This review is from: Chelsea: 20 Defining Matches (Guardian Shorts Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I'd been very disappointed by my last Chelsea kindle purchase - a totally knuckle-dragging 'fanzine' that I won't bother to name - but this was exactly what I wanted for a read on the bus or before dropping off to sleep. Of course there'll be arguments about some of the inclusions & omissions (the Champions' League semi-final rather than the Bayern final?!?), but when there are so many games I saw in my early Chelsea years (even an oddity like the '66 5-5 game with West Ham,)I don't mind. Being drawn from Guardian & Observer reports, there are also some really good writers like Hugh McIlvanney on show too. Most of the games are top & tailed with a bit of scene-setting context & what happened next. Ideal purchase for longterm Blues wanting a bit of old school Chelsea or for anyone in doubt that the club, players & supporters have as much 'history' as anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Hallmark of Sportswriting, 16 Feb 2013

This review is from: Chelsea: 20 Defining Matches (Guardian Shorts Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This book is from the wonderful collection of Guardian Shorts produced from the Guardian and Observer archives. This collection of matches on Chelsea starts with the first report in 1935 to the Champions' League semi final in 2012. Both for price, and quality of writing it is a little gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect reading if you are a Chelsea fan, 23 Jan 2013

This review is from: Chelsea: 20 Defining Matches (Guardian Shorts Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This is a great little book - entertaining and fun. For an over 50's Chelsea fan like me - a wonderful trip down memory lane. Only thing stopping it getting 5 starts was it stopped before the European Cup final.
At 1.99 a snip.
