West Ham United Football Club are based in Stratford, Newham, east London. They played home matches at the Boleyn Ground in Upton Park between 1904 and 2016, and moved to the London Stadium for the start of the 2016-17 season.
The club's formative roots stretch back to their formation as a professional side in 1900, but existed for at least five years prior to this under the name Thames Ironworks F.C. who themselves were built upon the remains of Old Castle Swifts F.C. (a club formed in 1892).
The club initially competed in the London League (Winners 1897–98) later joining the Southern League (Division 2 Champions 1898–99) and Western League (Western League Champions in 1907–08) before joining the full Football League in 1919. They enjoyed their first top flight season in 1923 and have never fallen outside the top two divisions. They have won the FA Cup three times: in 1964, 1975, and 1980, and have also been runners-up twice, in 1923 and 2006. The club have reached two major European finals, winning the European Cup Winners Cup in 1965 and finishing runners up in the same competition in 1976. West Ham also won the Intertoto Cup in 1999. The club were inaugural winners of the War Cup in 1940. Their best finish in the top flight was a third-place finish in 1986. West Ham have been runners up twice in the Football League Cup in 1966 and 1981, and shared the 1964 Charity Shield
They were awarded the 1965 BBC Sports Personality of the Year Team Award in honour of their European Cup Winners Cup win.

Nice one, Wolfie.

If not for King Keanos promises and his Hungarian Goulash signings, could've been Ipswich Town playing at the weekend and maybe even playing to retain the English Premier League crown. (Yep, ok, slightly out of touch with reality on that one.)

WHU 1-3 WOLVES

Tamas is out of football now, Lizzie-Lou and is head "Covid19 is a conspiracy" leader in Hungary. He runs the "Anti-Mask" campaign....., which is almost an anagram of his name if you remove the "PR".

"The PR was removed @ PR years ago, mate!"

He is West Ham's first-choice taker for penalty kicks and has won the club's Hammer of the Year trophy twice, as well as being voted Hammer of the Decade at the end of the 2010s.[5]

Ah yes...it was I. I forgot we're on Wolfie's forum and everything has to be perfect. So I'm revising my score West Ham 3 v Wolves 1. Is that better? :lol:

David Moyes caption:

Reporter: "So, David. What about that defensive error in the 1991 League Cup Final which allowed Wright to wrap things up for the Cabbage & Ribs?"
Moyes: "Ancient history. I'm the manager of this team now."
Reporter: "Aye. Nice colour. NOT!"

I can see the laddies pain there, Wolfie. It's like a Dundee United spray job.

Out of curiosity though, what colour spray would be required......, golden mustard?

over the years since the 50s its slowly gone from old gold to orange then yellow, this season the new owners actually took notice of the fans and got close to the old gold. more like a brown,

the worst one was when we were sponsored by Dorito. Image

Those Wolves colours look like something I just left in the toilet. I even howled during the event. It might be prudent to dial back a bit on the Wanderers Optimism. Just a thought. I’ll be blowing bubbles tomorrow.😂

As much as I like seeing Wolves do well and have great admiration for their Manager, I’ve always had a soft spot for West Ham since the days of Bobby Moore, Martin Peters & Geoff Hurst. I also loved playing in West Ham colours in my playing days in Colchester, where I was friends with Alan Stephenson who played for them in the early 70’s.

I’ll run with my “soft spot” and go for 2-1 to West Ham.

To be honest I’m more interested in the Man City v Arsenal match. It would be interesting to see what reception Mikel Arteta gets from the Man City fans 🤔🤣😂🤣

Well I have to say last nights Two games did nothing at all for me, a bore fest of the highest order, I really don't think I've missed the Premier League at all, it just didn't even seem real to me, as I said a while back, its ITFC or nothing for me.
