Introducing The Blueprint
Listen now
The Blueprint, a ground-breaking new documentary series about Chelsea Football Club, is finally here!   And The Chels has been given access to the first episode – the most detailed interview ever given by former Blues owner Ken Bates!   Produced by Chels regulars Garry Hayes and Ceri Levy, The Blueprint tells the story of modern Chelsea and how the club has changed football.   The full series will drop in May this year, but Garry and Ceri have released the Ken Bates Tapes now to whet the appetite.   Bates reveals all about his time at Chelsea. From saving the club from financial ruin to appointing Glenn Hoddle as manager; his boardroom clashes with Matthew Harding and, of course, Bates takes listeners inside the deal that sold Chelsea to Roman Abramovich.   What you’re about to hear are the first 15 minutes of the Ken Bates Tapes.   To hear the full interview, search for “The Blueprint: How Chelsea FC Changed Football” wherever you get your podcasts.   Or, just click this link:  @chelseapodcast  Produced by Paul Myers and Mike Leigh  Engineered by Leon Gorman  A Playback Media Production  Copyright 2023 Playback Media Ltd - Learn more about your ad choices.
