West Ham fans to march in March

The Real West Ham Fans Action group has raised £25,000 in a matter of days from an initial target of £20,000 to fund a march on the 10th March before the West Ham v Burnley game. The group have promised that any money that doesn’t get used for the peaceful protest will be going to Isla Caton fund.

The Action group’s Facebook page is now approaching 13,500 in numbers and the organisers are hoping that over 10,000 supporters turn up on the march to show their support against the current West Ham board. The group say they are liaising with local police to get the event officially authorised and they hope it will be stewarded by former Boleyn Ground stewards who didn’t move to the former Olympic Stadium.

A number of supporters groups have joined the Real West Ham Fans Action Group and are set to march together under the banner of West Ham Groups United. They are hoping to hire 20 hearses to signify the “death” of the club and its heritage and will lay wreaths at the London Stadium.

  1. Another pointless distraction in my opinion. The board know they aren’t well liked, all this will do is take focus off the job in hand, beating Burnley. The board will go when the time is right for them financially, and not a second before.

  2. Personally I’ll be attending the march, but think the 20 hearses are overkill – surely a couple would get the same message across and leave more £££ for the Isla Caton fund

  3. No interest and a complete waste of time. Chanting ‘sack the board’. They won’t sack themselves or put the club up for sale until 2023 or they have to pay windfall tax to the government. The hearse idea is just tacky and a waste of money. Why don’t we get on with supporting our team?

    • Agreed, this is just a distraction we can do without, do people not realise they won’t sack themselves, all the stadium stuff at the beginning of last season poored heaps of negativity on the club which didn’t help then and this won’t help now. Pointless!

  4. So stay schtum, stay up by the skin of our teeth and have it all again next year. And the next. And the………..I really don’t think they understand the depth of feeling. This may demonstrate just that. They will not sell until the tax penalties are much lower but perhaps they will improve things until such time as they do sell.

  5. This will just create more bad press which we can really do without right now! It’s the sort of thing which will get into the players heads, you can say all you like that they get paid a lot of money so it shouldn’t matter, but the truth is they are all human and it affects you. Its just likely saying you shouldn’t be depressed because you are rich, it’s just not how it works.

    If our supporters really feel they need to march against our board, then I really wish they would wait until the summer.

    Any one who goes along to this march, will only create more harm then good.

    I am also not a board lover, I just love this club, and I don’t want any more bad press in the newspaper. It will get to the players. I know you want best for your club too, but your not helping, its the wrong time.
