    Sir Geoff Hurst missing on Tuesday?

    Anyone know why Sir Geoff was missing and not mentioned on Tuesday night? Sir Bobby obviously featured prominently, as did Sir Trevor and Billy Bonds MBE, even Martin Peters OBE was there,  but at no point did Geoff Hursts name get mentioned,  very Stalinistic writing a third of our world cup winning rio out of our last big hurrah at the Boleyn.

    Apparently he had a prior engagement that he was committed to

    "I'm very sorry I couldn't be at Upton Park for the closing ceremony," Sir Geoff posted on the A1 Sporting Speakers Facebook page.
    "I had a prior engagement from a year ago that I was contracted to attend. I was at the end of season dinner last week and said my fond farewells to my spiritual footballing home.
    "I watched the game and the closing ceremony on TV this morning and it was a fitting end to 112 years for the most atmospheric ground and best and most loyal supporters in the land.
    "A great result last night that will live long in our memories. Let's look forward to a new era at the Olympic Stadium with optimism and faith in West Ham United's future. We will still be forever blowing bubbles hopefully for the next 112 years."
