Another "static protest" apparently, I'm slightly underwhelmed to be honest, I was hoping for a march.

Anyway, I'll be there.

The protest will be a static protest similar to the last one.-But I am sure with at least double the number.I note comments and that some are keen on a march.If we marched tomorrow we would get (in my opinion)6000.
Again my personal opinion,but I believe a successful march needs 10000.We are not yet ready.We have 50 people a day joining Hammers United.We continue to build and spread the message.

I will pass this onto the committee of HU for their advice.
Many thanks

I touched on this in an earlier post but we have some fairly largely followed accounts that we could leverage - aslong as they are 100% on board.
That will be something for HU committee to agree on but West Ham Fan TV, for example, have nearly 20k followers on Twitter alone. A choreographed message sent out via Social Media which cannot be controlled would definitely be effective.

Again, I'm sure there are a lot more experienced marketing people than myself but I feel like social media is a massive tool.

I’ve watched from afar with KUMB but felt the need to actually sign up purely to thank you all who went, Ive moved away from east London and haven’t seen west ham since we left the Boleyn. I didn’t go the protest but reading reports and news you collectively made massive headway, social media reacted well, news papers highlight the pitiful from the owners and the spitefulness regarding the clubs PR tried to spin the days before fell flat on its face.

Fair play to you all and keep the spirit :crest:

How about to the tune of the Spandau Ballet classic:

David Gold
(Gold)
you sold our soul for a bowl
Karren’s not worth a go
Sullivan’s horrible, always believe in, 'cos you are..

The suggestion from Hammers United is to answer any and all tweets from either the club or GSB etc with the following..

Why will you not engage with your supporters like 89 of the 91 football league clubs do?

You will all be sad to hear that our old PA system has passed on. Rest in Peace.

A new, younger, fitter, stronger model will be joining us on the 29th of Feb.
Is it on an 18 month loan with an option ? :D

Does anyone think that HU could get Jeremy Nicholas our old PA to speak at the next protest?

Maybe it's about time we thought about forming a new football club, instead.

:thup: We need to form something. The downward spiral of everything WHU over the last 10 years is rather embarrassing to say the least.

Resounding anti-board songs 2/3 times in the first half today. Hope the TV picked it up.

Nah none of this for me. Hate that sort of **** - “me and my mates created our own club called Irons Thamesworks as a Phoenix from the flames. We’re the real West Ham.”

Muggy as f***. I’d rather just go shopping with the Dorris like a dead eyes mannequin every Saturday or trudge along to Leyton Orient with the strong security that they’re NOT West Ham and therefore I can’t be affected.

Why would you want to do all of THIS again??? Has David Moyes not taught you anything? :wink:

It’s also 100% accepting G&S have won as far as I’m concerned. Our club is 125 years old, they’ve been a bout of thrush we’ve been trying to clear for 10 years.

That's enough logic for one day e17 :wink:

Of course, you are right, but we must be bloody cursed though.
