OLAS Fanzine could* make comeback
Hi all,
Before you shoot the messenger... having family in common with OLAS founder Gary Firmager and speaking to him he is adamant he won't come back and sell OLAS at West Ham due to his stubbornness towards the board, the new gaff and feeling like because of the power of social media that OLAS isn't needed anymore.

I've convinced Gary that OLAS was loved by fans, it was a homely enjoyable West Ham fanzine cherished by fans and despite his reggae djing he WILL return ONLY if this Facebook page gets 5000 likes - https://www.facebook.com/BringBackOLASFanzine/

This does seem like an impossible task as 5000 likes is a hefty amount however we've already gained 590 likes in 24 hours and despite myself being caught up in Twitter and social media I do feel I'd prefer reading OLAS than watching trolls on Twitter.

Please help support OLAS and bring it back... WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT... like this page here - https://www.facebook.com/BringBackOLASFanzine/

Re: OLAS Fanzine could* make comeback
If I was going to grab something to read on the train home I'd take OLaS everytime over a programme but as mentioned earlier it was irritating to read reports on matches I'd been to written by people who'd watched it on a dodgy stream from new York or Hong Kong

Re: OLAS Fanzine could* make comeback
'Fortunes always hiding' was my favourite and was genuinely funny. The FAH style 'once per month' publication was also much better than the more regular ones that had to put a load of boring articles in to fill up space.

Once upon a time I bought them all but I grew quickly bored of the OLAS 'weekends away with the lads' type of articles as they were all so similar with their drinking/shagfest escapades, with a little bit of watching the team, thrown in.

Ultimately, Internet football forums were the final nails in the coffin for the majority of fanzines.

Re: OLAS Fanzine could* make comeback
Gary is a good bloke, doesn't deserve any stick and certainly doesn't need a Post 96er setting up a 'how many likes?' campaign

Re: OLAS FANZINE COULD* make comeback
The bits that Firmager wrote were usually the only bits worth reading.

Last time I bought it, it was half full of articles written by people abroad who watch on telly. If I want those sort of ill informed opinions I'll come on here instead.

Re: OLAS FANZINE COULD* make comeback
I always liked OLAS and thought Gary was a sound bloke. People talk about the "voice of the fans" view and they have a point however anyone was free to write and express their view and I read articles in OLAS which did not go along with his view including a few pro move pieces.

Having said that I think he made the right decision, it was the right time to finish.

Re: OLAS FANZINE COULD* make comeback
its done. Not only has the club changed beyond belief the social media monster consumes everyone, all the time.

WHy people still buy a programme is beyond me

Re: OLAS FANZINE COULD* make comeback
I used to buy them all years ago, but FAH is the one that stood out.

My post match routine involved visiting the much missed Sportspages sport book shop off Cambridge circus and stocking up, as well as reading other clubs'. For a while I worked in the building next to it and my office looked down into the shop, so I was in there most days. I miss the 80s sometimes.

Re: OLAS FANZINE COULD* make comeback
OLAS was great when it started.... then got pretty boring for me... FAH and On a Mission were superb and as cutting as you could get... was great reading on a train home or a long away day

Gary is a good lad..always put himself out for spares at aways and general shit.

Re: OLAS FANZINE COULD* make comeback
I never liked Firmager, I agree he always saw himself as 'The Voice of the Fans' and I found myself disagreeing with him by default because of it but I agree with him here, it's better left in the past. Plus it was never that good really anyway, was it, in all honesty?

FAH was always the KING of West Ham fanzines by a fucking country mile.
