[Mark Noble] This is a family,

this ain't a football club.

When you come to this football

club, you get embraced.

You've given something back


that we'll never forget

and we're proud of that.


[man 1] Upton Park has been

my home, it's been my escape.

This is where it all started,

this is where it all happens,

and I don't really want

to leave this.

[man 2] This is not going

to be the same, not coming here

and not coming to this area

we're in...

Just really like,

a gut-wrenching feeling.

It's like you're splitting up

two brothers,

one's going away

over here somewhere

and then this one is

going to be, you know...

He's going to be

distraught there.

[Mark] My dad

always said to me,

"Mark, you're West Ham captain.

West Ham goes back

hundreds of years

and there's so much history

around it."

[crowd gasps]

[man 3] Brilliant ground,

and it's one of

the traditional grounds.

It's, like, pure football


[man 4] You've got characters

all around you.

Everywhere is a character.


Well, it's meant everything.

It's part of our life.

[man 5]

The Boleyn is what it is.

It's so historical,

Bit gutted, really.

[man 6] This is it,

one more game

and that's it for Upton Park.

[commentator] Tonight,

we're at the Boleyn ground,

which has hosted so many famous

cup games in its 112 years.

Tonight, West Ham face

Manchester United

in the FA Cup

quarterfinal replay.

The pub's gone. Hello, mate,

alright? Where's the pub gone?

Two years?

That's a liberty.

There's a fucking Tesco's!

The pub! Unbelievable.

What was it called,

the Green Gate, that was called?

Nothing's sacred any more.

In the players' bit here,

Joe, we kid our way in.

We ain't supposed to come

in here.

We just fanny our way in

all the time.

Cheers, Jeff.

- Where do you want?

- Up the end.

Why don't you put it there

so the Man United coach

can't come in?


We've got to go see Kim first.


Alright. Come on, boys.

Good evening.

- How are you?

- I'm very well, thank you.

Good girl.


You OK?

[clears throat]

Hello. You alright?

- How are you, Kim?

- Fine, thank you.

Here you are, my darling.

- You alright?

- Yeah. You?

- Yeah.

- What you been up to?

- Busy day.

- Yeah, I bet it is.

Fancy us tonight?

You fancy us tonight?

You're going

to let them get a goal?

Don't let them score.

Alright, babe,

I'll see you later.

Over Land and Sea, today's

issue, Over Land and Sea.

Only last few left today.

Last few left.


[man] It's the last

FA Cup game at Upton Park,

the Boleyn ground,

under lights.

We're playing well.

If we play as well as we played

against Arsenal,

there's no reason

why we can't win this game,

and even if it goes

to penalties, I fancy us.

So, you know, I just think

that there's something special

about this squad of players.

7-1, 11-5. Rooney's playing

tonight, ain't he?

I'm gonna have a little Marky

Noble to score. 5-1, Mark Noble.

- Hello, Mr. Chairman.

- Hi.

- How are you?

- I'm good. How are you?

- Two-nil, Mr. Chairman.

- Is that what you fancy?

- I fancy that.

- Let's hope you're right.

When I was a kid, the old south

end, nine times out of ten,

I'd sit over in the corner.

All the lunatics

would be up this end,

all the proper big boys.

A little firm would sit there

or stand most of the game

and give it

to the away supporters.

Going to miss it,

going to miss this immensely.

So, I'm bringing all the kids.

I'm bringing my grandchild

who'll be probably about 12

weeks old. He's got be blooded.
