In case you’d missed the news, tonight is the last ever night that West Ham United will play at the Boleyn Ground.
The Hammers have played at the iconic stadium for 112 years, and they’ll finish their tenure there as they host Manchester United tonight.
Twitter is usually a hate filled place when it comes to football, but the social platform has been a place for users to share their memories of the stadium, using the hashtag #FarewellBoleyn.
Here’s the best of the lot:

Obviously, some couldn’t resist taking the piss:

Feels like I'm going to have my first dog put down, knowing it might be for the best but knowing nothing can replace it! #FarewellBoleyn

But Mark Noble, West Ham’s local hero and Captain, summed it up best:
Farewell, Boleyn Ground!
