Seeing those West Ham pics, on our recent trip I met an avid " Irons " fan.
He suffers from Motor Neurone disease and is in a wheelchair. He travels from Devon by train then tube to every home game in East London and quite a lot of away matches.
I sat with him at all hours of the day and night watching live games broadcast to the ship.
He was an encyclopaedia of football and the most committed fan I ever met of any team.
He took the banter in good faith and could certainly give it back.
