but spending money on the first team ? - nah
A supporters group asking them to spend on the first team won't make them do so but it will question their intentions.

Much better than doing nothing.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

I don't feel that any supporters clubs anywhere have any right to ask the club to invest. it's not their remit. and who is to say how much should be the spend ? Why not ? Surely if clubs with a 12,000 capacity or 30,000 with the expense of their own stadium you have to question why they can spend m...

Re: Protests against the board being planned

it was NEVER going to be a state of the art stadium because the roof wouldn't cover the fans even if the seats were pitchside - which again was never going to happen due to the rake. 100% right mate, thats my point. They promised something they couldn't deliver. The only people who were going to en...

Gritting my teeth I have to say at the time the move was originally planned it was a platform to increased revenue.
The clubs or the owners ? We all went along with it because they promised the next level on the pitch and a state of the art stadium. Time has proved they lied.

they told people they were going to change everything for the better. Well, they haven't
So why be little people who want to let them know what they think about that ? It's our club for a life time whilst they are milking it short term.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

the problem with just staying away is that they already have our money Exactly right. They are sanitising our support and yet are more than happy because they a selling out for every game. At 2-0 down against Spurs and the stadiums dead, our support could have got us back in the game ten years ago....

Re: Who was responsible for signing Roberto?

Irrespective of whoever scouted him, opted for him, and made sure we signed him up, it really doesnt help the team when the crowd are laughing, jeering and sneering at our own goalkeeper... :oops: We are all frustrated by how bad he has been but can someone tell me how they think it helps the team ...

Re: Manuel Pellegrini West Ham United’s 17th manager

Each of our last four managers has appeared to put out teams who appear to show a complete lack of interest after a promising spell. Maybe they see a chance to push on, are not backed by the board and think theres no point in trying.

Re: David Sullivan - Has he taken us as far as he can ?

Problem is, he would say that circa £600m is a fair price and is the asking price for a Premier League club in a prime location with a fabulous world-class stadium with 60k fanbase. Wouldn't the price be the same as any mid table prem club minus the cost of their ground as an asset ? All we are wor...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

A normal reinforced concrete structure should last much longer than that. To quote the Eurocode - Basis of Structural Design: The upper tier isn't concrete. It was put up with the option to sell it on after and just leave the lower tier as an athletics stadium. So if they were going to sell it on i...

Re: The lies that tarnished West Ham's good name

In so much as Mccabe took the action he did the rulings were 100% as a result of his greed. Our stupidity in compounding one mistake with another broke a rule, but didn't relegate SU, their own sporting incompetence did that. Exactly, a ruling where Henry Winter gave edivence that Tevez beat Man ut...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Taff, I think we need to be a little careful before labelling supporters. We have loads of very "real" supporters who buy corporate packages, sit in lounges and attend awards ceremonies at huge cost to themselves. Just to clarify, a real 'away' supporter is someone who puts in the miles wether you ...

Re: Away tickets 2019 / 2020 season

Judging by the number of calls I got from WH at renewal time trying to get me and as many others that I could rope in to upgrade to corporate that INCLUDED away tickets. I would say without a doubt it was. Seeing as away tickets are limited i'm surprised there isn't a premier league rule to offer t...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

Configuring the ticketing to the ends of the bridges leaving the doors open to the stadium was good Configuring the fences, once you'd entered the island, to close off the West Ham shop must have been a kick in the teeth to our owners. I reckon a lot of the American baseball fans might have purchas...

Cresswell is a good left back who can put in a very decent cross. Masuku is not a left back.
