We delve in to the Chelsea FanCast Archive over the summer break and dig up some classic Chelsea FanCast’s from the past. This week’s episode is Chelsea FanCast #191 which features a guest appearance on the show by former Chelsea player and cult hero, Mickey Thomas.
The show was originally recorded on 8th February 2012, a day after a frustrating 3-3 draw against Man Utd. Mickey Thomas is a much loved former Chelsea player in spite of his relatively short time at the club, but his bubbly and cheeky personality marked him out as one of the great characters of the game in the 1980’s. He also scored some important goals for Chelsea put in some great performances in John Neal’s side which are remembered fondly to this day.
Chidge and the boys are joined by very special guest Chelsea cult hero Mickey Thomas to discuss the 3-3 draw v the Mancs and Mickey’s Chelsea career and thoughts on the modern game.
After a frozen afternoon at the Bridge, the Chelsea FanCast report back on how Chelsea managed to find themselves 3-0 up, only to squander the chance for 3 points and end up drawing 3-3. But due credit must go to Howard Webb for evening things up!! While the boys are gutted to see a 3-0 lead disappear, they are encouraged by the signs of life in AVB’s ‘project’ when considering the absentees from the team.
Chelsea cult hero from John Neal’s mid-80’s team, Mickey Thomas, is the special guest this week and is full of stories about his time at the club, playing with Joey Jones; Pat Nevin; Kerry Dixon and the 4-4 at Sheffield Wednesday, and his relationship with the Chelsea faithful. He also airs some very interesting views on the modern game about pressure; Fernando Torres; John Terry; and money!
