    'Ain't No Love in the Heart of the City' Chelsea FanCast #451

    Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd and Liam Twomey, ESPN's Chelsea correspondent to look back at a very disappointing and somewhat mutinous night at Stamford Bridge where Man Utd knocked Chelsea out of the FA Cup.


    On the show tonight we discuss the nightmare at Stamford Bridge, Sarri’s shortcomings, the substitutions and the increasing toxicity and vitriol aimed at the manager by the supporters who he seems to have lost.

     

    In part two we ask does Sarri have to go now? Is his position untenable? Is the situation worse than it was with Rafa, AVB and Scolari? What must happen to limit the damage and what potential replacements are there longer term. Zidane and Laurent Blanc have been mentioned in dispatches but what about Frank Lampard?

     

    In parts three and four, as you can imagine we have had loads of emails with Chelsea supporters venting their spleen at what’s going on with the club so we have dedicated two parts to read them all out! It's all part of the therapy!

    Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio 15/02/2019

    Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio - the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge and Jonathan Kydd join Aaron Paul to look back at Chelsea's first away win of 2019 against Malmo in the Europa Cup and much as it pains us we revisit the horror of last weekend's 6-0 defeat against Man City. We also look forward to Monday nights FA Cup tie against Man Utd.


    Ollie Harbord, Chelsea correspondent for Football.London, joins us on the phone to report back on Friday's press conference with Gianfranco Zola. Why was Chelsea Chairman Bruce Buck at Sarri's press conference and watching the warm up against Malmo from the touchline? What does this bode for Sarri's future at Chelsea and what too of the future for Callum Hudson-Odoi who didn't get a place in the starting line up against Malmo?


    The win against Malmo, while not completely convincing, was at least an away victory. Annoyingly Chelsea switched off allowing Malmo to score and get back in to the tie, putting more pressure on Chelsea for the return leg than they would have liked. But does it underline Chelsea's defensive issues and is it a question of concentration or Sarri's tactics.


    The shocking defeat to Man City heaped more pressure on Sarri and suspicions that he may get the sack sooner rather than later, but is he solely to blame for Chelsea's 'up and down' form or should the players and the Club shoulder the blame too? Is Sarri stupid, arrogant or both? Will the Board pull the trigger if it looks like Chelsea will miss out on Champions' League qualification? Will anything ever change in terms of managers being wasted unless changes happen in the Boardroom, a willingness to spend the money need to revamp the squad and the hiring of a Director of Football?


    Looking ahead to the FA Cup tie against Man Utd we recognise it's importance as a classic cup tie, but how important is it for Sarri's future? Martin Blackburn from the Sun joins us on the phone to give us the 'Opposition View' and believes that Utd's loss to PSG in the Champions League will make them more determined against Chelsea on Monday as their last chance to win a trophy this season.


    To wrap up we answer this week's Chelsea FanCast Quiz: Since 1945 how many times has Chelsea lost 6-0 and what year and against which teams did they lose?

    'The Horror...The Horror...' Chelsea FanCast #450

    Stamford Chidge is joined by Jonathan Kydd, Alex 'The Girl Who Likes Balls' Churchill and Joe Tweeds to look back at the horrific 6-0 hiding dished out by Man City on Sunday (from behind the sofa of course).


    On the show tonight we discuss the goals that hit Chelsea for six. Could they have been avoided? Was it just a bad day at the office or have the warning signs been there for months and how much of it was down to City just being phenomenally good?

     

    In part two we try to give some historical context to the defeat – just how bad was it; and with many Chelsea supporters calling for Sarri to be sacked we mount the case for the prosecution and the case for the defence and ask is there a realistic solution to the perpetual chaos Chelsea find themselves in.

     

    In part three we have an interview with this month’s Hyundai Extra Mile competition winner who is an 8-year-old girl called Beth and to give us some perspective and to prove there are more important things in life than football we’ll be plugging Kenny Rice’s forthcoming do in aid of Leukemia and wishing the best to Chelsea cult hero Mickey Thomas who faces his own battle with cancer.

     

    Finally, Jonathan has some great emails to read out this week and I wrap up with the usual Parish notices.

    Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio - the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Jonathan Kydd and Clayton Beerman join Aaron Paul to look back at Chelsea's horrible 5-0 win against Huddersfield Town and look ahead to this weekend's big match against Man City.


    Ollie Harbord, Chelsea correspondent for Football.London, joins us on the phone to report back on Maurizio Sarri's press conference, where Sarri was asked about Chelsea's chances in the title race, Higuain's impact, Hazard's comments on his future and Chelsea's need for consistency.


    Looking back at the win against Huddersfieldto we discuss Chelsea being consistently inconsistent; is Higuain the solution to Sarriball and will this be Eden Hazard's last season with Chelsea?


    Chelsea has a tough month ahead with matches against Man City, Man Utd and Spurs. How will this affect their chances of a top four finish and with City first up, will Chelsea's big match players turn up? Will Chelsea play defensively like they did in the 2-0 win against City at home?


    Former Man City striker Dennis Tuert joins us for 'The Opposition View' to give us the low down on City; are they over their blip? What has been the secret of Pep's success and how does Dennis see the match going?


    To wrap up we answer this week's Quiz on which players played for both Chelsea and Man City.

    Having scored two goals on his home Premier League debut, Kerry tells us what he thinks of Gonzalo Higuain and the potential of his partnership with Eden Hazard. Talking of Hazard, Kerry discusses whether or not he thinks Hazard will leave Chelsea at the end of this season and what Hazard's impact on the club has been.


    Alvaro Morata has already left and Kerry, never really convinced by the Spaniard, reflects on his time with Chelsea Kerry also gives his view on the Callum Hudson-Odoi situation.


    To wrap up Chidge and Kerry discuss Chelsea's prospects against Man City this Sunday. What would be a good result against City and can we get it? Who are the main City threats and who will be key for Chelsea.
