So, Dave, in the spirit of discussion, what is it that makes you continue to post about the team on here? I am NOT criticising this, ...
I know you're not Proph - you're one of the good guys.
To answer your question I still post on here because despite not considering what we currently have to be in any way, shape or form the West Ham I remember and recognise I haven't given up in believing we can get some of it back. Much has gone. Much can't be got back. But there is still stuff that can be salvaged. Trouble is the longer the parasites remain the less there will be to salvage.
So no, I have no pride in the team, no care for its results. I see merits in relegation, the chance that it would bring for change (please anyone intending to say there's less chance of them going in we go down - I've heard it all before and I don't believe it for a moment. So without being able to bring myself to actively wanting us to be relegated I don't care if it happens because good things could just come from it. I take no pleasure in writing that by the way.
But just to be clear I do have massive pride in West Ham, just not today's version. A version pretty much hated, and sadly rightly so, by so many fans of other clubs because of the spivvy, classless, grasping, root-less West Ham our current owners have created in their own image.
I reserve my pride for mates who like me have been to four figures worth of games over the decades but who will never step in that place again until the scum have gone. I have pride and huge respect for those lads and lasses who gathered before the game to say enough is enough and that we are better than this because we always were and we can be again. That's the pride that remains for me Proph - I truly hope that one day I have pride in the team again. I want to be able to care about it again. That won't be just yet but I really, really hope it happens bud.
