Format: Hardcover
Some books claim to give you the inside track, but most fail to deliver.
This book is spot on, packed with nuggets, insights and stories that capture the 100 yr history of a football club. What I liked best was it wasn't organised decade by decade like a diary, but grouped into subject areas like being a fan, the ground and glories.
I laughed out loud at some of the stories from the players and smirked at the interview the Ken Bates.
A priceless look inside the world of football. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
For a club sponsored book this is very good. A sign of the new openess at Chelsea must be that this book devotes a chapter to the hooliganism problem that blighted the club for years rather than sweep it under the carpet. What with this and the excellent The Special Ones: Chelsea By The Fans we seem to be witnessing, at last, some quality books on our club rather than usual journo/cuttings jobs that follow the flavour of the month around like hungry seagulls.

Long time fan, the grouping by subject rather than chronology is an excellent idea. There were lots i did n`t realise, and lots I laughed out loud at, and I love my club even more.

Good work Rick, well done.

A must read for any Chelsea fan, and even non fans as it's written in an objective manner. Really interesting to see how the club has continually shot itself in both feet over the years, and always just as the team were just about to start delivering.
