For Chelsea FC, 2011/12 was an incredible season that will live forever in the hearts and minds of players and fans alike. The club completed an historic double, lifting The FA Cup and becoming newly crowned champions of Europe, lifting the coveted Champions League trophy following years of heartbreak, after beating four times winners Bayern Munich at their home ground in one of the most exciting Finals in recent times. A season that promised so much with the appointment of new manager André Villas-Boas looked to be heading towards disappointment as Chelsea's league and European form faltered. However, under Chelsea old boy and club legend Roberto Di Matteo, installed as interim first team coach, the incredible spirit of the club shone through with Chelsea putting together two sensational cup runs which will stay with their fans forever. Every match and every goal from this unforgettable season are covered in this action-packed review. Extra bonus material includes interviews with Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic and Salomon Kalou as well as a montage of the season's most memorable moments.

The compilation has all the attributes - all the goals and quite nicely put together. But when it gets down to it it leaves you feeling more than a bit unsatisfied.
Okay, all Chelsea fans will buy this, but this could have been so much more.
I would have expected a DVD dedicated solely to the European Campaign, with perhaps the Barca and Munich Final shown in full. It would also have been nice to have the FA Cup Final shown in full.
And yes, that would have cost more, but fans would have paid it, Chelsea fans especially.
In my opinion this has the air of something that has been rushed out to make a quick buck rather than something for the fans to cherish. And in a season like this one, where Chelsea turned disaster into an ultimate, all-conquering triumph, the video makers (and quite possibly the club too) have sold themselves very short.
It may be the club have plans to release a Cup-Double dvd sometime soon - I certainly hope so, for three reasons. First, it would be a good money-spinner for the club; second, it would mark the grit and determination, the skill, style and attitude of the players and coaching staff; and third, because the fans deserve more than this pretty feeble effort to commemmorate a remarkable season.
So much potential - not exactly wasted, but not exactly well-thought out and considered either.
It is a simple season review - and it does no more than that. It shows every goal from every game from the 2011/12 campaign, as you would expect. There are no extended highlights for even the final against Bayern Munich, the FA Cup final win against Liverpool or the famous wins over Napoli and Barcelona. Quite disappointingly, there is hardly any mention of Petr Cech's numerous saves that won us countless games last season as the defence faltered time and time again. There is also no footage of our FA Youth Cup win - in contrast, the 2010 "Double" DVD featured the highlights of the full Youth Cup run. There are a distinct lack of special features as well. No homage to the departing Didier Drogba, either.
This is nothing more than a barebones review - disappointing considering this was an ultimately special season. Don't expect too much bang for your buck.
Why can't Chelsea produce a highlights DVD? Forget the conceded goals, forget the dull matches, forget the failed campaigns like the Carling Cup; who cares? Move away from the chronical and give us the magic and the glory, the resolute defending and the midfield genius. Show the best goals with plenty of buildup. And most of all, give us the SKY commentary like Man Utd's DVD.
This DVD should be a double disc. It's the least we fans deserve.
It's lazily put together as ILC clearly has contempt for its customers, with no effort made in the knowledge that this is the only DVD available.
- There's no replays of oppo goals
- For most matches only the goals are shown, so you don't get a feel of the match
- Key moments of the season (Cech's many vital saves, near misses such as Cavani's early chance at the Bridge) are omitted
- The match detail captions are intrusive and obscure the match action
- The sound is only in stereo!
- Commentary is Chelsea TV only, a bit of variety would've been nice (GNev's "UN-BELIEVABLE!" from the CL SF 2nd leg for starters)
The extras are pathetic. Just a handful of post-FA Cup Final interviews and very brief at that. The lack of attention to detail is epitomised by the end of April date being stated as 31st ! And where's the tribute to Didier Drogba's 8 years at the Bridge? Especially as his time at Chelsea culminated in Drog's scoring the winner in both cup finals.
Hopefully, the FA Cup and Champions League DVD's that will surely follow (no news on either as yet) will be of far higher quality, just don't hold your breath. And would it hurt to release a BluRay version for 21st century audiences?! If Sky broadcast in HD (and 3D too) the DVD market should follow suit.
For what was arguably the greatest season in Chelsea's history, this DVD is utterly underwhelming.
Football moves at such a fast pace, its things like these that every fan of their club should own.
