Personalised Chelsea Football Book
- Gift Details
Here’s the no.1 gift to stir the heart of any fan of the Blues – The Personalised Chelsea Football Book! Chelsea has enjoyed more than their fair share of success since their formation in 1905. This book begins in the same year and covers the club’s fortunes through to the end of last season.
Look back on the club’s victorious and not-so-victorious accomplishments that have landed them where they are today, through the press coverage they’ve gained over the last 100 years. Is there a better gift to make a true Blues fan feel nostalgic?
The next few years promise to be a revolution at Stamford Bridge following the arrival of club legend Frank Lampard as head coach and an apparent new-found willingness to promote the many young English prospects in the club’s ranks. But whether this period is a success or not (most immediately whether the side finishes in the top four) won’t threaten Chelsea’s position as one of the top four most successful clubs in the country on trophies won.
Now, you can relive all those triumphs, with the personalised Chelsea newspaper book. Delve into over a hundred years of Blues history, right up until last season, showcased through news articles written and printed at the time.
The new generations of Chelsea fans will undoubtedly be familiar with The Blues’ Premier League successes since Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003. Each of the title wins is covered in depth, as are Cup Final victories, including rarely seen coverage to chart Chelsea’s fortunes prior to the hugely successful Noughties.
The 1955 league championship, as well as various cup victories in the 60s and 70s all feature, in addition to the chance to relive the exploits of club legends like Peter Bonetti, Gianfranco Zola and Frank Lampard.

Chelsea FC was founded in 1905 by Henry Augustus Mears. Mears had redeveloped an old West London Athletics ground, but couldn’t find a football club to make use of it. He decided to create his own team and aimed to make them a glamorous side that would put on a show every week for the local Londoners. Expensive signings helped Chelsea to live up to Mears’ ideas and the club built steadily towards success. Chelsea won First Division titles in the Blues’ fiftieth and one hundredth year. They also claimed three FA Cups by the year 2000. Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich bought the club in 2003 and invested heavily into the side. Chelsea subsequently became an even bigger force in the game and gradually developed into one of the top football clubs in Europe. Success in the Abramovich era has included Premiership titles, a steady flow of cup wins and a consistent place in the latter rounds of the Champions League, Football Books on Chelsea - Inspired Gifts
