Stamford Chidge and the crew get together to rip into the latest week of bloodletting at Chelsea, and discuss the goings on down at the Bridge!

Ooops we’ve done it again as that well known Chelsea fan Brittney Spears would say. 6 months after bringing home the European and FA Cup, and making a good fist of changing the way we play, the club sacks Robbie Di Matteo. Why? Because we encountered a blip in form – largely down to bad luck and missing vital members of the team? No. It appears that Roman Abramovich simply didn’t fancy Robbie, so in typical ruthless style, Robbie – a legend at Chelsea and a true Gent – was dispensed with in pretty classless circumstances.

What an absolute disgrace, but to compound matters, in spite of the well-known feelings of the supporters on the subject, the club then appoints the last manager we would ever want to see at the club. Rafa Benitez. The man who issued so many hateful barbs against the club and its supporters; the man who started Liverpool’s decline; the man who took Jose’s treble winning Inter Milan side to mid table within 6 months; the man who has quite rightly been out of work for the last 2 years.

And they wonder why we are so pissed off? Do they give a damn about what the supporters think? Clearly not. Be in no doubt – this is most definitely the club saying to the supporters it is not your club and we don’t care what you think or want.

Dark times indeed, but you know what, this is nothing new…Chelsea has always been as mad as this, which is one of the reasons we still love it so much. As far as I am concerned I will never support Benitez, but I will always get behind the players 100%. Players, Managers, The Board and Owners come and go, we the supporters are the only constant and we’re here for life. Worth remembering that.

On the show tonight we spend more time discussing the Rafa debacle than the match itself, after all not much of interest happened on the pitch, but we will have the Fannies where we award our Man of the Match; Chant of the Match; Guinness and Celery moments.

We’ve also got a good old sing song in Shall we sing a song for you, and Lauren will be giving us her Loan Report on all the Chelsea players currently on loan. And to wrap up we’ll be answering your questions in ‘You’re on CFFC’.

Don’t forget you can now listen to the show live by going to on your computer or IPhone, and you’ll be able to interact with us live on mixlr, twitter @ChelseaFanCast or Facebook on the fan page. You can also email us at
