6,000 extra seats.

FA cup kit (didn't we actually have a similar problem the last time we did this with that purple kit where we were suddenly reminded to wear it at the last possible opportunity or face a fine?).

What's next on the 'announced before having the proper permissions in place' tombola? We'll probably find Gold never declared a previous bankruptcy on the tenancy agreement for the OS and it's null and void.

Actually that wouldn't be too bad. Until we end up ground sharing with the Clapton Ultras.

Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
I was surprised we didn't wear it at Man U away in the FA cup.

Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
I think its a nice piece of merchandise in its own right regardless of whether we ever play in it.

Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
Wrong again your stupid defence of club bullshit, OtB?

Don't you ever think, "I best not, I'm no doubt going to be wrong" and decide not to bother?

OTB

I'm not sure if it's because of a different crest, per se, but moreso that the union jack is there. someone posted below that the UJ is only allowed on sleeves i think?

Thanks Swans, although that was posted below 12 minutes before you and I've acknowledged it....

Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
Trevor B - here's the club confirming it...

http://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2016/august/01-august/commemorative-thames-ironworks-kit-unveiled

Second paragraph - "The Commemorative Kit echoes the very first to be worn by Thames Ironworks FC – the Hammers’ forerunners – and will mark the official opening of the Club’s new home on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, as well as being worn during our FA Cup campaign."

Dr Moose 5:13 Tue Jan 10
Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
I actually like that kit, can you still buy it? I checked on the OS and its not there anymore.

On The Ball 5:09 Tue Jan 10
Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
Well I don't believe it's a third kit as such as it has a different crest and therefore couldn't be worn in the PL, so it wasn't described as that.

Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
ITB

I don't believe they did, it was in the press that it would be worn in the FA Cup but I don't recall anything from the club, they called it a commemorative kit rather than a third kit. This piece from Hugh seems to suggest the club knew it couldn't be worn in competition and seems to confirm that the issue is the Union Jack flag, not the sponsor.

"Unconfirmed rumours suggest the Thames Ironworks original Union Jack badge with TIW FC written on it might adorn the third shirt.

If true, this means the shirt can not be used in competitive matches but could be used in friendlies with the speculation that West Ham could wear it when the Hammers meet Juventus on Sunday 7th August in the former Olympic Stadium."

Re: Cock Up with 3rd Kit...
Ah, I didn't remember this one as being one of those, thought it was just the last two.

They said:

Sure letting us wear it for the whole 25 minutes our FA Cup campaign lasted wouldn't have hurt anyone...
