Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd and Clayton Beerman are joined by Love Sport’s Aaron Paul to have a look back at Chelsea’s 1-0 victory over Bate Borisov in the Europa League and last week’s 3-1 win against Crystal Palace as well as looking ahead to Chelsea v Everton this weekend.
Rounding up the Chelsea news this week, we discuss why a European Super League will be a disaster for English football; Chelsea in the market for Callum Wilson for £35m in January; Ruben Loftus Cheek being recalled to the England squad and Chelsea legend Didier Drogba announcing his retirement.
Looking back at the Europa League match against Bate Borisov, we ask was this Chelsea’s worst performance of the season? With Bate hitting the woodwork 4 times, when will Chelsea’s luck run out? With Giroud scoring his first goal since May will this be the confidence boost he needs to find the onion bag more regularly? And with qualification secured and the job done, will Sarri look to rest players in the final group match?
We have an interview with Neil ‘Smiffy’ Smith, author of “Where Were You When We Were Shocking”, who’s first Chelsea match was in 1966, since when he has been to over 2,000 matches. Neil gives us an insight in to what it was like following Chelsea in an era when we lost more than we won and reveals that thanks to the bond between the supporters, it was the pre and post match that more than made up for it.
Re-visiting the win against Crystal Palace last weekend, we praise Morata, Jorginho and Sarri for the great team spirit he is building.
To wrap up we take a look at Chelsea v Everton on Sunday with the ‘Opposition View’ from Tom Clarke from the Toffee Blues Podcast and discuss Sarri’s chances of breaking the record of match wins as a new manager and Chelsea’s excellent record against Everton at home over the last 24 years before revealing our predictions.
All this plus calls from Kendall, Mark and Dan.
