There's a piece in today's Guardian about best goals that have gone in off the woodwork. They chose six including this one by Brian Bason against Carlisle in 1975. Bason run a boozer not far from where I lived in the early 90's . He only played a handful of games for us as I recall, there's also an interview with a 18 year old Ray Wilkins after the game who has a full head of hair and looking like an extra from Saturday Night Fever. Glad I was too young to have missed out dressing like that the size of the shirt collar is ridiculous :D

Top goalage there Iggy and the interview with Ray Wilkins -18 years old !

Think Bason was with us as junior but never attained greatness. RIP Brian Moore

Love them collars. Had a shirt made with a button down long point. Its them old Jumbo round collars that they should bring back. Hard as hell to find nice old ones of them around.

Remember it well the very next day I had an interview for a school not far from the Bridge. I never got in which I was delighted about. This was probably Peter Houseman's best game for us. Tottenham's pitch was worse than Wembley's for the final.

That 5-1 always springs to mind every time we've played them since. RIP Houseman a regular at No 11 with Cooke on the right No 7 -as effective as Duff and Robben

Ruud signed 21 years ago.:clap:

Saw his debut in a Paul Elliott testimonial - what a class player. 40-50 yard pinpoint passes, and taking games by the scruff of the neck.

 

The start of the Chelsea revolution.

i went to his first game at west brom a pre season friendly.

I know I have posted this video here several times before, but I can't find it and I'm not even sure this thread is the correct place for this. It's my favourite Chelsea video of all time hands down. Uploaded in 2006, it was also one of the first I ever saw on youtube. I remember the emotions it gave me when I first saw it... goosebumps, made my hair sit up.It's just so awesome and the shitquality.exe video makes it tad bit more special, I don't know why :D  I still rewatch it once in a while, I just watched it again after a few years and decided to share it here again.

Also started listening to Oasis thanks to this, The Masterplan remains my favourite song from them. The most perfect song ever to accompany this emotional rollercoaster.

Who hasn't seen, enjoy...

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!!
