the Blues bounced back with the birth of Eddie McCreadie's brash, young and exciting side, led by the precociously talented Ray 'Butch' Wilkins. McCreadie guided the club back to the First Division only to leave acrimoniously in bizarre circumstances - a golden opportunity spurned by the club's owners. A Deeper Shade of Blue is the eagerly awaited sequel to Neil Fitzsimon's Rhapsody in Blue. It reveals how the author made the difficult transition from adolescence to adulthood as a Chelsea supporter during those turbulent times. We discover how the innocence of youth was replaced by the harsh experience of growing up in 1970s England.Neil's book can be purchased from Amazon for around £10.
