On this week’s Classic Chelsea FanCast we repeat the show originally recorded in September 2008 where Jason Cundy was our guest and tells us about his days as a player and fan!
Chidge, Martin, Stu and ChelTel joined by Chelsea Legend – Jason Cundy who completes the longest ever “60 second fan” describing his best goal as the one he scored by leaping like a salmon (a tin of salmon!). We also cast our opinions on the Stoke and Pompey games, welcoming the tactical ability of Big Phil Scolari and Chelsea’s stylish play so far this season. Jason explains why Stevie Clarke had to leave Chelsea, whose hat was in the ring to replace him, and why Ray Wilkins was the ideal appointment.
Chel Tel finally gets the inside story on why Jason left Chelsea for Sp*rs in 1992, without admitting that it was he who wrote “Bring Back Cundy!” on the East Stand wall. Jason gives us the low down on what it was like rising from the massed ranks of the Shed End as a supporter to being a fan favourite on the pitch.
In “Tales from the Shed”, Chel Tel springs a surprise on Jason by producing a programme from the pre-season game against the mighty Somersham Town in 1987. After 21 years, Jason finally signs the programme!
In “You’re on CFFC”, we hear from Chris Larwood who tells us about the struggle to watch Chelsea down under, aided by looking for the Celery nailed to a mates front door!!
Next week we’ll be recording a new show to look back on Chelsea’s 2010/2011 campaign and look forward to the fixtures for next season!
