From Hugh Southon, who knew our late co-chairman as a personal friend.

It really is squeaky bum time as the Hammers arrive within the end of a season where the top six positions and competition in European football next season is on a knife edge.
As a betting man my money would is on the bloke from Brentford becoming an Iron. I think that’s where the smart money is now heading.
It didn’t go well last night of course but as I look through our remaining fixtures of the season I still refuse to let my knees jerk despite accepting we are in a real relegation scrap.
West Ham – despite our problems – remains one of the most popular clubs in the UK. Next year we celebrate our 125th anniversary since the club was founded under the name Thames Ironworks FC.
