Episode One: The Summer of '96

Episode one of an official Chelsea Football Club documentary retelling the story of the dramatic 1996/97 campaign, 20 years ago now, is available to listen to above.

Here the focus is on the summer of 1996 when Ruud Gullit took over and signed Gianluca Vialli, Frank Leboeuf and Roberto Di Matteo, and Euro '96 was making the nation fall in love with football again.

This episode features interviews with all the new signings as well as Gullit, captain Dennis Wise and many other members of the squad. There is insight from behind the scenes provided by former managing director Colin Hutchinson, with club historian Rick Glanvill and DJ Trevor Nelson remembering the summer from a supporter's perspective.
