Chelsea were formed and
entered the league in
1905. Their early years
were uneventful and it
was'nt untill 1955 when
they won their
honour,the league title.
However,the late sixties
and early seventies were
chelsea's hayday as the
popularity of the kings
road grew and the club
became the most stylish
team in England.
In 1970,Chelsea met their
antithesis,Leeds united in
the FA cup final and after
a 2-2 draw at Wembly,the
replay became known as
the dirtiest post war cup
final. Chelsea went on to
win 2-1 and the following
season,they added the
Europen cup winners
However,as the area
became less trendy the
team suffered decline
and spent a few seasons
in the second divison
finally regaining their
divison 1 place in 1989.
Chelsea added to their
hall of silverware in 97/98
season by winning the
league cup and European
The club had shocked the
football world by the
sacking of Ruud Gullit in
February 1998,however
that was soon forgotten
as Gianluca Vialli was
appointed the new coach
and soon proved his
capability in this role.
When Vialli was replaced
by fellow italian Claudio
Ranieri,Chelsea began to
try and move away from
their tag as constant
under-achievers,and got
a huge boost in that
respect in the summer
of 2003.
Few had heard of Russian
billionnaire Roman
Abramovich before he
bought Chelsea,but his
name was on everyone's
lips soon afterwards as
he financed a huge
spending like of which the
game has never seen
and put Chelsea well and
truly with the big boys
When Jose Mourinho
arrived in 2004,his self
spread through the club
and they soon started to
really live up to
expectation,first winning
the Carling cup and then
the Braclays premiership
at a canter. They didnt
had to wait too long for
another title reclaiming
the trophy a year later.
