West Ham United v Newcastle United
Boleyn Ground (for the last time)!
14 September 2015
Worked out we'd been coming here for over 30 years so said farewell to The Boleyn Ground, Green Street and Upton Park Tube where we've had so much "fun" in the past.
Not really sad to see it go, but it was in the middle of a community - the new Olympic Stadium is a whole new ball game... Be interesting to see how they do there.
West Ham won 2-0 and dominated the game really - early strike in the first half (stuck on the bloody tube and missed it) and then again in the second (in the queue for beer, missed it). Though The Toon were very poor and looked disinterested after the second goal - not good.
Good crack with the Toon lads though, it's been a while...
Of course we'll probably get them in the cup and have to come back here after all!
