After an eventful season Chelsea fans were once again able to enjoy the sweet taste of success. Having already won the Champions League and Cup Winners Cup, Chelsea's Europa League glory this season made them the first English side to join the elite band of clubs who have completed this European treble.
Throughout the season Chelsea contested eight different trophies and played in a record-breaking number of matches (69). Memorable results included reaching the semi-finals in both the FA Cup and League Cup, as well as clinching an automatic Champions League spot following a tense battle for third place between three London rivals.
The 2012/2013 season also saw Frank Lampard rewrite club history yet again by surpassing Bobby Tambling and becoming the all-time leading goalscorer with 203 goals; a record that will likely stand for many years to come. With the signing of a number of talented young players such as Eden Hazard, Victor Moses and Oscar, Chelsea's team looks as strong as ever and the future looks extremely bright for the blues.
This fantastic programme includes every goal from every match from every competition that Chelsea FC played in during the 2012/2013 season.

Look very closely at the picture of Petr Cech in the top-right-hand-corner. It might look like the top of his picture has been faded-out, but the reality is this cover is a Microsoft Paint job. Someone's cut off half of poor Petr's head, and, without any remorse, simply clicked the "fill" option and added a block of black paint in the hope no-one would notice.
A pretty laughable attempt that certainly points the way that this release is heading in.
"Bare-bones" - a word I've used to describe the last two major media releases from Chelsea Football Club.
Sadly, it is a word that will again be utilised in the description of the club's latest season review attempt.
My major gripes with the reviews from last season - Chelsea FC - Champions of Europe 2012 [DVD] and Chelsea FC - Double Champions! Season Review 2011/12 [DVD] - included the incredibly limited content, the poor visual quality, and the poor quality of the commentary (in terms of Chelsea TV's own Mickey-Mouse coverage as opposed to professional ITV/BBC/Sky Sports/ESPN commentary.
One of these aspects has been (partially) covered - the commentary of matches is now mixed; the majority of Premier League games sees official commentary lifted from official coverage of the matches, but most European games continue with Chelsea TV's coverage. It is a step in the right direction, at least - but the best thing here is that with a variety of commentators, listening to the same old voices rattle on all the while doesn't become such a repetitive chore.
My gripe about quality isn't such a massive one, but having watched live match coverage, plus Match of the Day and other highlights shows, all in HD for the last five years or so, isn't it about time these season reviews were recorded and delivered to the same standard? Live sport is probably the best exemplar in the difference between standard- and high-definition viewing. Again, sadly, we are left pondering as to which pixel the ball is! Okay, it isn't that bad, but the difference in clarity IS visible.
Finally comes my major concern. Yet again we've been "done" in terms of there being NO special features whatsoever. No post-season interviews or Goal of the Season reels. Not even a nod to Frank Lampard becoming the club's top goalscorer - you'd perhaps have thought that his 203 goals might have been put on as a half-hour-long bonus featurette? No chance. That cash-cow will inevitably be released when Frank eventually retires, or moves on.
So, once more, we are left with this "bare-bones" product. Yes, we want all the goals from all the games, but a bit of behind-the-scenes footage wouldn't hurt! What about those times when we've had full matches (such as the 2-1 win over Liverpool at the end of the 02/03 campaign, the famous Champions League win at Highbury in 2004, the 2007 FA Cup Final...) all in FULL as bonus features? The times we've seen behind-the-scenes footage from the training ground, and even pre- and post-match interviews? Well, there aren't many of those here at all.
Buy this if you HAVE to or, if you're like me, simply want to add it to your collection. But if you're looking for something that commemorates the wonderful achievements of an historic Europa League win (AND finishing in the Champions League spaces at the expense of Tottenham YET AGAIN), and then Frank Lampard's 203 goals, you're better off looking for better-quality highlights on YouTube.
This is not a "season review". Going by the Trades Descriptions Act of 1968, a "review" should include some actual reviewing, right? This is a grandiose goals reel.
Overall - 3/5 - the intermittent professional commentary just about salvages this DVD. It is a case of being a shade either side of cash-cow mediocrity - I'll leave it up to you whether it's closer to horse-sh*t or brilliance.
The truth is these reviews are getting worse and worse. A very underwhelming effort.
As other reviewers have pointed out, why do they insist on using Chelsea TV commentary, rather than Sky or ITV? And where are the extras? No celebration of Lampard, or focus on the Europa Cup run, given that this gave us the complete collection of European trophies, maybe a special mention?
It's not bad, and will serve as a reminder in years to come, but Chelsea could - and should - be doing better.
The picture quality is average only, the chapter selection is not user friendly.
