CHELSEA NEWS With a Stamford Bridge matchday upon us, the prelude to the action continues with a look at past West Brom encounters and this afternoon’s meeting. Club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton supply the words… WE HAVE HISTORY Last season’s draw ended our 100 per cent home record against the West Bromwich Albion in the Barclays Premier League. Never the less Chelsea are looking to extend our unbeaten home run against them to 14 games in all competitions. The Throstles’ last win against the Blues at Stamford Bridge was in November 1983 in the League Cup third round. The 13-game run since consists of 11 wins and two draws. Chelsea’s biggest victory over Albion came in early December 1960 towards the end of Ted Drake’s tenure. This was a remarkably young Blues side, featuring two 17-year-olds, Allan Harris and Terry Venables, Peter Bonetti and Bobby Tambling, both 19, and the unstoppable Jimmy Greaves, just a year their senior. Greaves (pictured below) ended the day ...

Rooney scores in England win Wayne Rooney crowns his 100th cap with a goal as England fight back from 1-0 down to defeat Slovenia at Wembley. 15 November 2014 Wayne Rooney helped England survive a scare against Slovenia on his 100th international appearance as they came from behind to make it four wins from four in the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign. Rooney was presented with a golden cap by England and Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton before kick-off in honour of his landmark but underdogs Slovenia threatened to spoil the celebrations when Jordan Henderson's own goal gave them the lead just before the hour. England's captain quickly restored order with his 44th goal for his country from the penalty spot, putting him joint-third with Jimmy Greaves in the all-time standings and moving him to within five of Charlton's record. With Slovenia's resistance finally broken, Danny Welbeck struck twice to bring his tally to an impressive five goals in qualifying. The Wembley surface was the subject of muc ...

ON THIS DAY: West Ham United welcomed Tottenham Hotspur to the Boleyn Ground on 17 October 1970 - and it turned out to be quite an afternoon. Tommy Taylor made his Hammers debut in front of a record league crowd of 42,322 as the two London rivals drew 2-2 in a thrilling game. Former Spurs striker Jimmy Greaves and Peter Eustace were on target as West Ham twice came from behind to grab a point.
Jimmy Greaves' games to goal ratio is miles better than Rooney's. I'd rather have Peter Crouch beat his record, honestly.
The top stories and transfer rumours from the back pages of Thursday's national newspapers. DAILY STAR CONCACAF president Jeremy Webb feels Jose Mourinho is out of touch for thinking there is no racism in football. Robert Huth is staggered that England coach Roy Hodgson continues to ignore the claims of Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross. Bringing more NFL games to Wembley could see England return to their nomadic ways, with the Football Association considering using other stadia for international matches. Fabio Borini will snub a move away from Liverpool in January with the club not interested in loaning him out again.

Odd Man Out: Franz Beckenbauer, Paolo Maldini and Jimmy Greaves are in our XI, but who is the misfit?
Tottenham fans please read this ... Carl ... Manchester United’s new boss Louis Van Gaal has admitted that he was “very close” to completing a deal to become the manager of Tottenham, and he has spoken of his love for the North London club. The Dutchman has agreed to become David Moyes’ successor at Old Trafford, but he insisted the prospect of managing at White Hart Lane was a tantalising one, as he supported Spurs when growing up. Van Gaal has spoken of his admiration of Spurs and Jimmy Greaves.

Well I've been thinking, if we had a time machine to go and get the greatest England football team together for the World Cup, who would be in yours, here's mine .IF ONLY EH Gordon Banks / David Seaman / Peter Shilton Bobby Moore / Terry Butcher / Glen Johnson / Jolean Westcott / Jack Charlton / Des Walker / Tony Adams / David Beckham / Stevie Gerrard / Glen Hoddle / Theo Walcott / Colin Bell / Paul Scholes / Martin Peters / David Platt / Geoff Hurst / Gary Lineker / Alan Shearer / Bobby Charlton / Jimmy Greaves
Exactly why does Steven Gerrard "deserve" to win the Title? Great players like Jimmy Greaves, Bobby Moore, Liam Brady & Zola didn't either.
Spurs v Sunderland. An excellent "striker's goal" by Adebayor. Gary Lineker, Jimmy Greaves, Kevin Phillips eat your heart out
claiming Jimmy Greaves was only an average player & couldn’t hold a candle to Soldado?
Next week Sherwood will probably go after Jimmy Greaves.
