Watch The legend of Tittyshev, a documentary looking at when a heckling spectator was brought on for West Ham in a pre-season friendly.

When Harry Redknapp was assistant manager in 1994 when the supporter came on as a substitute against Oxford City.

Redknapp told The Guardian:

Lee Chapman was playing for us at the time.

All through the first half some tattooed skinhead behind me was giving Lee terrible stick.

At half-time I turned to this bloke who had West Ham etched on his neck and asked ‘Can you play as good as you talk?’

He looked totally confused. So I told him he was going to get his dream to play for West Ham.

We sent him down the tunnel and he reappeared 10 minutes later all done out in the strip.

He ran on to the pitch and a journalist from the local Oxford paper sidled up and asked ‘Who’s that Harry?’ I said ‘What? Haven’t you been watching the World Cup? That’s the great Bulgarian Tittyshev!’

The fella wasn’t bad – actually, he scored!
