West Ham fans singing ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’ for the first time in their new stadium is seriously impressive.
The Hammers moved into the Olympic Stadium this summer and played their first game there last night in the second leg of their Europa League tie with NK Domzale.
It was a huge occasion for the club, with the stadium expected to help them take the next step into becoming one of the biggest teams in the English Premier League.
Fortunately they were able to mark the occasion with a 3-0 victory against the Slovenian side, overturning a 1-0 defeat in the first leg to set up a clash with Astra Giurgiu in the next round.
Fans would have been keen to rate the atmosphere inside their new home – hoping it rivalled or even bettered what Upton Park had to offer before they left at the end of last season.
And they would have been delighted with the noise generated during the iconic ‘I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles’ song at kick-off:

Anyone else got goosebumps?
If that’s the noise the fans can make during an early stage Europa League game then what is it going to be like playing against a big team at 3pm on a Saturday?
