Imagine buying a PL football club like ours...
... Well I say buying.

I actually mean paying for half of it. So £42.5m on an £85m total value.

Split between two of you. So let's say £20m each.

For total control of West Ham.

Then imagine telling all the fans that you actually support the club and that you're locals and you'd do your best.

Then imagine a 'world class team for a world class stadium'.

Then imagine taking out 7% Interest on that minimal investment on a debt that is serviceable via PL money. Imagine getting that original investment of £20m back within 24 months despite employing a manager that relegates the club.

Then imagine owning a football club (or two) for 30 years. Imagine winning nothing. But profiting from the club and its fans personally.

Imagine doing something for 30 years and winning nothing. Not one single trophy.

Imagine employing Alex Mcleish, Sam Allardyce, Avram Grant and David Moyes.

Imagine having a blank canvas of a beautiful football club like West Ham for an entire decade.

Then imagine blaming every single failure, lopsided squad and early cup exit on every single manager that you actually employ yourselves. Imagine never once accepting responsibility

Imagine after an entire decade of promises, after 10 point pledges to the fans, after 'we'll be in the Champions League in 7 years plans'.

Imagine after all of that.. .

That you could still get away with things like having purchased just one single goalkeeper for a transfer fee in ten years. Every other goalkeeper in an entire decade has been signed on a free transfer.

By this point you are laughing at the morons still supporting you for 'saving the club'. You then imagine how much you could further save by not investing in trivial things such as fullbacks.

£11m has been spent on fullbacks in a decade. Both our current right backs were free transfers.

Imagine after all of this you still have the passive but lucrative support of the fanbase that you clearly so detest.

If you can get away with inheriting the below listed squad on the day you bought the club, having a whole decade in charge and then leaving us with what we've got now... And then having no riots about it... then you really have won. You've sanitsed us. Divided us and conquered us. Well done. Enjoy your money.

Look at the squad they inherited. A squad plying their trade at Upton Park. It's better than our current squad. It's better balanced. Our fans should be ashamed of themselves for letting this happen.

it would be most advantageous if the clubs owners employed suitably qualified individuals to do the job that they are p-laying at

Tomkings
Spector
Right footed Ilunga

Kováč
Spector (again)

57 Hines
Jimenez
Boa Morte

Cole



We had a barbeque at my house and were just talking but my whole team revolves around Jimenez. I've got Plan A and Plan B - Plan A is I'll have Jimenez there, Mancini there, Cole there, Behrami, Parker ... I said 'if that stays fit, it's Champions League!'. That is a team that I believes, if it stays fit will push on, so my whole team has been built round Jimenez.

Re: Imagine buying a PL football club like ours...
At the moment the club is worth more than £300 million than what they paid. I would say they are better businessmen than the owners of Stoke or Swansea or Portsmouth or Leeds or Middlesbrough or Derby or Fulham or QPR or.......... Sure we look look enviously at the bin dippers and Man City and Chelsea and wish the richest cunts had bought us but maybe they took a look and decided against for some reason?

Re: Imagine buying a PL football club like ours...
fair to say Daprela has not quite cemented his legacy as the next Roberto Carlos just yet

Re: Imagine buying a PL football club like ours...
One thing these lot are is sound business men.

Not sure they are, when it comes to the football business. Seem happy flirting with relegation on a regular basis, which is stupid, given the loss in revenues and club value when it happens.

BRANDED 1:12 Tue Nov 12
Re: Imagine buying a PL football club like ours...
They got us cheap from the ashes of corrupt Icelandic banking cunts. One thing these lot are is sound business men. What they are unlikely to do is pander to the fans.

They did save us. Problem is, after the saving was done, they should have moved on to save another club and handed over to somebody who could run the club.

Saving/building and running a club (or any business venture, really) require very different skill sets

mallard 11:53 Tue Nov 12

That is one dog-shite squad!

penners28 11:43 Tue Nov 12
Re: Imagine buying a PL football club like ours...
then imagine, after all that, that some people still think they SAVED US
