  1. Lucky no one was killed at the station afterwards , the crush in the station was really unbearable. Apart from the trouble and fires on the terraces the gypsy site was attacked and burger van was overturned as it tried to drive off with the occupants inside it, fortunately no one was crushed by the van.

  7. Chelsea/Celtic half/ half ski hats were also on sale roughly 1973 to 1975, same time as tartan scarfs. Never had a hat but still got my tartan scarf with a round original lion crest sew on badge.
  8. Are you Fulham old bill ?, long time since I have seen that enquiry 🙌
  9. The non mystery Chelsea gorilla who climbed the O's floodlight pylon 42 years ago, later seen strolling along Leyton High Road, how time flys seems like yesterday- https://www.pinterest.co.uk/pin/464081936572893678/?autologin=true
  10. 1976-77 Season Blackpool V Chelsea Scots week. Blackpools large home end packed and split in 2 by a large metal fence. Both sides Blackpool and Chelsea had an extremely large contingent of highly inebriated Scottish Holiday makers enjoying playing throw the glass empties over the dividing fence, lots were watching the game covering their heads with their hands. I was approached by one individual who asked me which player was David Hay, he was so inebriated he could still not make out David by covering one eye.
  11. Stoke Fan's Incredible research identifies 'Arrogant' Chelsea players from 45-Year old Photograph https://www.stokesentinel.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/stoke-city-chelsea-derek-richardson-1254497 Interesting article and photos including Young Derek in goal

We walked up past the main entrance an on up the road past the ground coming the other way was a small group of Chelsea struggling with a heavy 22ft timber ladder which they said they had liberated from outside a house. With a bit of effort we manhandled the ladder up the road and lifted into place a the corner of the away end about 30 of us scrambled up the ladder and managed to get into the ground. Watched from near the corner flag where Stan Bowles w
  15. "Chelsea's new ground, built on the site of the old athletic ground at Stamford Bridge, will comfortably accommdate 150,000 spectators". Never heard of any other British grounds that had such a capacity, Walham Green station must have been a crush!
  16. Without a doubt one of the best matches I have ever attended, cloud 9, euphoric, atmospheric!
  17. Used to get away tickets from Arthur Meadows in the back of the 547 shop when booking coach tickets always wore a smart blazer with woven badge on the pocket. He would give you a withering look if you started to misbehave. Looking back he was a Chelsea legend. Anyone else remember him?
  18. Started mid 1970s, a wag added in the "Leicester" bit while singing it in the shed and it just caught on.
  19. Evidently Chelsea FC share the same values , wonder if it relates to making a fortune from our fans ?. To make 3 more exciting maybe they should rename themselves 4.
  20. A sinister series of events recognisable in history, listening posts, messages from public announcement systems, policing by non police.
