Helped by stars as illustrious as Bobby Moore, Sir Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters, who began their careers in the 1960s, they have always played an attractive brand of football that has made them the darlings of East London and South Essex. Now in paperback, When Football Was Football: West Ham explores their colourful history and tells the story of some of their legendary stars and managers.
