|The very best posts from KUMB over the years ...
I'd be interested to know what it was like to see WH play with those three together.
How I wish I had the chance, even to see Brooking would have been a dream. Got to see Bonds very late in his career though.
I didn't, but I did see Martin Peters play for Norwich in front of around 300 people...
I saw Bobby Moore play, possibly for a world XI against a celebrity team at East Ham Utd. The only other participants I can remember were George Best and the comedian Marty Feldman.
Around about the late 70's.
Saw Hurst and Moore play on many occasions,my first Hammers game was v Southampton August 1970, Peters had already left for Spurs by then (March 1970?) so never got to see the Holy Trinity of football in the flesh
Moore & Hurst yes, both played in my debut at The Boleyn.
Never saw Peters, he was gone (same as the brain^^ described)
Luckily for me I saw them play together many times.
Geno,Bonzo and Devo wasn't a bad trio to follow them in later years.
Same here, first game a few months after you
I saw Mooro score !!
This is the only video I can find on You Tube with the 3 of them playing. Easy to forget how Redknapp was a key part of the team then.
It was obviously great but you have to break it down into 2 era's . Pre World Cup and post World Cup 66
Pre World Cup Geoff and Martin were simply good club players although it was plain to see Martin was going to be class . Bobby already was .
After 1966 they all stepped up to be world class and it was a great time to be a Hammer. Every West Ham fan took immense pride and satisfaction in having 3 World Cup winners and were'nt slow in reminding other clubs who won the cup
I saw the three of them play together for West Ham, and regard myself as being so very privileged to have done so. We all know how great a player and captain Mooro was, and also the scoring prowess of Hurst, but Peters was the most complete footballer of the three. He played in every position for the Hammers, and that includes goalkeeper. Oh, how we could do with three players like that now..
if mooro played in jimmy greaves testimonial - i saw him play but i was a nipper then and dont remember it
dont speak to my dad either so cant confirm it
had the privilege to see brooking/devo/bonds many times and these were my heroes as a young lad
I was lucky enough to have seen all three play on my first ever visit and many a time since.
I thought West Ham was always going to be like this.
I disagree slightly with the previous poster who said that Hurst only became World class post the World Cup, to me Hursts best two seasons were the two leading up to the World Cup finals.
Peters matured nicely but he still played his best football for us, Spurs were a little too regimented for Peters in my view, he was never quite the same player.
Yep loads of times and saw them training in the car park from our old school playground next door.
Yep I did along with poplar geezer, had all there autographs as well, only didn't appreciate it at the time
My 1st WHU game, 22 Aug 1970.
Moore, Hurst & Brooking played. 2-2 v Chelsea. Hurst scored. We were losing 2-0 at half time
Same here. Saw Peters play against us.
Yes, lots of times. Also used to have a pint with Moore and Hurst Sunday lunchtime.
Saw Moore v. Derby,Sheff. Utd and Arsenal in 73/74. Saw Peters play at the Boleyn for Norwich in 76/77. Never saw Hurst but seeing Boogers years later makes up for that a little bit.
Could have been Banks too,now that could have been some team.
