Chelsea team the year you were born.

We held league champions iverpool to a draw. Featuring a fantastic free kick from Barnes and a Hitchcock penalty save in the 85th minute. 

Must explain why I'm such a glory hunter ?. I was born in the week when we were equal to the best team in the country. 

Looked it up. We got relegated that season (via a playoff) despite only losing 2 home games all year.

Ossie and Tony Hateley are missing for some reason.

 

This was the team that played the day after I was born : a 2-1 win away at Burnley in February 1967 !

So I was born in 1965, but i was born into a predominently West Ham family. I switched allegience on League Cup final day 1972, so below is the squad from the day i became a fan.

A slightly larger and more in focus version of the photo you posted 2 years ago further up the thread LOL

Technology has advanced in the last two years it seems.

Browsing through the forum normally takes me to the first unread post of the topic, how the f**k should I be anticipating someone would dig up a two year old thread and be expected remember something highly insignificant I did two years ago?
