I hope I'm wrong but I can't help wondering if Hammers United, are one day pushed all the way into 'protest territory' by the boards intransigence, that they won't be threatened into not protesting, by persons known or unknown..

Wish the new group luck as we all want the same thing , a successful west ham united and a better matchday experience.

Taking into account nothing dramatic will change until the shysters leave and we own the bowl we need to look at small changes to the bowl and surrounding area.

here is another list of things that could be done fairly easily and with not much cost to the leeches !

1. What happened to the new carpet ?
2. Ball boys get properly trained so the ball is back in action quickly for west ham.
3. The colour of the seats is changed from white to claret. signs and lettering can be in light blue.
4. The much mooted squaring off of the TBL and BML , when is that happening ?
5. Filling in of corners .
6. The colouring of the concrete slabs around the place to west ham colours.
7. The concourse areas also repainted to west ham colours.
8. The area outside the ground to feature more west ham branding. again more west ham colours.
9. Reduction in price of mascots for the game. This should be free or at least half the current price.
10. Asssistance to away fans.
11. Encouragement for all fans to join in the singing and chanting. That is what makes football. stewards to receive better training in what to do and how to react to a football crowd.

Its not really what makes football at all is it? Its just part of the day out that you particularly enjoy.
Nobody should be forced at join in anything.

How do you propose that all fans are encouraged to join in anyway?

Apparently the green carpet was the reason for the poor record at the OS. Now the stadium's "Fortress London" should we change it at all...?

I probably missed it, but what do this lot offer that WHUISA doesn't ?


as for a dialogue with the club - good luck with that, they've already made it VERY clear that they only want to exchange views with those whose ideals match their own.. quite why anyone would want to deal with them directly I have no clue.....

Non political apparently.

Cuenca.We have some very well known and respected fans helping us and we hope that will aid recruitment.We aim to be far more proactive than WHISA.

Good luck to these people. I have joined the Facebook group.

Regarding WHUISA and those who are unhappy with them, surely the best thing to do is pay the £1 membership fee and vote in the next committee election, or even stand for election yourself. If not, you don't really have the right to complain about them.

:thup: the structure, the access to the PL, liaising with other supporters group nationally and on a club to club level is already in place.

Get onthe WHUISA bandwagon and bring your ideas to the party.

Also, the club seem to have their conscience pricked by WHUISA.
