i don't think anyone can give an accurate estimate, i bet plenty like me who have never had anything to do with HU and won't be known to any membership register will be there purely to repesent themselves.

Superb, further evidence that these clowns don't know what they are doing, they would have been better off keeping schtum this week, but they couldn't help but try and get their sycophantic media mates to spin things their way, but instead have just managed to stir up more ill-feeling resulting in more bodies at the protest.
They're absolutely clueless, talk about fighting fire with fire...

I don't think I know anyone who is a member. I'm not.

Anyone else excited about tomorrow?

Mega Ron,
Top man.

I think Moose's flippant dismissal of tomorrow's static demo will just act as a further rallying call to those that feel sick to the back teeth of the current regime.
The guy really is an idiot.
Completely agree Mushy. Anyone unsure of going needs yo listen to that interview

They are running scared, running to all their old pals in the media to try and save face. Yet again an example of how they lie and spin.

Please don't let this pressure and good work fall away like last time. We must come together as a fanbase tomorrow to save our club.

Making a fact sheet to hand out at games might help with getting the message across and help with the propaganda war.

A leaflet informing people of Sullivan’s lies, just brief bullet points with the facts, like our 10 year net spend compared to clubs like Brighton & Bournemouth, the strange sale of the Boleyn etc.

People love truths and facts.
Since the move:

- NET Spend - West Ham £126.28m - Brighton (3 years) £186.59m - Bournemouth - £126.32m
- Ground Capacity - West Ham 60k - Brighton - 30.6k - Bournemouth - 11.3k

2019/20 NET Spend (not including the top 7 clubs):

1- Villa £133.74m
2- Wolves £81.54m
3- Brighton £58.73m
4- Sheffield Utd £42.75m
5- Everton £35.46m
6- Newcastle £29.48m
7- Southampton £28.98m
8- West Ham £27.9m
9- Watford £22.5m
10- Bournemouth £19.76m
11- Norwich £3.3m
12- Burnley £0.54m
13- Palace -£43.34m

Please correct me if my stats are wrong....but....NEXT LEVEL???.....looks like we are going down a level...

Not as many as those having a beer in one of the nearby overpriced bars.

That’s brilliant and from the bottom of my heart I thank you (both for attending and also for this post) it’s one of the messages that HU is trying to get out there. You don’t have to join or have affiliations to any group. It costs nothing. You don’t have to speak.. just be there..
We need people like you BD..
in fact we need ALL WH fans who have gripes about the way our great club is run to come along and stand with us under the banner of...
“West Ham United For Change”

Ron
Looking at twitter and social media I’d say lots are excited about tomorrow.
And just to clear something up you don’t have to be a member of HU or any other group to attend. It’s free, and will be a chance for likeminded supporters old, new, whatever, to show that they are not happy with the way the club is currently being run.
So come along if you fancy it. If you don’t that’s fine too as you, like everyone else, is equally entitled to your own opinion.
Hope this helps..

I'll be travelling up - probably alone. I'm trying to get a few others to come with me but its not looking likely. I've also just got a ticket for the game, but I'm looking forward to the protest more.

This is so important - all of us must do our best to be there.

Just listened to David Gold interview with Ian Abraham’s, never have I heard the word PROMISE mentioned so many times, as I was slipping in and out of consciousness I heard PROMISE mentioned again and thought we’d signed Quincy then realised it was probably another broken PROMISE. David might have to take a long jump into the sand pit if he keeps up this garbage nonsense
