ClaretandHugh followers have sent a clear message to the club that they place entertainment at Upton Park over results.

In an exclusive poll run by the site we asked ‘Should West Ham achieve results by any means or should the first priority be to entertain?’

And after a total of 713 had cast your vote it was a near landslide victory for those who believe that match day is all about being entertained rather than getting the result at the expense of all else.

Those voting in favour of ‘results’ totalled 258 which represented 36.19 per cent of the total vote.

Those opting for entertainment on the other hand totalled 437, which was 61.29 per cent – a near two to one vote in their favour.

There were just 18 don’t knows or 2.52 per cent of the vote.

The poll preceded another, launched by eleven West Ham websites which opened at noon on Thursday and attracted 4,000 votes in the first six hours.
