    Have often found that with Palace fans, they get ahead of themselves quite easily. They have never been a bigger club than us even if our team was worse than theirs for 3 or 4 seasons.
  2. He was, in fact I can´t remember any opposition player having the guts to try and wind him up.

    Unfortunately he wasnt like that often enough. Same with Fillery who was also very good in the Newcastle game.

    I started watching iin 75 so missed those games. The only thrashing I can think of was a 6-2 during the Vialli years and a 4 1 in one of the title seasons under Mourinho. But even with those they either scored first or equalised so it felt like a harder game.

    Funny it reminded me a bit of our game against them this season. We were clearly the better team but for variuos reasons the scoreline didnt reflect that. Funny club for us Palace we very rarely give them a right old thrashing, they tend to raise their game a bit against Chelsea. Maybe because their fans are quite up for it where as we cant really get worked up about them.

    Thats how we got in wasnt it? I remember first trying to get in their end but me and your brother got picked out as we ''looked too much like Londoners'' ha ha then we walked round to the away end just as a group of Chelsea tried steaming through the old bill to get in. The old bill went after them leaving us to sneak in through the turnstiles. was rammed in there remember ''G'' perched a few feet up the floodlight so he could see. Happy Days :-)

    It was a poor turnout for us probably not even 2000, not the best performance either in that red and white kit we wore at Sheff Weds in the league cup semi. we were sh*t that night too.

    Thats right I was at that Arsenal game (probably suspended from playing again) we were in the seats just to the right of the North Bank where there was also a group of Chelsea. Used to love going to Highbury. Do you remember Coventry away where it was just the two of us that decided to go last minute on the train, 0-1 defeat Micky Ginn scored.

    Attendances - the good, the bad and the ugly

    Interesting point regarding the midweek games and people moving out to the suburbs and further. I used to come in from Orpington, Bromley and later Beckenham/Elmers End (some of that time with Strider6003) and remember the crowds being up and down during the late 80s early 90s. Some of that though was the sh*t long ball stuff of the early 90s which may not have been the really dire stuff of the early 80s but close to it. The other thing was how expensive Chelsea was to watch, Bates was constantly criticised for that by fans groups including the Chelsea Independent fanzine. The membership card thing drove many of the old school support away as Im sure did CCTV etc and the OTT prices to watch crap or inconsistent teams. From a personal point of view midweek games often suited me given that I mostly played at weekends and only caught the occasional game on saturdays unless i was suspended (at least once a season) or a game got postponed. By the 2000s the ground was full and I was travelling for work so it became even less but sometimes i also benefitted as Id be working close to an away game. Semi final V United in 2005 being one example.

    Totally agree. He had a great eye for goal (read somewhere he started as a striker) and pretty good vision but also rolled his sleeves up and worked for the team. I know some people mention him kissing his badge in the league cup semi for the Y@ds but im didnt see that and am not convinced it happened. I think he just over celebrated which was aimed at Ranieri who had sold him against his wishes. Hes always positive about us when he is asked.

    I was at this one in the MHL. Was a big fan of Poyet at the time and remember saying to my mates hes back from injury bet he scores, of course he got the equaliser which seemed to drag the team back into it.

    That game just captures our great club in a nutshell doesnt it? Brilliance, mediocrity, triumph, disaster anythings possible with Chelsea. Cant claim I was there, I watched it on Sportsnight without knowing the score. Funny watching it back two or three things struck me, Hillsborough was a proper old school Northern ground, I miss it be nice if they come back up. The crowd seems so much more passionate, I counted two streamers chucked on the pitch one at a Chelsea player early on, Im guessing that is a life ban these days? Rougvie was always a disaster waiting to happen all passion no brain, but actually the problem started with my Chelsea hero at the time Pat Nevin trying to take o two players on the touchline and losing it. Funny thing in my selective memory he never used to lose the ball :-)

    Chelsea v Middlesbioro 1988

    I remember that. I used to call it the witch hunt.
