KISS principal applied with chants

The most effective chant is one that everyone knows the words to and everyone can understand.

Board Out


Singing that non stop is far more impactful than a turgid verse of Oasis

How about instead of walking out early etc, everyone stays in their seat at half time and start the chanting. This of course means no half time food and drink sales - surely a double header...


For those that need to take a p**s, perhaps this could be done during the match - you probably won't miss much...

Good chant we also need something simple and quick to pick up in my opinion to replace "sack the board" from a couple of years ago which makes no sense. I would go for: "you're not fit to run our club"
From alternate sides of the ground to "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep":

Where's the money gone?

That depends on how they exit. Do it via the pitch and it will certainly register!
And everyone involved would receive a life ban and a criminal record.

Ok, here's a starter for 10..........
"You sold our home, sold our home......etc"
To the tune of "Football's coming home"
must be another line derived from "30 years of hurt"?
Anyone?

Day 3, Goodwill gesture 3:

Questions over money have arisen again and last season the accounts were published before the Jan transfer window. We feel that really helped our supporters answer those questions. So, please can the club now share the accounts for 2018/19?

Many thanks, Hammers United committee

I can't wait to see the accounts.

I expect there to be some real gems in there.

At the end of the window we will realize if GS&B will fight this relegation properly by funding recruitments

4 players are needed. Full backs, CM and a pacey forward.

Also, the stadium is half full of day trippers so we won't be persuading them to walk out/not attend anyway.
I doubt they'd notice! Too busy looking at their phones..

“We are West Ham’s clarity and blue army”

“f*** the board” (or sack the board)
