I will be devastated when we leave Goodison Park, as much as I am excited at the prospect of our new ground
Its been my constant, it's been my second home. Its been where I have lived some incredible highs and feared some horrible lows. It forms some of my earliest memories, which are of watching us win leagues and beat all comers. It is my safe place. It is where I know I am among like minded people. Where I know we all want the same thing, we all celebrate the goals, and whince when the opposition score.
But BMD will be that too, just without the shared history in the beginning.
It will be where I build the memories I hold so dear with my kids and, God willing, their kids too.
On our last day at Goodison I hope the club can open early and close late. I want to be there as long as possible. I want to say goodbye. Not in a Sky Sports generated West Ham way. Quietly. And in our own individual ways.
Will be a difficult thing walking out of Goodison for the last time.
