Nothing to do with any of the current shareholders (I don't think) but years ago, maybe 30 plus, I remember a Saturday night entertainment programme where someone found out they owned a share or shares in West Ham. It was something like a Noel Edmonds type thing but I never heard anything again. It seemed a big deal at the time like it was a real unexpected nest egg.

Would subsequent share issues have made this worthless? I often think back to it but for the life of me I cannot remember more than I have put here.

Think they all got bought out by the Icelandics.

I didn't sell mine, but it's worthless now.

1/3438 could be worth £175,000!

I'm intrigued about these old shares and why now worthless. Finance is definitely not my thing.

When Terry Brown sold up to Gudmundsson and Magnusson the compulsory purchase of all shares kicked in... IIRC the trigger figure is 80% (no doubt someone will correct me if that's incorrect).

I still have my single share cert. If anyone's interested I'll try and dig it out.

I've still got my single share as well, thanks to a well known KUMB poster :)

Used to like going to the old AGMs at UP with a free cup of tea and biscuit.

Sullivan got £6m for his WH shares when the Icelandics bought us, the shares had been in some kind of trust.

Thanks guys. Never knew much about that. Must have been great to know you were a part owner.

All these shareholders and bondholders!

I bet you’ve all got Swarkovski encrusted panthers at the bottom of the stairs.

^^^ Yes they do. You're probably counting the shares that have been transferred and their current holding is now 0.
Am I missing something? 688 out of 3438 is 20%

I had just bought my share and was awaiting the certificate when the compulsory purchase kicked in. Needless to say I never got the certificate, nor my money back :D

🙂A very well spent tenner at the time. The chance to give Brown a verbal kick-in whilst grabbing all the jammy dodgers 👍

ChechHammer - great stuff.

Should't do really - the divvy up will be based on shareholding not seats on the board. It's just giving them a bit of status while he can still dish it out.
Probably gives them something to put on their cv, after all failed women’s team head honcho or ‘former’ Arsenal fan doesn’t get you very far.

It’s been a few years but it always used to be the case that if you didn’t claim it you would be classed as dissenting with any cash held in trust for I think 12 years; might be worth an enquiry.
