The Big Match - Week 9
This week's Big Match comes from the corresponding weekend in season 1980/81.
It's West Ham United v Bolton Wanderers and the wonderfully eccentric hardware at the old Boleyn Ground.
West Ham played out between these marvellously distinctive goal frames foe decades and any time you saw them playing on TV you KNEW the game was at the Boleyn because of the stanchions.
Where now any similar totems of distinctive identity at West Ham?
