Well we went out of the Champs league and now drop into Europa. Chance tonight to bounce back, here’s the It’s a fix update :
15) MONDAY DECEMBER 12TH CHELSEA AWAY KO 8 PM
Moved to the dreaded Monday night for TV.
Promoted in 1988/89 (with us) and despite being as daft a club as us until the Harding and Abramovich money came in they‘ve been ever present in the Prem and have picked up a host of trophies missing out only on the European Cup/Champions League. This is the 133rd League meeting. Most recent connection is Danny Sturridge, transferred for a pittance cos we couldn’t handle him.
Last season at COMS in September City registered a 1-0 win, Chelsea’s first defeat, King Carlos netting after 59 minutes. Crowd was 47,203 with 2,844 Chelski
At The Bridge in March it was a disappointing 2-0 loss. Luiz putting them ahead (79), and Ramires clinching it (90) at the death. Crowd was 41,741, with 1452 City.
This season so far they’re in 4th place with 28 points from 14 games.
In the Carling Cup they went out to Liverpool.
In the Chimps league they’re through to the knockout stage and in the FA Cup they’re at home to Pompey.
Our form at the Bridge : Only 2 wins (4-2 in 1992/93, and 2009/10) otherwise it’s been 9 defeats and 3 draws.
Stamford Bridge capacity : 42,420 (1,472 for City)
Comment : Another new manager for Chelsea, but despite playing well it’s been 4 defeats so far in the Prem and Torres hasn’t done much since he stopped dyeing his hair. Never to be underestimated though. Their move from the Bridge has been blocked so far by fans’ groups and Terry has got himself in a mess again with his alleged racist comment slur. All a bit of a pickle which we must take advantage of, though Drogba looks dangerous.
Groundwise: We’re in the Shed Stand behind the goal, ticket prices are hefty again.
WWTWTWShite? Crowds were down to an average of 12,672 in 1992/93 and this season’s average home attendance is 41,611.
Away Day Zines: The Chelsea Independent, The Westander, Cockney Rebel, Curious Blue, Mathew Harding’s Blue and White Army, Carefree (all as far as we know)
Sat Nav is : SW6 1HS.
Parking is difficult and expensive so the best bet is probably to park up and come in by tube.
Pleased to say that KK 193 is at the printers, more on that shortly
