WHO Poll
Q: 2020/2021 Where will we finish up this season?
a. Top Four, Champions League here we come
b. 5th-7th Europa League is well within our grasp
c. 8th to 14th anywhere in mid table is about right
d. We're in a dog fight before a ball has been kicked and we'll do well to finish 17th or just above
e. GSB have derailed our season before a ball has been kicked, the Championship beckons

Bobby Moore
Haven't seen a thread on the first few pages so apologies if I'm going over old ground. Is anyone going along to the Boleyn tomorrow to tie a scarf to the gates / lay some flowers seeing this will be the last time we commerate his death at Upton Park?

I don’t wear football shirts but today went out for lunch down here in Devon with a replica Bobby Moore debut shirt and met another iron in the pub.

Re: Bobby Moore
I was at that game and there was a lot more than 24,000.
One of the reasons for that was the two for one brigade and to keep the official count down so that the greedy f.a didn't get their cut.

Well I went that night to his testimonial, and it was a cracking game.
But one reason why the crowd was only 24,000, which probably included the best part of 5,000 jocks, was that Esso were 'sponsoring' the game and they set the ticket prices, most of which were 30 - 50% higher than league games.

I also suspect that some were put off by the thought of thousands of pissed up Jocks being there.

Re: Bobby Moore
Does anyone know who wrote this poem?
I've heard it sung acapella on youtube and its lovely.......

We won the cup in '64 beat Preston 3 to 2,
with goals from Johnny Sissons, Ronnie Boyce and Geoff Hurst too, and Bobby Moore, he ran the show until the game was won.
A Barking boy of 19 years, the king had just begun

Cup winner's cup in '65, to Wembley once again.
His fine blonde hair was everywhere as Bobby ran the game.
Two goals from Alan Sealey brought the cup to E13 and we drank a toast to all the boys and Bobby Moore, the King

Then in 1966 the country made the call.
Sir Alf, he rang Ron Greenwood, said" Ron i need them all"
Ron said " Dont be greedy, i'll only give you three, Mooro, Hurst and Peters, get down to Wembley.

Martin Peters got a goal and Geoffrey Hurst got three and Bobby was the Captain when we beat West Germany.
Bobby was the General, the leader of the team when West Ham won the World Cup and England reigned supreme.

His memory will never fade, the greatest in the land.
Now Bobby Moore's in heaven, he sits at Gods right hand
The greatest Number 6 the football world has ever seen and thats how we'll remember him,

Bobby Moore ...the King

Brings a tear to your eye:


Lovely video.

You cunt LJ.

Especially as I've done a bottle of JD and that my old man died around the same age...which was way too fucking young.

To think it was 23 years since I was there at the gates to pay my respect is surreal.

RIP Dad, Bob, old Son.
