Have a look at old games on youtube mate, or have a look at mirrorpix, put in fixtures/dates ect you might get lucky.

My memory not as good as it was perhaps thats why i never asked you for that £20 i lent you in 1998? lol  what i do know is that i was behind northsatnd goal when we beat ipswich and alan hudson scored but he never did the shot hit the side netting and went under   remember watching big match the next day to see if i could see myself on the box

What we really want to know is whether you were asked to waste time :) ?

Was there an incident at Stamford Bridge in the 70s with a ball boy? I think that it was against Fulham.

Yes there was 1975-76 the ball went pass the post the ball boy held on to the ball until the chelsea players where ready for the goal kick to be taken, Fulham goalkeeper Ian Mellor grabbed the ball out of his hands and claimed he was waiting for a signal from Bill Garner, alas the game ended 0-0
