been through a lot in my life... but the one constant is West HamBorn: 1956
How I came to support West Ham
My Dad and Uncle dragged brother and me to the Boleyn... we queued all the way around the ground for hours ... when it came to our turn our little hands reached up to buy 2 1964 cup final tickets each which my dad promptly took off us... to share with his mates no doubt... the car was somehow covered in claret and blue with a cut out FA cup affixed to the roof....
First match of the next season he took me and I spent the match being passed from shoulder to shoulder in the chicken run...hooked from that moment onwards...
My best West Ham memory
Too many... but here goes...Eintracht..... 80 Final... world cup winners coming on the pitch first at start of 66 season... pop Robson goal from right wing... psycho 4 vs Spuds... the 8 goal Newcastle game... cottee mac partnership. .
