About me

How I came to support West Ham

It's in the blood.

My best West Ham memory

The 1975 FA Cup victory. Seeing the all kinds of claret and blue associated stuff being put in the shop and home windows. The anticipation of the build up on the day, special Cup Final day editions of Grandstand and World Of Sport. Watching the game on telly transfixed. Cursing my older brother for not taking me with him to Wembley. The unbelievable joy of seeing Billy Bonds lifting that wonderful trophy, then after watching the lap of honour rushing out to reenact the game with the other kids.
