If you’re not into FIFA or watching others play it, what else is there to do whilst football is away other than reminisce about special West Ham moments from the past?
And on Wednesday, masses of fellow Hammers fans of Twitter were asked by @COYIrons_com what they were doing when Ricardo Vaz Te found the roof of the net in the 87th minute in the play-off final at Wembley in 2012.
For me, it was leaping around hysterically behind that goal before my brain fairly quickly turned to the few minutes we had left to survive – it would have been so us to score late and then concede straight afterwards.
I don’t care that it was the Championship play-off final, that Vaz Te strike has to go down as one of the best moments in our club’s modern history.
Here’s supporters’ Tweets as they got talking about that wonderful day…
Never forget being thrown into the air by some random geeza behind the goal

At home with the TV off as I was so nervous, it was only cause I heard my Son from upstairs who was watching scream and shout that I turned the TV back on.
