Morning....After getting a swift n brief nostalgia trip early this morning watching a clip that included "Eccles" i wondered if anyone knew of a couple of characters from early 70s chelsea. The first one was a known character at many chelsea games..Known on trains away...I watched him , as an aquaintance grow from a slim fit skinhead, to , lets say (incase he still uses his bovver boots) a portly man..I once went out with an ex of his and was turned over outside the Bridge by a small mob of his mates who he had told i was a man city fan..It was a clever move....He came i think from Elephant n castle..His name Bill Finney...Wondered if hes still with us n what hes doing in life...The second is a blond shedgirl known by the name MANDY WHITE..I think from aylesbury...A friendly girl....Anyone know how they are?

I remember Bill from back in the early 70's when he only young, he'd always be hanging around Fulham Broadway station before a game. Haven't seen him since then though, or maybe I have and didn't recognise him.

I got to know the guy from the old football specials. Like yourself I haven't seen him for years. Unless my memory is playing tricks (which is quite possible after all this time) he was missing a couple of front teeth. Oh and he loved a drink!

had a drink and a laugh with bill a few times at the bridge and away games, bit of a funny fooker and always laughing. thought he came from kennington, but that's close enough to the elephant to be unimportant. remember him running across the pitch on a televised game once wearing his customary scruffy sheepsking, not seen or heard of him for many a year now though. he was also pretty well known at millwall due to him being from where he was and i've heard tell that he saved a few chelsea from a battering at the 76 game.

Anyone remember Colin from the mid 70s? He had a blond Ziggy Barnet and I remember he gave me and my brother a ride to Brighton for a bank holiday outing before we went to Charlton in the evening where, oddly, their stand caught fire!

Yep,sure it was CD. There used to be a fair few of us who'd meet in what was then the Red House on Chelsea Green on Friday nights to plan away outings the next day. It's now a nightmare gastro joint but used to host some naughty boys.

I'm pretty much sure if we ask king nicely he might put a picture of bill and colin up in here as to what they look like to-day

I had a pic of me & Bill from a game last season on my old phone but its now broke, though i'm not on it myself i bet he is on fb, anyone on there if you find him why not invite him on here?

No idea, but I'd be interested to know - used to hang around with his little mob when I was about 15 or 16 (72/73)

If it's the same Tank I'm thinking of, he lived somewhere around Romford way or maybe Loughton, but definitely Essex. He had a mate called Tiny, not as dark skinned but a little Semitic looking. Going back to 1971-1972, we often used to go places after home games, including Battersea Funfair, Waterloo (with a couple of girls in tow) and the Serpentine/Hyde Park or sometimes up West.

Naaa we mostly just used to look around, tight bar stewards that we were.  And besides, tip the lady into bed was a much better game!
