The fully revised and updated 2012 edition of the Chelsea Miscellany is essential reading for fans of the Blues

Written by respected journalist Clive Batty, a lifelong Chelsea devotee and prolific author of books on the club, this goldmine of information reveals all manner of facts, feats and stories from the proud history of the reigning European Champions.

A rich source of quirky trivia, the book explains how the club adopted its famous blue shirts, reveals the alien invasion that nearly took place at Stamford Bridge, and tells the story of the larger than life goalkeeper who struck fear into opponent's hearts.

In addition, it also relives Chelsea's part in the strangest goal ever scored, explains how the Blues fielded the most expensive Premier League team ever assembled and celebrates the wit and wisdom of Jose Mourinho in a chapter dedicated to the finest musings of the 'special one.'

Alongside these meticulously researched entries are lists of the club's best and worst buys, record appearance holders, cult heroes and villains and top goalscorers - as well as detailed season-by-season records to satisfy even the most ardent of statisticians.

With its extensive array of facts, feats and anecdotes to chew over, this labour of love is the perfect Christmas present for the Chelsea fan in your life - young or old.

Beautifully printed on imitation cloth.
