“Keep the Bubbles Blowing”

A piece of History disappears tonight the “Hammers”, West Ham Football Club will no longer play at Upton Park and “The Boleyn Ground”.  The Club was founded in 1895 as Thames Ironworks and reformed in 1900 as West Ham United.  In 1904 they first played at “The Boleyn Ground”.

British Football I refer to, the ground in the heart of the East End of London, the famous West Ham.  The Town of West Ham is centered around the ground  and the people live the Football Club, it is sad to see this end.

When England Won the World Cup, all those long years ago, against Germany, oh how we cheered Bobby Moore and nearly lifted the roof off Wembley with the roars that went up.  So many of the England Squad were from West Ham Club, that formed the Victory Squad.

Now sadly tonight no more “The Boleyn Ground”, they are moving to The Olympic Park.  It won’t be the same again, the “Hammers” must go on, the singing of their song “For I’m forever blowing bubbles” ringing in the air.

How I regret the times I was asked to go and watch The Hammers in the Manager’s Box, I turned it down every time now I regret I never saw the mainly England Squad that lifted The World Cup, I doubt I will ever see England lift the Cup in my lifetime.

So “Hammers” keep going and do us proud, I’ll always be a Fan, and keep those “Bubbles Blowing”.

 

BREAKING NEWS:   THE FINAL MATCH THAT WEST HAM HAVE PLAYED AT THE BOLEYN STADIUM AND IN ONE OF THE BEST FOOTBALL GAMES I HAVE SEEN FOR A LONG TIME, WELL YOU COULD NOT MAKE IT UP.  WEST HAM BEAT MANCHESTER UNITED BY 3-2.  IT WAS THRILLING AND I SHALL REMEMBER IT FOR A LONG TIME.  WELL DONE “THE HAMMERS”

    1. Thanks Cheryl. I have always loved West Ham. Because of circumstances when my Mother lost a Son, when I was expected she had to deliver me in the Maternity Hospital in the East End, which makes me a Cockney by Birth, I was actually born within the Sounds of Bow Bells, and West Ham is the East End, hence my support of them. I admire West Ham because when England Won the World Cup all those years ago, and will never win again, the majority of the Team came from West Ham, and the Captain was the lovely Bobby Moore. One final thing is our neighbour had been the Landlord of the famous Pub “The Boleyn” that’s where my invites came from, all the squad would drink in his pub. Glad you enjoyed it.
