West Ham: Tweet gets fans discussing Johnny Byrne

West Ham: Tweet gets fans discussing Johnny Byrne - West Ham

A lot of West Ham fans are discussing Johnny Byrne after a fan page asked supporters on Twitter how good they believe the former Iron was when he played at the club.

Byrne is a name for the older generations who follow the Hammers, as he played for them from 1961-1967, via westhamtillidie.

It looked like he would not go down as a cult hero when he first started at Upton Park, as he only managed one goal in eleven appearances in his first campaign. However the attacker started to warm to the club, and ended up scoring 108 goals in 206 top flight, FA Cup and European level matches, whilst also being part of the 1963/64 FA Cup winning team, per Transfermarkt. This is one of just three FA Cup’s which the club have ever picked up.
