This is tough, it sorts out the JCL's (Surely you all read Rick Glanvill's book?)

This came from the threads of posters disgruntled about Roman's methods or approach.

Very easy to vote for the founders.. and I understand it is very diffilcult to compare era's in football but I think it should be thought of as the methods and approach to running the club.

Mears family, Scottish and started the club. Love that!

however, it was WAY before my time, so to be honest, I've only ever watched Chelsea since 94, so for me it has to be ken bates

Tough one! As a pre-Batesean I'd have to go for the founding Mears, because the later Mears got us into bother (East Stand anyone?), which old Ken eventually had to sort out. So, although I'm not Ken's biggest fan, he does deserve some thanks, but can I actually put a tick in the box......? Nope.

However, it seems like everyone has pros and cons - but I've gone for nostalgia - easy cop-out icon_wink.gif
