Written by G2 founder and owner Jules Gammond, this new official Chelsea FC hardback 60 Seconds That Shaped The Blues is exclusively available through this web-site at the discounted price of £7.99 (RRP £10).
The fully illustrated publication highlights 60 key moments that have shaped the history of the club from the day that it was founded in the Rising Sun Public House in 1905 to the victory over Manchester City in this year’s Champions League Final.
Many of the magical moments are from the past couple of decades under the ownership of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich during which time the Blues have won two Champions Leagues, five Premierships, five FA Cups, three League Cups, two Europa Leagues and the World Club Championship in February 2022.
Not that they were entirely unsuccessful before, as the Stamford Bridge trophy cabinet already included a first league title, three more FA Cups and two Cup Winners’ Cups.
Chelsea FC Women have been no less prolific, winning five league titles, two FA Cups and two League Cups.
But this book is not exclusively about triumphs, it recalls those important milestones in Chelsea Football Club’s life story, the year it was founded, the chairmen and managers who made an indelible mark over the years, the record scores and classic games, the goal scorers and legends, that have each contributed to the rich tapestry that is Chelsea FC.
Comments Gammond: ” Having been a supporter for more than 50 years, I have been privileged to have witnessed many of the highs and lows first hand, including that soggy night in Moscow when, but for a slip by captain John Terry in the penalty shoot-out, we would have won three Champions League trophies by now. And while our fans sing about being ‘carefree’ it is because we care so deeply that this collection of magical moments will bring a tear to the eye and lump to the throat of all true Blues ‘wherever you may be’.”
From Ranieri to Rodgers, the story of Leicester City’s Premier League seasons since 2016 culminating in their first ever FA Cup Final victory in their 137-year club history.
Rush released to tie-in with the club’s victory parade (date tbc) and the Euros 2021 featuring many of the club’s star players.
Written by Harry Harris, his 80th football book, with a foreword by former Leicester City legend and keeper Peter Shilton, the most capped England player of all time.
