  1. Was at those three games too, think we were in the same car up to Sheffield. We were awful in both games, Townsend who had been so good V Spurs who had been so good V spurs was invisible. At home He was so Arsenal back then old Cesc...he had manned up by the time we bought him
  2. We did love a broken crossbar back in the day 🙂
  3. Think you mean David Webb, he's doing that holding a pint pose again 🙂
  4. what a great read that was and so true about peoples personal recollections of matches. I had a similar thing with the infamous Charlton away game in 77 where I swore blind I had seen a Chelsea goal dissallowed due to a fan keeping the ball in play. No one I had spoken to remembered it for years and years and i had started to think perhaps I had imagined it. It wasnt in any of the old paper reports and sadly I had never asked my dad who passed away a few years back and was on that massive east terrace next to me. Then at a recent family funeral my cousin reminded me that he was also there with
  5. I had exactly that uniform, Stan Smiths bought on our school french trip at the cost of no ice creams or sweets for the time i was there, the adidas jacket had a sort of padded red lining, there were some with light and navy blue about but most had this colourway. And Farahs were a must for school and getting into clubs/soul dos
  6. That's a good day/night out Soul Affair at the Burlington, went two or three times with some of my Chelsea mates a few years back. If you're a regular you would probably recognise them.
  7. Still got one of these somewhere, not sure it still fits mind you 🙂
  8. Great thread this, as an old 80s soul boy/casual who happened to go to Chelsea as well I remember all of the clothes and trainers mentioned. It was a youth movement which the media vwas absolutely clueless about and it has allowed a lot of rubbish to be published about it in recent years. One myth is that scousers invented'' casual...well that just isnt true, therre were two looks for starters...1- the tennis brands (Fila, tacchini, ellesse etc) with bleached jeans and trainers and then there was 2-The soulboy casual look, Golf Jumpers farahs rollnecks worn with loafers for going out to clubs
  9. They were worth many hundreds until a certain company started encouraging Fila to make cheap replicas in every colour under the sun. I ended up selling my collection off for peanuts for that very reason. You can still tell an original from a mile off mind you 😉
  10. I know what you mean, I had a great collection of old Ellesse, Fila and Sergio but unless it's a decent fit a tracktop doesn't look great on a 50 plus year old. I sold most of mine a while back just kept three sergio dallas (all three shades of blue) and a capomaster (blue with white stripe and collar. Plus an old ellesse which stays at my mums for when im over in the UK. Only occasional wear these days but still love them.
  11. Bit like this one of Fillery, never wore it in a proper match
  12. I don't get across much these days living abroad but when I do i meet my mates either in the North End Rd or Lillie Rd so come out of west Brompton and walk right past it. It's funny how a building can make you feel so nostalgic
  13. In the case of Malouda he replaced Arjen Robben but was a different kind of player (less explosive ) so that contributed to him being under valued. He had a great season when we won the double i remember
  14. Interesting to see how far back that terracing went, that bit behind the floodlight base and the hut was well overgrown by then. I know some people were allowed to stand there (in that section) for the Boro playoff game
  15. One of my favourite old stamford bridge photos...the old scoreboard, north stand terraces, great old umbro kit and the Empress Building looming over proceedings (spent many a moment staring up at that mysterious blue and white building wondering what it was...I now know it was a police intelligence headquarters....wernt keeping much of an eye on Stamford Bridge at that time that's for sure....
  16. Just Love this photo, it instantly transports me back in time to my early years of coming to the bridge. Newcastle to be fair were probably the most consitent away support numbers wise from outside the capital
  17. Bobby Isaac in the back row, Keith Jones and Dublin in there too.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Lokked on the excellent Bounder Friardale site and found a 61000 V spurs in 70/71
