There is no-one more qualified to write this book than Rick Glanvill, official historian and biographer of Chelsea. The miscellany isn't a blow-by-blow history of the club, but it is a fun, irreverent and informative look at some of the events, places and characters that have made this club what it is today. The club didn't start with Abramovich and Rick's book has the perfect blend between old and new. It's ideal for Chelsea fans of all ages and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

I've been a Chelsea fan from my first game in the late 80's and I often refer to Stamford Bridge as my church when religion comes in conversation, this book is a bible teaching me new things about the history of my club, in 1930 for example, Stamford Bridge was turned into a temporary cathedral! very fitting.

Rick Glanvill has a number of books available already and this another in the same class, he is the official club historian for a reason and a font of knowledge that goes above and beyond many fans.

This book is up to date and includes quotes from famous names on social media going right back to the printed press of 1905 as the club was founded.

A great gift for anyone with blue blood.
