HIGHS, LOWS & DI CANIOS is a rollercoaster ride through one of the most turbulent decades in Claret & Blue history: the 1990s. A decade which included one relegation, two promotions, three managers, an FA Cup semi-final and, ultimately, a European adventure.

The creation of the Premier League changed everything, with the arrival of continental superstars and an explosion in wages and transfer fees. What didn’t change was the agony and ecstasy of being a West Ham fan. Knowing deep in your heart that another disaster was always around the corner…

In typically hilarious, passionate, analytical style, Sid, Ex and Dave remember Iain Dowie’s own goal at Stockport, being knocked out of the FA Cup by Torquay, and Marco Boogers going to live in a caravan (allegedly). And yet in the darkest hour, new heroes would emerge. A young Stuart Slater lifted the gloom, Julian Dicks became an Upton Park legend, and Paolo Di Canio’s genius had the Chicken Run singing opera long into the East End night.

HIGHS, LOWS & DI CANIOS recreates the raw emotion of life at the Boleyn during the ‘90s. A time that was unpredictable, unprecedented and when you could guarantee only one thing: fortune was always hiding. Features a foreword by West Ham legend Julian Dicks, and an Introduction by Hammers hero Tony Cottee.
