Re: KODI

Forget Kodi. It's old hat and hard work.

IPTV is where it's at, so I've been told :wink:
Simple as finding a reputable provider, and loading an app on the Firestick, like you would on your phone... so I've been told :wink:

Re: Ticket Office down/shambles

Why haven't you registered him for an account George? My two boys (10 now) have had accounts since they first started doing this online business. Buying cup tickets is a breeze (when the site's working properly). The only pain is that I can't link them both to me so can buy or TT all/any tickets in ...

Re: Stair Lift for Oldies

Done a bit of homework on this subject too as potentially having the father-in-law moving in with us sometime. There's two main types of stair lift, the bolt in the wall type and a modular type that can be fixed into the stairs themselves. The modular is less work and rather than needing custom buil...

I would gladly eat an out of date pack of Football Crazy's if it meant one last munch on those wonders. I think I sent the local cornershop owner into early retirement on my daily purchases of those back in the day.

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

I was told by the FSF that you can’t refuse. Been happening since the move where we enter and at every away game for my little one for years. Really? That's interesting as we've (my lot and all the troop of kids) never had it happen on the bridge (by the Orbit) we go over since the move from UP. Ki...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Don't know if this has been raised yet but there's now a new policy of searching kids at the bridge entrances. Sheff U was the first game I got asked if they could search my two 9 year olds (told them to jog on), and then this Sat, one of the stewards tried to metal-detect one of my boys before I ha...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

There's the rub though BSB1, my love for West Ham on the pitch trumps everything else, like, I suspect, the overwhelming majority of our supporters. One small point though, when the club does something well, or kindly, or good, I do comment on that as well. See my comments on the womens team on Sun...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

@BSB1 Actually, and factually you're wrong. Try trading down from a premium seat to a lower priced one I did when I moved from UP ........you get told you're at the back of the queue, and may not be accomodated if all other seats are sold. That's fundamentally wrong, no disagreement from me but the...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Let's also not forget those supporters who for years paid top dollar for a halfway line seat at the Boleyn ground believing that one day they would turn it in to a concession seat when they became a pensioner. Now of course, no such concession seats exist in prime spots. It's why I now have to pay ...

Re: United no more

. It is a social media handle. Newcastle United - @NUFC We used to be @WHUFC_OFFICIAL then @WestHamUtd. Twitter handles are meant to be short and memorable. @WestHam is simpler than wondering whether it is whufc or United or Utd at the end. Think people need a bit of perspective rather than throwin...

Re: A plea for common sense: time to end the media blackout

maybe I missed that - but I would guess that people on here would have pointed out it wasn't the board's fault specifically but if it happens week after week then Shirley someone somewhere has a job to see that even though it's not the board's actual remit with things like that, I "assume" that som...

Not in the slightest Houston.

As we do, I can show you examples of your posts that have been removed. BSB1 - "Why does virtually every new topic (not board related) have to have a dig at the board worked into ir?

Re: A plea for common sense: time to end the media blackout

I see it the same way regarding content and opinion on here, BSB. I can understand why they would be over protective twats about it. Doesn't make it right but I do get it. The main issue is the current big (and growing) divide between fans and the club. Take that Socios thing. Resoundly (and rudely...

Re: A plea for common sense: time to end the media blackout

I'll probably get slammed for this but anyway... The freedom of independence is a poisoned chalice in many ways. KUMB has had content that the club haven't been happy with. Regardless of what we think about such content, it's the clubs prerogative to protect itself (again, regardless of whether we t...

Anyone who thinks that the Brighton shareholder has lent £228m interest free out the kindness of his heart, and therefore should be a model example for our owners, is living in cloud cuckoo land. These people don't do that unless they're getting paid out on it elsewhere. All our owners are doing is ...
