On the eve of tomorrow’s protest I’d just like to say thank you to each and every individual who has backed this. There seems to be a real feeling that this could be the start of something. West Ham United is not done yet. Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow ⚒
The mistake every club made in the 70s & 80s was that West Ham wouldn't turn up and we did every time time. Sunderland away on a cold Monday night or Newport away in the FA cup. This is what makes this club special and every time someone says we are finished we will just get stronger. After near 50 years I jacked it in last year but cant wait for tomorrow and to catch up with some old mates. I hate what the board have done to this club and my mates and family but will fight the fight until we regain the club that is ours. Its not about the trophy cabinet its about the people you go with and the laughs that you have and more often than not gallows humour. Its the east end way and something worth fighting for. The Boleyn is gone but we can do and deserve better. Lets stick together and show the media and all what West Ham United is all about.

Good luck to all on the protest tomorrow. Stay safe and watch out for anyone who might want to disrupt this peaceful protest!

A quick trawl of chat sites and social media reveals an atmosphere of absolutely bloody seething resentment towards GSB tonight.
One gets the feeling things are reaching critical mass: I reckon there will be a mightily impressive turnout tomorrow.

Living in Southern California, I can't attend the protest, but from afar I am in full support of it.
I personally know a lot of old skool who will be there, but on the flip side my cousin and his season ticket mates who have been life long Hammers did not know about the protest until I asked them if they were going to be in attendance in our Whatsapp West Ham group.
Volunteers at HU have done an amazing job getting the word out there, but it needs every one who gives a **** about our club to help spread the word. :crest:

I hope the protest make there way into the ground. It will gain far more traction than the protests outside as the tv cameras wont focus on it.

All three interviews by the board have done them more damage than good

The protest will get covered in the media.

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.

'Be careful what you wish for?' Not that boring old cliche again.
Short of moving us to Milton Keynes & renaming us MK Hammers, seriously, could anyone do any worse?
Like Noble, why even expect Moyes to slag his employers off? He isn't going to.

he'd be wise to keep his mouth shut on the issue instead of lecturing the support.

but who knows, maybe it's in his contract.

Well stated indeed. We're West Ham and people take notice wherever we go. The board should be no exception!

Wether you agree with the protest tomorrow or not this is by far the most important thing happening around the London Stadium.

When someone collapses and stops breathing, CPR provides their best chance of survival. In the UK there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests a year outside of hospital where the emergency medical services attempt to resuscitate the victim. [1] Fewer than 1 in 10 people survive an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in the UK. [2] When someone has a cardiac arrest, every minute without CPR and defibrillation reduces their chances of survival by 7-10% [3] but the chance of survival from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest can treble by the immediate provision of bystander CPR. [4]
