He has never scored a goal, lifted a trophy, worn the captain's armband or even played for the club - but the man is considered a genuine Hammers legend. Indeed, as the fans have repeatedly chanted for the last three decades, "There's only one Stevie Bacon." As West Ham United's popular official photographer for more than 30 years, Steve Bacon has become a cult hero at Upton Park - to the extent that he has appeared on Sky's Soccer AM, starred in a comical YouTube clip, been parodied in a fanzine comic strip and even had a burger named after him. From his privileged position, Steve has enjoyed unlimited access behind the scenes - forming part of the club's backroom team and travelling with the squad - and established close relationships with many of the club's managers and players, allowing him to reflect on an undulating period of Hammers history from a unique perspective. John Lyall, Lou Macari, Billy Bonds, Harry Redknapp, Glenn Roeder, Alan Pardew, Alan Curbishley, Gianfranco Zola and Avram Grant have all worked under the focus of Bacon's candid camera, while Trevor Brooking, Tony Cottee, Frank McAvennie, Julian Dicks, Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard, Paolo Di Canio and Scott Parker are just a few of the star players who have embraced him into their fold. The result is that Steve has a thrilling story to tell. Packed with terrific tales, amusing anecdotes and controversial characters, plus a foreword by Hammers hero SIR TREVOR BROOKING, There's Only One Stevie Bacon offers an intriguing insight into life at the Boleyn Ground and one that no West Ham United fan will want to miss.
