Hammers United.-What do we want.
Paul Colborne's Interview with American Hammers TV.
https://youtu.be/D5wO7vPsN8o



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).

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.



Please find West Ham's latest response re away fans in home sections.We have had numerous reports of Man U. fans in West Ham sections so will be replying accordingly.

Dear Lee,

Thank you for your response.

The Club and Stadium Safety team are wholly satisfied with our safety and security processes and we will take appropriate action should any visiting supporter be found to be in the home sectionsof the Stadium.

A bespoke safety strategy is created in advance of every home match and visiting supporters in home sections is one of those elements that we consider when making preparations for the game. Thisalso includes a pre-match meeting of all stadium partners and stakeholders, including members of the Safety Advisory Group (SAG). Members of the SAG are present on matchday and are fully aware of our processes in handling such situations. All incidents aremonitored and handled in a carefully considered and proportionate manner and in accordance with Ground Regulations. Our policy is clear, that any visiting supporters found to be present in home sections will be ejected from the stadium. Last Sunday at ourhome match v Manchester United, we experienced some cases of visiting supporters being present in the home section and all were ejected from the stadium in line with our policy.

The Club also takes a number of proactive steps to mitigate the risk of visiting supporters gaining access to tickets in the home section. This includes monitoring ticket sales patterns for any suspectedvisiting supporters, liaising with the visiting club directly, cancelling ticket purchases, and blocking the accounts to prevent future bookings. We also monitor illegal ticketing agency websites and work with our counterparts at other clubs and the PremierLeague to report any incidents of misuse to the authorities.

Having discussed this subject with my counterparts across the Premier League, I can assure you that this situation is not unique to West Ham United. The modern day global appeal of the Premier Leaguedraws crowds from all corners of the world, many of whom will have varying cultures and different environments within their local stadia. The vast majority of supporters that we eject from London Stadium are international supporters, who purchase tickets viaunofficial channels and may not be fully aware of the environments of football stadia in the UK. Our Ticketing team monitor and cancel any tickets purchased via unofficial sources and will take action against any person or agency found to be selling our ticketsillegally.

Stewards are briefed to remain vigilant at all times and to prevent entry to any supporters who clearly display visiting supporters colours, however, there are occasions were supporters conceal theircolours prior to entry. In any case, the safety and security will take appropriate action in dealing the situation as soon as it is made known to them, either by a steward or through a supporter using the many reporting mechanisms we put in place on matchdayto assist in resolving such issues.

Should any supporter witness a visiting supporter in the home section I would strongly advise that they report this immediately in any of the following ways:

•Speaking to the nearest steward or steward supervisor

•Speaking to the nearest Supporter Liaison Officer

•Sending a text message to the dedicated SMS Reporting Service on 07860 404 069

All text messages sent to our SMS Reporting Service are received directly to our Control Room and it enables us to monitor the situation as it is happening and to take the necessary action.
Please be assured that the safety and security of all supporters is of paramount importance to the Club and London Stadium.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Yeah, we all want a T Shirt that doesn't fit. What's the problem with people...........

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
You can add another group to that list.

How many were sold to the points collectors who buy tickets because they are so affordable but don’t always go themselves and either sell the tickets on (not saying necessarily for profit) or perhaps just don’t go as may have been the case for all the empty seats at Newport?

Same question applies to the away season ticket holders, how many of their tickets are passed on or not used?

Any truth in the rumours that checks may be made in future?

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Hi Paul,




Southampton have sent shirts before to game who did every Away game. Reading are paying for travel expenses for 15 games this season. Notts County once handed out shirts to the first 100 fans who came through the Away turnstiles. I have a feelingChelsea may lay on extra trains although not 100% on that. I’ve heard numerous other stories of clubs writing to thank away followers and reimbursing costs after poor performances. Some home clubs offer a pie / pint voucher to travelling fans. Ticket detailsoften come out before ours are released for clubs who have Away fixtures on the same day.




Hope this helps.

Huddersfield did, a very quick google shows. A free away top for all travelling fans to Southampton on the last day of last season.

Gooners a few years back at Man City away, according to the next article under the same google search.

I imagine there are more examples up and down the country, among the 92 league clubs and all the non league clubs.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Some clubs, on the face of it, would appear to answer the question with a resounding ‘yes’. Ticket details might be released at the earliest opportunity, travel might be subsidised or paid for all together, letters of recognition might be received, gifts might even be bestowed on supporters as they come through the turnstiles in the away end.


out of interest which clubs do this?

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.



Please find below letter we have just mailed to West Ham re.away ticket distribution.-Thank You.

Jake Heath,

Supporters Services Manager,

West Ham United FC.,

London Stadium,

London E20 2ST.

September 26th 2019.

Dear Jake,

Many of our members are expressing concern about the distribution of tickets to our away matches. and we write on their behalf accordingly.Hammers United eagerly await your response to the views expressed in this letter as well as the practical suggestion that has been put forward.

Football. Football is a unique entity. If you ask someone why they have chosen their football club or what their football club means to them, typical responses are likely to share key elements. People might describe themselves as fans or supporters, possibly prefacing those descriptions with another term, such as loyal. They might reference family or community and the sense of attachment and belonging that they feel and experience.

If a football club were to be viewed as a business, and those who spend money at that football club viewed as customers, then this would be a true ‘one of kind’ business operating in a true ‘one of a kind’ market. If Football were a business, it would be a unique one. This would be a business that could turn a profit without customers of its own yet a business where it’s own customers will return, unconditionally, to invest their time and money. A lot of time and a lot of money. The business would not need to market itself to attract custom, it would not need to provide a service to keep it’s customers, it would not need a complex pricing strategy to entice customers and would not have to worry about customers leaving to invest time and money with a rival.

So whether you view West Ham United as a business with customers or a football club with fans and supporters, you cannot argue against the fact that it’s position is unique.

So a question arises. Should the football club look after it’s fans? Or, to ask the same question from another viewpoint, should the business value it’s customers? Financially, it might not be a requirement. Morally, it is surely a must.

Football clubs don’t appear to respond to that question with a consistent answer. There are many examples that demonstrate this. The specific example Hammers United would like to focus on at this point is the travelling fan. This fan often commits huge sums of money and vast expanses of their time to following their team away from home. Should they be looked after? Should they be valued?

Some clubs, on the face of it, would appear to answer the question with a resounding ‘yes’. Ticket details might be released at the earliest opportunity, travel might be subsidised or paid for all together, letters of recognition might be received, gifts might even be bestowed on supporters as they come through the turnstiles in the away end. At present, there is a feeling among our members, that West Ham United might answer that question a little differently. Does West Ham United value it’s loyal travelling support and should it look after those fans?

We are not writing asking for any gesture, such as those listed above, that would cost the club money. Nor a measure of value that would require additional thought, creativity or a great deal of time. We are suggesting something that is free, simple and straightforward to implement: Transparency.

The travelling fan keeps a close eye on their chances of acquiring tickets to away games. If they can’t acquire tickets they look into what they might do to put themselves in a position to acquire them in the future. A lack of transparency around how tickets are sold leads to confusion on this front. A fan or supporter who is valued, would be made to feel valued by being informed.

In practical terms, this would be something as simple as publishing which groups of supporters are purchasing the allocated tickets for any given away game. The travelling fan would then feel informed. They would know which group they would have to belong to, to enable them to secure tickets in future. For example, how many tickets were sold to Away Season Ticket Holders, how many to Corporate Season Ticket Holders, how many to Bondholders and how many to each level of Priority Points holder.

We would like to engage with West Ham United on the matter of transparency and looking after fans and supporters. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on this specific topic as well as the sentiment expressed here. We believe a positive step in the specific area of away ticketing will act as a welcome symbol of the clubs stance and intent.



Kind regards,

Lee Rogers.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Hammers United, Our Journey so far.

“You have to know the past to understand the present”
(Carl Sagan)


Firstly I don’t wish to dwell on the past. However we must understand how we have arrived here. So how far do we go with our trip down Memory Lane? Our Working Class roots & heritage in shipbuilding? The general strike? Football through the war? There is so much History. Then there’s the heady days of the 60’s 70’s and 80’s which saw a prolonged period of relative success (I raise a glass to all here who were there in those days) which led to the tag of “The Academy of Football” and saw WH become many peoples “other” team. During this period when travel became widely available at football our fans reputation often preceded us wherever we travelled. The cheeky cockney wit, never say die attitude and loyalty to the Claret & Blue that was envied far and wide.

So we arrive then, via a period of limited success, through the Icelandic Takeover & the associated debt, to the arrival of our current owners. West Ham fans apparently , they would not have risked the takeover for any other club. They would stabilise the debt, and work towards the jewel in their crown, the newly built Olympic Stadium. The lure of increased revenue and attendance was used to promise “A World Class Stadium for a World Class Team.’

It was here that I, Like many, lost the plot. We were taken in by the promises. I just wish we could turn the clock back and do things differently but sadly we didn’t. We took our 30 pieces of silver and “endorsed” in some small way the move to Stratford. Cue broken promises, missed targets and the rest. We should have stuck together. We’ve done it before. Be it 50 at a grim Northern ground in the 70’s making ourselves heard and supporting the team. Or the glorious days of the Bond Scheme Protests. We’re West Ham. It’s what we do. Only this time we didn’t.

So the game was lost. And we now see what I feel is the gentrification of football. This is a world where fans are replaced by consumers and customers. More Opera than Upton Park. And I don’t really like what I see.
That brings us to November 2017 and an upsurge in Fans who were willing to stand up and seek answers. With the threat of a large scale march in March 2018 on the cards the Club twitched. Bad Publicity is a genuine fear for these people, damage to brand reputation. And it was on the way to their door, carried by many thousands of Fans who’d quite simply had enough.
A coalition was built, meetings were held and concessions made. Sadly this was where the bubble burst. Normal people up against a multi-million pound machine. Out manoeuvred by the Club the coalition broke down. Two smaller marches went ahead but for many, momentum was lost. And the anger turned to apathy. Many have walked away, others may soon join them. A sad state of affairs. Then came Burnley and for me the hope that the spark was still there. To see the corner flag raised in protest, as we had so many years before was an iconic moment. Someone who cared enough, not about himself, as his actions earned him a lifetime ban (which he accepts), but for all fans. He could stand no more. The rest, as they say, is History. And at that point we will leave the past behind.

“We can’t completely understand and build a better future without knowledge of the past. The past informs the future”
(F. Scott Fitzgerald)

In February this year I was contacted and being fairly outspoken on SM asked for my thoughts on starting a new Supporters group. I met shortly after with some other like-minded people and all agreed that we owed it to everyone to try once more. To succeed we would need to gather large numbers and importantly attempt to heal our divided fan base. With this in mind, Hammers United launched in March 2019. We currently have c5050 members.- Not bad as we have only been in existence for less than 6 months.We want to have dialogue with the club and help bring improvements to the match-day experience for all supporters. At the same time we must encourage the club to invest in the playing squad.

We have now established a committee, ratified by our members at an open meeting in Plaistow. We have a constitution , a website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram presence and members also have the ability to register via email.We are full associates of the Football Supporters Association.

Most of us are new to this but make no mistake. We are learning fast. We have written to the club requesting a meeting. This was, as expected, refused. They suggested we apply for a seat on the OSB which was declined by our members 9-1. And here’s the thing. Yes.. our members declined. Because they run Hammers United. We are on hand to do the day to day stuff but our Members dictate the strategy.
The club refuse to meet us and as such are in breach of Premier League,Uefa and Government guidelines, so we have sent formal complaints to all three.We have launched an initiative to assist our fans should they experience inappropriate stewarding.We have written to the club asking them to look into the many anomalies of their season ticket waiting list.We have written raising concerns at away fans in West Ham sections. -One by one we are addressing the issues important to West Ham supporters.These things take time but we are doing our best.

So what happens next? And where is the End Game going to take place? Honestly that’s a question none of us can answer. But I’ll say this. When we launched we all agreed this wasn’t going to be easy. Quite the opposite; I’m still stunned at the amount of work that’s involved so I tip my hat to all who do this on WH sites or groups and salute you.

One thing is clear. This will be a long campaign. I fully believe we will need to demonstrate “Fan Power” in whatever form it takes. But equally I firmly believe it’s worth fighting for. There are currently two options. Put up and shut up, or walk away. I understand why people have chosen to take each option but for me both choices are unpalatable. At Hammers United we want to offer you option 3. Make a stand, Together. I will keep trying till the game is up, and beyond, if you will all stand with me.

We have some good people on and around our committee. We have the backing of many loyal supporters.We had both a show of support and also a fair grilling about our intentions during the open meeting we held. More will come this season. We’re not going away. And we will be visible if you want to come and see us on and around match days.

But, and it’s a massive but, our commitment will only carry us so far. We need the most important ingredient in all this to succeed. YOU…. THE WEST HAM FANS… without you we are just a group of people who want to change things. We can steer the ship but it’s YOU that will make it happen. All of you. When 10-20-30k people say no, the board will have to listen. But we have to make a stand. TOGETHER.

So who’s up for it? If you’re not a member join. Tell everyone. Friends, family & work colleagues. When you see Hammers in the pub or on the train to games, talk to them. We have 5050 members. If everyone signed up one person by the end of October we’d have 10,100,. Do the same again in November 20,200. You can make this happen.

It’s time to take back what’s ours,
Our tradition and heritage is being eroded. We are being gentrified.-And what about the ‘world class team for a world class stadium’?
Make a Stand, Say “No More”
We can do it, as Hammers… United…
Who’s with us?

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.



Progress report from Hammers United.

Here is an update to the progress that we’re making on your behalf as another busy week comes to a close.

We continue in our efforts to raise awareness of away supporters in the home sections at the Olympic Stadium. As you should now be aware, this is a breach of the conditions of sale of their ticket, and the stewarding and security teams are under strict instructions to remove any away supporters that they are made aware off.

Having received a reply from West Ham (who have given their endorsement and assurances as to the competency of the third-party security and stewarding teams), and given the inability of those teams to address what is now a re-occurring issue, we have suggested that the club asks for a re-evaluation of the current processes, administers additional training where possible, and engages with visiting supporters clubs to advise against the practice of crashing the home end, detailing the risk and consequences of such behaviour.

You will also be seeing a number of us giving out stewarding advice leaflets around the ground and in the local area, raising the profile of Hammers United on matchdays. Members of our committee will always make themselves available to discuss any concerns you may have and can normally be found in the Plaistow Community Centre or The King Edward VII in Stratford on Matchdays.

Last week we attended the Football Supporters Federation Fans for Diversity Conference in London (supporting our own Pride of Irons who are nominated for an award) and met other fan groups from across the country.

We were at Westfield on Sunday announcing the lucky winner of our promotion with The London Pie and Mash Company.One of our members will win free pie and mash every home game.

The Season Ticket Waiting List is an issue that many have complained to us about and we continue to make good progress with our investigations into this and are encouraged by the support we continue to find here. If you are on the waiting list and continue to be frustrated by the lack of clarity around it, please reach out to us directly and we will discuss how we can help.

Progress is also being made with our investigations into Additional Seating at the stadium whilst we along with a number of other supporter’s groups await an update from the club regarding its partnership with SOCIOS.

We will have an update for you all next week on our Xmas bash.

We are also pleased to share that we are now formally engaged with both UEFA and the Government, with the support of the FSF, regarding the continued refusal of the club to meet with us as an independent supporters’ group.

On behalf of the committee, we wish you all a great week on the back of a cracking performance from the Hammers.-In a Champions League position.

Come on you Irons.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
From HU Committee


The hard working Hammers United Commitee need your help!
We have all heard the pub stories about the waiting list and all know it’s at best not fair.
We have taken up this issue on behalf of all West Ham Supporters but before we can challenge the club we need evidence.
Have you, or do you know anyone else who have been treated unfairly? And if so would you be prepared to speak up on have your example used?
Have you been on the list more than 2 years and not at any time been offered a Season ticket (full or half season)?
Are your contact details robust and up to date, and checked regularly for communication from the club?
Do you have any examples (which you can prove) of anyone being offered a Season Ticket before you who shouldn’t have?
If you are this person, or know them, Hammers United would like to speak to you/them urgently. You can contact us on FB or via our website.

www.hammersnited.com

With your help we can try and hold the club to account on this issue.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Not a huge fan of Hammers United. Maybe if all other splinter groups emerged United as Hammers United I would feel differently.
However Gavros nomination to the board , he may have been slated here, but he had the balls to attend and contribute. So fair play.
In relation to Mex - the WHO FUND genuinely got me out of a dark place. No exaggeration it has changed my life and how I care for my Mum now after being a shit son for 40 years. Gavros responded, nothing more , nothing less, mediated a transfer and Defjam the rest. He would have to be a complete loon to not support West ham , be on here loads and to create a fund that helps hammers in need. Credit where credit is due. PS As agreed despite initially only needing air miles, I have funds to put back in the fund. Thanks to all.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
I really think that you shouldn’t judge the character of a person too much by their posts on WHO. A lot of us act the cunt on here for fun. Personally, I don’t go as far as racism and stuff like that, but I guess some people do, but don’t mean it or are not actually racist or what ever. I was quite impressed how Garvos helped Peckham and that other guy and as they say actions speak loader than words. I’m sure if he really is a scummy cunt, he will be chucked out of Hammers United pretty darn sharp.

Re: Hammers United.-What do we want.
Lily you and me both.

It's hilarious that so many have given their two pence worth on here but didn't have the front to speak out at the meeting when it really counted.

It was such a well chaired and laid back meeting with no airs and graces. Everyone had a chance to speak and all points raised were given fair consideration. Gavros was there to be put down....but the rest is history.

I'd like to think that if it turns out he does a good job, some of his critics will graciously accept they might have judged him wrong but I don't hold much hope on that.
