It was a pleasure to have your team and supporters at our stadium for the MLS ASG. As I am traveling to London almost monthly these days I am keen to try and catch some Champion league games and would be eager to see your team again.

1) Can you advise if tickets are available for your home games or are you mostly sold out?

2) Is your stadium along a subway line as recent knee surgery is making a long walk more difficult these days?

Thanks in advance

LOL not at the Boleyn you wont! Well anytime soon anyway.
In answer to your questions are both Yes. You will want Upton Park station with just a quick walk down Green St

Thanks for the prompt response to my questions. Thought the chance of getting tickets would be a stretch but you don't know if you don't ask.

Good luck this year!

Thanks for taking the trouble to post those UG. I see an old (old) friend from east Anglia way there, back to the camera as usual! I also spotted someone I know in the pub pics towards the end. Check shirt. B****Y ???? Haven't seem him for years.

Just caught the end of "Premier League World" on Fox Soccer. They did a long story on WHU in Toronto and had several crowd shots/supporters coming in the gates shot. Caught what looked like Servo coming into the ground and what looked like Bobby Orangeboom in the crowd.
