Chelsea Away

Recommended Posts

Looking forward to the game. It's essentially a free hit, got nothing to lose.

Booked the train, last time I went was the rumbelows semi final, still remember the 12ft graffiti 'Rotherham die', which was on a wall as we came out. The mighty millers had beat them 6-1 and 4-0 a couple of seasons before.

That wasn't the last time we played them in the FA Cup, that was about 5 years earlier. We played them in the 5th round at home in 1999, lost 1-0 to a late Di Matteo goal.

Can't even remember that , bloody ell , remember the 1-3 replay though

Was at that game - there was a massive fight in the north stand. 

 

3-1 Chelsea after we’d been there and got a draw.

5 or 6 Chelsea lads in the North Stand, that made themselves known very loudly when they scored (Craig Burley IIRC) , nothing really happened and they got chucked out, a Wednesday fan got a bloodied nose and that was it, I was sat just behind it. 

 

Seems like I’ve a lifetime ago :duntmatter:

Flights booked.

I'm driving and taking my 7 year old boy, he'll be buzzing when he wakes in morning and I tell him we made it, he went to bed at half time 

Me and you along with 4k owls fans for that 3-0 win in a 17k crowd 1992 and a 2-0 win the year after. Me with your Grandad for the 6th round of the cup where we took 22K.

Represents an unbroken thread for the Family. Long may it continue.

Haha Brilliant....... I can remember him lobbing sweets over the fence on't Kop causing mayhem, a mix of youths throwing them back at him or scrapping over them pink coconut ones with liquorice in middle.  Bertie Basset and that Steve Ogrizovic goal are a couple of stand out memories as a youth on' t  Kop. 

Dont think well need a replay... cup magic and all that. UTO

 

 

When did he go?

 

we need him back!

Genuinely can’t remember that. Thought we lost to gillingham that year?

We lost to the Gills in Jan 2000 (so the following season).

Does anyone know how much we will get from progressing to the next round? 

Ive heard over £1 million as the game is televised? 

Decent payout for us if this is true!

Not sure how much but doesnt each club take 50%. Tbh as a nice guester and makes sense the money should go to the lower league side

40% of gate money at £30 and £15 is a tidy sum with over 40,000 attendance, add this to TV money and we should make a few bob.
