I had to endure bottles of wine for the journey home as everything else was gone. I think I got vodka and coke or something like that but other than the bar had been pillaged.

oh yeah, ****!

Really? How do my opinions contradict themselves? We've still got a chance of staying up, why waste it by hurling stupid remarks at the players/management/board, when we could be supporting the team?

Not been to DW before, I've heard something about a "marquee" for away fans? Anyone know anything about that?

Still trying to decide if I'd be willing to part with £50 to travel on train, instead of the club coach...hmm...

Neil go to the matchhday travel section there is a coach leaving from Harlow £28 each

I also just got loads of paper streamers in the away kit colours and some inflatable hammers, the only problem with the hammers are they have got stars and stripes on them, looks like the football genius will have some support on Sunday!!

I actually think it's hypocritical of you to call someone else a massive **** for posting a few jokey songs.

Below is what you posted a few days ago, comparable to some of the best work of Harry Enfield as Kevin the teenager.

Gonna stay at home, enjoy a lie in and avoid the football. And I wont offer my seat either. I want it to be empty, with the thousands of others.

A few jokey songs? The whole threads overriding with them. There was another thread about banners also.

It was pure hyperbole (as I pointed out) as a response to the nonsense that people were posting about that game. Many posts made it seem like "if you don't go to Sunderland game, even if we are down, then you're not proper West Ham". I was reacting to that.

West Ham buoyed by Scott Parker's return from injury

Parker will hope to inspire West Ham's survival West Ham's influential midfielder Scott Parker is set to return to action for their must-win Premier League game at Wigan on Sunday.

Parker, 30, has missed the club's last four games, during which the rock-bottom Hammers have picked up one point as they try to stay in the division.

He trained on Wednesday for the first time after an Achilles tendon problem.

In April, England midfielder Parker was named Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers' Association.

West Ham are four points adrift of safety with only two games remaining, meaning Avram Grant's side probably have to win both to stand any chance of staying up.

They will move above Wigan with a win at the DW Stadium on Sunday, before playing host to Sunderland on the last day of the season on Sunday 22 May.

Midfielder Jack Collison, who has just returned after more than a year out with a serious knee injury, says the players are doing everything they keep to try and keep West Ham up.

"The boys are working hard, the staff have put the hours in, but it is a matter of going out there now and doing it," said Collison.

"We have talked all season about how we are good enough to get out of it, but the league table does not lie and we have a cup final next week and the following week.

"We need two wins and hopefully that is enough."

There was a thread the other day about this but i can't seem to find it. I for one will be treating sunday as a massive premership party so bringing all sorts inflatables, confetti and which ever i can get my hands on. Everyone should follow suit :thup:

Good on yer mate. Might send the wrong message to the players and Grant though....would mix it up with a few "your not fit to wear the shirt" and "Grant out" if you don't mind. Only good thing about West Ham is the fans at the moment....we need to show our strength of feeling to the owners.
