West Ham’s supporters came in homage to Billy Bonds, around 20,000 of them taking their seats in the stand that adopted his name in a stirring ceremony before kick-off. They left lauding heroes present and future too and, for one night at least, the club’s modern existence sat in perfect harmony with its past.
Taking the emotion out of it, this was a functional and largely sterile win over a dreary Newcastle side. West Ham did what they had to do; they just could not have found two more appropriate men to do it.
