pitta bread

Chelsea F.C. ~ Pitta Osgood

Introduction: Known as Ossie, the King of Stamford Bridge. Peter Leslie Osgood (20th February 1947 – 1 March 2006) was an English footballer who was particularly active during the 1960s and 1970s. He was signed by Chelsea and debuted for them on the 16th December 1964. He played for Chelsea 279 times scoring 103 goals , and was also capped four times by England in the early 1970s, it should have been more but his “playboy” lifestyle was unpalatable to Alf Ramsey.
