Dean Mears

Regular buyers of cfcuk will be familiar with the work of Dean Mears who’s written for the Chelsea fanzine since 2013. Reading Clayton Beerman’s book Palpable Discord sparked an idea that turned into his first published book, Cult Fiction, a first-hand account of Maurizio Sarri’s 11-month sojourn as Blues manager.

Dean has been a season ticket holder since 2001 and has grown up watching the most successful era in Chelsea’s history alongside his Dad, a regular at Stamford Bridge since the 1970’s.
