    West Ham v Manchester United - last ever game at The Boleyn

    My preferred starting 11 and formation for tomorrow night

    Randolph, Tomkins, Collins, Reid, Cresswell, Antonio, Payet, Kouyate, Noble, Sakho, Carroll

    A diamond formation with Payet central and not stuck out on the wing. Noble and Kouyate MUST be disciplined and stay shielding the back four. If one goes forward then the other must cover. Too many times they both go forward and leave gaping holes in our midfield. Bournemouth, Arsenal and Swansea home are 3 prime examples

    After last Saturday team changes need to be made. I don't want to select a team but someone other then Antonio must play at RB pushing him up front to cause the damage he can.
    Mine you I cannot see how you can mend the team spirit in two days so I can see us losing our last game at UP.

    Well despite having to get up at 4am I stayed up and watched it all, have saved it on th sky+ box and will order wife, children and grandchildren not to touch it on pain of death. Absolutely fantastic game, the first half they just couldn't live with us, power, pace, tenacity, passion and that was just the crowd! 

    Every player was a star Kouyate was magnificent, Lanzini and Cresswell put a huge shift in and Antonio is on of the finds of the season. 
    Found parts of the aftermath very emotional, so many of the goals they showed I saw live, and everyone of the hammers of the year that were there I saw play live. Sad that Sir Geoff Hurst was not there, or mentioned? And ive been told and seeing him last night can believe that Martin Peters is not a well man. 
    Ive not always been a huge Mark Noble fan, but he has grown with  the responsibility of being club captain, and he spoke well and from the heart

    Automatic qualification for the Europa league is in our hands now, Stoke appear to have gone on holiday already so Sunday hopefully will be a great end to the season. This is West Ham so I wont be surprised if we lose with a wimper,  but we certainly saw the Boleyn Ground out in style last night. 

    One word for what happened to the manure coach before the game 'wankers'  could have ruined the whole thing with that one stupid moronic act. Hope they get the book thrown at them when tbey are caught.

    The game was the first thing on my mind, when I woke Tuesday morning.  My stomach churned at the thought of it being the last game ever at the Boleyn.  I felt sick remembering just 3 days previously the awful team display and loss that the boys served up.  Thank Heaven that was not the last game as scheduled.

    As the day wore on, I got myself into such a state emotionally, that at one point I'd decided I couldn't go. At almost exactly the same point I realised that was not an option, and the pain and queasiness returned.

    Met up with Tony and Mark in the supps club and went into the ground at 7.30, unaware then of the delay.  The extra wait was awful, plus everyone decided to stand for this, the whole game and the after match party.  My back was killing me by the eventual kick off.

    The next 94 minutes were intense, as in please God, what if, I hate being one up, B'stards they're gonna spoil our party at 1-2, the relief at 2-2, please Lord don't let them score again/let us score one more.  Right up to the eventual winner, the smacker on my cheek from Abbi, trying to control my bladder and every happy emotion known to mankind.  All of the above continuing until the final whistle, when I screamed, laughed and cried all at the same time and thanked God again, whilst my poor body stood tall and proud even though it wanted to wilt and collapse into a heap!

    All that worrying, all that emotion was worth it.  Even though the worrying proved unnecessary at the end of the day. The mind game from Manure arriving late and causing the delay in the hope of unsettling our team....Ha!  As it turned out nothing was going to stop our boys putting on a magnificent footballing display of the highest order.  Each and every one of them that wore the claret and blue this night, were absolutely awesome. Thanks lads, I love you all.

    The Boleyn Roar, for the last time sent shivers up and down my spine .... What a night, what a result and what a final chapter in the history of our beloved Boleyn Ground.

    It was one of those games that ill keep on watching the goals every now and then on the sky planner, every day so far Laughing

    Not so much for the goals themselves but I love to watch the reaction of the crowd and the other players as the ball hits the back of the net.
