Video of the Day: West Ham United vs Stoke City, March 1983

The party’s over for West Ham United, but there is still one more match to play in the Premier League this weekend before they can shut up shop for the summer. This has been a successful season for the Irons, who will guarantee themselves a sixth placed finish in the table with a win, and might yet be able to snatch fifth place and a spot in next season’s Europa League should Manchester United fail to beat AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford at the same time. That party starts again in August, of course, when the club takes its...

West Ham United’s Eventful Farewell To Upton Boleyn Ground Park

A vast number of English football clubs, from some of the very biggest to some of the very smallest, have moved into new homes over the course of the last quarter of a century or so, but none have done so with quite the send off that West Ham United gave to (either Upton Park or) the Boleyn Ground against Manchester United last night.

There was a period when West Ham seemed to delight in denying Manchester United major trophies, and perhaps one of the most famous victories of this period came at The Boleyn Ground at the end of April 1992. It had been a quarter of a century since Manchester United had last been the...

Video of the Day: Leicester City vs West Ham United, October 1997

Leicester play West Ham United in the Premier League this afternoon, a match that will see the club potentially take another huge step towards this year’s title. For this morning’s match, we’re going back to their topsy-turvy mid-1990s performance and a home match against West Ham from October 1997. Promoted through the play-offs at the end of the 1993/94 season, the club had been relegated straight back from whence they came the following season in second from bottom place in the table. The following season, however, they were back in the play-offs and back into the Premier League again....

Video of the Day: West Ham United vs Arsenal, April 1973

This weekend at The Boleyn Ground, West Ham United take on Arsenal in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off. This match marks the beginning of an important few days for West Ham, who also finally play their FA Cup quarter-final replay match against Manchester United next week in two matches that will go a long way toward deciding the fate of the club’s season. Dropping two points at home against Crystal Palace last weekend has put them on something of a back foot with regard to grabbing a Champions League place, but they can get back on track by picking up...
