Product Description

Product Description

An anthology based on the Mark's writings for CFCnet and the legendary cfcuk fanzine, Chelsea Chronicles - volume one - captures in heartfelt, humorous, diary-format prose a period in Blues history when many fans couldn't quite believe what was going on at Stamford Bridge.

From the glory of the back-to-back title under Mourinho, through the ridiculous reigns of Grant and Scolari, and ending with the FA Cup victory with Hiddink at the helm, Chelsea Chronicles - volume one - provides the reader with an articulate and hugely entertaining insight into True Blue life.

Remember Asier del Horno? How about Maniche?!! There's a tribute to Super Frank (Sinclair),a homage to Tones Bar and a fiendish assessment of Peter Kenyon's abilities as a CEO interspersed with European travels to Transylvania, Sofia, Turin, Moscow and plenty more besides which get that 'Over Land and Sea' touch and make you feel a part of the constantly unfolding drama.

The surreal meeting with Avram Grant in the "So Bar" a couple of weeks after he had been fired is worth the purchase price alone, as is the genuinely touching tribute to the late, great, King of Stamford Bridge, Peter Osgood which wraps up this excellent first volume of Chelsea Chronicles and makes it a must-read title for Blues fans old and new.

" Gate 17 wearing David Moyes masks in the Imperial after the Cup Final win over Everton - I'm still crying with laughter at the photo - brilliant stuff." Kerry Dixon

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good read 7 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another good read about a true blue fan. The only dislike I thought was he went through a few subjects more than once which didn't happen in over land and sea.
I would still Dec recommend to all Chelsea supporters and over supporters especially if you understand footy banter between good friends.
