    Kenny Swain is one, if you count Birkenhead as Scouse. Scott Minto as well?

    Great news. We now just need to get Thibaut and Eden sorted.
  7. Welcome Ross Barkley

    Good quick read on Barkley, QandA with an Everton fan. https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2018/1/7/16859542/ross-barkley-chelsea-scouting-report-everton

    Colin Pates, John Bumstead and Doug Rougvie are pictured with then club photographer Hugh Hastings on the team bus in the wake of our dramatic Full Members' Cup win over Manchester City in 1986. First Lord of the Admiralty and Chelsea Vice President AV Alexander greeting Dynamo players. Shown above is a photo from the Chelsea archives of our head groundsman for many, many years George Anstiss, and his pet dog looking at the playing surface in the goalmouth at the north end of the ground. The old north terrace and a rudimentary electronic scoreboard can be seen behind the goal. George’s son John is still on the groundstaff today. The Blues produced a memorable display away at Southampton recently, running out 2-0 winners at the end of last month, and when we visited their old stadium, The Dell, in 1981, it was a game one player in particular will always remember. Young goalkeeper Steve Francis (pictured behind Colin Pates), who was just 17 at the time, started in goal for us that night, making his Chelsea bow in the first leg of a Milk Cup tie. The game finished 1-1, with Mike Fillery's second-half equaliser cancelling out Kevin Keegan's opener for the Saints. In the second leg, Fillery also scored a decisive goal to secure our progression after extra-time. In the image above, which was taken in 1924, Andy Wilson is pictured polishing the floor in his new home, although he doesn't appear to have dressed accordingly, with his outfit more suited to a glamorous awards ceremony. A skillful and intelligent player, Wilson spent nine seasons at Stamford Bridge, scoring 61 goals in 253 appearances for the club. Legendary Spain keeper Ricardo Zamora trained at Stamford Bridge on 7 December 1931 and was clearly of interest to the media of the day. England beat Spain 7-1 at Highbury two days later. The Spanish equivalent of the ‘Golden Glove’ trophy is named after Zamora, who enjoyed a wonderful career playing for Barcelona and Spain and later managing his country. A Chelsea Pensioner chats with left-back Joey Jones in a bar at Stamford Bridge shortly after promotion back to the First Division is secured in 1984. Great picture of Bobby Tambling from 1967.

    12 March 1938: CHELSEA's new signing from Luton Town, JOE PAYNE, chases the ball into the Bolton goal area, as CHELSEA play Bolton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge. JOE PAYNE is the holder of the Football League individual scoring record for one match, with ten goals for Luton against Bristol Rovers Barnet captain Lester Finch shakes hands with Bishop Auckland's young mascot before the FA Amateur Cup Final at STAMFORD BRIDGE. Hughie Gallacher (goalkeeper) and Alex Jackson. 1st February 1931. Wee Hughie is a Chelsea star. Gallacher's move to Stamford Bridge was a highly contentious transfer; both player and fans were against it and when he returned to Gallowgate with his new club support for the Scot was unprecedented. Pictured at Stamford Bridge with Alec Jackson (left) in training. Chelsea V Dynamo. Chelsea goalkeeper Ben-Howard Baker makes a save, 9 Sept 1922 Dirty Leeds, Wembley. You're correct, it was Gallacher. At Highbury for a league match, funnily enough. Normally those royal introduction type photos relate to cup finals.

    Whatever your thoughts on this transfer, we can all agree that the club-fed headlines going from 'Tottenham confident of signing Ross Barkley for £25m' to 'Tottenham end interest in Ross Barkley' in the space of about a week is hilarious.

    Brave of him to take the #8, heavy burden to take up Oscar's old shirt number... /sarc

    Marina clearly enjoying filling the Emenalo role.
