FOREWORD BY FRANK LAMPARD
Chelsea: The Complete Record is the definitive account of one of the world’s most popular and powerful clubs, recounting every conceivable detail of its 110 year-long history. Encompassing five league titles, seven FA Cups and five European trophies, Chelsea are one of the most successful clubs in English football’s modern history.
Chelsea official historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton have spent years trawling through the archives to uncover every conceivable fact and figure about the club. In this monumental work they have painstakingly provided details of every game, line up, goalscorer, attendance and result, as well as a plethora of other facts and figures.
Weighing in at 550 pages and with full appendixes detailing the careers of the hundreds of players to have turned out for the club as well as a season by season narrative account of Chelsea’s history, this is the must-read book for every fan of one of European football’s modern powerhouses.

Simply one of the best researched and produced books around. Both authors have followed on the sterling work of their predecessors Hockings and Cheshire to produced THE up to date record of our great club

Many people nowadays prefer digital sources fore reference but for me you can't beat a book like this. Well laid out and full of all the facts about every game Chelsea have played. A worthy successor to my Scott Cheshire book.

Excellent book, settles all chelsea related arguments too quickly though, a small gripe would be a lack of photos but you can't have everything, overall very enjoyable book highly recommended

The book is everything you would want in a records book. Every fact and statistic you need in a clear and simple layout.
Brilliant for looking up forgotten details on distant games you've attended.
