I’m 36

Wasn’t born when this lot did the thing we’re celebrating

(I’m also short and bald though)

Three generations of my family will be there.

Been to a number of these evenings and they are always excellent entertainment.

It’s nearly here

Got my replica 1980 cup final shirt (not from the club I hasten to add as I won’t give them bar stewards any more money than is absolutely necessary for match tickets )

Getting excited these were my peak days until after the children got a bit older following West Ham home and away from 1975 to 1982 with 2 mates from school who sadly I’m no longer in touch with though I did sit in front in the BMU of the brother of one of them for a couple of game over the late 1990/S and tried to reconnect without success (the internet didn’t really exist then) when I started going again once the oldest kid got to about 5 and she’s now 29

Where have all the years gone ?

Going to see my favourite player of all times billy bonds who epitomised everything West Ham means to me then and now

Have to admit to slight moisture of the eyes looking back to that period - halcyon times for me

Really like how you’ve archived footage mywhufc :thup:

I went to every game in the ‘80 Cup run and am taking my ticket stubs tomorrow to see if there’s any chance of getting them signed. Thanks to westhamshares I already have Sir Trevor’s on the Wembley one.

Hope to see a few of you there. More excited about it than a match to be honest. Last time they said the Cliffs sold more booze than ever before.

Danny Baker’s on there tonight. He’s the warm up for Tony Gale.

Gutted to miss this.

Only game I went to was the semi final against the Toffees at the Villa. Aged 12.

Oh to shake Tonker by the hand for the pen in the Qtrs.. Such a young kid.

Warming up in The Hamlet Court. Appears to be the “away fans” pub.

Made me feel very happy.
The guys were on good form and seem to genuinely like one another. That old comradery seems to be alive and kicking.
Good luck to all of them, it was like meeting old mates again.

What a top night

I didn’t realise at the time how good the team from 1980 and the team promoted the following year actually were

Last British and last 2nd division team to win the fa cup

Nice to see doc ball mushy Wembley1966 and Snow White

If you don’t go you missed a great evening with some wonderful stories Gale was on top form
