I agree with you about the calibre of people running the two clubs. Chalk and cheese come to mind.

But , come on Tel, take off those C & B spect. "Not a lot between the 2 clubs "? In attendance terms probably not but in historical achievements ?

The only trophy we have won as often as Spurs is the old ECWC. We have to face facts they are a far bigger club than we are. When I first started watching football there was a big 5. Manchester United ( even though their team in the early 70s was crap), the two Scouse teams , Arsenal & Spurs. We were always lumped with Chelsea to be regarded as the 3rd biggest London club.

And what do Spurs use their stadium for 365 days a year when they aren't playing football on it? How much did we earn from Upton Park when it was still there ?

The dwarf and the dribbler are a pair of shysters. We all know that. But moving to the LS was a good move. Unfortunately, coming back to your point about the calibre of people running the club, the move was mishandled.
Spurs of the past,yes,a lot bigger,but at the time of G & S taking over,the gap was probably at it`s smallest between them.The difference now is,they are in a different world to us.

Spurs were always bigger than Chelsea,but they aren't now,are they?Chelsea are has big,if not even bigger world wise,than Arsenal.Money wise,Chelsea make more financially and that wasn`t the case 20 years ago.

With the right owners and Management,we could have been top dogs in London.

They gain an income,not just from football at the Stadium.If you listen to that fella on Football Finances,he said Spurs use that stadium 365 days of the year,
They have a restaurant and banqueting facility which obviously generates a lot of use. It's part of the stadium complex and I guess it is open every day. If we owned the LS we could maybe develop something similar but I can't somehow imagine people flocking to Upton Park for a top class dining experience had we stayed there, can you ?

Chelsea is now a bigger club than Spurs thanks to Abramovich and are a good example as you say of how a club can develop with the appropriate and correctly used level of investment. Manchester City is of course another example and Paris St Germain who were just another club before they were taken over.

Problem is West Ham have always been seen as a scruffy little East End club whereas Chelsea have a far more fashionable West London postcode, which does make a difference. It's one of the reasons I hate the label "working class club" that we always seem to be stuck with. Despite the fact there was a survey carried out a few years back that claimed we had one of the biggest percentages of season ticket holders with 6 figure salaries in the league.

West Ham fans are coming from all over.Many do not know The Greenway.
We will be putting up details of joining points but in the meantime can confirm that the Greenway is easily walked to from Plaistow and West Ham stations.We understand that some will struggle to walk the whole route and will join later.Possibly this will be by Pudding Mill Lane Station.
We will look at all the options and post arrangements accordingly.
See You There.

Good luck with the march fellers. I fly out on the 27th so will miss it.
Word of warning though. Walked it to the Brighton game and there was signs near the manor rd steps saying that some herberts with knives were threatening bike riders.
So leave your bikes at home. :)

You can then join us at the following points along the Greenway:
1. West Ham around 12.30pm. The entrance is a 3-minute walk from West Ham station.
2. Stratford High Street around 12.45pm. The entrance is a 1-minute walk from Stratford High street DLR.

Hammers United will have marshals at all pick up points. Our stroll will end at the Marshgate Lane entrance to the ground, where a few words will be shared.
We today call on not just our eleven thousand members, but on all members of all groups everywhere to join us. . . all West Ham Fans. . . All Hammers. . . United. There will be thousands there. The Press will be there in force and many thousands worldwide will see our message.
