Bonzo takes a place of ‘honour’

Ckaret-&-Hugh-FlagHere’s the first design for the 24ft x 12ft flag which ClaretandHugh will be putting into the London Stadium on match days and for which we have had permission from the club.

We felt it was really important to ensure that Billy Bonds was finally placed bang on the Hammers radar after sometimes being ignored for too long.

Bonzo is the most retiring of men and never one to try hogging the limelight but he is the ultimate Hammers hero to so many of us and we wanted him ‘honoured.’

He has often explained how stood in awe of Bobby Moore when arriving at the club and for a long while afterwards so we believe it is entirely fitting that the two greatest should take pride of place on our banner.

  1. Excellent. Love him to bits – if only few more of the current squad had his grit and pride, eh?

  2. Top stuff fellas lets hope it meets with the approval of the whtid busy bodies who seem so interested in it!! Lol

  3. I love it lads well done. That’s top drawer. Only one suggestion, could you not incorporate the web address on the bottom in smaller type?

  4. Lmao Slim. Our feeder site will be clamouring for one now mark my words. They’ll slag this off then want one themselves. I was thinking up some wording for them and thought “West Ham till I die – whinging since 2007” what you think?

    • Just dont stand underneath it,it will drip on you 😂😂
      Ok now you are going to get me in trouble,time to go to the pub for some prematch vocal chord looseners 😉

  5. I think we are looking to replace the words Claret and Blue Army with Come on you irons!

  6.

    The two best examples, not only to us, but to the world of football.
    It says it all.

  8. Best pick of players there fellas.Great choices i must say.Well done!

  9. How about “WHTID – Pampers Army” Rads?

  10. Sean no!!!! Stick with Caret & Blue Army that’s proper retro and suits the Bobby & Billy theme. KUMB have gone for Come on you Irons. It won the vote just ahead of Over your Mum lmao.

    Ok re web site shame tho.

  11. Bloody marvelous… if only we had a Bonzo today When I slag of Noble it is probably that I saw Bonzo play a couple of hundred games home and away . He had it all . Leadership , grit , tackle headers. Everything in fact that Noble has never had .
