CHELSEA TV's NEW SATURDAY SOLUTION
This coming Saturday sees the Blues return to league action with a short trip across west London to Loftus Road to take on Queens Park Rangers, and those supporters unable to attend the game can keep updated with proceedings with a brand new show on Chelsea TV.
On air from 2.30pm to 5pm, Wherever They May Be sees presenter Jason Cundy joined by Kerry Dixon and Tommy Langley in the studio, and will feature live reports throughout the game from Neil Barnett, as well as interviews with journalists covering the game from the press box and live reports from all other Barclays Premier League matches, ensuring there is no need to watch any other channel.
Cundy, a regular on Chelsea TV who has turned out for the Blues in London derbies, is looking forward to the new show and cannot wait to get started, as he explains.
'We will all be there with our headphones,' says Cundy. 'The three of us will be watching the game, giving our opinions on how the match is going and who's playing well.
'We will all be wearing the same Chelsea tops we wore when we played for the club. It will be professional with a partisan opinion. It's a relaxed show which will have plenty of fun, chat and laughter.
'We'll have half-an-hour pre-match build-up and it will be a combination of commentary and assessing the game from a fan's perspective.
'Essentially, for those supporters unable to get to the game, this is the perfect solution.'
The former Chelsea defender has been impressed with our early season form, with three wins ensuring we return to Premier League action after the international break at the top of the table.
A victory at Loftus Road on Saturday would cement our position, and while Cundy believes it's imperative we bounce back from our Super Cup defeat to Atletico Madrid, there is still an awful long way to go as far as the title race is concerned.
'It's very early days, although it's been a good start,' he explains. 'The biggest problem facing Robbie [Di Matteo] going into the season was integrating the new players, and he's done that, with Eden Hazard in particular proving a revelation.
'The way we're set up to play now means I can see us scoring plenty of goals, although we are also likely to concede one or two along the way.
'It will be very tight, Manchester United and Manchester City can both be hurt defensively, but there's obviously a long way to go.
'Saturday's game is a big one. It's important we put the Super Cup game behind us as quickly as possible and move on, because that was a poor performance.
'It's a local derby with a lot riding on it. Both teams will be desperate to get the three points; we lost at Loftus Road last season, while they were hammered 6-1 at Stamford Bridge in April, so both teams will be out for revenge.'
You can watch the first edition of Wherever They May Be this coming Saturday from 2.30pm on Chelsea TV.
