Blue Is The Colour

Blue is the Colour – Bernard Kelly Print



Product Description

Picking Sides is a series of paintings featuring  some of the teams, players and managers who’ve left their mark on the history of the English game.

Considered by many to be flamboyant, champagne Charlies, this Chelsea side certainly proved they weren’t Southern softies when they took on Leeds United in the 1970 FA Cup. After a 2-2 draw at Wembley the replay at Old Trafford went down as one  the most notorious in FA Cup history.  The action was reassessed in 1997 and if the modern rules were applied  it was worked out that there would have six red cards and 20 yellow! In between the kicking and chopping Mick Jones opened the scoring for Leeds but Peter Osgood equalised which, not only took the game to extra time again, but meant Osgood had scored in every round. David Webb eventually scored the winner and the FA cup was on its way up the Kings Road. The following year Chelsea beat Real Madrid to win the European Cup Winners’ Cup.

Artist Bernard Kelly’s work has featured on numerous Football club websites, TV stations as well as having exhibitions sponsorship by The PFA

The print is available in A4, either framed or unframed, and in original full size (42 x 59.4 cm) in a high quality sleek black frame.
