'Wembley is a fantastic day out'

More than most, Ex-West Ham United forward Alan Taylor knows how good a day out at Wembley with West Ham United can be.

Taylor scored both of West Ham's goals in the 1975 FA Cup Final at Wembley against Fulham after scoring three braces in the competition before the final itself. The pacey Hammers forward told West Ham TV he remembers that day very fondly.

"I was only young at the time when I played in that final which reflects a lot on the players we have here at the moment. We had Trevor Brooking, Billy Bonds and Frank Lampard mixed in with Billy Jennings and Keith Robson so we had a good mixture of youth and experience and on the day we had too much for Fulham. This is similar to what we have now, Kevin Nolan and Robert Green mixed in with James Tomkins, Henri Lansbury and jack Collison."

"To actually go there after a week of build up and anticipation it is fantastic. We got taken away to get ready for the big occasion but nowadays its slightly different. Nevertheless it is still a fantastic experience and a great day out."

With West Ham United facing Blackpool in the Play-Off Final on Saturday, Taylor told West Ham TV that Hammers fans can expect a memorable day out.

"To go to the new Wembley would be a new experience for everybody at the club and I can only say what a great experience being at Wembley is especially if you come out as winners which I hope we do on Saturday."
