The BBC Needs You! Going To The Game And Want To Tell All?

Well, the final countdown has begun, everyone who is anyone in media wants a piece of the Boleyn pie (and mash!), including our old pals at the Beeb. Although this message is meant for Orgers, it applies to anyone who lives and breathes West Ham. The Victoria Derbyshire TV programme would dearly like to speak via Skype, or in person at their central london studio, to anyone who attends tonight's match about the match itself but also about the impact of leaving the Boleyn, you know the type of thing, the hopes, the fears and the memories, stories from the past etc.

Bye Bye Boleyn

Today for many marks the end of a great romance, a love affair of history, comradeship, allegiance and pride, an affair of the heart and the mind, the mistress and the wife combined. After tonight the smell of the burgers, the mad traffic, the crowded pubs and off licences keen to oil the wheels of fans making their way to the Old Lady that is the Boleyn Ground, continuously and annoyingly referred to as Upton Park by lazy journalists and commentators, will be no more.

If You Are Not One Of Us You Won't Understand

A house is merely bricks and mortar, it is the people who make it a home! as the old saying goes and we are moving shortly from our private residence to our private (yet shared) let. I was born on Feb 23rd 1960 just a few short years before we won our first FA Cup, dazzled Europe and supplied arguably the 3 most important Lions for the English national team to date. I was born in the old Forest Gate Hospital and was brought up in Plaistow in Dacre Road so in effect pretty damn near The Boleyn.

Randolph To The Rescue To Keeps Hammers Euro Hopes Alive

Normally when the number one goalkeeper is injured at a high profile Barclays Premier League football club there is much talk of defensive crisis, but West Ham United are extremely fortunate to have Ireland International keeper Darren Randolph to fill the void by the calf injury sustained by Adrian San Miguel that will rule him out for the rest of the season and more.

Unbelieve A Bubble! Boleyn Travesty England v Germany Rio Grr

Last games at the old lady Boleyn Stadium were supposed to be special events, 'the final countdown' as it were, but today's turgid entertainment that West Ham fans were asked to cough up £20-30 for was an acute embarrassment, this was gnome towers at it's absolute cringing worst!
