The King.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 His ashes are under the penalty spot
There, right in front of The Shed
Returned back to the place, so that likely as not
He’ll remain forever, in our hearts and our heads



Peter Osgood. The King Of Stamford Bridge

Even today, in these times of shallow here today, gone tomorrow, gimme, gimme, p.r’d global branded mega stars, they (the fans) still sing his name, along with that of Gian-Franco Zola, at all our home games!

That to me is …real adulation.

And tells me that fans can’t be fooled, they know the genuine article when they see it and it means a lot to them.
