  1. Can't believe it's been a year already. Talk Sport had some very nice tributes to him this morning, including a chat with his brother, Dean. I still half expect to see him in the Sky Studio, or hear his voice on the radio - always had an opinion and insight worth listening to.
  2. Can't believe that it's a year ago since Ray Wilkins sadly passed away - here's a few memories of his younger days at Chelsea.
  3. Times were so hard in the 1970's - Steve Finnieston and John Sparrow had to share a training top!
  4. Indeed it was - brought back many memories! Somebody else previously posted this photo of Cath at one of the Chelsea Disco nights. I believe it was shortly after Ray Wilkin's move to Man Utd, and he had been part of their team playing in the 5 a-side Masters at Wembley - hence the presence of the other reds in the pic.
  5. Clive Walker + 2 other players at the hairdressers - early 1980's I believe.
  6. Well spotted - it's the Michael Jackson album "Ben" (1972) I think the record player unit was called a radiogram (radio and gramophone combined). The curtains looks like some my mum had from M&S, and the car looks like a Ford Escort. Was trying to figure out what was written on his T-shirt - too much time on my hands!
  7. Graham Wilkins - not sure if he was as awful as some say, or partly suffered the burden of being Butch's brother, poor bloke didn't even have a decent nickname! Brian Mears mentions in his autobiography that Graham had to have a police escort from the ground after scoring a late own goal v West Ham.
  8. I think you're right about Dario. The guy standing on the right is bugging me - I'm sure that I recognise him, possibly John Sparrow?
  9. Ken Shelitto and Chelsea Youth Team. Can anybody name all the players? I've only managed to recognise 5 so far.
  10. I read The Working Man's Ballet a few months ago. I didn't realise that he'd started having injury problems so early in his career, on the other hand, he often didn't seem to do a lot to help his own cause. He seemed to have resentment and jealousy towards the youngsters who "made it" after him, and the club in general. The documentary could certainly be interesting, but I wonder if it will be too focused on Hudson's point of view, rather than a balanced picture.
  11. Very interesting. Nobody reading Eddie's quotes could have imagined that he would gone before the next season started.
  12. Peter Bonetti 1970 Eddie Mac - probably last game of the season v Hull? Celebrating promotion in the Directors' Box at Wolves
  13. Ha ha - was a bit odd to get them to take their shirts off for a photo with their Mum. I guess the 1970's were a bit strange!
  14. Butch flaunting his Man Utd mug in gratuitous topless pic! Ray, Graham and Mum - 1975 Steven, Ray and Graham Wilkins 1975
