About me

Lived outside London since 1996 in Canada, the US and Singapore, now back in New York. The homing signal is definitely on, now though, especially on Saturdays!

How I came to support West Ham

Typhoo Tea promotion in the 1960s - collect packet tops and send for a picture of a footballer. I wanted Geoff Hurst but they had run out of him so they sent a picture of Bobby More instead. My fate as a Hammers supporter was sealed so my dad and brother used to take me as a small boy from our home in North London to games.

My best West Ham memory

Championship play-off final, closely followed by the 1980 FA cup

The best West Ham game I’ve ever seen

Last game at Upton Park v Man Utd
