Chelsea FC 60 Seconds That Shaped The Blues EBook
Selecting 60 memorable moments from the decorated history of Chelsea Football Club has been a difficult, but enjoyable task as there have been so many to choose from, particularly in the last couple of decades under the ownership of Roman Abramovich.
Indeed, since 2003 when he bought the club, the Blues have won two Champions Leagues, five Premierships, five FA Cups, three League Cups and two Europa Leagues. 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 goalscorers and legends, that have each contributed to the rich tapestry that is Chelsea FC.
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’.
Come On You Blues!
