Re: Rugby Union World Cup.

So disappointed Scotland didn't get kicked out due to their game not being played - the burning injustice that would have caused in Scotland would have been a joy to watch. :D

So, as it is, come on Japan !!!!!

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

The difference between West Ham, the online touts and the outside the ground touts is that they are covered by the terms set by West Ham upon sale, namely that it can be re sold through the club. Should the club be buying back at ST rate and then re selling at individual game rate without passing o...

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

I don't see that it is, and if it was up to me it would be illegal for companies to sell on tickets to events like football matches for a profit. Sendo, are you referring to ticket resellers like Viagogo, Getmein and West Ham United football club, all of whom buy previously sold tickets and resell ...

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

I'm not sure passing on a ticket to a friend at face value - if that's what you're insinuating they might have done - is the same as a person or company deliberately buying up tickets and selling them for a profit every week. But is it the same as an individual or company buying a ticket and passin...

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

Definitely report the seat owner as a tout. These people are absolute scum of the earth, taking seats that should be for genuine fans and skimming off a profit. Any evidence of touting or a profit being made by anyone in what the OP described ? The OP is a newbie - welcome by the way - so none of u...

But this is the mess the club has created.
Maybe they listen to the wrong people ?

Certainly for the wrong reasons.

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

Obviously with the Corporate renewal rate being so poor the club is scratching around for every penny of matchday income it can. I wonder how Karren is getting on driving up the sponsorship deals ? Tell you what a good comparison would be is the matchday and sponsorship income for THIS season ( whic...

Re: 2019/20 Benchmark Thread

Diasppointing to see we are already falling behind last seasons run rate, especially with a trip to Goodison next up, what with Silva fighting for his job and all that.

I quite fancy the blunts to come to our place and try and get a draw as well.

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

Is there any evidence of the tickets the OP referrred to as being sold for a profit ? There are different people sat in the Boleyn Bar in and around me every single week , I just assume the tickets get shared around by white van man "corporate" customers to their customers and that the club endorses...

Not my route so I've never seen it.

Most people I know who end up with a spare ticket can't give it away.

Re: Season ticket misuse – need some advice

The London Stadium is the only sports ground I haven't seen touting outside of. With thousands of empty seats every single week, why would any "tout" waste their time and risk their capital at a venue where margins would be slim to negative ? Hot on the heels of the ticketing discussions over the pa...

Re: Update on where you think we'll finish

What have we taken , a point less from the first 8 games than we did from the corresponding fixtures last season ?

I reckon we'll finish 10th. Same as last year.

Pretty sure Everton will be looking for a new manager right now.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

I agree that nobody had a shocker, but as a team, we didn't play well enough to win. We looked quite slow and predictable for much of the game and Palace looked fairly comfortable at dealing with our attacking threat. Teams like palace will dig in and wait for mistakes .luckily for them we give awa...

Fmob, we lose a game and the Noble haters are out in force immediately ?

He played well today . . Again. Or should i say, yet again.

Nobody had a shocker today, nobody.

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

Thought we generally played ok , created enoigh chances and should've got at least a ppint. Palace had the rub of the green today and nicked a couple of points. We're not scoring enough, we're not getting enough players in the opposition box often enough. Disappointed but not overly crtical of what ...

Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Crystal Palace: Match Thread

I'm not too sure where all the confidence abaout scoring goals is coming from, we've scored just 2 more than Aston Villa who reside in the bottom 3, and Palace have conceded just 7 goals all season, with four of those coming from Tottenham. They'll be double diffcult to break down, with an old fashi...
