Southampton away was carnage! Going past the school after the game was like riot. 

Remember a lad in our school who originated from Southampton, went back to relations there for the weekend, he said as he came into Southampton on the Friday night before the game, daubed on a big wall in huge letters it said 'Chelsea are back', he mentioned the school as well, I remember it being on the TV local news as well.

A fence got ripped up on the way back to the station ( was that the school?)

Didn’t  really fathom why cause couldn’t see any Southampton anywhere.

Never got vandalism. More of a 70s thing. Saw the aftermath of plumbing getting ripped out of the karzi at Derby in 82, and a few smashed windows at Luton circa 81 and that’s about it.

Totally agree about vandalism pointless and a waste of time and energy. I always thought especially in the mid to late 70's early 80's Chelsea's  away support even though I was only a young teenager myself had more vandals then thugs. Someone like West Ham or Millwall had geezers looking for a punch up Chelsea had a lot of young kids looking for a bit of anarchy and destruction.

No idea to be fair about the fence ,it was a good few years back 🙂 no idea why the school got damaged either ...I guess as you say just vandalism for the sake of it...

Southampton used a car park at the school. Loads were giving it large behind the fence. People back then took offence (pun intended!) The mesh fence started to sway and Southampton scattered!

I seem to remember a few CFC got into the Walsall end just before kick off and then got moved out by Old Bill and put in the away end... we were stood just down the side by the away fans in a CFC section as we had behind the goal and where we were on the side

Seem to recall we were 2 - 0 at one stage and were lucky to get out with a draw

Remember being behind the goal in the pouring rain and getting a 2-2 draw. 84/85 was a crazy calendar of fixtures than I can remember!   If you look on the bounder friardale site and look how little we rotated players it’s amazing. We had weeks where we played Saturday, Monday, Wednesday then Saturday!! Modern footballers would have a big shock.
