Book Description

cfcuk, renowned as the "peoples" publication, has been on the streets since May 1999 when it was originally launched as Matthew Harding's Blue and White Army. Chelsea Football Fanzine, 'the best of cfcuk" Volume One, takes a look back at the first 5o issues showcasing a fascinating selection of articles, interviews and editorial material featured between May 1999 and September 2005, From 'fighting' Ken Bates to 'loving' Mr Abramovich, Chelsea Football Fanzine reflects the changing views and opinions of supporters who followed the Blues during one of the most turbulent and ultimately glorious periods in the Clubs history.

"It's totally amazing to me that a group of illiterates, who know very little about football and even less about writing, can plod along through 100 issues and still keep going. It just goes to show you what a gang of tattooed misfits can do if they put their minds to it." - BRUCE BUCK- CHELSEA CHAIRMAN

5.0 out of 5 stars Nostalgic look back 16 Jan. 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Superb read - I was one of the Chelsea Independent readers from the start and this magazine has been the perfect replacement. Good for a nostalgic look back - the magazine has definitely improved since the early days but take nothing away from the content in the first volume.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Fanzine - compiled 12 Feb. 2013
By Crazy Bald Heid VINE VOICE

As a reader of Chelsea fanzines throughout time, from the original (I think) Chelsea Independent ,the defunct and ostentatiously glossy Chelsea, Chelsea and Matthew Harding's Blue and White Army to its current incarnation of cfcuk. I have enjoyed them all.

The writing is patchy some well written some less so but it is all from the heart and pretty much all worth reading. All of Chelsea life is there the happy, the sad and the frustrated. Over the years you feel you know the characters and upon rereading you relive the pain and the ecstasy all over again.

So, reading the collected works of a fanzine? Is it worth it. If you, like me, have a lot of this stuff in a box somewhere it saves you dusting it off. If you haven't it represents a crash course in the emotions of the fans through thick and thin. If the interim manager thinks Chelsea fans lack passion he should be forced to read this. He would better understand us.

It's only a little more than "Only a pound" but still worth every penny.
