|All you need to know about West Ham United FC's potential move to Stratford.
Very funny - you've clearly got time on your hands .
Small point though - matchday goers have put more of their cash into WHU since the Daves "saved us" , than they have .
That's a fact ..................
The matchday goers, and sky subscribers foot the bills , not the owners .
Time on my hands ~ Pinky a bit rich for someone who has posted nearly 19,000 times on here compared to my measly 470 ; < p
Actually started work at 07:00 hours yesterday and finished at around 02.30 this morning and did this while on a conference call with some colleagues in Australia early hours of this morning ........ time is one thing I don't have at the moment.
Sense of humour YES .........................................think about it ; < P
Thought I would lighten up the atmosphere before we all have a massive row with one another at Wemmmbberrrlleey tomorrow with the pro's against the anti's
West Ham together COYI !!!!
Beeb man thinks delay is down to permission to move
Extract from article:-
And every single one of them a gem .......
Fair play , but somehow I think those of us that have opposed the move to the athletics stadium will have the last laugh whilst those who have sat in the "wait and see" camp can express their indignation.................... when it's too late .
Sorry MEM - not digging you out , you seem like a decent chap and all that , but this is one topic I am rather unamused over, the olympic stadium ain't the holy grail for me .
Anyway, enjoy the game tomorrow .......thumbupthingy
To be honest mate I cant see anyone deserving to have the last laugh if it turns out to be everything that those against fear, because the campaign to oppose the move has really been almost non-existent despite the fact that many claim the majority oppose the move.
How many fans did we have at Wembley today? How many more tickets could we have sold?
Many of my mates including myself were unable to get a ticket.
Can we fill the Olympic Stadium? You bet your life we can...
Do we have the fan base? Of course we do...
People have questioned whether we have the fan base, and where these so called additional fans are going to come from.
The answer is they are and have always been there! Get the price structure right, get the performances and the club are onto a winner.
By the way: With us now likely to become tenants for the OS and Hearn insisting on being bitchy about it - can't we offer to groundshare with Orient if Mr.Hearn is so desperate ? When we are away, certainly Orient can play there in front of an average crowd of 6427 fans.
As long as Hearn puts in the money for rent, maintenance etc..
And as long as he doesn't mind having to sit in a claret and blue dugout/executive box when watching his team.
I don't know why, but I still have a soft spot for Orient, would love for them to play in Championship someday.
However, I don't have much time for Hearn at all, but we shouldn't blame their fans for his behaviour...
I agree. To attract the crowds the tickets need to be cheaper and we need to invest in the playing staff. If we have an exciting team and affordable tickets I'm sure we'll pull a decent crowd. Being a poor student I hardly make any games. Make it cheaper and I'll be there with my brother every weekend. However if we keep prices the same and don't invest in players it will be a failure. G&S need to put their money where their mouth is and start spending. Not relying on crappy loan signings or whatever. Who knows we might even attract outside investment. Today showed we have lots of fans. With the OS plus our fanbase there's an exciting opportunity to make something big of this club. I think some people underestimate the potential.
I would say that given reasonably priced tickets we could have filled Wembley, but in counterbalance that would have been for an extraordinarily attractive game.....
Not every game is a play-off final - we barely sold out at all last season in the Premiership.
