Jose Mourinho's side have had quite a year, leading from the front all season and picking up the League Cup along the way!
And what better way to celebrate than by having a look at some of my history laden collages of West London's finest!
|Chelsea collage from my very popular Retro Football range. |
It features Blues legend Peter Osgood with many programmes, badges and cards.
|Chelsea cigarette and trade card bonanza here!! |
Includes past greats such as Jack Harrow, George Mills, Roy Bentley, Peter Bonetti and Charlie Cooke.
On a sadder note, my best wishes go to ex-Blue Jimmy Greaves, who suffered a severe stroke at the weekend.
It is often forgotten that Jimmy started his amazing career at Chelsea, scoring on his debut in 1957. He was top scorer in each of his four seasons at Stamford Bridge, before his infamous transfer to AC Milan in 1961.
His 43 goals, including 41 in the League, in 1960/61 remains a Chelsea club record unlikely to be beaten.
GET WELL SOON GREAVSIE.
