  1. I think our best hope is that those who disappointed last season, mainly Bakayoko and Morata, will have had a full pre season under their belts and a better understanding of what playing in the Prem is about. That and a couple of decent signings should see us back in the top 4 ok. Copy and paste from every season in recent memory.....please let's see a couple of the kids given a decent go.

    We've lost another true blue..

    There's an old St Helier Arms regular at 3:42, the one who hasn't got long hair. Not a Chelsea, or even a football, bod, but a good old mate from back in the day at Gaynesford High School and the Arms.

    This was the first home game of my first full season going. Missed it cos I was on holiday in a sh*tty caravan in sh*tty Camber Sands, sulked all week as only a 12 year old can.

    I'm guessing it's the South East Counties cup, Ken Shellito is in the pic and he was manager of the youth side who played all their games at the old Mitcham training ground, probably around 74 as there are a lot of Eddie McReadie's 77 promotion winning team there, Wilkins, Bason, Finnieston, Wicks, Sparrow, Lewington and Walker. Two from my part of the world as well, Teddy Maybank from Mitcham (front row furthest right), and Les Briley from St Helier who went on to have a long career at Millwall, (front row, red vest) I went out with his sister for a while.

    If memory serves this game was something like an 11 kick off. Me and my mate set off at 6, long walk to Morden for the tube, no busses that early on NYD, and Chelsea scoring the first goal of the 80s.

    I grew up on Peterborough Road, don't get down much now, but was back a month or so ago and made a point of nipping into the Circle Cafe on Sunday morning for a bacon roll and a cuppa, and glad to see that it's still a shrine to all things Chelsea.

    Just read this report from last week's game at Carshalton.

    That's the division that the Robins are back in next season, you'd never feel out of place wearing a Chelsea badge at the Memorial Ground mate. If I still lived where I grew up in Carshalton then Tooting's stadium would be my nearest. I was in the last road of Carshalton, bordered by Morden and Mitcham and could be down at the old training ground in under 5 minutes, ruined my education that.

    First ground I ever went to, do you know that T&M's ground is where our old training ground used to be?

    Found out yesterday that my old hometown team got promoted last week, and decided to take in a non-league game as some sort of celebration. Closest to me was Dunstable Town v St Ives, Evostik Premier no less. Drab and dreary 0-0, not the best pint and burger I've ever had at a ground, but decent locals, and to round it off Dunstable is where Kerry was discovered, so more of a pilgrimage really. Carshalton Athletic next Saturday hopefully, for the promotion party.

    Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    And every chant is totally tuneless now, is it a macho thing? " Ha! you sung an actual note......GAY!"

    Your unpopular opinion about Chelsea

    I haven't worn one for the last 2 or 3 years, still drop a fiver in the RBL tin as soon as they start collecting, but the nastiness surrounding those who have set themselves up over the last few years as the moral police of Remembrance Day have put me off completely. I still admire the RBL greatly for their work and fundraising, hence my continued financial support, but I'll not be told that I have to wear anything, by anybody.

    Club's investment into the squad

    On the bright side, I've lived through the worst years in the club's history, 78-83, and the greatest, Ruud-now. On the whole, mustn't grumble.

    I opened the picture so I could enlarge it to see if I could pick any of the opposition players out and it's captioned "nov-1968-mancity-osgood-goal". I'm also pretty sure that the two City players closest to the camera are Glyn Pardoe on the left and Tommy Booth. You're right about Jeff Astle, missed a sitter against arguably the best team ever in a match we only lost 1-0
