Chelsea have always done things differently. Their beginnings were certainly unusual;the club had a ground before they were formed, and were elected to the Football League without even playing a match. Success, though, wasn't so easy to obtain and 1955's league title was the club's first major honour. 1970 witnessed more silverware in the form of the FA Cup and the European Cup-Winners Cup followed a year later. But the 'golden era' was short-lived and by 1975 the 'twilight years' had begun with the club struggling both on and off the pitch. Fact:Stamford Bridge was originally offered to Fulham to play there but they declined the chance and so Chelsea took the chance instead.
