It may have been a most unusual and dramatic Thursday with Transfer Deadline Day and all its associated shenanigans in full bloom, but now it’s Friday and Friday, like clockwork, means Chelsea: Unseen. It’s nice to know that even in these turbulent times towards the end of the multi-month rat-race that is the transfer window, we can rely on a solid constant like the new episode of Chelsea: Unseen dropping as normal on Friday.
Of course, a big part of this week’s episode is the arrival of the two transfer deadline day signings, Davide Zappacosta and Danny Drinkwater, both of whom got to Cobham for their medicals and official signings and announcements after the sun went down. It must be a pretty strange feeling to try to stand there and smile while holding up the shirt and making sure the sponsors’ logos are showing (including the sleeve sponsor!). And then you have to do your interviews and all that additional fluff, too.
Beyond those scenes, we get a brief glimpse of first-team training from last weekend, as well as a few shots of the youth teams passing around nicely and the Chelsea Ladies gearing up for the start of their season as well.
