On this weeks Classic FanCast we give you a compilation of some of Chel Tel’s funniest Tales From the Shed, together with contributions from our special guests Jason Cundy and Big Phil.
Over the last year or three our very own Chel Tel has become something of a Chelsea Football FanCast legend! As a Chelsea fan going home and away from the 1970’s through the days when we were ‘not very good’ until the last decade of unparalleled glory Chel Tel has seen and done it all. Every week, he regales us with his ‘Tales From the Shed’ and they have become the most popular bit of the show.
On today’s show Chel Tel tells us how he hitched a lift on Hickey’s coach on the way to Bristol City away, how he led the Spurs fans in chants against the board from the Paxton Lane end when Chelsea fans were supposedly banned, being caught short at Old Trafford and relieving himself on their not so hallowed turf, how he had to do more than sing for his supper on the way back from Grimsby away in 1989 and finally, how getting John McNaught hammered on New Years Eve was the inspiration for 2 great goals the next day.
In between, some of our guests give us their own Tales From The Shed as Big Phil asks us where carrots come from after his experience of the Cup Winners Cup final in 1998, and tells us how Stuart became one of the youngest pitch invaders ever at Shrewsbury away. Jason Cundy recalls playing for Chelsea in the late ‘80’s, the influence of Paul Elliot and signs Chel Tel’s programme from the pre-season friendly against Somersham Town in 1987. Chelsea author Kelvin Barker tells us all about the Football Specials, hugging Colin Pates and Mickey Thomas’ antics and Michael Roban explains how as a young New Yorker on holiday in London, he ended up at Stamford Bridge as a result of a pub crawl and a Chelsea fan for life.
So whether you’re hearing them for the first time or want to relive Chel Tel’s hilarious stories, we give you the best of ‘Tales from the Shed’ – part one!
