    Puts in perspective when people say 19k v Millwall is poor

    Yes and probably 5,000- 6,000 of those were Chelsea.

    Clive Walker was a very good player in those days for them. Quick, skillful and direct. We had only just come back up to Division 2 but held our own. Would that have been Kevin Hales in their line-up that evening?

    Also Colin Pates and John Bumstead who would go on to play for us later in their careers.
  • Loads of Chelsea infiltrated the Covered End seats. @Addickted saw them off after Killer put us 2-1 ahead though:)

    Clive Walker was an entertaining player. He could cross with either foot and was comfortable going inside or outside his man. Got goals too.
  • Didn't Chelsea try and burn the Covered End down that day? I was only 7 but have a vague memory or rumours going round that they had started fires under the stand!

    That was the 1976 Easter Monday game when we won 4-0 and Mike Flanagan scored a hat trick
  • One substitute used across the 2 teams - I know they only had one each but it would likely have been 6 if it was played now.

    I was only 2 in 1976 so wasn't at that one......maybe people were talking about that game and my young over active imagination assumed they meant it was happening there and then!

  • Goals in the 28th, 31st, 33rd and 35th minutes.

    Gutted if you went for a dump in the 27th.........
  • As usual the Programme can be seen here
