You don’t actually tell people they were your heroes do you but Ian Bishop most certainly was one of mine.
He’s been a pal for a very long time and one of the best playmakers ever to grace the Boleyn.
He’s also been a great fried to ClaretandHugh since our launch and it’s a real pleasure to bring you this this exclusive video blog with the great man via our partners Hammers Chat.
No sooner had he finished talking to us after yesterday’s game during which he provided the assist for Dean Ashton’s amazing scissor kicked goal, than he sat down with our Gonzo to give us his very special Boleyn memories before flying back to his Florida home this evening.
And here in Part One of our interview he talks of why he never did a warm-up at Upton Park during his playing days, his partnership with John Moncur at the heart of our midfield and much more.
Settle down and listen to one of the east end’s favourite scousers talk all things Irons.
