I loved the WH holy trinity as a skool-boy ( Moore, Peters, Hurst ) during the 66 world cup and supported the Hammers ever since (even though I am from the west country but Bristol never did it for me - or themselves). Used to go to WHU games when I was a student in London in the 70s - loved Trevor, Billy Bonds, the original Lampard, and many more between 1971-76. Watched the FA cup semi-final (replay?) vs Ipswich where we won 1-0 at the Fulham ground the year they went on the win the cup. Saw a mid-week game at Upton Park vs Man Utd when Pop Robson scored at least a couple for the iron in a big win. Most recently watched WH vs Cardiff in Wales a few years ago (0-2 win : Nolan and McCartney scored on their way back to the premiership)
How I came to support West Ham
World Cup antics of the Holy Trinity
My home town of Weston sounded like West Ham to an 11 year old
The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen
West Ham beating Man Utd in the League cup a couple of years ago was pretty impressive but I have to say Victory this season over Liverpool was sweeeet!
