By Jacob, aged 8
Q1: When and where were you born?
I was born on 7th May 1961 in Barking, Essex.
What was the most exciting day of your childhood life?
When I went to Wembley to see my favourite football team, West Ham United, play in the F.A Cup final.
Q3: When was this?
In May 1975, just after my fourteenth birthday.
Q4: Who did you go with?
I went with two of my friends, Mark and Gary. We travelled from our house to Wembley by train.
Q5: Who did they play and did they win?
They played Fulham who were in a lower division of the league. They won 2-0, both goals were scored by the same player, Alan Taylor.
Q6: When you were at the match where did you sit?
We didn't sit down we stood on the terraces with the rest of the fans.
Q7: What was the atmosphere like?
There were a lot of people in the stadium. Everybody near me was very happy and singing 'I'm forever blowing bubbles' which is the West Ham song. It was one of the loudest things I have ever heard. When I got home I had lost my voice.
