History of Chelsea FC


In 1904 H.A. Mears acquired the Stamford Bridge athletics stadium with the goal of turning into a soccer stadium. He then planned the establishment of a new football club after an offer given to Fulham to use the stadium was rejected.

Given there is a club named Fulham, the name of Chelsea which is a small town adjacent to the stadium was chosen as the name of the new club. Other names such as Kensington FC, Stamford Bridge FC and London FC were considered for selection.

Chelsea was founded on March 10, 1905, in a pub The Rising Sun (now The Butcher's Hook restaurant) and first played in the Football League competition.

John Robertson a 28-year-old Scottish national player when it was chosen concurrently Chelsea's first player-manager position.

A number of players were recruited from various clubs to strengthen the team, such as goalkeeper William "Fatty" Foulke from Sheffield United, Jimmy Windridge and Bob McRoberts from Small Heath, and Frank Pearson from Manchester City.

Their first match took place on 2 September 1905, an away game against Stockport County. Chelsea lost by a score of 0-1. While their first home game is a 4-0 victory in a friendly against Liverpool. Robertson was also Chelsea's first goalscorer in a competitive match in a 1-0 victory over Blackpool.

Chelsea suffered a number of degraded promotions in Division One and Second Division Premier League after successfully reaching promotion to Division One in their second season. Their best achievement in the early years was to reach the 1915 FA Cup final but beaten Sheffield United at Old Trafford and ending the First Division in the final three of the 1920s.

Chelsea has a reputation for bringing infamous players and a large audience, but success has not yet approached them during World War I and II.

Former Arsenal and England striker Ted Drake became a manager in 1952. Drake began to modernize the club both on and off the pitch. He replaced the Chelsea pensioner logo, upgraded the training system and coaching the young teams, and strengthened the depth of the team with the shrewdness of bringing in a number of players from the bottom divisions and amateur leagues to successfully bringing Chelsea to their first championship trophy, the Premier League First Division title 1954-55.

The following season, UEFA held championships between league champions in Europe, the Champions Cup, but disagreement by the authority of the English Football League and the FA made Chelsea withdraw from the championship before it started. Chelsea failed to continue its success and only became the mid-table league fixture. in the 1950s. Drake was fired in 1961 and replaced by Tommy Docherty who also doubles as player-manager positions.

Chelsea returned to Premier League champions 50 years later, in 2005, in the tenure of manager Jose Mourinho (2004 - 2007), which at the time was fully supported by Russian oil billionaire owner Roman Abramovich.

In the same year (2005), Chelsea also won the Carling Cup by beating Liverpool. Next, in 2006, Chelsea again won the Premier League. And in 2007, Chelsea also again managed to win the Carling Cup after beating Arsenal 2-1 and became FA Cup winners after beating Manchester United 1-0 in extra time.
But due to some poor performances at the start of the 2007/2008 competition coupled with incompatibility with the owner, Jose Mourinho eventually resigned from the manager's position, and was subsequently replaced by former national team manager Avram Grant.

At the beginning of Grant's lifetime, many people looked at him in the eye. However, Avram Grant was able to bring Chelsea into a treble runner-up in the Carling Cup before beaten Tottenham Hotspur with a score of 2-1.

Followed by runner-up to English Premier League under Manchester United and runner-up in the Champions League after losing 6-5 on penalties from Manchester United. But the achievement is considered not good enough so that Grant was forced to be fired at the end of the season.

In late January 2009, Avram Grant was replaced by Brazilian Luiz Felipe Scolari. However, Scolari is also not able to provide satisfactory achievement. So at the end of April 2009 suffered the same fate with Grant. The vacant position of the Chelsea manager was then filled by then Russia coach Guus Hiddink until the end of the 2008-09 season. At the end of May, before leaving Chelsea, Guus Hiddink gave sweet memories with Chelsea's fifth FA Cup title.
