LEGEND: Bryan 'Pop' Robson had two succesful spells at West Ham. In February 1971 he signed from Sunderland and was the top division's leading scorer with 28 goals as West Ham finished sixth in 1972-73. He joined Sunderland in July 1974 but returned to West Ham in October 1976. Staying for another three seasons, Pop increased his stats to 104 goals in 254 appearances for the Irons in all competitions by June 1979, when he rejoined Sunderland
The Hammers (aka The Irons) The Hammers, which has nothing to do with the club’s name; instead it marks its foundation by members of the Thames Ironworks, further signalled by the crossed hammers on the club’s badge.
