Who's Who of Chelsea is the comprehensive guide to the legendary London club that promises to settle any disputes amongst its supporters once and for all. Packed with facts and stats, it contains profiles of every Chelsea player to have appeared in a competitive match for the team since the club was founded in 1905.

Since then, some truly great players have been associated with the club. These include star goalkeeper Peter Bonetti; the goal-machine himself, Jimmy Greaves; strikers Roy Bentley, Peter Osgood, Kerry Dixon and Bobby Tambling; Italians Roberto Di Matteo, Gianluca Vialli and Gianfranco Zola; Dutchman Ruud Gullit; record appearance-maker Ron 'Chopper' Harris; midfielders John Hollins, Terry Venables, Alan Hudson and Charlie Cooke; wingers Peter Houseman, Frank Blunstone and Eric Parsons; defenders John Dempsey, Marvin Hinton, Mickey Droy, John Mortimore and David Webb; the Sillett brothers, John and Peter; all members of José Mourinho's 2004-05 squad; and other superstars from yesteryear, including George Barber, Jack Crawford, Willie Ferguson, Hugh Gallacher, Jack Harrow, George Hilsdon, Alex Jackson, Tommy Law, Tommy Lawton, Bobby McNeil, George Mills, George Smith, Dick Spence, Albert Thain, Jack Townrow and Tommy Walker.

As well as providing full details on these legends and many others, this indispensable guide also lists the men who have managed Chelsea down the years, including Ted Drake, who guided the club to its first League championship in 1955, Tommy Docherty, Dave Sexton, John Neal, Glenn Hoddle, Claudio Ranieri and José Mourinho.

Featuring rare photographs of Stamford Bridge heroes past and present, Who's Who of Chelsea is essential reading for any supporter who wants to know everything there is to know about the Premiership's most glamorous club.

    Does exactly what it says on the tin.However, there are a few errors, including:Clive Allen's appearances and goals listed are wrong; John McNaught and Mark Nicholls' goals are not entered.Tony Cascarino left in 1994 not 93; Bryan Pop Robson turned pro in 1962 not 72; and Kevin McAllister's entry refers to the Full Members Cup victory in 1984 instead of 1986.Jess Hogh's entry says 'an able deputy to the French trio of Desailly, LeBoeuf and Melchiot' - but Melchiot is Dutch.p37 has a reference to Graham Stanley - should read Garry.
