Manager repeats back the team message

David Moyes was frustrated when he was asked about the West Ham protests planned for Saturday.

The manager told reporters assembled at Rush Green this afternoon “I’m getting asked this question every week now. I keep saying this: the best chance for this team and this club to win is for everyone to be together, positive in the stadium and support the team. We need it. We need decisions to go for us as well. We need to be strong. My message is positive, be with the team. Stick with the team because the team needs you badly.” 

Hammers United Joint secretary Stephen Cross has penned an article for the Guardian ahead of tomorrow’s Green stroll protest. The full article which can be found at https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/feb/28/why-west-ham-fans-are-protesting-against-board-saturday  sets outs the reasons why the supporters’ group is protesting tomorrow.

Meanwhile Villa fan and Telegraph journalist Matt Law has written another piece in the Telegraph after speaking Hammers United chairman Paul Colborne and WHUISA chair Sue Watson.

It starts “The supporters group responsible for the protests against West Ham United co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, and vice-chairman Karren Brady, hope over 5,000 people will attend Saturday’s ‘stroll’ towards the London Stadium ahead of the vital game against Southampton. This is the third protest organised by Hammers United, who have a membership of 12,000, and it is anticipated to be the largest so far with fans flying in from Italy, Finland and Malta.

It is backed by the West Ham United Independent Supporters Association, which has a 4,000 membership, and there is already a further protest being planned by Hammers United to take place ahead of the Wolverhampton Wanderers home game on March 15th”

  1. Look I’m not a surporter of the protesters as I’m not keen on the Hammers CEO Lady Brady? I’m sort of in the middle as my feelings go . Ok the two chairman Sullivan and Gold are fans of West ham having lived or worked in green street or thereabouts. They have owned the Hammers 10 years now and IMHO There time here has to me been like the the nursery rhyme the grand old Duke of York ” when they were up they were up and when they were down they were down and when they were half way up they were neither up or down ” sounds like the 10 years they’ve been here? Well the protesters IMHO have had enough of what was by moving to the Olympic fish bowl not the dream ticket promised and so forth and so forth? Maybe as I’ve aged I’ve learned to accept that which I can’t change, and accept that, that has changed ?? We are never going back to Upton park? But something has to change or the troubles will carry on and on and Messrs Gold and Sullivan cannot go on being Ostriches by hiding their heads in the sand and hope it all goes away?? A big change IMO would be to get a new CEO the one we have at present is not a fan of the club and has gone out of her way to copy her team Arsenal like the Emirates stadium with all our trophies won displayed on the gantries the flag waving before the team comes on the club class catering ect not original to me and other west ham people who have been coming for years. We need a full time CEO who for a start takes a vested interest in the Hammers history ect and not some one to sell a new badge and corporate finance. We need someone to do due diligence on other players and take a more active role in running the club as in pains me to say like Levy at Spuds ?? He pulls the purse strings and runs the club like its his personally. Brady has to many fingers in other pies to do the one important position at West Ham we need a full time CEO TO OPERATE OUR TEAM TO WHAT EVERYONE WANTS A SUCCESSFUL AND HAPPY CLUB AND LET’S GO FORWARD AND NOT FIGHT ONE ANOTHER BUT THE OPPOSITION
    KEEPING THE FAITH C.O.Y.I an

  2. Yippee! Let’s support the team by protests outside the ground and protest articles in papers on the day. How all this helps the club avoid relegation beats me! We go down and I know who I will blame!!!

    • You really do not get it, do you? This is not about one season, it is about the long-term future of West Ham United. If you’re happy with the metamorphosis into West Ham London, then carry on supporting the owners. If we get relegated, look at GSB – not Hammers United.

    • Yeh graham. I’m sure it wouldn’t have anything to do with our owners selling half our squad in the summer and not replacing them, the 11 players who aren’t worthy of wearing the shirt or the fact we have rehired the most unemployable man in football.

  3. Graham, if the fans & atmosphere were to blame for poor performance, then the opposite would be true too – the fans & atmosphere at UP, would surely have bought us many many trophies over the years….but they didn’t, did they?
