How many support West Ham and listen to TalkSport? How many use Ladbrokes or Paddy Power or Selco? How many already aren't using any of these goods and services? Just boycott the station. It is tabloid radio.
We need West Ham fans to not phone in.

I understand what you're saying coops, but will a small percentage of disgruntled West Ham fans, boycotting the station and its sponsors, make any difference to a station which broadcasts to millions?
Millions and KUMB refused to talk to them? :o :?

It would be far more fun to sabotage every phone in they do.

This 100% !

They know full well that we are angry at the minute so will do whatever they can to get us calling. It's all baiting and there's always a few of our support prepared to rise to it.

If we don't call they'll ignore discussing our club and tbh I couldn't care less about that

better off boycotting betway than talk sport advertisers, if everyone stopped using one of the clubs sponsers and made it loud they were doing it would hurt the board more, sully would hate to have to explain to a major sponser why their name is dragged into the negativity

Have you read the stories?
We should be concerned about our association with Betway, not the other way round.

Honestly don’t understand why anyone listens to it?

Modern football is loathsome enough without adding even more of Alan Brazil and Jim White’s voices to that mix.

I appreciate that people are doing this out of our best interests and I appreciate that some on here will think I am a bit of a hampton for saying this, and I really don't want anyone to take this personally, but things like this are going to make us a laughing stock.

Firstly, it's just a bit pathetic, I mean who even are their sponsors? Anyone that advertises on the station? So a handful of people not shopping at Wickes, I am really not sure a) Wickes will notice and B) realise it's WHU fans boycotting them. Secondly, who cares what talksh!te says. I applaud HU efforts but they need to be directed solely at the board not wasting time and effort with things like this.

My two pence worth anyway.

Not because of anything West Ham related, I just find them to be an over the top ***** station with idiotic presenters. Even their actual live football commentary is unbearable too listen to.

Cant stand the station. Tries far to hard to be controversial and a shockjock station.

I couldn't agree more. Cant stand the station.

Bad career move by her to shift to radio.

Her only skill was making a sports news story you'd heard for the 8th time that hour more palatable because of her agreeable boat.

Even better watching her on mute, one hand on the remote...
