  1. There is a nice full page article titled "Cool Cat" in the latest edition of When Saturday Comes. I can put an image of it up if that is allowed. By Mike Ticher
  2. And now someone has added this.. I think we were ahead of the curve with social distancing. Also remember the skin heads on the pitch playing football before the Chelsea game. Everyone scared to clear them off
  3. This is out of a Hereford book. 6th November 1976. 2-2 Bonetti, Locke, G Wilkins, Stanley, Wicks, Hay, Britton, R Wilkins, Finnieston, Lewington, Swain, 12528 (2nd biggest gate of season after Wolves) - Finnieston scored 28 and 41st minute. Hereford had Tommy Hughes (formely Bonetti understudy), Dixie McNeill (lower league goal machine) and (ex Saint) Terry Paine. The book gives 2 lines for each game... Chelsea are firm favourites with seven wins in their last eight games but Hereford battle and teh Pensioners are happy to settle for a draw. Terry Paine returns after one of the shortest retirements on record and new signing from Wolves, Derek Jefferson, gives a solid display at the back. The SB game was January 1st 1977. 5-1 Swain, Stanley, Wilkins 2, Finnieston. Phillips, Locke, Harris, Stanley (Sparrow), Droy, Hay, Britton, R Wilkins, Finnieston, Lewington, Swain 27720. Sillett's troubles deepen as a training injury leaves McNeill on crutches and without him Chelsea give Hereford a first-half roasting. The pick of the goals is a brilliant 25-yard lob over Charlton's head by Ray Wilkins. Terry Paine celebrates his recent MBE award with a consolation goal.
  4. I should have tidied it up a bit, but you lot deserve better than that. Worryingly, he is one of the brighter ones.
  5. A little present for you from the Hereford FC forum. A "Your first Hereford game" thread has been started to kill a bit of time... V Chelsea 76-77 I think.i used to be a big chelsea fan.i was 13.to see the likes of ray Wilkins and Steve finneston live was amazing.one thing I remember was genuinely eating for an action replay after the goals.2.2 it finished.i went regular after that.our dad who took me never went again.the Chelsea fans fighting the police put him off.you will never get this nonsense in rugby he said.i was taken in by the atmosphere.great times.
  6. This must surely have been on here. You will know if you have seen it before from the music...
  7. Tommy Hughes is Scottish, I knew that anyway, but just checked him out and he was born in Dalmuir. I didn't realise but he played 11 times for CFC (according to wiki). Very good keeper at our level.
  8. Hello Chelsea. Hereford fan here if I am being honest, but I have been to see Chelsea about 30 times over the last 5 seasons with my lad who plucked Chelsea out of the air somewhere in his childhood. I always feel a bit of a tourist at the games, but have been to hundreds of really crap football matches so I reckon that gives me a bit of a free pass. I also came to SB in the mid 80s to see you lose 1-0 at home to Charlton. Anyway I find this site a bit addictive. When I first took my lad I thought I had better tune in to the bit of Chelsea I would have been part of behind the modern fan experience Chelsea glitz. And now 4 years later I have a nose on this thread at least weekly. Fan porn. Speaking of which, I am not sure if you have seen this page. Knock yourself out if you haven't. The SB page isn't great but there are some pearlers elsewhere. Grounds that you have had many a cultural visit to. https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/3-ian-thompson Finally, he never played for you as he was understudy to the Cat circa 1970, but Tommy Hughes lives in the next street to me. He put in about 300 games in goal for Hereford in the late seventies. Obviously settled in Hereford. Became a carpet fitter. Just like David Beckham when he retired. He did a fan Q&A once and pointed out that his missus was a receptionist whilst he was a blue and earned more money! He got to be in and around the team at that time though. Not the worst start to adult life. My lad is properly gone on CFC and will no doubt fully drag me in eventually. I have wasted enough love already. Cheers
