United no more

Post by Up the Junction » Thu Aug 29, 2019 10:47 am

West Ham have removed the word 'United' from their Twitter and Instagram handles.

I've asked why, but have received no response.

It's been like that for quite some time now, at least on Twitter anyway.

Edit: At least it seems like it's been a few weeks at least, I'm sure it's not just the last few days.

And another act that distances the board from the fans. When will they learn. :(

But there is only one united in the modern game.
Get with the program West Ham London is far less confusing and more marketable.
It's about money from abroad not those annoying match day customers.

:P

Perhaps its in preparation for our rebranding as West Ham Olympic. Brady must not be denied her marketing coup.

Seriously, who cares. It’s a social media handle.

I think people are more worried about it being a sign of things to come rather than what twitter specifically shows our name as.

Or

If it's just a social media handle, why have west ham changed it?

It’s something and nothing. It’s something because we are West Ham United. It’s a sign of disinterest in that what has long been, what we are. It’s nothing in that it’s just another cue of how corporate and fan doesn’t match.

This week, really, should show what happens when football clubs are nothing more than businesses to ownership.

Perhaps we can encourage a few rounds of

"We are United
We'll always be United"


to the tune of If The Kids Are United on Saturday?

Somewhat of an overreaction here, I think. Reasonably certain their would be obstacles in the way of renaming the club (not least of those from the Premier League). The screen shot literally says West Ham United as well, if anyone has checked.
