From Paul at Hammers United
Good Morning all.
So the season has ended.Was it a good one.-Not for me.Some terrible performances and unexpected defeats to teams that couldn’t buy a win.-Some great performances and unexpected victories against top teams.-The biggest bonus to the season being the emergence of Declan Rice.Wimbledon in the cup ruined it for me.Worst cup defeat since Mansfield, 52(I think) Years ago.
More to the point are we any nearer the promised ‘next level’? Have we yet ‘a world class team for a world class stadium’? Have there been any significant improvements to the matchday experience at London Stadium?
After the Burnley match last year the Club looked like they might finally be reaching out to the Supporters but that soon ground to a halt.There are so many issues that should be being discussed.
The Stewarding at the London Stadium remains a matter of great concern.
They formed their O.S.B.-A puppet body which they hide behind when it suits.A body which they didn’t even inform of the season ticket price increases.
They moved seats into higher price bands (underhand to say the least)and Corporate STH’s wishing to downgrade into non corporate areas were told they had to join the waiting list.
They couldn’t even run the children’s party properly.Children were there around 3 hours and were offered a glass of water.-Not a crisp,chocolate biscuit or glass of lemonade to be found.On a more serious note they are introducing a Blockchain based fan engagement platform!!Hammers United have looked at this in depth and a full report will be on here in the next few days.-The club have surpassed themselves with this one.
We are led to believe that West Ham’s net spend in the Summer will be around £25 million.Let us hope that this does not prove to be the case.Leicester,Wolves and Everton will all spend over £100 million so even if we spend astutely it is hard to see how we can improve our league position.Indeed it seems we are slipping ever further behind in the pecking order. Let us hope that West Ham commit to a realistic net spend to give us the best possible chance of success on the playing field.
So step forward Hammers United.We have to hold the club accountable for the broken promises.We have to press for dialogue on the issues important to West Ham supporters.We have to press the club to make available the necessary transfer funds.-And we will.
The close season is here now.Holidays ,a bit of sun hopefully,Champions League final cancelled.But the fight goes on .The larger our numbers the more influence we have.The first aim is to get to 5000 as soon as possible.You ,our members have joined up and made a commitment.-Please in the close season keep spreading the word.If your friends and colleagues are not on facebook point out that they can join by Email, by Emailing us on email@example.comWe
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; have around 3300 members at the time of writing.If each one of you joined just one person up today we would have 6600 overnight!Our Committee is totally committed and we will achieve our aims.
But we need your help.
Onwards and Upwards. Hammers United.
