  • NUMBER 7 – CHELSEA VS LEEDS UNITED – 1970 FA CUP FINAL REPLAY

After a 2-2 draw in the first attempt, Chelsea took another crack at besting Leeds United to the 1970 FA Cup, which still stands as the second highest UK audience for a sports broadcast (sitting just behind the 1966 World Cup final) Leeds and Chelsea were two of England’s top teams that season, having finished 2nd and 3rd respectively in the then First Division. The match was considered by many as a clash in footballing contrasts: Chelsea were regarded as “flamboyant southerners” whereas Leeds were seen as “uncompromising northerners” Neither had won the FA Cup before, but both had recently been runners-up, Leeds in 1965 and Chelsea in 1967. When you look at present day, and where Chelsea and Leeds currently sit, the gap is quite clear; and this day may well have contributed to that, even if it was so long ago, and without a doubt is one the older Proper Chels, will remember.
