Chelsea Celebrate ‘Osgood Day’ At Stamford Bridge

Ossie and Webb - ECWC Final 1971

Chelsea FC along with Chelsea TV (CTV) has announced that today (Friday 1st October) will be dedicated to The King Of Stamford Bridge, Peter Osgood, and will be known as “Osgood Day

CTV will be running different and varied shows during the day in honour of our former striker and will see past players like Charlie Cooke, David Webb, Peter Bonetti and Ron Harris to name but four who will be making guest appearances during the day.

The day will culminate with invited guests and CTV attending the unveiling of the Peter Osgood statue outside the West Stand in the late afternoon, (supporters can view the statue in person from Saturday 2nd). This will be followed on CTV by ‘Friday Night Live’ at 7pm with Tommy Docherty and hosted by Jonny Gould.

The Official Website will have an interview with sculptor, Phillip Jackson and will be hearing from  Peter’s wife Lynne as well as Elaine Hutchinson, wife of Ossie’s former strike partner, Ian.

As a supporter who started following Chelsea in the late 60’s – early 70’s, ‘Osgood Day’ will have a special meaning to myself and the many other Chelsea fans that were there on the terraces in the Shed during that period.

Charlie Cooke was always my hero, but ‘Ossie’ wasn’t far behind. I will always remember the warm welcome he always gave to supporters whenever asked for a picture or autograph. He gave me so many special memories that will stay with me always and Peter Osgood will always be……“The King of Stamford Bridge”

Let’s all raise a glass to ‘The King’ on this special day.

Out Of The Shed Came A Rising Young Star
Scoring Goals Past Pat Jennings From Near And From Far
And Chelsea Won Like We All Knew They Would
And The Star Of That Great Team Was PETER OSGOOD

OSGOOD
BORN IS KING OF STAMFORD BRIDGE!

  1. I was 8 years old in 1969 when I first started watching and playing football and came across the name Peter Osgood playing for a team I’m blue – my favourite colour! From that moment my life changed as that was the start of my love affair with Chelsea and with my surname also being Osgood there was only one team I could support and one player I would idolise!
    I am a lucky man as he was an absolute legend and he was the sole reason I still have a season ticket in gate 17 of MHU over 40 happy years later.
    RIP Ossie!
