Blue is the Colour of Alan Hudson's Cardigan

Poor old Alan Hudson - is it little wonder he ended up traipsing destitute into the Conservative Club on the Kings Road in the new millennium when he spent the best part of the last one dressed like this?

Great shot of the real Chelsea squad about to hit number 5 in March 1972 with the legendary ditty "Blue is the Colour", produced sadly for their League Cup Final appearance against Stoke (lost 2-1!). Note Eddie McCreadie's magic glasses (ex Elton John), Paddy Mulligan trying desperately to keep up with the words, and Ossie's rounded collars on his shirt (he was humorously rumoured to be pulling Raquel Welsh at the time).

Name the person second from the right at the front.
