Re: Alan WOOLER R I P
I only knew of Alan Wooler due to his interview in the book "They played for John Lyall". He came across as genuinely delighted that he played for the Club, as many did back then. Seemed a nice fella so RIP. Brilliant book by the way, well worth a read.

I loved those days, Syd, and I was present at the three home matches that Wooler had played for us.

The Big Match was always a Sunday afternoon ritual in our house and the theme was very memorable. I liked the previous theme as well.

Haven't watched the game yet but loving the intro to that clip, brings back a lot of Sunday afternoon memories from days gone by. For those of us of a certain age that is

Re: Alan Wooler R I P
According to ‘West Ham stats’, these were his appearances for us, four league and one FA cup. All were losses apart from the home match v Man Utd, which was a relegation 4 pointer. Rather significantly, the match v Stoke was Geoff Hurst’s first return to the Boleyn after leaving us.

22 Dec 1973: H Stoke City 0-2 16,513.
9 Jan 1974: A Hereford 1-2 17,423.
12 Jan 1974: H Man Utd 2-1 34,147.
1 April 1975: A Leicester 0-3 30, 408.
6 March 1976: H Birmingham 1-2 19, 863.

Here is the YouTube link for the Man Utd match. Wooler was wearing number 6 and can be seen hugging Billy Bonds when Bonzo scored his goal. Bertie Lutton also features, wearing the number 9 shirt:
