Always Free To Place a Hit On Someone
Chelsea football club would not have come into being without the construction of their Stamford Bridge ground. Stamford Bridge was built in 1877 as an athletics track. Gus Mears was a football enthusiast and had purchased the land. He realised that at the turn of the century London failed to provide a single team to the Football League First Division. Mears had spotted the potential for a football club to play at an old athletics ground at Stamford Bridge.
Due to unforeseen problems and a lucrative offer for the land Mears was on the verge of selling up and abandoning his sporting project. Colleague Frederick Parker canada goose chateau noir homme , an enthusiastic supporter of the football stadium project attempted to dissuade him but was told he was wasting his time. In a bizarre turn of events, Parker persuaded Mears to change his mind due to his reaction after being bitten by Mears dog. Despite drawing blood and causing great pain it only drew an amused reaction from Parker.
Chelsea were not in the original plan though. Due to a financial disagreement nearby Fulham Football Club, who were already in existence, declined an offer to abandon the less grand Craven Cottage and move into Stamford Bridge. So in contrast to the history of so many clubs, Mears decided to build a team for a stadium, rather than the other way round. On March 14th 1905 Chelsea Football Club was established, after rejecting several other proposed names canada goose hybridge lite femme noir , including Stamford Bridge FC, Kensington FC and London FC.
