Fulham Broadway

Ken Shellito

Started by Fulham Broadway,

Was thrown in the deep end after the board decided stupidly to get rid of Eddie McCreadie and was on the backfoot from day one. It was basically an impossible job the club were skint and poor old Ken did his best RIP mate.

Remember swapping Ken Shellito football cards in the playground :D

and Mcreadie - 40 year spat with Chelsea because Mears wouldn't give him a ford Escort. Lol can you imagine Sarri storming out because Abarmovich wouldn't give him a Ford Focus ?

In his book called Eddie Mac Eddie Mac he says he didn't leave over the car can't remember why he said he did. Good book it is FB there's interviews from fans and players from that era you forget just how potless we were the players had to take a paycut just to keep the club going. I couldn't imagine Sarri storming out over a Ford Focus but I could imagine Mourinho doing it over something like why there aren't enough mirrors in his office:)

The book is from when he was managing the club although he does talk about his early days. He plays for the God Squad now and has done for years. Great team that FB I started supporting in 1970 and started going in 75 and as you know mate it was just a tad different then.

This was one of Kens greatest moments Iggy - our biggest attendance that season, beating European Champions Forest.

I really thought Aylott would be the dogs bollocks but this was his finest moment

Two goals in two games and that was it. I was at that Forest game bought a few mates from school who were instantly converted to Chelsea because they loved the anarchy of the Shed you didn't get that in the Loft or Arse's Northbank.
