Re: Would we have been better off backing Moyes with 100mil

We'd have been better off steadily incrementally investing in the squad instead of letting it rot then spunking all our cash in one transfer window (which we know will soon be followed by a similar period of parsimony) in order to present the image of being big spenders. Healthy year on year investm...

Re: WHUISA - WHU Independent Supporters Association

Maybe the above two posters can provide suggestions on how the committee could improve its mailing software? Or anyone else to provide assistance? (That isn’t sarcastic in any way at all at you two by the way) WHUISA could even publish an action list of what it needs help on and if there’s voluntee...

Re: David Moyes: should he stay or should he go? [POLL]

I dislike Moyes but walking away from the club over the way the owners behave is certainly worthy of respect.

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

Sunday Times Rich List published today. David Sullivan is at 126 with £1.1bn and David Gold (and family) are the 281st richest on £460m. People don't get this rich by pissing their money away on football clubs, they do however have every intention of continuing to increase their personal wealth. I ...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

is there anyone left defending these *****? What can you say? The only thing I can imagine in their defence is that there are plenty of other possible owners that would have done roughly the same thing. They'd have had their own style which might not have worn so thin as G&S's increasingly tedious ...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

That banner that says Man City owners good - west ham owners evil...is quite pathetic. IS that really what it boils down to? That if your owners are billionares they are good. Obviously we have bad owners but just say it like that just makes us look muggy in my opinion. My reading would be owners m...

Because her job isn't to make life wonderful for the punters, it's to make money for her bosses. Which she does. It's not just that, it's also doing it in the way they want - i.e. on the cheap, and an absolute willingness to front and absorb any criticism, and to be completely loyal even if it mean...

I actually think you don't give the **** credit for making such a laughable suggestion.

He would have loved it if we agreed to a token ex player represe...

Re: WHUISA - WHU Independent Supporters Association

The whole ‘no dividends’ line keeps getting trotted out... I know you don't need this explaining 75, but for anyone who wonders taking out debt repayments from a business is often an even more tax efficient way to extract your money than dividends. This applies to companies a lot smaller than West ...

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

I understand that there is a growing distance between the Baroness and the Baron. Maybe Sulli left it all to her whilst he played football manager and now he's looking on aghast? I doubt he's particularly enjoying hosting the great unwashed at Sullivan towers on what now seems to be a weekly basis,...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

Straightforward question, but a pretty complicated one... Are Gold and Sullivan more likely to sell sooner if we get relegated this season? West Ham is an asset that makes them money. They have no motivation to sell other than fan disquiet, in fact if they did they would incur considerable losses t...

Re: The Accounts

Makes me wonder how much of their money that they earned outside of football has ever been invested in football. I reckon zero. Not a bean. I remember you making the point during the days of "The Project" when the club was in distress that it's cash flow (or lack of it) that would kill us, and that...

Therefore we moved , sold our home of 100 years for just £8.7m Not even the price of a championship striker.

Not sure any of them would have overseen an openly racist transfer policy though. Genuinely missing Scott Duxbury.
