West Ham Till I Die


  • Born: 1959

How I came to support West Ham

Was taken to Upton Park in 66 by my Dad and saw us lose 3-2 to Everton. Hurst and Peters scored for us. Was hooked ever since. Loved Upton Park and the whole experience. Don’t like LS.

My best West Ham memory

Winning FA cup 1980. Great day and great day afterwards in front of East Ham town hall on Barking Road. Unbelievable celebration. Coming back on M1 after we beat Everton in FA second semi in 1980. Prague 2023 never thought I would see in my lifetime.

The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

Tricky one Eintracht Frankfurt, quarter final Highbury 75, 2nd semi final v Everton at Elland Road 1980. Closely followed by Den Haag home game.
