    Remember that as I was only 15 at the time I bunked  the train from Southampton 1976 quarter final, Jimmy hill spoke about it kicking off that night on match of the day,as irony would have it saints won the same day and went on to win the cup that year.I was gutted Monday at school and had the piss  taken out of me & had a few scraps for a while

    Although living down on the South coast at the age of 6 got taken to see the blues play Southampton Chelsea won and that was it for me,roll on 3 years later my Chelsea were in the f.a cup final and I had a Chelsea kit that was thrown together somehow, my gran had even sown white stripes on some blue shorts for me,I thought I was the dogs bollocks .
    In school leading up up to the big day(days) I was the leader of my gang in the playground charging around singing were gonna win the cup then eventually ee  ie  addioe   we won the cup those were the days!
    50 years later I still feel like running around singing Chelsea songs especially  when i,ve  had a few, but cos I still live the same way most people don't get  it but I let  them know anyway.
    So thanks to 1970 fa  cup I have some great memories

    tottonblue reacted to Davey Baby in Eden Hazard   
    To me it's perfectly simple, and I never bought into the criticism of Hazard.
     
    Jose ran him into the ground when the guy needed a rest, when he wasn't tip-top physically Jose played him and played him and played him and demanded the same as he does with all his wide players, that they run backwards almost as much as forwards, or even more.
     
    The more he played the more his body suffered the more he put in poor performances the more he lost confidence the more Jose didn't have a clue how to manage him and just kept on running him into the ground, demanding even more effort.
     
    A player knows his body better than anyone, and a player like Hazard, who runs at players and takes them on, needs to feel comfortable physically more than anyone, he needs to have that confidence to skip past players.
     
    There was the game at Leicester, Jose's final game, where Jose wanted Hazard to carry on, he looked disgusted on the touchline, as if the fault lay with Hazard, as if Hazard had betrayed him, this was a player that had played and played and played. Jose wouldn't take him off so Hazard forced the issue, and quite rightly in my opinion. He was carrying god knows how many knocks and he couldn't carry on, and he had tried, he had tried throughout the whole season.
     
    Guus, a calmer and more experienced head, gave Hazard six weeks off. Look what happened, he came back a different player, scored a brilliant goal at Anfield and came on for the second-half against Tottenham with us trailing 2-0. The rest as they say is history.
     
    People said he should have done it earlier in the season and saved Jose. I had every sympathy for Hazard and none for Jose. A player needs understanding, and I'm afraid Jose showed none whatsoever.
