Trevor Brooking Scores Only Goal to Seal 1980 FA Cup Final Win Against Arsenal
Sandwiched between ’61 and ’63 where he was voted Hammer of the Year, Moore played in the warm up match against Peru and remained in the squad for the duration of the 1962 World Cup in Chile, where England were beaten in the Quarter Finals by winners Brazil.
The match day noise and smell of food, music playing and children playing football all gone and cloak of silence surrounding the ground. I tried to imagine the match day, groups of people drinking and chatting, lining up for food, buying their programmes, voices of children calling and the sense of anticipation rising as fans poured into the stadium itself.
After the excellent performance at Anfield against runaway league leaders Liverpool, the Hammers followed that up with a convincing win against The Saints at the London Stadium
The draw against The Seagulls at London Stadium on Saturday felt like a defeat. After holding a 3-1 lead the shape of the team changed when Moyes replaced Antonio with Masuaku and put 5 at the back we lost the movement and danger we had going forward.
Moyes set up the team to restrict Liverpool and the game plan worked until the penalty awarded to the opposition on 35mins. Until then the Hammers worked hard to keep Liverpool at bay and sit deep, venturing into wide and forward positions when able.
The Moyes effect seems to have stalled somewhat having seen the Hammers secure 1 point from a possible 6. The match against The Blades was dire and with Moyes return to London Stadium against his old club, there was little else to cheer except not losing.
Moyes brings festive cheer to London Stadium as West Ham United start 2020 with a win.
The move from the Boleyn Ground to London Stadium has divided Hammers fans from the moment the plans were presented right up to the present day.
