WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

As you get older you probably shouldn’t still be hero worshiping people but I still get a real buzz out of seeing old players from my formative years just walking down the street. Just passed Tony Gale and I can’t stop smiling. Not sure I’d cope with seeing Billy Bonds. I’d probably need surgery to remove the grin.

I bumped into Trev, Keegan and Hoddle in Central London. I was too gobsmacked to speak to them.

Yeah I realised that after I posted. I think my inner child was just starstruck and blurted it out.

Re: Former players
Saw Billy bonds while in blue water once , he was queuing up for a coffee which looking back I should have offered to pay for but what with coffee being the price it is these days and me being a tight arse I didn't.

Re: Former players
Met most of the Boys of 86 and all gents to a man.

Met Bonzo and Sir Trev separately and again top men.

In fact I haven't met any WHUFC player who isn't from that era. Perhaps thats a reflection of John Lyall and what he expected of his players.

Re: Former players
met loads of them over the years (Alvin, a few times), but the only time I ever got nervous was meeting Billy at the fundraising event he did for Isla. still looked ready to play at 70

Re: Former players
Aren't you actually meant to ask the forum a question about their experiences after your little yarn?

When you went to the ticket office on a midweek daytime you would sometimes see players. ex-players/coaches etc at the club doing something. Remember meeting Martin Peters on a chilly Tuesday afternoon over there once. He was probably trying to flog some insurance.

Accidentally bumped in to Sir Trev on a London shopping trip absolute Gent. Mrs BC was taking the mick for ages out of me that I was worse meeting him than she was meeting her teenage idol Donny Osmond !!

Re: Former players
Bonzo is my alltime favourite Hammer and i dont know what i'd do if i ever met him. at 70 i'd probably have a bloody coronary with the surprise. he's a true Hammers hero and i'm certain that he'd run through walls for west ham.

Re: Former players
When we used to do the tournaments at Upton Park first year I was like a wide eyed kid when I first met Frank McAvennie who was my hero in the 80's, By the second and third year it was just like talking to a mate as he was just a nice, welcoming, genuine guy. Met Tony Gale and the ex Mrs loved him!

Re: Former players
A couple of years ago I followed Billy Bonds around a dinosaur-themed mini-golf course in Kent. He kept us waiting at every single hole, for which I’ll never forgive him.

Re: Former players
I've met Tony Gale quite a few times. Met a lot of the players back in the late nineties.. They were always in the gym at the rollerbowl.. Used to often be sat on the next set of apparatus.

Re: Former players
I saw Tony Gale at Gatwick a couple of years ago. I said Morning Reggie.... he smiled politely. Made my day.
