Main difference for me Ibbs is that 85/86 I was there. 19/20 I'm not. :D
In 85/86, I did not have any knowledge of how the League work but my mum bought me West Ham Duvet cover as I was only 11 when West Ham finished 3rd. However from 1989 the year West Ham got relegated, I started to learn how the league work and wish I understood 5 years earlier :lol: :lol: :lol:

This season I know how the league/teams successful work. :lol: :lol:

Also, the difference of 85/86 and 2019/20 is that Liverpool on its own were dominating the league (without billionnaire fake money) with Everton, Man Utd, Nottingham Forest and Tottenham the nearest rival but not a regular top 6 like now as no other lesser club can reach except this season due to VAR and some big clubs over-rated on/off.

Had the snow not appeared in Jan/Feb 86, West Ham will not have a fixture pile up, and could have won the league, but eventhough the fixture congestion of April 86, we won 6 game in a row and still NO injuries mounting up. Home loss to the plastic plus Liverpool WON at the Plastic and the poor start of 7 games, that robbed us winning the league.

Question is: Will West Ham win the Premier League when I am alive??????

Everton fans took proper liberty's that night Tim scarfers and kids getting slaps cutting people but once the chaps re grouped by Stanley park and went on mass the gutless cunts were nowhere to be seen.

I went on a coach from canning town popular coach's arranged by slug and Jed seem to remember was snooker world final that night Davis and white ? We all backed jimmy so a bad day / night for us.


Always remember bill g at Stanley park

All tight lads. no shitters ok stand your ground we are west ham. you all ready ok let's go ( west ham as one ...happy days )
And theres me thinking Slug couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery. :)

I think Jed used to do all the work slug took the money :lol:

Canning town snipers mate fearless even when massively outnumbered 8-)

I done some miles that season, I tell ya.
The difference is that team played as one, no individuals, we won and lost as a team.
We played some great stuff that season, on some poxy pitches and I honestly believe that if that side played us today with all the modernity it would be embarrassing.
And we had two strikers that knew where the net was.

On the train back from West Brom, we heard the soon to be victims had won so that was that.

A bit of a to-do with a few Arse fans at Euston but off for beers and a ruby in London anyway.


We'll never know if we'd have won the game at Everton if the title depended on it.

Nearest I'll ever see us challenging. The fat frog season we were never really that close. And while the shyster twins are at the wheel it won't get any nearer than that I'm afraid.

Only my 3rd season as fan was only 12 so could only go to few home games but saw all the 3 in 6 days and fixtures wasnt the reason we lost the league. That pile up helped us coz no one give us a chance but we all pulled together on the pitch. Players then wasnt pussies and played througfh with minor injuries.

That Ipswich game was our third in 6 days if I remember correctly. And the Chelsea game was even more annoying because we had absolutely slaughtered them 4-0 at Stamford Bridge. And Alan Dickens had given us the lead.

Tbh I don't think the fixture pile up cost us too much. We won those 3 games in 6, plus we won the game immediately before them 8-1 against Newecastle and the one after, at West Brom, 3-2. The Everton game, which we lost, was irrelevant by then as Liverpool had won the title at Stamford Bridge the day we played WBA.

Imo what cost us was a crap bunch of away results starting around Christmas. If I remember right we lost at Spurs, Arsenal and Liverpool in quick succession. And if my memory isn't playing tricks we had a pretty shit start to the season. We even managed to lost at home to Luton who seem to be something of a bogey team for us. Great season though. Best ever in my years of supporting the Hammers. Nothing comes close imo.
I'm guessing you would have been singing 'Bubbles' with great gusto, but did you have pie'n' mash? ;)
I wasn't even singing it without gusto mate. ;)

And I also avoid pie & mash like the fucking plague. I like the humble spud when it's served chipped, roast, hash browned or boiled new potatoes but mashed up and served with leftover meat cuts with that 'orrible green stuff that looks (and probably tastes) like something that comes out of your nose-----forget it.

If memory serves we went into the centre and had a ruby. Sadly I was driving that day so the beers had to wait until we got home.

And me and the Ipswich game under the lights was fucking amazing

The fixture pile up cost us that year we would of pissed the league if not

Losing to the plastics was heart-breaking

Good days when we the fans were as one not shattered and splintered like we are now ( thank to the 3 cunts for that )

The start of the season cost us,nothing else.We lost 3 of the first 4 and only won one of the first 7.

We were 18th..If we'd have gelled from week one,we'd have been Champions.

Had a decent Cup run as well...remember doing the Red Mancs at their place..
Lost to Wednesday in the Qtrs...

To Early for comparisons just yet...TBH we're still not as good as we were under Slav 15/16...
If not for a couple of stupid home defeats early on,we'd be comparing it to 85/86..
