As Valentine’s Day drew closer on Thursday evening, fans on Twitter were getting emotional about Upton Park with @whufc_news sharing a tear-jerking video.
We’ve all seen it and wept over it, the recording of the last ever bubbles as the players took to the pitch for the final time in E13 on that remarkable night.
Is there any other ex-partner that we’ll be thinking about more on this Valentine’s Day than Upton Park?
What we wouldn’t all give to go back to that moment and sing bubbles in the Boleyn Ground just for one final time – it just isn’t the same in Stratford, is it?
One supporter called the video heartbreaking on Valentine’s eve, whilst another put forward the brutal epiphany that we’ll never have a home atmosphere like that again.
