Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd and Alex ‘The Girl Who Likes Balls’ Churchill join Aaron Paul to discuss a trilogy of Cup matches where Chelsea were humbled by Man Utd in the FA Cup, beat Malmo in the Europa Cup and take on Man City in the Carabao Cup final.
Liam Twomey Chelsea correspondent for ESPN, joins us on the phone to report back on this weeks press news starting with the report on a Transfer Ban for Chelsea; Sarri’s comments about Callum Hudson-Odoi in the post match presser after the Malmo game and the rumours that Steve Holland might be in the frame to take over from Sarri.
Talking of the match against Malmo, Chelsea were dreadful, clueless and nervous until they scored and then the confidence seemed to flow back. But were they playing Sarriball? Plus N’Golo Kante showed us again why he is one of the best and Hudson-Odoi had arguably his best performance in a Chelsea shirt.
Did the limp defeat against Man Utd in the FA Cup on Monday night mark the beginning of the end for Maurizio Sarri? His tactics were picked apart by United; his substitutions were criminally insane and the players played with no belief. Is it any wonder then that the supporters have lost belief in him and his ‘football’?
Long time listener to the Chelsea FanCast, Fredric Karberg, joins us in the studio to talk about following Chelsea from Sweden and to talk about the support Chelsea gets from the Swedish Blues.
Looking ahead to the Carabao Cup final against Man City, we ask will it be another disaster if Sarri doesn’t change? Is there any way Chelsea can win and if Sarri makes the same mistakes and we get hammered will he be fired & will it be deserved? We also have Dave Walker joining us on the phone from ‘Read but never Red’ to give us the City fans perspective on the match.
To wrap up we answer this week’s Chelsea FanCast Quiz: Name the Chelsea scorers in all of Chelsea’s League Cup finals? And give our predictions for the Carabao Cup final.
