TOMMY DOCHERTY (1928-2020)

A final kick in the wotsits from the year 2020 was the sad news of the passing of Tommy Docherty.

The media will lead that he was Man Utd's manager, but it was in the Swinging Sixties, down on the King's Road, that he made his name as the brilliant young manager of Chelsea.
The Doc made the club into a super-fashionable vibrant team full of young players, playing in one of the coolest kits around. 
One of my biggest regrets as a Blue, is not having seen that team of the 60s play.
The Chelsea website have an excellent write-up of his career at the Bridge.
