They were opportunists who struck a good deal for a club with a massive potential for resale.
I don't blame them for that, that's what smart business people do. Its the b*llocks that have gone with it, the razzle dazzle.
I did believe them at first because I can see what the club could be with the move etc. and if they were truly fans then we could be a big club.
I would have even gone with it more if they were a little more honest and said "look, we have moved, its going to take a few years but the long term goal is to be pushing up the league.." instead we got a load of bs about the plans for the stadium and the squad compared to reality, and the fact that they haven't invested at all. It was all about them and the lining their pockets. Nothing about the best interests about this fantastic club.
I don't mind the stadium, its not UP and its not without its problems but I would swallow it for the successes it should bring. Arsenal have a lovely stadium and the Spuds will do too. We had to move with the times and this should have been perfect for us, much like Man City. We should have been involved in its development like City's ground instead of waiting for the hand me down.
They have also failed to really put a soul into it, its just the **** Poundland bunting them put around it rather than properly investing in it.
I, along with others can see them for what they are. The spin, lies and self interest will continue for as long as they can get away with it. As soon as they can sell for the maximum amount they will sell up and I cannot wait.
West Ham fans my arse.
