I C&P a comment made by Johnson 2:58 Sat Oct 21;

“…the heart fell out of the Club, the manager and the players the minute we left (Boleyn Ground, Upton Park).

That final season was so strong and emotionally charged, it was almost the crashing end of a euphoric drug fuelled orgy.

We whacked as much of the stuff up our hooter as we could and it for a change rewarded us that season. Suddenly our dealer had gone and the new shit ain’t as good.

I reiterate, football is not about 11 highly paid robots on the pitch.

It’s about a Club mentality, it’s about the same old faces, it’s about the hundreds of local or otherwise (regardless of ethnicity) members of support and catering staff who made it tick, it’s about taking your feedback at source positive or negative, it’s about them being on top of you (less so lately but despite our internal negative view enough players from oppo have said now they don’t miss it must you divs realise) it’s about the community, it’s about pride.

We don’t have any of that anymore. That affects the team, absolute fact.

West Ham ain’t been that good in my 30 years of supporting them with nigh on 20 home and away. Did I ever doubt the club during that time? Rarely as we had a common cause.

The move to the OS has ripped that apart.

Do not forget the hundreds of stewards, security guards, receptionists, hotel staff, grounds men who were probably all West Ham fans before they joined and if not were after a few years.

Fucking loads of them made redundant, which was the board goal all along.

This is worst ever situation our Club has ever been in.

No heart, no passion, no history, no pride, no loyalty, no soul.

Berks Inc (THE THREE PLANKS, Gold, Sullivan & the Duchess of Knightsbridge) and their supporters did this to us.”

The traumatic move to the London Stadium
April 19, 2018

The London Review of Books is not where one would usually expect to find an article about West Ham United, but Helen Thompson writes about the travails associated with the move to the London Stadium: West Ham
She argues, 'At the heart of West Ham’s woes is the simple fact that the football club is no longer playing at a football stadium. The shape is all wrong, for a start: a rectangular pitch is surrounded by an oval array of seats, most of which are too far from the action to allow the energy and sound of the fans to have much effect on what happens on the pitch.'
She concludes, 'The move to the new stadium has proved so traumatic because every aspect of being a supporter there is a reminder of the transformed nature of the sport, and the football on the pitch has provided no relief.'

Short Cuts
Helen Thompson

In the summer of 2005 London was chosen to host the 2012 Olympics and West Ham United were celebrating their return to the Premier League after a two-season absence. Few around the club at that time would have welcomed the prospect of leaving the Boleyn Ground, where they had played since 1904, for a new stadium in Stratford, and no one in the office of the London mayor, Ken Livingstone, imagined they were constructing an Olympic stadium that a football club could inherit when the games were over. In 2013 the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) and West Ham, under the majority ownership of David Gold and David Sullivan, two businessmen who had made their money from pornography, agreed that the club would acquire a 99-year lease on the Olympic stadium. By then, West Ham had gone too far to retreat – not least in resisting the legal challenge from its London rival Tottenham Hotspur – and in the second round of bidding for the tenancy the LLDC had received no other serious offer.

The relationship has now turned disastrously sour, leaving the LLDC with a stadium losing more than £20 million a year and West Ham in tumult despite the club’s having made a £43 million profit in its first season at Stratford. We know – because their correspondence with the current mayor, Sadiq Khan, on the subject was released after a Freedom of Information request – that Gold and Sullivan, along with West Ham’s vice-chairman, Karren Brady, think the move has in good part been a catastrophe. But West Ham’s top triumvirate has also spent much of the last two seasons trumpeting the success of the move and effectively threatening those season-ticket holders who have complained about the match-day experience, including rudimentary safety concerns, by telling them that fifty thousand people are waiting to take their seats. Many West Ham supporters wonder if the club they love still exists. In the home game against Burnley on 10 March anger and disappointment flared, and a number of fans stormed the pitch while others slung abuse at the directors’ box. The stewards employed by the stadium operator seemed to have no idea what to do. The additional security put in place for the next home game cost taxpayers under the terms of the lease around £60,000.

At the heart of West Ham’s woes is the simple fact that the football club is no longer playing at a football stadium. The shape is all wrong, for a start: a rectangular pitch is surrounded by an oval array of seats, most of which are too far from the action to allow the energy and sound of the fans to have much effect on what happens on the pitch. The stadium was built for athletics, and without thought for the fact that the only viable future it had after the Olympics was as a venue for top-flight football. The massive cost of moving the retractable seating to allow both West Ham and UK Athletics to use the stadium is the reason for most of the financial problems besetting LLDC.

That West Ham is an inconvenient necessity in Stratford could scarcely be more obvious. On match days, stewards frogmarch the fans streaming out of the train stations away from the Westfield shopping centre on a circuitous route to the stadium, purportedly for health and safety reasons. The Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park’s website announces that the job of the London Stadium – as it is now known – is to bring in ‘new events and activities’. Sadiq Khan refused for months to meet Brady to discuss the problems at the stadium, before finally acquiescing to a meeting that lasted only 45 minutes. His priority is a commercial strategy for turning the stadium into ‘a hub for global events and not just football’. The Rolling Stones will play there in May in their first appearance in Britain for five years.

If the club’s results had been better over the past 18 months some of the discontent would probably have remained buried. Most West Ham supporters had reconciled themselves to moving to Stratford (largely because they hated losing at anything to Tottenham) and having done so grasped at a dream, as football fans are wont to do: in a bigger stadium, with increased match-day revenue, good times, they hoped, would finally arrive. As it turned out, the last season at the Boleyn Ground was a successful one and expectations soared. But Sullivan and Gold saw no reason to invest money in a team whose vulnerabilities were still evident. As the squad’s deficiencies became ever more glaring after the move, they looked for cut-price players to patch things over, but in the last transfer window appeared only to weaken the squad. Without a better team, there is only the harsh reality of a stadium that isn’t fit to stage football and owners who, at best, were deceived as to what kind of stadium they had secured, and at worst dissembled when the decision to move could no longer be undone.

West Ham fans tend to think that what happens at their club says something about the state of English football. It’s an illusion born of a summer afternoon 52 years ago when West Ham players provided the four goals and the captaincy that won England the World Cup. But it is not without some truth. Over the past two decades or so English football has changed almost beyond recognition. New stadiums host games in the gaps between conferences. Exorbitantly paid players and managers come and go at dizzying speed, and any number of top clubs have been acquired by foreign owners for whom football barely registers in their business interests. The FA Cup final, once the most sacred event of the season, has become a sideshow. The connection between the old East End and West Ham was diminished long before the fans poured down Green Street for the last time. By the early 2000s many supporters made their way from Essex, Kent and more affluent parts of London rather than from the streets where fans-turned-players like Martin Peters, the future World Cup winner, and Mark Noble, a future club captain, first learned to pass a ball. In 2006, the team conceded an injury-time equaliser in the cup final, three minutes away from winning West Ham’s first silverware in 26 years. A few months after that, the families who had owned the club since it was founded in 1895 by the owner of the Thames Ironworks and Shipbuilding Company sold it to a consortium of Icelandic bankers who promised Champions League football within five years. When the consortium’s business empire collapsed during the financial crisis and the massively expanded wage bill didn’t even yield another cup run, West Ham were lucky to escape administration.

The move to the new stadium has proved so traumatic because every aspect of being a supporter there is a reminder of the transformed nature of the sport, and the football on the pitch has provided no relief. Football, as Arthur Hopcraft wrote in The Football Man (1968), has been built into the British urban psyche, especially, he might have added, in areas like the East End, where the industrial working class lived and worked. It gave communities a proud heritage to be passed from one generation to the next, and sometimes exalted its tribal loyalties beyond sanity. The people who came to watch the game found in its drama an authentic experience that they understood with a fierce exactitude. To anyone who remembers what British football once was, the new Stratford – the Westfield shopping centre and the roads leading to the building sites that line the Olympic park – is not an urban place. It establishes no claim on the memory or imagination and makes no impact on the senses. There is nothing that transcends commercial imperatives. Football in this country cannot be watched in such surroundings and remain football. For West Ham there is no place they can go to play the game most supporters still want to watch. Worse still, there is no illusion that there could be such a place.

Stuart Pearce on what he finds incredible about West Ham United's squad
John Verrall @JohnVerrall 18th April 2018.

West Ham United are set to be active in the summer transfer window if David Moyes remains in charge.

Stuart Pearce has told the Debate, which was broadcast on Sky Sports on 17th April, that he finds it incredible that West Ham United have not been able to leave a senior player in the stands since he arrived.

Pearce has been appointed as David Moyes’ assistant, and he has suggested that if he remains at West Ham for the summer transfer window, then strengthening the squad will be imperative.

Pearce feels that his current options at West Ham are very slim, and that is shown from the fact that every senior player has always had to be included in Moyes’ match-day squad when fit.

“The incredible thing is in the time we’ve been at the club we’ve never left a senior player in the stands, so I think the squad needs growing,” Pearce said, when asked about West Ham's transfer plans for the summer.

It is not yet clear whether Pearce and Moyes will remain in charge at West Ham next term.

There is a weight of feeling against Moyes’ stewardship, even though he looks likely to keep West Ham in the Premier League.

Many Hammers fans feel that the Scottish boss has been too defensive during his time in charge, and want a more pro-active manager in charge next season.

West Ham managed to draw 1-1 with Stoke City in their most recent match, which has pushed them closer to safety.

The Hammers are likely to need just one more victory from their remaining matches, with their next game coming against Arsenal at the weekend.

Mass cull planned, but West Ham would be dumb to sell 28-yr-old reportedly facing summer exit.
WEST HAM CAN’T DITCH
KOUYATE IN THE SUMMER
Date: 19th April 2018 at 2:19pm
Written by: Olivia Leigh

Football.London reported on Thursday that Kouyate was one of seven players potentially set to leave the club in the next transfer window, as his performances hadn’t been good enough this season.

The football news website revealed that even though the defensive midfielder is contracted to the club until 2021, the Hammers may still look to sell him as they could get a decent fee for him.

It is believed that whomever is in charge of the club next season will be handed a huge transfer budget in order to revamp the squad so it does better in the league next season.

Football.London’s report claims it will be a stunning £60million squad overhaul with James Collins, Joe Hart, Reece Oxford, Patrice Evra, Joao Mario, Robert Snodgrass and Kouyate all potential victims of the club’s desire to make room for new faces at the club.

However the idea of selling Kouyate must be instantly ruled out.

While it’s true that the midfield enforcer has woefully stumbled through this season in the 32 appearances he has made across all competitions, it’s too soon to show him the door.

In the 115 appearances he had made for the Hammers ahead this season, Kouyate looked capable of being a regular member of the first-team.

The 28-year-old adds a steely presence in the heart of midfield when at his best, while constantly offloading the ball to his more creative teammates in order to help his side successfully go on the attack.

Kouyate is still capable of being the player he was in previous seasons for the Hammers, and would be a useful member of the squad next season.

If the player was able to improve his displays during the next campaign, there’s no reason to suggest that he wouldn’t be a guaranteed first-team starter at the club one again.

Therefore the Hammers would be foolish to sell Kouyate after one bad season as the talented midfielder is still capable of doing a good job at the London Stadium.

Stuart Pearce shares his worry about West Ham United next season
John Verrall @JohnVerrall 18th April 2018.

West Ham United currently look set to avoid relegation from the Premier League this term.

Stuart Pearce has told the Debate, which was broadcast on Sky Sports on 16th April, that he has one big worry for next season at West Ham United.

West Ham look set to narrowly avoid relegation this term, after drawing their last match with Stoke City to take a big step towards safety.

But Pearce feels that the Hammers need to be concerned about next season already.

With Wolverhampton Wanderers already promoted from the Championship, it appears that the likes of Cardiff City, Fulham or Aston Villa could follow them into the top flight.

And Pearce feels that the three teams that come up could all be well placed to avoid relegation next term.

“I would worry that the three teams that come up will have another impact like these three [the teams promoted last season] and put even more pressure on the established teams. I throw West Ham into that, and Watford.” the Hammers assistant manager admitted.

Huddersfield, Brighton and Newcastle came up last term, and all three clubs look likely to avoid the drop.

West Ham, meanwhile, are now seven points clear of the relegation zone, with just five matches remaining this season.

David Moyes’ side are next in action at the weekend, when they take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

FORGET MOYES: WEST HAM MUST TARGET TROPHY-LADEN MANAGER TO GET SUPPORTERS BACK ON SIDE
Date: 21st April 2018 at 8:15am

Two years and two battles with relegations, West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to grow disheartened after the move to the London Stadium away from their beloved Upton Park seems to have caused more negatives then the positives promised.

Another season to forget with the appointment of David Moyes in November the club have still not guaranteed their safety in the Premier League, finding themselves seven points clear with five games to play. A 1-1 draw with Stoke on Monday night saw heavy criticism coming from fans and pundits alike for seeing Moyes setting up his team in a negative manner, when a win would have all but guaranteed their Premier League status for another season.

Since their seventh-placed finish in their final season at Upton Park issues on and off the pitch have struck the East London club with promises of European football few and far between. A lack of marquee signings and an underwhelming appointment of Moyes have signalled that these lofty ambitions may have been premature.

However, with Moyes contract expiring the end of this season, the Hammers need a solid summer to build a solid structure starting with the appointment of departing PSG boss Unai Emery. After the Ligue 1 outfits struggle in Europe, the former Sevilla boss seems to be on his way out of the Parc des Princes with former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel in the frame to replace him, according to The Daily Mail.

With three consecutive Europa League trophies under his belt at Sevilla and the league and cup double with PSG this term, the Spaniard is no stranger to success and could be the man deliver success to West Ham in their hopes of reaching the Champions League and challenging England’s elite.

'No confidence in the board'

Just after noon, at the end of a two-hour meeting in a cafe-bar close to London Stadium, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association decided upon a course of action.

"We were promised a world-class team in a world-class stadium," said a statement. "Today the members of the WHUISA that were present voted unanimously in a vote of no confidence in the current board of West Ham United to deliver this.

"We will therefore launch a concerted 'UNITED Campaign for Change' and will announce further details shortly.

Brady under fire for Twitter message
Posted by Sean Whetstone on April 17, 2018 in News, Whispers
West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady has come under renewed fire from supporters after an ill-timed tweet last night.
The opening episode of Brady’s latest TV programme called ‘Give It A Year’ began its run on ITV at 8pm – the same time as West Ham’s clash with Stoke got underway with some questioning her priorities between TV and football.
At 7.43pm, a message was posted on her Twitter account, which read: “15 mins until my new show. Give it a Year starts on ITV, hope you watch it and hope you enjoy it!”
In the new 12 part show, she brags how it was her idea to turn a ‘bust football club‘ into a ‘multi-million-pound business‘. She was referring to Birmingham City. Brady saw an advert in a newspaper which led David Sullivan and the Gold brothers to buy an 84% shareholding for £700,000 from administrators in March 1993. Birmingham was later sold Hong Kong businessman Carson Yeung for £81.5m in July 2007.

West Ham chief Karren Brady plugs new TV show as team kicks off vs. Stoke
10:03 AM BST
Chris Wright

Not for the first time, Karren Brady incurred the wrath of West Ham fans with an ill-timed tweet published on Monday evening.

Just 15 minutes before the Hammers were due to kick off their Monday night TV game against Stoke City at the London Stadium, the club's executive vice-chairman forewent any comment on the game to instead remind her followers to watch her new television series, which started at the same time on UK channel ITV.


Lady Karren Brady
✔ @karren_brady
15mins until my new show Give it a Year starts on ITV, hope you watch it and hope you enjoy it!
7:43 PM - Apr 16, 2018

Of course, Brady's tweet was met with a barrage of incredulous replies from West Ham fans, many of whom questioned whether or not she was even aware her club had a game scheduled for that evening.

Along with the club's owners, Davids Gold and Sullivan, Brady is a largely unpopular figure among the Hammers fans due to her tireless work in uprooting the club from their spiritual home at Upton Park in favour of a move across town to the cavernous Olympic bowl.

Such a PR faux-pas is hardly going to help improve her standing.

West Ham's David Moyes makes a comment that silences the media
Antony Martin @antonymmartin84 17th April 2018.

West Ham United drew 1-1 with Stoke City in the Premier League last night.

West Ham boss David Moyes addressed the media in the aftermath of his side's 1-1 draw with Stoke City last night, and suggested that his team's display against the Potters was one of the best that he has seen since taking over as manager in November 2017, as quoted by Football.London.

The Hammers currently sit in 14th spot in the Premier League table, but are now crucially seven points clear of 18th placed Southampton, with just five league games remaining this season.

The job that Moyes has done since taking over as manager of West Ham in November has been admirable, but the club's fans have not been entirely happy with the brand of football that they have witnessed under the Scot.

The 54-year-old spoke to reporters after his side's draw with Stoke, and suggested that his side's display was one of the best that he has seen during his time in east London, as quoted by Football.London:

"I think the important thing was to make sure we didn't lose tonight and I thought the commitment from the players, energy, to make sure that didn't happen showed late on but their play throughout with the ball was one of the better performances I have seen since I have been here."

Following a brief spell of silence from the media, Moyes said:

"Some of you are surprised by that?"

Cue more silence...

Next up for the Hammers is a trip to Arsenal on Sunday, and that should provide them with a fantastic opportunity for three points, considering the fact that Arsene Wenger is clearly prioritising the Europa League now.

“Terrible, terrible manager”: West Ham fans lose patience with David Moyes
Published on April 17, 2018
By Sam Leveridge

Drawing with Stoke City was a disappointing result which brought West Ham firmly back to earth after seeing off Southampton and then drawing at Stamford Bridge, but fans pointed the finger at one man in particular: David Moyes.

The former Everton, Manchester United and Sunderland boss opted to retain the same starting line-up that took a point from Chelsea and used the same 5-4-1 system, deploying Marko Arnautovic as a makeshift centre-forward.

On home turf against second from bottom Stoke City, the conservative set up almost ended in catastrophe as Joe Hart’s calamitous error allowed Peter Crouch to give his side the lead before Andy Carroll’s last gasp equaliser.

Fans did not hide their displeasure on Twitter…

Rescuing a point should not hide the fact David Moyes set up with a 541 against 19th place and the team who has conceded the most this season (at home) and is a terrible, terrible manager. Only ever makes a change when you fall behind instead of going for it.

22:22 - 16 Apr 2018

The Scot’s contract is set to run until the summer with safety still not secured for the Hammers, who have been brought right back into the fight by drawing against the Potters.

It could have been worse for the Irons had David Moyes not looked to his bench, where he first deployed the hero at Chelsea, Javier Hernandez, but even then not until the 77th minute.

Playmaker Manuel Lanzini joined in with only nine minutes left on the clock and Andy Carroll, who proved to be the equaliser, was only given four minutes of normal time plus injury time.

With fixtures coming up against the likes of Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United before the season is out, fans were baffled by the decision to go quite so defensive in a must win game at the London Stadium.

Now, West Ham are seven points from safety with five games left to play but only face opposition against top half sides, with a trip to face Leicester City and Sam Allardyce’s return on the final day of the season with Everton completing the club’s fixture list.

West Ham’s decision to retain David Moyes next season is a mistake
Published on April 19, 2018
By Sam Leveridge

David Moyes is set to remain as West Ham manager, say The Times, as the newspaper has revealed that the Scotsman is in talks to extend his contract beyond the end of the current season.

The ex-Sunderland boss was brought in to the club in November after the dismissal of Slaven Bilic tasked with keeping the Hammers in the Premier League after a woeful start. Five months on, safety is far from secure but looks more likely than not.

Though he is yet to be officially offered a new deal, he is in talks with David Gold and David Sullivan over a long-term deal to secure his future at the London Stadium.

However, the decision to keep Moyes on will not be a popular one with fans. His defensive tactics, questionable signings and lack of substantial improvements on the field have done little to convince.

Coming in to the club with a trashed reputation having taken Sunderland down, Moyes had a point to prove and has done that to some extent by stabilising a club in turmoil off the field with fan protests continuing in the stands and around the ground.

Good results against Southampton and Chelsea were quickly forgotten though as the ex-Everton boss selected a team with five defenders and no natural striker at home in a must win game against second from bottom Stoke City.

His tactical reluctance to attack and stubborn desire to defend first almost harks back to the days of Sam Allardyce, a manager with an acceptable record at the club but who was detested by fans for failing to ‘play the West Ham way’.

His only major signings to date, Jordan Hugill from Preston, who is yet to start, and Patrice Evra on a free transfer, have had next to no impact on the first team and have only fueled criticism of the club’s transfer policy.

The decision appears to do little to aid the club’s owners in their quest to please fans and equally shows a short-term focus on the club’s goals given that many fans remain unconvinced by Moyes.

If he is to stay, Moyes will need backing in the summer in financial terms and that will have to be substantial if it is to entirely convert Moyes’ style in east London to capture the imagination of Irons’ fans.

West Ham fans react to report club has abandoned plan to appoint director of football
by James Beavis
19/4/2018 | 09:28am

According to a report in The Times, West Ham co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan have made a huge U-turn by abandoning plans to appoint a director of football, and Irons fans have been quick to react to the rumour.

The Evening Standard reported last month that the east London outfit would bring in a director of football following criticism from the London Stadium faithful about their recruitment, with Sullivan taking a back seat from transfer negotiations.

However, The Times reports that they have now changed their minds and are ready to give manager David Moyes, who certainly wasn’t popular with fans on Twitter following the 1-1 draw against Stoke City on Monday, full control when it comes to transfers, with the Scot set to sign a permanent contract to stay with the club beyond the end of the season imminently.

West Ham supporters were quick to have their say on the story via social media, and while one predicts there will be “trouble ahead”, another said it was “one more lie to add to all the others”.

Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

Just after noon, at the end of a two-hour meeting in a cafe-bar close to London Stadium, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association decided upon a course of action.

"We were promised a world-class team in a world-class stadium," said a statement. "Today the members of the WHUISA that were present voted unanimously in a vote of no confidence in the current board of West Ham United to deliver this.

"We will therefore launch a concerted 'UNITED Campaign for Change' and will announce further details shortly.

The Irons take on the Potters at the London Stadium this evening with both clubs still unsure of their top-flight status next season.

But Brady stars on the ITV show 'Give It A Year' while the match is being played, and she took to social media to plug the new programme.

Hammers fans weren't impressed, with one tweeting: "I like you Karren, but this a PR nightmare. Did you not think how your already p***ed of fans would react to this?"

West Ham fans DESTROY Karren Brady over Twitter post: ‘Please leave my club immediately!’
KARREN BRADY has angered West Ham fans by promoting her new television show moments before their Premier League clash against Stoke City.
By Alex Harris
PUBLISHED: 20:22, Mon, Apr 16, 2018 | UPDATED: 20:33, Mon, Apr 16, 2018

The opening episode of West Ham vice-chairman Brady’s new programme, Give It A Year, began its run on ITV at 8pm - the same time as the Hammers’ clash with Stoke got underway.

At 7.43pm, a message was posted on her Twitter account, which read: “15 mins until my new show.

“Give it a Year starts on ITV, hope you watch it and hope you enjoy it!”

But West Ham supporters, who have protested against the board, were unimpressed by the tweet.

One fuming fan replied: “Lady Kazza, you should sack whoever runs your woeful social media. Unless of course you have just tweeted whilst in the boardroom of our awful rented arena.”

An irate Iron said: “Seriously?!?! Are you even aware that we've got a game tonight?”

A third wrote: “Most of us will be watching the Hammers love. You know based in Stratford, hoping they can avoid relegation. You on the other hand want us to watch your ridiculous TV programme. Sums up your bleeding loyalty.”

While a seething supporter said: “Meanwhile that football club you are involved with is playing for Premiership survival tonight kick off at 8pm also you silly woman. Please leave my club immediately!”

A win against Stoke would all-but guarantee another season of Premier League football for West Ham.

Stoke are mired in the relegation zone but victory at the London Stadium would give them a fighting chance of dragging themselves to safety.

The Potters are currently six points behind Swansea City, who are currently 17th.

Ian Hyland: West Ham fans splutter over ITV's Give It A Year as Karren Brady reveals she doesn't 'spend thousands on mugs'
She was talking about mugs that you drink from - not mugs that you play in midfield - as she offers advice to entrepreneurs
BY IAN HYLAND
20:36, 16 APR 2018
UPDATED07:55, 17 APR 2018

Any West Ham fans watching ITV’s Give It A Year last night would have been spluttering at this quote from their vice-chairman Karren Brady: “I can’t imagine anyone spending thousands of pounds on mugs.”

OK, so she was talking about mugs that you drink from, not mugs that you play in midfield. Even so, Karren’s no stranger to sanctioning pointless big-money purchases.

Quirky inventor Thomas had spent years, and thousands, solving the problem of tea going cold.

Ignoring solutions such as “drink it while it’s hot”, “stick it in the microwave” or “just make another cup”, he’d invented a technological fix which would set you back £40 for an everyday mug and around £1,000 for the luxury version.

Via the magic of TV Karren first met him a year earlier and went back to see how he was getting on 12 months later.

It’s an enjoyable watch. Karren is much more relaxed and likeable than she is on The Apprentice and it was great to see her encouraging entrepreneurs such as Sarah, who had started her own giant light-up letters hire company.

Karren’s suggested that building a business in the weddings industry could be a real money spinner. Too right, Karren. Just ask Katie Price.

The caterpillar that ate the butterfly

Life long West Ham United fan, football purist, love motorcycles & soaring with the birds, usually to be found with my head in the clouds...sometimes known as RevelatorAlf
POSTED BY: ALF GASPARRO 13/04/2018

As the West Ham faithful look forward to the next match against Stoke City on Monday night, there are many that are beginning to wonder which players will still be at the club come the end of the summer. Yes, as the end of the season draws near, the unmistakable and obligatory rumour mill jumps into overdrive as many within the fandoms and in the media begin circulating news items about possible targets and players that might be up for grabs.

“Now we could do it with conventional weapons, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody’s part!” – ‘Otter’ – National Lampoon’s Animal House

Of course much of this is pure conjecture as until the league status of the club is confirmed, then all parties will be unsure which will be the most appropriate targets for the summer window. Many are fearing that some of the West Ham prized assets will be sold off in order to fund the restructuring of the squad, regardless of whether the team manages to avoid relegation.

Manuel Lanzini is top of the list and depending on his remaining performances for West Ham…and whether he will successfully feature for Argentina in the World Cup in Russia this summer, will largely determine whether other teams will show an interest to retain his services…whether in the Premier League or elsewhere in Europe.

West Ham currently have players on short term contracts or loan arrangements with huge salaries…whether they will be retained remains to be seen but if an overhaul is required, then a mass clearcut is certainly needed too! There has to be a shedding of the expensive players and those who are on the fringe…it simply makes a better business case to oust them out of the club. Other players will likely choose to leave…such as Hernandez, who hasn’t been able to find regular first team football at the Hammers this season, maybe followed by the likes of Carroll and Collins who may be deemed surplus to requirements.

The goal of the club now must be to create a squad that is balanced in both youth and experience as well as having depth in each position. Of course this is the stuff of legend, but this has been one of the reasons the Hammers have failed to impress over the last two seasons. The squad has not been able to develop properly because of poor transfer deals and underperforming players…the goal of higher performances was undermined in its restructuring infancy on leaving Upton Park.

There are two main hurdles that will prevent a successful transition this summer; money and management! How much ‘new’ money will be made available and who will be the manager? The transfer budget will be key here, as most fans will expect a sizeable treasure chest but many fear it will be once again vastly underfunded. The choice of manager will be key in determining which transfer targets will be chased in the summer and if needed, come next January too.

Whilst fans are in agreement that many new players are needed to bolster the squad, there are conflicting opinions as to which positions take priority! Do the Hammers need to strengthen in defence? Yes! Do they need a holding midfielder? Yes! Do they need to build a spine to the team? Yes!

The problem for any new manager, or even for Moyes, come the summer is that there have been so many deficiencies in all positions that the restructuring task is a mammoth one. However, the injury problems that the squad has faced this season and the last needs to be analysed more closely. Whilst the medical teams have worked wonders with some players to bring them back to match fitness quickly, there have been other players who have struggled all season. Some were possibly called back to the first team before they were even fully fit because of necessity…such as many believe was the case for Antonio all season, who has looked a shadow of his former self but is carrying a lot more weight too.

The malaise around the club has to be put to one side for now and during the rest of this season, as the priority will be to get a squad and first team that is firing on all cylinders and is singing the same tune. Whether in the starting eleven, on the substitutes’ bench or…as a squad or youth player, each and everyone must become part of a whole, must become an entity that is bigger than themselves.

This can only be achieved when the club address the major issues and start again with the training facilities and methods as well as the playing and coaching staff. It’s back to the drawing board, shed the players that are not the long-term solutions, retain the very best and bring in a new crop of seasoned professionals that will fit into the new paradigm.

Whether West Ham will lunge with purpose on big summer signings is yet to be seen, however, there are many players that will be available as teams get relegated from the Premier League this season…West Ham must exploit the fire sales from those unfortunate predicaments and find the players that may function better under a new regime and battle beneath new colours.

Whatever the solution, these are testing times ahead for the club, the management and of course the fans. There must be a clear focus on the future task, regardless of performances and results between now and the end of the season. The squad cannot fall on its sword before it has had a chance to mature…it must have all the right components to make it thrive and ready to enter conflict again next season…the young caterpillar must not be allowed to eat the butterfly it may try to become.

West Ham fans react to Andy Carroll's return to fitness
Adefunmiloye Alani @adefunmiloye 13 hours ago

Andy Carroll has started just seven Premier League games for West Ham United this season.

West Ham United have been handed a major injury boost ahead of Monday's game against Stoke City, with injured striker Andy Carroll potentially fit for the clash according to the club's official website.

The 29-year-old has been out of action since the 4th of January after suffering a hairline fracture to his foot following the 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur, subsequently missing all 10 Premier League games played since.

Carroll has only played 12 league games this season, scoring twice, and it's safe to say West Ham have fared well in his absence.

A groin injury he picked up last April hindered the striker from beginning the campaign with the Hammers, with his first league appearance not coming until mid-October - seven games into the campaign.

The injury-prone Carroll was a subject of a January transfer inquest from Chelsea, and his future at east London doesn't seem certain considering that he is slowly becoming surplus to requirements.

West Ham fans aren't particularly over the moon with the news of the player's return, given that he has been injured 11 times since arriving the club from Liverpool in 2012, and their reactions on Twitter say it all.

£50 million and counting... the staggering amount crock striker Andy Carroll has cost West Ham so far
Damien Lucas @damienlucas 15th April 2018.

Andy Carroll is expected to return to the West Ham United squad for the game against Stoke City on Monday night.

Andy Carroll is fast becoming a forgotten man at West Ham and indeed in the Premier League.

Injury-prone Carroll has played just 14 games for West Ham this season, scoring only two goals - albeit two very important goals in a win over West Bromwich Albion.

The big Geordie has played only 124 matches for the Hammers in six seasons and netted just 32 goals in that time.

West Ham co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold have been criticised by supporters over a lack of spending, particularly after promises to sign a marquee striker on moving to the London Stadium failed to materialise.

But is it any wonder after having their fingers so badly burned with the signing of Carroll, a deal which has cost the club a staggering £50 million and counting.

With a wage of £90,000 per week - as widely reported by the likes of The Mirror, Carroll has cost the Hammers £48 million so far based on his salary, initial loan fee from Liverpool and his eventual £18 million permanent fee - a then club record.

And that figure will undoubtedly pushed over £50 million when goal bonuses and other such clauses are taken into account.

The eye-watering amount means Carroll has cost the Hammers £1.5 million per goal since joining the East Londoners.

While nobody doubts Carroll's quality and commitment when he takes to the field fully fit, question marks over his commitment off the pitch and his injury record are a huge source of frustration for the club and its fans.

When he is fit and firing there are not many better all-round forwards in the Premier League. But that is half the problem, he very rarely is.

West Ham simply cannot rely on injury-prone striker former England man anymore and have wasted years trying to build teams to get the best out of his attributes.

David Sullivan has previously admitted he would never have signed Carroll had he known how the move would pan out while supporters feel the club should have known what they were getting themselves into by signing the striker given his injury record prior to joining the club on a deal which runs until 2019.

Carroll has become little more than an expensive bonus for West Ham.

The Baroness of Knightsbridge running of West Ham London is causing ‘ripples’ internationally…

'Chaos club' - What the Swedish media make of West Ham's interest in Leeds star Pontus Jansson
Reports suggest the Hammers are interested in Pontus Jansson
By Rob Guest,
14:11, 15 APR 2018

West Ham are believed to be keen on signing Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson this summer.

The Swedish international impressed in his first season at Elland Road following his loan spell from Torino, yet he has not been able to reach the same heights this term for the Whites.

According to the Guardian, the Hammers are looking at strengthening their defence by bringing the 27-year-old to east London ahead of next season.

With David Moyes looking likely to still be at the London Stadium next campaign, the Scotsman will be aiming to add to his defence with the Hammers losing Jose Fonte to China in February.

The ex-Everton manager was at Craven Cottage recently to watch Leeds in action against Fulham, although many believed he was there to cast an eye on three of the home side's players.

Ryan Fredericks, Tom Cairney and Aleksandar Mitrovic have all been linked with a move to West Ham, with Cairney even spotted watching the Hammers' 1-1 draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

However, Moyes may have actually been in west London to keep tabs on Jansson in Fulham's 2-0 win last Tuesday night.

While Leeds will not want to part ways with their defender, one report back in Sweden suggest that Jansson would be very interested in a move to the Premier League if it was offered to him.

However another publication, Expressen, are more sceptical about the defender moving to West Ham this summer, labelling the Hammers a ‘chaos club’.

WHUISA work with FSF to overturn "indefinite" stadium ban
April 12, 2018/

Life long Hammers fan Robert Runciman was horrified to receive a letter from the club informing him that he was banned indefinitely from the London Stadium after he'd been identified throwing objects at the Burnley game. The letter was conclusive and offered no opportunity to appeal. Notwithstanding that, Robert contacted the club, told them that he had contacted WHUISA and was told the issue would be looked into.

STAN COLLYMORE: 'HIGH-PRESS? MOYES IS A HIGH PRIEST OF TEDIUM'
By Dan Coker 13 Apr 2018 at 08:00

Stan Collymore suggests David Moyes’ stock has fallen, that he is not the man to bring high-pressing, high-octane football to West Ham and that the Scot is struggling to win over fans as West Ham face a battle to find consistency in their Premier League performances

The infrastructure is all in place at West Ham. They have a modern stadium with good facilities, a fan base which wants to buy into what they do, and a decent squad as well. If you cherry-picked at least four of their players, maybe even six or seven, you’d have the nucleus of a side well capable of looking at the top half of the table rather than the bottom next season.

So the major question for me now is whether or not David Moyes is the man to lead them again next season.

And, if so, can he, along with co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, turn the Hammers into the sort of club West Brom and Stoke had become before this season?

The sort of club which consistently finishes ninth, 10th, 11th or 12th over four or five seasons. A lot of Moyes’ admirers will say that’s exactly where he will be pitching them but I still don’t know if I’d keep him on. Fans want high-pressing, high-octane football these days because they see it from the top sides every week on Match Of The Day and when that ¬happens it quickly becomes a trend.

The knock-on effect when styles change is that, all of a sudden, people like Tony Pulis, Sam Allardyce and Alan Pardew can begin to look like football dinosaurs.

And at the moment I’m not ¬convinced people see Moyes in a ¬different light. Is he a really good organisational manager who can put out teams which create chances and score goals?

Or is he a grind-it-out merchant, a manager who guarantees fans 19 home games of little entertainment? At times at Everton he suggested he was the former but since then his stock has fallen. That’s something Sullivan and Gold have to seriously take into consideration. They are rather conservative, that pair – ¬remember the way they stuck with Allardyce – and I’m ¬sure they will be thinking, ‘We need ¬stability here’.

They realise there is a lot of money to be lost and they like money, they like being in the Premier League, they like to wear the fur jackets.

Their history ¬suggests that, unless there is a candidate who springs out of ¬nowhere, who is young, aggressive and passionate, who can get West Ham fans behind them, and who has a proven track record of ¬signing quality ¬players, they will stick with what they know. And that will mean a thumbs-up for Moyes.

The problem for West Ham is that the teams coming up from the ¬Championship this season will all have a lot of dough, and not just Premier League dough, either.

Wolves and Cardiff have seriously wealthy backers, as have some of the clubs aiming for the play-offs, and all will be further competition for the Hammers.

That level of competition could ¬ultimately be West Ham’s downfall. The arrival of three teams with huge financial clout could push them closer to the Premier League trapdoor in the next couple of seasons. I’m sure Sullivan and Gold will take all that into consideration. What I would like to see from them at the end of this season – this is ¬assuming they stay up, which I’m ¬certain they will – is a statement of intent, a clear signal of their hopes for the future. That would provide transparency for supporters, something that’s been missing, and it would be good for the fans to realise what the club’s ambitions are.

They also need to address the ¬stadium and get the crowd closer to the pitch, even if it means spending a few million quid to get it right.

On the pitch, survival will all boil down to their remaining six fixtures and, if I were at the training ground, I’d be banging the drum about the home games. They have four of them – the mantra will be, ‘Win the home games and try to nick points away if you can’. And if West Ham get it right, as they did against Southampton in their last home match, they’ll be safe sooner rather than later.

'What might have been' - West Ham fans fume as Payet inspires Marseille in the Europa League
The Ligue 1 side had to overturn an aggregate deficit against RB Leipzig to progress
BY FOOTBALL.LONDON REPORTER 07:18, 13 APR 2018

Dimitri Payet was the match winner for Marseille as the French side stunned RB Leipzig to reach the Europa League semi-finals.

The former West Ham playmaker scored a stunning individual goal on the hour to make it 4-2 on the night before Hiroki Sakai scored in stoppage time to complete the hosts' 5-3 aggregate win.

Leipzig had come into the tie with a slender lead courtesy of a 1-0 win the first leg, and they looked certain to progress after Portuguese winger Bruma opened the scoring early on.

But Marseille came roaring back with Konstantinos Mitroglou bringing his side level on the night, 2-1 behind on aggregate.

Payet was the orchestrator for the second goal, with a lovely pass for Morgan Sanson, who fired straight at Peter Gulacsi only for Bouna Sarr to smash in the rebound.

Former West Ham star Payet then provided a trademark inch-perfect free-kick for Florian Thauvin to flick Marseille 3-1 up on the evening, 4-3 overall.

The former Upton Park favourite completed his night's work with a goal reminiscent of the one he scored against Middlesbrough at London Stadium last season before he departed for Marseille.

Jinking into the area, he bamboozled the Leipzig defenders with a step-over, before curling a top-corner finish with the outside of his foot.

Here's what his former adoring fans made of his performance.

'One last pay day'; West Ham fans react to Shinji Kagawa links
Danny Owen @danny8195 12th April 2018.

West Ham United fans would certainly have more than enough reason to be wary of links to Borussia Dortmund playmaker Shinji Kagawa, as reported by Footballeck.

After all, the Japanese star did not really stand out during two years at Manchester United, with his £17 million transfer fee resulting in little more than a hat-trick against Norwich City.

And it is worth remembering that the second of Kagawa’s seasons at Old Trafford was spent under the stewardship of David Moyes, the current West Ham manager. Kagawa was handed just 14 Premier League starts in the 2013/14, failing to score a goal and producing just three assists.

His age, too, is perhaps another concern. Kagawa is 29 years of age now and West Ham’s board has been criticised by fans in recent transfer windows for signing players whose best years seem to be behind them, see Joe Hart, Javier Hernandez, Pablo Zabaleta and Alvaro Arbeloa.

Kagawa, who inspired Borussia Dortmund to the Bundesliga and DFB Pokal double in 2012 but has not made the same impact in his second spell at the club, would certainly fall into a similar category.

So now wonder some supporters are unconvinced – even if an £11.5 million transfer fee could be seen as a real bargain in today’s market.

By Simon Stone BBC Sport 31 Mar 2018.
Just after noon, at the end of a two-hour meeting in a cafe-bar close to London Stadium, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association decided upon a course of action.

"We were promised a world-class team in a world-class stadium," said a statement. "Today the members of the WHUISA that were present voted unanimously in a vote of no confidence in the current board of West Ham United to deliver this.

"We will therefore launch a concerted 'UNITED Campaign for Change' and will announce further details shortly.

The West Ham fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments made by Joe Hart on Sky Sports after the Hammers earned a very credible 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. The fans now are worried that Hart has been getting slightly ahead of himself, the England keeper claimed that West Ham are a “really dangerous team” with Maro Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez leading the line.

7:30 AM - Apr 11, 2018

West Ham’s draw at Chelsea was a huge step for the club as they look to keep their Premier League status intact for another year. David Moyes’ side came out of the international break with a point to prove having lost three consecutive games by a three-goal margin against Liverpool, Swansea and Burnley. The Hammers came out of the blocks firing though, dispatching Mark Hughes’ Southampton 3-0 at The London Stadium before coming from behind through Javier Hernandez at Chelsea.

The club are now six points clear of the relegation zone with just six games left to play and look destined to survive for another year in England’s top-flight. The Irons’ total of 34 points isn’t enough to keep them up at the moment, although with only two wins needed in their last six outings to reach the Premier League’s magic 40-point mark, David Moyes can start to look ahead to next season. The London Stadium faithful will need to bring in reinforcements in the summer if they’re to avoid the close call they’ve had this season, but the fans will take any form of survival at this stage.

'Lies, Lies, Lies': Behind the troubles at West Ham United
An insight into the reasons for the protests by West Ham fans at the London Stadium on the 10th March.
Alex James Bartlett
CONTRIBUTOR

On Saturday, 10th March, a 66th minute strike from Ashley Barnes put Burnley ahead against a West Ham United side who had suffered back to back 4-1 away defeats. The already tense atmosphere inside the London Stadium quickly became toxic.

In the wake of this, several fans invaded the pitch and hundreds gathered outside the owner’s box to make their feelings known. Two further Burnley goals would only add to the carnage, and by 80 minutes, chants of ‘We’re not West Ham anymore’ rang around a then half empty stadium. The move which promised to thrust West Ham into the spotlight has been a disaster from day one. But what exactly is the reasoning behind the protests?

Go back a little less than two years and the state of the club was very different. The club had just said farewell to their beloved home of over a century, Upton Park, with a dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Manchester United. West Ham would finish 7th that season, just four points off the Champions League places.

Fans can't be blamed entirely for the atmosphere
It is easy to look at the events of last month and blame the West Ham fans involved in the incidents at the London Stadium. In fact, I’ve heard many saying ‘Same old West Ham’ and ‘Who do West Ham fans think they are? Well if truth be told I don’t think West Ham fans know who they are right now.

Their identity has been taken away, and the results promised have not come with it. The next level was something Gold, Brady and Sullivan repeated so many times when the move was in progress. It was meant to elevate West Ham to the Champions League, but it has had the opposite effect and they are now starring down the barrel of Championship football in a 56,000 seat stadium.

Ask any West Ham fan and they will tell you they are not a successful club. They haven’t won a major trophy since 1980. In the Premier League era, there have been two relegations and only twice have they finished inside the top 7. So, why is there so much discontent now? It is the broken promises of the board that have led to the anger.

The first year at the London Stadium generated £41 million profit for the board. Estimations have valued the club at about £300-400 million in terms of profit. But, why in two years and four transfer windows has there been a net spend of £29 million? This is the question West Ham fans want answered. At the moment in their eyes it is being run as business as opposed to a football club.

So maybe the protests are needed. There will never be justification for fans running on the pitch during a game but the events of last month have certainly made a point. The future of ownership of the club may be out of their hands but one thing the fans must do is be United says in the clubs name and nature.

Could West Ham be heading down the same path of similar sized clubs such as Blackpool, Portsmouth and Sunderland? Could it perhaps be even worse? It is certainly not pretty in the east end of London and until David Sullivan puts his money where his mouth is, it is hard to see an imminent change in fortunes.

The sun always shines on TV…but it’s hotter in the stadium
Posted By: Alf Gasparro 12/04/2018

For over two years the club has placed the fans in second place behind their high profile leadership…and whilst the club may stay in the Premier League…there is little to mould that approach, however, fans will vote with their feet and more protests are likely to deter fans from attending or even purchasing tickets for future seasons or individual matches.
There are many examples of where owners of football clubs have alienated the fanbase or have caused a disapproving atmosphere within the stadia which has led to attendances falling, and this may take years to recover from…if at all. West Ham have followed this path and have been impotent to address the issues and more so to bring themselves back into favour with the fanbase…the situation can only get worse for both club and fans if an answer is not found soon. The sun may always shine when the game is on TV, but it’s always hotter in the stadium…and would be an unyielding draw…if only the club weren’t so cold!

'No confidence in the board'
By Simon Stone BBC Sport 31 Mar 2018.
Just after noon, at the end of a two-hour meeting in a cafe-bar close to London Stadium, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association decided upon a course of action.

"We were promised a world-class team in a world-class stadium," said a statement. "Today the members of the WHUISA that were present voted unanimously in a vote of no confidence in the current board of West Ham United to deliver this.

"We will therefore launch a concerted 'UNITED Campaign for Change' and will announce further details shortly.

West Ham fans sing anti-board songs and carry banners as they march to London Stadium in protest... while stewards inside wear safety goggles
Hundreds of West Ham fans protested against the board outside the London Stadium ahead of their clash with Southampton. The supporters, angry at the way the club is being run, congregated outside Stratford station before making their way to the ground. Once there the supporters, many of whom were carrying banners, marched around the stadium singing anti-board songs. Security inside the ground has been beefed up after trouble flared at the last home match against Burnley on March 10. A security barrier has been erected close to the directors' box, where joint-owner David Sullivan was struck by a coin at the Burnley game. Sullivan will be in the directors' box for the Saints game, but in a seat a few rows back from his usual one.

Comment from other Clubs about the London Athletics Ground;


The London Stadium fiasco and the upstart bubble
Post by Paatiericer Tue Dec 05, 2017 6:28 pm

Regarding West Ham forever blowing bubbles, just how much of a bubble have they blown with regard to the rise and rise of West Ham in London, with respect to the other clubs and the various London boroughs and their taxpayers out of pocket regarding the London Stadium fiasco?

Why have Newham Council been given £750 million football money from the 32 other borough's taxpayers, to try and lift what is a localized club beyond their general fair-to-middling place among the football clubs of the UK (not one league title to boast of or even a second place in the top division.)

One wonders how this story might have panned out in Madrid, if Rayo Vallecano had been on a similar rise with intent to become a supreme football 'super power,' or Salgueiros in Porto from their Paranhos base, or even Partick Thistle in Glasgow.

I wonder how much Spurs are paying to rent Wembley per season and how this compares to West Ham's rent of the London Stadium, perhaps as a guideline, now that the Mayor of London has taken control of the London Stadium until further notice.

If there is to be a rise and rise of a localized London club, then the West End boys of Brentford look better placed than the East End boys of West Ham. After all, they have their own airport regarding their geographical closeness to Heathrow and the chance to hire a 90,000 seat stadium with no apparent history regarding legitimacy of construction and sport-use remit.

It didn't work for Queens Park Rangers at White City nor Queens Park at Hampden, never mind the ill-fated Thames F.C. and their reported 100,000 capacity dog's stadium.

If the London Stadium issue were to unravel further, regarding the various London borough taxpayers and any future legal challenges, then West Ham might find they are without any kind of future, having dispensed with their local base and the Boleyn ground, in fact stuffed forever and back to being what they were before the 60's.

Instead of building fake sand castles behind the new-build super stand, they had enough land to build half-of Wembley anyway (almost.) Regarding other potential expansions of the Boleyn ground, the nearby housing was only constructed in the 60's so there was ample opportunity for development along the lines of Anfield and it wouldn't have been such a big deal to re-think the tube station congestion problem in relation to safety and crowd management.

The fact that they didn't makes one wonder just what kind of club it really is, regarding their fan base and their pretty sand castle construction fantasies.

Certainly not much compared to the Gunners and their massive history and international standing among the world's elite.

Reiver, Nov 6, 2017

West Ham will be begging Millwall for the rights to use their song, "No one likes us, we don't care".

The affection many people had seems to be fading ....... the whole club just seems so shallow & tacky these days.

The stadium fiasco as well the terrible view as an away supporter, the ambushes after games, the stupid bubble machine, the skanky owners have all put a different complexion on the club. It's been made worse by the thousands walking out of games and the booing of a manager they wanted for years. That's the trouble when your tickets are bought up by touts and flogged off to bemused Japanese tourists who probably think the 'London Stadium' must house a top team. The fact that it's a nightmare to get to and away from doesn't help either

The decent West Ham supporters must dearly wish they were back at Upton Park where everything felt right and the atmosphere entirely different.

And now Moyes

WEST HAM ACE READY TO QUIT AFTER FRUSTRATING SEASON
Date: 11th April 2018 at 5:54am
Written by: Josh Challies

West Ham could be set to suffer a huge blow in the transfer market at the end of the season, as they could lose a key attacker.

The Daily Mirror states Mexico international Javier Hernandez remains open to offers taking him away from the London Stadium after struggling to earn consistent starts for the club this year.

An upturn in form has seen Hernandez hit four goals in his last eight Premier League appearances, including the equaliser off the bench in Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea, but he’s looking to complete 90 minutes regularly and will seek an exit if those chances don’t present themselves.

Signed from Bayer Leverkusen last summer for a fee reported to be worth £16m, the former Manchester United striker has started just 16 games for West Ham this season and has recently found himself benched, with Marko Arnautovic playing centrally.

His eight-goal haul puts him second in West Ham’s scoring charts behind the Austria ace, who leads the way with nine strikes.

West Ham fans blast Kouyate on social media
by Matt Law
11/4/2018 | 07:

Declan Rice and Joe Hart (although criticised as well) were amongst the West Ham United players to be praised by the fans following Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Chelsea.

The Hammers followed their huge home victory over Southampton last weekend by picking up an extremely welcome point away to the Premier League champions on Sunday afternoon.

Rice and Hart were both excellent for the visitors, whilst Javier Hernandez was widely praised after coming off the bench to net the West Ham equaliser.

Not all of the club’s players have received kind words on social media, however, with Cheikhou Kouyate taking a lot of criticism for his performance.
The 28-year-old has scored twice and provided three assists in 27 Premier League appearances this season, which is not a bad record for a central midfielder, but his form over the last few months has been very inconsistent indeed.

A selection of the Twitter reaction in relation to the midfielder, who is valued at £10.8m by transfermarkt.co.uk, can be seen below:

One good game does not make a great keeper
Resident Joe Hart hater splashes cool water on England No. 1
By Jackson Schmidtke Apr 10, 2018, 3:30am EDT

West Ham United came away from their match with Chelsea with a vital point in the Hammers survival struggle.

A number of Hammers put in excellent performances against the Premier League giants, and one man stood above the rest for his Man of the Match performance, Joe Hart.

Yes, the England No. 1 made a few good saves but before we give him the England No. 1 shirt and cry to have his loan made permanent, let’s remember, Joe Hart is a horrible signing for West Ham and his one good game this season doesn’t mean he’s a great keeper.

Adrian and Joe Hart are almost the exact same player. Both can make absolutely fantastic saves and can commit completely boneheaded errors, sometimes in the same game.

The Chelsea game is a prime example.

Joe Hart... what're you doing
5:14 PM - Apr 8, 2018

Joe looks like me when I played intramural indoor soccer. Slow to react and refuses to even make an effort to go to ground to make the save. There is no excuse for Joe not making a play at the ball. Sure, it deflected and he was heading the other way initially but he still could make that save. The ball was travelling at like .02 MPH.

Contrast that with his late save on a late header by Oliver Giroud. It was an excellent save don’t get me wrong, but his positioning could have been better and it would have been less theatrical.

He made a few other good saves in the game but if you’re being honest with yourself you know that Adrian could make those saves as well.

Looking a bit deeper into this season’s statistics it becomes clear that Joe Hart is no longer a top tier Premier League or International keeper the way Thibaut Courtois, Hugo Lloris, or David De Gea are.

https://bracethehammer.sbnation.com/2018/4/10/17215830/one-good-game-does-not-make-a-great-keeper

They’ve played basically the same number of games but their stats couldn’t be more different. Joe has let in an appalling 34 goals compared to Adrian’s 24.

Adrian has made 11 more saves and crucially hasn’t committed any errors that lead to goals.

Perhaps the biggest reason Joe Hart is a horrible signing is his salary.

Joe Hart is making 116,000 a week. Adrian is making 50,000 a week. For the production I’ll take Adrian everyday of the week and twice on Sundays.

Sure, West Ham’s defense has been horrible for most of the season. Both Adrian and Hart have played with those bad defenses but Hart has been a sieve compared to Adrian. Throw the salary into the mix and BAM! I TOLD YOU SO!

Brady slams Chelsea transfer policy
Posted by Sean Whetstone on April 8, 2018 in News, Whispers

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has taken a pop at Chelsea’s transfer policy.

Brady has slammed Chelsea for letting go Mohamed Salah, Kevin de Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku.

“Name three of the outstanding half-dozen players in the league and surely Mo Salah, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku would be among them,” Brady wrote for her Sun column.

“Each of them was tried and inaccurately tested as promising professionals by Chelsea. Sold for a combined total of £58million, currently the lot would be worth around £400m at today’s ludicrous prices.It seems to me Chelsea’s system of signing the best talent and lending it out to all points of the compass is bound by its very voraciousness to have serious weaknesses.To fail to recognise one future great is unfortunate, to do so three times is shocking and has weakened Roman Abramovich’s club by default. With that trio in Conte’s side, he or any half-decent manager would be embracing glory rather than fifth place in the league.”

clubhammer April 8, 2018 at 9:15 pm

Dave April 8, 2018 at 3:13 pm
At least they have the scouting system to sign them in the first place, look at our shambles.
The other laughable thing is it’s like we haven’t ever sold anyone, our club sells every single player who has any sign of looking half decent.
Another piece of Brady rubbish which will make Chelsea say we won’t deal with her if we try to sign anyone.
Surprising Sullivan hasn’t said they are all injury prone or too old anyway.

westhammer April 8, 2018 at 12:14 pm

kevin April 8, 2018 at 1:48 pm
Yeh , dead right , westhammer . In fact a bit of a silly thing to write ahead of this game away to Chelsea . Given their history with Ray Wilkins ( RIP respected player ) and what that will bring to the bridge come the game . She really needs to look at West Ham’s history of selling players . If she doesn’t know how to write constructively she should stop.

As mentioned by others look at our record the last two seasons, Arnautovic aside we have been lacking in genuine quality investment, Jaoa Mario looks quality to me anyway but he is a loan, we need to be spending £30m plus on players, in defence and probably in goal.aswell as a genuine defensive midfielder.

Time for London Mayor to stop playing games
Posted by Sean Whetstone on April 9, 2018 in Blogs, Sean's Blogs, Whispers
Sadiq Khan is playing political games with West Ham United which has no place in football or any other sport.
Our club and game is part of the leisure industry with the aim of bringing people together – by it’s nature politics DIVIDES..
You may remember that following his broadside against West Ham fans following the Burnley match he followed up by making a series of comments that included the incredible and still unsubstantiated claims that over 150 offences were committed.
We have been told that to date the police have still to charge anybody with anything despite his claims!
As a result ClaretandHugh sent 10 questions aimed at helping the situation. Today – 11 DAYS LATER – through a spokesman he responded with a statement answering none of them.
Instead he pointed out the failings of his predecessor Boris Johnson and his team who he claims ‘has tied the taxpayer into lengthy and legally binding contracts with West Ham United, UK Athletics and stadium operators LS185’

And Tory supporter Sean speaks eh!

Boris the clown is the one who needs to be pulled in not because he is a perpetual liar about most things from millions a week saved for nhs as if a Tory cares about our nhs anyway, but letting this board of his friends get away with millions of tax payers money spent on a stadium that wasn’t meant for much else than the winning of the Olympics coming to London, certainly not football.

Having made the best out of a bad dea,l our board of money grabbing torys, once again saw the opportunity to fill their sky rocket to the brim not letting the sensible idea of moving and building a football stadium that our supporters would want which of course would mean a sixty thousand stadia that costs a fortune to put up just like spurs and arsenal and soon Chelsea will do.

Hell even Tony fernandes is building a new one for QPR. So with housing replacing our Boleyn ground sold and a freebie on the OS it’s a great life for our three lovable billionaires. Only the script as our supporters are not stupid other than seans support see through this little business deal and show up to cause a huge problem.

Answer is simple sell up in summer and get out of our club forever.

Keep lòoking into this lots finances Mr Khan and maybe your find some worms coming out.

Oh and please support a London club not a northern one like Liverpool unless you want to be mayor somewhere else.

West Ham's Andy Carroll message backfires spectacularly as fans turn on injury-prone striker
Damien Lucas
@damienlucas
10th April 2018.

Andy Carroll is fast becoming a forgotten man at West Ham United and indeed the Premier League.

Injury-prone Carroll has played just 14 games for West Ham this season, scoring only two goals - albeit two very important goals in a win over West Bromwich Albion.

The big Geordie has played only 124 matches for the Hammers in six seasons and netting just 32 goals in that time.

While nobody doubts Carroll's quality and commitment when he takes to the field fully fit, question marks over his commitment off the pitch and his injury record are a huge source of frustration for the club and its fans.

West Ham simply cannot rely on injury-prone striker former England man anymore and have wasted years trying to build teams to get the best out of his attributes.

Carroll has become little more than an expensive bonus for West Ham.

When he is fit and firing there are not many better all-round forwards in the Premier League. But that is half the problem, he very rarely is.

And his former teammate Craig Bellamy gave a fascinating insight to Sky Sports The Debate which suggests he is not making the most of his career and talent, as reported previously by HITC.com here.

It now appears fans' patience with Carroll is finally running out if reactions to a well-intentioned post on Twitter by the club's media team are anything to go by.

The Hammers posted a video of the striker scoring a memorable hat-trick against Arsenal saying: "Andy Carroll at his absolute best two years ago today."

The reaction was very revealing with many fans calling for the striker to be sold this summer so both parties can move on from what has been a very costly experience for the Hammers.

West Ham fans react to Cheikhou Kouyate's display against Chelsea
Jordan Harris
@JordanHarris811
9th April 2018.

West Ham United picked up a hugely impressive point at Stamford Bridge, but not all of their players impressed.

It may have been another afternoon that saw West Ham's survival hopes boosted, but not every player managed to impress the Irons supporters on Twitter with their displays in the 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Sunday.

David Moyes' men took a giant step towards staying in the Premier League last weekend after they thrashed Southampton at the London Stadium to put some daylight between themselves and the bottom three. And while they did not manage to follow that game up with a win at Stamford Bridge, the Hammers will surely be delighted with the point that saw them extend the gap between themselves and the Saints even further.

It was a tough afternoon for Moyes' side. Chelsea applied most of the pressure throughout the contest and Marko Arnautovic spent much of the game cutting a lonely figure up front. But Javier Hernandez equalised late on to ensure that it finished level.

It was a tremendous rearguard performance from West Ham with a number of their defensive players doing extremely well to frustrate Chelsea and often limit the home side to efforts from around the edge the box. And when they did break through, Joe Hart was normally able to produce a fantastic stop.

But while many of the players will expect the plaudits to be coming their way, it appears that a large section of the fans were not impressed by Cheikhou Kouyate's display against the Blues.

Some supporters actually thought the midfielder did really well, but the majority seem to have been left disappointed with his efforts in the middle of the park, with some suggesting that he needs to be dropped or even sold after losing the battle.

Here is what some of the West Ham fans made of Kouyate's display...

Hart in, Hernandez out: West Ham fans rage at Moyes’ team selection
‘Waste of space’ – West Ham fans rage at Moyes ahead of Chelsea clash
by Sam Preston @SamJPreston
8/4/2018 | 03:58pm

David Moyes may view West Ham’s trip to face Stamford Bridge in Sunday’s London derby as something of a free hit.

There was much more pressure on the Hammers last weekend, their biggest game of the season as they hosted relegation rivals Southampton.

Moyes’ men flew out of the blocks, establishing a 3-0 lead by half-time and making a mockery of the pressure that had been bubbling up for three week break since their last match, the home defeat to Burnley by the same scoreline.

That alleviated some of the relegation tension that had engulfed the club and should allow the Irons to make the trip from West to East London with designs on exploiting any lack of confidence in the Chelsea ranks following their 3-1 home defeat at the hands of Tottenham last time out.

Joe Hart got the nod but Javier Hernandez was not so fortunate and we’ve taken a closer look at the best of the West Ham fans’ reaction…

West Ham fans react to reports linking David Moyes with new contract
‘Madness’, ‘no ambition’: West Ham fans react to contract reports
Jordan Harris
@JordanHarris811
5th April 2018

West Ham United reportedly plan to offer David Moyes a new long-term contract after their Premier League survival hopes were boosted.

West Ham fans have been reacting on Twitter to the reports that recently emerged from the Daily Mirror that suggested that the Hammers board were planning to hand David Moyes a new long-term deal at the London Stadium.

Moyes has endured an eventful spell in charge of the Irons since signing a deal until the end of the season in the wake of Slaven Bilic's departure.

The low point undoubtedly came just before the international break in the home clash with Burnley, but three weeks later and the situation looks significantly brighter after they thrashed relegation rivals Southampton.

The victory moved the Hammers five points clear of the bottom three and they boast a game in hand over several of the sides below them in the table so can arguably feel fairly confident that they should have enough to avoid getting sucked back into the battle to beat the drop.

The Mirror reports that the board have now come to the conclusion that Moyes is the right man to take the club forward in the long-term and thus, plan to offer him a new contract in the summer - and he is also keen to remain in the job provided that they stay up. He has already started scouting players for the summer.

However, while there is some support for the job that Moyes has done, a large majority of the fans on social media are disappointed by the reports as they feel that keeping the Scotsman represents a lack of ambition given where the team currently are in the table.

They feel that the club should be aiming their sights higher if they want to move themselves away from the relegation battle next season, while others have a lot of sympathy for the circumstances that Moyes has had to deal with and feel that he deserves the chance to get a summer window under his belt.

Here is the best of the reaction...

Getting a team to be disciplined & professional should be a shoe in for all managers.

'No ambition' & 'I will get behind it' - West Ham fans are split over David Moyes reports
Latest West Ham news includes fan reaction to reports regarding David Moyes
BY TASHAN DENIRAN-ALLEYNE
23:00, 5 APR 2018

Reports suggesting West Ham United are preparing to offer David Moyes a new contract hasn't gone down too well amongst some supporters.

According to The Mirror, the Hammers are set to hold their annual review in the summer, and they already believe Moyes is the man to take them forward following his decent work at the London Stadium since being appointed back in November.

The ex-Everton & Manchester United manager, who contracted to the east London outfit, until the end of the current campaign after succeeding the sacked Slaven Bilic, has taken Irons out of the drop zone and up to 14th in the Premier League table - five points clear of the dreaded dotted line, with a game in hand on four of the clubs below them.

He's made it clear that he would like to stay on past this season — but only if he keeps them up - and it would appear that the club's hierachy are pleased with the job he's done thus far.

The report states that the board are particularly pleased with Moyes’ approach to discipline and the response from the players since his arrival.

Furthermore, the likes of Joe Hart, Michail Antonio and Angelo Ogbonno have all responded well to the changes the Scotsman has made across the past six months.

However, some Irons fans aren't too keen on the 54-year-old being offered a contract extension, while others are warming to the idea.

Take a look at some of the standout responses on Twitter to the report....

7:11 PM - Apr 4, 2018

Last week Moyes stated his intention to manage in the Premier League next season - ideally with the Hammers: “I want a club I can move forward and I want a club which gives us every opportunity to do that," he told reporters.

“There’s no reason not to stay, but I want the club in the Premier League. It’s a big club, but I think it can get bigger.

"By having 60,000 people coming to the game, giving yourself that opportunity, you give yourself a real chance of attracting players – and obviously we’re in London.

“But I think people want to see that there’s a stability to the club as well in the way things are being done. So until I get a position we are in the Premier League then after that then let’s sit down and have the conversations.

"At the moment I’m trying to focus totally on staying in the league.”

The Hammers are back in action on Sunday when they make the short trip across London to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

'No confidence in the board'
By Simon Stone BBC Sport 31 Mar 2018.
Just after noon, at the end of a two-hour meeting in a cafe-bar close to London Stadium, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association decided upon a course of action.

"We were promised a world-class team in a world-class stadium," said a statement. "Today the members of the WHUISA that were present voted unanimously in a vote of no confidence in the current board of West Ham United to deliver this.

"We will therefore launch a concerted 'UNITED Campaign for Change' and will announce further details shortly.

RECALLING David Sullivan’s 2013 Christmas message to West Ham supporters;

"Getting the Olympic Stadium, I think will change the future of the Club and increase our fan base, by hundreds of thousands of supporters.

I think that getting the Olympic Stadium for the Club is one of the most important things that we have done this year and maybe in the history of the Club and it will do so much for supporters, because the facilities are so much better than they are at Upton Park.

The communication links to Stratford are vastly better than they are at Upton Park.

Everything at the Olympic Stadium will be better. The facilities, so much better, whether it is loos, bars, TVs, erm, it will just be on another level.

More importantly the Olympic Stadium will attract better players. If we are perceived as a big Club, with a great Stadium, erm, in the heart of London, erm, a lot of foreign players, who might not have come to us, wouldn’t be thinking of coming to us, will be attracted to come to West Ham. So we are very confident that when we get the Stadium, that we will have a better team than we have now."

I have done my best to transcribe it from the You Tube clip, as it is relevant to the discussions on this WHO thread.

Just FOUR years LATER;

West Ham financial gulf to Spurs widens
Posted by Sean Whetstone on April 4, 2018 in News, Whispers
Spurs announced record turnover yesterday for last season totalling £306m with a wage bill of £127m and a gross profit of over £117m. The North London club earned over £150m in TV money with a further £44m in Champions League prize money and £5m in prize money from a domestic cup run while ticket revenue reduced by £3m in the last season at White Hart Lane due to lowered capacity. Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy doubled his own salary from under £3m to over £6m per year.
The financial gulf between West Ham and Spurs has grown from £68m in 2016 to over £123m in 2017. It is really a case of the richest football clubs getting richer.
West Ham announced record turnover of £183m last month up from £142m in 2016, however, Spurs new figures of £306m was up from £210m in 2016 an increase of £96m!
Chelsea recorded revenue of £361m last season with Arsenal’s turnover close to £423m. When it comes to financial might West Ham will remain in fourth place in London for the foreseeable future. The London Stadium will make little difference in financial terms and the Hammers are a long way off from the £300m+ club.

West Ham United losing Domingos Quina would be blow to club's board
John Verrall
@JohnVerrall

West Ham United are set to face a battle to keep hold of Domingos Quina in the summer.

According to the Daily Mirror, West Ham United are facing a battle to keep hold of Domingos Quina in the summer.

Manchester United and Liverpool are both lining up to sign Quina, who has caught the eye with his performances in the Hammers’ development side this season.

And if West Ham fail to keep hold of Quina, the board will only come in for more criticism.

West Ham’s move to the London Stadium was controversial at the time, and is becoming a source of even greater frustration, due to the lack of progress the club has made in recent times.

West Ham’s board have been criticised for showing a lack of ambition, and losing Quina would only add fuel to the supporters’ argument.

If West Ham are unable to keep hold of their brightest prospects, then David Moyes’ side cannot hold out much hope of becoming a real force in the top tier.And West Ham’s board must do everything in their power to keep hold of Quina, as they could face a fierce backlash if he does depart.

Just FOUR years LATER, there is the ‘Andy Carroll soap opera’ that rumbles on and on…

West Ham fans debate Carroll future
by Matt Law
4/4/2018 | 11:55am

Andy Carroll has only made 12 Premier League appearances during what has been a frustrating 2017-18 campaign for the West Ham United forward.

Carroll missed the beginning of the season with a groin problem, and has been on the sidelines since the start of 2018 with an ankle injury.

It is thought that the centre-forward, who is valued at £9m by transfermarkt.co.uk, could return to action later this month, which would be a welcome boost for a West Ham team that are not yet safe from the drop.

Carroll has managed 32 goals and 18 assists in his 128 West Ham appearances since joining the London club from Liverpool.

He actually scored seven times in 18 Premier League appearances last term, but has managed just two league goals this season, and cannot seem to stay fit.

The West Ham supporters have been debating the future of the 29-year-old, and it would be fair to say that many want the striker, who was linked with Chelsea during the January transfer window, to be sold at the end of the season.

A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:

I watched Saturdays match in a bar.There were about 80 of us in there.all of us regular committed West Ham fans over the last 40 years,quite a few of us accompanied with our now grown up children.Most of us season ticket holders for decades.We weren't all from East London,Essex or Kent.There were friends from the Shires ,from Southampton,from Telford, Wales and Scotland.

We all have a common love for West Ham United.Of the 80 about 30 went in to the match and about 50 no longer go in to the London Stadium.many of those 50 still go to away matches.Of those that still go in half do not intend to renew and will stop going in until GSB are gone.So there you a have it.A whole section of some of our most fanatical fans gone.

Will we be replaced by the season ticket waiting list.-Perhaps,perhaps not.Those few that remain will be very sorry that we have packed it in.The new supporters will be pleased to see the back of us.That is all.

Re: Cleansing of West Ham Fan Base. (“…our supporters, who frankly are the best in the world.” David Sullivan)
I don't think this is about change that much. I doubt Tottenham fans will not be rioting over moving to their new ground as an example, nor, I suspect will Everton or Chelsea fans. People accept that things move on, and as long as they are provided with something in return that is as good as what they are leaving, they accept the difference.

This is principally about people realising that they've been lied to and reacting to that. We've been lied to and find ourselves in a ground which for many simply isn't fit for purpose and diminishes or even ruins an experience which has been part of the fabric of their lives. It's the ground, that fucking bowl in the middle of nowhere which is the main problem.

Many will put up with it and moan to whatever degree, a small number actually like it, and many will just drop out completely. Once the kids are older I'm in the latter camp, but it's got nothing to do with being unable or unwilling to change, and everything to do with the intrinsic shitness of that bowl as a football stadium.

The Board's response to people realising they've been lied to has been to try and suppress and alienate the traditional fanbase by various means in the belief that a more docile fan on the season ticket waiting list will replace them. Clearly there is some merit in that strategy.

“Beavis Danzig wrote:the pressure is off mate. been to every amble/protest, was there up at the directors box, did everything i could bar running on the pitch. a win is the opiate of the masses.”

I’ve never viewed the protest movement as anything other than a process that could take years. If we’d lost against Soton and the ground had exploded, I don’t think it necessarily would have improved anything. We’d just have been relegated and would have had even less money to spend on players and fixing the issues with the stadium.

There’s no guarantee that GSB would have sold the club. We were relegated in much worse circumstances - losing half a potential England team - but Brown didn’t sell after the relegation.

Even if GSB was completely genuine right now about spending big in the transfer market and fixing some of the issues surrounding the stadium, they can’t do anything until the transfer window opens and plans are made for improving the stadium. Let’s judge them on their response. If they continue to ignore the anger of the fans, then the protest movement will pick up steam again.

Did Crystal Palace get lucky escape as West Ham fans slam Hugill deal
Danny Owen
@danny8195

West Ham United beat Premier League rivals Crystal Palace to the last-gasp signing of Preston North End striker Jordan Hugill in January.

Crystal Palace might have had a lucky escape with Jordan Hugill.

As reported by the BBC, the Eagles lost out to West Ham United on January’s transfer deadline day as the Preston striker completed his £10 million move to the London Stadium.

But while Palace’s own lack of goals could yet cost them their Premier League status, Hugill has done very little at West Ham to suggest that he will play a major part in the relegation battle.

The striker, who scored a far from prolific eight times in 26 starts for Preston in the first half of the season, has managed just 22 minutes of league football for West Ham spread across three substitute appearances.

And, when asked why the Middlesbrough-born front man has struggled to make any kind of impression in claret and blue, Hammers fans have been fairly unequivocal.

Hugill, some believe, was simply an affordable panic buy with the window creaking shut, after Diafra Sakho had completed his return to Ligue 1 and left David Moyes rather short of goal-scoring options.

Others, however, go as far as to claim that Hugill was signed in preparation for West Ham’s possible relegation to the Championship.

One thing is for certain, however: Crystal Palace might just have saved themselves £10million.

‘10% OF THE PLAYER HE WAS’, ‘I’D TAKE OFFERS’ – WEST HAM FANS REACT BRUTALLY TO SKY BOMBSHELL

West Ham fans took to Twitter to declare their lack of sympathy after it emerged that winger Michail Antonio is set to miss the rest of the season.

Sky Sports claim on their website that the winger, 28, will be sidelined for the Hammers’ final seven matches of the season with the hamstring injury he suffered in Saturday’s 3-0 win against Southampton.

The right-winger left the pitch in tears after breaking down just 10 minutes into the clash at the London Stadium.

Sky Sports’ report that Antonio underwent a scan on Sunday and the feedback is shattering for the player, who has scored just three goals from 20 matches this season.

Antonio has suffered from countless injuries in recent seasons, including calf and rib problems in the current campaign, and a torn hamstring that required surgery last April.

West Ham fans have demonstrated a startling lack of sympathy to a once revered player.

One supporter tweeted that injury-ravaged Andy Carroll would have some company again, while another said Antonio must be offloaded in the summer.

Here is a selection of their best messages on Twitter:

West Ham fans react to Michail Antonio's injury update
Adefunmiloye Alani
@adefunmiloye

Michail Antonio has been ruled out of West Ham's remaining Premier League games due to a hamstring injury.

West Ham United secured a vital victory over the weekend, handing Southampton a 3-0 defeat at the London Stadium to go five points and four places clear of relegation.

However, an injury to Michail Antonio eight minutes into Saturday's game cast a shadow over the excellent result and BBC Sport report that the winger has played his last game of the season.


Sky Sports News
✔ @SkySportsNews
BREAKING: West Ham winger Michail Antonio to miss rest of season with hamstring injury, according to Sky sources. #SSN
10:06 AM - Apr 2, 2018

The 28-year-old only recently returned to action in February after sustaining a groin injury two days to Christmas.

Antonio has already had two stints on the injury sideline this term, as a hamstring injury he sustained last April ruled him out of pre-season preparations, while he also missed a month (six games) to a rib injury he suffered two months into the campaign.

The winger has featured in 21 Premier League games this term, but will now miss the remaining seven of West Ham's campaign.

Antonio emerged as the Hammer of the Year for last season after he contributed nine league goals and five assists to the club's campaign.

The former Nottingham Forest man scored eight league goals and assisted four during his debut campaign in 2015-16, but his return of three league goals and an assist this term indicates that his injury woes have gotten the better of his form.

Despite Antonio's lack of sharpness in front of goal, West Ham's run-in would have been boosted by his presence in the squad.

Hammers fans are divided in their opinions regarding the forward's injury, and some of their Tweets below say it all.

'No confidence in the board'
By Simon Stone BBC Sport 31 Mar 2018.

Just after noon, at the end of a two-hour meeting in a cafe-bar close to London Stadium, the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association decided upon a course of action.

"We were promised a world-class team in a world-class stadium," said a statement. "Today the members of the WHUISA that were present voted unanimously in a vote of no confidence in the current board of West Ham United to deliver this.

"We will therefore launch a concerted 'UNITED Campaign for Change' and will announce further details shortly.

‘The London Stadium was supposed to be the land of milk and honey’
West Ham supporters saw their side record a crucial win over Southampton but dissatisfaction with the board still runs high
Paul MacInnes at the London Stadium
Sun 1 Apr 2018 19.18 BST

Danny, 52, Croydon
The fans are protesting because they’ve had enough. We’ve been lied to systematically since we moved here. This was supposed to be the land of milk and honey but it’s hardly turned out that way. The ground is a joke. We’ve had a net spend of about £23m. We moved away from Upton Park but what we’ve seen in the last two or three years ... it’s just lies, lies, lies.

The press painted what happened at the Burnley match like they were disgusting scenes. But I’ve been supporting West Ham for 45 years and I’ve seen far worse. There were a handful of people who ran on the pitch and I know it’s not allowed, but life bans? That’s a bit extreme. I suppose that’s the way it is nowadays, though.

Programme seller, 19
Each game the fans come up to me and they’re not happy. They’re not expecting to win. They think the same thing is going to happen over and over and that everything will stay the same. If they do win, fans tend to think it’s a fluke.

I’ve only worked at the London Stadium, not at Upton Park, but it’s a nice place to work. I’ve never had people be rude to me. They’re quite nice when they come to me. But I wouldn’t say it’s as positive inside the stadium as you’d expect. They’re a big club and you’d expect that people would enjoy coming. But maybe it’s a chore for them now. It’s like they have to come because they’ve got a season ticket or something. They’re not really enjoying games much, I think. The club should listen to the fans. Maybe they should spend more money on players like they ask them to.

VIDEO: What's going on at West Ham? – video
Banner ($old a dream given a nightmare)

Lesley, late 60s, Chalfont St Peter
We are realists; we had to move. The way that the finances are within football today we couldn’t survive in a smaller ground. We’re still in the East End. I don’t understand it. You’ve got to move on in life, therefore if it has changed you’ve got to accept that change and deal with it.

I wouldn’t go to the old ground because I didn’t like the proximity of all the other people, I couldn’t see properly. But I love it here. I’m comfortable, I’m in among people that are all pleasant. We’ve joined a nice club where we can sit down and have a couple of drinks and something to eat before the match. You couldn’t do that at Upton Park because those places didn’t exist. If the team won more matches, the atmosphere would be entirely different. The crowd would be much happier. So let’s move on.

Kevin, 50, Wanstead
There’s a little bit of frustration with the profits made and the distribution of those profits. I think it’s exacerbated now by David Sullivan’s tax situation [Sullivan was found to have used the club to avoid paying £700,000 tax at a recent tribunal]. That doesn’t help the situation. Karren Brady is a bit of an issue because I don’t think she was liked before she came and her aloofness doesn’t help.

I’ve got a lot of time for David Gold. He was born on Green Street, he played for the unders, he loves West Ham. But Gold is tainted by his association with Sullivan. As far as the fans are concerned, it’s a very different atmosphere purely because there aren’t many loyal West Ham supporters. If this was at Upton Park, we wouldn’t be in this situation. Season ticket renewals are coming up and the club know the records of who used to be at Upton Park and who didn’t. They should talk to those people about where they’re sitting and the atmosphere. If you get a few of the old boys around the newbies, it would be different.

Charlie, 27, Leytonstone
The atmosphere is absolutely toxic. I’m on the side of the fans but not in the way they go about showing it. There are fights breaking out in the crowd; there’s so much animosity towards the board. It’s a very very bad situation to be in. Throwing coins at people [as happened to Sullivan during the Burnley match] is just not on.

There’s not much identity at the stadium. It was sold on a bit of a promise: that you’d be close to the pitch and there would be a good atmosphere. But it’s not been great. On the other hand, it has become more accessible and they’ve priced it very well. You can get kids’ season tickets for £100, which is great. The fans are as much to blame as the owners really for the way they’ve behaved.

One thing I would say is that the social media activity of the board is horrific. They linked themselves with [Real Madrid’s] Benzema the other day. Get real. We’re not going to buy a player like that. So they probably need to think about the way they present the club on social media and ultimately, especially if we go down, they probably need to sell up and go.

1000 fans marching from Stratford Station in the pissing rain with minimum advertisement beforehand is not an insignificant amount for a protest march.

If it was widely accepted "200" made such a racket inside the stadium underneath them, 5 times that is numbers swelling not reducing.

And that's just the ones that bothered to make the effort, not taking into account thousands of others who think the same but didn't for whatever reason attend the march.

LLDC Offers Statue Olive Branch

Filed: Saturday, 31st March 2018
By: Staff Writer D

Stadium owners the London Legacy Development Corporation have made the first move in an attempt to improve relations with the club.

With the relationship between the Club and the stadium owners currently strained, LLDC have attempted to improve the atmosphere between the two parties by paying for five fibre-glass busts to be erected in honour of former players around the stadium walkway – with more to come.

A spokesman for Mayor Sadiq Khan, whose office now has ultimate responsibility for the stadium, said: “We realise that attempts to ‘West Ham-ify” the stadium have only been partially successful…”

Yeah. She's the BBC's example of successful women in business. Unfortunately she has benefited from the po rn industry so it's hardly a position to aspire to. She's also helped to run West Ham into the ground. Perhaps they could get the ex yahoo exec in as an example of women in business....oops she didn't do so well either did she.

West Ham Fans Stage Protest March Before Southampton Clash
Agency France-Presse March 31, 2018

West Ham supporters staged a protest march against the Premier League club’s beleaguered owners before the match against Southampton on Saturday.

Hammers fans are furious at the way the club has been run following the move from their historic Upton Park ground to the unpopular Olympic Stadium in east London.

They congregated outside Stratford station before making their way to the ground.

The supporters, many of whom were carrying banners, marched around the stadium singing anti-board songs.

West Ham are languishing close to the Premier League relegation zone and ill-feeling among fans has boiled over in recent weeks.

Security inside the ground has been beefed up after serious crowd disturbances tarnished West Ham’s last home match against Burnley on March 10.

Fans invaded the pitch during the defeat, while others threw missiles toward West Ham co-owners David Sullivan, who was struck by a coin, and David Gold. They were forced to flee their seats.

In response to those incidents, a security barrier has been erected close to the directors’ box.

West Ham fans protest march ahead of Premier League clash against Southampton
It's not quite on the scale originally hoped but a demonstration went ahead
BY SAM INKERSOLE WEST HAM CORRESPONDENT
14:11, 31 MAR 2018
UPDATED14:14, 31 MAR 2018

Estimates of between 400 and 1000 West Ham fans got together and marched to the London Stadium in protest to the West Ham board of directors ahead of the game against Southampton.

A protest was originally planned before the Burnley game three weeks ago but was called off after the Real West Ham Fans Action Group - who have now dropped the "Action Group" from their title - came to a compromise with the Hammers owners.

However, ahead of the Saints game, other supporters groups and the Real West Ham fans came together to march to the stadium ahead of the relegation six-pointer at Stratford.

It was certainly not on the scale that was originally planned for three weeks ago, when thousands were expected to attend before it was soddenly shelved following a meeting between RWHFAG and Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady.

The low-key demonstration took place and passed off without any incident according to eye-witnesses.

A spokesman for the RWHFG told football.london: "We are supporting the static protest for two core reasons - to demonstrate to the board that our issues are with the way the club is run - we are NOT protesting against the team AND to allow supporters to vent their frustrations and ire lawfully before the game so that everyone can concentrate solely on getting behind the team during the game.

Fans take to the streets for anti-Board demos
Filed: Saturday, 31st March 2018
By: Staff Writer

Several hundred supporters have partaken in two separate anti-Board demonstrations ahead of this afternoon's Premier League match against Southampton.

The first group set off from Stratford Park at 12.30pm and later met a second party of suppporters at Stratford main station, shortly after 1pm, before marching towards the Olympic Stadium together.

It is estimated that just shy of a thousand supporters were involved in the two rallies, instigated in order to maintain pressure on the club's unpopular management team, including owners David Sullivan and Davod Gold plus vice chair Karren Brady.

Meanwhile a third gathering of supporters met at a WHUISA meeting this lunchtime, where a vote of no confidence was passed in the Board of Directors by those in attendance.

* For clarification purposes, KUMB.com were not involved in either of the protests that took place today.

Today I'm protesting, I 'm protesting against the board. I'm a ST holder and regular away fan. I'm doing this for me and my son, so he has a future supporting this club. I'll meet at 1pm and shout sing and show my banner. I'm protesting to show my feelings to the board. I'm not protesting under a group or a banner, I'm protesting as a West Ham fan. I hope there's big numbers - Sullivan said it's only a small minority who want him out...lets show him how wrong he is.

But, once inside the ground, even if we go a goal down...for today, lets really get behind the team for 90 minutes. And next home game we go again, and again until GSB get the message that they ARE NOT WANTED.

Gotta admit when I first rocked up at Stratford park I'd seen bigger bus queues and questioned whether it was worth the effort. But as soon as we trudged in the pissing rain to Stratford station forecourt met by a much sizeable crowd heading to the Stadium it was well worth it in the end. Good old sing song and camaraderie before finally giving it by the directors entrance I'm sure they heard.

Then we all did our bit from first whistle to the last to show the world we know better than anyone how to back the Team perfectly fine thank you without any help.

I did try starting a sack the board chant after a couple of goals down but kept getting drowned out with the usual generic chanting which I understand. I wish how a did sing a few once we were winning to show we ain't fair weather and only got the ****hole when we lose which isn't the case at all.

Did the fans offer a pittance for players and not even deliver that?
Did the fans promise to sign world beaters and not get any of them?
Did the fans promise world class and deliver a 37 year old and a non scoring, non playing striker?
Did the fans not bother tracking back and watch from afar whilst we conceded? (Well, yes, in terms of the latter - given the majority are seated half a mile away from the action...)
Did the fans receive a fortune in wages and a holiday in the sun for doing nothing resembling their job?
Did the fans pick a disgruntled right winger as a left back?
Did the fans sell, rather than buy, to weaken the squad?
There are a litany if such questions and none of them involve the blame falling on the fans.

Report: Sullivan moved for Saints game
Posted by Hugh5outhon1895 on March 31, 2018 in News, Whispers

David Sullivan is being reported this morning as being set to abandon his seat in the West Ham directors’ box this afternoon.

The Sun claims he is being moved from the front row to a ‘safe zone’ for today’s match against Southampton.

A Hammers insider is claimed to have told the ‘paper that “Mr Sullivan is upset about this.”

And he allegedly added: “He is being moved to the back row from the front to avoid antagonising the supporters.

“It is a sad situation but he just wants the game to pass off peacefully so the team can do its best.”

Security has been beefed up to the ultimate degree as the Irons set about taking a major step towards securing their Premier League safety.

Safety barriers have now been erected to provide an ‘exclusion zone’ below where Sullivan and his fellow chairman David Gold normally sit as the club look to avoid any form of trouble.

West Ham fans furious over new security measures
by Ben Goodwin BGinge8
30/3/2018 | 05:08pm

West Ham fans are once again furious with their owners, after the club announced new security measures at the London Stadium.

Hammers’ fans were angered last week when the club issued lifetime stadium bans to five fans for the protests during the loss to Burnley.

Of course, plenty of fans were disappointed by the manner of the some of the protests, but the message of the protests was something nearly every fan could agree on.

Now the club have announced new security measures at the ground, which includes security gates throughout the concourse and on the bridges in the lower tier.

Fans gathered on the bridge in front of the director’s box last time out to harass the club’s owners, and now fans feel that the new security measures are more focused on protecting the men in charge than the fans in the stands.

West Ham host Southampton on Saturday, which will be absolutely massive in the race for Premier League survival.

Following a rallying cry from captain Mark Noble earlier this week, the club has asked fans to unite and get behind the team.

Some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…

These interviews will never tell us anything new. They'll apologise for the frilly bits that could have been better, but they'll never admit to outright lying about the stadium plans/transfer funds/debts etc.

Great video. It's nice to see the facts laid out for lazy people like me. Obviously I suspected a lot of economical answers, but it's great to see the evidence to highlight just how political his responses were. I believe David Gold is a fan, but I think he's a fan of money more.

West Ham ramp up security for Saints match after ugly scenes at London Stadium

West Ham have given further details of the enhanced security measures put in place for Saturday's Premier League game against Southampton at the London Stadium.

The Hammers' last home game against Burnley on March 10 was marred by a number of crowd disturbances.

Five fans invaded the pitch while co-owner David Sullivan was struck by a coin after a protest in front of the directors' box turned nasty. A number of banning orders have since been issued and more are expected to follow.

The club are now taking steps to avoid any repeat and have announced that there will be an increased police and security personnel presence this weekend. Additional security gates have also been installed to limit fans' movements around the stadium.

The announcements follow reports earlier in the week that a security barrier would be erected to prevent supporters getting too close to the directors' box.

It IS blatantly political though.

FSF blast Mayor's false report
Filed: Friday, 30th March 2018
By: Staff Writer

The Football Supporters' Federation have responded to reports that incorrectly reported the number of arrests and incidents which occurred during the recent West Ham v Burnley match.

Following the match and a subsequent meeting of the local Safety Advisory Board (SAB), London Mayor Sadiq Khan falsely claimed that there has been "150 incidents of trouble".

He also insisted that the disruptions during the game were part of an organised plot by "a known group of individuals" - even though it is virtually impossible for most supporters to receive a phone signal inside the stadium.

Following Khan's wild and unsubstantiated claims, both the Met police and West Ham United confirmed that the details had not been supplied them - whilst representatives of stadium operators LS185 refused to comment.

And police have since confirmed that there were actually a total of 41 recorded incidents on the day, incidents that included the releasing of balloons and a missing child; considerably less than the figure given to Khan.

Posting on twitter this morning in response to Khan's comments, the FSF's Amanda Jacks hit out at the unnamed sources who provided the false figures.

"The shift from 150 incidents at the West Ham v Burnley game including 40 assaults and accusations of conspiracy that were publicly condemned by London’s Mayor, to a police-recognised 41 incidents including the release of black balloons and a missing child is really quite something," she wrote.

West Ham face Southampton at the Olympic Stadium tomorrow, the first time the arena has been used to host football since the Burnley clash. Supporters are planning at least two anti-Board demonstrations before the game.

In the 70's and 80's before the days of Ex announcing our line up in advance of a game, you would hear grown men wailing when it was announced that Sir Trev wasn't playing - He was that good. I got to work with him for a few years whilst he was at the FA and he was exactly how I'd imagined - a thoroughly decent guy and absolute gentleman. It was great to meet your boyhood hero and not feel in any way disappointed.

I'm therefore gutted that these absolute arseholes who own our club, together with their permanently unleashed bitch have used him in this way. I'm also gutted that he has allowed this to happen. Calling for 'in stadium unity and support' is one thing. But that whole piece was straight out of Brady's mouth and he should have had the balls to say no.

West Ham v Southampton: Extra security for London Stadium game to cost taxpayers £60,000
By Simon Stone
BBC Sport
About £60,000 of taxpayers' money will be used to pay for increased security at West Ham's home Premier League match against Southampton on Saturday.

The match will be the first at London Stadium since trouble flared at the 3-0 defeat by Burnley on 10 March.

Twenty fans were given life bans, including four for invading the pitch.

A substantially increased security presence includes measures to stop fans getting in front of the directors' box as occurred during the Burnley game.

Under the terms of the Hammers' 99-year lease at the former Olympic Stadium - agreed by former London Mayor Boris Johnson - security is paid for by the centrally funded body that runs the venue.

The Propaganda Machine
Posted by jhammers Thu Mar 29, 2018 11:50 am
So since the events that unfolded vs Burnley the following players have been used by the club to try and 'calm the situation down...'

Noble
Zabaleta
Arnautovic
Lanzini
Noble again

And now... Sir Trevor Brooking.
https://www.standard.co.uk/sport/footba ... 01821.html


Something doesn't quite sit right with me the likes of Noble and Brooking 'siding' with the board.

Noble says in his most recent 'message to the fans' :

"negativity can undoubtedly affect players’ concentration and confidence, as I believe it did in the second half against Burnley"

What about the other 30 games when the fans have been up and down the country supporting you?

Noble:
"I can understand the frustrations some of you are feeling. This season has not gone how we’d all hoped it would"

Oh yes Mark its all about the football being poor isn't it, not like we're used to watching shite every year. If he honestly believes that's what its all about then he is seriously out of touch with the fans.

I give Noble a bit of leeway here as he is employed by the owners so he can't just come out and say 'yeah board out, the fucking crooks' but all these little messages leave a sour taste.

Now onto Mr West Ham sir Trevor Brooking.

"I find it difficult to see how anyone could feel that the type of violent demonstration we saw is going to help the club we all love. I always believe fans should be entitled to air their views. If they want to protest, yes, that is their right. But it should not be done when it can adversely affect the performances of Mark Noble and his team-mates."

Well.. we tried to do that Trevor but it was cancelled by the club and something they desperately tried to avoid. Hence why emotions spilled over. It's not the fans fault that the owners have failed to deliver on their promises.

Sir Trevor: "I also know that a lot of hard work is going on behind the scenes to make the stadium feel more like home"

We have been in this stadium nearly 2 seasons now, we had years to prepare the stadium to 'feel like home' for when we were due to move in.
----

Anyone else getting a bit fed up of this propaganda machine? As we've known from this club in recent years 'talk is cheap' - just do it on the pitch.
Blaming the fans and telling them to 'support the team' isn't doing much good, the fans have been supporting you all season so don't make it seem like the 'toxic atmosphere from fans' has got us in this relegation trouble. Inept management, poor tactics, shit stadium, lying, thieving owners - shall i go on?

Exactly what Geo said would happen.

Doesnt make Sir Trev wrong though, entering the pitch during a game will not help get 3 pts and safety.

And Arnie should be captain for the rest of the season.

Dont really matter that the march was cancelled now does it?! The point has been made and maybe came out worse than Sullyedvan had wished.

Dont really matter who cancelled the march, couldnt have marched anyway on my understanding, not legally anyway.

Dont really matter if Sullyedvan doled out early easter pressies, thats speculation anyway, but if he did it wasnt well spent was it?! The dirt is afloat.

Hes getting desperate now hes working on the emotional side , doubt if it will work as he always comes out with clangers.

Two more days for the arse shitting his pants," will they wont they, oh it dont matter i have barricaded myself in,"

Like us, he dont want us to go down, but for entirely different reasons. Well Sullyedvan, better hope the players perform, cause the twelth man is getting pissed off.

….what really did make me chuckle IS ... what exactly do all these PRAVDA-like appeals mean when they say words to the effect of “ get behind the players and leave your protesting till the summer” ?
Do they expect all the fans to spend June and July protesting outside an empty stadium ?

Or will WHUISA be organising illegal marchs and “static protests” outside Sullivan’s Theydon Bois crib whilst he’s sunning himself in Spain for two months ?

Or are they hoping they’ll make a couple of half decent loan signings in the summer and expect everybody to just forget it ?

How on earth can anything be addressed in the summer ?

By the time all the duped ST renewees realise they’ve been had (again) it’ll be too fucking late and all this shit will just start up again ...
