Well what an eventful day that was. Almost every West Ham fan that I spoke to before the game described their state of mind as being ‘nervous’ and I completely understood why.
Not to put too finer point on it this game was a must win and an absolute humdinger in terms of us staying the the Premier League. As you will see from the video the whole stadium and indeed the Olympic Park is geared up for top level football and relegation so soon after the move would have be unthinkable.
Of course there is still much to do but a win next weekend at Sunderland will almost make us safe but at least Kouyate’s winner has give us some breathing space particularly where Swansea are concerned.
Anyway this video sees me take my camera to the game and as usual I stopped off at the Hammers Chat boats for a barbecue and a few beers in the blazing sunshine before marching on the stadium. I even managed to get some footage of the Claret and Hugh flag as it made it’s debut and I can confirm that it is a whopper.
Anyway hopefully you enjoy the video . . . . . … . . .. it seems like ages since I filmed a home victory.
