Chelsea FanCast Preview Show #993

Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Clayton Beerman to discuss the latest Chelsea news and look ahead to Saturday's match against Nottingham Forest.


In part one we round up the latest Chelsea news including Frank’s presser with updates on the injuries to Chilwell; Mount; Cucurella; KK and Fofana. With Lewis Hall kept back from the England U20 squad, will Frank pick him on Saturday? Kante looks set to stay while Silva may be off - what do we think? And we welcome the price freeze on general admission season tickets announced by Chelsea's board this week.


In part two we preview Saturday's match against Nottinghma Forest starting with Chidge's team selection. After beating Bournemouth last weekend, has Chelsea’s confidence returned? Forest are fighting for survival but will Chelsea be on the beach? Chelsea need to finish the season well and with tough fixtures coming up it could be Chelsea’s last win this season. With that in mind we give our predictions.

  • 1138. ‘Moises From The Half-Way Line!’ Chelsea FanCast #1138

    01:57:42
    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Mark Meehan for the final show of the season, looking back at the 2-1 win against Bournemouth.In part one we discuss Moises superb goal in a match where we huffed and puffed and there was a sense of job done. It seemed to be more about the end of season vibe and of course the long goodbye for Thiago and indeed Belle Silva. In part two we discuss the fact that the club must keep Gallagher and Chalobah. We talk Poch - has he done enough to keep his job? Improvements have been made and there are definitely reasons to be cheerful, but at the end of the day without the people we see before, during and after the match, football really is nothing. And we wrap up with the final Prem Predictions results as Chelsea FanCast romp home as the Champions of the Mini-Leagues!!To get the best discount off your NordVPN plan go to https://nordvpn.com/chelseafancast.

    01:50:04
    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Dayne Whittle to look back at the win against Brighton and ahead to Bournemouth on Sunday.In part one we look back at the win against Brighton that takes Chelsea to the lofty heights of 6th. Who'd have thunk it a few weeks ago! The winning run continues.Palmer was Ice Cold in Amex, Nkunku shone and Reece James lost it - literally and nearly metaphorically. We were witness to yet another VAR and Ref shit show where nothing was done about Lamptey forearm smashing Mudryk and Jackson's goal being ruled out for no apparent reason.In part two we welcome Matt from UTCIAD for the Opposition View. Chidge asks Matt for his thoughts on Bournemouth's season. Is he happy that Manager Andoni Iraola clinched a contract extension until the 2025/26? What’s happening with the stadium? Solanke - can they keep him? Will Bournemouth be on the beach on Sunday? And how will it go and what's his prediction.In part three JK delivers his presser summary and Chidge gives his team selection. If we draw or win we get conference league; win and Spurs lose it's the Europa league; if City win the FA Cup it's the Europa League next season. We say farewell to Silva - it will be emotional? Chelsea have strong recent home form while Bournemouth have nothing to play for and poor away form. Should be simple, right? We discuss how will it go and wrap up with our predictions. To get the best discount off your NordVPN plan go to https://nordvpn.com/chelseafancast.

  • 1136. ‘Boom!’ Chelsea FanCast #1136

    01:54:30
    Stamford Chidge & Jonathan Kydd are joined by Dean Mears to look back at a great comeback against Forest and ahead to Brighton on Wednesday.In part one we discuss a great What a comeback - Poch’s subs; Reece James back; limbs fell when Jackson scored. Is the fact that Chelsea have come from behind to win 5 times this season show a growing mentality. On the negative side, Chelsea couldn’t deal with Forest's physicality (fouls), directness and crosses as we conceded two poor goals. Aina and CHO looked good - did we make a mistake letting them go? Plus a shout out to Palmers pass and Mudryks finish and a shout out to Moises continued improvement. All we need now is for Newcastle to drop points against utd or Brentford and Chelsea to win against Brighton and Bournemouth.In part two we preview Brighton v Chelsea starting with Chidge's team selection. Does Poch have a selection dilemma? There's talk of Winstanley and Stewart wanting De Zerbi to take over from Poch because he has a connection to Mudryk and lots of Brazilians whilst coaching at Shakhtar Donetsk. But he's been piss poor at Brighton so why should we take him at Chelsea.Chelsea need to be on it - snapping into tackles; concentrating defensively; not giving the ball away on Wednesday night but Brighton should be a very different prospect to Forest. We wrap up with discussing how we see it going and give our predictions before another round of 'They Played For Both'.To get the best discount off your NordVPN plan go to https://nordvpn.com/chelseafancast.
