    Been reminiscing and looking at real early old Chelsea games/picures and its amazing just how much the supporters have changed.
    Not just the people but the Chelsea area in general. The same  and totally different now than it was then at the same time..
    The houses might look similar on the outside to a degree but everything else from the cars,the insides of them, to the class of peeps living there.
    Chelsea supporters have just got to travel further now I suppose.
    Love these old pictures from 67 and 1970 down Slaidburn Street . The eve of the Chelsea v Leeds FA Cup Final .The 1st time we won the cup since we were founded after 3 finals before it  But with us winning after  a drawn 1st game and the replay at Old Trafford/ with the biggest TV audience after the world cup with 28 million for the Wenley game and 32 million viewers for the replay!!  And with crowds of 100k at Wembley. 63k at Old Trafford.it's often ranked up there with the best Cup Finals ever.  And with Webby showing just how handy it is to have someone like  Hutchinson with a long throw in and it makes you wonder why its not used more now. Hutch would be good for those bus parkers. Just as long as they weren't as injury prone as him eh!
    Just watch at the passion these lads had. Both lots  going in rock hard. No diving and play acting. 'Eeeee lad, back in my day!!
    I can remember watching my uncle going off the next year ro the European Cup Winners final v RM in Greece. It was the only time he had been out of the country. 7 or 8 of his mates stayed the night before hand and can remember my old dear telling them off for swearing so much in front of me LOL
    Heres hilights of the 1st game and all of the replay
     
     
    Shows the support and the passion of the area and their love of their local football team.
    This was the day before the 67 cup fnal v Spuds that we lost!!

    These were from the 1970 game


     
    And around Worlds End. Brilliant old pics.

    I like the idea of helping those in need cause one day it might just be me.
    How about if I didn't want my tax $$ spent on the military? i dont have the right to tell them I'm not paying my taxes cause i dont want us being involved in other countries problems.

    Ate mate!
    Would love to see him have a really good partner! Someone with a bit of muscle when needed but a baller.
    I'd try Dave there. Would be better than where he is now.  Bring Reece in. Zappa as back up if we keep him

    Being a relative late commer to TC and having looked back at some of the banter theres been I would have loved to have been here for those times.
    ALL of it TO ME seemed very harmless and some taken more serious than I'm sure it was meant, but sometimes sarcasm and banter doesn't transfer well into text only. We don't have the benefit of facial expressions or voice changes. Think thats why Emojis were developed.
    I think having some of these guys back would be great.
    In no way am I telling peeps what to do as its nowt to do with me but as an idea why dont you guys who were around back when just drop them a Msg or Email telling them to get their arse back here. I was only away a few weeks and I got 8.
    I know there must be a facility for Admin to send out blanket Emails. Just send one wishing everyone a Happy New Year or summet. Tell them they are missed and TC is still alive and kicking.
    I would love to see this place jumping.
    Love and Peace TC

  15. Johnnyeye liked a post in a topic by Unionjack in Sarri But Not Sarri Thread   
    Hes got a bunch of players noit suited to 'his style' of football.
    We talk about the Spuds freeze but our lads dont have any fight in them.
    It only affects me when I lose the plot at us. So I try really hard not to bitch and whine like many on here, even tho they have every valid reason to do it. But our players make it fuckin hard sometime to keep carefree!
    If they can't give a fuck if they play like wankers and make us look pathetic why the hell should I not call them what they are? Theree's only 7 I would keep out of them all - and 2 of them will be gone. .I just hope that whoever owns us come the summer of 2020 that they realize the shite we are in and  they do something drastic and rebuild us from the top down.

    Doesn't give Dave too much to do then eh.
    i totally agree about picking the cunt in the first place. Thats 1 of the 3 things that pisses me off about Sarri.
    But Alonso doesn't have even the basics down right now. How often does he get a cross past the 1st closest to him? How often does he take it to the baseline?
    @MoroccanBlue is dead right what he says. The system of Sarris CAN work and has but this bunch of gutless wet farts lack both the character and the abilities needed to play it.

    The biggest shock in that piece of news is that Myspace still exists, wtf... Didn't it vanish around the time when Orkut did?

    Myspace lost all the music its users uploaded between 2003 and 2015
    Over 50 million songs are gone.
    https://www.residentadvisor.net/news/43460
    A large chunk of the Myspace archive has been lost. 

    Reports have been circulating on Reddit , blogs  and social media that 12 years worth of data uploaded between 2003 and 2015 is no longer accessible due to a "server migration project." At least 50 million songs were uploaded by 14 million artists over the period. 

    A grey bar at the top of Myspace's music pages reads, "As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest that you retain your back up copies." 

    Myspace was the dominant social media platform in the late 2000s and became a de facto music hosting platform for many artists and labels. After being purchased by News Corporation and losing ground to emerging services like Facebook, its value and user base plummeted, leading to a joint purchase from Specific Media Group and Justin Timberlake in 2011. Another period of struggle lead to another sale to Time Inc. in 2016, which itself was acquired by Meredith Corporation last year.

    It's been a year since the music links on Myspace stopped working; at first the company insisted that they were working on it, but now they've admitted that all those files are lost: "As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest that you retain your back up copies. If you would like more information, please contact our Data Protection Officer, Dr. Jana Jentzsch at DPO@myspace.com."
    Yeah, apparently they don't have a backup.
    Someday, this will happen to Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc. Don't trust the platforms to archive your data. The Internet Archive will host anything freely distributable, for free, forever, and they have mirrors of their servers in California, Egypt and Amsterdam. They're a mission-driven nonprofit supported by philanthropists, foundations, and small-money donations (I'm an annual donor).

    We've come from behind only ONCE to win in the league this season and that was at home against Cardiff.
