I don't think I'd missed a home cup game (providing I was in the country) in about 14 years until this season but they took the piss with the prices for Accrington and the second cup game in Europe where previously they just did a blanket £10, £15 or £20 across all bands.

It's not about affording it but then taking the piss

There has always been different priced bands but for early cup rounds they had always done blanket prices and pretty much sold out... this season they have priced according to bands which I think is a pisstake along with their £50 quid for a plastic seat with bird **** on it and £50 for a blade of grass.

After being forced out of the stand I had chosen to sit in for no reason at all (one of the 114 crew) I will not be renewing and it hurts to say that after having a season ticket for 11 years. I paid to be next to the away fans, not forced to the other side of the stadium next to a load of freebie / day trippers and harrased by stewards / snatch squads. The club destroyed the only atmosphere the ground had and for what, nothing!
It's a shell of what the Boleyn was. Where is that thread about creating an AFC West Ham gone :(

At this moment in time I'm unsure, but leaning towards No.

But many of the reasons we're not in 6th spot are why supporters don't want to renew.

Some of us wanted to have a Poll much sooner so the position in the table couldn't be used as any kind of excuse. But I keep coming back to a lot of the same problems exist now as they did at the beginning the season and threads reflect that on here.

This isn't people kicking up a stink simply because we're down the bottom, it's been consistent all along.

This does happen every time we run a poll, though - ie those who share the minority view finding a reason why the result should be invalid.

By any standards this is not a scientific poll of fan opinion. It may be a poll of KUMB users but that is the size of it. Nothing wrong with that.

Indeed. We've sold our soul for success.

I believe if we'd pushed on or maintained the form of last season the stadium would be immaterial .

Unfortunately, we've been sold a pup.

We held our end of the devil's bargain but others didn't.

Here's hoping that even this paltry renew percentage is an over estimation in the only 'poll' that matters - season ticket renewal time next summer :thup:

This sums it up pretty well... had they have spent the money and we had pushed on then I'd be renewing so it is linked to success BUT due to the fact that was their promise for us moving not as we are not winning.

Had we of stayed at the Boleyn and we were playing like this I'd be renewing just as I have every other year

NO.

with a heavy heart this will be my last year as a West Ham season ticket holder after 25 years. I simply cannot get over the mess that is that ground.

Brady & Co never forgiven.

Reading the Standard last night brought home how terrible this move actually is.

They were talking about the fact that they are looking at The London Stadium to host matches at the Cricket World Cup in 2019.

I thought that will be good seeing some top-flight cricket in OUR Stadium.

I re-read the article in more detail with all the parties commenting and I then realised West Ham were not mentioned or quoted once in the entire article.

It hit me that this really isn't our home we are just tenants who negotiated a good deal for a prime piece of accommodation.

Seeing the wreckage of the Boleyn just makes me more angry the more I think about it.

I will still say that I entirely see the logic of what we have done, but I can't see past the fact now we have sold our soul for a cheap deal to cut costs,

I don't expect these clowns to see the errors of their ways and put it right. We are stuck with a dud as it stands

That cricket isn’t played at any other English football ground tells something about the Olympic Stadium.

Very good point. I imagine the boundary square of the wicket at Upton Park would've been on the small side!

we were promised Rome, we got Milton ****ing Keynes

Its nothing to do with the league position. Its the broken promises, the lies, all to get people to part with hard earned money. Money that just lining the pockets of these thieves

As others have already said, we'd have been better off staying back at the Boleyn if we weren't going to improve the playing squad
