The Boleyn Arms - World Cup Special

Welcome to The Boleyn Arms - a West Ham United virtual public house, and a West Ham Institution.

Now in our new home on WHU 606, this is a pleasant hostelry is open for Hammers/Irons to discuss matters relating to football, West Ham United or anything else.

WUMs are barred from this establishment, although friendly fans of other clubs are welcome to come in and enjoy the claret and blue atmosphere.

Please do not deface the pictures of players past and present, that adorn the walls in this establishment (and that includes the one of Jimmy Neighbour, R.I.P.) As with the rest of this site, have fun but please avoid anything racist, sexist, homophobic and any comments that promote negative racial or cultural stereotypes, whether said in jest or not.

Please also bear in mind that users of all ages are on this forum. Therefore please refrain from any content of an adult nature or anything unsuitable for users of all ages.

In previous opening periods of this thread, originally established on BBC 606 by V8Iron under the title "Let's all sign up to this" on the 17th May 2007, we have now achieved postings totaling 139,539 (BBC 606 total) + 180,208 = 319,747and counting.

On March 8th 2013 the 250,000 milestone was passed with a post by Woosie. Well done Woosie and all who have contributed to this Hammer's Institution since May 2007 - Well done guys!

On the weekend of 12th/13th April 2014 with the posting of the 35th comment The Boleyn Arms have passed our post total on BBC 606 well done guys V8 would be proud!

Now entering our 11th year, it gives me great pleasure to re-dedicate this plaque. To those who on BBC 606 defended this place through the deadly days of the Spring and Summer of 2007 .... their names will however live on here forever; though some are lost to us now:
VEight Iron
Half-Egg Half-Biscuit
Espania Hammer

  • Good morning Lord Expat ;champagne I trust you have a good seat for the wedding today? Are you renting your driveway out to other guests? ;biggrin
  • Good morning squire Wombat,

    I shall unfortunately decline the riff raff the use of said driveway ;biggrin
    and how are you good sir, keeping well I hope
  • I am well thank you, and you? I was staying in your manor a couple of weekend ago, at the Oakley park. Rather nice by the river.
  • Morning ;cool


  • Oh I say, that is posh
    I believe that Mrs E has conducted a wedding fair there once

    Good morning Mr Image ;wave
  • Morning expat
    Gives royal ;bowdown
  • I am as far removed from a TV screen as is humanly possible, I shall not waste such a glorious day stuck inside. I am shredding garden waste today
  • A sort of royal weeding, then...

  • Meanwhile, I shall be doing some metalwork.

    That's right, a royal welding...
  • Outside in the sun ;star
  • Grey, please leave your number with reception ............... on second thoughts don't ;lol
  • Never post on here....
    But good luck to the royal couple.
    I'm not a royalist but Harry is his own man...I wish them both the best, I'm feeling the love.... Pity about the US high reverend who went on a trifle!!!!.....
  • Perhaps the preacher thought it was a royal wording?
  • As you may have guessed, I am the official Wedding Punner.
  • It just goes to show how shallow we are as a society when we are fed another 'royal' wedding for some people to be hysterical over, when there are many more problems in our midst, like the pressing need for Sullivan to approve a new manager as soon as possible, and invest in an ageing squad.

    Some people need to have a good look at their priorities. I bet it gets all the headlines in tomorrow's papers ;doh
  • Hello folks
  • Well done to Fulham on gaining promotion back to the PL ;clap ;clap ;clap
    And of course.........sparing us the presence of a certain Mr Stephen Bruce, late of Aston Villa ;clap ;clap ;clap ;clap
  • Eastbrook arms ?
  • Always happy to see 3rd place go up. Play-offs are nonsense, imo.
  • Cairney better than any midfield player for England going to the World Cup sign him up Manuel
  • Erm. No.
  • Always happy to see 3rd place go up. Play-offs are nonsense, imo.

    Simply a money earner for football.

    Agree, Southgate has made his choice of squad & Captain......his fate hangs on that.
    I have a very peaceful feeling in regards to England’s progress in the World Cup, if we progress then great, if not then my expectations will not have been let down as per usual.
  • Think with Fulham winning that takes away our chance of signing him up
  • So it zzzzzz nap time
    And 7 mile jog sparrowzzz tomorrow before it’s to warm or wet ;hmm
  • Mornings ;biggrin
  • We have arrived in Peterborough for our nieces wedding and are sat in the sun enjoying a vodka and tonic ;champagne ;biggrin
  • How very pleasant!

    Julie's still hard at work, slaving over a hot student, and I'm just off to choir practice.

    However, in a couple of hours there may be a cold one or two in our local.
