The Rafalution will not be glorified! The Chelsea Football FanCast #227
Stamford Chidge and the crew discuss Chelsea’s two wins and the re-invention of some new striker called Torres! We’re joined by cfcuk writers Gate 17 legend Mark Worrall and Walter Otton to discuss Walter’s new book “The Red Hand Gang” and Chelsea Brasil’s Felipe tells us all about the Club World Cup
The Fat Spanish Waiter finally breaks his Chelsea duck and delivers two wins in a week, with the help of his countryman Torres scoring 4 goals. Well that justifies his appointment doesn’t it? Err No. Whilst it’s great to see Chelsea scoring goals and winning again, the strength of the opposition should be taken into account – i.e. very poor, and we’ve seen plenty of Torres false dawns over the last two years.
So while we contemplate the end of our Champions League campaign before it had a chance to get going, we can now look forward to Channel 5 Thursday nights in the Europa Cup. But before that we have a chance to put things right by becoming Champions of the World in Japan. And on an even brighter note, the win against Sunderland saw the return of Super Frank Lampard…Oh and well done to the Chelsea FanCast’s favourite boxer Dazzling Darren Barker for knocking out Kerry Hope in 4 rounds on Saturday night.
A couple of very special guests on the show this week – cfcuk writers – Gate 17 legend Marco Worrall and Walter Otton. Walter has just released a book: The Red Hand Gang – a book about “PASSION. CORRUPTION. DETERMINATION. DEVASTATION.THE RED HAND IS THE COLOUR OF JUSTICE.THIS ANTI-NESTLE FOOT SOLDIER OF FAITH WILLNEVER EAT SHREDDED WHEAT”. We’ll be talking to these two about all things Chels and Walter’s book in the show, and they do a Chelsea FanCast first – a book reading. A bit like Jackanory but for Chelsea fans!
As well as all this we discussing the matches against New Zealand and Sunderland and we have the Fannies where we award our Man of the Match; Chant of the Match; Guinness and Celery moments.
We also have a good old sing song in ‘Shall we sing a song for you’, and Felipe gives us his preview of the Club World Cup in Japan where Chelsea face Monterray and then hopefully Corinthians in the Final on Sunday. To wrap up as ever, we answer your questions in ‘You’re on CFFC’.
