Being born in 1969 Ossie, Charlie and the rest were before my time, but remember as I started getting into football in the mid to late 70's my parents and grandparents use to bang on about them all the time and the 60's early 70's era, I started to believe they were super human! The Chelsea I started to know were sh*te, listening on the radio on Saturday afternoon while my dad was doing up our house I would here a groan or quiet swear word from him as we conceded at Rotherham or Orient etc, my time would come though, he had Ossie and co in his teenage years, but 1983 soon arrived and Dixon, Nevin, Speedie and co were my teenage years!

A couple of Chelsea Legends there.

Must admit to watching as much vintage Chelsea footage from that era on youtube as I can.

Notice the letters around the bottom where the copper is standing? I seem to remember they used to put the half time scores of the other games that were being played. Each letter corresponded to a game in the official programme. Gawd knows where this game is though.

I'm guessing Highbury....Just by the shadow of the roof..might be wrong tho.

Fantastic post, sorry to hear of your health issues mate, hope all works out well for you, you guys who went during the 60's and 70's and 80's have my total respect, I only started going in the 80's but sh*t grounds, sh*t transport, dodgy home fans and even dodgier coppers at times,my two lads in their early 20's don't know their born when going to games now. They only have to worry about getting their wet when walking to the ground

I was born in 67 and can relate to your post. Listening to Sport on 2 on a Saturday afternoon or Wednesday evening and hearing we were losing at Rotherham or drawing at Orient. The Monday mornings at school after we had beaten Liverpool in the FA Cup in 78 and 82 were brilliant though!

Then came the transformation in 1983/84 . Ironically my last year at secondary school. Chelsea were back and I could walk tall on a Monday morning again.

I had the privilege of being at the game when Jimmy burst on to the scene. His pace was electric compared to the other Charles 'Charlie' Charles's on the pitch. The opposition must have thought he was from outer space....as we all did!

Very sorry to hear of your health difficulties Mike. Tremendous post. You mentioned Millwall as a footnote. Was if you that got in serious lumber when we played them at ours 83? Just remembered a post from years back that rung a bell?

Kind Regards

I cant remember so well but thought it was a coupla years later...Had my neck slashed with a Stanley.....Ken bates read about it and sent my wife and myself directors box tickets v Ipswich....Met the great Chelsea pensioners and will never forget one of em nicknamed TINY.......He WILL be mocking spuds from upstairs now...Thanks

Total respect for you Mike....your memories are fantastic ....same era as mine.......and from personal close up experience.....I totally agree with your hatred of the spuds y army.

My memories are somewhat adled at the best of times...When ive been to so many matches I can relate a story and have mixed it up with another time and place....The best thing I know is I believe I attended in the best the shed and northstand era possible....My soul is Blue my blood is blue....I feel happy for the club now with all the general success but given a choice as if I were a 12 year old now,,,Back to the 60s 70s and 80s it would be for me...Selfish sh*t aint I....BUT that's when it was great fun like a lot wont know...Thanks
