I'm thinking about swerving my usual pre match pints in the pub , but just bringing a few on the march with me.


Isn't it illegal to drink alcohol in public places anyway?

No.

Plenty of time to have a drink once it's finished.

Alcohol free stops people leaving the march, acting like idiots and generally not abiding by it's true intentions.

If you can't go a couple of hours in public company without a beer then you should be marching for AA, not action



Cheers fellas, I'll just have to pre drink before the march then it looks like. Means I'll have to start at like 8am but no bother. I wouldn't want any photos of the march to look bad

I'm pretty sure that Stratford park, aka West Ham Recreation Ground must be the site once known as Dunottar Park, which was the first home of our forerunner Castle Swifts.

A most appropriate start point if that's right.

Whilst the walk may be about 30 minutes, I reckon it's going to take much longer than that for those at the back to arrive. Then there's some speeches.

Will the Boleyn stewards borrow the Stop/Go boards to stop the traffic along Stratford High Street?

Must be some local history buffs around that can confirm/disprove that? Adds a nice touch of history the plan and (cynically) gives a little angle to add in to the media coverage.

While I'm coming up with solid gold AAA+ rated ideas, I'm sure there's a way to incorporate our beloved STOP/GO signs and GSB.

yeah actually you're right it will take twice as long as 30 mins so 45 to 60

Judging by his pathetic tweets in defence of his actions, I think Gold is clearly rocked by this

You're not wrong Puff. In fact it must be an absolute arse-ache for the lot of 'em, which is entirely the point of it. Our actions are saying a lot more than our words ever could & our words are pretty good.
Wonderings:
1) There are two 'road crossings'; West Ham Lane & Stratford High Street. I hope at both, the march isn't segmented too much by the obvious need to not hold traffic up.
2) I trust that there won't be any 'kettling' going on at any point, by plod.
3) I hope the rear of the march will be allowed to 'catch up' to hear all of the speeches.

Well done, SU & DDA. Stratford Park was indeed the first 'ground' for Castle Swifts.
And can you imagine the STOP GSB & GSB GO, boards? Well done DDA!

No!

No to misogyny , no to sexist comments .

We're better than that.[/quote]

Wholeheartedly agree with this. It won’t take much for people to revert to the “West Ham fans are animals” stereotype

Impossible to watch that video without feeling sad at the footage of the old ground. Made my stomach turn.

Top job by all involved :crest:

Thank you for sharing the video

I want to say I enjoyed it, but it just isn’t the right word, it resonated with me so much and it’s bloody heartbreaking it’s come to this, the loudest message in all that is family and community, that’s what we are and we’re, we are clinging onto the family and are seeing the community torn apart, it feels so detached from all we cherished about our club our fellow fans and our area

I’m proud of where we came from and always will be, I will never have that airbrushed out of my memory or told it was a ****hole or a dump, it was our home and it served us well and gave us our identity and pride, not of the teams we watched , but of everything about our matchday our cathedral for football and our family who congregated as one for us regardless wheee we were or how we played it was about us the fans and our pride :crest:

What a great video, it genuinely had me fighting back the tears. They have killed our club.....and they hit the nail on the head, we all fell for the lies of a grea5 new stadium with seats close to the pitch. A world class team and so many other shiny things whilst looking after all of our traditions etc. They have ripped us apart, they are do8ng so with a smile and making millions and millions whilst doing it!
