And so began our love affair with THAT team, many of us were in our teens then and to think now us old gits in our 50's and still talk about them, and it wasn't because they won loads, a promotion and full members cup, were the grand total. I wonder if the players of THAT team know how fondly we regard them

Agreed totally and that is a good question.

I feel the same way about the current team, 

 I just really like them and our manager, same as that team back in the 80s.

I've been lucky enough to have had a chat with Kerry at a couple of functions here in MK, and Chelsea players from that era really do know how well loved they are.

11698-zoom.jpgsorry about the size sorry about the size !  Another of the  crazy gang who played for us. Thought he was a decent player, although many disagree

Booked about 5 seconds after kick off v Sheff Utd.

We had a few brutes in the early 90s, Cascarino, Wise, Hartford, Peter Nicholas

Remember the 5 second booking, we were in the East Stand v Sheff Utd that day and practically level with the tackle, me my dad and some his mates just looked at each other and thought what the f**k? Vinnie stayed on and played well, if I remember right he missed the home game in quarter final v Sunderland and we missed him, very underated our Vinnie

I saw Vinnie Jones's debut against Luton we beat them 4-1 Vinny played well but what he did was encourage and gee Dennis Wise up through the whole game. Wise was definitely a better player after that because he was really average till that point Vinny gave him the kick up the arse he needed.

They were obviously trying to invent a new goal celebration. Some Polish fans must have been in there and took the idea back to Poznan.

Jones did alright for a while certainly made teams fear us a bit more and yes against Sheffield Utd he got the fastest booking in FA Cup history though lets not forget with us a goal up and the opposition number trying to knock him out Jones ducked and weaved with his hands clearly behind his back, he had a footballing brain.

His goal up at Anfield helped us get our first win up there in decades.

Football technical skill perhaps 6/10 though commitment wise 9.5/10, IMO.

Mick Harford.

Surprised when we got Harford as he was not a big name and a bit older, his 9 goals in 28 games was not a bad return and some of them were good goals.
