65 years old......this season will be emotional one for me
one son is trevor(brooking) william(bonds) alan(devonshire).....and my youngest antony(cottee) francis(mcavennie)... :)
Probably never owned a current shirt...always year or 2 behind...but maybe THIS season.....like the away one......always good to wear on holidays...my fave was the 1980 season white with c&b trims....Cup Final year...I had an offy in North London...surrounded by Arsenal supporters ...played Bubbles on a record player non-stop all day......my whole family in shop that night dressed in WHU gear...even 2 year old....'welcoming' Goonies on their way back from Wembley........In the Birkirkara prog : a pic of the coach bringing players with the Cup Winners Cup......I saw it go by at Whitechapel........Later I took my children to East Ham Town Hall...in 1975 and 1980........Now theyve got kids of their own.....and i'm taking my grandson to his first match v Werder Bremen.......and maybe this time next year...to the Olympic Stadium..........there'll be more bubbles than at the nearby Aquatic Centre.....See - now youve started me off.........an emotional season !!!!


How I came to support West Ham

taken by my brother when i was nine........remember standing on steps of the old chicken run.....swaying as we all sang Bubbles.....When i'm up in the seats I still sway...but no-one joins in :)


My best West Ham memory

winning finals.......but also one night in the league cup....beating 2nd in the table Leeds United 7-0.......


The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

Final(except penalties) v Liverpool 2006
