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.”

Journalist questions action group name
Posted by Sean Whetstone on February 23, 2018 in News, Whispers

Daily Mail Journalist Martin Samuel has questioned the action group’s name asking whether it suggests you are not a real West Ham fan if you don’t march next month.

The “real” West Ham fan refers to every West Ham fan except Sullivan (who claims to be one) Brady and to a lesser extent Gold


mooro66uk February 23, 2018 at 3:21 pm
I think somebody has been very clever in getting fellow fans to focus on the name of the group rather than their aims. Thus diverting peoples attention from the REAL issues here.

Does it really matter about the title of the group? If you march it should be on the issues not on the name.

What really amazes me is that some people can be so upset by the “real” in the name yet will turn a blind eye to the misinformation, poor administration, terrible transfer dealings, waste of transfer funds, unfortunate media gaffs and all round poor performance of our board.

And please,please don’t keep saying that Sully is a Hammers fan. By his own admission he is Cardiff. COYI

huge part of the groups job is done, message properly getting out there.

let's bang this fucking issue, shall we .... 'real' was meant as in the supporters are real and the board are not real supporters. also, I think the intention is to remove the word 'real' at some stage.

It's not aimed at an enquiring public, it's aimed at supporters that might have their faith in the board shaken. An attempt at immunisation, or to prevent the spread of the infection. He's not going to engage with the arguments any more than he has to, indeed he presents some relatively benign admin failures as the only legitimate criticisms of the club to divert attention from the other issues.

Carefully put together on his part I think. Hits all the important points that the board would like to see, equates them with the Glazers and other successful owners, depicts the protesters as ungrateful, unappreciative of their betters and ill informed, and describes a scenario where the club needed saving from staying at the Boleyn. And of course stokes the fires of internal unrest by telling passive supporters that the protesters are calling them names.

Quite the hatchet job, working at the Mail has really rubbed off on him.

I mentioned the other day that I believed the meet was orchestrated to hear from the horses mouth the collective issues, not to try and fix them but to understand them. It now appears that their fight back is within the press, to dilute the 'silly fans' protest, starting with the name 'Real' and trying point a finger stating that the group believe that unless you are a member or going to march then you are not a real fan. They are trying to turn people on the fence against the group.

I found the Samuel Martin piece really patronising by suggesting we were going down the pan at UP and because we haven't got instant success we are throwing our toys out the pram..... and he calls himself a West Ham fan! Could someone please post Mr Samuel the 'Razzle Dazzle' video....

We was happy as we were, we know who we are - they raised the bar and promised the world to move away from our home its them who have not delivered.

I agree completely with what Tompka said and for me its not just about a badge, a stadium move, the lies, the money (lack of), 7%, the impression of the club and also the "here's £4, if you don't accept we will sign someone from PSG" mentality, its the whole thing, its everything they have done. They have destroyed the club from all angles and I cannot wait for the day they leave. They had an opportunity to try and put things right especially when the group first approached them about the 5 point plan. They don't want to change, they don't want to listen.

Unfulfilled ambition. I've been so blind.

There I've been blaming Gold & Sullivan for being greedy, uncaring owners & all the time I was wrong. All along, it was simply all down to unfulfilled ambition. I will get the march cancelled immediately.

We can't risk creating unnecessary strife within the club and giving the press and opposing supporters something to beat us over the head with.

Thank god we're so close to the pitch.


Ham-strung
When is the right time to "cause unnecessary strife" as you'd like to call it?

There isn't one but after the consistent 'lies' (and yes, I use that word because that's what they are, pure and simple and too many over the past 8 years to list here) the fans, a majority it seems, have been pushed too far. Their loyalty has been abused too many times, for too long. And a protest OUTSIDE of a game, where voices and feelings can be heard without directly affecting the players and team on the pitch shows more respect than either Gold, Sullivan and Brady have. They have media outlets with friendly cohorts to spout their lies in the expectation of validation. Where are the fans supposed to let their feelings be known, other than through anonymous Tweets or the equally abhorrent Talksport?

"Privilege of calling ourselves West Ham fans"?? What the hell does that mean? If, to you, that means bowing down before our tin pot leaders and being grateful for the scraps we're given, then I pity you. Being a fan doesn't mean I have to bend over and take whatever richer, more powerful people give to me and then thank them for it afterwards! They should be the ones feeling privileged that so many of us still love our club (despite there being many better options out there), still spend our hard-earned money on the club and still, through all the minute ups and the gravity-defying downs, hold our heads high and proud. But they don't but with the growing depth of feeling against them maybe they will. I doubt it but, as a West Ham fan, I can only ever be optimistic. It's all I have.
Enjoy your apathy!

If your happy with the new place so be it,but there are a lot of people who hate everything about the move...generations of my family have been more than happy to spend our saturdays at westham,i took my own children from the age of 4 & 5 they are now well into their twentys,but none of us is bothered about going anymore because everything now is so "Unwestham!!"...50 years of my life following this club & they have changed it so much its unrecognisable...yes we have to move on but it doesnt mean we have to accept it!!

Dicks is the man
Wed, 21/02/2018 - 20:38
a big problem imo is that a lot of fans, myself included were convinced by the 'we need this move to progress as a club;. this was the big quote at the time i recall. i wasnt entirely convinced, but the lure of 'competing with the big clubs' swung it. we were told the 60,000 seater stadium would bring in the revenue to propel us, to lure big name players to the club. now the dust has settled, we were conned. we've achieved absolutely nothing that we couldn't have done staying at U.P. no 'big' names are flocking to play for us and no big money is being splashed out. so basically we got the 60,000 seater stadium but no benefit from it? its been long enough now to be seeing results of the move yet people are still putting excuses like - Bilic was crap not their fault, players like Allen, Shelvey didnt want to come, and prices are too expensive….well all those things were said to not be a problem before the move, even if Bilic were crap, why not get rid and appoint 'a big name' then? allen and shelvey didnt want to come/too expensive? wasnt that what the move was for - to get these deals done? and then there's fred who claims they aren't making any money because the tickets are being sold cheap….so what the hell was the point of moving?

Red Neck Iron
Wed, 21/02/2018 - 21:44
It would be a big step if they would actually stop lying and be totally open about the things that have happened in the last 2 years and also going forward. Also how about respecting the fans and even the players and managers. A bit of professionalism wouldnt go a miss either. Every week there is some kinda drama painting the club in a negative way and I'm sick of it!

‘IS THIS A JOKE?’, ‘AMAZING’ – WEST HAM FANS SHOCKED BY OFFICIAL CLUB UPDATE
Date: 20th February 2018 at 7:06pm
Written by: Rachael Warham
AddThis Sharing Buttons

West Ham United have been charged with misconduct over the FA’s rule on anti-doping.

Sam Inkersole, reporter for Football.London, quoted from the club statement on his official Twitter feed and stated that it was a matter involving the club’s administration over the FA’s whereabouts policy and nothing to do with a player.

Sam InkersoleVerified account
@Sam_InkersoleTM
West Ham writer for @Football_LDN. Email - sam.inkersole@trinitymirror.com
Statement from West Ham: "The breach relates to administrative oversights on The FA's whereabouts system. We would like to make it clear that the breach is a Club administrative matter and does not concern any of our players.”
4:25 PM - Feb 20, 2018

As quoted by the Football.London writer, the club responded to the news and said: “The breach relates to administrative oversights on The FA’s whereabouts system. We would like to make it clear that the breach is a Club administrative matter and does not concern any of our players.”

Both Manchester City and Bournemouth have been hit with fines in the past due to the breach of regualtion14(d) and handed penalties of £35,000.

The Hammers have not been having an easy time of it lately, particularly with matters off the pitch.
David Moyes has had to deal with a spate of injuries to a number of key players which has hampered his ability to regularly field his strongest XI.

As such the club has had a season-long battle against relegation, and despite steering their way clear of the drop, results lately have meant that they have once more nose-dived back into the danger zone and face the very real threat of having to play Championship football next season.

And supporters of the Irons are not happy with this latest announcement – many of them feeling that this typifies the bad luck the team has encountered all season.

Here is a selection of Twitter responses to the breaking news:

Thanks Pinky. Brady makes my blood boil - I wonder why she didn't want to even consider giving up her sun column...? It's all about the money and brand image with her, she couldn't give a flying **** about this club and its supporters.

Sullivan not attending is a joke, as you say I guarantee he will be well enough to go up to Liverpool on the weekend.

Also why is Gold a 35% shareholder supposedly not aware of the meeting when he is the one who has been seeing a lot of the stuff going on over on Twitter. Frankly I think its a joke neither of them where there and they left the Rottweiler to deal with the questions again. WE MARCH ON.

So, nothing really surprising us here, right ? Did Brady sit on a throne when she was talking to the plebs representing the fanbase ?
That Brady puts her right to proceed with the Sun column to boost her profile above any detrimenting effects this might have on the very club she works for and represents is telling us all we need to know.

Sullivan seriously ill ? Poor old chap. Maybe running a football club (poorly) ain't doing his health any favours. Seriously, I don't see much point actually meeting with them again.
They have nailed their colours to the mast, those opposed to them should Do the same.

Dialogue only makes any sense if compromise is a possibility. Them lot don't compromise, they manipulate, twist the truth and raise expectations only to crap on them whenever they can.
They follow their own little masterplan and the wellbeing of our club is very much secondary.

The more people realise this the better. Thanks for your efforts UTJ and TPP!

really thought the board's survival instincts would've kicked in and they'd make at least a blushing attempt at a mea cupla.

the badge bit is the perfect encapsulation of how much the club are willing to move on an issue. "we did surveys to canvas opinion", did they b*llocks. they went to yougov or whichever professional opinion fabricators they chose to come back with exact data they want, just so they can wave it around at times like this.

i'm sure they'll go back and check their data and see that yes, it's the exact same data they paid for two years ago.

thanks to all involved for their efforts here, if only to expose what most of us already assumed. that they can't even understand and react to their situation speaks volumes about their suitability to manage an entity as turbulent as a football club

Without a commitment to make the OS fit for purpose or to move to a stadium that is, they must go.
Everything else is irrelevant.

They need to be hounded out and it must be made clear to any any prospective new owners that a commitment to a suitable stadium is a pre-requisite for ownership of West Ham United.

Any new owners who fail in this regard should also be hounded out.

I will accept nothing else

I'm a bit surprised by this. It seems a bit trivial and not what all this was meant to be about. Mind you I might have missed the point entirely.

I thought this was entirely about:

Where has all the money gone
Squad investment - player aquisitions
Player development - academy

Retractable seating

You can't raise the ticket prices when you have done nothing about moving the bloody seating closer the pitch as was promised 2 years ago. The Sun article is not authored by KB - that much is obvious - and is important for other reasons which is why KB has no intention of relinquishing.The badge is a subjective thing and is what it is. The history is the past and we don't need to worry about that. You can't change it even if you wanted to.

The stewards are outsourced wallahs and that's the way the world is.

Firstly, I would not have agreed to the meeting as there is nothing to ask that will be answered and they are only prepared to acknowledge the insignificant.

Why was player recruitment not analysed as in (i) lack of annual spend (ii) insistence on silly loans (iii) still competing with Huddersfield and Palace for players.

Why was seating not questioned vigorously as in (i) distance and lies (ii) high school standard stands.

Why did everyone not walk out when she failed to answer a question?

In simple and effective terms, all delegates should have issued a vote of no confidence both personally and publiucly, in her and the board? A load of old b*llox but effectively states our position.

Why was she not told that protests will continue and become more vigorous until boardroom changes?

It just confirms what bunch of cunts that run our club and the pure disregard they have for us.

We know where we stand and they was unable to stop the action that has now started and will not stop until we get what we deserve.

It proves what a couple of cowards we have in charge,one pretending he is ill and the other acting like the senile grandad that does not know what's going on,completed by an arrogant bitch who put herself first and will keep writing a nauseating column in a nauseating paper,whatever harm it does to our club.

They have got away in the past by having meetings and kidding people that things will get better and then delivering nothing.

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2

… that's very insightful, and about what we expected. We kinda guessed that if we made it clear we would march 'anyway' (that the march was about what they had/hadn't done ALREADY), that the Daves (certainly Sully) would fail to attend, and sure enough...

WTF Brady was on trying to say Goldie didn't know about it is anybody's guess - they really do think we're a bunch of half wits and morons, clearly...

I do feel for the Daves a bit, they have given Brady her head and assumed she was married in to modern day requirements, but actually she is the worst sort of elitist arse and has no genuine time or interest in 'ordinary people' (aka 'customers'). It's not even funny.

My own view is that, whatever the outcome, the present ownership arrangement is never going to fly, and the potential future situation is worse still. Can you imagine the club being owned and run by Sully's kids and Brady? Nightmare. I'd rather burn it to the fucking ground than live through that.

As Michael Cane said about leaving the EU... he'd rather be a poor master than a wealthy slave any day... that's where we are.

Spread the word, fellas, we know some of the MSM will try to bail the board out, but there is an awful lot more of us. We need to get OUR message out on FB, Twitter, and all the other platforms. It doesn't matter how many times Sully gobs off to Jim White and Co, REAL people and REAL fans will research it on social media and make their own minds up. Let's get 'em OUT.

FURTHER evidence…

West Ham co-chairman David Gold hits back at fan on Twitter
Mathew Nash
@hitcmathewnash
Published 20th February 2018.

The Hammers chief backed his players after a twitter barb.

West Ham United fans have been venting their displeasure at the club’s owners David Gold and Sullivan all season long. The fans believe the team has not been invested in enough during the summer and winter transfer windows and are disappointed in the direction the club is going.

This was again evident on Twitter last night. After co-chairman Gold tweeted to a fan congratulating them on the birth of a new daughter, one fan commented on how the newborn would be better off as a West Ham fan if Gold and co were not in charge.

It was a post that got a swift riposte from the West Ham chief. He criticised the comment, suggesting it would insult the current West Ham players.

12:36 AM - Feb 20, 2018

Of course, he opened himself up to even more online criticism with that post.

It is easy to see both sides of the argument here. Firstly, Gold could be commended for backing his current players. He was also responding to a West Ham fan who had just had a baby, which is a class act from the co-owner.

Then there is the opposite side of the coin. West Ham fans have been suffering for some time and found the January transfer window to be highly underwhelming. The desperation signing of Patrice Evra after the window had shut showed the Hammers maybe did not have a successful window.

West Ham fans are not about to go out and stop supporting their current players and whoever is on the field will get some support, as long as they try their best.

But Hammers fans wanted more signings like Marko Arnautovic and Javier Hernandez in January, but they never came along.

West Ham just want to see the squad grow bigger, and stronger, not just the former.

West Ham fans react angrily to co-owner’s latest tweet
by Alex Ford

West Ham United fans have taken to social media to tear into one of the club’s owners following comments he made when replying to a tweet.

It has been no secret that the Hammers’ faithful have not been the biggest supporters of the hierarchy at the London Stadium outfit, however, David Gold will not have made matters any better.

The former Birmingham City co-owner was replying to a tweet left by a fan who stated that “if we get decent owners who buy decent players you will be very happy”.

The chairman replied stating: “Don’t you think our current players would find your comments insulting? Dg”.

This led to a number of West Ham fans providing remarks about previous comments made by Gold regarding a number of their own players.

Robert Snodgrass and Jose Fonte have felt the brunt of criticism from David Sullivan and Karen Brady as well as Gold.

Fans took to Twitter to provide their reactions to the comments, with a number of them sharing the opinion that the co-owners should leave the club as soon as possible, whilst others felt they should keep their comments to themselves.

David Gold questions West Ham fans over decision to stage protest march
Damien Lucas
@damienlucas
20th February 2018.

West Ham United fans are planning a protest march next month.

West Ham have endured another turbulent season and despite turning a corner under David Moyes they are not quite out of the woods just yet.

The Hammers beat Watford 2-0 last time out to move onto 30 points, a remarkable turnaround given the East Londoners sat in the relegation zone with just nine points when Moyes took over in November.

But a second season of disappointments on and off the pitch has taken its toll on West Ham's loyal supporters, 52,000 of whom purchased season tickets at their new London Stadium home for a second season running - behind only Manchester United.

In fact supporters have grown so fed up of broken promises from co-owners David Sullivan, David Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady that they have come together to arrange a protest march ahead of the Burnley game on March 10th calling for change.

Thousands are expected to turn out for the march with flags and banners.

As a result the owners pledged to meet with supporter groups to discuss their concerns, as revealed on the club's official website.

And Gold seemed to make his views on the march abundantly clear when he endorsed a number of tweets questioning the validity of the protest.

A series of tweets opposing the protest march being arranged by the Real West Ham Fans group have been retweeted by Gold to his near 200,000 following.
One tweet reads: "We have gone from a debt ridden, joke to an actual club with ambition attracting top talent, in a top draw stadium. It’s not the board fault the fans aren’t getting behind it #LongLiveTheBoard."

Another says: "West Ham was going bankruptcy and in the 11th hour the two Davids help save the club or we would of been the next Leeds...all this crap with the board we should give them 1-2 more season. I will get my hard hat."

Another tweet questioning the validity of the march and asking why fans did not march under the ownership of Terence Brown or the Icelandic regime - which has since been deleted - was also retweeted by Gold.

A string of other messages in support of the board have also been retweeted by the co-owner.

A meeting was held between the club and supporter groups on Monday night and according to many who attended Karren Brady was present but neither Sullivan nor Gold were.

Same Sullivan soundbites, different year as West Ham fans get a sense of deja vu from co-owner
Damien Lucas
@damienlucas
Published 20th February 2018.

It was like groundhog day when West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan addressed fans following another disappointing transfer window.

West Ham have turned a corner under David Moyes in what has been another rocky season flirting with relegation.

The Hammers are not out of the woods yet but look likely to preserve their Premier League status after reaching 30 points with the impressive 2-0 win over Watford last time out.

For supporters, though, that achievement will be very much in spite of Sullivan, fellow co-owner David Gold and unpopular vice-chairman Karren Brady.

After another miserable transfer window failure in January and with the club just three points off the bottom three fans were revolting.

A win has dispersed some of the dark clouds for now but the fans are unbending and plan a major protest march next month to make their feelings unequivocally clear.

The majority feel betrayed by the two David's and Brady over broken promises with regards transfer spending, ambition and the move to the former Olympic Stadium.

And they have wised up to Sullivan's soundbites too.

Almost exactly a year after publicly pleading with fans to stick with him after a dismal transfer window, Sullivan was at it again.

Speaking to fans via a staged interview on the club's official website Sullivan once again promised supporters to stick with the club as he tries to get it right in the transfer market.

A complete overhaul of the club's recruitment policy and methodology was pledged as Sullivan begged for unity.

What he wasn't banking on was just how United the fan base is, against the broken rhetoric of which they have grown fed up.

This summer only actions can start to repair the damage done to the relationship between the supporters and owners, words are no longer enough.

West Ham fans group meet with club ahead of protest march - but two key figures don't show
The Real West Ham Fans Action Group met wanted dialogue with the club ahead of the protest on March 10
BY SAM INKERSOLE
WEST HAM CORRESPONDENT
09:24, 20 FEB 2018

The driving forces behind the planned protest march ahead of West Ham's Premier League game against Burnley on March 10 got their wish of talking to the club - but two key men didn't show up from the Hammers.

The Real West Ham Fans Action Group - one of 44 groups who are hoping to protest next month - asked for dialogue with the club over their vision for the future and their concerns and did meet with Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady.

However, co-chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold did not attend the meeting, leaving more questions than answers.

The action group insist that despite meeting with Brady, who has come under fire ever since the club moved from Upton Park to the London Stadium in the summer of 2016, the march is still going ahead.

Real West Ham Fans Action Group
@realwesthamfans
Real West Ham Fans Action Group has been set up to get OUR West Ham United back!

Following today’s meeting which David Gold and David Sullivan failed to attend, we put various points across to Karren Brady. We are awaiting the clubs response. However we feel as group committees we must still march as planned on the 10th March.
7:33 PM - Feb 19, 2018

The action group took to Twitter to update supporters of the meeting with Brady and how it all went. They said: "Following today’s [Tuesday's] meeting which David Gold and David Sullivan failed to attend, we put various points across to Karren Brady.

"We are awaiting the clubs response. However we feel as group committees we must still march as planned on the 10th March."

Last week, RWHFAG revealed the route the protest march will take before the Burnley game.

Supporters will meet in Stratford park next to Stratford police station and start there. Turning right out of the park and walking down towards the Stratford Centre (which is not the Westfield behemoth, the smaller one by the bus station) and left down the High Street, past the DLR Station.

Turning left from there, the march will head down Warton Road, turn left once again and will end on the green patch of parkland which is adjacent to the players car park, which is between Gates D and C of the London Stadium.

Re: Season ticket boycott 18/19

STH for best part of 20 odd years and enough is enough for me. Old man wanted to pack it in last year and I convinced him to give it one more year. No changes have been made, the whole experience is depressing, I find myself constantly looking at the scoreboard hoping it be HT/FT, and that is whether winning, drawing or losing. Never been about the result for me, been about the atmosphere, having a day out, beer with mates/old man. Unfortunately taking out the match day atmosphere has completely destroyed the experience for me.

I categorically will not be renewing this season. Have discussed with the old man and agree the money would be better spent doing a few European away days, whether folloiwng England or experiencing some famous rivalries, Lazio v Roma etc. Very excited by the prospect and so long as we're in that stadium under the crippling GSB regime I won't be in any way persuaded to getting a ST. Will try and go to aways where I can, and will always support the team, but just can't stomach the Stratford experience anymore. Fair play to those that can, just not for me.

Bring on 10th March, let's make our voices heard against GSB, drastic drastic change is needed. Whether it can be achieved is one thing, but I am certain the real West Ham support won't put up for this for much longer without a fight. The march is only the start

I bought a season ticket next to my dads as soon as I finished Uni and was back in essex/london so managed to see the last season at The Boleyn, and then the last two. Hated Stratford, but thought I'd give last season to see if it grew on me; old man didn't feel the same way and called it a day last year.

I massively regret renewing this year and cannot stomach giving them any more money in the face of blatant disrespect and lies. I will not be renewing for 18/19. I'm up to 11 pp so can make do with aways from September onwards.

Unfortunately I think many of us non-renewing just means we will get more tourists and cheap seats being filled.

I've never set foot in the bowl and never will.

They haven't had a penny out of me through Sky (cancelled sports package), merchandise or anything else. Although do occasionally watch round my old man's if I'm around.

The only way they'll understand.

Looking at those pics of the Boleyn the other day is absolutely heartbreaking and these ***** don't give a ****. When I look back at how long I had my ST before we moved and how big a part of my life it was, it is pretty hard to take.

Hope something nasty happens to them, I really do

Too many week day games that clash with work this season, so I'd imagine the same for next season. I probably would be able to overlook that if it wasn't for all the other ****. My dad and brother also not renewing. I'm not boycotting, I've just had enough. I'm drained, finished, done. And FFS it's only football. It shouldn't make me feel like this constantly.

Moved my ST’s last season from East Stand to TBL, been once at home this season and that was enough.

I make no bones about it, the only reason I’ll renew is to do the aways, Pure and simple. If I never set foot inside that stadium again it wouldn’t bother me nor would I feel as if I’m missing out. I still get my fix every other week in proper grounds. I have an internet subscription which allows me to watch all the games so at least I get to see the home ones.

Next season there will be fewer renewals though I’m sure it will mitigated by countless freebies dished out.

Hats off to all those planning not to renew – make no mistake it will have an effect, maybe not financially as PL gate receipts are a drop in the ocean against turnover. The increasing patches of white seats will have an impact though, underpinning the feeling of discontent against the regime.

Modern football is rubbish, I love the game but despise everything it stands for these days. There’s not much good about the sport sadly. Full of greed, cheats, despicable characters, parasites, hypocrites and leaches. The stadium stinks of it,

I also believe West Ham is terminally ill, appreciate there is no going back to the Boleyn but with the current configuration being totally unsuitable for football, we’re only heading in one direction.

If another 5k don’t renew, that means we have lost 10k in 2 seasons. What worries me is the calibre of fan, many would have been long-term ST’s and not those who wanted one in the new ground with the lure of next level riches. Once we lose those who were attendees at the old girl, their like is difficult to replace.

Very sad state of affairs, even if this was happening at Millwall, Spurs or Chelsea I would be condemning it. A real choker …. More reason to march, as one on the 10th.

It seems to me that most West Ham fans' biggest gripe is losing Upton Park....the spiritual home, the culture, community etc...So where were the protests and marches back then to save all of that, along with Upton Park? Not a peep.. It will never be the same and you all rolled over and let the board lure you into believing that West Ham would compete with the top 6. Even if you were, look at all you've lost.

Re: Someone save our Football Club.
Gold’s persistent antagonistic tweeting is baffling and unhelpful

West Ham co-owner once again shows he does not have the knack for proper Twitter use

By Jonathan Lines Feb 18, 2018, 8:00am EST

Even when we don’t have a fixture it seems to be a tough ask for West Ham to stay out of trouble. This week David Gold has been spending his evenings on Twitter and, bafflingly, kicked the hornets nest of disgruntlement of fans towards the board.

It comes after an official statement on Thursday that the board is ready to “begin constructive dialogue” with supporter groups preparing a protest march against Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady, citing perceived lies and inaction from the current leadership. Hopefully the owners are finally ready to engage, listen and learn.

I know I shouldn’t be getting riled about a few tweets, but Gold is the co-owner and co-chairman of the football club I support. If he’s using it at all, he should be using it to engage with the fans on a serious and meaningful level, acknowledging the positive but also listening to and dealing with the negative. But all Gold seems interested in, as this Thursday was just another reminder of, is spam-retweeting praise and regurgitating stock counter-arguments about debt reduction and season ticket waiting lists to any fan who raises a genuine concern. It is not helpful.

Gold’s tweets, as they have done on numerous occasions in the past, show a spectacular and perplexing misunderstanding of the way fans feel about a number of issues at the club, centring around Sullivan’s maniacally disorganised transfer policy, supporter disenfranchisement and, above all, the stadium. Any mention of the move he move to the Olympic Stadium stirs up a wave of ill-feeling, and turn even the most sedate of characters into Howard Beale in Network in an instant. It is surely a no-go area for a board wanting to stay on its supporters’ good side. Why is he still stoking the fire when the board is apparently aware of the level of unrest? Worse still, for someone who always boasts about how connected he is with the club, why does Gold not get it?

But here we are, with Mr. Gold retweeting practically every board-friendly reply (some seem genuine, others sycophantic and attention-seeking in the extreme). It’s as though Gold genuinely believes some Twitter replies validate the decisions the board has taken over the last decade and last couple of years specifically.

“It’s not the board’s fault the fans aren’t getting behind it”, read one of Gold’s retweets. “More accessible than Wembley, Emirates, White Hart Lane, Stamford Bridge...” said another. His timeline is a sheer propaganda machine.

Then there were the ones that Gold tweeted himself. “The manager has the final say on player recruitment”, read one – the archetypal West Ham copy-paste job every time our appalling transfer policy is questioned. Not our fault, nothing to see here.

Then in response to one fan complaining that the majority didn’t want the move, the response was delivered from page one of the Gold, Sullivan and Brady stadium party-line manual. Yep, the waiting list:

David GoldVerified account

David Gold Chairman of West Ham United FC, Ann Summers and Knickerbox
Mr West Ham you don’t KNOW that the majority of West Ham fans didn’t want to leave Upton Park you are guessing. However we do have 50,000 loyal season ticket holders and circa 50,000 fans on the waiting list. FACT. dg https://twitter.com/mrwestham64/status/964193074405625856 …
6:52 PM - Feb 15, 2018

These are the most irritating of all the board’s arguments. And unfortunately Gold reverts to the same slimy, evasive politician’s answers time and time again. Brady is the same. There’s no attempt at all to listen and engage, rather just deliver his own stock counter-argument. Why do we rarely seem to land our primary transfer targets? 50,000 on the waiting list. Why didn’t the board capitalise on the success of 2015/16 and improve the squad that summer? Waiting list. Why do we have the 13th highest wage bill in Europe and nowhere near the squad to match? 50,000 – remember?

Here, we have fans with genuine concerns, genuine grievances and questions and we’re met with Tony Blair and David Cameron at Prime Minister’s Questions. No attempts to listen, no attempts to engage with the real issue. Just “it was better than the last government” and “we’re making the tough decisions to do what we think is right”. We are completely shut out. The waiting list reference almost even reads as a veiled “if you don’t like it, someone else will take your spot” counter, which is both imprudent in its arrogance and no way to treat a supporter.

This is why it would probably be wise for Gold to get off Twitter. As co-chairman, he should be using it to learn, to listen to fans and to try and make the club better, to attempt to explain and justify the actions they take. But when fans attempt to scrutinise the board’s record – why a team with our resources seems incapable of competing above a relegation battle; why we enter every transfer window with no purpose or plan; why our academy fails to produce; why many of the stadium promises haven’t been delivered – Gold is incapable of producing meaningful dialogue. If he’s just going to wind up fans with ill-judged, propaganda, he’s better off deleting his account.

Here’s a big issue though. Absurdly, Gold’s naive antagonism is actually just about the most useful club discourse we get. This is because disenfranchised fans have no other way of engaging with their club or holding it to account. Admittedly this is an issue for top-tier English football in general, rather than just us. And it would still sit better with me supporting a team owned by Gold and Sullivan than a sheikh from an Emirate using ownership of my club as nothing more than a public vehicle to legitimise their investment in terrorism and their regime’s awful record on human rights. But that’s another story.

This shouldn’t be the case, especially when Gold even goes as far as (surely inadvertently) offending large groups with some of his activity. “The only thing wrong with this is you clowns who work in McDonald’s and think you know better”, read another of Gold’s retweets. Is he agreeing with the writer’s opinion here? Is that what Gold thinks of fans who don’t agree with him?

As an aside, contempt for ordinary supporters is not something new to the current board. Fans are regularly patronised, which is even more laughable when you consider it’s the board who spend most of the time appearing as though they haven’t a clue what they’re doing. There was the BBC interview in 2016 shortly before our first game in the Olympic stadium. Lady Brady was asked by Trevor Sinclair about the importance of retaining the working class identity of West Ham into the new ground and replied “this stadium offers us a different kind of future”.

All this being said, I do feel a bit sorry for Gold on Twitter, primarily because he’s the only one of the three chairs available to even attempt to defend their actions. Sullivan, perhaps wisely, is not on Twitter (although that would probably be a lot of fun for the neutral) and Brady uses it mostly for self-publicity, though she is better at answering questions when she does tweet about football. The two kids at least have learned their lessons – Dave Jnr. seems to have disabled his account, while Jack, wisely, saves most of his activity for the women’s team in his ‘new role’. It doesn’t exactly forgive their prior misuses though, and we shouldn’t forget the way they routinely slagged off Allardyce and Nolan. But it is a lesson to Mr. Gold that it is probably wise to shut up for a bit unless you have something meaningful to say.

Let’s hope the board are genuinely ready to listen and learn. Anyway, it would be a shame to see Gold go. He can be a comedy genius. Gold may not have found the right way of discussing club matters with the fans, but when he stays away from West Ham he is still well-worth a follow, not least for his daylight savings rants. I’ll leave you with some of my favourite Gold tweets:

I may have imagined it, but I'm pretty sure I read on here that someone who either got the figures from a document or may have used Google Maps overlays said the nearest seat to the pitch (or centre spot) in the upper tier at the OS is further away than the furthest seat (West Upper top corner) at the old ground.

Is this true or am I hallucinating?

You're not hallucinating. The Boleyn ground would fit inside the upper tier. But if you lined up the pitches, then the back row of the Boleyn West Stand would be in line with somewhere on the OS West Upper, but with many more rows behind it.

David Gold embroiled in new Twitter row
Posted by Sean Whetstone on February 16, 2018 in News, Whispers

A West Ham fan who recently watched the documentary film Iron Men messaged Hammers Chairman David Gold on Twitter to say: “Watching this now just makes me even more angry, you told a dream to convince us that it was the right move because you knew that otherwise, people would have been more passionate to stop the move, I never wanted the move and I know the majority didn’t, reply please!”

Gold took the bait and replied “Mr West Ham you don’t KNOW that the majority of West Ham fans didn’t want to leave Upton Park you are guessing. However, we do have 50,000 loyal season ticket holders and circa 50,000 fans on the waiting list. FACT. dg”

“I personally hated the thought of moving, but I embraced it, because I believed it was the right thing to do in the long-term best interest of the club. dg”

Supporter Martin Pedrick later joined the social media conversation saying: “The key in all of this debate is are we making progress & for me the answer is no. We still have too many issues with the ground. From our lofty position of finishing 7th, we are going backwards, partly due to the manager at the time but also the board with poor signings”
Gold replied: “The manager has the final say on player recruitment. dg”

You would think an 80 year old man had a bit more common sense.. Got no sympathy for him or Sullivan its all there own doing…I liked them and was on board with what they said but like so many others I’ve had enough of there ineptitude to run a football club .. I think with the deal they got with the stadium has made them greedy in a way and that’s why the club has suffered.. They like west ham but they like money more ..

What, so lying about retractable seating doesn’t matter because it wouldn’t make any difference anyway? What a heap of ****. Gold is on video lying about the fact that we wouldn’t move unless the seats were as close as UP. He’s either as thick as **** or lying.

Sullivan lying about being a fan when he actually isn’t; go to 4,58

Maybe that doesn’t matter either? Jesus, wake up

I am amazed at those defending Gold and Sullivan. Yes this is a long term project but there is not one thing I can see that is currently aligned to achieving that long term vision we were sold and that is even before we get in to the player investment side of things where we’ve have been incredibly poor on the whole, and that can be laid very much at Sullivan’s door.

If the manager has the final say on all transfers then the most important job you have to do is appoint a world class manager who can take us to the next level. From Birmingham to West Ham all your managers have been awful, no exceptions, if your not going to sell up at least appoint a managing director that can run our club and appoint the right manager for West Ham!

In light of this invitation, the first question to ask before agreeing to it should be why they didn’t want to meet earlier and what has changed their minds for them to want to meet now (for the sake of the club & unity blah, blah.. will not suffice)? I think we all know the answer, but it would be interesting to hear what BS they would spout as the reason behind it

Cant see what everyones problem is.
Personally i think the club is run excellent and they saved our bacon.
Anyone going on that march needs to get a life.
Getting rid of our chairman would be stupid.

There's a big chance they've hired in a union busting strategist. It's a common tactic to call a rush meeting, take it or leave it style approach.

If I was on the RWHFAG committee, I'd break down our grievances in to different topics.

Stadium - Stewarding. - bring the match day security back to the club including the safety officer
Access - disabled, security searches
Decoration - go back to QEOP and demand the surrounding areas are made to feel more like
home with provision of the old Green Street vendors to be invited over.

Board - Brady - removed from post due to compete migration failure and their 10 point plan.
Sullivan/Gold -
To cut interest on any loans to BofE base rate.
To step down completely from all duties from the sports side of the business, employ a
director of football or chief exec that has total control of all player scouting, transfer
negotiation and contract renewals.
Remove all senior board members (and their sons) from social media and club matters.
Actively stop all leaks from deep inside the dressing room/board room to social media.

Playing staff - Either offer Moyes a contract, with a decent transfer kitty for summer 18 or start the
recruitment process now.

Finally, put the club up for sale and **** off But we still march and will continue to protest until we see fit.

I just posted this on RWHFAG Facebook page (awaiting approval)

Just my thoughts (and I do think if we said no to the meeting it would play in to their hands.

a respectful message to those that attend the meeting.
Gold, Sullivan and Brady should all attend. A prerequisite should be at least 2 of them must be there.
No NDA's

They will no doubt ask what we want. I know we gave them 5 requirements before and we need to be hard with them please.

For me and not in any order...
1/ The stadium is not fit for football, what will they do to change it (significantly) Saying they can't do anything because we don't own the stadium is not an acceptable answer.

2/ A commitment to remove the London from the badge...we're United not London.

3/ Brady to stop her Sun column asap - This cost us a player in the recently closed window. (see point 7)

4/ To stop embarrassing the club by publicly slating players, I.E. Snodgrass and Fonte.

5/ To stop trying to show us fans in a bad light I.E. Sullivan, Wigan, car park and Jim White as a mouthpiece.

6/ I think we all know there is no cash at the club and this is why we can only get loans or players on installments. Where has the money gone? Stop taking interest any more on the loans, you have made enough money from your businesses and West Ham. Put money in. If you can't then sell up.

7/ You have made West Ham a laughing stock in the football world...apologies are required and bridges need rebuilding.

8/ To ensure the elderly and disabled are looked after with respect of getting to and from the stadium.

9/ Assist our fans in particular those traveling to away games to be able to get home from night games where the trains have stopped running before the game ends.

10/ Freeze season ticket prices and lower the ridiculous match day prices...you promised affordable football.

11/ Away fans in colours are frequently see in home stands..this HAS to stop.

12/ Stewarding, searching etc. Still unacceptable despite it being one of the early days major issues.

13/ We don't trust you...you have lied. Tell the truth or leave.

There is a big dose of deja vu here from when WHUISA was set up.

Frankly, if it has taken the threat of thousands of marchers to get them to do something as simple as be honest then it only serves to highlight the points against them to begin with.

They should be told, in no uncertain terms and to their face, that there will be no rest until they're gone. That should be the only purpose of the meeting.

Talk of badge changes and various other stuff, some of which is not even under their control (stadium staffing), only serves to give them wriggle room.

The past is done, the future is the focus and that future has to be minus the three at the top. Talks can't be considered "constructive" until such a time as that is first and last on the agenda.

Meeting is the right thing to do.

From the boards point of view, they may think they're sharp operators and that they can derail this momentum by calling this meeting and making promises they've no intention of keeping. That would be a mistake.

Their problem now, is that their character and competence has been called into question ( and with good reason ). Lie again, deceive again, bull**** again and it'll be called out. And their difficult situation will turn even more toxic than it is now.

Take away the emotion of it being West ham, and thinking from a business point of view..............No one would agree to meet people who are openly hostile to their business goals unless they thought they could get something out of it. So you're left with some variations.

1. They think they can patronise and bull**** and it'll all be ok
2. They are seriously rattled by this.
3. They really have tried their best and need to explain where its gone wrong ( yeah i know )

I personally think its 2. What needs looking at is WHY. they ordinarily wouldnt give a toss lets be honest, yet now they do. Maybe those accounts will yield more horror, maybe there is an interested party in regards to buying them out, whatever it is it marks a change in direction and focus. Suddenly fans are important to "brand West ham"

There is only 1 out of GSB that could actually just go, and thats the employee who worries about her "business woman of the year" brand. Her brand is getting tarnished big time, she's been mentioned as a reason another club wouldn't do business with us. She is their weakest link and her credibility is right down there with Sullivans kids

Unlike faceless Arabs/Amercians/Russians Mr Sullivan is local, his life is here, a hostile fan base with long memories really wont be a good thing for him. He and his family lapped it up 2 years back, but the champagne is about to sour. It really isn't in his interests for this to get any more hostile between him and a fan base who aren't known to forgive and forget. Think back to Alan Sugar at Spurs , i remember the protests outside his house, he got out soon after.

As for the meeting? RWHFAG will go in there owning the moral high ground, it would be unbelievable for them to leave without it.

1. If the board insist on NDA's or no recording, they can walk out.
2. If the board don't bother to show, they can walk out.
3. If the board are obviously not taking them seriously, they can walk out.
4. If the board are obviously talking bollox, they can walk out.

Any of the above and our lot walk away with the moral high ground intact, the ball is firmly in the boards court.

RWHFAG have made the correct demands and pushed them exactly the right amount IMO......

West Ham fans angry about how their club is run challenge David Gold to speak at protest march

Supporters annoyed over issues including a disappointing January window and last year's stadium move plan March 10 demo
BY ADRIAN KAJUMBAFOOTBALL REPORTER
• 22:30, 15 FEB 2018

West Ham co-chairman David Gold has been urged to face fuming fans at a pre-game protest march next month.

Unhappy Hammers supporters have arranged a rally in Stratford, near the London Stadium, prior to the March 10 visit of Burnley.

They are upset with the way the club has been run — with a disappointing January transfer window intensified the anger — and are now demanding answers.

A spokesman for the Real West Ham Fans’ Action Group said: “Ten years ago, we owned our own stadium and everyone loved it.

Ten years on, our home has been knocked down and we play in an athletics stadium that a lot of fans hate.

“Progress at its finest.

“The fans want truthful, honest answers. This is our open invite for you to come and speak to the fans — come and be a speaker at our march and tell the fans the truth.

“It might surprise some people, but we actually just want what the board have promised us — a successful football club.

“For us as West Ham supporters, it is about playing good football, feeling comfortable where we are and enjoying ourselves in a family atmosphere.”

West Ham board to meet with action group
Posted by Sean Whetstone on February 16, 2018 in News, Whispers

West Ham have released an official statement to confirm they plan to meet with the action group on Monday.

The club published a statement on WHUFC.com to say “West Ham United can today confirm the Club has reached out to the supporter groups represented within the West Ham Groups United to meet to begin constructive dialogue with the Club.

Vice Chairman Karren Brady has today written to the West Ham Groups United confirming: “My Chairmen David Sullivan and David Gold have always been clear that, as a Board, we are only the Custodians of the Club on behalf of our supporters. We fully understand that our supporters are the lifeblood of the Club.

“We believe the groups that have come together have nothing but the best interests of the Club and its long-term future in mind. We understand they are seeking only constructive dialogue with the Club to engender unity. Their intention is only to bring positive suggestions to us as a Board that will help over time to improve the Club and the supporters’ matchday experience. David Sullivan, David Gold and I want to work with the supporters to make West Ham United one of the most successful clubs in the country and we know and understand that this only happens with collaboration and listening to our supporters.

“To this end, I can confirm we have requested a meeting to take place with representatives of the groups at the earliest opportunity.We hope that this will demonstrate how serious we are about listening and answering their issues. Uniting the Club is our primary focus as a Board.

“I hope the meeting will help us to more fully understand the agenda that we all need to work to together and that following the meeting we can aim for ongoing constructive dialogue to deliver a better experience for our supporters.”

The Real West Ham Fans Action Group posted their own statement on Twitter saying:

“We have received this from the club this afternoon asking for a meeting next week. We will attend the meeting as we feel it is our responsibility to get into dialogue with the club we will attend with other groups as part of the West Ham Groups United. Far as we’re concerned we’re Marching on March 10th, but we feel it’s important to meet the Board as at some point we need to sit around the table. This is a strange one, if we don’t meet people will say we are destructive to our team. If we meet some will say we have sold out. Let’s put it straight we’ve chosen to meet the club listen to them and hopefully get them to understand why we are Marching. The meet is on Monday, time to be confirmed we will update you and we will let you know what was said at the meeting. thanks for your support.”

Doesn’t Brady understand she’s part of the problem? I wonder how seriously she’ll take it if asked to resign? Yep thought not.

paulcolborne February 16, 2018 at 10:45 am
The club has asked to meet because they realise the scale of this march and how it will embarrass them. Also if they make promises and the march is cancelled the organisers of the march will struggle to gain these numbers again.-Hundreds have booked rail and air tickets from all over the UK and all over the world and made the neccessary arrangements to attend. The club have caused this situation by refusing to listen to the supporters.I think the fans groups have to meet the club but when doing so point out that the march will be going ahead. If the club comes up with positive actions then any further marches and actions will be suspended.

It's clear there is no trust between the so called Board and the supporters.

There is more than ample evidence that they have made serious error after serious error, shown scant regard for the views of supporters and done what they believed to be right .

Comically - at least if it wasn't so serious - almost everything they believe to be right is at odds with supporters views .

The badge, the media activities, the attempt at not honouring the 20% discount, the relocation under clearly false assumptions , a dodgy survey, a dreadful deal being struck with the LLDC and LS185, the almost complete loss of any control of the "matchday experience" .

Asking our supporters to pay nigh on £7 for a hot dog on a stall outside the ground , I mean, seriously , have they any idea at all about our supporters and where most are from ?

We're not Arsenal, and however much BKB wishes we were, we're not .

However, having done that dreadful deal, having broken the bond of trust we need to ask what they , as owners, are bringing to the party to move the club forward .

Seriously , what are they bringing to the party ?

More loans ? A self funding business model in which they intend to reap the reward of a huge capital gain when they sell but leave behind a club with insufficient capital in it to fund a competitive position ?

The club is in need of hundreds of millions of pounds of investment and quite simply these owners, even if they have it, won't spend it .

There really isn't any point to them hanging around, they can bring nothing to us , do nothing for us .

Their entire business plan hinges on finding a greater fool to give them hundreds of millions for their shares , meaning that whoever buys the club will have less to spend on players and club infrastructure.

These owners do not and never have had the best interests of WHU at heart , they need to be run out of town.

Why will David Sullivan not invest any of his money in a club he claimed he turned down a £650m bid for ?

Why will he not invest in the club, rather than make money off the back of it ?

We as supporters invest all we have in the club, emotional capital as well as , in many cases, every spare nicker we have on tickets and all the tat they flog .

We put the money in, the Directors take the money out.

Time for change. Board out.
