    Chelsea v Derby County August 1983.

    That was one hell of a day out. Chelsea here, Chelsea there...
  2. Well, MOTD replay showed it did come off the defenders studs, so it’s a corner. Pep obviously has amazing eyesight to see it didn’t from 50 yards away
  3. Losing to Spurs, when I’m heading to LHR tomorrow morning, and my cab driver is a Spud. Going to get a whole hour of how great they are. ”Champions of Europe, you’ll never win that”

    Chance Encounters as a Chelsea Fan

    A few from me: Watching The Munich Final in a bar in Chicago in 2012. Bloke sits next to me at the bar and turns out big Chelsea fan, born two roads away from me in Fulham. Had both been at same numerous away games in early 80s. Both in US on business and randomly picked the same bar to watch the match in. Had a great night. Really spanked both our corporate cards Good evening with Ray Lewington when someone convinced him to present the player of the year awards for the Sunday league team I played for in early 80s. Norman Medhurst regularly round our house, as Harry was a friend of my dad’s family from the Worlds end. Met Alan Hudson a few times as his brother had a window cleaning business doing shops on the Kings rd in the 70s & 80s Regularly in the Duke of Cumberland in New Kings rd after home matches in 80s, Half the team in there having a beer and a fag. Got in the same way as us, through the beer garden, back in days before pubs opened at 6. Walked past JT playing golf on Wimbledon common mid week a few years back and sat in front of Super Frank on a flight to the US about 5 years ago. Didn’t realise he was there until getting off the plane and thought it a bit pushy to ask for his autograph for my son, so just said Hi.

    Apparently Peter Odemwingie turned up at Stamford Bridge in his Range Rover earlier, fancied being a manager

    I’d rather they just stick with Conte and give him the players he wants. At this rate the World Cup will be on and all signings stall for a month, then you either pay more for players you want if they had a good World Cup, or get more makeweights like Berkeley and Drinkwater...

    Random Rumours

    Zidane to Chelsea for 2 years and then off to France for next World Cup?
  9. I was in an Irish bar in Chicago, having landed an hour before from UK, dropped bag at hotel and straight into bar next door. Full of yanks except for me sitting at the bar and another random English chap / Chels fan (also born in Fulham) sat next to me. The two is us stood there watching the shoot out and at the end went mental. The whole pub joined in and shots and beers started arriving in front of us, loads were sending drinks over, and for next hour were coming up to both of us saying they’d had a great time watching us during the game. Apparently we were up and down all the time, slapping each other, hugging, swearing, using weird language, etc. Had a US work colleague join me at half time and he couldn’t believe the emotions. Left the bar late that night, totally pi55ed (on a business trip and had stuck company Amex behind the bar on arrival, bill was massive but it went through on exes as client entertaining) and knackered having been up at 6am to fly from UK. Can’t even remember the other guys name, just a fellow Chelsea lad who like me did a lot of games in the early 80s. Good on ya fella!
  10. Although that head butt in the WC final vs Italy blots the copybook just a tad?
  11. Definitely up there with Drogbas’ header in 2012..
  12. Not like when Suarez bit Ivan, clearly Ivan’s fault for putting his neck in the way....
  13. Scousers, normal behaviour.
  14. Same here, never got on with Nike trainers, but love Adidas. Had some Ivan Lendel back in the 80s favourite shoe ever, apart from blue gazelles, wore them everywhere in the second division... photos stolen from internet
