Saturday evening’s draw with Manchester City epitomised everything we love and cherish about the Boleyn Ground.

Under the lights, the ground rocking, the atmosphere electric, the players going toe to toe with the Premier League’s strongest squad and being unlucky to have only drawn the game. It had everything, and made me realise just how much we’re going to miss evenings like that at the Boleyn Ground in the future.

We’re just a few months away from the big move to the Olympic Stadium and although I’m looking forward to it – and think it’s important for the club to make the move – it’s going to be an extremely sad day when we finally leave our home.

One day we’ll be able to proudly call the Olympic Stadium our home and, hopefully, create an intimidating atmosphere – but nothing will ever come close to beating the Boleyn Ground. Ever.

And the photo below just sums up the beauty of our wonderful home. The Boleyn Ground has a reputation of being a special place under the lights, and this picture shows that off wonderfully.

Farewell Boleyn…

The Boleyn Ground under the lights. Perfect. #COYI #WHUFC #FarewellBoleyn
