Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge and Jonathan Kydd join Johnny Burrow to digest the week’s Chelsea news and look ahead to the Europa League Cup Final against Arsenal next week.
Liam Twomey, Chelsea correspondent for ESPN joins us on the phone to discuss whether Maurizio Sarri will get the boot if Chelsea lose to Arsenal the Europa League Cup Final or will Sarri walk out and join Juventus? But has the treatment of Sarri been fair or unfair by both the fans and the club? And looking ahead to next week’s final, Liam picks up on the Chelsea Supporters’ Trusts statement criticising UEFA and Chelsea for not doing more to help supporters make the trip out to Baku to support the team.
With Petr Cech set to join Chelsea as Sporting Director and Frank Lampard rumoured to be in the frame for the manager’s job should Sarri leave, are we seeing a ‘Return of the legends’? Are they ready to return and are they right for the role or is it more important that they have a connection with the club and the supporters?

With Olivier Giroud and Willy Caballero following David Luiz in extending their contracts, what does this say about the impending Transfer ban and why haven’t Chelsea appealed the decision with CAS yet? And with the arrival of the young American Pulisic, can he really be the replacement for Eden Hazard?
With Chelsea fans facing a nightmare trip to Baku to watch the Europa League Cup final, we discuss how UEFA and the Club have failed the supporters.
Previewing next week’s final, we look back at Chelsea’s illustrious history in European competitions and check out their recent form against Arsenal; ponder whether Arsenal have extra motivation; will Hazard bow out in style; and will Kante be fit enough?
In the ‘Opposition View’ we talk to Chris Howard from Gunners Town and ask him is winning the Europa Cup more important for Arsenal? With many Chelsea fans unhappy with this season, are Arsenal fans happy with theirs? And how does Chris see the final going and what is his prediction?
We wrap up by discussing will Sarri pick Giroud or Higuain? Will injuries to Rudiger, Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi cost us? Will Emery do a job on Chelsea like he did at the Emirates? And finally, how do we see the match going?
