Farewell Boleyn

On Tuesday night, 112 years of history will come to an end as West Ham United play football at the Boleyn Ground in East London for the very last time.

The final game will see seventh-ranked Hammers take on fifth-ranked Manchester United with both clubs still in the frame for European qualification places.

The Londoner’s chances of grabbing fifth place in the Premier League were dealt a blow last weekend when they were defeated 4-1 at home by Swansea City, in what was their first league defeat on home soil since the opening day of the season.

As a result, Slaven Bilic’s men will have to win their last two games and hope that other results go their way on the final day if they are to feature in next terms European roster.

On what will undoubtedly be an emotional night, the Irons will be determined to go out on a high as they bid farewell to their home in Upton Park.

While the home side are still hoping to snatch a Europa League spot, visitors Manchester United have their eyes set on that all-important fourth place and a berth in next season’s Champions League campaign.

Unlike West Ham, the Red Devils fate currently lies in their own hands as they are just two points behind Manchester City with a game in hand. If they win their last two games, they will finish in at least fourth place at the expense of their city rivals.

When the teams met on this ground in the FA Cup back in April, it was Louis van Gaal’s men who prevailed by a 2-1 score-line.


West Ham have lost just one of their last 11 Premier League matches and that defeat came in their last game at home to Swansea City. The visitor’s away form in the league has been patchy, although they have now won two of their last three including a 1-0 win away to Manchester City.

You can back the Hammers to bid farewell to the Boleyn with a win at 23/10 with Betfair.
