800px-West_Ham_United_FC.svgClaretandHugh has decided today – having seen the early voting figures – that the result of our poll on whether the club badge should be changed will be sent to the club owners and the media department.

As things stand there’s a near fifty/fifty split in opinion and we firmly believe that’s not enough for the club to be making radical decision over re-writing part of the Irons history.

Just over 50 per cent are opposed to any change whilst 42 per cent plus say it’s dependent on what changes are proposed. Only 6.29 per cent believe it’s time for a change.

A noticeable poll trend is that things rarely change much after 500 have voted and so far  a total of 763 votes have been cast.

We will wait for another 24 or 48 hours before ending the poll and forwarding the result to the powers-that-be.

Our view currently is that with that half the fan base opposed to change the club should decide that as it’s not broke it won’t be fixing it.

We urge you to VOTE NOW! http://poll.fm/4tsui
