This will be a review on the Official Chelsea FC magazine. I have a membership at the club so get the magazine as part of this every month. If you are to purchase the magazine in the shop though it costs £3.25.
The magazine itself is filled with various content on the club including interviews with players and other people involved with the club including celebrities and fans. As is usual with most magazines you will have some of the main features of the current issue on the front cover and then inside you find full contents. On the front cover usually is a current player or manager and they are usually the main focus of the issue with an in depth interview with them. Last month was Didier Drogba and this month is manager Carlo Ancelotti. In the picture shown in the product description is French winger Florent Malouda.
There is also some focus on the youth team with an interview usually with a player from the youth ranks.There are also features on past players and a little bit on tactics from a specific game. There is also a section where they get together a few fans .There is also a top ten feature currently for different things such as top 10 own goals involving Chelsea. There is a training ground section which I like which sometimes has a few training drills/ exercises that the players use for warm ups etc and also sometimes food or a meal the players eat when training. There is also a community feature and a letters section as well as a few other things.
It seems the magazine has more recently got more fan involvement with things being sent in by fans and also with them being featured in the magazine also. Overall it is a very good magazine but I would probably not pay for it if I didn't get it already as the price is a bit on the high side. I would though give it 5/5 stars for the design and content it has which is generally very good but probably only if you like Chelsea.
