There’s always been an affinity between Irons and Man City fans.
Maybe it’s a mutual dislike of their Manchester neighbours or a similar history of ups and downs.
Ahead of the weekend clash with Manuel Pellegrini’s team the City fans have been getting quite emotional about their last visit to our ground on http://forums.bluemoon-mcfc.co.uk/threads/upton-park-memories.318789/
Here’s a selection of the comments we found.
O I’ve been a few times and always enjoyed the crack with the Hammers supporters during the match followed by a great time around Canary Wharf afterwards.
O I cannot believe this will be our last ever visit to the Boleyn which is a great old ground. I’ve been twice and always had respect for that place.
O I was there when we got relegated. The atmosphere was amazing. Those fans gave us an ovation and were shaking our hands afterwards.
O Hope we go out with a bang. We should bt the Hammers a goodbye gift or flag.
