“they seem almost content for us to prod around”

Exactly this

I don’t think they are bothered and the statements they’ve been putting out are just a PR exercise rather than any sort of fear over a march. If they were seriously worried they wouldn’t be mugging off meeting the group, at least not deliberately

Every chance there's a slice of truth in that, CHL.

that account valuation would have reflected more than merely the value of the land though. more knowledgeable people but be able to comment on other factors, besides fixtures and fittings etc.

The Boleyn was valued in West Ham accounts at 71.2m sold to Galliard for £38m (2nd highest bidder was £32m) Galliard sold on to Barratts soon after registered at Land Registry 2016 for £40m.

There is a large descrepancy between the valuation and the sold price. Perhaps the valuation was inflated to facilitate gearing requirements? Sullivan commented at the time that market forces dictated the sale price.

I reckon they are at each others throats in the background.

I reckon Sully sees most of the 'mess' associated with the move as being down to Brady, which, to be fair, it probably is.

I reckon he's picked her up by her drawers, thrown her under the bus, and said, "You dug the hole, YOU go fill it in..."

It would explain her non committal attitude on the day i.e. she didn't WANT to attend either.

Only at West Ham, eh???

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2
That's a very good idea, CHL.

Independent investigation would really drag the truth out and potentially expose them to the point of no return.

The slap in the face from both Gold & Sullivan not turning up to meeting the RWHFAG is a disgrace in itself, but fair play to Brady for having bigger balls than the Dildo twins, even if she is there to just bat people off.

Huge fuck up form the club there.

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2
If we want them out, we've got to find the true pressure points.

I'd be inclined to spend some of the cash raised to commission an independent investigation (not someone in their pockets!) of their finances, namely:

a) the club's accounts (and the interim period, up to the present, not covered by the accounts).

b) a thorough stone turning exercise re the sale of the Boleyn site, and consequently

The accounts could no doubt be dissected by a qualified somebody on here? We need to look at what's come in and what's gone out. Not easy, as there is a difference between 'profit' and 'cash flow' which can hide a multitude of demons, and the issue of amortising purchases and contracts over time etc. Someone is suggesting they are using high wages / loan deals to hide their lack of spend behind FFP..? We need to know...

The big win might come from a much closer dig around the sale of the Boleyn site. Clearly, as far as WHU was concerned, it was sold way below it's market value. Why? The suspicion is that the Daves may have done a 'deal for the club' and then 'a deal for themselves'..? Not illegal, per se, but would show them in a very bad light if so...

It was then 'sold on' to the developers for almost twice as much, barely months later. How come?
My guess is, if we can turn enough stones, we will find our owners made personal provision for themselves in there somewhere, either, some sort of return from the sell on, or even a slice of the development pie, maybe via a shell company or some such..? Barratts are building 842 units, minimum price almost £350K, so the LEAST return is around £295 Million...

They seem almost content for us to prod around on the 'current' situation, which suggests we might be missing a bigger more juicy target that might actually shoe-horn them out the door?

Just a thought... but I'm here to be shot at.

Anybody else think this has legs?

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2
A new statue too expensive? That says so much. Millions wasted on poor signings or loan deals, thousands in fines due to incompetence of club, millions saved as club don’t even have to pay for (poor) stewarding etc ... but how about the club’s legacy ? Champions Place is the only tangible sign - and club get fans to pay for that too! The joke is that even with the desire for statues all the way around the stadium - it’s not ours and we aren’t allowed ... that’s the real story.

Ex - I'm not defending them because this particularly could be better done, but it was all in storage anyway - no-one ever visited the UP museum. It closed as it was a waste of space.

It looks like she said no to just about everything that anyone asked her for going by those notes on KUMB.

A lot of things suggested by supporters groups like big flags (which let's face it, shouldn't be THAT difficult) would require the help of the LDDC and you're spending half a million in a legal fight with them. Clever, alienate your fans AND your landlord so nobody actually likes you and wish you'd just fuck off.

It's very expensive to commission a statue? Oh dear. Don't worry, here's an opportunity to nick the old one cheap so besides a tiny memorial garden and a couple of street names there's no permanent memorial to the club I visited with my mum, dad, uncles and pals that has been a huge part of my life.

Not only have we killed off loads of loyal small businesses in Upton Park, We're going to steal their statue too.

I honestly didn't think I could hate the board more but they just keep giving.

10k empty seats will bruise their ego. Means fuck all in the onion stakes in the grand scheme of things.

"Does this make anybody else think that they couldnt give a shit about losing, say, 10k fans and are confident they will easily replace them ?! "

I am in no doubt that they have thought this all along, they don't see us as fans, they see us a customers and they believe that new customers will keep buying their 'product'.

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2
The absence at the meeting of BOTH Sullivan and Gold is clearly a 2 finger salute to the groups.

Does this make anybody else think that they couldn’t give a shit about losing, say, 10k fans and are confident they will easily replace them ?!

RM 10...I agree , my seat is fine although I get soaked when it rains but so what.

I’m marching against the board and their attitude towards the fans and their utter lies from the start, we are stuck with the stadium and it will never change.I would like to see more balti pies though.

I think what the committee has done so far has been excellent and we are all In their debt for the time and effort they are putting in.

Gold ensured there was a big song and dance about him buying the oldest F.A. Cup in existence, meanwhile the club's memorabilia still lies in storage.

Says it all about this trio of egotistical charlatans.

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2
Most of us knew that meeting would just be a token appearance by one of the board misers. It's just all adding more fuel to the fire.
The sooner they're out the picture, the better.

Re: Real West Ham Fans - Updated with notes from Meeting on 10/2
Unless we were at the meeting we would not know exactly what was raised and what happened.Surely what is important is that whilst people have different priorities the common denominator is dissatisfaction with the Board.The March is to show that thousands are dissatisfied for various reasons.Why must we continually go round in circles on here.Lets all get on with supporting and getting behind the march.
