Classic goal: Drogba vs Everton (2007)

Here's one for you: the fantastic finish by Didier Drogba against Everton and Goodison Park in 2007. A brilliant example of the big Ivorian's ability to hold up the ball, turn and shoot from distance. Sublime.

Classic goal: Goldbaek vs Tottenham Hotspur (1999)

This is the first in a series of classic goals from vintage Chelsea. To get us going, it's that 30 yard stunner from our 'Great Dane' Bjarne Goldbaek, at White Hart Lane, when we were trailing 2-1. Ian Walker never stood a chance. Quite fantastic.

From the archives: pre-Milk Cup broadcast 1984

A real nostalgic trip down memory lane for me personally and Chelsea fans all over: it was 1984 and Chelsea had been drawn away to Millwall in the (then) Milk Cup. Media suggestions were that it would be 'World War III' on the terraces and London Weekend Television's 'Six O'Clock Show' despatched resident Millwall fan, and roving report, Danny Baker to sort out the men from the boys... oh, and my brother and I were in it!
