What do you think of WHO?
For me, WHO is by far the most enjoyable West Ham site. Long may that remain.

In terms of quality of appearance and magazine-style content, it's not the best. KUMB has that sewn up. But KUMB has never really made me laugh - and there have been times when I've laughed to the point of struggling for air at some of the stuff written on here. KUMB has never been my first go-to site for West Ham news. All the WHU news you need is on here more or less at the same time as on other WHU sites.

Maybe it's the anarchy that sets WHO apart. The anything goes attitude, although that 'anything' is rather more restricted than it was some years ago. But that's understandable, as content is increasingly monitored throughout the internet and some of the things that people, particularly black fonters, used to get away with would now have the site closed down in no time. But you can still find that old spirit in the daily WHO life.

Like you probably, WHO has been part of my life for most of the last two decades. The site is lucky to have some excellent posters, even if it's hard to agree with all of them all the time. In fact, it's hard to agree with some of them any of the time. There are some highly intelligent people on this site, and some destined to be forever thick. There are people of all political persuasions and professional backgrounds. Together they all make up the fabric of this excellent site.

And yet, there's a faint aroma of mustiness in the air. A niggling sense that WHO is moving cautiously to the middle of the road instead of flittering all over the place as was its erstwhile wont. Evidence? See the gaps between posts. See the number of match thread posts. See the trend in the number of new people joining up. See Nurse Ratched's reluctance to engage in the kind of barny that regularly raised smiles throughout London and beyond.

WHO needs a kick up the arse.

It needs new blood and, perhaps, an updated appearance and more functionality. Get that and there'll be a fresh wind blowing through these pages. Ignore it and there's a risk that in ten years, WHO will be a haven for a dozen old men reminiscing on old times and spending all day calling each other a cunt.

"About the only thing I'll ever agree with you on that's not football-related - and I'll probably disagree with you on 90% of the football stuff, too"


I get that people don't agree with my ideas or arguments and I get that some will call me names along the way and stomp did all of these things but at least there was a modicum of discourse in our ramblings back and forth. He would tease me with his impish humour, like telling me that Capital was a conservative! Used to make me chuckle and that is what I enjoy about WHO.
I live 4000 miles from my roots and WHO gives me a chance to keep my east London voice, it's like talking to old friends.....even if they don't like you much.

gph, we may agree to disagree but there is one thing you cannot escape from and that is we support a team that has a shit manager and clueless owners!




COYI and long live WHO.

Isn't this justForums?

I used to regularly post on 3 Forums years ago; here, a local one where I live and a poker one. All of them used to be really active, make me laugh, be interesting and/or informative. Now they are all shadows of them selves with slow moving post,s much of the same debates rehashed by the same people and a dwindling supply of regulars.

Forums have had their day.

Goodnight

Re: What do you think of WHO?
I really don't think much about WHO. I used to post a lot more than I do know as I have adopted more of a watching brief and can't be arsed with some of WHO's keyboard warriors.

Overall 6/10

He died, very shortly after his last post on here.

His daughter, I think it was, posted what became a tribute thread.
