    Match seen at the start of the clip was played at Wembley on 11 April 1970. Seen at 00:04 is a shot by Peter Houseman that Leeds keeper Gary Sprake fumbles and allows to roll over the line.

    Amongst the Chelsea players seen singing in the studio are John Hollins and David Webb, then later on Peter Houseman, Ron Harris and John Dempsey. Then at 01:13 Peter Osgood is seen.

    At 02:23 we see Chelsea's equalising goal for 2-2, a header from Ian Hutchinson.

    "Cataloguer's Note: 'Blue Is The Colour' was the team song for Chelsea's 1970 FA (Football Association) Cup final" - although the early footage for this clip is from 1970, the recording of "Blue is the Colour" seen here was for Chelsea's appearance in the 1972 League Cup Final.

    Perhaps the clip's date of 1970 should also be changed?

    This was written and recorded for the 1972 League Cup Final. The action clips used are from the 1970 Cup Final but they have been edited into to the shots of the players singing.

    The record was issued on the Penny Farthing Records label on 26th February 1972 and reached number 5 in the charts in March 1972. The video above was used for Top of the Pops.

    So in reference to the action the date of 1970 is correct but the song is from early 1972.
