Nice gesture and not before time, hope this is true

Chelsea - Osgood Statue Latest

After much deliberation and consideration, it pleases us all here at Vital Chelsea to hear that the statue for the King of Stamford Bridge, the late, great Peter Osgood, has finally been commisioned by the club.

The prolific striker will stand proudly at the entrance to the West Stand, outside Stamford Bridge. His wife, Lynn, is being consulted on the design of the statue.

Ossie made 289 appearances for the Blues over two seperate spells in SW6, between 1965-1974 and 1978-1980. He scored 93 goals in that time, earning him a heady position in the club's all-time top-goalscorer charts.

He will always be remembered as a club legend, winning the 1970 FA Cup Final, after scoring in the 2-1 replay win over Leeds United. He also notched up a European Cup Winners' Cup medal in 1971, scoring in 1-1 draw against Real Madrid in the final, and again in the 2-1 replay victory. He also won the FA Cup again in 1976, with Southampton.

Osgood is fondly remembered as the King of Stamford Bridge, and this soon-to-be unveiled memorial will ensure his legacy at the club is never, ever forgotten.

Peter Osgood 1947-2006

He may have left us in body, but his memory and spirit will remain at the Bridge for ever.

Nice touch and loooooong overdue!

Got to be better than a plaque the size of a beer-mat in a place no-one can access.

Well done!

I take it this would go in the ground in front of the West Stand? Is there any other place with the sightlines?

Anyone wanna speculate baselessly on the pose they might use? The pictures of Ossie doing keep-ups in the pregame, or holding the FA cup aloft in the scarf would look amazing, though that might look a little strange with no other hand holding it up

You say that, but up here in Newcastle we have a lovely art, which provides much fun for drunkards on the weekends!

If Kenyon is worried about the price, I'm sure myself a few of the lads can go and appropriate it, and then Ozzification can take place before it goes up at the Bridge...
