This is the first 11 of your team of players who played for West Ham predominantly in the 1980s.*.
* Players like Trevor Brooking and Frank Lampard Snr overlap the turn of the decade have been put into the 1970s selection.
I guess the most interesting thing here is George Parris at left back. Frank Lampard played there for the the first half of the decade, but he is in the 1970s side. Julian Dicks took the position in 1988, but he is in the 1990s side, so George Parris creeps in.
A rather tasty team this, all round. I’d love to see them play the current side!
