The wrap

Post by ottsands » Wed Feb 16, 2011 5:17 pm

Just getting this out into the public domain in case he deletes my email and claims the idea as his own 8-)

-------
Attn: Ian Tompkins - Brilliant Public Relations idea

Hi Ian

Opportunity:
The government has withdrawn funding for the wrap and it is reflecting very badly on them . . . I imagine we HAVE to get a wrap at some point.

Solution:
West Ham provides the wrap in time for the Olympics and we get a lot of good press, plus our colour scheme will be subtly imprinted on the minds of all the viewers.

Thank me later . . . . (by way of a free Season Ticket)

Regards

Ottsands

It is worth considering how the wrap is installed . . . . looking at the picture of the 'test wrap' I can just imagine some chavvy Hull City supporter will love slicing through it.

I think we'll have to have a solid wall installed with the wrap attached to the top of it.

Same concern for the roof as well.

To paraphrase Frankie Boyle slightly a wrap with the words "**** off Tottenham" in twenty foot high letters would be good value

There were articles a while back that private funding had been supplied for the wrap and plans for it to be done were back on :thup:

Nice try though!

I'm so out of the loop :(

We'll still need to mount ours up on top of a wall though.

You've got to wonder....if the stadium is open apart from the wrap...what's to stop people just squeezing through the wrap into the ground without showing a ticket? :lol:

Also, it'll be ****ing freezing at times.

Get a sponsor's logo on it and we won't have to pay a penny.

We need all the money to ensure we have Retractable Seating on all 4 sides of the pitch.

This would not be put in place until post-Olympics, as Olympic rules prohibit branding in venues.

As the deicion has now been ratified is it not worth investigating the cost of a reversable wrap.

Surely it can't be double the cost to produce the Olympic wrap with a Claret and Blue backing which we can reverse after the end of the games ?

Gotta be a montage all the way round of the history of West Ham, from Thames Iron Works, White Horse Final, Fa Cup win, European Cup win, Boys of 66, Boys of 86, Tomas Repka :lol: and so on to the present day right the way round the stadium.
