Great game and atmosphere
Joe McLaughlin - good player

We had a great team as well and I always felt we were going to win at home... but they were very good that season

What a season it was.

Only a youngster I don't remember too much from that game.
But now it's been mentioned Dixon scored, also remember I was there.

Seem to remember we beat Man City 4-1 at home that season ?
One of my earliest memorys of watching Town.

That win over City was one season later (84-85)

Wasn't that the year we beat them 3-2 at Stamford Bridge after being 2-0 down with 15 mins to go?

I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,

I do find it a bit ironic that they are banging on about how well supported they were that season. I know that the IRA had bombed Harrods earlier that day, which would probably have taken a few thousand off the gate, but the attendance on that famous day at Stamford Bridge.....13151.

I think the Chelsea fans who bang on about that season (if they were really there!) bang on about it precisely because they were so badly supported in those days. Unlike the glory hunters who came years later when they had money.

Going to Grimsby "that day" in 1984 gives you a certificate of authenticity as Chelsea fan.

Another game that sticks out for me in that season was Town 3 Portsmouth 4

I wasn't even at that game as I was down south but remember score flashes coming through with us coming back equalising at the death and then from reports we went pushing for a win and lost it going for the 3 points

I just remember being bitterly disappointed that our push for promotion to the top flight showed the first signs of stuttering...more or less confirmed a month or so later when we lost away to the massive Sheff Weds

Nonetheless good days following Town....the anticipation and the optimism that we could maybe achieve something can't be beaten
