Saturday saw Chelsea’s first defeat of the season in a frustrating day at Everton. And let’s face it as Jose ‘the not so Happy One’ said afterwards if you don’t take your chances to score then you don’t deserve to win, but clearly we were the best team! A statement that would have had odds in soccer betting at Sportsbook

However the Chelsea FanCast can exclusively reveal the real reason we lost – it was the ‘Curse of the Black Kit’! Never the less, the defeat led to the obligatory social media meltdown. Had we won we’d have been top of the league, but as we lost its now officially our worst start in the Roman era, thus proving how stupid football is nowadays!

This week our special guest is Rob Shepherd. Rob has been a football writer for over 25 years writing for papers such as Today, The Daily Express, The Sunday Times and the News of the World, not so much the doyenne of football journalists but the daddy of football journalists and very much in a Ray Winstone style!

We discuss the defeat to Everton on the show, and award our match day awards – The Fannies – for Man of the Match; Chant of the Match; Guinness and Celery Moments. The listeners get the chance to ask Rob and us a question in “If You Don’t Ask, You Don’t Get” – on football or anything – and of course to wrap up we’ve got more stats from Chelsea Chadder and the latest Chelsea news.

You can now listen to the show live at 19.00 every Monday by tuning in to or you can watch the TV show at the same time at Tweet us @ChelseaFanCast or if you have any questions, or want to sit on the ‘Benches’ or have any video clips from the pub or the terraces for us to run in the show then email us at
