Serious Case of the Blues by Clive Batty
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The follow-up to the acclaimed and best-selling 'Kings of the King's Road: The Great Chelsea Team of the 60s & 70s', '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 old ground had a team to match. And yet, despite financial crisis after financial crisis and the threat of property developers moving in, relegation to the 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 Micky Droy, David Speedie to Pat Nevin - and fans who remember with affection a troubled era, and the result is a colourful trip down memory lane. The 80s may only have been 30 or so years before Abramovich's modern day Chelsea, but it feels like a million.
