We’ll Never Forget

The Boleyn Ground in Green Street has been handed over to developers Barratt London & Galliard Homes recdently. And this picture of West Ham’s ground may be the saddest one of Upton Park ever published (left). But we all know what we are heading for – the now “London Stadium” called OS in Stratford is not very far away, in less than three weeks time the Hammers will grace the pitch there.

It’s hurting to see the old Lady like this though – deprived of the Hammers Arms and the John Lyall Gates, with no football played there anymore, and no “Bubbles” ringing from the terraces.

The final goodbye to that fabulous old ground that served West United so well for 112 years will be followed by the pre-opening of the Olympic Stadium which West Ham will play against either Shakhtyor Soligorsk of Belarus or NK Domzale of Slovenia on Thursday 4th August in the UEFA Europa League third qualifying round. And on Sunday 7th August the official opening match will be played when West Ham host Italian champions Juventus.

We will not look back in grief, but that’s our promise:
We’ll never Forget you, old Lady Boleyn!

Come On you Irons!!!
