The stadium is awful..........

The staff , the atmosphere, the whole damm thing is shocking. From the scaffold stands and the Mickey Mouse trampolines.

Why oh why not have a section for the more vocal support at least it provides half a chance of an atmosphere. Have a kids section also if need be. Give the fans a chance to support the team but I think the plan was to dilute the hard core support from the off. Divide and conquer style.

It’s just not Upton Park and of I’m honest they could give the tickets away and provide free beer and I still wouldn’t enjoy the fucking sterile Piss pot of a stadium. Rip the flats down at Upton Park. I want to come home now please I don’t like it here.

Went to my first away game for years, up at Goodison and I'd forgotten that amazing feeling to be surrounded by West Ham fans singing our heads off throughout the match.

Never witnessed that at the LS

The football is fine. It’s just the whole experience. It’s flaccid. It’s like a Brexiter having sex. Its like an afternoon at a “mall”. Just fucking duller than watching grass grow. The grunge of Upton Park is what made it remotely enjoyable. Now it’s just an identikit corporate cash extraction exercise for pen pushers.

Re: Yes again
Yep it's what the PL has turned the game into, that's the cunt, the stadium is just an example of how they want it to be. A bucket list wankfest for nomarks from nomark places to suddenly think where they live is the bollocks because their local team is in the PL.

MOTD these days there will be 1 or 2 games that are worth watching the rest is meh............but they'll tell you it's the most exciting thing ever as it's now purely a marketing project.

Re: Yes again
The shithole is for the new fans and the kids growing up not knowing any better. Anyone that went to Upton Park regularly will not accept it as a home ground.

I hate the new stadium with a passion and its sterile surroundings. But I also hate everything about the Premier League. Overpaid and overhyped players cheating, time wasting abd doing anything to win. Pundits telling you how great it all is and the authorities implementing abominations like VAR.

If someone told me 30 years ago that I would get bored of top level football and going to West Ham then I wouldn't have believed it but I am close to knocking it on the head now.

Only reason I keep going now is to see mates and be able to take my boy home and away, especially away.

Had a great day up at Everton the other week, had to force myself to go on Saturday.

Re: Yes again
Modern Premier league footy is shit. It’s a corporate globalist shit storm of ridiculously overpaid premadonnas, boring cunt fans and sterile spoon fed stadium shit atmos.

Everything about a corporate stadium experience is shit TOWIE cuntfestery.

Re: Yes again

I agree with that but I think it's the way it was going anyway. It has been on a downward trend for years mainly because we are all getting older and the thing that made West Ham so important to most of us, poverty, shared identity and a lack of anything else to look forward to just doesnt apply to the under 35s. As for teenagers today, they've got loads of options, no particular attachment to the area and have an overabundance of material goods.

Oh, and if you want fans to hang around afterwards and have a beer, put some fucking heating in the gaff.

Re: Yes again

Further to that I think the place is ageing very badly and looking very tatty for something fairly new, by stadiums standards.

Re: Yes again
might be in a minority here but actually think it's getting worse.

it was briefly tolerable when we went on a run when the sun was out. good results and a bit of sunshine will put most west ham supporters in a half decent mood, even if we'd relocated to the moon. was never particually exciting though, more like halfway between the boleyn and watching a tennis match.

but other than that, around 113 way at least, it feels like we get less and less up for things. the so called tevez derby was as flat as it's been. still think the two best atmospheres that the place ever had were in the first season (chelsea in the cup and spurs).

Re: Yes again
Top football has been growing away inexorably from its original demographic for years.

If for some people what matters now is meeting mates and having a drink there is always non or lower league football available. Loads of people follow a lower team where they drink etc and still have a favourite top club that they support from a distance.

Re: Yes again
I sit in block 132 which i think is one of the better blocks of the stadium

When we're winning its decent. When we're shit then the stadium becomes shit. The carpet helps, its still not a football ground but when we're winning its far more bearable.

Football with VAR this season seems to of taken a hit, football just seems shit now.....so that multiplied by us being shit at the moment multiplied by the OS and you end up with threads like these.....

The fans are still West Ham though.

The "proper" West Ham over there are diluted and few and far between.

Apart from the ones who get free tickets and wear man utd tops under their coats, of course.

Re: Yes again
I don't buy all that 'your not West Ham anymore...' bollox, first sung to us by Chelsea, who'd know all about selling out. It's a cheap shot, sung by every wanky team now.

It's bang on, nothing about the stadium or area is remotely West Ham for me, in fact it's the total opposite.
