Sadly public toilets are a thing of the past. There used to be good ones at the Campbell Street end of the Esplanade but they are long gone. Always first to go when councils make cuts.

No idea what you're meant to do now.

Chelsea return to Champions League action under Jose Mourhino when they play Basel on Wednesday. This week 45 years ago, the Blues were competing on the European stage against Morton.

The Greenock club were taking part in their first, and to date only, foray into Europe after a sixth-placed finish in the First Division had won them a place in the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

The draw for the competition took place in Copenhagen, so it was fitting that Morton’s first-ever goal in Europe was scored by a Dane.

Borge Thorup didn’t hit the net until his side were six goals behind, but it sparked a comeback that caused a period of panic for the boys from the King’s Road.

He recalls: “We started the first leg quite well at Stamford Bridge, but the tie was really lost when they scored two goals in two minutes before half-time.

“They got another three goals in the second half to win 5-0.

“Chelsea had some outstanding players like Charlie Cooke, Bobby Tambling and Peter Osgood.

“We had really talented front players, too, in Joe Harper, Tony Taylor, Joe Mason and Willie Allan but nothing went for us in front of goal.”

Morton manager Hal Stewart decided to change his plan of attack for the return leg at Cappielow.

Although listed as No 2, Borge played at centre-forward.

He goes on: “Hal would play me in different positions. He used to tell us: ‘Keep the ball high in the air, that way the other team can’t get it.’

“In the home game, Chelsea went further ahead right at the start of the match. Then I headed an equaliser after five minutes before Joe Mason and Tony Taylor scored to put us 3-1 up on the night.

“We hit the post, had one cleared off the line and ended up losing the match 4-3. But it was a night I’ll never forget.”

Borge came to Scotland in 1966 from Danish side Bronshoj.

He says: “I was fed up getting up at six in the morning to work, and having to train at night. Playing professional football full-time meant training in the morning and then playing golf in the afternoon.

“I found things very different. Britain seemed 20 years behind Denmark at that time. I was used to central heating, but in Scotland I only had a little electric fire. But I loved playing for Morton and we had a great group of players.”

In 1969 Borge was sold to Crystal Palace, and his only first-team game in two seasons came against Chelsea.

“I was unlucky because I had my cartilage removed after two months at Palace,” he says. “Then at the start of the next season, I had my arm broken by Clyde Best of West Ham.”

Borge returned for a second stint with Morton, a short spell with Clydebank and then three years back in Denmark.

Now 69, he lives in Dunoon where for 26 years he worked on the Western Ferries.

Used to blether with Borge regularly on the way over and back. Very down to earth.

Some great posts from newcomer Spike since he joined. Just need Admin to teach him how to add pics and there will be no stopping him.
