Up for the Cup ?

Stamford Bridge
So after extra-time The Blues march on to Wembley in April with a Semi-Final against Southampton now newly managed by former Chelsea striker Mark Hughes. He was supposed to appear on Chelsea TV last week for the Barcelona game but decided to take a new job instead.

On the BBC tv coverage yesterday Chelsea Legend Petr Cech was a pundit and called a Chelsea win after extra-time over Leicester City. So hoping he returns for the semi.

Congrats to Blues Under-18s for winning the Premier League Cup with 2 -0 win over Spurs and the Ladies won their Cup Qtr-Final with a 3-0 win away to Liverpool, next up Man City or Sunderland !

Don't forget to check out my latest mini-podcast on Spreaker ( listed right ).

Keep it Blue !

Visit today to Cemetery & Bridge

Next to Stamford Bridge

*** ***
Following on from yesterday's post about CST Tour tomorrow, I visited today to check up and take some photos below - bottom right is former Chelsea boss Bobby Campbell's grave may not be part of the Rick's tour. When it comes to laying the wreath at the Mears' grave there maybe a problem for group standings ( go to my Twitter stream for photo ).

Also visited the Bridge for some photos to use for my podcast.
Till the next one !

Brompton Cemetery - CFC 113th Birthday

Sunny afternoon at the Bridge
******
"This Saturday, 10th March, marks the 113th anniversary of the founding of Chelsea Football Club. To mark the occasion, Chelsea Supporters Trust has organised a guided tour of Chelsea F.C. related graves with club historian Rick Glanvill, followed by wreath laying at the Mears family memorial." - CST   

Been part of this CST project/crew for a few years, there is now a new leaflet guide to download on the club website.
