Standing in the Pontoon as usual for that one. They were a class team, too good for us on the day (obviously, as the scoreline shows).

Quoted from gytone
It was Stewart, think his first name was Ray.......or twit

Ace penalty taker.

“If all mankind minus one, were of one opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.”

I was there as well. A lot of West Ham fans made the trip up north.  The defeat was our last outside-chance of getting into the Premiership (equiv).   We had had high ambitions in those days and a good team.

We were unlucky during the game but well beaten by the end.

West Ham had 7 or 8 players in the Team of the Season.

I remember it well. I'm sure it was 4 goals David Cross scored.

The game was near the end of the season and I think that we'd only conceded 4 goals in total at home all season until that game.

I was at this game, from what I remember, it was raining heavily, gluepot of a pitch.

I think Bobby Cummings had to go off injured towards the end leaving us a man short when we were two down.

They then made their class tell. tearing us apart with ease.

Very interesting thread on there regarding Sky and its sports channels. I thought it was only me that thought like that! Refreshing to see fans of a Premier League club also angry at what Sky and the greedy Premier League have done to the game.
