'Thank Fox For That!' Chelsea FanCast #355  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver & Clayton Beerman for the last show of the season to talk about the Leicester & Liverpool games and the continuing saga around John Terry's contract... Like a 20 stone bloke completing a marathon, Chelsea limped to the end of the season with a 1-1 draw against the Champions. And finally, it’s over, this annus horribilis of a season. Hopefully we can wake up in August and pretend that it never happened. I for one wish the applauding of Leicester players and their goal had never happened – another poor indictment of modern football and its fans. All of this and John Terry’s emotive on-pitch speech to the fans – was it farewell or will we see him leading us out next season? On the show tonight we’ll be asking what the applauding of the Leicester players and their goal was all about and we’ll be looking at the JT saga with the offer of a new contract – a genuine attempt to keep him at the club or a cynical PR stunt? In part two we’ll have a look back at the game, Baba, Willian and Matic’s performances in particular, and we’ll give our verdict on the youth players who played a bit part. In part three, we have three great emails to chew the fat over and to wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news. The Chelsea Football FanCast #355: Thank Fox For That!

'This is the End?' Chelsea FanCast #354  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and Tony Glover to discuss the woeful loss against Sunderland and much much worse what looks like being the end for 'Captain, Leader, Legend' John Terry. As if this shithouse of a season wasn’t bad enough, losing to Sunderland after being 2-1 up was royally capped off by Captain Leader Legend JT being sent off in the last minute. His red card brings with it a 2 match ban thereby meaning that it might well be the last time we see JT in a Chelsea shirt. Is this the end for JT? If so what a horrible way to end the career of arguably Chelsea’s greatest ever player. If only the end of this shambles of a season could come quicker. On the show tonight we’ll be asking if this really is the end for JT and asking if he is Chelsea’s greatest ever player. In part two we’ll be asking why Guus ignored the youth again and has his 2nd tenure in charge been all that. We’ll discuss the massive job that Conte has on his hands – and will he actually be allowed to manage or will the board interfere yet again. And with a triumphant title winning Ranieri returning to the Bridge next Sunday we ask how should he be remembered - savior or failure? In part three, its Chelsea question time again so all you listeners in mixlr get your questions in and we’ll attempt to answer them. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news. The Chelsea Football FanCast #354: ‘This is the End?’

'55 Years...55 More!' Chelsea FanCast #353  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Chelsea writer Mark Worrall and Chelsea journalist Dan Levene to try and catch our breath after a visceral and cracking evening at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea kept their unbeaten home record intact and derailed Sp*rs title aspirations. Last night ably demonstrated why football is the greatest game in the world. From the depths of despair at half time to the resurrection in the second, the game crackled like a 10 pound firework. But most important of all Chelsea’s feckless team of malcontents and shirkers finally turned up when it mattered to ensure we kept our 26 year home unbeaten run intact and put a nail in the coffin of Sp*rs title aspirations whilst delivering the most improbable title of all to Leicester and our old gaffer Ranieri. What more could you want – blood, thunder and Eden Hazard - football bloody hell! On the show tonight we’ll be prostrating ourselves in front of Eden Hazard and offering eternal gratitude for keeping the North London Cocks firmly in their place. In part two we’ll be asking were Sp*rs and Clattenburg a disgrace or do we prefer blood & thunder football with 100% commitment and a bit of naughtiness. And just how important was it to keep the unbeaten record intact, end Sp*rs title hopes and deliver Leicester theirs? In part three, we’ll be congratulating the Youth on their hat-trick of Cup wins and asking should the club be embarrassed at their lack of progression to first team football and we’ll be asking why is Courtois so grumpy and what is happening with the proposed redevelopment of Stamford Bridge. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news, including a couple of great emails. Chelsea FanCast #353: '55 Years...55 More!'

'Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!' Chelsea FanCast #352  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Clayton Beerman and Tony Glover to discuss a great away trip to the seaside, oh and the small matter of a victory in a football match against the mighty Bournemouth! What a great away trip Bournemouth was – sun, sea and drinking with some great mates all day and for once the football didn’t get in the way of a good day out, with Chelsea cantering to a 4-1 win – or did they? In spite of the alcohol infused warm glow of victory, the nagging doubt remains that Bournemouth had their towel laid out on the sun lounger slightly ahead of Chelsea. Oh well at least Hazard scored for the first time in the league this season and the players were left with no doubt about the importance of beating Spurs next week. On the show tonight we’ll be asking why did Hiddink play Mikel at Centre Back and what happened to the youth players he was supposed to be playing. In part two I will attempt to have a reasoned debate about Fabregas – is he a flat track bully or Chelsea’s creative inspiration? And is Eden Hazard back – for good? In part three, we have another version of Chelsea FanCast Question Time where the listeners in mixlr get to ask questions on Chelsea to the panel. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news, including an email ticking me off for some rather rash and ill thought through comments last week. The Chelsea Football FanCast #352: 'Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside!'

'Disintegration!' Chelsea FanCast #351  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Chelsea author and ESPN blogger Mark Worrall and the 'Reverend' Tony Glover to discuss the shambles that was the 3-0 defeat to Man City on Saturday. Another Saturday, another top day in the pubs before and after interrupted by a very poor 90 minutes of football. To be honest I thought we’d probably lose to City but the shambolic and passionless way in which we lost was depressing even by this horrible season’s standard. As a Chelsea supporter you can accept it when your team has no talent or if the opposition is just better than you but what you cannot accept are players with talent who show no passion, fight or seem not to care for the club or the supporters. The way their heads dropped when the second goal went in and they succumbed to the inevitability of it all and basically gave up was just so so depressing. On the show tonight we’ll be asking why we were so shambolic and should Hiddink take some of the blame? In part two we’ll be assessing Ruben Loftus-Cheek’s progress, asking what happened to Oscar and should we have let De Bruyne go? In part three, we have another version of Chelsea FanCast Question Time where the listeners in mixlr get to ask questions on Chelsea to the panel. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news. The Chelsea FanCast #351: 'Disintegration!'

'Pointless!' Chelsea FanCast #350  

We celebrate the 350th Chelsea FanCast tonight - the defeat to Swansea not so much! Join Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and Chelsea journalist Dan Levene as they discuss the match against Swansea and all things Chelsea plus a special interview with former Chelsea player and TalkSport and Chelsea TV presenter Jason Cundy. On the show tonight we’ll be discussing the conundrum of playing the youth and disinterested senior players whilst expecting decent results and asking was Guus right to ‘yank’ off young Miazga? In part two we’ll be asking who gives a shit – the Players; Manager; Club; the Supporters? We’ll also be rounding up this week’s Chelsea news on new manager Conte, potential departures and JT’s future. In part three, we have a special interview with Jason Cundy recorded earlier this week where I asked him about this season; Conte and what needs to happen this summer. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news and we’ll be announcing the winner of the Didier Drogba print. The Chelsea Football FanCast #350: 'Pointless!'

'Breaking Me Duck!' Chelsea FanCast #349  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and the man who made Gate 17 famous - Mark Worrall - to discuss Chelsea's win against Villa and all things Chelsea! So the duck finally made his debut against Villa on Saturday and the Chelsea faithful went quackers – first chanting “we forgot that you were here” and then after he scored his debut goal from the spot “we were there when Pato scored” – it was great to see that he didn’t duck out of the challenge and prove finally that he is more mighty duck than lame duck. I’m going to stop this now before you lot tell me to duck off! On the show tonight we’ll be talking about Pato’s debut and asking does he have a future at Chelsea, and talking of Chelsea’s future it was good to finally see some of the yoof getting a chance. In part two we’ll ask should we have sympathy for the Villains and what’s left to play for this season. In part three, we’ll be saying Announce Conte; asking what’s up with the Belgians and we’ll be bidding a sad farewell to Ian Britton who lost his battle with cancer last week. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news together with an exciting competition to win a Didier Drogba print. Chelsea FanCast #349: 'Breaking Me Duck!'

'Life in the Old Dog yet?' Chelsea FanCast #348  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and the legendary 'Reverend' Grocer Jack to discuss the draw against West Ham and all things Chelsea. On the show tonight we’ll be asking were Chelsea dominated and lucky to get a draw or did the players show some fight to prove they haven’t downed tools for the summer…yet! In part two we’ll ask why did Guus start Remy instead of Traore; is Fabregas showing future captaincy potential; has Courtois lost confidence and is Oscar one of the most disappointing Chelsea players of all time? In part three, thanks to Chelsea having no midweek football for the foreseeable future, we’ll be throwing the show open to our listeners in mixlr and inviting them to ask questions of the panel – a Chelsea FanCast Question Time if you like. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news together with an exciting competition to win money off vouchers for a Chelsea shirt at Classic Football Shirts. The Chelsea Football FanCast #348: Life in the Old Dog yet?

'Reality Bites!' Chelsea FanCast #347  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Dan Silver, Clayton Beerman and Chelsea author and football writer Mark Worrall to digest a somewhat depressing week for Chelsea. It’s hard to remember a worse week in recent times following Chelsea as we limply exited both the Champions League and the FA Cup. All this seemed to be compounded by Costa apparently being sent off for biting Everton’s Gareth Barry – whilst all of us can understand the desire to do Barry serious injury, thankfully Costa pulled his chompers away at the last second thereby avoiding a dreaded Luis Suarez scenario. In reality the only thing to bite was the realization that these two defeats mean that our season is over by March for the first time since the 90’s and an uncertain future awaits the club, players and supporters alike. On the show tonight we’ll be discussing what the Cost of Costa is to the club - is he a liability worth putting up with and with Lukaku scoring twice to put us out of the Cup – should the Chelsea brains trust be ruing letting the big Belgian go? In part two we’ll finish the Everton chat by asking were the players too tired or just not bothered. Turning our attention to the PSG game we’ll ask was Costa going off injured the turning point and has this proven how flawed our striker policy has been this season, and should Hazard have swapped shirts with Di Maria and what future does he have at the club. In part three we’ll be looking at the future for Chelsea and asking will it be wilderness or wonderland as we discuss what big changes will be needed to get us back to the top. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news together with an exciting competition to win a Chelsea shirt and money off vouchers at Classic Football Shirts! The Chelsea Football FanCast #347: Reality Bites!

'Naughty 40!' Chelsea FanCast #346  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and the 'Reverend' Tony Glover from the Podding Shed Podcast to discuss Chelsea's matches against Stoke and Norwich. Yep that’s right Chelsea have reached the points tally of 40 which means we have avoided relegation this year…probably. Joking aside, it was a disappointing week in hindsight as we clung on to win 2-1 away at Norwich and then snatched a draw from the jaws of victory at home against Stoke on Saturday, thus ending our 3 match winning streak. Were Guus Hiddink’s substitutions in both games at fault or are the players still not firing on all cylinders, or is the crazy old Dutchman merely prioritizing wins in the Champions League and FA Cup. On the show tonight we’ll be discussing what went wrong with the substitutions against Norwich and Stoke and asking has the team progressed under Guus and has the Dutchman given us false hope? In part two we’ll be asking if Guus is prioritizing the Champions League and FA Cup at the expense of the Premier League; and we’ll be asking how it is that Traore can play without fear whilst Loftus-Cheek plays with the weight of expectation on him. In part three we’ll be remembering the King of Stamford Bridge – Peter Osgood with the anniversary of his death 10 years ago last week; we’ll be discussing the farce of the meeting held by the Premier League big 5 on rumours of a European Super League and also musing over some potential ideas for the New Stamford Bridge Gates. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news with a very long but fascinating email from a listener. The Chelsea Football FanCast #346: 'Naughty 40!'

'Brana-nised!' Chelsea FanCast #345  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and Clayton Beerman to discuss Chelsea's win against Southampton and all things Chelsea! I don’t know what it is about Southampton away, but it certainly seems to be a big favourite of so many Chelsea supporters, myself included. Nothing quite like the irony of an away day that is just down the road. Great day out, loads of mates, a decent friendly pub and cheap beer. What’s not to like! It seemed to appeal to Chelsea as well as they battled through a poor performance to grind out a win against a side that had not shipped a goal or lost in 6 games. Maybe like the mellifluous water of the Rivers Itchen and Test, the tide for Chelsea is turning. On the show tonight we’ll be discussing the apparent return of Chelsea’s mental strength; applauding an important win and asking was Guus too ruthless in hooking Baba off? In part two we’ll be asking if the likes of Fabregas and Brana have really shaken off their poor early season form and is Guus right to say that Chelsea supporters have now forgiven the players. Can we realistically qualify for the Europa league by getting in the top 6 and if we do what will it mean? In part three we’ll be taking a look at a right Conte – yes it seems that the Italian with the golden syrup may well be heading to the Bridge. We’ll discuss whether he is the right man for the job and will he manage to last for more than the usual 18 months. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news with some cracking emails from listeners. The Chelsea Football FanCast #345: 'Brana-nised!'

'Citizens Caned!' Chelsea FanCast #344  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Ross Mooring and Tim Rolls, Chairman of the Chelsea Supporters Trust to discuss the games against Man City and PSG. Chelsea gave City’s youth a spanking with 5 of the best on Sunday to march onward to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, which for most supporters I know is still massive. Sadly the TV, the FA and most of all clubs like Man City seem to disagree. In fielding what was tantamount to a youth side, City basically threw the tie and in my opinion hugely disrespected the tradition of the greatest cup competition in world football. And they call us a plastic club with no history! Anyway, Eden Hazard wasn’t complaining and put in a performance redolent of last season with 3 assists and a superb goal. But is the little Belgian as happy as a Trappist monk after a night on the ale or is it all waffle? On the show tonight we’ll be discussing why the FA Cup needs to be respected and its traditions upheld and has Eden Hazard finally found his mojo? In part two we’ll be applauding some decent football played by Chelsea and we’ll be looking ahead to the next tie against Everton and asking should Guus Hiddink stay beyond the end of the season. We’ll also be looking back on a very good performance in the Champions League last week against PSG and asking if the boys in blue can overhaul the 2-1 deficit in the home leg. In part three we’ll be talking to Chelsea Supporters Trust Chairman Tim Rolls about the temporary stadium; the new stadium and the future of the Chelsea Pitch Owners and the Trusts position on all of these important issues. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news with some cracking emails from listeners. The Chelsea Football FanCast #344: 'Citizens Caned!'

'Who Ate All The Magpies?' Chelsea FanCast #343  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Levene and Mark Worrall to discuss the destruction of Newcastle on Saturday and a look ahead to the games against PSG and City. Love was most definitely in the air on Saturday as we enjoyed one of the best days of this doom laden season. For once the excellent pre and post-match was matched on the pitch as Chelsea romped home to an easy 5-1 win against Newcastle. But, were we really that good or were Newcastle quite simply abject? Has the Chelsea juggernaut turned round or will we be talking about our season being over on next week’s show. Maybe we should just enjoy the moment, like the first body tingling kiss of a new and exciting relationship. On the show tonight we’ll be asking was this a good win for Chelsea or were Newcastle just easy pickings and while the front three maybe firing on all cylinders do we still have an issue in midfield? In part two we’ll be asking who should play in the number 10 role for Chelsea – Fabregas; Hazard; Willian or Oscar? What’s the best solution to our defensive crisis and how much will it affect arguably our biggest week of the season with PSG in the Champions League and City in the Cup. In part three we’ll be asking Chelsea – Love me, Love me not? Are many supporters falling out of love with the modern game and dare I say it Chelsea? We’ll also be asking what would be worse – Arsenal or Spurs winning the league – surely that’s a no brainer? To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news with some cracking emails from listeners. The Chelsea Football FanCast #343: 'Who ate all the Magpies?'

'Drawing Conclusions' Chelsea FanCast #342  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Dan Silver, Clayton Beerman and Ross Mooring to discuss the somewhat tepid draws with Man Utd and Watford and ask why Guus is being so cautious? Arguably one of the most tepid games in recent years between Chelsea and Man Utd yesterday as two teams clearly way below their title winning levels stumbled to a 1-1 draw. Why is Guus playing it safe rather than going for the win – are we really that devoid of talent and belief? What does he have to lose – absolutely nothing? But when all is said and done, at least we have stopped losing, so perhaps we should be thankful for that. It all adds up to a lot of disgruntlement from the supporters with Chelsea at the moment though, with the torpor on the pitch only matched by the lack of atmosphere off it. I had a great time in the pub before mind… On the show tonight we’ll be saying good luck to King Kurt Happy Zouma who looked to have sustained a season ending injury yesterday and ask how will we cope without him? We’ll also ask why Guus is being so cautious – is he merely trying to protect his reputation or is he focusing on bringing some much needed stability to the club. In part two we’ll look back at some excellent performances by Costa and TBO and ask why are we not unleashing Hazard to help, and what is the point of signing a striker for 6 months on loan who will not be match fit for 6 weeks. Also would you sell Oscar for £75 million? Seems like a better idea than playing him out of position. In part three we’ll look back at the Watford game and discuss the grossly unfair treatment, yet again, of Diego Costa and ask will it lead to him going back to Spain in the summer. We’ll also say fair play to the Liverpool fans who walked out in protest at the high ticket prices – a campaign all match day supporters should get behind, To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news with some cracking emails from listeners. Chelsea Fancast #342 'Drawing Conclusions'

'The End is nigh' Chelsea FanCast #341  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and Clayton Beerman in an attempt to understand the news that John 'Captain, Leader, Legend' Terry's days at Stamford Bridge are numbered and to discuss the Cup win against MK Dons. Tonight we were supposed to be talking about an excellent 5-1 win against MK Dons, an Oscar hat-trick, hell, even a goal by Eden Hazard. But instead, we learnt last night that it seems that John Terry’s illustrious career with the club is coming to an end. We all knew he couldn’t go on forever, but surely the club would have the sense to realise the impact of the leadership characteristics someone like JT might have on the club on or off the pitch at a time of major transition. Is there such a thing as gratitude and loyalty anymore, let alone good management? Whatever the ins and outs – and I’m sure there is fault on both sides – it bears yet more testament to the emotional disconnect and palpable discord that so many supporters increasingly have with the club and modern football. On the show tonight we’ll be giving our view on the JT leaving saga, why do the club just not get it, has JT manipulated the situation and is it all just boardroom politics? Why are the club ignoring the football case for keeping JT and what does it all mean for us the supporters. In part three we’ll look back at a very good performance against MK Dons with a classy Oscar hat-trick and even an Eden Hazard goal and we’ll be having a chat about Chelsea’s transfer activity this window and asking why on earth does the Board keep getting it so wrong. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news with three cracking emails from listeners. The Chelsea Football FanCast: 'The End is nigh'

'Costa Makes the Lattes' Froth!' Chelsea FanCast #340  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Dan Silver and Dan Levene to discuss a great win against those good old specialists in failure Arsenal and delight in the subsequent meltdown of their nerdy fans. There really is nothing in football quite like beating those specialists in failure Arsenal Football Club, if only for the complete meltdown by their nerdy fans afterwards. They now haven’t even managed to score a goal against Chelsea in over 9 ½ hours of football – 6 matches. Add to that we’ve beaten them twice in our worst season for 30 years. Let’s hope we’ve terminally damaged their title chances – that would be sweet and some compensation for our trauma this season. On the show tonight we’ll be discussing why Arsenal are officially Chelsea’s bitches and why their fans have ruined football. In part two we’ll be praising Costa and Fabregas and asking if they are well and truly back and will this win and performance against Arsenal lead to a charge up the table or was it just that Arsenal are so pitiful In part three we’ll be having a chat about the transfer rumour circulating on a daily basis around Chelsea and asking who must go; who might go and who should stay at Chelsea in the summer. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news The Chelsea Football FanCast: Costa makes the Lattes Froth! Apologies for the lower sound quality than you are used to - we are having to record via Skype currently and no doubt they'll be a few teething problems. Keep the faith!

'Blue Monday' Chelsea FanCast #339  

Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Ross Mooring and Dan Silver to discuss the draws against Everton and West Brom but mostly Captain-Leader-Legend John Terry's last gasp equalizer which provoked wild scenes in the Matthew Harding End! So it is officially Blue Monday which I suppose is great if you’re a Chelsea fan or a New Order fan, but we are supposed to be more depressed on this particular Monday than any other during the year. If you’re a Chelsea fan and a listener to this show on a Monday then that will be a familiar feeling this season and it very much looked like we would be having a very depressing show going 3-2 down to Everton in the 90th minute on Saturday. But, cometh the hour cometh the captain, leader and legend John Terry who with a cheeky back heel from on offside position leveled the score, jumped in to the Matthew Harding end to provoke wild scenes. But the feeling of a great comeback and the team at long last exhibiting some fight does not paper over the cracks that we are in a state of limbo and going nowhere fast until we sort out the team and management in the summer. On the show tonight we’ll be discussing the mad second half culminating in John Terry’s last minute equalizer and we’ll be discussing Diego Costa’s role in getting us back in to the game. In part two we’ll be discussing why draws are simply not good enough; why there are too many players not up to it and why Guus is not prepared to risk the youth. In part three we’ll be discussing the shambles at Stamford Bridge where we find ourselves in a state of limbo with a temporary manager in a holding role and clear mismanagement on all fronts by the club. To wrap up in part four we’ll have the usual round up of Chelsea supporter news and a couple of cracking emails. The Chelsea Football FanCast #339: Blue Monday
