For goodness sakes, it’s not rocket science – sit on the seats, get the licence – do what you like
Jackie Gold nailed it with this tweet and there’s really not much more to say – except by those who like a row for its own sake: Read the message she’s sending, get it and for God’s sake park your arses!
It really is so simple. Once the licence is in place the fans can get on with their lives again whilst allowing the club to get together with the stadium operators and hopefully sort out a situation which may better suit those who want to stand during games as they did at the Boleyn.
Snide remarks about the board merely wanting cash from another 9,000 season ticket holders are nonsense and baseless. They also ignore that another 9,000 Claret members of what we like to call the West Ham Family will be allowed in to watch their team every week. Bad bad attitude.
Myself and Sean have held different views on this since it arose and here’s what I wrote on the ClaretandHugh Facebook Forum a couple of nights back.
All the fans are asked to do is obey the rules? – Why is that a problem? We are supposed to do that in life. Yes, work to get stupid ones revoked but in the meantime we can’t have anarchic behaviour
Sean and many others see standing as part of their football match day experience but the associate editor of ClaretandHugh understands Jackie Gold’s message that we want to get the licence once and for all and get 9,000 more fans into the London Stadium and to quote her then “do what you like.”
Yes we must consider senior citizens, infirmed, disabled fans and the rest and we are pretty sure that will be sorted once the licence is in place – Jackie gives a huge clue for goodness sake with the words: “Then do what you like.”
So perhaps the abusive tweets can now stop and we can allow 9,000 more Hammers in with a little less selfishness and a bit more thought for the future of our great club.
Let’s behave ourselves eh …and move on!
