I'm confused. I thought NUMB is what RWHF called this site?

Would be a a bit daft to include that if they hadn't already seen some such footage surely.

Unless you were trying to put off future protestors!

Maybe, but they will still need to produce the footage/implement bans at some point....

If people are looking for an easy way to buy that image on T shirts or indeed anything else the originator could consider putting it on Redbubble or similar site. Just a thought.

I was infront of the box, only thing i saw thrown was ripped up paper in the air, plus they want to hand out life bans, seems a bit harsh for a moment of madness!


Truth or not about 'missiles' - it's been said that Sullivan was hit with a coin - this is 2018 and the club have to show that they will act on any kind of disruptive behaviour not just for themselves, but to the FA, the insurers, the plod, the London authorities, the local authority and no doubt the athletics people who co-use the stadium. It's all box-ticking responsibilty now and it affects business (yeah, I know). I think the club are within their rights to ban individuals who cause disruption or act in a threatening manner. You were there Mr. Skid, I weren't and I guess you know what you saw, but these are things clubs have to do these days.

the reality is, whatever measures they take to make the stadium more legitimate in the eyes of the authorities will only amount to making the matchday experience even more of a soulless anti supporter frog-march. see the chelsea game in the league cup.

i expect the plums in high-vis to make a reappearance.

I was also there, I sit right in front of where the protesters gathered, and while it was noisy, and distracting, I saw no one throw anything nor did I see anyone in the directors box duck or avoid anything aimed at them. That's not to say it didn't happen, but I saw no violence, or missile throwing, just a noisy rowdy mob of a few hundred.

Everything about this statement is stupid and maddening.

West Ham United are committed to taking decisive and positive action with the primary focus of ensuring London Stadium is a safe, comfortable and secure environment for supporters attending future matches.


So when we told you it wasn't safe you didn't act, you're only doing something now you don't feel safe?

Any individual found guilty will be banned from attending any West Ham United fixture, home and away, for life and the Club will request the courts serve a banning order to prevent these individuals attending any football matches in the future.

West Ham United maintain a zero-tolerance policy towards any behaviour of this nature,


Not sure by using the language of a crackdown, you are capturing the mood of people here.

Senior Club representatives will take a full and leading role at an emergency meeting of the core Safety Advisory Group (SAG) at London Stadium on Thursday.

There, West Ham United will be joined by representatives from LS185, certifying authority Newham Council, the Sports Ground Safety Authority, the Metropolitan Police, E20 and the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC).


All the key stakeholders except... the supporters.

It certainly is, and it does nothing to even begin to address the unrest and disgust that permeates the Club. If anything it seeks to alienate us still further.

There is no evidence of coins being thrown, but I am pretty sure that there were other objects that landed in "no mans land". I suspect they will identify and penalise these people and make out that they're the individuals that threw the "coins" at Sullivan & co.

we had all this guff last time out, then me and 199 odd individuals turned up for a bit of a walk. we'll be doing it again regardless of whatever other faction claims it because as much as anything, we were there first.


Thus all ****ing day. No need for affiliating to groups or orgnaisers just come together as west ham and make our voices heard. And id say it was more like just 100 when we first set off walking, with more joining once we set off.

This whole situation with the board, and now two squabbling fan groups, all trying to exert their own brand of control over the fans actions is getting very tiring.

The fans should be pulling in the same direction, and the social media sniping is turning a lot of sensible supporters off.

The Facebook stuff has nothing to do with politics, or even West Ham, but everything to do with egos jostling for position based on their own exaggerated feelings of self-importance or their desire to impress their friends.
