1. Why you were looking

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

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....

impressions of away end then other sides of the
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
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:
My overall thoughts for the day were very good.
Had a great day at Chelsea and look forward to
