Went on a coach from Battersea(i think) to Walsall in the league cup in 84.Thinking of getting the train up without a ticket for the match and this fella offered me a match ticket if i travelled up on his coach, obviously looking for a few more bums on seats. Bit of a mad lot. Remember some of them going in their end and mentioning someone called "mad ox" had been nicked. Stopped off at a pub in Coventry on the way back and the landlord looked terrified as people piled in. "This isnt a coach party is it lads" he said. "No mate - two cars" came the reply as the 45th geezer came through the door.

There was a time when you couldn't find a coach firm in West London willing to take Chelsea fans, and going by some of the things I've seen, you honestly couldn't blame them. To get round this coaches would be booked as Union Outings or even School Trips, but for obvious reasons Union Outings were the more plausible.

 

Not that it took the coach firms too long to catch on.
