Boleyn Ground Reviews
After wanting to visit this stadium for years i finally made it to one of the last games before it was knocked down. Great atmosphere that you don't get in modern stadiums, it will be missed more »
I miss this magnificent ground I managed most home games through the 80's paid with my paper round money. After many generations of my family going it was finally my turn My first game was Millwall..... more »
I love the Boleyn Ground. I would like to say I always had happy memories there but I’m a West Ham fan and I know that is not true! A proper football ground. COYI
It's not there anymore so I can't give it 5 stars as it's a housing estate. The new stadium I wouldn't give a much higher rating either though.
