On the First Day of Christmas my true love sent to me ....
The most famous Hammer of them all, and the finest defender in the world at the peak of his career. A blond colossus at the heart of West Ham's defence for over a decade. Moore represented his country at every level of the game.
There's Only One Bobby Moore.
In total Twenty One players have returned to feather their nest back at the Boleyn Ground.
Hammers fans will be calling on the current two to do the business on the field of play and make it a Happy Christmas for us all.
The club have won the FA Cup three times: in 1964, 1975 and 1980. I'm sure most fans this season would want to convert the Cup wins into League points. A Cup win and relegation in the same season, its happened to other teams.
On the other hand it would be great morale booster to come away from White Hart Lane on Wednesday with a victory.
COME ON YOU IRONS ...

On the 9th August 2009 West Ham United retired the number six shirt which was worn for the last time against Villarreal for the appropriately name Bobby Moore Cup to mark the 50th anniversary of Bobby Moore's debut for the club.
At half-time the current number six Matthew Upson, changed to wearing number 15. The centre-half then handed two replica kits to Stephanie Moore to mark the retirement of '6' the most famous number in West Ham's history.
I have been privileged to hold and photograph Bobby's debut shirt he wore against Manchester United 8th September 1958

After last nights result anything's possible.
Perhaps Wishes Do Come True
Pie and mash is a traditional London working-class food, originating in the East End of London. Pie, mash and eel shops have been in London since the 19th century.
During the Victorian era, industrial air pollution tended to be worse in the east of London due to the prevailing westerly winds emanating from Stamford Bridge, with the result that the East End was settled more by the working classes, while the western part of the city became the home to Muscovite's.
The savoury pie had long been a traditional food, and its small hand sized form also made it a transportable meal, protected from dirt by its cold pastry crust.
If you don't want to make a homemade version like me, recipe taken from last season's Official Annual. I recommend Nathan's 51 Barking Road on match days.
On the 22 October 1994 in his first game back in his second spell for the Hammers Julian Dicks in keeping with his reputation, was booked.
Dicks played a major part in helping to keep West Ham in the Premier League in 1994–95 scoring five goals.
However the Terminator went into the referee’s book on 9 occasions.
Merry Christmas Julian ...
A competent wing-half who by sheer determination and hard work became one of the most feared and revered strikers in World football.
His World Cup Final "hat-trick" in 1966 and six goals against Sunderland two years later have been woven into the fabric of football folk lore. The second-highest Hammers' marksman of all time behind Vic Watson with 180 League goals, plus 72 in the Cups; holder of 49 full England caps, winner of F.A. and European Cup Winners Cup medals in 1964 and '65...World Cup Winners medal and Football League Cup Runners-up medals, 1966.
Well maybe not...
