Roll Call for all those who actually attended the 1965 ECWC Final
Trotted out every now and again but relevant to do again 50 years on from last drink etc. For all those 70 something's - Your reminiscences from the game. Mine as a 12 year old accompanied by Dad (I missed out on the 64 Cup Final - could only get one ticket between us in the Voucher ballot in those days and no luck with the lucky Program number either) On the day of the final late after noon East London was clogged with traffic and the Grey Green Coach we were on took forever to inch toward Wembley with many getting off when we approached Baker Street for a quicker Met line ride up to Wembley Park - we finally got into the ground a good 15 mins into the game but what struck me straight away was that West Ham seemed to be all over Munich going close up to Half Time. Great atmosphere and clearly a high quality game.
Sealeys' Goals kind of engrained in my mind scoring at our end of the stadium - I just thought it would be like this every year - oh dear. Sadly unless the tooth fairy delivers a ticket I will not be in Prague - those that make it - enjoy as it might be a long time to the next drink.

My grandad was at the 1923 cup final, dad went to 1964, 1965 and 1966 finals and I've been to the rest since then.
Dad went to loads of finals at Wembley and always said the 1965 one was the best he saw.

Went with three mates straight from work.Tickets were easy to get back then and it was kind of taken for granted we would win. As back then that's what we did at Wembley

I bought every newspaper on the Thursday morning just to relive the moment again and again

I'm sure I read that this was the very first European club match broadcast live across the continent
That, and the way the game was played, gave us a lasting legacy of affection across the globe
Of course, a year later only cemented those feelings

Oh what could have been

I meant to add that back in those days the European competitions were straight knock out two legged affairs and that is a format that to this day I much prefer.

I had four tickets for the match. Two pairs, one for me and my mate the other for our fathers. Along with thousands of others we went by coaches ( Lacy’s ) which we picked up in Ilford Lane, Barking. Hugely entertaining and enjoyable game played in a way that neutrals remembered too as being up there with the best of matches.
To this day I cannot remember the journey home or how I got to work the next day.

Byrne didn’t play in the 1965 ECWC final.
Dear played up front replacing the injured Budgie.

I was nine years of age and can remember the night well. I remember bubbles being sound very loud and the clap/West Ham chant. Coming out all the kids were passed above the heads of the grown ups, I remember that clearly, what a night.

I was 2 and had but a right tasty crew together, but the cunty plod wouldn't let us on the plane as we didn't have passports and our nappies (which we intended to weaponise) were rank.

Re: Roll Call for all those who ACTUALLY attended the 1965 ECWC Final
I was there at Wembley, with a German work colleague, who was also a member of the 1860 club. I was 20 years old.
Great night out and he bought the drinks and the meal.
It was my second final in a row, as I was there for the FA cup and, a year later, for the World Cup victory.

Love that, ‘tips

I was far too young for the 65 final, but I was at Heysel in 76.

I was just turned 13 and a few of us went from school, South West Ham Tech, Barking Road, Canning Town. Went all the way by tube and scared a few workers with our bowlers painted claret and blue.
Great atmosphere, I swapped my bowler for an 1860 flag. I bought the DVD a few years back, in black and white and it reminded me, as I thought at the time, what a great game Johnny Byrne had.
Also went to every game home and away in1975/76 ECWC on the way to the final.
Memories, great times.

I was there with my dad and his mates from work. I was 12. Couldn't take me to the cup final the year before because it involved them all going to the boozer after the game. Best West Ham United night ever. Still got the programme.

Re: Roll Call for all those who ACTUALLY attended the 1965 ECWC Final
I was 12. My Dad picked me up from school and we drove straight to Wembley, so I'm wondering if I was till wearing my school uniform. After the game, a Munich fan gave me his red and blue flag, which I still have.
