Bonzo and Brooking honoured in West Ham mural


image1 (3)

A new West Ham mural is the process of being created on the corner Priory and Barking road in the shadow of the nearly demolished Boleyn Ground.

The mural depicts loyal Hammers servants  Billy Bonds and Trevor Brooking on the side wall of the Fish and Chip shop along the Barking road.

When Claret and Hugh put a call into Newham Council press office they were known the wiser although they promised they would look into it and get back to us. The club was also in dark as to the creator and funding of this mural.  The works are being professionally undertaken using an extendable platform and cordons around the area so a street artist seems unlikely unless it is Banksy himself of course.

    Whilst i applaud any tribute to Sir BILLY BONDS.
    I Started the facebook page Name a stand BILLY BONDS for his 70th which is now called Name a stand BILLY BONDS Now.
    I understand that no more stands can be named but Sir Trev and bonzo have shared many honours and a share stand with Sir Trev would be very fitting.
    Sean has said in the past that the club had something planned that was big. I just know many thousands of irons fan feel it time to get it done.
    Lets not do an after thought when we have lost the guy. Like BOBBY MOORE is criminal.
    So like my name was previously on Facebook HONOUR BILLY BONDS!!! #BILLYBONDSSTAND

    Stay loyal to your club son, resist all offers from bigger more successful clubs, accept less money to stay at your club and do not stop playing till you have 750 games or more to your name and then you WILL have a mural of yourself on the side of a fish and chip shop in Barking.

    It must all seem worthwhile now 😂😂

    Banksy is a Bristol City fan I believe and also a part of Massive Attack, Goldie accidentally outed him on a Radio Show.
