  1. Bobby Isaac in the back row, Keith Jones and Dublin in there too.
  2. Same here though I do remember Chelsea 1 Everton 1 coming through on teletext the season before which confirmed our relegation 😞 Also watched the Leeds V Bayern European Cup Final,on TV, went to my first live matches the following season first a game at Selhurst as my dad supported Palace then at Christmas my first glimpse of Chelsea at Orient (1-3) had turned 7 in the August.
  3. I was one of them, interesting to see Millwall V Charlton also attracted a large crowd of 20000 and 30000 at Bolton as well. In fact some pretty healthy crowds all round. Back then going to football at Christmas really was the done thing.
  4. Lokked on the excellent Bounder Friardale site and found a 61000 V spurs in 70/71
  5. One of my favourite photos this that mighty away support packing the homesdale
  6. I know him fairly well and yes not far away from Bromley
  7. Yes, they always looked smart Arsenal. I actually think the look you describe pre dated the sportwear look that the scousers brought back from Europe. Of course they wont have it if you bring up the subject...self righteous as ever
  8. I think the thing with Casual is/was there were only a few bits in the media about it and most after the horse had bolted. So there has been a lot of revisionism regarding how it was and who wore what etc.. The soul crowd rarely gets mentioned as an influence and yet the scousers coming back with trainers and sportswear from Europe is quoted as if it was gospel. Fact is there is far more photographic evidence to back up the london version or its influences than the Scousers sportwear having been the start of things.
  9. I think what they actually started was the sportwear look. So Ellesse, Fila, Tacchini etc with faded lois and adidas trainers which in London was more Nike and Diadora Borg elite. London had long had it's own look which was the Golf jumper, rollneck, Gabicci, Farahs etc which partly came from the soul crowd and also the West Indian lads who went to soul alldayers (Gabicci/Farahs) and was influenced by what you could wear to get into clubs. You were not going to get in dressed like Jimmy Connors. I also had mock Crocs as well by the way 🙂
  10. That's right they were, it's funny Burgundy not a colour i ever wear nowdays, bit too West Ham
  11. Found the photo....Im also in one of the photos of the Boro riot looking in totally the wrong direction while everyone else is screaming at the copper at the gate...not very photogenic me lol F
  12. To be fair to him yes he did, usually it was a kit, first one was the 75-77 umbro kit and last one the first le coq sportif kit. And to be fair I would always get taken to a scattering of Chelsea matches each season which during the crap years wasn't bad going.
  13. Great day that was, I was there, in fact I was at every Palace/Chelsea game in the 80s. I'd been boring my old man for weeks about Pat Nevin (dad was Palace) and actually he had quite a quiet game that day as Henry Hughton was kicking lumps out of him. Then suddenly he picked up the ball and went on a run past 3palace players including Hughton. Then a few minutes later he popped up with the winner...the old man gave a look that said...dont you dare say it 🙂 Im in a photo of this game in front of a Chelsea union jack but managed to ruin it as i was scratching my head with a programme at the time.
  14. Im guessing late 80s because I dont remember the zigger zagger chant being used much around that time
  15. I went across to Barcelona for the first leg on one of those package things with flights, hotel and tickets sat right behind the goal on the bottom tier. All the goals were up the other end but i had a great view of the red card incident, I though Valdez made a real meal of it getting Drogba sent off. I actually didnt see much of the second leg live, I was working up near Manchester that day and hadnt bought a ticket for that reason. Unfortunately I didnt leave Manchester until 6 o clock and was forced to put up with listening to the first half on the radio. Having broken several speed limits i got back home just in time for the last half hour, so never really got the same feeling as having seen it all unfold as it happened. I remember the complaints re our winning goal which in hindsight might have been well founded...good old Carvalho
