    Any one born south of the Highland line is a Sassenach by the true definition of the word so that includes Lowlanders lol

    Chelsea v Derby County August 1983.

    Had only been living in Brighton a few years after moving from Chi when that game took place. The stand you are referring to was known the West Stand extension which is where I was sitting with an ex girlfriend. Yes you are right the Brighton fans exited the North stand pretty quick when our lot started to flow in from the corner enclosure.

    Yes mostly agree with you. When I was growing up in Chi and traveling up to the Bridge there were loads of Chelsea from Sussex, Surrey and south London. I find though that with Brighton (where I have now lived for many years) that their fan base in Sussex sees to mostly end along the coast west of Worthing and that part of Sussex is mostly Pompey country. Certainly growing up in Chichester most of the local support was Portsmouth with very little for Brighton.

    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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. A rare treat for me as I live within walking distance of the Amex
