Pictures with our double trophies

Actually I've just found out it will be with three trophies because the community shield is available as well. Looking forward to adding these to my collection of being pictured with every trophy we've won since '97.

What an incredibly emotional experience that turned out to be. Kudos to the photographer who clearly saw how much the moment meant to me (partly because I struggled to answer him when he asked how I felt standing with the trophies). In fact I'm getting a lump in my throat thinking of how I was feeling at that precise moment (those childhood dreams coming back to me again).

I can't seem to upload the picture on to here because it's been saved in an adobe file and I don't know how to save it into another file type so apologies for that but what I will say to all of you - if you do get the chance to have your photo taken with these trophies then do it. £15 for being part of an amazing piece of history is a small price to pay in my eyes especially having waited 44 years as a Chelsea fan to experience such a moment.

You remind me of that guy in WWF wrestling who went around with that tennis racket! can't remember his name and it will bug me for hours.

Thinking about going on another tour this year and with those 3 being there it might be the best time to go.

And here we have it, Geezer clearly after a diet he wasn't on when he joined me for lunch in Greenock!

Superb mate, that has to go up as splash picture for one of the threads along with the players Loz. Geezer, you truly are a geezer.

Great piece of memorabilia. Although I do think they could have been more careful with the lighting when they took the shot. There are great big shadows on geezer's face and great big glare on the Community Shield. Or does the picture just look darker(with harsher contrast) in that screen capture for some reason? Still, that's what I call a "Kodak moment". ::ChELSeAFaN::

How did you go about getting it done Geezer? Want to have it myself - I assume a normal tour of the museum? Cheers ::ChELSeAFaN::

It's slightly different to previous years Gem in that you don't go to the shop. Immediately behind the shop (opposite the loo's) there is a staircase which leads to the start of the tours etc. The cashier is at the top of the stairs, merely ask for a picture with the trophies hand over your £15 and Bob's your uncle and Fanny's your aunt! They did actually charge me £6 extra for a pass to the museum which I didn't even realise cos I was far too excited knowing I was about to get my hands on those trophies but you don't have to buy that as far as I'm aware.

If you look closely at the Premiership trophy you'll see the photographer and the camera itself so no, not too clever but hey - I'm officially a double (treble) champion now so who cares?

Yeah, no reason to be picky when you're officially a double(treble) champion! ::ChELSeAFaN::

Cheers Geezer, much appreciated. Thinking about booking it online for next weekend just to be sure I get a spot. Do they email you the picture and get a hard copy? Fantastic photo, might have to dig my Euopean Cup Winners Cup photo now ::ChELSeAFaN::

It's a hard copy. Actually wasn't much of a queue for pictures when I went though there were a lot of tourists doing the tour.
