Football: The Sweeper - My Team Tim lovejoy Chelsea
Saturday 24 April 1999
"My dad used to sit and watch Chelsea on television and I just thought it was a manly thing to do. It was around 1970 and Chelsea were big at the time. I grew up in Middlesex and all my friends were Chelsea fans too. Because of lack of recent success my best memory is the 1997 FA Cup final. It was great that Di Matteo scored so early on, it meant it was a relaxing experience unlike most FA Cup finals. Although most of my heroes are the current side, who are a great bunch of lads, I still remember Joey Jones, Butch Wilkins and Mickey Thomas. I honestly believe we can win the League this year but if we don't, then a Champions' League place is a must."
