Asking for trouble saying this, but minus the pie & mash & the end excitement of green street, it was a far more nice & leisurely stroll back than scrambling about for Jubilee Line trains used to be at the old girl
As I have said a couple of times, personally I prefer the pre/post-match experience now because I never enjoyed it much at the Boleyn anyway. I usually drove there and didn't do much before or after, or if i didn't drive had to trek back to Plaistow. I never really enjoyed any of the pubs near the Boleyn (except the Central (which was in the wrong direction to my journey) and it was virtually impossible to get any decent grub

However, i appreciate that is very much a personal thing, and not reflected for many others

People saying 'Macclesfield are ****' ect are missing the point. It doesnt matter who you're playing, you spank someone 8-0 youve been a bunch of ruthless bastards. Good on everyone who played believing that 5, 6 or 7 wasnt good enough :thup:

Spot on. It would have been an easy option to take the foot right off the gas once the game was won, but we continued to totally dominate through to the end and showed a ruthlessness in our approach that has been all to rare in these sort of games in the past.

A very enjoyable match, great to see the introduction of youth into the team from start to finish, and great to come away with a good feeling from a home game for a change :thup:

Their "Premier League, you're having a laff" also stopped at around 4-0...

A reasonably good turnout last night - around 24k I reckon, quite a few of whom were in on "free" tickets, ones that come as part of their corporate deal, but at least they turned up.

Solid professional performance from us, you can only beat what's in front of you, and Snoddy ran the show. Good experience for a few youngsters to play in front of what for them would have been a large crowd - certainly comparable with the numbers who would have turned up at this stage of this competition at the Boleyn had we drawn the bottom team in the league. It made the homeward journey considerably shorter, with the 20 minute fast walk getting me straight on a train and back home for 10.40.

Grady Diagana did well for his goals but had previously missed a sitter, the Fredricks finish outstanding for his, and as for Snoddy, I could have banged one of his in with my todger, but they all count. Macclesfield offered nothing but the 300 or so of their supporters who made the journey will at least appreciate playing at their ground a little more. The grass isn't always greener.

A nice way to spend a warm, evening, we were West Ham's balmy army, albeit a relatively quiet one.

You have to be happy with 8-0 though.

Went with a neutral last night who said Rice was a clearly very composed and a cut above all of the rest of our players, he dominated the game when he came on.

Sat in 3 different places last night: 113, 110 and 212. Safe to say I will never buy a ticket in the upper tier, what a waste of money, the detachment from the game from up there is ridiculous.

At long last we have given a poor team a good beating. Thumbs up all-round.

We were in different seats to our usual, and it was nice to have a change of scenary. We enjoyed the night.........

Enjoyable evening.
Couple of beers on the roof top at Formans before the game, and then a quick stroll to the ground.
Good to see the squad players getting a run out and delighted for our three youngsters that played.
Rice best player on the park again, and he is still a 'youngster'.
Could have easily been double figures this one. Glad to see that we kept pressing and did not sit back and just enjoy the 3-0 that we took into the half.
Can't wait for the game against Man Utd on Saturday.Three games in a week for this ex-pat.

Antonio was enthusiastic throughout and looked to be getting back to the old level.

He seems to be one of those players who feels he has to score to contribute,therefore shooting inappropriately. Getting a goal will have settled him a bit.

How many times have we gone into a game like that and either struggled to break them down or conceded from a stupid mistake. We were ruthless and it's about time we were.

There was a bloke sitting in front of me that had £10 on West Ham to win 8-0 at 70/1. Everyone was over the moon for him. He must have been on a day release from a mental hospital though with that kind of bet!

Was the quickest I have ever got home. Stratford Station is alright with a 24k crowd

That’s terrible odds for that scoreline

I picked up a copy of the Metro this morning and ****ed straight to the back pages looking forward to reading the in depth analysis and enthusiastic gushing over our crushing victory but was (un)surprised to see that there wasn't even an article!

A two page spread on the rent boys beating the dippers, small articles on Spurs and Arsenals wins, but nothing at all about us.

I bet if we'd have lost there'd have been something.

You must have been sitting just to the right of me.
Guy was off his trolley...…..I bet he was glad the ref blew the final whistle bang on 90 minutes.

The Metro simply cover what their advertisers ask them to

It may have ‘only’ been Macclesfield, but it’s not often a professional match is won by such a score line. Arsenal played Lincoln and Sutton and didn’t have as much joy.

A confidence building win, goals to boost some of our other players, and a ruthless streak we never show.

Biggest score line of my lifetime. Well done to all.
