And on this day


Recommended Posts

Just four Chelsea matches have been played on 29th February


Chelsea 2-1 Sunderland

Div I


Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 Chelsea

Div I


Chelsea 0-3 Sheffield Wednesday

Div I


Marseille 1-0 Chelsea

UEFA Champions League Second Round Group D

The only Chelsea players to score on this day are Ron Harris and Bobby Tambling (1964), and Fred Rouse in 1908, Chelsea had come of at half-time losing 1-0, Sunderland missed a penalty in the match, but "Freddy Ready", as he was known, banged in two great goals in this our first season in Div I. It has now been 104 years since we won on this day.

In 2016 it will fall on a Monday, but following that in 2020 it will be a Saturday again (as it is once every 28 years). Let's hope our strikers can see cleary on that day in 2020*.
