    I'll kick it off with KC and the Sunshine Band Give It Up. I clearly remember the words being changed to Chelsea's going up going up Chelsea's going up towards the end of the season

    Fantastic film, can't he;lp but feel that was the heyday of the old stadium which was starting to age by the time i started going in the mid 70s

    Chance Encounters as a Chelsea Fan

    Yes that's right sometimes 3 matches a weekend but usually caught a few games at the start and end of the season and Xmas/Easter. Did have a couple of lengthy football suspensions too which i took advantage of and went to Chelsea instead of the honourable option of supporting my teammates. Yep I did and do have a somewhat twisted sense of humour lol Actually I found it easier to go more when the sunday afternoon games kicked in in the 90s/00s used to often play then jump straight on a train up to the bridge.

    Chance Encounters as a Chelsea Fan

    Got a few of these actually, first of all back in the 90s I was working in the West End and used to go for a walk at lunch times after too long cooped up inside. Walking round the area near Grosvenor Square I suddenly see a car pull up and a very injured Eddie Newton hop out on crutches. I walked and asked him how long he would be out for and wished him luck with the recovery. When I first moved to Amsterdam I had a job near the Ajax stadium and again being bored in an office I would go walking at lunch times and quite often browse round the sports shops. One particular day Im checking out the reduced football boots when I saw Ruud Gullit chasing his escaped toddlers down the aisle. I smiled knowingly at that one ha ha And lastly a few seasons ago I was working back in the UK and started going fairly regularly again. Went to the game and then on to the pub near the North End Road afterwards and well refreshed I ambled down to West Brompton and catch a train to Clapham Junction. So at Clapham I get on a London Loop line train Only to find it's taking me back where i came from... being well refreshed it takes me til West Brompton to realise and I jump back on a Southbound train, at Imperial Wharf on steps this young lad and his dad who i soon recognise as Rob Isaac and start chatting. Anyway we get to Clapham and he asks where are you heading and it turns out he lives not far from where i was staying at my mums, and he offers me a lift from Croydon where his missus is picking him up. Of course the whole way we are chatting Chelsea etc and I realise (had an inkling already) what a fan he is who actually had the chance to pull on the shirt as well. Anyway, I got a lift home and have met up since when i've been over for a match. top top fella. bound to be on here somewhere too. Non player chance encounters, waiting for some mates in a pub on the Kings Rd 2010 when hear a voice i recognise and it's a guy i used to go to matches with in the early to mid 90s including Liverpool away where we took over the Mic in a merseyside nightclub much to the amusement of the locals. Also played in a sunday team with him from Walworth. Also in the late 80s there was a fella at the same nightschool class as me who one night spotted my CFC pin badge and surprised me (he was of indian decent) by saying he not only supported Chelsea but went to matches. Many years went past and I suddenly bump into him at an away game in the 2000s couldve been Bolton away. and of course the starter of the post here Strider with whom i used to go to matches for a few years who I bumped into locally after not having seen him for years.

    1970s

    For me these days it's just as much about the social side, Always want to get to the game of course but that's just the cherry on top

    1970s

    My first game was Christmas 75 so i started on a low 2nd division football and the remnants of the great 70s cup team. But the following season I got to see Eddie Mcreadies young guns get us back up in front of huge crowds followed by the struggle of staying and failing to stay in the top flight. Arsenal away 79 2-5 felt like a low with them singing going down at us in truth we were down well before. Ossies last hurrah, I saw his second home debut in a shocker V bristol city. It was probably the last few seasons of the heyday of the shed 76-84. Yep the football was grim 79-83 but sometimes it still felt like an occasion going to watch Chelsea depending on the oppo or if it was a nice FA Cup plum tie.

    I always called them Baker Boy hats. Really wanted one as a kid but could never find one
  12. I'd say Michael Ballack, who spent most of his time playing out of position

    Away support

    Bet there was a fair sized Chelsea contingent in that 8000

    It's one of the curious things about Chelsea isn't it. Our support can't be totally pinned down to specific areas and never could really. despite obvious strongholds like wandsworth battersea and pimlico. We always had fans dotted about well into the home counties. Hickeys mob were from Tunbridge wells, there were big contingents from Slough, Camberley, Kingston. Myself I used to get the train up from Orpington and Bromley and there were always plenty of others using that line.
