West Ham United Football Club

I was there was the bond protests in 91 (92 ?) and it was pure 2 sided, a board that wanted to fuck over the fans to their faces, and the fans. Now we have fans being threatened by other fan groups because they were bought off by Brady. The guy with the corner flag yesterday was trying to reenact that game against Everton under the bond scheme. But instead of Julian Dicks agreeing with him and ushering him off, we get his co invader being floored by Mark Noble. Who since then has become a villain of the piece with some sections of the fans now calling him a club mouthpiece etc. No more Mr West Ham. By the way the same fans who got bought off by the club.

 

Everyone is pointing at everyone else, like some sad take off of the Life of Brian . What didn’t the dildo brothers do for us anyway.

 

Onto those fuckers, they have nickel and dimed their way to their payout, but it cannot happen for 2 more years. If we had marched maybe that could have got to them. Especially if we did it every game. Maybe boycott games, but that’s shoots us in the foot. Running around the ground and getting kids caught up in it is fucking out of order full stop. I said to someone’s yesterday that 20 yrs ago I would have laughed it off as normal, but hopefully we have all grown up since then.

And as for Brady casually saying this week that our 43mil profit would have been the same if we had stayed at UP,  talk about putting the boot in !

 

What we we are seeing will be a sea change for the club, and even more identity will go with it. Did you see that picture of Trevor Brooking yesterday? As I said earlier, heartbreaking.

I was there at the Bonds scheme too ( a mere teenager following his big brother in awe). I think Noble is suffering from being a fan and an employee. He's not the brightest star in the sky and you can see him really struggling to not say what he wants during interviews.

 

Not sure what you mean by no payout for 2 more years? Part of the early sale penalty clause runs out this month and it goes away altogether in 5 years. I can't see them sticking it out for that long (if Sullivan's ill health is to be believed and Gold would be 87 which seems a bit late to waiting for such a dividend). I think if they're still here next season (regardless of what division we're in) then they'll be here for good but I suspect they may think 'fuck it, losing 25% is better than 5 years of this shit' and sell up if they get a bite.

 

I saw some pics of Geno looking glum, but I also saw pics of his laughing and the protesters gave him a few rousing chorus' of 'only one Trevor Brooking'.  I think he's just sad to see his beloved club reduced to this, which to be honest, we all are. 

 

As I said in the football thread. It's a shame kids got caught up in it yesterday but it was going to happen sooner or later. It absolutely had to. We have to hope that the poison has been bleed out a bit and some healing can happen.

Fair do on the payout. I thought it was a straight 4 years. 

 

I agree with protest but ultra style tactics are not the way. What’s next, start turning up to training and not let the players in ? Apparently most of the press has actually landed on our side after the initial noise, so let’s ride that genuine vector to rid ourselves of these clowns.

But fans arguing with fans is not the way.

Did it seem ultra style to you? I'm not having a pop so please don't take my question as such! I'm purely asking as to me, it seems like a spontaneous  - fuck it, those guys have started having a pop at the board, let's join them - situation that was exacerbated by ease of access to the directors seats (thanks to the stadium not being a football stadium) and the pathetic security arrangements. 

 

I wouldn't worry about fans blocking off Rush Green. It'd probably be a good thing for the players as the curse of the concrete pitches from Chadwell Heath seems to have migrated along with the first team ;)

Some of that was organised and some was spontaneous. Like I say let’s get this out in the national press and TV while they are on our side. We kick off every game though, that will soon turn.

Yep. You can cheer the team and chant anti board songs from the stands with no problems. Doesn't have to be a scrum in front of their seats to get the message through to them.

 

Let's do it the right way.

BCFC fucked them off, we need to as well. Was nice to see the old badges inside the ground yesterday however. Not sure about the flag thing before kick off though. Reminds me a bit of the fake flag waving at Chelsea and Arsenal. Not needed.

So, deep breaths and I've calmed down since Burnley.:) Blogs up and its goodish news for a change.

That said and it's not on the blog, I have had to raise a complaint about the prick who sits next door to me. Never in nearly 35 years have I ever spoken to a steward apart from to ask the where the toilet is on an away game.

Nothing sinister , he's just a prick. Who thinks lobbing half a bottle of water at people 3 rows in front of him with their backs to him, is acceptable behaviour because on an attack they had the termerity to stand up and partially block his view. Prick......

Back with a blog detailing what was not a great game. Prick boy has been dealt with and seems to be behaving

Yay, we have bought some players. Jack can keep Andy and Winston company on the treatment table. Hopefully Anderson is as good as his fee. Yarmolenko is supposed to be a bargain so good news there. The influx of defenders means as well as James Collins, Ogbonna might be on his way, which is a shame. Antonio seems surplus to requirements but injury may prove that we have seen the best of him. Balbuenas is interesting. Calling yourself the General, takes some bollocks in East London !

The one thing that everyone seems quiet about is Mark Noble. Is this the season Mr West Ham hits the bench and championship for Xmas ?

And a nut and bolt changaroo at Rush Green. About time!

 

Well played Manuel, so far sir......

It’s been a while, hi. 

 

VAR can go fuck a donkey.

 

Out.

 

Why because it made the right decision? The injustice would have been if the goal was flagged offside when it wasnt.

Really ? This is not the first time this season , so not just about yesterday. If 5mm is offside but can’t be sorted by the Lino (because they cannot see it) then get rid of them. Any fucker can blow for throw ins. Just let tech run it all.

Just take all the emotion out of the game while you are at it. 

 

Tech has its place, but the smallest of infractions isn’t it. Before you talk about lines on a screen, can you be 100% sure it was at the exact time of contact of the header. Without that being filmed from the right angle as well, you can’t, so that 5mm might be at the header ? 

 

Clear and obvious mistakes only. Or change the rules to empower the actual officials. 

 

Before I get accused of bias, I think the goal by Sterling against West Ham was legit as well.

Even without technology if the linesman blew that as offside it would have been an injustice as it was bang in line with your defender, therefore not offside.

 

I dont see any emotion being taken out the game, fans are still celebrating the goals and so are the players. 

 

You even get to celebrate a goal being chalked off, which fans seem to be loving (see both of Spurs games against City).

 

You're just bitter than VAR ruled it as a goal, which is the correct decision. Without VAR the linesman would have got it wrong.

Not bitter at all. Disappointed at a game I have attended at the top levels for over 35 years is slowly being destroyed by technology. 

You obviously missed the part where I mentioned Raheem Sterling incorrectly (in my eyes, and everyone else in the stadium) had one chalked off, in a game where they beat us 0-5. Before you call me up on that, it was even reported by the BBC that is was for a handball, when it was actually an offside (everyone told later - post game) 

Part of the appeal of football is the human element. Also, when they are reviewing, why can't we see what they are looking at, and why can't it be full on 90% to the pitch, rather than this odd angle but frankly doesn't help their sell.
