I must admit I winced at that segment too.

They've already won though, Upton Park is nothing but rubble now.

All the while West Ham are still the laughing stock of English football...

West Ham is dead.


I don't know what's worse, this or the the mockney Essex boys thinking they're hard bowling around in their Stone Island gear. Particularly when they're middle aged or older.

That's equally as embarrassing.

West Ham isn't a laughing stock, most people outside of the club seem to think we're ok and a fair few think the stadium is ok.

Neither are we dead, this club will be here long after these to chancers and their kids have left the club, it's just another part of our history., unfortunately we are the poor buggers living in it.

Tbf, most Spurs and Arsenal fans I know have considered us a laughing stock for as long as I can remember. Nothing has really changed there

Most people I know who support 'non-rivals', appreciate the owners are helmets but don't view us anywhere near a laughing stock as other clubs with high profile problems such as Newcastle, Sunderland, Villa etc

Far as I'm concerned we aren't there because of them but in spite of them!!

I haven't seen any comments from Sully after the game ... not saying he ain't but has anyone read anything from him?

The charade is well and truly up


Happens at every Premier League ground, so why focus on us?

We are much much more of a laughing stock than all of those clubs, off the pitch at least...

North Bank, a laughing stock with who, I've seen and heard nothing anywhere in the press and I watch and read about a lot of football, I've also got plenty of friends who support other clubs, apart from the one Spud fan I know everyone else thinks the stadium is good (some have been there), and the club is generally on the up (I think differently).

I hate the owners (a strong word I know), I actually think there are deep routed issues at the club, driven by them, however what we are not is a laughing stock in world football, far from it.

So come on then rather than just using the sarcastic smiley let's hear some actual examples.

Most things we do are absolutely amateur...

The state of our chairman's email, which has been doing the rounds lately, is just the latest thing...

Geezer on talkSPORT had it right the other night, said we were a franchise & a soulless club, so there's one media outlet for you.

Oh and Sky apparently having a laugh at the boards reluctance to spend money on the OS last night is another...

To read much stuff on here and elsewhere you would think that West Ham fans were shrinking violets who blush prettily at every bit of negative press.

Embarrassment , you hear that a lot. Embarrassed to be West Ham..Laughing stock .Frankly...that sort of statement is more embarrassing than the thing they are embarrassed about.. :)

West ham fans live in this little bubble.

I'm not embarrassed. I don't like Gold, Sullivan and Brady much. They do embarrassing things. They make mistakes. But I'm not embarrassed. And in all honestly that's not how we are seen by friends and relatives of mine.

They are all wrapped up with the embarrassments of their own clubs...........for all clubs have them. Others are acting like eejits.

It's just that West Ham fans think they are extraordinarily different and affected more than other clubs.

We're not really. But we like to think we are............there is some sort of comfort in being the biggest idiots of all.

We're a bigger laughing stock than Arsenal?

Not sure I agree with that remark.

Agree with some of that North Bank but I disagree that we are the laughing stock of English football, I think DC put it far better than I did, and I whole heartily agree with what he says.

I think Palace are in a far worse position than we are, how many managers is that now in 4 years, with the last one having just four games, I'd say a lot more people are laughing at them rather than us having the dildo brothers in charge
