Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Jonathan Kydd and Dan Silver join Johnny Burrow to look back at Chelsea’s nerve jangling 2nd leg of the Europa league semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt which saw Chelsea reach their 6th European final after a penalty shoot-out. We also look ahead to the final Premier League match of the season away to Leicester City on Sunday.
Liam Twomey, Chelsea correspondent for ESPN joins us on the phone to discuss another final for Chelsea, but how much praise do Chelsea & Sarri deserve? With Blue eyes now focused on how to get to Baku, Liam reports on the travel & ticket allocation nightmare the fans now face.
Kepa & Hazard were the penalty shoot-out heroes as Chelsea reached their 6th European final (that’s now 19 finals in 19 years), Chelsea made very hard work of it, but found a way. But why was Ruben Loftus-Cheek subbed? Why was Cahill snubbed when Christensen went off? With some poor 2nd half performances is it Sarri or the players that are getting Chelsea over the line?
With Frankfurt fans were all over Stamford Bridge, questions need to be asked about how they got tickets and talking of tickets, Chelsea and Arsenal have a pitiful ticket allocation, while Baku itself is a ridiculous location which will be very expensive to get to. But can Chelsea & Sarri win the final and will it be Hazard’s last hurrah?
No Stamford Chidge on the show this week, he was at the Football Blogging Awards in Manchester, but we get him on the phone to report back on whether or not Chelsea Fancast wonthe Best Podcast award. Was it close but no cigar?
In a week of mixed emotions as well as performances for Chelsea, we discuss the horror for Chelsea fans of Liverpool v Spurs Champions’ League final. And in other news we discuss the Transfer Ban being upheld – what happens now? And what of the rumours that Sarri might go to Roma?
