" Those were the days my friend ............."
Jackie Charlton and Norman Hunter.....we had nNobbie Stiles.
I play in a Sunday League ( after playing Rugby On the Saturday.)
I had been kicked on the knee and had a couple of stitches in a cut.
Before the game Nobbie came to watch. He saw my bandaged knee. He told me not to wear the bandage over the wound but to put it on the other leg !!! Said the buggers will go for that one and leave the other alone. Worked too.
Liverpool's Tommy Smith was a great player " with a cutting edge".
There were many "kickers " in those days,
Yes Chelsea seem to be on an cliff-hanging edge. Will they go.....I hope so. Sure you will too.
