    That blue and white segment cap takes me back. Reminds me of the Reubettes ( Sugar Baby Love....!)

    I don’t think I’ve ever any pics of that game to this day, except maybe in the home programme straight afterwards. Going back to loosing your mates, countless times over the years I’ve gone up with a group of blokes and come home with another- you meet people you know who’ve come by minibus scrounge a lift back or just fancy a change of company etc etc European jaunts you’d not see people for days ( particularly in the 90s when there was still the novelty factor and you’d go for a few days), where people would go on mad benders....

    3 iconic away games in a row. Man City, Pompey, Grimsby. Saw us win the double at Wembley against Portsmouth, but wouldn’t swap the memory for that midweek game all those years back. I was in the side stand where we had half the enclosure and the seats above. Most of Chelsea were behind the goal. Before the game, where our end met the terraced home side, it looked certain as if it was gonna go off, but somehow it didn’t. Lost me mates after the game and got the slow train back on me own- in pre mobile days if you lost your mates you might not see them for the rest of the trip.

    There’s some good names there. Papa George ( always get him mixed up with Boy George!), still regularly plays the Cavern in Raynes Park for free.

    Not sure. Had some great times upstairs over the years- think it varies night by night eg Soul, Jazz, Brazillian, Cuban - mostly DJs sometimes Jam sessions. Theres a good soul/ jazz funk reunion once a month at the Burlington Arm Mayfair.

    I saw Roy Ayers at the Forum earlier this year, and he would fall into the “ too crotchety” bracket now alas. Had a chat with a 93 year old jazz drummer a while back. He was a navigator on a Wellington Bomber in WW2- got shot down and spent 3 years in a POW camp- there were 3 bands in the camp, one of them needed a drummer and the rest in history. He could still perform a decent drum roll till the end. I suspect he was taking Cod Liver Oil Capsules as suppositories- keeps the elbows and wrists nice and lubricated! Ps Marlena Shaw’s now a trifle too old to be honest. We saw her at Ronnie Scott’s. A mate of mind who was pissed, thought he was entering the karzi and basically ended up backstage, catching her without her wig on. She didn’t exactly chase him out with a broom but it wasn’t far off!

    He was superb. Really needs to work on his personality and stagecraft though!

    Gutted I never went. I’d just started work and had to cover the Saturday. I had a loony cousin who told me he going down with his mates and kipping on the beach. Prior to this he’d shown zero interest in football, so remember thinking if the likes of him are going there’s bound to be plenty of action. Missed out on Leeds at home through work too, but did make the next home v Barnsley. People get the two mixed up; mass celebrations and pitch invasion.

    West Ham thought of us as ground and train wreckers. When I started Secondary School in 78, I palled up with 2 twins, one was West Ham and the other Chelsea, and both were allowed to go to away games up and down the country at 12 or 13, and they did this all the time till we left school in 82. -no chance with my parents. We were both in the 2nd Division, and I’d get first hand reports- from what I remember the away gates when Chelsea and West Ham visited were pretty similar- maybe we were both taking on average 3000 to Northern Grounds. Chelsea did take more home ends than the Pikies back then according to them.

    First time I’ve set eyes on this thread. I’m seeing Geno Washington and the Ram Jam Band at the Half Moon in Putney tonight. Hes gotta be marching on a bit. The length of the set is probably linked to the endurance of his bladder!

    Was also in the Shed that night- had migrated to Gate 13 or the West Stand Seats a couple of years previous and only really stood if it was a sell out or was skint. ( Didn’t take to the benches much- bit uncomfortable for my liking, especially after they became concrete ) An older bloke that came with us that night was so appalled he never went to the Bridge again for years. Next morning it was all over the front and back pages. The Luton v Millwall riot wasn’t long after that. Might have been a load a bollox but remember reading in one of papers some Millwall fan saying how they were a bit jealous of the publicity Chelsea got after the Sunderland game and thought they’d make some headlines themselves. I must admit if it did kick off the next morning I’d be checking out all the papers. Edit: the next day on Robbie Vincent’s talk show it was like a hooligans convention ( West Ham and Chelsea fans after the Parsons Green incident.) ” They got what they deserved turning up on our manor with blades” ” We were trying to get off the train and have it wiv em” etc etc

    Was the dog track grass? Before my time but presumed it was cinder.
