Did you know if we beat Liverpool Sunday,it will be the greatest month in our history,results wise...In 1986.We did win Seven,but we did lose 2 in the month of April.

In 1980,we did equal tonight`s feat of 6 wins in a Calendar month,but we had one loss in the month of September. We were in the 2nd Tier,but I would say,that was the most enjoyable in our history.We reached the League Cup Final and walked the League with the best Football I have seen.

goodpost:) That season was great fun, every bit as enjoyable as 86, it felt like we’d win 4-0 every week. (That may be nostalgia talking). I missed the final game as my stupid brother booked his wedding for Saturday 3pm.

1980/81 was a very enjoyable season despite us losing 2 of the 4 games we did lose to my former employers Luton Town. But for me it doesn't compare with 85/86 for the quality of football, probably because in 85/86 the opposition was a better standard. I doubt I'll ever see another season where West Ham had a chance of actually winning the league with only 2 games left to play.

The sad thing is in typical West ham fashion we didn't strengthen an already very good squad to press on. And of course a great shame we didn't get to enjoy any European experiences in the UEFA cup because of the ban.
TRADITION--Just because we've always done it like this doesn't mean it's not incredibly SILLY

In my opinion 1980/81 was the best football,I ever see.For Entertainment.it was the best..Brooking and Devonshire were poetry in motion.

Probably not. But I'm enjoying the one we're having right now tbh. For me the highlight was the 4-0 win at Stamford Bridge. Although the penultimate game at The Hawthorns was a bit special too with everyone a Chelsea fan for the day, willing them to turn over the scousers. Shame Chelsea didn't win that one instead of the game at Upton Park. A truly momentous season.

If we'd have beaten than at Home,we'd have won the League.There is no way Everton(last game) were handing their title over to their rivals.
