Personally, I just can’t think why they haven’t released the accounts yet :eh:
They've taken a load of money out I expect.

And everyone involved would receive a life ban and a criminal record.
Yes, worth repeating.

Minimum with a guilty plea (and there's no real defence), 500 quid, 3 year Banning Order and Club life ban. Conviction on file, affects job and visa applications.

Oh and banned from TalkSport...

They were due to take 43m, I think, out of the Club this January in repaid shareholder loans.

The only announcement has been on Claret and Dave when it was said the payment has been 'deferred'.

how about A4 size leaflets handed out and held up throughout the game saying BOARD OUT cameras will focus on it. then we can have a rousing rendition lies lies lies
Doesn't need to be so bad, A5 or 6 handed out on the approaches, go the same route as the ban the bond protests and make it a red card with board out in white. Every time a foul goes in on one of ours thousands would be held up and the media can't ignore it. Easy.

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
The one that has been most catchy and used (for a period) was the Payet one. Not exactly the simplest chant.

Ludo's song still gets a regular outing and again not exactly simple.

While I broadly agree with the principal it's not always the case.

Liverpool AWAY.
Hammers United committee.
We can confirm that we are looking to do something at the Liverpool Away match. We are talking to the relevant parties and will make a full statement tomorrow.
Many Thanks, Hammers United committee.

Good. Away support will be fully behind it and more effective than at home where vocal fans are spread round the ground.
Might be our last trip to Liverpool for a long time too.

If it’s Twist & Shout, maybe something like;

Get them out
Get them out
C’mon c’mon c’mon c’mon dildo’s now
We know what you’re all about

I dunno, just an idea.

There was a second verse, but I thought wishing death on them might be overstepping the mark .. slightly.

*clears throat in an Aled Jones like fashion*

F*** off, Sulli
You know we want you out
And Goldie, you can f*** off, too
And take that Brady trout

How about a song that will rile Sullivan and embarrass Gold, while not containing any language foul enough to annoy the pc brigade.

Something like,

Get out of our club
Get out of our club
Dildo brothers
Get out of our club
