Last night was historic for any West Ham out there as they won 3-2 in a thriller against Manchester United. But it wasn’t special for just that reason, many more happened last night.
You ever get the feeling on the last day of school or college something magical had to happen. Maybe it doesn’t happen but that magical feeling is there. That is exactly how it was as West Ham played their last game at Upton Park.
The hammers had to win last night as it was mandatory, taking the lead in the first half through a sakho strike. The second half was the story of the game as West Ham went down from two goals by Anthony Martial.
The final 15 minutes of the game saw West Ham work their socks off to get back into the game with an equaliser from Antonio and a header from Winston Reid.
The win had to happen, as it was the last game. They would have let the fans down if there wasn’t a win. The atmosphere at the final whistle was quite emotional. I really wish i was at the stadium. I’m not even a West Ham fan! The fans did behave in a crazy manner as bottles and cans were thrown at the United bus when arriving at the stadium. West Ham chairman David Sullivan had issued a statement apologising for the behaviour of the fans.
West Ham played absolutely phenomenal. You have to ask yourself if they can win the league next season? With a performance like that. Next season they move into a new stadium. The olympic park. In the past stadium moves have not always been the best for certain clubs. For an example Arsenal. Lets just hope West Ham can improve for next season.
Round of applauds for Slaven Billic who has done a good job this season. Payet has been a massive addition to the squad. He is definitely a player they need to hold unto for the next few seasons.
