1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):

The whole of my family support Chelsea (apart from me that is) They keep saying how good the stadium is. So couldnít pass the opportunity to visit for my first time when West ham played this season at Stamford Bridge.

2. How easy was your journey/finding the ground/car parking?

We travelled to the ground by Tube from South London. Got off at Fulham Broadway. Short walk to the stadium, just followed the crowds.

3. What you did before the game pub/chippy.... home fans friendly?

We had a few drinks and food in Wetherspoons near Victoria Station, The Willow Walk. Great pub with the usual menu and drinks that you see in a Wetherspoons. We also stopped just out side Earls Court Station for a couple. Pub directly opposite the station and full of away fans called the Courtfield.

4. What you thought on seeing the ground, first impressions of away end then other sides of the ground?

The ground looked very nice as we got close. We were searched on entering and made our way to the upper tier. Great view of the stadium for away fans and very good seating. There 3,000 Hammers fans in attendance for the game.

5. Comment on the game itself, atmosphere, stewards, pies, facilities etc..

Wasnít a bad game apart from West Ham losing 2-0. Great atmosphere with all the away fans singing for most of the game. Not the best move for Frank Lampard to celebrate his goal in front of the West Ham fans. Didnít go down well. Facilities were very good in the ground Pies, sausage rolls, Tea & Coffee. Alcohol was £4 for a pint of lager.

6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:

Very easy to get away from the game after the match. Got tube from Fulham Broadway. Was a bit of a queue after the game but what you would expect for a football match. Didnít have to wait long for a tube to arrive.

7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out: Game attended:

My overall thoughts for the day were very good. Had a great day at Chelsea and look forward to visiting again.
