    I've got a few mates that lived near the original site of the ground, and were involved with Cray Wanderers in some form or another (Millwall supporters to boot). Where's the new ground going to be Boyne?

    Another couple, desperately trying to show that they weren't going bald, but with hilarious results were Bobby Charlton and Ralph Coates.
  3. A cat in hell's chance of this happening but I'd switch Azpilicueta to left back and play Zappacosta on the right and use Ampadu in the deep lying midfield role. The lad's got tons more pace than Jorginho and Fabregas, has the skill and confidence in his own ability. It's odds on that City will have most of the possession, so I'd dispense with the 'target man' and play with the pace of Loftus -Cheek, Hazard and Pedro as a front three, to do them on the counter. Guardiola won't know what's hit him!
  4. Hazard is the one that makes things happen, the invention in the team. It annoys me that no one else takes the sort of responsibility he does. Kovacic, after a bright start, has gone into his shell. Why? I don't know, because he has the pace and skill to make things happen as well. Overall, I was disappointed with Loftus -Cheek's contribution last night. With his ability, he should have been scaring the sh*t out of their suspect defence, but it didn't happen.

    And Jack Pallance. Looked no different in Shane than he did in City Slickers nearly 40 years later.

    Eider had balance and bundles of skill. A bit more pace and he would have been at the top of the tree.
  7. Sarri wants to play the high press and possession football but hasn't got the personnel to do it. And I'm pleased to see that he is acutely aware of this, judging by his post match comments. Yes, we've got enough to beat mediocre outfits in the League but, if the club is serious about challenging the top teams, we've got to have pace and more pace throughout the team. City, Liverpool and Tottenham have it in abundance. We can't afford the luxury of having sloths like Alonso, Luiz (not only slow but indisciplined), Azpilicueta and Jorginho who are all a waste of space when caught out of position. Rudiger has been immense all season but he played like he'd been on the tiles the night before, while I'm convinced that Kovacic wasn't 100 % fit because his acceleration and quick passing was missing.

    That loss to Sheffield Wednesday at Villa Park was the most disappointed I'd felt as a Chelsea fan. We looked a million dollars in that Inter Milan strip but we were dire on the day. Ossie blamed the heavy pitch but I reckon we thought we'd already won the match, before it even started! Then an ex Blue, Jim McCalliog gets their second goal, bang on the final whistle, to rub salt in the wounds. Crestfallen I was.

    The bottom photo looks like Eddie Mac has been given his marching orders. Who was that against mate?

    Duncan McKenzie, I forgot about him. I can't remember the last time I saw an indirect free kick, inside the penalty area.

    In the stadium itself....moths, bloody big bastards fluttering down on top of our heads, as we were sat underneath one of the floodlights. Outside, we walked into a bar which was like the black hole of Calcutta. You couldn't see the hand in front of your face. I was out of there like a rat up a drainpipe.

    The one in the middle of the three. Could that be The Queen?

    I think Gus was the only Uruguayan player we ever signed.

    I was there for the first game but couldn't see the replay. Skint.

    I always thought Osgood was a tough bugger. He was in his element against Leeds, sticking a boot in here and a knee there, normally in close proximity of Jack Charlton and Norman Hunter.
