Actually HU didn’t have a chance to put their point across did they..
If they would have put a different representative on air, then yes, they did.
If you are saying they wouldn't, that's something different.

Surely the important point is to get the message out there, not who is delivering it.
I agree. A missed opportunity. Lack of media savvy here.

Is it possible they were trying to drive s wedge between Kumb and Hammers United by dropping the chairman from HU and offering it to Kumb

I reckon the club had all their little snides ready to pile in as soon as Kumb opened their mouth.

The club are desperate to divide us, well done Kumb for sacking Talkshit off.

Don't disagree with that. But all I see is "it's not about us being ****, we're used to it".
But that's accurate. We were used to it. We are used to it. How many times have we finished in the top six, in the last 40 years?
Twice, 1986 & 1999.
How many times since G&S took over?
Zero.


Which is only true to an extent.
To what extent?

Not addressing that at all is giving the likes of Moose ammunition.
How is us saying that we're usually sh*t, NOT addressing it?
Moose doesn't sound like he needs any ammunition.
He does however, sound like he has a pro-board, agenda.


Would be much better to say that "of course performances on the pitch are an element, but only a small one". Rather than denying it completely.
Of course performances on the pitch are all part of the anger. The performances on the pitch have been especially poor since the move.
It would appear that 'Moose', by ONLY talking about poor performances & results, is someone in complete denial, about every other issue.

I still want to know WHY, TalkSh*te were able to ban PC from being on the show?
His West Ham stadium ban should have nothing to do with TS.

Just for clarity chaps, TS also held another of our committee on the line for a good twelve minutes as the guy on the end of the phone argued with the producer to get him on.

So this was a HU snub, as well as a Bubbles snub - a reason for the first snub was given.

The reason for the second was “we’ve gotten the Moose to cover it now and are out of time”.

The result is that they are getting a bit of a bashing across social media, with questions about their censorship and associations with West Ham’s commercial team being fielded.

Hammers United have once more stayed classy.

Huge respect to the boss for playing it the way he did.

Shame on talksport for its biased coverage of a great protest.

Still maintain that results certainly, and maybe performances as well, would paper over the not inconsiderable cracks to an extent. At least for some people. But then being right next to the pitch and everything else still being the same would as well.
Absolutely.

But, the performances and results haven't been good. Most of us believe the reasons for that stem from the club not being run in a professional way in any area.

If it were then the stadium might be the only issue, and we might be able to get past that.


They have never done the things necessary to get the fans onside.

Moose should know what west ham fans think of him. To be fair what most people think of him. A brown nosed embarrassing pillock.

The club had their snide speaking live on air unchallenged.

Glad you see that as a victory for the fans though.

I have always believed that 'red card' protest we held at The Boleyn many years ago, was the catalyst for bringing about the end for Brown and his cronies. Is this an idea, or not ?

I’ve never listened to talkSPORT in my life, hearing HU would be on, I swiftly tuned in waiting in anticipation.

I then had the pleasure of listening to absolute b*llocks from that creature moose. He even referenced ‘that chap who ran on with the corner flag’... conspiracy...

We’ve got ‘em rattled. Keep up the momentum.

The movement for change feels completely different this time, because of the people behind it.
Those at the helm of HU, KUMB and WHUISA are showing their integrity, Gold, Sully & Brady won't know how to deal with that.

Integrity to them, is like holy water to a vampire!

Bait and switch: page 1, paragraph 1.

1) Invite someone on from HU to talk about fan dissatisfaction with GSB. Someone you know full well has a banning order, issued in the aftermath of a previous, spontaneous protest against GSB.

2) Advertise their appearance to attract listeners interested in hearing more about what’s going on at WH, from the protestors side.

3) Withdraw their invitation on the grounds that they .. er .. have a banning order. Forgetting to mention that you’d known all about it when you invited them on in the first place.

4) Replace them at the last minute with a shameless board-whore, already employed by your station.

5) Listeners tuning in to hear the ‘fans’ side of the argument, get an uninterrupted propaganda broadcast from the club instead.

6) Board-whore gets another free apple-pie to selfie himself eating in a stadium sub-basement, and TS listeners walk away none the wiser about GSB’s running of the club.

This should definitely be looked at.
I thought exactly the same thing Saturday while watching the game. Would've loved to have seen most in the stadium holding up a red card on the 10 minute mark.

We need a visual protest that looks good on tv and newspapers.

Great idea in conjunction with other protests.

More angles = better coverage.

As I was listening to the questions being put to the Moose I was speaking to the poor lad taking calls explaining that I could answer that question, and that question and so on.

He took all the details but explained they had opted for the Moose in the end for this feature. He told me all he could do was bring this to the attention of his producer and ask if they could invite us back on later in the week. He said try calling the Sports Bar later.

I made the point, politely I must add, that Moose has had his say on this issue a few times. I asked if perhaps someone else should be given a chance. I also floated the idea that perhaps Hammers United should be given the opportunity to answer the question "what do Hammers United want?" rather than asking the Moose to answer on our behalf.

Tbf, he understood, but he doesn't control the station.


HOWEVER - yet again, I believe the club have conspired to encourage people to join HU better than we ever could!! :scarfer:
