Superbly written piece as always but with a deep and significant representation of how I imagine most of us are feeling at the moment.

And then you have West Ham Fan TV coming out with a ridiculous statement like

"A few comments were made over the weekend by Andy who has come out and held his hands up and apologised heat of the moment, well leave that at that now the man cant do anymore"

Why are these people not condemning the man, i wish more people had the balls to say it how it is!

Over on Twitter, West Ham Fan TV posted a reply to one of these comments on the video of the fan shouting at David Gold. It went along the lines of "I'm not a fan of the board, I'm just a fan of people not acting like a c***."

Everybody's favourite ITK retweeted it. My reply to both of them is that if they're such big fans of that, why aren't they condemning what has been said in these Facebook posts? No reply, no reply to my follow-up. They're scared.

Maybe the second half of your sentence answers your question.

A well written piece, summing up perfectly the way many of us feel.
The events of the last few days have taken the "United" out of West Ham, To solve a short term problem (for them), the board have killed the goose that laid the golden egg. I hope we stay up solely to counter the inevitable excuses about being in the championship to explain away the vast drop off in season ticket sales next season.
If they can't blame it on relegation, the board will have more difficult questions to answer, if any journalist worth their salt cares to ask them.
Razzle Dazzle was too kind to them.

****ing hell GSB how could you have battered this football club the way you have?


One word MR....................MONEY!

It's their God, It's the only thing they care about and sadly more that enough of it still isn't enough for them.

Anyway, back on topic, as always HHS a fantastic article. You put everything I think and feel in a context and prose that I wish I could. Thank you Sir.
