    Book details

It took just seven weeks for Chelsea to splash more than #110 on the finest players the world football scene had to offer. Practically overnight, the wage bill soared to #1.5 million a week. From Real Madrid to Arsenal, the football world sat up and took notice. This book reveals how Chelsea were within days of financial meltdown when the multi-billionaire Russian took charge. For the first time ever it discloses the rival bids, the involvement of David Mellor and the investigations of city watchdogs the FSA into potential insider share dealings. Most remarkable of all, the text reveals Chelsea's negotiations with Sven Goran Eriksson and Ferguson for the manager's position, as well as their discussions with even more of the leading lights of the footballing world such as Wayne Rooney, Stephen Gerrard and Michael Owen.

    Firstly this is not a book about football. This is about another metamorphosis of an institution close to the hearts of hundreds of thousand of football supporters throughout the world. A tale of how one man through his excessive wealth bought Chelsea Football Club and sent shock waves through the biggest most popular sport in the world.It tells the story of the acquisition of Chelsea Football Club, the individuals concerned the decisions made, the commentary at the time (not so long ago after all) the expectations and the ambitions. In fact it tells us all of this several times over.Harry Harris is a football writer not a business writer a biographer or social commentary writer and boy does it show. His explanation of the business transactions prior to, during and after the sale are confused and opaque; his writing of dialogue between the main protagonists is confusing – I often wasn’t sure who was meant to have said what to who and the constant repetition of the same events from differing points of view was tedious, at one point he repeated the same paragraph (Chelsea hadn’t won at Liverpool since 1935) twice on the same page.Even taking into account the above which maybe down to a poor editor this book gets 5 stars for a Chelsea fan but probably only 3 stars – at best – for someone who is only remotely interested.

    This may be a book for Chelsea fans but if you like football then don't spend your well earned money on this book.Harry Harris supports Chelsea and continuelly writes books about them because he wants to make them famous in writing terms.He doesen't write about football,then why does he call himself a football writer.He writes about money more than players.If you support Chelsea buy this book,if you like Harry Harris buy this book but if you like proper writing then read a book that is not written by a one sided,old fashioned little man.
