Re: ⚽ West Ham United v Sheffield United: Match thread (26/10)

Went to Forest Green v Mansfield last weekend (don't ask) with another iron. We were sitting in the club bar watching the Everton game when in walk 4 blokes wearing Sheffield Utd pin badges who sit down at our table. Turns out they are clocking up the 92 stadiums and are only a handful away. I'm thi...

Re: good old days..

Was that the night game at the end of 85/86 we lost 1-3?

If so I was in the away end which we sold out for what could have been the title decider but ended up a dead rubber (thanks to Chelsea losing at home to Liverpool)

Re: Who was West Hams worst ever Centre Back

Gary Breen playing next to Christian Dailly was just the worst CB pairing ever

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

InterestIng that within that incredible biography the only 'business' mentioned is WHU Where Karren's main achievements have been to take the castle off of our badge and trade our football stadium to rent a multipurpose one - and 3 years in, for no obvious benefit (apart from for Karren and her mate...

Re: Week's other games (4-10/05/19)

We are no closer to winning a trophy as GSB told us getting to the next level could only happen by demolishing Upton Park

That has clearly proved to be wrong and I believe we stand little chance of improving as a club with GSB in control

They've had more than a decade FFS

Re: Kaveh Solhekol: Upton Park now

Don’t forget part of the deal with getting the athletic stadium was that the mortgage on Upton Park had to be paid off first - so in cash terms the club probably had a net outlay as a result of the move

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

David's Cross - do you think it was worth demolishing our home? No improvement on the pitch - 3 bottom half / mid-table finishes No improvement in match day or commercial income The only people who clearly benefited were Sully's mates at Galliard who trousered c£20m for passing on Upton Park without...

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

Whilst I understand the sentiment H11 I think Karren would take more notice if we focuses on what a dreadful job she has done as vice chair

(not sure how you make that into a chant)

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

Whilst assessing the characters of some of Karren's associates is mildly interesting (and I wouldn't hold Karren up as a shining example for my daughter to follow) I think our critical assessment should be on what she has delivered in the role of vice chair of WHU Whilst we currently enjoy similar T...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

The last accounts for the final season at the Boleyn showed match receipts of £27m

£27m x 6.3% = £1.7m increased match receipts

Serious couple of questions - ignoring cup games - what was the last winning goal AC scored for us & in his entire WHU career who many winning goals has he scored?

Re: Taxi for Karren ? Is one due ?

I held a low opinion of Brady for a long time and decided to read her biography to see if I was just judging a book by its cover so to speak. Her book reveals that she really is the awful person she appears to be. Why someone would write proudly about throwing a boy off of a chair so she could sit a...

Re: Gold and Sullivan ???

The answer is in the financial statements published on the club site

The 2010 accounts show interest payable of £3.7m (hardly clipping the club)

The 2016 accoup show interest payable of £6.1m (not really an improvement)
