Your brains will certainly have to adopt the role of wanderer as you try to cast your minds back well over a century to the very beginning of the club's long history. The FA Cup success would become the first of three successful Wembley finals in as many years for Moore. By now he was the first choice captain for England with 30 caps, and around whom Ramsey was building a team to prove correct his prediction that they would win the World Cup. For Moore, who had scored in the first leg, and his West Ham teammates Geoff Hurst and Martin Peters , considerable consolation lay ahead.
Moore scored his second and ultimately final England goal in a friendly against Norway , two weeks before the World Cup would begin. On the verge of his greatest triumph, details were released to the press in early that Moore wanted to leave West Ham. Moore had let his contract slip to termination, and only after the intervention of Sir Alf Ramsey and realisation he was technically ineligible to play, did he re-sign with West Ham to allow him to captain the England team of Ramsey had summoned West Ham manager Ron Greenwood to England's hotel and told the two of them to resolve their differences and get a contract signed up.
Moore was the leader of the World Cup winning side and established himself as a world-class player and sporting icon. West Germany awaited in the final. According to Geoff Hurst's autobiography , England full back George Cohen overheard Ramsey talking to his coaching staff about the possibility of dropping Moore for the final and deploying the more battle-hardened Norman Hunter in his place.
However, eventually they settled on keeping the captain in the team. Moore had not been playing badly, nor had he given the impression that he had been distracted by his contract dispute prior to the competition.

In the final, England went 1—0 down through Helmut Haller , but Moore's awareness and quick-thinking helped England to a swift equaliser. He was fouled by Wolfgang Overath midway inside the German half and, rather than remonstrate or head back into defence, he picked himself up quickly while looking ahead and delivered an instant free kick on to Hurst's head, in a movement practised at West Ham.
Hurst scored. Ramsey was convinced the Germans were exhausted, and after Hurst scored a controversial and heavily debated goal , the game looked over. With seconds remaining, and England under the pressure of another German attack, the ball broke to Moore on the edge of his own penalty area. Of many memorable images from that day, one is of Moore wiping his hands clean of mud and sweat on the velvet tablecloth before shaking the hand of Queen Elizabeth II as she presented him with the Jules Rimet trophy World Cup.
The Guardian wrote "Moore is the calmest person in the stadium as he leads the England players up to the Royal Box". Moore became a national icon as a consequence of England's success, with him and the other two West Ham players taking the World Cup around the grounds which West Ham visited during the following domestic season. He was awarded the coveted BBC Sports Personality of the Year title at the end of , the first footballer to do so, and remaining the only one for a further 24 years.
Moore's image and popularity allowed him to start a number of business ventures, including a sports shop next to West Ham's ground, Upton Park , and he also appeared with his wife Tina, along with Peters and his wife Kathy, in a television advertisement for the pub industry, urging people to "Look in at the local". He continued to play for West Ham and England, earning his 50th cap in a 5—1 win over Wales at the end of in a Home International match which also doubled up as a qualifier for the European Championships.
England ultimately reached the semi-finals the tournament was just a four-team event where they played Yugoslavia in Florence and lost 1—0. England, as champions, did not have to qualify for the next World Cup, and Moore remained the first name on Ramsey's team sheet, winning his 78th cap prior to the squad's flight to South America for a short period of altitude-acclimatisation, before going on to the finals in Mexico. The year was a bittersweet, mixed and eventful one for Moore. A young assistant had claimed that Moore had removed the bracelet from the hotel shop without paying for it.
While Moore had been in the shop having entered with Bobby Charlton to look for a gift for Charlton's wife, Norma , no proof was offered to support the accusations. Moore was arrested and then released. He then travelled with the England team to play another match against Ecuador in Quito. He played, winning his 80th cap, and England were 2—0 victors, but when the team plane stopped back in Colombia on the return to Mexico, Moore was detained and placed under four days of house arrest.
Diplomatic pressure, plus the obvious weakness of the evidence, eventually saw the case dropped entirely, and an exonerated Moore returned to Mexico to rejoin the squad and prepare for the World Cup. Moore received a guard of honour from his squad when he arrived at the team hotel. Moore went on to play a leading role in England's progress through their group. On 2 June he captained England to a 1—0 victory against Romania.

In the second game against favourites Brazil , there was a defining moment for Moore when he tackled Jairzinho with such precision and cleanness that it has been described as the perfect tackle. This caused him to pull out of pre-season friendlies against Bristol City and Bournemouth. However, his services to West Ham were rewarded with a testimonial match against Celtic at the end of Although Moore was seen as an icon and a perfect influence on the game, he was not without his faults or controversies.

They were all fined a week's wages. Blackpool were the bottom of Division one at the time, and were relegated at the end of the season.

Moore surpassed West Ham's appearances record in when he played for the club for the th time. Three days earlier, on Valentine's Day , he won his th cap for England in a comprehensive 5—0 win over Scotland at Hampden Park  By this stage, only Peters and Alan Ball from the squad were also still involved with the England team.
Moore's form had dipped enough for Ramsey to choose not to select him for the return game at Wembley which England had to win to qualify. Any other result would send Poland through. Being replaced by Norman Hunter in defense and Peters as the skipper for that match, Moore is understood to have asked Ramsey if this meant he was no longer required, to which Ramsey replied: "Of course not.
I need you as my captain at the World Cup next year. Allan Clarke equalised with a penalty, but England could not score again as goalkeeper Jan Tomaszewski blocked numerous English chances. Moore later told how he sat alongside Ramsey on the bench and kept urging him to make a substitution, but Ramsey was hesitant to do so. Moore, later, said to David Miller "you could 'feel' the minutes escaping.
I said to Alf, we need someone to go through the middle. He just nodded. We couldn't get Kevin out there quick enough. We almost threw him onto the pitch. England's failure to qualify for the FIFA World Cup signalled the end of Ramsey's reign as national team manager as he was sacked six months later. Moore won his th and final cap in the next game, a 1—0 friendly defeat to Italy on 14 November He became England's most capped player, beating Bobby Charlton's record by two appearances, and equalled Billy Wright 's record of 90 appearances as captain.
Peter Shilton , David Beckham and Steven Gerrard have since overtaken the caps record, but the joint captaincy record remains. He was injured in the match. On 14 March the same year, he was allowed to leave West Ham after more than 15 years, taking with him the club record for appearances since overtaken by Billy Bonds and the most international caps for an outfield player.
This time Fulham lost the game, 2—0, and Moore had made his final appearance at Wembley as a professional player.

In , Moore appeared in 8 games for the now-defunct Carolina Lightnin' , after injuries left the club without cover.

However, the side was gradually rebuilt and in the —86 season Southend started well and were in the promotion race until the new year before eventually finishing 9th.
His successor, David Webb built upon those foundations to win promotion the following year.
