  1. There was a rumour doing the rounds at the time that he'd landed one on Ian Porterfield on the way back from Sunderland, after we'd been knocked out of the FA Cup in 92. It was pretty well known that he never wanted to leave Chelsea, as he came from a staunch Chelsea family, in a very Chelsea part of London.
  2. Now, I'd hazard a guess that I'm in the same boat as most of us who post on here, in that I could never imagi n e myself wea ring the shirt of any other club. Then I saw this today.........
  3. I'm the same as you in that I've never been in the middle section of the new West Stand, but barring the old North Stand have been in every part of the Bridge since 1970. I didn't start going regularly until Dec 71, but had been taken to one match when I was 9, it was St Patricks Day 1970 and we were playing Stoke at home. I'd been told that I was going to Stamford Bridge before going to school that morning, so you can imagine what a looooooooong day that turned out to be. No real memories of the game, but I was sat in the old East Stand and according to my mum, who was attending the only match she ever went to, I just sat staring at the Shed for 2 hours. Only been in the East middle once, I was a bit flush at the time and decided to splash out for a seat for the evening kick off against City, 92/3 I think, dreadful dull 0-0, and the only thing that stands out memory wise is the fact that I was really impressed by the carpets in the corridors, lovely thick navy blue with the club badge woven in.
  4. "Dennis Brown scored for us" And 15 years or so later released the reggae classic Money in my Pocket
  5. The Cov player on the cover of the programme is Roy Barry, he joined Coventry from Dunfermline Athletic up the road, and was a member of their Scottish Cup winning team in 1968, he later went on to play for Palace. How do I know this stuff you may ask? Not a google or wikipedia search but a more personal story. During the Summer of 84, just after THAT season had ended, I was working for a scaffolding/exhibition building company putting up all the bits and pieces for Farnborough Air Show, is so happened that Roy had hit hard times after a spell staying at one of her maj's gaffs. His pa in law was one of our directors and he gave Roy a summer's work labouring with us. Roy was a completely top bloke, very down to earth and as you can imagine our tea breaks were taken up with tales from the pro game. One other bonus was our occasional game of football against the lads who did all the canvassing and sheeting on top of our scaffolds, we had some centre half for those matches. He also tried to give me some tips as I was a Sunday League centre half at the time, I had to tell him though that the stuff he was telling me would get me banned for weeks/months at a time, it was then that I realised just what a brutal game the pros play, great bloke though and I hope he went on to live a happy life, all the best Roy.
  6. Couldn't agree more with regards next season and any possible signings. I'd like to see one huge, headline signing, then put the rest back into a nice little ISA or something, for a rainy day. It must be very heartening for the current Cobham crop to see that it can be done as long as you are a/ good enough, and b/ prepared to put the work in to get there This season could be the catalyst for Cobhams success for the foreseeable future, here's hoping.
  7. Paid for the games and had 360 minutes of buffering so , turns out it needed Ad Block to be switched off. Money has been refunded and apologies isued, fair play to the club though, they allowed us to keep the link for today's game, and after disabling AdBlock had a pretty good stream of today's game.
  8. The Super Cup may be there, but where on earth is the Cross Channel Trophy?
  9. Kieran Trippier, brought me immense joy when the going was a bit rough.
  10. I experienced a very odd thing yesterday, a glass of water that I'd taken up to bed the night before, and was half empty yesterday morning, was somehow, miraculously even, half full by the time I retired last night.......carefree.
  11. In a season that's been memorable for crap performances we've hit a new low so far tonight, absolutely f**king shocking Chelsea. Too much deadwood in the squad.
  12. Well that couldn't have gone any better could it?
  13. Think I've posted on this pic before, taken approximately 5 minutes walk from my front door, and from reading the thread most of them have been correctly identified, it is John Sparrow in the leather coat, and has Ray Lewington been mentioned yet? F1905, it is Les Briley, came from my estate and lived about 100 yards from my school, went on to become a Millwall stalwart for many years, and I went out with his sister for a while. Maybank, and later on, Pates and Fillery were all Mitcham lads, but it was Eddie Macs side that I would often watch in the morning, SE Counties League, before heading off to the match in the afternoon.
  14. I was in the Park Lane seats that day, as well as the season previous, when Mickey Hazard made his return to 3PL and scored a screamer, and as was mentioned earlier in the thread, the crush in there that day in 87 looked to be heading in the direction of a serious incident, great support though.
  15. Hazard false 9, no Reuben, Callum or Higuain, yet the same old out of form players are selected again, a team sent out to hope for a miracle penalty shoot out win, think I'll take the dogs out.
