When I was a lad I'd say quite a bit - it even had an influence on the college I chose - Bangor Uni had accepted me and my grant had gone there but I ended up at Hatfield Poly so that I could go to West Ham when I could .

As for Kumb , I only missed the last few days coz of a lightning strike [ not me as such , my Hub ] . :wink:

Not as much as it used to. I do miss the Sky teletext pages, used to read our club page without fail every day. Was a time I used to be on this site everyday as well a few years ago but went through a blip. Have started visiting here more regular though the last couple of months. Don't spend so much on merchandise either these days. Was a time when the catalogue came out that I would spend close on 200 quid every season buying replica kit, training tops, books and dvd's (VHS tapes back in the day). Even bought a West Ham tie ffs which I don't think I've ever worn. I am tempted to buy the new home top though for the 1st time in about 7 seasons, do like the design :thup:

Me too. The stadium move really has curtailed my interest. Before I'd had a season ticket and did a few aways every season. Now, it's one or two games a season if that. Still watch a stream when I can but it just isn't the same for me any more.

Far too much. Percentage depends on the results and performance - a poor performance and poor result still ruins my weekends, and that's years after moving 5,000 miles from goal. With matchday KO on a Sat at 7AM Pacific Standard Time a ruined Sat/Sun means about 28% of my life.

People often compare our collective obsession to religion. Not that way with me. It's more like an abusive relationship where I keep on going back for more, time and time again.

Couldn’t put a percentage on it but never far from my mind.

I don't go to as many games as I used to in the 80`s when I went home and away for years.now I spend the time on kumb ! The lists take up a bit of my time as welln :D
looking at the season ahead I will probably get to around 12 home league games and a cheaper cup game
no awaydays for me as don't have the points.
don't buy as much crap from the store as I used to.
might get the new away shirt as it is a blast from my past !

The stadium move has reduced my interest but I still think of west ham everyday and a lot.

IF we ever were successful again I think I would be more into it again but 40 years is a long time ago.
