Chelsea Here Chelsea There

Chelsea Here Chelsea There is the latest offering from Gate 17, Mark Worrall's excellent publishing vehicle for all things Chelsea. The book harnesses the combined talents of Worrall himself, Kelvin 'should eat celery cos he's getting fat' Barker and the legend that is David 'only a pound' Johnston. Anyone who has listened to these three on the radio will know they are an entertaining triumvirate who spark off each other and keep their listeners entertained and that comes through in Chelsea Here Chelsea There. The book concerns itself with a game (which ended in a 1-1 draw) that took place between Chelsea and Arsenal at Highbury in August 1984 and entertainingly covers off the vagaries of life back in the day. The research is phenomenal and as with all Gate 17 material it is the shared experience of following the Blues that shines. Not only are their some brilliant interviews with the players who starred for Chelsea that day, including a fascinating insight into the mind of the much maligned Dale Jasper, but also some great recollections from fans present on the day. The photographs are exceptional. Perhaps the best bit of the book is the interview with the bloke who was Chelsea's mascot that day. Essential reading not only for Blues fans but for anyone with an interest in what life was like for football fans under the Thatcherite yoke.

Excellent read the memories just flood back . What a season. Man city Friday night, a particular favourite, closely followed by Blundell park, so good

This book brings back some great memories, a must read for the fans who were there in the 80's, but perhaps it should also be a must read for the new breed of fan who can only now experience the sanitized version of what a day out at a game means.

Was at the game myself, and the start of the book was good, but it got a bit repetitive as it went on.

Not sure the player and supporter tales added much, apart from padding book out to decent size
