West Ham Fans
Was sat in a craft brewery beer garden on Friday afternoon and my Fiance and myself got chatting to this man and his Son. The Father was from Watford. Anyway as we got chatting more, I asked if he was a Watford supporter, he replied that he looked out for their results, but he actually is a West Ham supporter. Cue one dumbfounded Fiance and a lengthy chat about The Hammers. Turns out, his Uncle played for us in the late 50's and stayed in the same accommodation as Malcolm Allison.

Saturday, went to Stratford upon Avon. My lady and myself were again sat in a beer garden and a family opposite us on another table were chatting away, I thought to myself, they aren't locals, got chatting with them and they were from Plaistow but had moved to Stratford due to work. All three were Hammers Fans, cue my once again dumbfounded Fiance and a great chat about The Hammers.

Absolutely love our passionate Fans.

We really are something else.

"Also remember walking down a rain-sodden street in Phuket in the mid/late 90's.
Saw a young local on the other side of the road out of the corner of my eye, wildly gesticulating at me.
When I looked at him, he pointed at me (or rather my old hooped away shirt) and with a massive grin on his face shouted 'Nonce. Nonce'.

I remember being in Orlando back in the late 90's and there at least four of us in Hammers shirts queuing up for The Back to the Future ride!

I was seeing someone in a record company in the basement of the PWL offices in Borough around ‘96 and there was a huge WHU flag on the wall. I was introduced to the boss and owner of the flag. His name was Andy Swallow.

Yes I appreciate that was too much information for you to handle in one go Twundle. Then again, it won’t be of any use to you.

This thread is about West Ham fans, Maggot & Pickled.

Not sure how you chatting to an Everton supporter in a bar you probably regularly get pissed up in, is any relevance?

The Harbour Bar in Kassiopi, Georgios is a Greek hammer and always makes sure our games are on the big screen.

Re: West Ham Fans
The place to watch games when in Warsaw is Legends. Graham, the proprietor, is really alright; he will alway make sure you get a screen so don't be too hard on him for being an Everton supporter ;)

Re: West Ham Fans
Pee Wee, that is funny. Never thought of that. Maybe that's why we are only engaged. Poor girl has to put up with alot with me, especially when we meet fellow Hammers fans. It doesn't happen deliberately, it just seems to happen alot lately.

Isolated. The Oswestry pub full of hammers fans watching the Brighton game.

Re: West Ham Fans
My old man lived in Turkey for a few years and found a local bar that showed premier league games. Him and the English bar owner became good mates and eventually discovered that the bloke used to sit two rows behind and four seats along in the seats on the old chicken run. The old man described him to me and me to him and we both remember nodding hello to eachother many times.

Small world and all that.

Re: West Ham Fans
Following the passing of Lady Blagg back in 2018, I like to get away on anniversary days (wedding, birthday, death & funeral) as it helps me cope.

I was in Budapest a few weeks after Prague and though I don't normally travel kitted up, I'd just bought a new 'Prague Winners' polo shirt and I was amazed at the number of people - and I'm talking locals - who noticed it, made a comment or just came up to me wanting to talk West Ham and football and European competitions. On the actual anniversary of my wife's passing, I was in the City Centre, just going to the Cathedral to light a candle. I was feeling pretty weighed down and was crossing the road and a car stopped for me. I put my hand up to acknowledge them stopping, was halfway across when the driver and his passenger leaned out the window and gave me the crossed arms and a shout of 'IRONNNS'. It was obvious they weren't from Stratford way either. It made me laugh and really broke my mood.

Have you considered taking an interest in your girl rather than having to look for strangers that you prefer the company of?

Re: West Ham Fans
Shortly after my youngest was born.i.took.a part time job in Morrisons and on the tills one day this bloke came to my till in a Hammers shirt. We did the crossed Hammers thing and chatted and say hello if we saw eachother around the area. Anyway some years later I.went in to do care for a lady who was on end of life and when I went into the house there was West Ham stuff everywhere. The lady's husband was from.Stratford and the bloke in the Hammers shirt I'd met all.that time ago turned up.while I was there....he was their son.

Lovely family.

Re: West Ham Fans
Wish I could remember exactly were it was, it wat was called, but it was near Loch Ness, on one of the roads with Tomich on it, and it was not much more than a large corrugated iron shack.

But it served food and drink, so it counted as a proper pub, and it was covered in West Ham memorabilia - framed programs from the 1950, teddy bears with West Ham scarves, ancient footballs...

Unfortunately, the landlord wasn't there, and the bar staff couldn't enlighten us as to what motivated the great man's choice of decor, apart from the obvious fact he was a West Ham fan

Unfortun

Fair play I suppose. Never really thought of your comments in that way
