Everyone has had their say about Chelsea over the last year or so, but this book is the one that matters. This is where the Chelsea supporters have their say at last and The Special Ones is a very special book that stands out from the competition. This sort of book can’t be faked - it really does belong to the fans and is well written and a joy to read.
There is lots of humour in The Special Ones as well as many interviews with Chelsea legends such as Peter Osgood, Dennis Wise and John Terry. There is a great chapter on all the songs we sang over the years, plus a huge chunk of memories going back to the 30s and 40s and moving right up to the modern day.
I couldn’t stop reading The Special Ones once I opened it on the recent trip to Barcelona and would recommend it to every Chelsea supporter, young or old. A BRILLIANT book!

The Special Ones - Chelsea by the Fans is a football book with a difference and one of the best I've ever read. Its based on feedback by those who really matter, the supporters of Chelsea Football Club. The fans were polled in the run up to the Club's Centenary season and Martin Knight and John King have done a fantastic job in putting into print. Pub and terrace talk and opinion plus interviews with those selected for the All-time Chelsea Dream XI, most memorable, game, goal, etc make interesting reading. The Special Ones is pure 100% Chelsea. An excellent read and highly recommended.

THE book to buy for any Chelsea fan, I bought this when it came out and have added it to the Kindle. Sums up that title winning season with the match reviews and the song section is brilliant.
