The Stadium was Christened last ...
Has been open a few months now but last night
was the first time it felt a little bit like home..
Night match / London derby / edgy atmosphere /
a bit lively in & outside the ground :-) / Good drink in a shit boozer ( fuck off Westfield )
Hopefully the start of the journey to getting our old West Ham back...

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
Just got back to Oslo, and I have to say that Stepney.Hammer pretty much said it all for me. Only differencd was that I started and went back to the Little Driver and I didn't miss the first goal.

That was a fucking brilliant trip. Yes, we have gone a long way to making it our home, shiny warts and all.

There were times when the noise made the hairs on the back of my neck go up. One particular chorus of Up Your Arse towards the end, I think it started at the Bobby Moore end (I too was in 130) made the sky shake. Looking over at 114 at one point gave me goosebumps seeing them all bouncing up and down rocking the place.

Bets of all, the team did us proud with a mighty display.

I was so afraid it would be shit and I'd be thinking WHU RIP type things, but no, it went better than I could possibly have dreamed.

I'm trying to say a million things at once, so will quit and go to bed; try again tomorrow, save to say, West Ham are alive and kicking, and clearly no bollocksy corporate dibbling will stop us being us.

COME ON YOU IRONS!

IRONS!

IIIIIIRONS!

Just put this in the 'killed our club' thread, but it made me chuckle so much i thought i'd put it here too - i think it's relevant:

"Just watched a video on youtube showing the supposed bother...noticed this comment at the bottom, looks like a young lad but it made me proper chuckle! Well worth a share on here!

""We need to see more scenes like this during games, some fucking violent passion being shown. The average British lout has become passive, been tamed so much by the zoo keepers that he's lost all fight for life and death. I watch scenes like this and I want to come... just wanna close my eyes and let my cock spasm away, shooting sperm and piss all over the gaff. These guys going at it (the true supporters I may add) are fucking heroes in my book... the last few Englishmen with any fight in them at all.""

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
Pragmatically so
The most perfectly designed stadium would still start without history

However, that is a different issue from trying to extinguish the club's DNA

I was happy to see old and young rejoicing in that last night and am of the view now that Brady is bolloxed - we are what we are - ad infinitum

Thankfully

I too was against the move but the sad truth is that football stopped being football when the Premier league was created, it is all about the money now little else, which is very sad.

I am just accepting the obvious and trying to make a positive from this whole affair, I truly think the stadium is great but is it West Ham no not yet anyway that will take over 10 years, we oldies might all have to die off for it to become so.

I know where you are coming from there but I disagree

This is not a result issue, some of my most enjoyable WH times have been days of piss poor defeat in Northern shitholes

Sure a win against those helps in general but the key is us being us and diametrically opposed to Brady's vision of 'customers' - we are West Ham

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
I hope that last night goes a long way to getting most of our fans on the same page regarding the stadium, without success and some decent football you cannot have a great atmosphere last night proved that if West ham perform well the crowd will get behind them fully.

The coin throwing was pathetic from both sets of fans though,

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
chassis, it was my first game in the stadium last night (I had been in there during the olympics). you may have noticed me slogging it off on various threads but I loved it last night. we were in block 232 and the atmosphere was great, obviously it won't be like that every game but I had a great time. little things like plenty of toilets was another big plus, especially when you think back the medieval bogs at the old ground when it was all standing. I'll definitely be going again

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
I really enjoyed it last night, fucking loved it to be fair and the result was merely the icing on the cake, a bonus if you like

Last night there were proper blokes having a right good time, bouncing about and being 'West Ham'.

That means a drink to far may have been taken, an oath may have been uttered, a toe stood on when leaping about and generally playing up but we were one, absolutely proper WH.

That is what that club is all about, us.

Fuck all the corporate, media, new branding bollox - that is what we are and what we have always been and last night it showed that you can try but you will not stop it - ever.

The result and and straightening out of theirs that wanted it by ours that were happy to oblige were merely cherries upon a cake of cake reclamation.

Oh and a footnote on branding, I was with an Italian today and his traditional old money large manufacturing/engineering business, very wealthy and equally educated, consumate industrialist - a Juve fan but his best pal is Lazio.

He spent time when first joining the family firm in London with Mr Lazio at UP and as I had heard elsewhere, is hugely pro WH

Why is that I said - Your fans, very special but as you know all of us Europeans know about your club because of its special fans, that is WH

And that Ms Brady, Baroness of Self Publicity, is what is known as a fucking brand

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
Speaking of smoking. I was grassed by a fan for sparking up last night. Of course I 'get' it's not permitted. But its pretty much outdoors, upper tier stairs overlooking old ford lock. To be fair the steward said he was a bit embarrassed and let me finish my smoke. He said he would take my recommendation of permitted smoking areas in grounds a la stadium mk and most recently Wycombe

As you will have gathered I am many things but a modern day fan is not one of them

Thankfully

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
As I said in the other thread I saw scenes last night thy I've not seen since the south bank. A long way from the sanitised shit we are used to as modern fans

Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
There was never an alcohol ban in the ground it was banned at the kiosks outside

Crassus 9:02 Thu Oct 27
Re: The Stadium was Christened last ...
Made me titter that I have heard all day that the club had an alcohol ban in the ground

Well when we went through the concourse no one seemed to have told the vendors - the party deck was bouncing with happy chappies beer in one hand, fag in another and a bloody great grin

Oh as a foot note, dopey cunts in the media banging on about last night being damaging to the brand - THAT WAS THE WEST HAM BRAND

Fair to say it was all in all a rather jovial 'match day experience'

Never mind the media, the 100 wankers that threw coins/bottles from BOTH sides are embarrasing and has dragged West Ham through the mud again.

The majority of West Ham fans don't deserve that so can the idiots please fuck off and fuck up somewhere else..
