|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Colours, let's say someone confirms it could be dug down like city has been (although expensive and time consuming I imagine) how would you convert for the athletics each year?
that's the bigger problem.
on another note I completely agree about getting proper astro turf, the green rug is an embarrassment and an injury waiting to happen, kept getting shot down about it not being important but it's a small and fairly cheap thing to sort for some multi millionaires
The only way to make it truly fit for purpose (as a proper football stadium) would be to knock it all down and to start again.
Having seating where the current running track is would be a non-starter, imo. I have sat in row 16 behind the goals when it has rained, and you do get rain on you that far back (state of the art roof apparently). If retractable seating was installed, the paying punters in that area would get soaked every time it rained. The roof does not offer enough protection, and the distance between the stands to the pitch is huge as we have all seen.
Imo, the retractable seating was a flat out lie. It could never be achieved, and our owners have shafted us.

This is one thing that the supporter representatives should be raising, our fanbase is no longer around Newham. Club coaches presumably drop off by the OS(?). Could they pick up and drop off in Essex, a couple of places? For distant away games could the club organise special trains, as other clubs do.
Will the club support the £20 is plenty campaign for away tickets?
What is the club's official view on safe standing and the experiments in Scotland? Is this entirely within the stadium operator's remit to install and operate?
Can the concourse TVs show the early kick off to encourage early arrivals. Can they also show the game whilst it is going on.
I realise that the toilet design is fixed but are there plans to remodel so that there is a separate entrance and exit instead of the farce where people need to force their way out through the crowd trying to get in.
No ones had a chance to request a relocation yet?
Knowing what you now know what one thing would you change about the migration?
Where do you want us to be in 5 years time and has the Stadium migration and this season impacted that?
David Gold recently implied that if 86% of West Ham fans wanted him gone then he'd go. What would be the equivalent percentage for yourself?
Is there anything that can be done to bring the walk from the train station to 'life'. Irrespective of distance it is a life sapping trudge which detracts from the experience of a home game. Maybe some food stalls etc could be nearer the station?
I know this isn't aauestion as much as an idea/ proposal (although it can easily be worded as a question) but
Is there any way initiative can be launched that makes X number of games attended per season ticket asa minimum. Others can debate or argue this one and a clause could be inserted for long term illness etc, but if someone with a season ticket fails to attend, say, 80% of home matches , the should not be allowed to renew.
Having spent 90% of the season next to a good7/8 empty seats on my left, it's not helped the atmosphere up where I sit...
1. Another vote for having the screens turned on, both for the other games being shown on TV and for our game live. Open up the concourse before and after games so that people can watch it in the ground, sell more beer etc etc.
2. Can we move all daytrippers up to the upper tiers behind the screens?
3. Can we open up the TBL to season ticket holders from next year, encourage a singing section from there round to the east stand by the corner flag?
4. Another request for more "Westhamification" on the lead up to the ground. I am also in favour of a fan park if it is a goer.
I second the question around shelving there is none in the BML and I am not talking just by the screen I mean in the actual concourse itself. Also would like to know the situation regarding toilets there are more female khazis near 152 than there are mens.
Well, I generally take a look back at the thread/s a couple of days ahead of the meeting and select the most popular questions along with some of those which are particularly pertinent and/or those I recognise will gain a worthwhile response.
The agenda was ours to decide, franks. Hence why we went through every point of KUMB's ten-point plan. I've no reason to believe this will be any different.
Probably that plank whos in bed with C&H
This may have already been said but - Shelving in the concourses.??
I'm sure this was promised by KB but i am yet to see any.
Trying to juggle a pie, a beer and read the programme is impossible if you haven't got in super early to get one of the tiny slots underneath the stairs to rest your pint on!
as pinky said last time around, it's not the first question that's important; that can be spun, evaded or contorted however the person answering it feels like, it's the follow up question.
suffice to say, there are no follow up questions.
I think UtJ meeting is a different gravy from the SAB. They seemed to be keen to engage with fan media but sadly not fan groups in the SAB. (that's not a dig, just my assessment of the situation)

Cross that bridge should we come to it. The main question that would need answering is if it's a possibility of not, then go from there. Hypothetically speaking though, I feel sure the Fans would be understanding of a cost and time it would take to get it done if it got the desired affect. With regards to Athletics, I wouldn't be surprised to see them jettisoned once the world champs and a few more events have been and gone. Who knows other than engineers and the like if it couldn't still be incorporated still.
I also couldn't agree more about the eye-sore green felt that should be covered with Astro turf a la Rugby World Cup. They couldn't even get that right.
I understand it fully, lets get one daft idea from the SAB, implement it, let it look like the board are listening to the fans, then it when it all goes tits up turn round and use it as an example of how supporter representation doesnt work.
As an example, the migration is one of the biggest concerns for myself and many others who have been given poor seats despite being persuaded to upgrade.
Despite writing upwards of 20 of emails to the club asking them what I can do about this, I never got a single reply. This is because its a difficult issue that they do not really want to address.
Whereas switching a few TV's off is an easy win, as is putting in a few shelves for people to put their beer on.
The overall feeling coming out of the club right now is that they don't give a s*it about anything unless it makes money.
The fanbase is constantly being treated with contempt and I cannot see the toothless SAB changing any of that.
