    Hi @Richard_Scope
                                     I'm really sorry, no luck with the form, I can't understand why I am having difficulty submitting the form. Please may I ask, would you recommend I contact CP Sport via the email I used last time to resolve this? Any advice I would greatly appreciate, thank you.

    Hi both. thats great @Richard_Scope. I enjoyed meeting you both also. 
    WestHam06 Are you counting down the weeks until the new season?. I went to watch West Ham a couple of times with a friend who lives in London a couple of years ago...I must say, the atmosphere at the Boleyn ground was great! (speaking as a despondent Bradford City fan) I'm forever blowing bubbles!!  :)

    Hi @Scottyboy
                             How are you doing? It was great to meet you at the virtual café on Monday. Yes I am counting down the days until the new season whilst keeping a close eye on the transfers and when the Champions League is completed later this month. Oh wow, which games did you see? I know the atmosphere at the Boleyn was amazing, I was fortunate enough to watch four or five games at the Boleyn and it was the best atmosphere I ever watched a game in. I know I'm biased but it was awesome :) I have watched a game at the London Stadium and unfortunately the atmosphere hasn't followed us there, it seems we left that special atmosphere at the Boleyn :( Please may I ask do you go to watch many games, when we were able too? 
    I'm not sure how into football you are but on the community we have set up a competition whereby we guess the scores of the Premier League games each week, if you would be interested I'd be happy to share more. Thank you.

    Hi WestHam06...I suppose you'll be watching the Tina and Bobby programme on TV tonight  :smiley:
    I saw West Ham v Spurs and West Ham v Brighton..The Hammers don't like Spurs much I noted lol. Our historical rivals are Leeds so I hope that West Ham (and all the rest of the Prem) smash them big time next season   ;)
    Im a big football fan. watch most of the TV games and go occasionally..its hard to go and pay £20 to watch League 2 tho!
    You probably won't remember Bradford's time in the Premier League? I recall an amazing 5-4 match against West Ham featuring a very young Frank Lampard for you guys around 2001...look it up on youtube. Its a mad game  :D
    Yeah great, I'll do the scores thing. I do sky super 6. It sounds a lot like that.

    Hi @Richard_Scope
                                     Hope you are well, contacted CP Sport and they have helped me to resolve the issue so I just wanted to thank you for all of your support and I look forward to seeing you on Monday :) Thank you.

    Hi @Scottyboy
                             Wow, you went to a West Ham vs Spurs game, you're brave :) I must say as a West Ham fan you are taught who your rivals are from a young age and Spurs are quite near the top of the list so I am not surprised you noticed the Hammers fans dislike for them :) However, even I, as a West Ham fan, have to admit what a world class striker Harry Kane is. I am aware that Bradford are not massive fans of Leeds so hopefully West Ham can take 6 points from them next season- especially as we will need all the help we can get :) Though I have to say Leeds have played some great football this season.  I will be sue to check out the Bradford vs West Ham game on Youtube as I don't recall the game but it sounds like an absolute cracker :) Awesome, I'll be sure to let you know with updates with regard to the competition :)  I know what you mean about ticket prices, some of them are mad, I am doing this thing whereby I am trying to watch a game at every football club in the top 4 division in England, it's good fun, haven't got to Bradford yet though. Thank you.

    Hi @Richard_Scope
                                      Thank you so much for yesterday's CP café with CP Sport. Another thoroughly enjoyable session and it was great to meet Leon and hear his experiences :) Thank you.

    Hi @Scottyboy
                            How are you? I have just watched the West Ham vs Bradford City game, you are right what a mad game with some great goals, Moncur for us and Lawerence for Bradford :) Thank you for sharing it with me, watching the great Harry Redknapp in the dugout was great. I was young when the game was played and Redknapp was manager and though I don't remember much think he was really positive for us. I was lucky enough to go to an evening with Harry Redknapp, what a man with lots of great stories :) Thank you.
