About me
Square_mini_whu_151_john_sissons_2__1_

Came to East London in mid 60's to study at a local uni. I'm now semi retired and still dabble in something called international reinsurance....those in the City will know what I mean.


How I came to support West Ham

My 4 years (as a student) in East London in the mid 60's converted me into a West Ham fan. The footy in those days was entertaining ala Ron Greenwood's style. Unfortunately, we were hopeless in defence so it's just as well that Sir Geoff was so prolific as a striker.

I'm now a season ticket holder in the West Stand together with my son.


My best West Ham memory

So many memories! West Ham beating Leeds in the League Cup 7 - 0 is difficult to forget!


The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

West Ham beat Sunderland 8 - 0 in League Cup with Sir Geoff scoring 6!
