The book that every Chelsea fan must have is back with a revised edition packed with a wealth of new features. This updated edition of The Pocket Book of Chelsea features a brand new cover design and is bursting with the colourful history of one of England’s biggest clubs.

Learn about Chelsea’ glorious history, from the very first team back in 1905, to the 1971 European Cup-Winners Cup champions, to the Double winners of 2010. Take a trip down memory lane with classic matches such as the 5-0 thrashing of Leeds that clinched promotion in 1984 or the unforgettable win over Barcelona in 2005. Savour the skills of a host of club legends, be it Bentley and Bonetti, Wise and Zola, or current heroes Drogba and Lampard.

Packed with original pictures, hand-drawn illustrations and genuine Arsenal memorabilia, this beautifully packaged book salutes the greatest goals (who can forget Roberto Di Matteo’s first-minute screamer in the 1997 FA Cup Final against Middlesbrough?), legendary managers and tactics of the club’s most successful teams, as well as the most memorable kits worn over the years –including the 1972 away kit inspired by the Magical Magyars of the 1950s. On top of all that, there is also a club directory, a detailed diagram of Stamford Bridge, honours, records and stats, plus a foreword by club favourite Kerry Dixon.
