Hammers United.-What do we want.
HAMMERS UNITED.-WHAT DO WE WANT?

As you know we have written to the club seeking a meeting.There are so many issues to raise but in particular we will be highlighting the following:-

Ticket Prices and Season Ticket renewals.

Some bands have seen major increases.Seats have been moved from one band to another(without notifying those affected).Renewal date brought forward.Those not renewing corporate tickets not being able to downgrade but forced to go to the back of the waiting list.And as for the waiting list what a shambles that is with tickets seemingly randomly issued.
We have had others better qualified than us produce a full report which will form the basis of any discussion with the club.

The London Stadium and Match Experience.

Well where do you start.We have been inundated with things our members want changed.Many issues stem from inadequate and frankly very bad stewarding.Improving this must be the priority.we are all sick to death of heavy handed stewarding,away fans in West Ham sections and stewards cheering when the opposition score.The Club have a duty of care to see that it’s supporters are treated fairly and at the same time be able to watch the match in a safe environment.It is not good enough to say the stewards are not their responsibility.-The well being of THEIR supporters is.
There are many other things supporters want changed but we feel the stewarding is the most important and will concentrate our efforts accordingly.However one reoccurring complaint which might be easily resolved is the lack of refreshment facilities in the upper tier.At half time It is impossible for supporters to get down the stairs,buy food and get back up again before kick off.Is there room on the upper tiers to add a refreshment area?

Memorial Gardens.

A very emotive subject.-And so it should be.
Supporters have loved ones here and understandably get very upset when the gardens are neglected .There is no doubt that the gardens have not been maintained regularly.Plans are in place for major improvements.We will keep an eye on developments.

Mascots.

West Ham charge more than any other Premier League club.Neil Taylor at LLTB.has raised this and been in contact with the club on the matter.it is about time he got a bit of support on this.
Help for Disabled Supporters.
To be fair West Ham seem to be trying hard to help supporters.Julie Pidgeon deals with accessibility issues and we have heard nothing but praise for her.There does seem to be one major issue in that the shuttle buses are held back until the away fans are dispersed.-Leading to a long wait.This is not good and needs to be addressed.
Champions Place Stones.
Another emotive subject .-And again so it should be.
The stones are becoming dirty and it is getting hard to see the inscriptions.This is after a relatively short space of time.If they are not cleaned and properly maintained the whole concept and meaning of them will have been a waste of time.-This needs to be addressed and should not be difficult for the club to resolve.

Erradication of our heritage.

Where do we start? Lee Rogers wrote a great piece on this which is on our facebook page.Says it all really.
West ham had a passionate and loyal fan base which was the envy of most clubs.-without doubt the best fans in London and perhaps the country.The fanbase didn’t need gentrifying.-The club should have played to it’s strengths.-For example maybe having a pop up Boleyn Pub in the ground.-And a pop up Nathans and Ercans.Many passionate long standing supporters have walked away.-feeling they are no longer wanted.We would like to see the club reach out to these supporters and try and get them back.
Many long term supporters feel that they just aren’t wanted there anymore.The club can put pictures etc up celebrating our heritage and that helps.-But what we want is to be made to feel welcome.We look forward to the imput of our members at the meeting of April 20th.-Especially so on what we put to the club on this.

Our away supporters.

The club give them no help whatsoever.As a committee we have 3 suggestions listed below which we want to put to the club.
!.The club offer next to no help with away travel.Our Supporters have solved this themselves with the brilliant Hornchurch coaches and Ironworks tours. However we would like to see train travel be put on for one off night games to long distance places such as Liverpool and Manchester in the league cup in recent years when no scheduled trains back were available.Trains are very expensive but for cup games the Club get a cut of the gate money.Manchester United the other year was around £60 a pop so every additional fan West Ham took they would have got nearly £20 which could have offset train costs.The situation probably arises once a year,if that,but we would like to see the club look into it.
2.Watford and Newcastle have a reciprocal arrangement whereby each gives the others fans £5 off admission.We would like to see West Ham contact both and see if this could be arranged.
3.Another suggestion is that when somebody has booked say 6 away games in one season then the club should make a gesture to thank them for their loyalty.-Perhaps a voucher for a free pie and a pint
One way or another we would like to see some help for our great away following.If any of our members have any other ideas we will of course take them into consideration.
Investment in the Playing Squad.
We encourage the club to invest as much as possible to give West Ham United the best possible chance of success on the pitch.They did invest heavily last Summer but investment in the years before has been woefully inadequate and we still have an aging and unbalanced squad.Sustained investment is required.Hopefully the club will match it’s obvious competitors in Leicester,Wolves,Everton .We do not expect it to match the investment of the top 6,that would be unfair.Rumours are that the Club will have a net spend of around £25 million this Summer.We hope these rumours are unfounded.This figure is obviously totally unrealistic in today’s Premier League.

These points will be put to our members on April 20th for endorsement.
We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
Thank You.
Greg Hobbs(Secretary).

Any update/news from the meeting?

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.

HAMMERS UNITED MEETING.SATURDAY AT THE PLAISTOW COMMUNITY CENTRE.

Most of you will have heard that Plaistow Underground Station is closed on Saturday.This is very unhelpful.

Please make the extra effort to come.From Stratford and West Ham there are buses every 5 minutes with a journey time of 7 minutes.From Canning Town it is similar.It really is not a big deal so please dont let it deter you.

We West Fans really do have to stand up and be counted and it starts NOW.

Thank You.

Cheers Goose, fuck me gruesome reading in those links.

You're right though its incredible the fuckers aren't getting

Hopefully that will start to change, their bullshit needs to be kept in the spotlight.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Just keep raking up shit and spreading it.

Some will accuse you of being a moaner, but don’t let that bother you.

These types of video are not fake news, just truths that are inconvenient and uncomfortable for the owners as long as they stay in the collective memory.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
and this is what frustrates me...........

they have lied and lied and lied again about the move, and yet they hardly get any grief or ill feeling.

Stick the links up here Goose if possible.
These fuckers need reminding on a regular basis about their bullshitting

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
There’s a lot of the videos doing the rounds on Twitter at the moment, exposing the lies and spin from the owners about the move.
Have a look at Vinnys Twitter.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Will do for sure.
Myself and most mates don't really have a balanced view on the board just pure fucking hate and disgust what they have turned the club into.
Sick to the back teeth of their lies and bullshit.
I don't know the politics of why the march against them was cancelled but for me and im sure many many others it was an incredibly sad decision.
Any pressure that can be put on them especially bad publicity can only be a good thing.

There's nothing they won't do for personal financial gain

They haven't thought twice about destroying so much about the club that people cherish

They are just wired up differently, utterly disgusting people.
Unfortunately we've always been cursed with shit owners but these three fuckers trump the lot.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Love the idea of the press campaign.
Every fan who loves this club who loves this club should want to get right after these three absolute cunts.
Very best of luck 100 % behind you

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
I am afraid Goose that West Ham is half dead already.We have got to give it the kiss of life.Please help best you can by spreading the word.-Thanks mate.

goose 9:50 Wed Apr 17
Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Hats off to you mate for getting off yr backside and doing something about it.
Without this kind of stuff apathy will spread abe West Ham United will die.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Hi Goose.we intend to run a campaign through the press,basically shaming the Club and their attitude to it's supporters.the season is coming to an end now so we are not going to organise protests outside the ground.We have to build our strength which we will do throughout the close season and should give us a membership of 5000 by the start of the season which will give us a good base to move on.we hope that the club do agree to meet,-and that they spend a decent amount in the summer.It could be that the mere presence of Hammers United leads to them spending a bit more than they would have.-Who knows,perhaps the knowledge that there are rumblings in the fan base may influence them.If we are disappointed and as is being mooted the transfer budget is infact £25 million then I think Hammers United may need to open a recruiting office next year.!!

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
When GSB sell, they will do a deal that includes the LLDC, there will be . shifts in risk and reward.

THe public sector will get tucked up in the deal with the new owners.
