George Hilsdon, 10 Ağustos 1885'te Bromley-by-Bow'da Donald Street'te doğdu. Çocukken Billy Bridgeman ile Marner Street Okulu'na gitti. 1897'de Hilsdon ailesi East Ham'a taşındı ve Plashet Lane Okulu'na gitti. Yetenekli bir futbolcu, okul tarafının kaptanı yapıldı.

Hilsdon, Londra Okulları Futbol Federasyonu tarafından başlatılan bölgelerarası yarışma olan Korint Kalkanı'nda East Ham Boys için orta yarıda oynadı. South Essex Mail, "George Hilsdon, Plashet'in çatlak orta yarısı, Corinthian Müsabakasında performans gösteren en iyi çocuklardan biri. Takdire şayan bir şekilde yönettiği East Ham takımı için muhteşem işler yapmıştı. . Korkusuzca müdahale eder ve forvetine isabetli bir şekilde yer verir. George, şutları çok sever ve her Korint maçında gol atmıştır."

Colm Kerrigan'ın yazarı Gatling Silahı George Hilsdon (1997), "George Hilsdon'ın 1900'de okuldan ayrılması ile 1904'ün başlarında yerel futboldaki ilk bilinen görünümü arasındaki üç buçuk yıl hakkında hiçbir şey bilinmiyor." O yıl Boleyn Kalesi futbol takımına katıldı. Kısa bir süre sonra Syd King tarafından bir Pazar Ligi maçında oynarken görüldü. 18 yaşındaki oyuncu, Kasım 1904'te West Ham United'a imza attı.

Hilsdon, kulüp için ilk maçında 11 Şubat 1905'te gol attı. Charlie Simmons, Herbert Bamlett, William McCartney, Jack Flynn, John Russell, Jack Fletcher, Billy Bridgeman, Christopher Carrick, George Hilsdon, Matt Kingsley'den oluşan bir takıma katıldı. , David Gardner, Len Jarvis ve Tommy Allison.

Hilsdon ayrıca Batı Ligi'nde Bristol Rovers'a karşı bir hat-trick yaptı. East End News şunları yazdı: "Maç, yarım düzine golün üçünden sorumlu olan yeni West Ham santrafor için büyük bir zaferdi ve Cartlidge gibi bir kaleciyi bir maçta üç kez yenmek, daha eski bir başarıdır. Hilsdon'ın gurur duyabileceğinden daha fazla bir el. Biraz daha fazla deneyimle, şüphesiz gerçekten birinci sınıf bir oyuncuya dönüşecektir."

17 Nisan 1905'te Hilsdon, Fulham'a karşı bir maçta yaralandı. Sezonun geri kalanında oynayamadı. Ancak, yedi maçta dört gol kaydettiği rekor, futbol kariyerine mükemmel bir başlangıç ​​oldu.

Hilsdon, 1905-06 sezonunun başında A takımda yoktu. Ancak, arka arkaya üç yenilgiden sonra Hilsdon, 30 Eylül 1905'te Brentford'a karşı şansını yakaladı. Gol alamamasına rağmen Hilsdon, West Ham United'ın 2-0 kazanmasına yardımcı oldu. Norwich City'ye karşı bir sonraki maçta da oynadı, ancak önceki sezondaki sakatlığının tekrarı, önümüzdeki altı hafta boyunca takımdan uzak kalması anlamına geliyordu.

Hilsdon, 25 Kasım'da Fulham'a karşı oynanan maçta ilk takıma geri döndü. Sıradaki yerini korudu ve sonraki iki maçta Queen's Park Rangers ve Bristol Rovers'a karşı gol attı. Ancak, sadece bir oyundan sonra yerine yeni imza atan Harry Stapley geldi. Ayrıca Billy Bridgeman ve Billy Grassam'dan gelen güçlü rekabetle karşı karşıya kaldı. Hilsdon, 14 Nisan 1906'da A takıma geri getirildi ve yine bir gol attı ve sezon sonunda dokuz maçta üç kez filelere vurdu.

Haziran 1906'da John Tait Robertson, Syd King'i Hilsdon'un Chelsea'ye ücretsiz bir transferle katılmasına izin vermeye ikna etti. Colm Kerrigan, yazarın Gatling Gun George Hilsdon (1997) şunları ileri sürmüştür: "Kurnaz Syd King'in neden onu bedelsiz olarak transfer etmeye istekli olduğunu anlamak zor. Belki de George'un sakatlığını başarıyla atlatmasından ümidini kesmişti. Santrafor olarak ve Bridgeman ve kısa süre önce geri dönen Billy Grassam şeklinde yetkin bir koruma ile, gelecekteki takım planlarında ona yer görmemiş olabilir."

Chelsea o sırada Futbol Ligi İkinci Ligi'ndeydi. Ayrıca büyük bir takipçi kitlesine sahiptiler ve önceki sezon Manchester United'a karşı oynanan maçta kulüp, o sırada bir lig maçı için gelmiş geçmiş en büyük Stamford Bridge'e 60.000'den fazla seyirci çekmişti. Ayrıca o sezonda 20.000 seyirciye daha fazla alan sağlama planları da vardı.

Hilsdon, yeni kulübü için ilk kez 1 Eylül 1906'da Glossop'a karşı oynadı. Fulham Observer, Hilsdon'ın Chelsea'nin 9-2'lik galibiyetinde beş gol atmasını "sansasyonel bir başlangıç" olarak nitelendirdi. Hilsdon artık belirgin bir adamdı ve yerel gazete Fulham Hilsdon'a karşı oynanan bir maçta "yaklaşık on dakika sonra müthiş bir hücum aldığını ve oyunun geri kalanında eski benliğinin bir gölgesi olarak etrafta dolaştığını bildirdi. devre arasında kıvranıyor ve acıyla bükülüyordu."

Colm Kerrigan tartışıyor Gatling Gun George Hilsdon Hilsdon o sezon sürekli olarak sert muamele gördü. Fulham Observer, Nottingham Forest Hilsdon'a karşı oynanan bir maçta "top doğrudan kendisine geldiği için hiçbir şey yapmanın zor olduğunu" bildirdi.

1906'da George Hilsdon, Whitechapel'de yaşayan İrlandalı göçmenlerin kızı Katherine Kelly ile evlendi. Çift, Fulham Palace Road'da yaşamaya başladı. Bir yıl sonra George adında bir oğlu doğdu. Daha sonra bir kızı Kathleen oldu.

Hilsdon, hızlı ve sert atış konusunda ün kazandı. West London Press, ligde Leicester City'ye attığı bir golü şöyle tanımladı: "Hilsdon, etrafındaki iki Leicester oyuncusunu sadece bir saniye kadar şaşırtan şaşırtıcı bir yan hareket yaptı, ancak bu kısa boşlukta Hilsdon, şaşırtıcı Lewis. En ufak bir spekülasyon unsuru içermeyen bir atıştı. Bu bir Hilsdon golüydü."

Kasım 1906'da kulüp programı, Hilsdon'un "Gatling-Gun George" başlıklı bir karikatür portresini içeriyordu. Ekteki makale, takma adın onun "durdurulamaz ve bir silahtan çıkan atışlar gibi hareket eden" atışından türetildiğine dikkat çekti.

George Hilsdon, Chelsea'nin Stamford Bridge'de Gainsborough Trinity'yi 4-1 mağlup ettiği karşılaşmada sezonun 27. golünü kaydetti. Bu galibiyet Chelsea'nin Birinci Lig'e yükselmesini garantiledi. S. B. Ashworth, Günlük posta, Hilsdon'un yakında İngiltere takımına seçileceğini öngördü: "Topa harika bir şekilde hakim oluyor, bir pivotun görevlerini iyi biliyor ve hepsinden önemlisi ölümcül bir şut."

Hilsdon sonraki sezon iyi durumda kaldı. Worksop Town'a karşı bir FA Cup beraberliğinde altı gol attığında kulüp için başka bir rekor kırdı. Hilsdon'ın o sezon ligde attığı 25 gol onu Manchester United'dan Sandy Turnbull ve Nottingham Forest'tan Enoch West ile eşit ikinci sıraya yerleştirdi. Ancak Chelsea, Birinci Lig'de mücadele etti ve sadece küme düşmekten kurtuldu.

Hilsdon, İngiltere adına ilk uluslararası kupasını 15 Şubat 1907'de İrlanda'ya karşı kazandı. O gün takımda Joe Bache, Tim Coleman, Bob Crompton, Sam Hardy ve William Wedlock vardı. Hilsdon 1-0 galibiyette gol atamadı ve takımdan çıkarıldı. Colm Kerrigan, "George kötü bir oyun geçirdi, ayağından sakatlandı. Bunun İrlandalıların onu oyundan atmak için kasıtlı bir girişimiyle sürdürüldüğü söylendi." Ancak Hilsdon daha sonra gol atmak için ayağının kaslarını sarstığını iddia etti.

Hilsdon, 1907-08 sezonuna Bury'ye karşı iç saha maçında gol atarak iyi bir formda başladı. Fulham Observer, "Hilsdon'ın Stamford Bridge'deki ilk golü Chelsea'ye atması çok uygundu ve filenin üst köşesini bulan ne muhteşem bir şuttu." Ertesi hafta Sheffield United'a karşı harika bir gol attı. Aynı gazete, Hilsdon'ın kalabalığa "savunma yoluyla yaptığı parlak vuruşlardan birine ve bunun sonucunda bir gol" muamelesi yaptığını bildirdi.

Hilsdon, Mart 1908'de İngiltere takımı için deneme için seçildi. Athletic News, Hilsdon ve Vivian Woodward'ın Kuzey ile 4-4 berabere kalan Güney takımında birlikte oynama biçiminden etkilendi. Gazete, bu "mükemmel kombinasyon George Hilsdon'un dört golü de atmasını sağladı" yorumunu yaptı. İrlanda'ya karşı oynamak için seçildi ve İngiltere'nin 3-1 galibiyetinde iki gol attı. Bunu Galler'in 7-1'lik bir çekiçlemesi izledi. Hilsdon bir kez daha iki gol kaydetti.

6 Haziran 1908'de Hilsdon, İngiltere'nin Avusturya'yı 6-1 mağlup ettiği maçta iki gol daha kaydetti. Bunu Macaristan'a karşı dört gol (7-1) ve Bohemya'ya karşı iki gol (4-0) izledi. Şimdi 7 uluslararası maçta 12 gol atmıştı. Fulham Observer, Hilsdon'un "şimdi İngiltere'nin kabul edilen en büyük santraforu olduğunu ve bugün muhtemelen herhangi bir büyük oyuncu tarafından eşi görülmemiş bir isabetliliğe sahip olduğunu" bildirdi.

Hilsdon, 13 Nisan 1909'da İrlanda'ya karşı oynadı. İki gol atmasına rağmen, Athletic News tarafından "hedefe yakın sonsuzlukta çok yetersiz" olduğu için eleştirildi. Bazı gazeteciler, Bert Freeman'ın İngiltere takımında Hilsdon'un yerini almayı hak ettiğini iddia etti. Seçiciler kabul etti ve Galler'e karşı İngiltere takımından çıkarıldı. 8 uluslararası maçta 14 gol kaydeden Hilsdon, bir daha asla ülkesi için forma giyemeyecekti.

20 Kasım 1909'da Hilsdon'un eski uluslararası meslektaşı Vivian Woodward Chelsea'ye transfer edildi. O sezon Hilsdon o kadar üretken değildi ve Chelsea Birinci Lig'den düştü.

Futbol gazetecileri Hilsdon'a sırt çevirmeye başladı. Fulham Observer bir maçtan sonra şunları söyledi: "Hilsdon, attığı tek gol dışında santraforda çok az şey yaptı. Belki de oyuna konsantre olamıyor." Reg Groves, "Gücü ve canlılığıyla fazla sosyal, fazla dikkatsiz hale gelmişti" iddiasında bulundu. Hilsdon'un ciddi bir içki sorunu yaşadığı ve A takımdan düşürüldüğü söylendi.

Chelsea formasıyla 164 maçta 107 gol attıktan sonra, Haziran 1912'de West Ham United'a dönmesine izin verildi. Fulham Observer şunları söyledi: "Normal şartlar altında, (Chelsea) uluslararası başka bir yere gitmeyi kabul etmeden önce muhtemelen yaklaşık dört rakam isterdi. Ancak garip görünse de Chelsea, Hilsdon'u West Ham'dan hiçbir ücret ödemeden aldı. Şart, eğer başka bir kulübe transfer edilirse, transfer ücretinin bir kısmının West Ham'a gitmesi gerektiğiydi... Son iki sezonda o formda düştü... muhtemelen West Ham'da daha mutlu olacak."

East Ham Echo, Hilsdon'ın evindeki ilk maçında "standın bir kısmından çok hoş olmayan açıklamalar yapmak zorunda kaldığını" bildirdi. Hilsdon sol içte, Fred Harrison orta forvette ve Danny Shea sağ içte oynadı. Kombinasyon birlikte iyi oynadı. East Ham Echo'nun belirttiği gibi: "Shea her zaman olduğu gibi iyi, Hilsdon'un piyasaya sürülmesinden bu yana yüzde 20 daha iyi."

15 Şubat 1913'te West Ham United, Southampton'da oynadı. East Ham Echo, "Hilsdon bir kez daha hücumun ustasıydı ve Hammers'ı bu sezon Güney Ligi tablosunda beşinci sıraya yerleştirmedeki payını tahmin etmek zor olurdu. "

West Ham, 1912-13 sezonunu Güney Ligi'nde 3. sırada tamamladı. George Hilsdon 36 kupa ve lig maçında 17 golle gol kralı oldu. Albert Denyer de 33 maçta 12 ile iyi bir performans sergiledi. Ancak, sezonun ikinci yarısında Danny Shea'nın gollerini açıkça kaçırdılar.

Hilsdon, 1913-14 sezonunun açılışında Millwall'a karşı bir gol attı. Richard Leafe, Swindon Town'a karşı bir sonraki maç için takıma alındı ​​ve 3-2'lik mağlubiyette iki golü de kaydetti. Leafe sonraki üç maçında gol atmaya devam etti.

22 Kasım 1913'te, yerel bir delikanlı olan Syd Puddefoot, Gillingham'a karşı takıma getirildi. West Ham 3-1 kazandı ve Puddefoot gollerden birini attı. John Northcutt ve Roy Shoesmith'in kitaplarında belirttiği gibi, West Ham United: Resimli Bir Tarih (1994): "19 yaşındaki Syd Puddefoot geldi ve ilk 11 maçında 13 kez fileleri buldu." Puddefoot'un formu, Hilsdon'ın takımdan atılmasına neden oldu.

Dan Bailey de formdaydı ve Hilsdon kendini ilk takımın dışında buldu. Richard Leafe ve Syd Puddefoot'taki sakatlıklar onu takıma geri getirdi ve 14 Nisan 1914'te Millwall'a karşı iki gol attı. East Ham Echo, Hilsdon'un "ünlü olduğu, ancak bizim elimizde olan müthiş şutlardan biriyle gol attığını bildirdi. çok az geç görüldü."

West Ham United, 1913-14 sezonunu 6. sırada tamamladı. Richard Leafe 21 golle gol kralı oldu. Syd Puddefoot 20 kupa ve lig maçında 16 ile listede ikinci oldu. Hilsdon 17 maçta sadece 6 gol attı.

Birinci Dünya Savaşı'nın patlak vermesine rağmen Futbol Ligi, 1914-15 sezonunun devam etmesine izin vermeye karar verdi. West Ham, Güney Ligi'ni ilk kez kazanabileceklerine dair büyük umutlara sahipti. Syd Puddefoot'ta ülkenin en umut verici genç golcüsüne sahiplerdi.

West Ham, ilk 12 maçının altısını kazandı. Syd Puddefoot bu 12 maçta 9 gol kaydetti. George Hilsdon ve Richard Leafe de formdaydı ve aralarında 7 sayı buldu. West Ham bir kez daha Güney Ligi şampiyonluğu için mücadele ediyordu.

Ekim 1914'te, Dışişleri Bakanı Lord Kitchener, savaşın ilk muharebelerinde ölenlerin yerini alacak gönüllüler çağrısında bulundu. 12 Aralık'ta William Joynson Hicks, Middlesex Alayı'nın 17. Servis (Futbol) Taburunu kurdu. Bu Futbol Taburu olarak tanındı. Birkaç üst düzey futbolcu bu tabura katıldı. Buna Frank Buckley, Walter Tull, Vivian Woodward ve Evelyn Lintott da dahildi. Eski bir asker olan Buckley, taburun komutanı oldu.

Futbol Federasyonu, evli olmayan tüm profesyonel futbolcuları silahlı kuvvetlere katılmaya çağırdı. Bazı gazeteler katılmayanların "Alman zaferine katkıda bulunduklarını" öne sürdüler. The Athletic News öfkeyle yanıt verdi: "Bütün ajitasyon, egemen sınıfların kitlelerin haftanın bir gününde eğlenceyi durdurma girişiminden başka bir şey değil... Yoksul adamın sporu ne umurlarında? Bu ülke için binlerce hayatları var. Çoğu durumda başka hiçbir şeyleri yok... Küçük bir azılı züppeler kliğine göre, bunlar otuz yıldan fazla bir süredir sahip oldukları tek oyalanmadan mahrum bırakılmalıdır."

Tower Hamlets Misyonu'nu kuran zengin bira üreticisinin oğlu Frederick Charrington, West Ham oyuncularına, diğerleri Batı Cephesinde savaşırken futbol oynadıkları için para aldıkları için kadınsı ve korkak oldukları için saldırdı.

West Ham oyuncuları, silahlı kuvvetlere katılma çağrısına yanıt verdi. Jack Tresadern Kraliyet Garnizon Topçusu'na katıldı. Parlamento İşe Alım Komitesinin üç üyesi Upton Park'ı ziyaret etti ve devre arasında gönüllüler için çağrıda bulundu. West Ham United kalecisi Joe Webster, bu çağrı sonucunda Futbol Taburu'na katılan isimlerden biriydi. Hilsdon takımda oynamaya devam etti ve 1914-15 sezonunda 20 maçta 5 gol attı.

Lig maçlarına katılım, Birinci Dünya Savaşı'nın etkisiyle sezonun ikinci yarısında önemli ölçüde düştü. Güney Ligi'nin 1915-16 sezonunda faaliyet göstermemesine karar verildi. Futbolcuların bir sezonda sadece bir sezon oynamak için sözleşmeleri olduğu için artık işsizdiler. İngiltere'deki 5.000 profesyonel futbolcunun yaklaşık 2.000'inin silahlı kuvvetlere katıldığı tahmin ediliyor. Buna Doğu Surrey Alayı'na katılan George Hilsdon da dahildi. Batı Cephesinde görev yaptı, 1917'de Arras'ta bir hardal gazı saldırısına katlanmak zorunda kaldı. Bu, ciğerlerine ciddi şekilde zarar verdi ve savaştan sonra kısa bir süre Chatham Town için oynamasına rağmen. 1919'da altı maçta 14 gol attı ama sonunda oyundan çekilmek zorunda kaldı.

1924'te Hilsdon, popüler bir vodvil gösterisi olan Fred Karno's Troup'a katıldı. Şirketi ülke çapında dolaşırken tanıtmanın bir yöntemi, gösterinin oyuncuları ile bazı yerel kuruluşlar arasında bir hayır amaçlı futbol maçı düzenlemekti.

Colm Kerrigan'a göre, yazar Gatling Gun George Hilsdon (1997) şunları iddia etti: "Yıllarca süren başarı, East End'deki hayatta kalma ruhunu azaltmadı ve yaşamını çeşitli şekillerde kazıdı, bilindiği kadarıyla, hepsi yasanın doğru tarafında - ama bazen sadece adil. Kasvetli bir dönemde yaptığı kaçamaklardan biri, birkaç East End barını dolaşmak, çikolata kutuları çekilişi yapmak, ancak ödülü her fırsatta karısının kazanması için ayarlamaktı.

George Hilsdon, 10 Eylül 1941'de Leicester'de öldü. Cenazesine sadece dört kişi katıldı (oğlu, kızı, damadı ve torunu). Cenaze masrafları Futbol Federasyonu tarafından karşılandı.


จอร์จ ฮิลส์ดัน

1906'da West Ham United'dan bir forvet olarak imzalandı, ancak yönetici John Tait Robertson, Hilsdon'un bir santrafor olarak oynama potansiyeline sahip olduğundan emindi. Haklıydı.

George, Chelsea kariyerine muhteşem bir başlangıç ​​yaptı ve ilk maçında Glossop North End'i 9-2 yenerek beş gol attı. Ona 'Gatling Gun' lakabını kazandıran bir performanstı. İlk sezonunda 27 gol attı ve kulübün ilk terfimize ulaşmasına yardımcı oldu.

George, bir sonraki sezonda neredeyse aynı derecede üretkendi, 26 lig golü ve bir maçta altı gol atarak, Worksop Town karşısında bir FA Cup galibiyeti elde etti. Bir oyuncu tarafından bir maçta altı gol, kulüp rekoru olarak kalır. Üç yıl sonra 106 maçta 86 gol kaydetti. Şimdiye kadar bir İngiltere uluslararasıydı ve sekizi İngiltere'nin ilk denizaşırı turunda olmak üzere sekiz uluslararası maçında 14 gol attı.

Bundan sonra, George'un Chelsea kariyeri, yaralanmalar ve alkolizm yüzünden mahvoldu, ancak toplam 108 gol onu kulübün tüm zamanlar listesinde dokuzuncu sırada yer aldı. Üç yıl sonra 1912'de kariyerinin Birinci Dünya Savaşı'nın patlak vermesiyle sona erdiği West Ham United'a yeniden katılmasına izin verildi.

Hilsdon, Stamford Bridge'de yerdeki bir özellik olan rüzgar gülü tarafından ölümsüzleştirildi.

DAVID BAILLIE (1925-1929) Bu gün doğdu Ilford, Essex

Net-minder, kariyerine 1925'te büyük Ted Hufton'ın yedeği olarak West Ham'a imza atmadan önce lig dışı Croyton FC ile başladı.

George Hilsdon : West Ham United - Tarih

1913 F A kupasında büyük üzüntüler olsa da, Lig Şampiyonluğu için mücadele eden iki takım arasında daha önce hiç görülmemiş bir kupa finali yaşandı. Lig ikincisi Aston Villa, finalde ilk kez bir penaltı kaçırdığı kötü huylu bir karşılaşmada şampiyonluk yarışını Sunderland'e kaybetmenin intikamını aldı. İlk iki kupa finali yetmiş üç yıl daha tekrarlanmayacak.

İlk tur: 11 Ocak 1913

Golcüler: Harold Roe <30>, Bert Morley

Bristol Gezicileri: 1:, 2:, 3:, 4:, 5:, 6:,ه: Billy Peplow,و: James Shervey, 9: Harold Roe, 10:Phillips,11:Bill Palmer

Güney Ligi mücadelecileri Bristol Rovers, önceki on yılda üç kez üst düzey muhalefetle karşılaştı ve her seferinde kıl payı kaybetti. Bu sefer bir Notts County takımıyla karşı karşıya kaldılar ve ligdeki deplasmanda küme düşmelerini garanti altına alacaktı ve kupa onları arka arkaya sezonlarda Southern League Swindon karşısında alçalttı. Rover'lar Swindon değildi, ancak ilk tur beraberliklerinin sekizinin havaya düştüğü ve diğer altısının da terk edilmesi gerektiği bir günde, ziyaretçiler için bir eşleşmeden fazlasıydı. Harold Roe düzgün bir şekilde onları yola göndermek için bir köşeye yöneldi, ancak takım halinde yağmurda Eastville, James Shervey tarafından başka bir köşeyle karşılaşana kadar gergin bir yer olarak kaldı, talihsiz Bert Morley ağlara yardım edene kadar şutu auta gidiyor gibi görünüyordu. Rover'ın kupa yarışı ikinci turda diğer lig üyesi olmayan Norwich'i mağlup ederek devam etti, ancak üçüncü turda Everton tarafından 0-4 geriye düştüler.

Huddersfield Kasabası 3-1 Sheffield United

İlk tur: 15 Ocak 1913

İkinci bölüm Huddersfield daha önce hiç ilk raundun ötesine geçmemişti ve United 1-2'yi geride bırakarak ilk tur beraberliklerinin son on dakikasına girerken bu rekor devam ediyor gibiydi. Sonra doğa ana devreye girdi ve ülke genelinde hakim olan kar fırtınası koşulları, hakemi beraberliği terk etmeye zorlayacak kadar kötüleşti. Dört gün sonra, eski İskoçya ve Newcastle yıldızı Jimmy Howie liderliğindeki Huddersfield, United'ı etkileyici bir şekilde kenara çekti.Armour'un ortası Mann'a golü açma şansı verdi, önce Jee ne yazık ki aradan önce farkı ikiye katlama şansını kaçırdı. çapraz çubuk. Tom Elliott, maçın iki-nil'ini yaptığı vuruştan doğruca mücadele ederek ikinci priod için mükemmel bir başlangıç ​​yaptı. Sandy Mutch, topu Gillespie'nin ayağına düşürdüğünde birinci lige bir can simidi verdi ama United'ın canlanması, Elliott maçın ikincisini aldığında öldü. Kasaba, ikinci turda Güney Ligi Swindon tarafından üzüldü, ancak yirmili yılların başında Sandy Mutch ve Frank Mann'in 1922'de kupa kazanan madalyaları kazanmasıyla domine edecek bir tarafın tohumları ekiliyordu.

West Bromwich Albion 0-3 West Ham United

Birinci tur, ikinci tekrar: 22 Ocak 1913

Golcüler: Gorge Hilsdon <8, 44>, Bertie Denyer (49>)

West Ham, iki yıl önce az bilinen bir doğu Londra tarafı olmaktan, son iki kupa müsabakasında dört Birinci lig kafa derisi elde etmelerinin küçük bir kısmı sayesinde başkentin en ünlü taraflarından birine gitmişti. Geçen sezonun kupa finalistleriyle olan bu beraberlik, Albion Cumartesi günü kutup havasına kurban gitmişti, ancak iki gün sonra tekrar oynandı ve berabere bitti. Tekrarda ev sahibi avantajı ile umutlar yüksekti, ancak Albion 2'yi zorladı. 2 draw with the FA opting, a little surprisingly to stage the second replay at Chelsea's Stamford Bridge, rather than opting for a neutral city venue. The Southern League side got off to a great start through George Hilsdon and two well timed goals either side of half time sealed Albion's fate. The Hammers thus earned a trip to title chasing Aston Villa in the second round where they went down 0-5, the Villains going on to win the cup. George Hilsdon had started out at Upton Park before being virtually given to Chelsea nine years earlier. The man who became known as "Gattling gun" Hilsdon scored the goal which propelled the Stamford Bridge outfit into the top flight and earned him international honours with England. Hilson began to lose form though and there were rumours that he was battling with alcoholism by the time Chelsea sold him back to West Ham to replace their previous hero Danny Shea who had moved on to Blackburn. Like so many of his colleagues, the war virtually ended Hilsdon's career as he suffered lung damage when gassed at Arras in 1917. His existance was a meagre one after that, at one time being part of the famous Fred Karno troupe while he also ran a pub lottery scam in which the prize, sually a box of chocolates was always won by his wife. Hilsdon died in 1941, almost forgotten by all who saw him in his playing days with just four relatives attending his funeral in an unmarked grave.

Reading 1-0 Tottenham Hostpur

Reading fans had been waiting twelve years for revenge over Tottenham in the cup as their faithful hadn't forgotten Tottenham defender, Sandy Tait punching the ball off the line during their 1-1 draw in the 1901 competition. The referee missed it, Reading didn't get the late penalty that would surely have taken them into the semi finals, and Tottenham won the replay. To make matters worse Spurs then also destroyed a hapless West Bromwich Albion side in the semi final and went on to win the cup. Reading fans remained convinced that if justice had been served in the quarter final then their heroes would have achieved the same results against Albion and Sheffield United. Tottenham fans however could rightly point to the trophy itself which has thier name inscribed upon it in 1901 and say that the rest is all just ifs buts and maybes. They couldn't begrudge Reading's tiny moment of revenge however with this cup upset as Reggie Pinfield settled a largely uneventful tie at Elm Park in which the first leaguers dominated for seventy minutes without ever troubling the Reading defence. Strangely Reading's best spell of the game came only after they had been effectively reduced to ten men with Jack Smith manfully playing on despite having broken a rib. Reading got the perfect draw in round three as they welcommed League Champions Blackburn to Elm Park and for a time another shock was on when Joe Bailey put them in front but Rovers quickly levelled and ground Reading down to win the tie in the second half.

Third round: 22nd February 1913

Scorers: : Jimmy Smith <20>, David Howie <51>, : Sam Kirkman

The only club in the history of the Football League to have the name of their ground in brackets in their name. Officially though the club were always referred to as simply Bradford by the press while the club known by that moniker today were always referred to as Bradford City, much like the Dundee clubs today. Bradford lived in the shadow of their neighbours across the city, a task made more difficult by the fact that soccer in general lived in the shadows in a rugby league hotbed. Bradford's progress to their first ever appearance in the third round had all been on home soil, knocking out Lancashire Combination side Barrow in a replay, having bought home advantage after being held in the first game before second division Wolves were easily sent packing in round two. The visit of Sheffield Wednesday would be only the second time a top flight club had visited Park Avenue, the previous being neighours City who had left victorious by the only goal in the previous year's competition. Wednesday were flying in the top flight though, tied with three other teams at the top of the table and really fancying their chances of the league and cup double. Bradford dominated the first half and deservedly took the lead when Spoors was caught flat footed by Smith, who fired home. And it should have been two before soone after but for the referee not being sharp enough to notice that Teddy Davison carried the ball over the line when stoppng Tommy Little's shot. Bradford looked like they would be made to pay for that when Sam Kirkman levelled but the home side weren't to be outdone and in a blistering second half netted the winning goal through David Howie. Few Bradford fans were too upset when Aston Villa easily despatched them in the next round.

Burnley 3-1 Middlesbrough

Third round: 22nd February 1913

Scorers:  Teddy Hodgson <30>, Bert Freeman <59>, <80>: Edmund Eyre

Promotion chasing Burnley's contest with Middlesbrough had the football specials rolling into the town all morning and when the Clarets fell behind midway through the first half the travelling Boro fans thought that it was job done. Bert Freeman was the difference as the ex Everton man set up the equaliser for Teddy Hodgson before scoring twice in a heated and frantic second half to set up a dream trip to local rivals and defending League champions Blackburn in the quarter finals.

Burnley: 1:Jerry Dawson, 2:Tom Bamford, 3:David Taylor, 4:Willie McLaren, 5:Tommy Boyle, 6:Billy Watson, 7. 8:Dick Lindley, 9:Bert Freeman, 10:Teddy Hodgson, 11:William Husband

Blackburn Rovers 0-1 Burnley

Quarter final: 8th March 1913

At Ewood Park, a fortnight after the victory over Middlesbrugh, Burnley pulled off a huge result against their local rivals, and League Champions Blackburn. Unsurprisingly Rovers had by far the better of things but the crucial goal came from Tommy Boyle on the half hour before Jerry Dawson took on a man of the match role. The Burnley keeper repeatedly foiled the Rovers front line with the best chance coming right at the death when Jock Simpson had a great chance only to get his feet tangled. To the delight of the travelling Burnley contingent, who outnumbered the home fans and cheered wildly as the shot went out for a throw.Burnley held the champions elect Sunderland to a replay in the semi final before losing a cracker of a replay 2-3. Promotion was achieved at the end of the season and Burnley returned to Ewood Park for a league encounter on New Year's day 1914 where they left with a point, while Middlesbrough took revenge for their cup exit at Turf Moor in April. Not that the Burnley fans cared that much as Bertie Freeman scored the winner against Liverpool later that month in the cup final with Bamford, Taylor, Boyle and Lindley also picking up winner's medals.

Burnley: 1:Jerry Dawson, 2:Tom Bamford, 3:David Taylor, 4. 5:Tommy Boyle, 6:Willie McLaren, 7:Billy Watson, 8:Dick Lindley, 9:Bert Freeman, 10:Teddy Hodgson, 11:William Husband

Who is Chelsea's all-time top scorer?

Chelsea certainly boast an illustrious list when it comes to the subject of all-time top scorers.

Many iconic names have featured for the Blues across the years.

But only a select few have smashed a century of goals for the club.

Here are the top ten marksmen in Chelsea’s history.

Frank Lampard (211)

Frank Lampard’s legacy will echo around Stamford Bridge until football ceases to exist (which nearly happened thanks to the Super League).

211 goals in 648 appearances cements him as Chelsea’s record goal scorer, surpassing Bobby Tambling’s tally in 2013.

Bobby Tambling (202)

Up until Lampard smashed home against Aston Villa, Tambling was the Blues highest goal getter for over 40 years.

He netted on his debut in 1959 and didn’t stop until he left to join Crystal Palace in 1970.

Kerry Dixon (193)

Coming in a close third is the legendary Kerry Dixon.

In his first season with Chelsea, he scored 34 goals and was swiftly up to 70 in 101 games with another fine haul the following year.

Didier Drogba (164)

A man who needs no introduction to the Blues faithful.

Didier Drogba arrived in 2004 from Marseille as a highly rated striker. He left South West London as one of the Premier League’s greatest ever forwards. Plus he scored that header in Munich…

Roy Bentley (150)

Very few players can manage one campaign as the club’s top scorer. Roy Bentley did it consecutively seven times after joining Chelsea in 1948.

Bentley sadly passed away in 2018, but memories of his footballing excellency will live on forever.

Peter Osgood (150)

Tied with Bentley in fifth place is the oh so good Peter Osgood.

Another Chelsea great who tragically left us in 2006, a statue outside the Bridge was erected of Osgood for his iconic services to the team.

Jimmy Greaves (132)

Here’s a stat for you. Jimmy Greaves scored 114 goals for the Blues youth side before becoming a senior pro.

Unfortunately, that didn’t count towards his final sum, which rests at 132.

George Mills (125)

A special place in the heart of Chelsea fans will always be reserved for George Mills.

He was the first man to score a century of league goals for the club and was the last player for the Blues to score a hattrick against Liverpool.

Eden Hazard (110)

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Eden Hazard moved to Real Madrid in 2019.

The Brilliant Belgian bagged 110 goals across a sensational seven-year period. You’re always welcome back at the Bridge, Eden.

George Hildson (108)

George Hilsdon’s name is one for the history books.

He was the first centurion goal scorer for Chelsea, netting 27 goals in his maiden season to help the Blues to their inaugural league promotion.

Nathaniel is a football journalist who graduated from the University of Derby. He has worked at Burton Albion as part of their media team for two years. Nathaniel produces regular articles for the club’s official website and match-day programme. He covered the 2018 U20 Women’s World Cup in Brittany and has reported from grounds ranging from non-league up to the Premier League.

The Strange Case of George Hilsdon

On another thread I have written about how West Ham have always sold their best young players in order to make a profit for the club owners. However, in June 1906, Syd King, gave away one of West Ham's best ever prospects, George Hilsdon, to Chelsea. It is difficult to explain this action unless King received a backhander.

Hilsdon, who was 18 years old at the time, signed for West Ham United in November 1904. Hilsdon scored in his first game for the club on 11th February, 1905. Hilsdon also scored a hat-trick in a Western League game against Bristol Rovers. The East End News reported: "The match was quite a triumph for the new West Ham centre-forward, who was responsible for three of the half a dozen goals, and to beat a goalkeeper like Cartlidge thrice in one match is an achievement an older hand than Hilsdon might be proud of. With a little more experience, he will doubtless develop into a really first class player."

On 17th April 1905 Hilsdon was injured in a game against Fulham. He was unable to play for the rest of the season. However, his record of four goals in seven games, was an excellent start to his football career. In June 1906, John Tait Robertson, persuaded Syd King to let Hilsdon join Chelsea on a free transfer. Colm Kerrigan, the author of Gatling Gun George Hilsdon (1997) has argued that: "It is difficult to understand why the shrewd Syd King was willing to let him go on a free transfer." Aslında. At the same time, King gave away another extremely promising player, Billy Bridgeman, to Chelsea. As it happens, both Hilsdon and Bridgeman played football for Marner Street School. Bridgeman went on to play 160 games for Chelsea.

Hilsdon played for his new club for the first time against Glossop on 1st September 1906. The Fulham Observer described it as "a sensational debut" as Hilsdon scored five goals in Chelsea's 9-2 victory. Hilsdon was now a marked man and the local newspaper reported that in a game against Fulham Hilsdon "got a terrific charge after about ten minutes, and for the rest of the game wandered about, a shade of his former self. In the dressing room at half-time he was writhing and twisting with pain."

Colm Kerrigan argues in Gatling Gun George Hilsdon that Hilsdon constantly received rough treatment that season. The Fulham Observer reported that in a game against Nottingham Forest, Hilsdon "found it difficult to do anything, as directly the ball came in his direction three opponents were on his track".

Hilsdon got a reputation for fast and hard shooting. The West London Press described a goal he scored against Leicester City in the league: "Hilsdon made a bewildering side movement which just for a second or so nonplussed the two Leicester players around him, but in that brief space Hilsdon had flashed the ball past the astounding Lewis. It was a shot without the slightest element of speculation. It was a Hilsdon goal."

In November 1906 the club programme included a cartoon portrait of Hilsdon entitled "Gatling-Gun George". The accompanying article pointed out that the nickname derived from his shooting "that are simply unstoppable and which travel like shots from a gun."

George Hilsdon scored his 27 goal of the season in Chelsea's 4-1 win over Gainsborough Trinity at Stamford Bridge. This win guaranteed Chelsea promotion to the First Division. S. B. Ashworth, writing in the Daily Mail, predicted that Hilsdon would soon be selected for the England team: "He commands the ball wonderfully, has a fine conception of a centre's duties, and above all, is a deadly shot."

Hilsdon remained in good form the following season. He created another record for the club when he scored six goals in a FA Cup tie against Worksop Town. Hilsdon's 25 league goals that season placed him equal second with Sandy Turnbull of Manchester United and Enoch West of Nottingham Forest.

Hilsdon won his first international cap for England against Ireland on 15th February 1907. Hilsdon failed to score in the 1-0 victory and was dropped from the team. Colm Kerrigan argues that "George had a poor game, handicapped by a foot injury. It was rumoured that it was sustained through a deliberate attempt by the Irish to put him out of the game." However, Hilsdon later claimed that he had jarred the muscles of his foot shooting for goal.

Hilsdon was selected for the trial for the England team in March 1908. The Athletic News was impressed with the way that Hilsdon and Vivian Woodward played together in the South team that drew 4-4 with the North. The newspaper commented that this "superb combination enabled George Hilsdon to shoot all the four goals." He was selected to play against Ireland and scored two goals in England's 3-1 victory. This was followed by a 7-1 hammering of Wales. Once again Hilsdon scored two goals.

On 6th June 1908 Hilsdon scored another two goals in England's 6-1 victory over Austria. This was followed by four goals against Hungary (7-1) and two against Bohemia (4-0). He had now scored 12 goals in 7 internationals. The Fulham Observer reported that Hilsdon was "now England's acknowledged greatest centre-forward and had acquired an accuracy of aim probably unequalled by any great player today."

Hilsdon played against Ireland on 13th April 1909. Despite scoring two goals he was criticised by the Athletic News for being "very deficient in deadliness near the goal". Hilsdon who had scored an amazing 14 goals in 8 international games, was never to play for his country again.

Football journalists began to turn on Hilsdon. The Fulham Observer reported after one game: "Hilsdon did very little at centre-forward with the exception of the one goal he scored. Perhaps he is unable to concentrate on the game." Reg Groves claimed: "He had become too sociable, too careless with his strength and vitality". It was rumoured that Hilsdon had a serious drink problem and he was dropped from the first-team.

After scoring 107 goals in 164 games for Chelsea he was allowed to return to West Ham United in June 1912. The Fulham Observer reported: "Under normal circumstances, they (Chelsea) would probably want nearly four figures before consenting to the international going elsewhere, but strange as it may seem, Chelsea acquired Hilsdon from West Ham without any fee at all, the stipulation being that if he were transferred to another club a proportion of the transfer fee should go to West Ham. During the last two seasons he has declined in form. he will probably be happier at West Ham."

The East Ham Echo reported that during his first home game Hilsdon "had to run the gauntlet of some very uncomplimentary remarks from part of the stand". Hilsdon played at inside-left, with Fred Harrison at centre-forward and Danny Shea at inside-right. The combination played well together. As the East Ham Echo pointed out: "Good as Shea has always been, he is 20 per cent better since the introduction of Hilsdon."

On 15th February 1913 West Ham United played Southampton. The East Ham Echo reported that: "Hilsdon was once more the master-mind of the attack, and it would be difficult to estimate his share in placing the Hammers fifth in the Southern League table this season as against twelfth at the same period last year."

West Ham finished the 1912-13 season in 3rd place in the Southern League. George Hilsdon ended up top scorer with 17 goals in 36 cup and league games. However, the following season he began hitting the bottle and he lost his form and his place in the team.

In October 1914, the Secretary of State, Lord Kitchener, issued a call for volunteers to both replace those killed in the early battles of the war. On 12th December William Joynson Hicks established the 17th Service (Football) Battalion of the Middlesex Regiment. This became known as the Football Battalion.

The Football Association called for all professional footballers who were not married, to join the armed forces. Some newspapers suggested that those who did not join up were "contributing to a German victory." The Athletic News responded angrily: "The whole agitation is nothing less than an attempt by the ruling classes to stop the recreation on one day in the week of the masses . What do they care for the poor man's sport? The poor are giving their lives for this country in thousands. In many cases they have nothing else. These should, according to a small clique of virulent snobs, be deprived of the one distraction that they have had for over thirty years."

Frederick Charrington, the son of the wealthy brewer who had established the Tower Hamlets Mission, attacked the West Ham players for being effeminate and cowardly for getting paid for playing football while others were fighting on the Western Front.

It was decided that the Football League would not operate in the 1915-16 season. As football players only had contracts to play for one season at a time, they were now out of work. It has been estimated that around 2,000 of Britain's 5,000 professional footballers now joined the armed forces. This included George Hilsdon who joined the East Surrey Regiment. He served on the Western Front, had to endure a mustard gas attack at Arras in 1917. This badly damaged his lungs and although he played briefly for Chatham Town after the war. He scored 14 goals in six games in 1919 but he was eventually forced to retire from the game.

In 1924 Hilsdon joined Fred Karno's Troup, a popular vaudeville act. One method of publicizing the company as it travelled round the country was to arrange a charity football match between the cast of the show and some local organization.

According to Colm Kerrigan, the author of Gatling Gun George Hilsdon (1997) argued: "Years of success had not dampened his East End spirit of survival, and he scraped a living in various ways, all of them, insofar as is known, on the right side of the law - but sometimes only just. One of his escapades, during a bleak period, was to go around several East End pubs, raffling boxes of chocolates, but arranging for the prize to be won on every occasion by his wife."

George Hilsdon died in Leicester on 10th September, 1941. Only four people attended his funeral (son, daughter, son-in-law and grandson). The funeral was paid for by the Football Association.


The Academy of Football

The club promotes the popular idea of West Ham being "The Academy of Football", with the moniker adorning the ground's new stadium façade. The comment predominantly refers to the club's youth development system which was established by manager Ted Fenton during the 1950s, that has seen a number of international players emerge through the ranks. [ 69 ] Most notably the club contributed three players to the World Cup winning England side of 1966 including club icon Bobby Moore, as well as Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst who between them scored all of England's goals in the eventual 4–2 victory. Other academy players that have gone on to play for England have included Trevor Brooking, Alvin Martin, Tony Cottee and Paul Ince.

Since the late 1990s Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, Michael Carrick and Glen Johnson began their careers at the club and all are playing for one of the "Big Four" clubs. Most recently the likes of first team midfield regulars Mark Noble and Jack Collison and younger stars Freddie Sears, Junior Stanislas, James Tomkins, Josh Payne, Jordan Spence and Zavon Hines have emerged through the Academy. Frustratingly, for the fans and managers alike, [ 70 ] the club has struggled to retain many of these players due to (predominantly) financial [ 71 ] reasons. West Ham, during the 2007–08 season, had an average of 6.61 English players in the starting line up, higher than any other Premier League club, [ 72 ] which cemented their status as one of the few Premier League clubs left that were recognised to be bringing through young English talent and were recognised as having 'homegrown players'. Between 2000 and 2011, the club produced eight England players, as many as Manchester United and one fewer than Arsenal. [ 73 ] Much of the success of The Academy has been attributed to Tony Carr who has been West Ham youth coach since 1973. [ 74 ]


Match Preview: West Ham v Chelsea

2nd May 1988 – with S-Express at number one with ‘Theme from S-Express’ and Wall Street in UK cinemas, West Ham United met Chelsea for the final game at Upton Park of the 1987/88 season in front of 28,521.

Prior to kick-off, Stewart Robson was named Hammer of the Year, with Billy Bonds runner-up. The Irons, needing a win to secure top flight survival, broke the deadlock in the 16th minute – Mark Ward found Leroy Rosenior (pictured) who swivelled and fired beyond Kevin Hitchcock from just inside the area. The pair were involved again for the second goal 20 minutes later, Ward producing excellent work in his own half before sending Rosenior clear with a delightful ball in behind the Chelsea rearguard, the striker slotting past Hitchcock to double the lead.

Hammers defender Paul Hilton scored the third on 57 minutes after Tony Dorigo had blocked Rosenior’s header following Tony Gale’s flick-on from a corner. Rosenior turned from hero to villain when he lashed out at future West Ham assistant manager Steve Clarke and was sent off. Substitute Colin West reduced the arrears for Chelsea from a corner but Tony Cottee restored the three-goal advantage, making it 4-1 with a late header from a Ward cross. Cottee would be the club’s top scorer in 1987/88 with 15 goals from 44 matches. The goals, and end-of-season presentations, can be viewed in my video below.

The Hammers would finish 16th in 1987/88 while Chelsea would finish 18th. Liverpool won the league title and Wimbledon won the FA Cup.

West Ham United: Tom McAlister, Steve Potts, Paul Hilton, Tony Gale, Julian Dicks, Mark Ward, Stewart Robson, Alan Dickens, George Parris, Leroy Rosenior, Tony Cottee.

Chelsea: Kevin Hitchcock, Gareth Hall, Steve Clarke, Steve Wicks, Tony Dorigo, John Bumstead, Micky Hazard (Colin West), Joe McLaughlin, Pat Nevin, Gordon Durie, Kerry Dixon.

Kulüp Bağlantıları

A decent number of players have represented both West Ham United and Chelsea. Victor Moses spent the 2015/16 season on loan with the Hammers and has proved a key player in recent seasons for the Blues. Others to have worn the colours of both clubs include:

Goalkeepers: Craig Forrest and Harry Medhurst.

Defenders: Tal Ben Haim, Scott Minto, Wayne Bridge, Ian Pearce, Joe Kirkup, Glen Johnson and Jon Harley.

Midfielders: Bill Jackson, Frank Lampard Junior, Andy Malcolm, Syd Bishop, Peter Brabrook, Alan Dickens, George Horn, Eric Parsons, Robert Bush, Scott Parker, Yossi Benayoun, Joe Cole, Jim Frost and John Sissons.

Strikers: David Speedie, Len Goulden, Billy Bridgeman, Demba Ba, Joe Payne, Clive Allen, George Hilsdon, Carlton Cole, Billy Brown, Jimmy Greaves, Pop Robson, Billy Williams, Ron Tindall and Bob Deacon.

Gianfranco Zola played for Chelsea and managed West Ham, while Sir Geoff Hurst and Dave Sexton both played for the Hammers and managed the Blues. Bobby Gould played for West Ham and went on to be assistant and caretaker manager of Chelsea. Avram Grant has managed both clubs.

Today’s focus is on a former Chelsea defender who went on to manage West Ham United. Ron Greenwood was born on the 11th November 1921 in Worsthorne, Burnley but moved to London as a child during the 1930s Depression. He was educated at the Wembley County Grammar School, which now forms part of Alperton Community School in Middlesex, leaving at the age of 14 to become an apprentice sign-writer – a centre-half, Greenwood initially joined Chelsea as an amateur whilst serving his apprenticeship. He served with an RAF mobile radio unit in France during World War Two. Greenwood joined Bradford Park Avenue in 1945 and made 59 league appearances over the next four seasons. In 1949, he moved to the club he supported as a boy, Brentford, his £9,500 fee breaking the club’s incoming transfer record. He made 147 appearances and scored one goal. Greenwood was never capped for his country, though he did make a single ‘B’ team appearance for England whilst at Brentford, in a 1-0 victory in the Netherlands on 23rd March 1952.

The 30-year-old Greenwood joined Ted Drake’s Chelsea in October 1952. He made his debut in a 2-1 home win over Tottenham on 25th October 1952 and made 11 First Division appearances as Chelsea avoided relegation by one point. He played a bigger role in 1953/54, making 34 appearances in all competitions as the Blues improved to finish eighth in the top flight. Greenwood made 21 appearances as Chelsea won the First Division title in 1954/55, the first major trophy in their history. His final appearance for the club came on Christmas Day 1954 in a 1-0 defeat at Arsenal.

After 66 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, the 33-year-old Greenwood moved to Fulham, where he made another 42 league appearances before retiring at the end of the 1955/56 season. At the end of his playing career in 1956, Greenwood became an active freemason attending the Lodge of Proven Fellowship No. 6225, but resigned in 1977.

After retiring Greenwood moved into coaching. He coached Eastbourne United in the Metropolitan League, Oxford University (where he came to the attention of Sir Harold Thompson, a future Chairman of the FA) and the England Youth and Under-23 teams. He combined the England Under-23 post with being the assistant manager at Arsenal under George Swindin, having moved to Highbury in December 1957. He remained there until April 1961, when he was selected by chairman Reg Pratt to replace Ted Fenton as manager of West Ham United. otobiyografisinde Yours Sincerely, Greenwood revealed how the appointment came about, starting when he was approached by Arsenal’s club secretary Bob Wall:

“’Mr Pratt, the West Ham chairman, has been on’, he said, ‘and he’s wondering if he can approach you with a view to you becoming their manager’. I told him I thought my future was with Arsenal and asked him if George Swindin knew about the offer. ’Well…. yes’ he replied, and then added: ‘You know, I think this job may be of interest to you’. He was painting a glowing picture of Mr Pratt and it was obvious he knew him well. I got the message loud and clear. ‘All right’ I said. ‘I’ll pop across to see him’. I drove across to West Ham on the Tuesday morning and met Reg Pratt and his vice-chairman, Len Cearns, members of two families who were West Ham. We talked in a little private room just off the old Upton Park Boardroom, and I must confess that when I sat down I did not have any firm notions about the job or the club. They came straight to the point and said they wanted me to become West Ham’s manager-coach. I was perfectly frank with them and said I was enjoying my job with Arsenal and the England Under-23 side, and that the decision facing me was a difficult one. ‘But if I do take the job’, I added, ‘I would want full control of all team matters and no interference’.”

Greenwood was offered an annual salary of £2,000, revealing he was ‘more interested in the possibilities of the job than the money’ and how he ‘started thinking about the many promising young West Ham players’ he had met. Greenwood steered the Hammers to a 16th-placed finish in 1960/61 after his first few weeks at the club. He signed Johnny ‘Budgie’ Byrne from Crystal Palace in March 1962 and handed a debut to Martin Peters a month later – immediate improvement was seen as the Hammers finished 1961/62 in eighth position. 1962/63 saw the Hammers drop to 12th but Greenword had switched Geoff Hurst to a central striking role a move which would pay long-term dividends.

The Irons finished 14th in 1963/64 but won the FA Cup for the first time in the club’s history, beating Manchester United in the semi-final at Hillsborough before defeating Preston 3-2 at Wembley. The Hammers climbed to ninth in the First Division in 1964/65 and beat TSV 1860 Munich to win the European Cup Winners’ Cup, in another Final staged at Wembley. West Ham finished 12th twice and 16th once in the following three seasons before rising to eighth in 1968/69. Greenwood sold Peters to Tottenham in 1969/70 and the Hammers finished 17th. The club finished 20th, one place above the relegation places in 1970/71 but finished 14th the following year. Greenwood claimed his highest league placing in 1972/73 as West Ham finished sixth, inspired by the goalscoring exploits of Bryan ‘Pop’ Robson.

The Hammers dropped dramatically the following season, finishing 18th. Greenwood took the decision to become General Manager of the club, with assistant John Lyall taking over. My video below tells the story of Ron Greenwood’s time as manager at West Ham United, in his own words, taking in Wembley wins in the FA Cup (1964) and the European Cup Winners’ Cup (1965) to his thoughts on key players such as Billy Bonds, Sir Trevor Brooking and Bryan ‘Pop’ Robson, as well as his replacement John Lyall.

Greenwood remained at the club until 1977 when he replaced Don Revie as England manager. The Three Lions had not qualified for a major tournament for ten years when Greenwood led his country to Euro 1980 and then the 1982 World Cup. England did not lose a game in Spain but could not progress beyond the second group stage. Greenwood retired from football after the World Cup and went on to be a regular analyst on BBC Radio. Ron Greenwood died on 9th February 2006, aged 84, after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.

Sunday’s referee will be Mike Dean 2018/19 is Dean’s 19th as a Premier League referee. Since West Ham United achieved promotion back to the top flight in 2012 Dean has refereed 21 of our league matches, officiating in nine wins for the Hammers, six draws and six defeats.

Dean refereed our final match at the Boleyn when we famously triumphed 3-2 over Manchester United. His decision to send off Sofiane Feghouli just 15 minutes into our 2-0 defeat to the Red Devils in January 2017 was later rescinded. Dean’s three Hammers appointments last season were the 3-2 win over Tottenham in the League Cup fourth round at Wembley in October, the 2-1 defeat at Manchester City in December and, most recently, our 1-1 Premier League draw with Tottenham in January.

West Ham United under Gianfranco Zola

2008-Present

Despite a very shacky start under Zolas reign, the Hammers were able to finish comfortably midtable in his first season with the club. Although from the outset, Zola had already got a number of factors going against him unlike previous managers at the club. West Ham as a whole were close to financial ruin due to crash of formal sponsor XL.com and the Icelantic banks. Not to mention shabby dealings in the market with massive wages for injury prone players (Kieron Dyer).

Zola faced many difficulties when it came to try and strengthen his already injury prone squad. Dean Ashton looked set to retire from the game, Craig Bellamy was not replaced and "new star" Savio was sent packing after several poor outings. This left Zola at the start of his first full season in charge with only Carlton Cole as his only experienced and tested option in attack. Help from Sponsors SBOBET allowed the club to fund the transfer of attacking option Diamanti whilst it was claimed Scott Duxbury funded himself, along with Nani, the deal to bring in Franco to make sure the Hammers had something for the new season.

Despite a good start against newly promoted Wolves (2 v 0 away win), the club went on to struggle badly in the first 12 games, picking up just 1 more win and finding themselves in the relegation mix around November 2009.

News of a possible takeover to save the Hammers was announced at the end of October, with an American group made up of West Ham fans ready to launch a £100 million bid whilst former Birmingham co owner Gold (West Ham fan and previous share holder of club) also announced he would to be interested in taking control of the East London outfit with a rumoured bid of around £80million being offered.

Come December 2009, no takeover had happened, and the current owners held creditors meetings to try and get the banks to give them more time to raise vital funds. Results on the pitch improved slightly with November finishing with 2 wins, 1 draw and a defeat, but Zola's men were given a swift reminder of the up hill battle they faced to survive at the hands of Manchester United, as they lost 4 v 0 at home, many were beginning to doubt Zola's abilities, even comparing him to former boss Glenn Roeder. More bad luck followed with the loss of top goal scorer Carlton Cole for 2 months to injury along with young Zavon Hines with a knee injury leaving Zola over the Christmas break with just Franco and Nouble up front. West Ham also lost Behrami for most of December along with facing a scare with Goalkeeper Robert Green who went off early during the Manchester United game. This since proved to be just down to illness rather than injury.
