They say that Chelsea ain’t got no history but there were the odd moment of glory for the Blues long before they were bankrolled by Russian billionaires.
One man who provided more than most was the late Peter Osgood, who would have been 68 today. The homegrown Chelsea legend spend a decade at Stamford Bridge, scoring 150 goals in 380 appearances.
Osgood was a key member of the team that won the FA Cup against Leeds in 1970 and the European Cup Winners’ Cup against Real Madrid in 1971. Sadly, he passed away in 2006 aged 59. Here’s the great man in action, scoring the goal of the season in 1972-73 against Arsenal.
