Scott Minto: How House Music helped me rock Wembley and how I got the Blues at Chelsea

Last season, our Socios at patreon.com/grahamhunter got an exclusive interview with Scott Minto. For the first time, here’s the full episode.

Part two focuses on Scott’s time as an accomplished full-back at Chelsea, where Glenn Hoddle brought a new era of professionalism to the club – not least ending biscuits as the staple of the pre-training diet.

While at Stamford Bridge, Scott operated alongside incredible talents such as Dan Petrescu and Roberto Di Matteo. However, few surpassed Hoddle’s replacement, player-coach Ruud Gullit, in terms of sheer all-round ability.

Scott describes Chelsea’s 1997 FA Cup winning run, and how applying sports psychology – before it was fashionable – and listening to a house music track prepared him for the Wembley final, which proved to be his last game for the club. He also explains how being substituted too often disillusioned him with life at the Blues.
