The boys are ecstatic having watched the Chels put 7 past Sunderland in an awesome display of ‘total’ football. It’s all about the ‘Magnificent 7’ brought to you by the Chelsea FanCast’s very own magnificent 7!!
A very happy podcast as the regulars run the rule over Chelsea’s first 7 up in the league since Wallsall in the 80’s. The boys ask whether the outstanding goal fests in the last two games playing 4:3:3 will consign the 4:Diamond:2 to history, and so much for missing the Africans, as we could have scored 15!!
Belletti, a revelation in the holding role, Lampard, Cole x 2, Anelka and even Malouda are the stand outs in an exceptional team performance and feature high up in the Man of the Match award. “Rafa Benitez, we want you to stay” is the strong candidate for both the Celery moment and Chant of the match but is chased hard by some very welcome, noisy and celebratory terrace songs from the Bridge. For the Guinness moment, it’s hard to look further than the combination of JT’s 40 yard pin point pass and Ashley Cole’s sublime touch and finish or as Dr Mart repeatedly puts it, in the style of ‘Rainman’: “Cole’s Goal”
A Mick Greenaway classic get’s an airing in “We’re out to show the World the way to sing!”, and this one requires the most drunk and loudest mouth to lead the singing. Surprisingly, it’s Stu who assumes the role not Chidge!
ChelTel casts his eye over the latest Chelsea gossip, including Joe Cole’s stalling contract talks and the possibility that Carletto might actually be telling the truth about not buying in the January window.
Dr Mart answers questions on the legendary Babs, World Cup FanCasts, Chelsea’s Greatest Dane, and the last game with the West Stand’s ‘benches’ in ‘Dear Mart’ and Chidge picks the best of the posts from the Facebook group from an array of names that the boys think he has made up! Posts this week include laughing at the Bin Dippers, the forthcoming CFFC website, and new found fans in Newfoundland.
