Celery! Representing Chelsea in the 1980s by Kelvin Barker
Celery! Representing Chelsea in the 1980s, Kelvin Barker's timeless True Blue classic - updated and revised second edition brought to...
From Kelvin's own amusing tales of hugging skipper Colin Pates on the hallowed Stamford Bridge turf and serenading Bob Geldof in the King’s Road, through to the incredible behind-the-scenes stories as told by the players themselves – the mysterious case of Mickey Thomas’ disappearing gold chain, how a kick in the head made Joey Jones a fans’ favourite, the role physio Norman Medhurst’s hair played in David Speedie’s departure from the club, and many more – this book lays bare the facts of representing Chelsea in the 1980s, as recalled by those who were there.
"A little bit of nostalgia mixed in with some extraordinarily accurate history ... Celery! provides an authoritative education on an important time for the club". PAT NEVIN, Chelsea wing wizard. "Without a shadow of a doubt, this is the best book I have ever read about Chelsea Football Club". PETE SAMPSON, CFCnet "Come along, come along, come along and sing this song. We’re the boys in blue in Division Two and we won’t be here for long". KERRY DIXON, Chelsea legend.
