watched some old 70's cup games on chels tv this week................and webby looked just like Ivan - he was big & strong (like ivan), versatile, whole hearted, and no one ever fronted him up, same as ivan..............he got a few more goals than ivan tho (so far)

webby often played right back was really a centre back..........sound familiar

any better matches anyone?

Ian Hutchinson and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink.

Don't take my word for it. Ossie said he would have loved to play alongside Jimmy Floyd because he reminded him of Hutch, minus the long throw Jimmy Floyd was also of course, far more fortunate when it came to injuries.

How about Chopper and JT? Very different players, even though both are/were central defenders, a lot of these differences can be put down to the different eras in which they play(ed). Both players came through the ranks to become captains of trophy winning teams, setting appearance records, both were the Mr Chelsea's of their day.

I think Drogba would of been even more prolific back then.

Not so sure he would have liked playing on the muddy / sandy pitches (not sure any of the current players would to be honest) and it would have been interesying to see Drogba up against the likes of Norman Hunter and Tommy Smith.

As good as Duff was for us for a season or so, don't think he can be compared to Charlie Cooke, who used to regularly beat players again and again (and then once more just for fun - as did wee Pat in the '80's).

I would say Bonnetti and Cech. Two great keepers with Bonnetti being great despite only having a little pair of green cotton gloves and not the big padded things they wear today!

Often no gloves at all if you look at some of the old matches.

As a young goalkeeper the Cat was always my hero (along with Gordon Banks)

I know - imagine trying to stop an Alex free kick with NO GLOVES!!

I'm sure anyone around my age had a pair of Peter Bonnetti gloves when they were a kid. put them on and you became "The Cat". Used to rub mud into them for that extra protection and ball stickability!!
