West Ham bids farewell to Upton Park….

West Ham United's Upton Park stadium

West Ham will play their final competitive game at their famous 112-year home on tonight against Manchester United before their move to the 60,000-capacity London 2012 Olympics venue next season. The Hammers boss Slaven Bilic says it will be “impossible” to make the club’s new home of the Olympic Stadium a “fortress”. “When you played Arsenal at Highbury, it wasn’t dangerous but you felt it,” said Bilic. “Then we played against them at the Emirates and we enjoyed it; the players were taking selfies. “The Upton Park stadium was a first home. No matter where you move after that – if you move to a fancy apartment, a big house or to a mansion – your favourite one is always the first.”
