Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Matt Beadle, Stamford Chidge & Mark Worrall look back at Chelsea’s pre-season win against Barcelona and discuss the pre-season so far plus this week’s ‘Legend of the Week’ sponsored by classicfootballshirts.com.

How important was the win against Barcelona (Rakuten Trophy You’ll Never Sing That”)? Chelsea look to have depth in midfield with Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Barkley, Mount, Drinkwater, Bakayo all featuring, but who will get the nod come the season opener against Utd? Who will lead Chelsea’s front line – Tammy, Michy or Giroud? And with Chelsea playing Reading on Sunday, is this more of an Old Skool pre-season game?

Continuing the pre-season discussion is Azpilicueta a man in decline or still in his prime? Can Jorginho go from whipping boy to top boy? And does Willian deserve to be Chelsea’s number 10?

With the new season a matter of week’s away will expectations be too great? What are the realistic targets this season? Who do we expect to shine? Will we get more glorious unpredictability? How’s it shaping up for the starting 11 against Utd? Chidge and Marco nail their starting 11 against Utd to the mast!

In this weeks ‘Legend of the week’ sponsored by Classic Shirts, we choose Chidge’s hero, Kerry Dixon, Chelsea’s 3rd highest goal scorer (193), a proper No. 9 and a hero for anyone who went in the ‘80’s but why the lingering affection for the ‘80’s players?
