New Section ?

Recommended Posts

I've been sniffing around a few of the West Ham forums lately to try and gage the reaction to Big Sam's appointment. Whilst doing so I found a site which had a section devoted to '100 Greatest Moments in West Ham History'. I quite liked the idea and wondered whether there'd be any support for us 'adopting' this as a sub-section for our own club. I would imagine that it would be top heavy with moments from recent history but those supporters with longer memories might like to offer contributions that would help give an incite into Rovers rich history for the younger element amongst our members.

Anyway, Just a thought.

A few off the top of my head that I can recall (in no particular order):

1 - Winning Promotion back to the Prem at Deepdale.

2 - Winning the Full Members Cup at Wembley

3 - Winning the Leage Cup at Cardiff

4 - Beating Derby 4-2 in the play-off Semi Final.

5 - Beating Man United 4-3 at Ewood

6 - Beating Man United 2-1 at O/Trafford

7 - Beating Palace 5-4 in 88/89

8 - Drawing 3-3 with Leicester at Ewood

10 - Garner's hat-trick v Man City to break Tommy Briggs' record

12 - Shearer's debut double v Palace

13 - Beating Forest 7-1 to officially open the 'New Ewood'.

14 - Signing Steve Livingston and Tony Dobson for £750,000 - Unheard of money for Rovers at the time.

15 - Garner's 5 goal haul v Derby

16 - Rovers first play-off venture v Chelsea (0-2 v Chelsea 87/88)

17 - Signing Shearer

18 - Beating Norwich 7-1

19 - Signing Big Colin the first time around.
