Irons Cluedo e-mail truly the pits!

cluedoSometimes words are not enough!

And the decision to send this automated e-mail to fans this morning given the shocking defeat against West Brom is one of those occasions.

It appears to be the sickest joke imaginable and someone needs the dressing downs of dressing downs.

Look at the words, look at the beaming face and ask yourself: “Did the person in the West Ham marketing department responsible for this debacle actually have a clue what they were doing or saying?

ClaretandHugh’s phones haven’t stopped since this shocking piece of promotional activity took place as it was a proper smack on the face for all those who travelled to the midlands yesterday.

It beggars belief that anybody could dream up such a heading and associate it with the last piece of merchandise in the world that should have been promoted.

For nobody this weekend inside the club appears to have a clue.

  1. Sometimes in life it is better to laugh than cry at things.I too wasted my money yesterday going to The Hawthorns,but can have a wee smile at this as an ironic twist of fate.Maybe April 1st came early.

  2. Yes, calm down – life’s too short to worry about this sort of rubbish!

  3. Karen Brady.

  4. It’s so bad it’s comical! 🙂


  5. Why the suprise? The club is following its Manager more than its owner now they have lost control to him.Expect more of this not less

  6. It was probably BFS ( sorry conkerpot ) with the Nolan in my nightmare,
    Or was it BFS ( sorry conkerpot ) with his Nous in the Island of tippy tappy football
    Who cares it needs something to put a smile on our fans and if you can’t laugh at that you just aswell cry.
    Come on HUGH it’s no worse than our tee shirts last year to windup the Spurs fans and look what good that did us first game of the season maybe someone will get there just reward latter ?

  7. I know where the silverware is, its in the trophy cabinet with all the rest of BFS’s cups through the years . . .
