Last nights Bondholders meeting
In a nutshell the club don't want Bondholders anymore and would like to discontinue the whole thing but can't for legal reasons.

They are introducing an amended bond with 14 changes to the original. All designed to piss off the holders.

The view from the retractable seats is awful. The view from the back of the upper tier is worse. If you are a bondholder in the Alpari and think you can choose a similar seat at the OS, forget it. All those seats are reserved, like Wembley for corporate.

8000 seats for away fans at OS. The rest for WHU fans but the current cat 1 type seats at £900 per season will be more like £1200 a season.
Cheaper season tickets for all? Don't think so...

I've been to the Boleyn Ground a lot more than you have, despite going a lot less since it became all seater.

maybe at this point you could mention Charllenes or something you fucking prick.

Side, tbh I don't give a fuck about what you think about anything.

Gareth from 'the office' would cringe at the shit you've posted on here in the last couple years.

'Projection'

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
Hmmm, hard to be calm about a place you worked at for 20 years and also seen the massive change from scrap yards & waste land to Olympic Park, but i am calm as i love the transformation and the fact West Ham will be a big part of it now.

It's the druids and their anything to slag the move with sensational stories of postcode gangs etc who should calm down many of them have never even been to Stratford but love to dig the place as a whole.

"it would be silly of me to form a strong opinion on a place i've rarely visited "

Maybe you should calm down on your views about the move of West Ham United then.

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
You're right i do know very little about that area and club, so can only take the football league show's piece for what it was and form my own soft opinion, it would be silly of me to form a strong opinion on a place i've rarely visited.

There would have been a great opportunity for those with a grievance to share their thoughts on tv as they stood outside the ground on a match day amongst the support. Odd that never occurred as i can imagine BBC cameras causing quite stir that way and Ade Edmonson seemed pleased to have given Chelsea a swerve for Exeter.

i lost a court case down there recently, but did have a lush dinner in some posh gaff right by the court house

one and only time ive been to exeter

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
Penners, I haven't lived there for 20 years tbh, and do take my hat off to the hardcore couple hundred they've got there, who did take the club into their own hands to keep things going, particularly when they went non-league and could've sunk without trace like say Darlington.

But there are not 3,000 people like that - revisit the place enough times to be aware, that the normal match day going crowd, (outside of the aforementioned couple hundred hardcore), are made up of the same type of people, who would've been going in 1976, i.e. they'll have the same amount of happy with anything types vs 'moaners', as pretty much any club in the football league.

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
Ex. would you almost say that the football league show lied to make the situation seem better than it is, and in fact there are loads of people unhappy with things happening in the club?

interesting theory that.wonder where i have seen that before...

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
btw, does the 'they' include the bloke running it, who has recently jacked it in?

"It was almost as if"

It's almost as if you're going on about something you know fuck all about.

You think because a snippet from the football league show, shows a lot of happy bunnies, means the 3,000 who turn up, don't have their fair share of people 'moaning'?

Righto

Side of Ham 10:29 Fri Sep 19
Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
Well EX, the football league show's piece put on a happy front of supporter ownership and them sticking by them no matter what their plight is. It was almost as if they were saying good riddance to the moaners.

WHU(Exeter) 10:18 Fri Sep 19
Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
Oh, ok.

I understood that the bloke running it has just stood down, because of ongoing internal arguments and the average attendance is markedly lower than years gone by?

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
No i watched it EX, otherwise it would have been just as easy to say i'd read on here and made the same conclusion about Exeter City wouldn't it.

A real lack of common sense from you there EX up to early?

Side, no you didn't, you read a thread on here, that half a dozen posters contributed to.

The images of the lower tier always look like it got a decent rake and close to the pitch, can't see it myself there ain't the room.

See a thing about Exeter City FC the other day and there seems to be a nice outlook by it's support no matter the circumstances and they own/run it.

Dapablo, yet another post of yours trying to be clever, and delivering a line, that only a complete and utter fucking idiot would come up with.

"Don't decide to dislike things"

You'd fit in well as a starving peasant in North Korea.

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
You're right, they're going to ensure that those people sitting low down will be looking at the back of people's heads. There will definitely be no complaints if that happened.

Calling people simpletons is a massive sign of insecurity and generally being a bit of a cunt.

Re: Last nights Bondholders meeting
Pagey: You might not like being characterised as a simpleton but you're not making a very good case for not being.
You see, it's quite simple, the inner bowl is not the same one that I presume you sat in during the Olympics. It's new and retractable, and from what I understand the rake is shallower than the original. Therefore it's more likely that your view will be obscured by people in front of you. Still, mustn't grumble, it'll be a bit like standing on the south bank, but miles from the action.
Can any of you pro O.S. explain to me why clubs across europe have been moving out of athletics stadiums into purpose built football stadiums if the athletics stadiums are so great.
