Chelsea FanCast #157
On this week’s Classic Chelsea FanCast we repeat the show originally recorded on 5th May 2011 where Paul Canoville was our guest and tells us about his days as a player and fan!
Chidge, the Boys and the Benches are joined by 1980’s Chelsea player Paul Canoville, and discuss his playing career including the infamous 4-4 draw against Sheffield Wednesday in 1985.
The boys discuss a great weekend which saw the Chels come away with a great win against Spurs, only surpassed by seeing Arsenal doing us a favour and beating the Mancs. All that plus Darren Barker winning his fight to become the European Middleweight champion. What a weekend, and we’re still in it to win it – roll on next weekend!
We have a good old natter about the win against Spurs where let’s face it we got a bit of luck from the ref and linesman for a change with the first goal and possibly the second. But Sp*rs fans, if you only manage to muster one shot on target in the whole match, albeit a great one, then you can hardly complain! As always we award our Man and Chant of the Match and Guinness and Celery moments from the games, in the ‘Fannies’. We also discuss our nomination for Best Club Podcast in the EPL Talk awards.
But even more important than all of that, this week we are joined by a very very special guest in the form of Mr Paul Canoville, Chelsea’s first black player, hero of the infamous 4:4 draw against Sheffield Wednesday in 1985 and all round incredible bloke. We talk to Paul about his Chelsea career and memories as well as what he thinks about the current side and turning out for the Chelsea Old Boys, but not until he has faced the music in “60 Second Fan”!
All wrapped up by three very ‘80’s flavoured terrace songs in “We’re out to Show the World the Way to Sing”!!!
