Stamford Chidge and the team are joined by football journalist Dan Levene to discuss Chelsea in v Fulham and Basel and ask what’s the matter with Mata on the simultaneous TV, Radio and Podcast of what is commonly known as The Chelsea FanCast!

Saturday was one of those games which define why we love football. It had nothing to do with the game which was fairly average, it had nothing to do with the result which frankly should have been a given. It had everything to do with one man – John Mikel Obi who scored his first Chelsea goal in his last 261 games – a stat which has become a massive feature on this show much to my hilarity, and you would have got massive odds in soccer betting at Sportsbook on that happening. To say we went mental is an understatement.

Other than that it was most certainly a game of two halves and the win put us top of the table if only for a day. Crisis what crisis? Time to keep calm and support Jose and the team, even if there is an issue with Mata (and possibly Luiz), both of whom were not even in the squad. Well, what minds doesn’t Mata and what Mata’s doesn’t mind in our view. Oh and to top off a great day, Jose completely owned Jamie Redknapp in the post-match briefing.

We have a special guest in the form of Dan Levene a freelance journalist who covers Chelsea for various papers. He is the Chelsea man for our local paper, the Fulham Chronicle, and is best known to Chelsea fans as @blueschronicle on Twitter. He has worked in press and PR for 20 years, and has supported Chelsea since Pat Nevin was the glorious future of this club.

We discuss the win against Fulham, the loss to Basel, John Mikel Obi’s goal and the Mata matter on the show and we also award our match day awards for the Fulham game – The Fannies – for Man of the Match; Chant of the Match; Guinness and Celery Moments. And of course to wrap up we’ve got more stats from Chelsea Chadder and all the latest Chelsea supporter related news.
