In through double doors. Long wooden bar top old shelves behind with crisps toffee popcorn and wagon wheels!! Tea and Bovril. In answer to your memory “just a big featureless space!”

Cheers mate- your description jogged a few grey cells back. 

East Upper bar at halftime, was standing next to Sam aka Lovejoy- he was having a torrid time with the bar staff- Pinky and Perky he named em- anyway the barman hands him 2 pints which were poured earlier. 

Sam " freshly poured please. For all I know  you've been bathing your plonker in them!

Yes mate that's the article, cheers, funny really, remember being there in shed that day, and thinking it was no where near as bad trouble wise as Sunderland in Milk cup in 85, maybe a night game or being a bit younger made it feel worse. 30 years though, bloody hell!!

Was also in the Shed. Like you, I didn't think that the trouble was as bad as during the game against Sunderland. That was a night!

(19th September 1964) Match Of The Day - Chelsea v Leeds United  

Never seen this match footage before.

We won 2-0 ! Sorry to spoil the result for anyone !!

I see Eddie Mac and Chopper warming up for tastier encounters to come, with a couple of 'meaty' tackles. You could see the animosity between Harris and Bremner festering even then. Astonishing to see that there were no substitutes in evidence, with Leeds down to nine men at one point. I did chuckle when Kenneth Wolstenholme said that George Graham's fantastic volley that hit the bar "deserved the Oscar for this game!"

They , substitutes, weren't introduced in English football until the following 1965/66 season.

Had to check to be fair.

I noticed that there wasn't one camera shot of the managers in their dug outs. No substitutes then, so there was little for them to do but look on like the rest of us.

Great stuff. The " old West Stand" wasn't built until 65, so the camera position must have been or that huge side of terracing.

Thought that might have been a broken leg when Johnny Giles got stretchered off, but knee ligaments according to Wikopedia.
