Ok maybe the time has come for come straight talk rather than constant moaning and insults from people who don’t agree with somebody else’s position.
I was told on a forum the other day that the last protest against Burnley worked because it saw the club stump up a load of cash for Pellegrini and some marquee signings.
Well if that WORKED I ain’t sure I want to see failure but then of course the bleat goes up they appointed the wrong man and that it’s down to them.
Easy, soft, available targets from people who are frustrated and angry and who reckon another protest is the way forward even though it’s not entirely clear what they are protesting about.
I assume centrally it’s that they want the board out even though there hasn’t been a single offer for West Ham United in 10 years and no more than one investor.
WHY IS THAT?
Because the days of buying Premier League clubs at exorbitant prices are gone. Potential club buyers look into the Championship to buy clubs much more cheaply and build them into PL outfits.
Not exactly happening in the case of Villa and various others who sunk back into the Championship after a brief flirtation with the top level.
However, ironically there maybe hope for the protesters there as the bids may come in for West Ham should we go down with all the carnage that will bring.
We have been called board lovers and mouthpieces which is the kind of stuff we would expect from frustrated and angry people who seem to believe we, as fans, are enjoying the current situation.
We aren’t and never had but in the absence of another buyer/s we are asking one very simple question: Give us an answer to the situation or at the very least an explanation of what is wanted.
In the meantime ALL views will be published respectfully on the website and were we the mouthpiece many would like to believe us to be that wouldn’t be happening.
Thanks to all those who have put their views for or against – this is an open forum for all and we understand all sides of the discussion.
But some answers or explanations would be good!
To protest is fine – democratic right and all that – but so is civility.
Sadly, I can hear it now: “Did Sullivan ask you to write that.” SIGH!!!!
