A club memory posted on Twitter has prompted many of us to draw sad parallels with the present – the 20-year anniversary of that game against Bradford.

We all know how it goes, Di Canio begging to be subbed, Di Canio taking the penalty off a fresh-faced Frank Lampard and Joe Cole’s first Upton Park goal, among many more moments.

Will there ever be a better game in the history of the Premier League, let alone our own?

But now the retro match has formed the base of depressing comparisons between then and now by fellow supporters.

One remarked that the Bradford drama was when we had players who fought for the shirt, whilst another reflected that it was when we had loyal fans.
