About me

40 something, slightly exiled down on the south coast. Many happy memories of Upton Park and following the team around the country.


How I came to support West Ham

Happened to be in the Wembley area in August 1975 on charity shield day aged 6 with family. Came across a guy selling selling rosettes in the street. I asked for a West Ham one. There was no looking back from then.


My best West Ham memory

1980 cup final
Sat in east stand and being in line with Paolo Di Canio as he hit 'that' shot against Wimbledon.


The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

Ipswich play off semi final. Thought the roof was going to come off. Incredible atmosphere.
