Issue Extracts

Chelsea Independent Supporters Association's front cover - Issue 10
The Chelsea Independent – Issue 10 – January 1989 Peter Collins was the editor of this issue. First, it’s down to business matters, with the announcement of a price rise of 10p to 30p per issue.

In his editorial, Mick Allpress summed up the close season's player activity. Bobby...

Let’s sell him!” It’s subtitled “Sale of the Century.” The eagle eyed amongst you will know that this is a reference to the very unpopular transfer of Jason Cundy to Tottenham. This issue was edited by Nick Brown and...
