WIN A COPY OF

'CHELSEA - WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

Wherearetheynow.jpg Have you ever wondered what happened to all of those players that you have seen come and go over the years? The heroes and villains, the saints and sinners, the stars that you talked about for years after they retired and those who you instantly forgot . WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

The old belief was that ex-footballers became publicans or TV pundits. However, we hope that you will be interested, and in some cases amused, to find out that this is no longer the case.

The 450+ characters featured are now scattered around the globe and have provided a pleasing variety of stories. For example, which pair of former players set up a window cleaning business, only to discover that they were both afraid of heights? Which ex-Blue became an MP in his homeland? Whose daughter was named ‘Chelsea’? How many former players

have tasted porridge at ‘Her Majesty’s pleasure’? Who is rich and who has been declared bankrupt?

Relive memories of all of your favourite stars of yesteryear in this fascinating insight into life after Chelsea.

This book, compiled by Neil Fissler and Andy Pringle, will answer all those questions and many more.

Andy Pringle has kindly provided a complimentary copy of the book to be a prize in a competition.

We have a winner

Only three people sent in the right answer to all three questions (the answers being Magnus Hedman, Paul Elliott, Scott Minto and Robert Fleck) and they were Tea Bar Boy, Plokoon and Thunderdan.

Mod put all three names into amusing egg shaped capsules which unscrew in an anti clockwise direction and we invited the cast of Eldorado down for the voting ceremony.

Our winner is........

Tea Bar Boy

Well done mate - send me your address.
