About me

Supporter since the 'Golden Age' when it was easy to idolise footballers and believe that success for the Hammers was just around the corner. Fortunate enough to have have attended 2 WHU FA Cup Final wins, a European Final and a couple of Championship Playoff Finals, but have lived through far too many relegation or close to relegation seasons. Miss the 'old days' at the Boleyn and the buzz as you made your way to the ground down ordinary roads past ordinary shops and stalls, but it was probably time to move on. Just wish we'd moved to a stadium that was designed for football.

How I came to support West Ham

Local lad and could walk to games. My uncle took me to my first ever game in 1964 and have been a fan ever since. Graduated from the South/North Bank to season ticket in the Chicken Run and now have a season ticket in the East Stand at Stratford.

My best West Ham memory

European nights in 1965 and 1976 and cup semi final victory against Everton at Elland Road.
