Hammers United - New Supports Group (please read)
Mods, if you wouldn't mind making this a sticky, we'd appreciate that.

Hammers United is a West Ham United fans group dedicated to improving things for all West Ham Supporters young & old.

𝗦𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁

1. We aim to engage the club's board in meaningful discussion aimed at improving all things related to supporting this great club of ours

A. The whole match day experience at The London Stadium needs massive improvement

B. We will also seek discussion on other matters important to supporters such as ticketing, pricing, mascots, stewarding, the memorial gardens, facilities for disabled supporters, Champion Place stones and Club Heritage.

Indeed on any matters of concern raised by our members

2. We will encourage the club's board to sanction substantial investment in the club's playing squad to give West Ham United the best possible chance of success on the pitch

3. We are a non-political group and our sole interest is the supporters of West Ham United

4. We will not be seeking any financial commitment from our members at all

5. This is not a protest group. It would be great if the Board delivered on all fronts, however, should they not deliver then we need to be organised and both ready and able to challenge them if the need arises

We urge you to join now via Facebook and our contact page or direct via email.

Nice one, c_c.

Simple and to the point. We'll see whether they answer or not.

Those that have joined up, could you C&P the letter and send it to anyone you know who has doubts. There's no hidden agenda, simply what it says on that there tin.

I am not sure that is the right approach.
What is missing from the supporter representation groups is one making the big 'unreasonable' demands.

We have WHUISA and the shit new SAB for the quick wins that the club can deliver to do enough keep most the wolves from the door. The fundamental issues that blight the club remain though.

This is not a comment on the worth of HU - I've said before I applaud and will back any supporter/group who mobilises for the greater good. Absolute fair play to them, I just think there is a danger of seeing several groups fighting over the same scraps while the carcass continues to fester.

I think it matters.

As a business owner you genuinely listen to paying fans and customers.

Make realistic demands that are achievable and I think they’ll be delivered.

I fully support and agree with all the points in the statement, I wish you all the luck in the world.

Sadly I do not think it will make any difference. I will however be happy to admit I was wrong.

I'm with you on this and I'm no fan of Facebook, but for now, it's a tool I'll use to help further this cause.

Most websites are data mining, and other than WHO that I use, I can't think of other websites that don't.

Ag! It'll be just me then that went Venezuelan.

Not trying to put others off, but I'm not too minded to publicly link myself to this cause. I believe it but have other issues that over-ride this - certainly in freely offering my personal information online to all and sundry.

This is not the place for that. All I am looking to do is support the cause without signing up. I'm not asking people to understand my stance; mouths & gift horses, and all that.

Re: Hammers United - New Supports Group (please read)
I understand the RWHFAG put a lot of noses out of place, but this group are not linked with them. In fact, partly born out of the disappointing way the whole saga with RWHFAG ended, Hammers United are keen to stress that this is an all-inclusive group of some very long-suffering fans wanting to enact change at board level and they/we/us can only do that with fellow West Ham.

I understand the trepidation to get involved, but nothing other than your support and ideas are being requested.

I've put a post on Facebook group for those that have joined asking what the issues you believe should be raised with the board if HU manage to sit down with Gullivan/Brady. If you're on there, why not add your two-pence?

PS Bring back Herbie!

Appreciate that, me old china, facebook is not just harvesting user data via it's own app/interface, but also by default from many websites under the guise of forcing the user to accept cookies "and other technologies" for "a better experience" (doesn't say who's).

Many MSM sites, plus thousands of blogs have this policy and for many, even the act of reviewing the settings initially triggers acceptance by default, but, and this is quite common, the review webpage is slow to update and indicate that you've accepted by default, so people rush away (cos they're so, so, busy - people to see, deals to do, that sort of thing) completely unaware that facebook is now watching their every move.

I meant to say you can join up by email only, instead of on Facebook.

There’s no need to sign anything in blood, mate. You don’t need to hook up on Facebook; you can join up, free of any few, and keep abreast of the talking points, and offer your own advice on what to do and what not to do. You’re a bright man, so any input will be more than welcome.

Can't argue with that. If there was a way of supporting this cause without actually joining I may be interested.

If you look at Leeds and Blackburn the way they threw money about was not sustainable. Leeds gambled on European football and Blackburn won the first premier league title as I recall ?

Re: Hammers United - New Supports Group (please read)
I've noticed C&H amongst others today covering the story that we spent 'well beyond our means' last summer and that upping season ticket prices only covers a very small percentage of the loss that this has incurred.

This along with the low budget that is being publicised for the upcoming window would suggest that it will not be more of the same this summer and may even be an attempt at managing our expectations in the event of sales of key players.

But as said below, it's a long game and we wait and see what happens.

Lily Hammer 2:11 Tue Mar 19
Re: Hammers United - New Supports Group (please read)
I can’t say I disagree with any of that, 67.

And for our part, it’s the long patient game, as long as we get the support. We simply want dialogue and proof that we’re being listened to, long term.

Indeed, Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Lily Hammer. Both the Davids and Brady are successful business people. They will have a long term business strategy /plan. Getting the O/S for the for next nothing at the end the ongoing negotiations.and not give Bilic and Moyes big money to spend.

We'll see their true intentions in the summer. Being realistic its a work in motion and nothing will change overnight

Vexed

As much as I dislike lots, (possibly most) of what the owners have done, I and I believe most involved will give credit where it’s due. Getting a manager like Pellegrini in, backing him with decent wedge last summer, Bonzo’s stand and his day at the stadium, to name a few examples, are all very commendable.

The owners deserve praise for that. As a fans group we can say well done, but with that, we have to pull them up on the things we think they’re doing wrong, and also make it clear that they need to keep being as generous as possible with their cheque book, if they are to live up to half the promises they made when they moved us from our home and sold it before confirming 100% that they could deliver the stadium they lead us to believe we were getting.

They still owe us, and we need to make that clear to them.
