Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
Nearly 3 full seasons in the OS, and the mystical "next level" still seems to be years away.

Just wondered if the osers still milling about on here would still be for the move, if you know what you know now.

To me, most of what the DRUIDS predicted was spot on tbh and the owners are still the same old penny pinchers they have always been. Would be good to bring up the old OS thread and have a read through again to see if any of the claims have come true.

For me the summer transfer window will tell you everything you need to know as people like Carroll will be off, so let's see if his wages are used elsewhere. I also think they'll sell Rice...

No. It's a shithole.

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
Well if those figures are kosher than there are thousands of ST's who don't ever turn up. So the club need to put a stop to it by cancelling these ST's and not allowing them to renew, unless they have very good reasons for not attending games. It strikes me that these no-show merchants aren't WHU supporters and won't be missed.

According to Brady there is a waiting list of thousands so this lot can take up the slack and hopefully ensure a fuller stadium in future. Unless she's been economical with the truth about the numbers, in which case just put them out for general sale to youngsters at £10 a game. We need more youngsters in there.

There's been 11 men who don't "turn up" quite regularly.

Yes, that’s what the FOI requests have shown in the past.

Any Old Iron 12:35 Tue Apr 16
Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
So according to that around 13,000 people who've bought ST's etc don't bother turning up. I still think it's bollox.

Johnson 12:25 Tue Apr 16
Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
No, it’s based on FOI requests made about actual attendances.

When they've attended - what does that mean? A couple of blokes from Newham Council (with free tickets) make an estimate of the crowd and we're expected to believe it's averaging 42,000.

I'm no supporter of the bowl, but on the few occassions I've got there the place always looks fairly full and well above 50,000, never min 42k.

Sounds like some made up bollocks to prevent us expanding the capacity.

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?

That’s astounding!

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
From last season
"Newham council says the average attendance at West Ham was 42,779 based on the 12 games it attended - which is 12,530 fans fewer than the club's season average figure of 55,309."



Roughly the capacity of UP with a new East Stand !

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
We are not any better than when we left Upton park in 2016.

Many fans were only willing to sacrifice our history and culture for future success. I dont see any sings of that happening.

Disaster.

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
Haven't even yet been.

Still, I think I will wait until the 97 years left on the lease have passed before I make a decision.

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
Put it this way a business man or woman turning down a practically free 60 000 plus brand new stadium with excellent transport links would be mental.

For me it is still very plastic and the atmosphere comes in bits and bobs there is not much interaction between fans when chanting as the chants and songs get lost pretty quickly but when the game is against big teams the place is definitely better but it is still not the Boleyn.

HairyHammer 6:10 Mon Apr 15
Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
I would have happily stayed at Upton park forever but the one thing that tells me otherwise and I know now more than before are the crowd sizes West ham are a 50 plus thousand club now and have proved all the wankers who said we would never fill the stadium very wrong just imagine if we were a top six club 60 plus would be easy.

Re: Knowing what you know now....would you still want the OS move?
I think when the Dildo twins are offered a sum they can't refuse and bugger off the new owners will agree a fee for the stadium so fans are as close as possible to the pitch.The athletics will move elsewhere as the days of us having some of the best in the world are long gone.If only we could get a team to compete in every game things would certainly improve atmosphere wise.The Newcastle game when Bonzo had the stand named after him was like the old days atmosphere wise.So unless we were bought out by one of the richest tea towel wearing sheikhs who might build a new stadium elsewhere we are where we are and have to make the best of it.

You're right...we didn't have to move...that was down to our owners.

Regardless of whether we ended up at the OS or not I do blame Coe and his cronies for ensuring that the stadium would be near impossible to convert to football or even rugby. The legacy could of been maintained with a smaller warm up track being converted to a 30,000 capacity. Any additional seating required there could have been added with a flexible design. It's not like they weren't told but they chose not to listen.

But in the end all involved specified neither - which was financially negligent on their part. Almost criminal.

I hated Coe as a runner, always hoped Steve Ovett would win

I get what you're saying, but we didn't HAVE to move in?
