However, the redevelopment of Londons Docklands boded well for a better future, as East Londons skyline rapidly changed and the young and the affluent began to migrate there.And throughout it all there stood that colossus of East End life - the thing of beauty that is West Ham United. At the heart of the community for over a century, the Hammers have endured more heartache than most teams.From their humble Thames Ironworks roots, through the glorious flowing football of the Ron Greenwood era and the emergence in the 1960s of three of Englands greatest-ever footballers- the Holy Trinity that were Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters.The legends continued through the decades: Brooking, Bonds, Di Canio, but there was also the turbulence of the Redknapp era and the ominous entity known as the Inter-City Firm- one of the most notorious football hooligan crews Britain has ever known.The book was reviewed on They Fly So High website thus:I was taken on a poignant roller-coaster ride through West Ham Uniteds history.The author successfully charts the social and political climate through his lifetime journey supporting the Hammers- with all of the major highs-and-lows recounted for the reader...The book was a great read from cover to cover and, for me, a reminder of WHY we support the club we do and what it means to be a West Ham United supporter.

The Cup Finals, the yo-yo promotion and relegation seasons, the legends to have pulled on the claretnblue shirt- even the infamous I.C.F. hooligans all get a mention in this humorous guide to the history of the club...The book is also interspersed with Fans Memories and is definitely on my list to give as an ideal present...
