Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
Reading that blog (bloody good it was too) I have to say what jumps out at me was the bit about them trying to shut up Mike Walker.

If Karen Brady is worried about WHUISA doing their fact checking, could it be they were getting to close to something and what has that got to do with RWHFAG, surely they would welcome any proof of mis-management by the club,after all they want what's best for our club, but instead they threaten them.

It just doesn't make sense unless RWHFAG are now Brady's pit bulls.

The H-List piece, his best (sadly, least amusing) one yet.

Fantastic piece of writing and should be shared and read by anyone that still remotely cares about this pox ridden mess of a club.

Shame on the (R)WHFAG, fucking shame on you.

I've decided not to renew next season. I've got a baby on the way in June, which has partly affected my decision. But it's mainly the stadium and matchday experience. I don't enjoy either.

If we were still at UP, I wouldn't go as much due to the change in family life but I'd still renew, keep my seat and make more of an effort to pop along when I could.

I absolutely cannot be fucked to do that with our rented accommodation though. 'Next level' my hairy ringpiece.

What camp are you in muskie, just so that we know, as you haven't really been very clear on that so far?

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
You can now categorise whu fans into 2 groups, those that lick swallows arse and those that don't.

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
pervy, and there in lies the problem. From what i understand they didn't convince the group that met them we shouldn't march just some of them.

Every West ham fan should read that piece, it should give them a good idea why politics has no fucking place in football, the worst thing I found was the way some started taking side's when Antifa was mentioned Yes they should not be at a West ham march but all the lets get the Lefties bollocks went too far as I said it was a minority but a minority who created a situation that need not have been there although the piece is about much more than just that.

When talking about those who were against the move in that piece he wrote so brilliantly, he said this.

' I believed them to be dinosaurs unable to see obvious progress when it stared them straight in the face. To you I apologise'.

I liked that.

Must be a crisis if you're back on here!

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
Would like to have been a fly on the wall for the meeting. It should have been recorded so we all knew what was said, agreed, suggested etc...

If you feel that strongly about something that you've gone to the effort to mobilise thousands of people to march together then there has to be a damn good reason why, having met the board, that you walk away happy that your concerns have been/will be addressed.

Seems like this lot in charge have a firm grip on us and won't let go until they can walk away with as much money as possible. If they were WH fans and ran the club as such then they would hold a Q&A session with a select number of fans and make some outright promises.

Problem is, it seems to have even gone too far for that now and no one believes a word they say. Which is why it's difficult to understand what they could have possibly said to convince that group that met them, that there was no need for a demonstration

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
I reckon you could still mobilise the support, but you'd have to do it without it being under any banner.

No organisation at the heart of it, use the existing organisations to drum up support.

Keep the message simple - If you're unhappy with the way things are, have gone and are going then turn up to make your point.

If you get the numbers, things will take shape.

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
whu, you're right it is hard to mobilise the fans. I think the most we got together for a brown out protest was about 4-5,000 and that was without calling any of the fans left wing scum and threatening to kick their heads in if they dared to march.

whu 1:12 Wed Mar 7
Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
decent summary sand and you will never ever get those potential numbers again, i agree

it is hard work, as we found out previously with brown out

i just hope the group continue with dialogue at board level and we see real change

hope there is a 'long game' mentality here and we at some stage look back and view things in a more positive light

they worked very hard, that cannot be denied

fingers crossed

I agree, I've only been to the LS a few times but agree about the stadium. My sons go much more but they are also fed up with the lack of investment. I'm not sure most would just not turn up anymore, but if I was a season ticket holder I would definitely be prepared to not turn up at least when there is a LIVE game for everyone to see there is a problem and get the message out as a start.

"West Ham is run as it currently is, the soulless husk of a football club that is currently traipsing around the country"

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow

I think the only way is to stay out of the ground. Don't go, don't buy tickets, don't take your seat if you are a ST holder.

It might not hit them that hard in the pocket, but nothing shows more disdain for the way the club is and is headed more than people not attending matches.

If you love the club and hate the way it is right now, the best form of protest long term is empty seats.

Re: I just spoke to Andy Swallow
The biggest mistake was meeting the board before the march.. Soon as they agreed to that meet then the board knew they'd won.

It was painfully obvious that all the hard work they'd put in, creating the unity they did in bringing thousands of fans together would all be in vain if they attended that meet..

I left a post on fb explaining the likely outcome if they went along with the meet & swallow replied 'if we don't meet the board now we might not get another chance again'... That would never of happened, they should of marched when they had the numbers & everyone onside, the board would have seen thousands of pissed off West Ham & knew they had serious problems on there hands..

Then the group should of said, right we'll talk now, if you don't then we'll march again & again untill you listen & act.. Even if the board didn't sit down with the group what difference would it have made to what eventually would have got or not got done?

The group by agreeing to that meet & calling the march off for whatever reason (I still can't work it out??) have now lost a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring that many fans together in a show of strength.. And when the board inevitably fail to deliver on most of their lip service promises, what wil be the groups next move then? Because one things for certain the thousands they had onside last week, won't be taking too much notice of any future action.
