Chelsea History : FOUNDATION INSTALLED/SET COMPLETE

Unlikely Heroes : MEARS;BATES;ABRAMOVICH;DRAKE;SEXTON;DI MATTEO;?

The architechts of Chelsea success are not names that trip of the tongue like Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Christopher Wren or even Archibald Leitch the famous football stadium designer of the early 20th Century. They are not great and revered football names like Herbert Chapman, Stan Cullis, Matt Busby, Bill Shankly, Brian Clough or the modern holy trinity of Ferguson, Guardiola or even ex-Chelsea man, José Mourinho.

No, these are the names set in the King’s Road Boulevard much like the Hollywood Walk of Fame in downtown L.A. that we lovers of our great club must walk on as we follow our chosen team, stepping on the cracks rather than the tiles of the hallowed pavement and the very foundations of our now completed history.
