  1. Worthy champions. Tuchel outmatched Guardiola again. Spare a thought for Frank though for laying the groundwork for that win. City had 1 shot on target and people are saying they didn't turn up. No mention of their midfield being nullified and the superb play by Reece James, Mount, Kante, and Rudiger who drew their sting. Enjoy the moment lads. See ya next year.
  2. Come on Chelsea, you can win this. City fans are being insufferable thinking all they have to do is show up to get their hands on the big 'un. Take it back to West London and send the bitters home in tears.
  3. I doubt it. Woodward is hated. He's already trying to rehabilitate hos reputation. Jamie Jackson (who else) has already started the process in today's Guardian. Whilst I have no doubt that the Glazers were the prime movers, Woodward was hip-deep in it and had the ESL been successful, he would have been at the front of the queue for a pat on the head. He's a snake all right. Now we're hoping the Glazers decide to sell but knowing them, they will be re-thinking the ESL plan and will come back. Remember the 'Big Picture' proposal from a few months ago? They backed off that only to return with ESL
  4. Woodward needs to go and the Glazers with him. They are a cancer on the game. They have put nothing in, and taken out a lot. Scum like that have no place in football.
  5. Well done lads. I hope the whole things collapses. I just hope another team doesn't step in to fill the gap. I can't imaging the cabal organizing this wouldn't have an alternate or two in case someone backed out.
  6. I recognize Albert Scanlon who played on the left wing for us before and after Munich but you'll have to name the Chelsea player.
  7. Can't place your number 9. I know ours but I can't for the life of me put a name to the face.
  8. I think that was always going to be the case with an inexperienced manager. The pressure to succeed is so great now that at the first whiff of the possibility of missing out on the CL sends the board into fits. There were always bound to be bumps in the road for Frank. I don't know who, if anyone at Chelsea he could turn to for advice and help. At least Ole can call Fergie if he needs to, but Frank was out there on his own (and I stand to be corrected if I'm wrong). He'll learn from this and hopefully will be back in management before long.
  9. Barney Ronay in the Guardian has penned a piece with the provocative title ' Does Frank Lampard genuinely deserve to be fired right now?' Ronay thinks football is full of 'heritage appointments and punts on status. 'This' he thinks, 'is how the game works.' It's pretty painful stuff and written, I suspect, to get peoples' backs up. There's a definite air of condescension about it, especially the odd connection he makes between the 'Golden Generation' and people wanting Lampard sacked. I found it dull reading made up of wishful thinking and speculation. Make of it what you will but from a pers
  10. I remember the 1964-65 season and the run-in. For a long while it was a three-horse race with United. Chelsea, and Leeds. Chelsea dropped off right at the end with a handful of games to go. I was watching an old video of our home game with Liverpool and at the end, as the players walked off, the commentator said now we'll have to wait and see what Leeds and Chelsea have done. I think the Doc always held as much affection for his Chelsea players as he did for his United players.
  11. There are some great comments under the Guardian obituary from old Chelsea and United fans. I met him a few times in the old Bull's Head in Hale Barns where he would go to drink. Players like Lou Macari, Martin Buchan, and Jim Holton would come in and a few City players like Dave Watson, Joe Corrigan, and Mike Summerbee, and they were always happy to have a laugh and a joke with the fans. Even then he would say that he would have won the league with Chelsea if they'd kept Jimmy Greaves, and I've heard other Chelsea fans say something similar. A mate of mine tells a great story of being p
  12. I shed a tear when I heard the news. RIP Tommy Doc. Thanks for the brilliant memories.
  13. The last game of the ill-fated 1957-58 season. A makeshift United side went to Stamford Bridge and lost 1-2. David Cliss scores Chelsea's first. Les Allen got the second and Ernie Taylor, drafted in at the age of 33 from Blackpool, scored for us. Was Les Allen Clive Allen's dad?
