Chelsea FC, as someone once observed, has always done what other clubs have done, but not necessary in the same order. A stone’s throw from the King’s Road, draped with showbiz connections, and not even based in the borough from which it takes its name, Chelsea is an enigma. Run by the entrepreneurial Mears dynasty, Ken ‘electric fence’ Bates and now the Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich, the club has enough entertaining quirks and anecdotes to keep you entertained for ages. It is also a club whose history is filled with glorious games, unique facts, bizarre statistics, larger-than-life players and a special brand of supporter. And, as this book proves, far from being the imposters Kipling suggested, triumph and disaster make for a fantastically entertaining read.

There are few soccer clubs in the world that attract as much interest in the modern game as Chelsea. Whether it is the latest observations from former coach Jose Mourinho, his successor Antonio Conte, big-money transfer targets, the style of play or results in Europe, everybody thinks they know what's happening--or at least has an opinion on it. The arrival of Russian billionaire tycoon Roman Abramovich as owner turned a glamorous club with a long history of under-achievement into an international powerhouse. After one championship in 99 years, the Blues have, in a dozen years, won four Premier League titles, plus the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League, four FA Cups and three Football League Cups. The club always was a magnet for well-known names--vaudeville legend George Robey played for the Pensioners in the club's earliest days--and, in the modern era, Stamford Bridge has become home to a dazzling array of world stars. From Ron "Chopper" Harris and Ken Bates through Ruud Gullit, Roberto Di Matteo and Glenn Hoddle to Mourinho, Costa, John Terry, Diego Costa, David Luiz, and Thibaut Courtois, there is no lack of characters to draw on for quotes.
