A place is available for a Chelsea great to join many others whose careers at the club are celebrated on the Shed Wall at Stamford Bridge. A fans’ vote is open to decide which former player is chosen but it closes on Friday…
On its own, the Shed Wall at the southern end of Stamford Bridge is an important piece of Chelsea history.
It is a section of the stadium site which dates all the way back to soon after the famous football ground was opened and although no longer part of the large standing terrace for supporters it once was, it is nowadays an impressive boundary alongside a busy walking thoroughfare on both matchdays and non-matchdays.
And in recent years the Shed Wall comes with added history! Along its length a collection of all-time greats in the Chelsea story are celebrated, with images, biographies, honours and quotes, and even QR codes which allow you to find out more. Not a day goes past without hundreds of people stopping to look or have their photos taken next to one of their favourites.
Peter Bonetti, Petr Cech, Ashley Cole, Marcel Desailly, Kerry Dixon, Didier Drogba, Ron Harris, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Branislav Ivanovic, Frank Lampard, Peter Osgood, John Terry, Gianluca Vialli, Ray Wilkins, Dennis Wise and Gianfranco Zola are the names already on there, and the good news is there is room for one more.
