It's like being on the snakes and ladders board and we keep landing on the big long snake which starts at 99 and goes to the bottom line.

I think they know. Just aren't willing to do what it takes.

Just like they know what players we need, but aren't willing to spend what it takes.

Supporting West Ham is like slowly climbing up a hill covered in snow only to slip a few hundred yards from the top and end up at the bottom again.

Think 60's Cup Winning teams and the early 70's crap that followed. Winning the Cup in 75 but relegated shortly afterwards. Nearly winning the League in 86 and getting relegated not long afterwards. Close to wining the Cup in 06 and relegated not long afterwards. Having arguably our best team in years only a couple of years ago but now absolute dross. It's been a familiar pattern since I have been a supporter.

Probably the best period was from 1980 till 1986 and even that had ups and downs because if I remember rightly we were pretty shit the year before we came 3rd.

Re: Where have we fucooked it?
I don't think they do El.
They wouldn't be capable of identifying and employing a manager who would actually take the club forward. Even if they did, Sullivan would interfere and undermine him.
They are not forward thinking, too old school and insecure to let someone else have control and take credit.

Supporting West Ham is like being Tantalus from Greek mythology. Never able to eat the apples from the branches or drink the water that he has to stand in for eternity.

I'd say the owners DO know what it takes to progress- but are unwilling or unable to commit.

Which is worse than not having a clue in my book.

Re: Where have we fucooked it?
Newcastle of the south?

Newcastle is a one club town. If you are from Newcastle you support them so it's a captive audience. Yet despite all that I can clearly remember them plummeting to the old fourth division and having crowds of ten thousand or so.

We've never played in a lower league than the old second division, we're FAR from the most successful club in LONDON alone yet manage to regularly draw 60,000 punters to our 'cesspit' to the amazement of other clubs (how many times did two-bob supporters of other clubs say to you 'you'll never fill that stadium'?) and even some of our own fans.

As Branded rightly says we might have shitty owners but we're a fantastic business. They could put claret and blue glitter on their shit and someone would buy it.

I think our only hope of progressing to everyone's satisfaction is to fuck the athletics track off, demolish the bit where the directors sit (hopefully while they are sitting in it) and move the seats in the West Stand closer to the pitch. The East stand doesn't seem to have the same problem as the West as it's not full of corporate boxes and a directors box.

The problem is that while they are getting such a great deal renting the place and whilst it's full every week why would they bother to change it?

Quite why Sullivan expects us to bow and scrape to him because he's only getting 6% interest on his hundred million loan to his own club amazes me.

Every season they seem genetically predisposed to do something that makes me hate them a tiny bit more. This season it was Carvalio and fucking off half the squad leaving us short on wingers while promising it was one out for one in.

Re: Where have we fucooked it?
Even Newcastle had a spell relatively rentals where they challenged for the title and were in the champions league

In the past 35 years we've had one cup final, one short run in Europe under redknapp and been relegated as often as we've reached cup semi finals

It's pretty sad really

Re: Where have we fucooked it?
We are certainly like Newcastle in that we once had a little bit of success a long time ago and think as a result we are more significant performing team than we are.
As a business we are fucking amazing.

Probably more to do with the state of Anderlecht at the moment.

Re: Where have we fucooked it?
We are the Newcastle of the south. Great fan base, good traditions but consistent under performers. 15th biggest club in the world according to some stats but struggling to stay in the top division.

Hapless manager and owners. None of them have a clue what it takes to progress. The players purchased are not part of building anything. Its like buying parts from the best cars ( albeit pre-owned cars) and expecting them all to fit together and win a race.

If you were grading the current owners and manager you would give them all a 'F' and expel the manager for gross incompetence. Yet we continue on with the same formula thinking it will somehow succeed?? Thats the definition of insanity.

All this and they moved us to a rented stadium with promises of better times. Everything is worse except their wealth.
