John Terry's own account of Chelsea's 2004/05 season, culminating in the championship trophy the Stamford Bridge fans have been craving for more than half a century. It is a remarkable story and a tribute to the Chelsea captain's influence on and off the field.
With endless column inches devoted to the latest sensational stories coming out of Stamford Bridge, it seems the 2004/05 football season has been dominated by the colour blue from the day that Jose Mourinho set foot on the hallowed turf of London’s most fashionable football club.
In his role as the heartbeat of Chelsea Football Club, their leader on the pitch and arguably their most important player in a generation, 24-year-old John Terry re-lives the excitement and the passion of a record-breaking season that saw the arrival of a new manager and a startling turnaround of the club's fortunes after the heartbreak of the Claudio Ranieri years.
From the start of Chelsea's campaign and the emergence of the likes of Didier Drogba and Arjen Robben, through the unforgettable Champions League tie with Barcelona and UEFA's fracas with Mourinho, to the epic climax of the season…it's all here, as told through the eyes of Chelsea's captain and motivator extraordinaire.
Terry is the driving force behind a club that threatens to dominate the English game for years to come. This celebration of a remarkable year in the life of Chelsea FC will be a must-read for all Blues fans as well as general football followers seeking an insight into one of the most talked-about clubs in any sport.
