Great photo. Hope they show how much they miss it by playing out their skin when they come back!

It's good to see. Dildo Bro's have chucked in a fair amount of their own wedge as well, I am quite impressed.

Not really too fussed about what Spurs are doing, their Chairman is a tycoon with other peoples money in my opinion, clearly lacking in empathy and most of my Spurs supporting mates are mortified at their situation.

Still my favourite player! The interview is basically a live/more up to date version of his book.

I had the pleasure of meeting him last year, I'm more regular in Rome for Lazio matches these days than I am at the OS in London, bumped into him while wearing a Lazio hoodie, finally got the picture with my footballing hero.

I will listen to all 45 mins of this later but why was he angry about the manner in which he left West Ham?

He said when we were relegated he would have signed any new contract just to keep playing and they wouldn’t offer it. The board wanted him out.

Ah yes, I seem to remember there were some odd decisions at that time.

There’s been Very many odd/mad decisions by West Ham boards for years. That was just one of them.

True, I suppose the first of many that occurred during my lifetime as a supporter was the disgraceful way they treated (Sir wink ) Bobby Moore.

Bit of a lockdown quiz for you Hammers fans .... clearing out a back bedroom here prior to some redecoration and in a box was a couple of WHU programmes ... FA Cup fourth round from 1975 and the final five years later.



Likewise this one ... perhaps one of the best days in the club's history.



Anyone want to have a guess at your starting 11s as printed in these matchday programmes?

I can but as I have the programs I’d be cheating.
