Our office is nearby and matchdays are quite something
Thousands of identikit geezers pouring out of Stratford station into Westfield shopping centre, all with a gelled side-parting & either the home shirt or a buttoned up Fred Perry polo shirt.
Whilst the first couple of seasons at the new stadium a large % were the neutrals looking for a day out think that’s less the case now and they’ve genuinely grown the fanbase a fair bit, particularly out into Essex.
Got a few mates that love Stratford/Leyton way
They all chipped in for 2 shared season tickets just so they can go to the games when #### all else going on. Loads of trendy bars/eateries over that way now so people make a day of it.
They do very well from Essex, lot of displaced East Enders
Where do West Ham get their massive gates from?
Probably 4th or 5th biggest club in their home city, spent large parts of their history in the lower leagues, never won a league title, never won much full stop.
62k at the Boleyn today.
