West Ham UTD: 10 best apps for fans on iPhone & iPad

By Marlon Votta - Aug 31, 2011

For all those West Ham United fans, we have come up with best ten apps that fans can enjoy on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. West Ham is an English professional football club based in Upton Park, Newham, East London. This year they were relegated from the Premiership League but a prestigious team like the Hammers won’t stay down for long. The club was founded in 1895 as Thames Ironworks FC and reformed in 1900 as West Ham United. In 1904, the club relocated to their current Boleyn Ground stadium.

Three West Ham players were considered an important factor behind England’s triumph in the 1966 World Cup. England’s captain at the time was West Ham’s Bobby Moore, and both goal scorers in the final were then current players Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters. The club’s anthem is “I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles”. The team initially played in full dark blue kits, as inspired by Mr. Hills, who had been an Oxford University “Blue”. In 1899, they acquired their now traditional home kit combination of claret shirts and sky blue sleeves in a wager involving Aston Villa players, who were League Champions at the time. Because of the original “works team” roots and links (still represented upon the club badge), they are still known to this day as ‘the Irons’ or ‘the Hammers’ amongst fans and the media. West Ham’s first game in their new home was against fierce rivals Millwall (themselves an Ironworks team, albeit for a rival company) drawing a crowd of 10,000 and with West Ham running out 3–0 winners.
