  1. RIP Ray Wilkins

    Yep can still remember going through the turnstiles and up the steps into the mighty shed to see Ray lead out that young Chelsea side so full of promise that got promoted out of the old second division. I can still hear the chants of Eddie Macredie's Blue and white army or Wilkins Wilkins born is the King of Stamford Bridge. Then there were the girls dotted around the ground with their I'm a Butch Wilkins Babe scarfs wrapped around their necks. Thank you Ray for giving me so many great memories of my teenage years. you were taken too young-Rest in Peace.

    Excellent post
  3. Congrats to Lincoln City for getting to the final, but our young lads were immense and showed a lot more heart, spirit and desire than the seniors last night. Some great individual performances but most of all Ampadu was amazing. He should be starting in the first team from now on. Who cares if he is only 17, I seem to remember a certain young player when I first started going to watch Chelsea back in the 70's who became captain of the first team at 18.
  4. i was a bit more towards the middle and always stood on the ledge above the gangway that ran along the length of the Shed about half way up. I always made sure the crush barrier was behind my back after having been squashed against one my first time in the shed following a knees up mother brown surge. After that when the surge came down I would just step off onto the gangway and survive intact lol

    and their mob was generally older than our lads at the time
  6. Very much agree with you on the development of women's football and am pleased that your niece is doing so well at rugby here in sunny Sussex. I remember the silk version of the scarf which was popular at the Bridge when I was a teenager in the Shed. My friend knitted the one i am wearing in my picture as I lost my original one years ago and had not been able to locate another commercially. Having said that I was at the Newcastle game yesterday and walking out of the East Stand afterwards there was another Chelsea fan wearing one. We both had a good laugh and a bit of a reminisce about it lol.
  7. My 10 year old daughter who is a great defensive midfield player would love to one day play for Chelsea ladies. She plays for Hollingbury Hawks here in Brighton at the moment but one day maybe her dream will come true. So good to see just how much ladies football has developed in recent years.
  8. A rare treat for me as I live within walking distance of the Amex

    Morning kick off that one. Had to hitch hike up from Chichester that day as no trains were running from the south-coast. Got to Victoria as the Chelsea fans were returning from the match to be told we got hammered in the game but we took the north bank. Next day we were home to West Ham and I got decked when they came up the stairs and poured into the Shed early on

    Yes this was the season we played Liverpool 4 times winning both at home and losing both the away games. Was in the Shed for both at the Bridge and at the league game away when the bus in front of ours got a brick through the window as we were ferried to the ground from the Station. I remember the press being full of headlines stating that Liverpool were coming to London for revenge when we played them at home in the league follow their 4-2 defeat in the fa cup, but of course we smashed them again. Great days that stay with us all our lives
