We had a fantastic time as guests of West Ham Chairmen – David Gold and David Sullivan – for the tasty ‘West Ham v Arsenal’ fixture at Upton Park.
And what a game it was – I can do no better than ‘paste’ Sky’s Phil Thompson’s verdict here.
“For the neutral this was absolutely stunning, it was a magnificent game. It was a second game in three days, with both sides giving everything. I didn’t want the game to end, it was that good. Szczesny deserves great compliments because he has made a big decision that anything in the air he is going to come and get and control the air in the penalty area. He had to be precise.”
Perhaps the only thing I should add is that West Ham were very unfortunate not to pick up at least a point from this game, where they had a superb Alex Song goal disallowed for a very dubious ‘offside – interfering with play’ decision – no ‘offside’ Hammers player touched the ball! Anyway, I was very proud of the lads fight back in the second half.
We loved talking to some of the celebrities in the lounge – as shown below:
Thank you to David Gold for looking after us..
