On this day (October 11) in 1992, West Ham beat Sunderland 6-0 at Upton Park. 

Managed by the legendary Billy Bonds, the hosts were on red hot form in front of a 10,326 crowd in east London. 

The Hammers goalscorers on the day were Kevin Keen, Alvin Martin, Trevor Morley, Clive Allen and a brace from midfielder Mark Robson. 

The three points would eventually help secure promotion back to the newly formed Premier League as the Irons finished second behind Newcastle United in the old First Division. 

Whilst the Irons may have fallen and risen again many times over in the ensuing near three decades, Sunderland currently find themselves attempting to earn promotion out of League One.


Such resounding victories have been few and far between since that famous day, but under David Moyes’ stewardship, the halcyon days are returning. 

Some legendary figures from West Ham’s past are featured here, many of whom still have strong links to the club to this day some 19 years later. 

Hammers can be proud of their rich history as well as the current squad as Moyes, Declan Rice, Michail Antonio and co bring the good times back to the club.
