The follow-up to the acclaimed and best-selling Kings of the King's Road, A Serious Case of the Blues goes back in time to the 1980s when Stamford Bridge was a crumbling wreck of a stadium and, at times, the ground had a team to match.

And yet, despite financial crisis after financial crisis, the threat of property developers moving in, relegation to the old Second Division and hooliganism on the crumbling terraces, it is an era still fondly remembered by Chelsea fans and one from which true blue heroes like Kerry Dixon and Pat Nevin still emerged.

In A Serious Case of the Blues, Clive Batty has tracked down the players – from Kerry Dixon to Mickey Droy, from David Speedie to Pat Nevin – and fans who remember with affection the troubled era, and the result is a colourful trip down memory lane.

The 80's may only have been 20 or so years before Ambramovich's modern day Chelsea, but it feels like a million.
