Great piece.

Don’t think they’d appoint an energetic manager who’d be allowed to build from the bottom upwards if we went down though.

They’d just let Moyes crack on and task him with getting us up at the first attempt, carbon copy of what they did with Allardyce. Good luck to ‘em getting bums on seats in The Bowl if that happens.

They'll need a scapegoat if relegated though, Moyes fits that bill obviously

The Talksport stance re Paul Colborne is a strange one.

In the lead up to the Burnley game and the planned march in 2018, the same Talksport afternoon show had one of the guys behind the RWHAG on a couple of times. Now whilst the guy wasn't subject to an FBO at the time, he was awaiting sentencing for various, pretty serious, offences... That was alright though yeh ?

Following the success of last week’s protest Hammers United can announce that the next protest will before the Southampton match on February 29th.Full details will be announced as soon as possible.
Last Saturday led to a raising of our profile and of the campaign Westhamunited for change.More West Ham supporters are joining by the hour and we are very confident that there will many many more on February 29th than last Saturday.
Make no mistake,the club will make every effort to discredit and derail our campaign.They have considerable resources behind them.-And it is evident that elements of the Press and Media will back them no matter what.
We have only one real resource.-But it is the greatest of them all.-The ordinary West Ham Supporters who are fed up with the way our club is being run.We look to you our members,friends and fellow supporters to spread the word,join us in this just campaign,and get our message out there to all the world. Westhamunitedforchange.
Thank-You.

… and the journalist describing Pellers' personality as' like a garden shed' I would also think, very accurate

Looking back, the most energetic manager they have ever appointed was probably Barry Fry.
What more can you say?

Sky are the same stable, TOMoS
Not anymore, Murdoch sold Sky to Comcast.

Put some of the money from that into NewsUK buying Wireless, owners of TalkSport.

I wonder how they found out Paul had a FBO.

I know the social media bit has been touched on before... but I noticed that on the David Gold wishing a happy birthday to David Martin tweet - a number of people have posted a reply saying GSBOUT. A couple have posted a KUMB post from this very thread about the similarities we have with Birmingham.

It would be good to have a something we could continuously post in reply to anything on social media related to West Ham with all of the things (or at least a handful) of the things we are unhappy with. I could write it up on my phone in notes but hopefully someone with some more skills could do something better. It would get the things we are unhappy with spreading through social media a bit more and hopefully help to build the momentum we started on Saturday.

They will be very aware of developments and seeing that this protest in gathering pace and clearly is not going away anytime soon, surely they must in private moments, stop to consider, why is it, we were despised by our own supporters at Birmingham, to the point, they had other option other than to jack it all in and now things are being repeated at West Ham.

Dear Karren Brady, David Gold and David Sullivan: Hammers United and its supporters will stand together again on 29 February 2020. On each of the 40 days following this announcement, in the build up to that fixture versus Southampton, we will suggest one goodwill gesture you can implement to begin to signal your intent to positively engage in ‘West Ham United for Change’.

We will also continue to work tirelessly to help you to fulfil your pledge from 10 years ago to “listen to supporters” by developing an independent and democratic construct to engage in dialogue with the club. This construct will allow us to further explore ‘West Ham United for Change’; the banner that brings the West Ham family together.

It is our wish that on 29 February we are able to look to the future and share with our members the progress you have made and the positive intent you have signalled as we stand once again, together; Hammers United, West Ham United for Change.

Day 2, Goodwill gesture 2:

In the coming days, we think it would be fantastic if you could use your media contacts in TalkSport, Sky or The Evening Standard to express a desire to see Rail Seating introduced at the London Stadium.

Many thanks, Hammers United Committee.
