I remember this game, I was in the top of the old barratt stand and I remember a West Ham fan in the lower section shouting " we want six"
Cannot remember who scored for us.


Bobby Cummings is my hero ! The main reason I am a Cod Head.

Can't find it on youtube, but found this one (the away game) from 1980 - lost 1 - 2 doh, says George Kerr put Kevin Drinkell on the transfer list the day before the match!!!!
Quoted Text
A side full of Town legends Batch, Brolly, Drinkell, Waters, Moore......... No disgrace losing 2-1 at Upton Park with Brooking, Bonds, Lampard etc in a West Ham side that ended the season as champions. Town were in the promotion places in March but eventually finished 7th.

I remember it too. They nullified much of our attack by booting Bobby C all over the pitch. Quality team but they didn't mess around either.

David Cross was one of those "nearly" great strikers. Very good at Div 2 level as it was then, but not quite top class. He was too good for us though that day. West Ham's side was a lot more physical than the Moore, Peters, Hurst one. Worthy champions.
