West Ham United are preparing to embark on their penultimate season at the Boleyn Ground ahead of the move to the Olympic Stadium in 2016.

By way of tribute to the ground that has played host to the Hammers for more than 100 years, the Official Programme will count down the 50 greatest matches ever played at the Club's historic home.

With hundreds of games to choose from, supporters will have a tough task to pick their favourite famous - or perhaps infamous - fixtures in Boleyn Ground history.

Many of those games were played long before many supporters were born, including the very first fixture at Boleyn Ground - a 3-0 Southern League victory over local rivals Millwall way back in September 1904.

Fifteen years later, League football arrived in this particular part of London, with the Hammers playing out a 1-1 draw with Lincoln City in their inaugural Division Two fixture in September 1919.

By September 1930, West Ham were a Division One club and celebrated that fact by thrashing Liverpool 7-0, with all-time record goalscorer Vic Watson netting four times.

Initially, the Second World War did not force the Hammers from their home, but a direct hit on the pitch from a V-1 flying bomb in August 1944 caused considerable damage and led to West Ham playing nine away matches in succession before their return for a London derby with Tottenham Hotspur in December of the same year.

The 1957/58 season was a momentous one, with West Ham winning promotion from Division Two, losing just one home match and scoring a club-record 8-0 win over Rotherham United at the Boleyn Ground.

The following campaign saw a teenage Bobby Moore make his debut in a 3-2 home win over Manchester United.

Into the glory years of the 1960s and the FIFA World Cup-winning triumvirate of Moore, Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters enjoyed many successful afternoons and evenings on the famous turf, including a host of thrilling victories in domestic and European competition.

Among them were a 7-0 League Cup thrashing of Don Revie's Leeds United in November 1966 and another 8-0 win, this time over Sunderland in Division One courtesy of Hurst's record-breaking double hat-trick.

October 1970 saw the Boleyn Ground's highest-ever crowd - 42,322 - turn out for a 2-2 Division One draw with old adversaries Tottenham.

The 1975 and 1980 FA Cup successes and two European Cup Winners' Cup runs saw the Boleyn Ground play host to more thrilling knockout football, including the haunting victory over Spanish side Castilla at a near-empty stadium in October 1980 and the mesmerising performance of Soviet wizards Dinamo Tbilisi the following March.

October 1983 saw West Ham hit double figures in a 10-0 League Cup thumping of Bury, while the Boys of '86 recorded 17 home wins during their thrilling quest for the title, including an 8-1 thrashing of Newcastle United.

West Ham are not the only team to have called the Boleyn Ground home over the past 109 years, of course, with Wayne Rooney making his senior England debut in an international friendly with Australia in 2003.

There are so many memorable matches to choose from! Which match do you believe should make the list of the 50 greatest ever played at the Boleyn Ground?
