BBC film, West Ham fan scraps season ticket to support 3rd tier club.
C&H
BBC has made a short film about a former West Ham season ticket called Justin who now makes for regular trips to Arezzo in Italy, where he’s been embraced by fans of the third-division Italian club and has re-found his love of the game he claims.

Justin explains “I can never change my colours, I can never change my team, I am West Ham fan, with that being said I would rather spend my money going over to Italy watching third division Italian football with people who share the same mentality about what support should be”

“In 2016 my football club West Ham United moved to the London Olympic Stadium, I was heartbroken leaving a whole community behind at Upton Park the former ground now plays host to a bunch of posh flats. The first season at the new stadium, I started to feel a change, I started to feel more like a customer, more like a consumer and less like a fan. People were more concerned about having a chat and talk about the Wi-Fi, talk about what they are up to over the weekend. I was worried about my style of support, the traditional way of following your team had died there. I describe myself as an ultra-traditional football fan, vocal, impassioned and desire to create an atmosphere, it’s tribalism, being part of something, being part of the movement, being with your peoples ”

Fair play to him, didn't Ike what happened over there and done something about it. You cunts on here slagging him off couldn't even sort out a fucking march cause you shit yourselves.

Non-League football gives me the same buzz as old football before the Premier League.

I really enjoy it without feeling the need to make a cheap programme on a digital camera and waving my claret and blue bell end at the commissioning editor of BBC3

Sorry but I don't think it's wrong to treat West Ham as a catch up with mates, surely that's what allot of people do? I go with a mate I don't see all the time, always good to catch up. Met some people in the seats around me too and enjoy catching up before and after the game.

Is that wrong?"

Nothing wrong with catching up with mates. Doing it for 90 mins and talking blatant shit all the way through the game is a different matter. People behind me drive me round the fucking bend, with their constant half cut hipster drivel. Burnley game the idiot missed two of the goals as he was reading his phone...

Just watched this. All it is, is

"Ooh, look at me ! So discerning! Cosmopolitan! Bit edgy, me."

If soccerball virtue signalling could be a thing, its ringleader would be silly Justin. Still, up to him.

Justin? If his parents named him that I expect he would find it difficult satisfying a bird, enough to make you go off on an annul bumming holiday to Italy.

If you choose to stop supporting West Ham and switch to another team, you weren’t proper West Ham in the first place. Good riddance to someone who seems to think of his football team as a hipster fashion accessory. I bet he eats in the cereal cafe in Brick Lane.

Re: BBC film, West Ham fan scraps season ticket to support 3rd tier club.
I am going to make a guess about Justin which is that he is a product of the EPL football era and as such has no concept of the old days as I and many who post on here experienced.

That said, to each his own, and fair play to him.
