This made me laugh out loud !!

If you thought the ultimate union of football and 1980s music was Chelsea's NME reading winger Pat Nevin - a self-confessed fan of the rightly obscure Crispy Ambulance - dating Clare Grogan, think again.

Here's Mickey Thomas on an equally momentous liaison which occurred just before the Blues stunned European champions Liverpool in 1984: "We had just been promoted but we stuffed them 3-1. I wasn't playing but I remember the day because before the game Boy George and Culture Club were on the pitch filming a video.

"George made a play for our pretty-boy defender Joe McLaughlin - he fancied him and started coming on to him. Big Joe's face was a picture.

"I got my photo taken with George later - fortunately he didn't chain me to a radiator."

Another quote from Mickey Thomas in an interview:

Interviewer: ''Mickey, at what stage of your career did you earn the most money?''

Thomas: ''Probably when I had a printing press and was making my own''

(Thomas had just been released after being arrested for possession of countfiet notes)

I went to a an official supporters club meeting in Ashford, Kent in the mid 80's where the guesta were Ken Bates' son Robert (wwhat a tosser) and Mickey Thomas who was unbelievably controversial, yet great fun. He was giving out £20 notes for the lads to get the beers in (true, I swear) which was before he got nicked. Can't go into detail about what he said but suffice to say I'll never forget that evening!! What a character..
