  1. The absolute BEST thing about Avram Grant’s tenure as West Ham manager was his signing of Winston Reid. Absolutely loved him, a Fantastic Centre Half. Dependable, he was a True Warrior who had a Never Say Die attitude, the timing of his tackles was uncanny and only special players have this gift. One of my all-time favourite defenders.
    I’m sure many West Ham fans like myself wish you the very Best and hope that you can go on and enjoy the rest of your career injury-free…. as you deserve it Reidy!

  2. If I remember correctly Reid scored the last & winning goal against Man U at the last game at the Boleyn surely he deserves some recognition at the new stadium

  3. Good luck Winston a great player for us over the years the last goal at Upton park ⚒⚒

  4. A great pity if we never see Winston back in the claret and blue again. A good servant to the club and a tidy defender. Good luck in the USA.
