Correct me if i'm wrong but I think West Ham scored while the crowd we're still entering the ground.

I remember being furious that I couldn't go to the game because my sister in law got married that day and I really fancied our chances. The reception was at the Winter Gardens and of course it was pre internet so I had no idea what the score was. I seem to remember that one of the staff finally told me and I sulked all evening!! I had an excuse because I was only 30 after all!!!

Couldn't get in the Pontoon that day as it was rammed and ended up in the Harrington St open corner. Think we got a bit wet. We were virtually impossible to score against at BP that season, until West Ham turned up and tore us a new one. Think it may have been Paul Goddard who got their other goal.

A young Frank Lampard played for them as well it seems.

I was there in the Barratt Stand with my old man. West Ham had a very good team at that time

I'm not sure. If I remember right, they did have a 3-year old in midfield.

I remember it being a nice sunny day, getting beat by a very good team and remember thinking all the west ham fans are massive lumps.
