You don't get what sport is about. There are always winners and losers.whu wrote: ↑Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:47 pmSo we become a Nottingham Forest, Leeds United or Stoke City and we take that without a whimper? All of the surrounding circumstances around our club mean that if we had even very average people running this club, we should never veer from top half of the Prem. That is not a false statement. Tell me why minimum top ten, given all facts surrounding our club, isn't something we should be vocal about?
When do people get angry? Never?
No bins emptied for six weeks and rats in your garden, you say 'it is what it is, I am a taxpayer like everyone else' and sit on your hands?
Why then, as a company employee, would you get a disciplinary if you underperformed? Your apathetic view 69 flies in the face of emotion and WHUFC supporters are amongst the most emotional and passionate, out there.
Life is about opinion but to not be vocal on what would be considered 'bare minimum' about the club you love, I make you and your ilk the ones to be called out. To simply come back with 'what does protest achieve' I can tell you as fact, it applies a level of pressure. You become an irritant. In any walk of life, nobody likes to be pressured or have an itch they cannot scratch.
Support West Ham United.
Support Hammers United.
Time for this board to move on, make a healthy profit, give the reigns to people with good business acumen, ambition and a determination to achieve success. Success in turn, gives maximum profit and customer satisfaction. Fact, as my mate says.
Used to be that when a club was not playing well, the supporters (hence the name) would get behind them and try and lift them. Now all they care about are marching across fields and making a name for themselves. Times change, egos grow. Fans rather than supporters.
Your comments about underperforming are hilarious. 90% of the owners in the football league would get a disciplinary for not meeting their objectives but that is sport and how it works.
When will Derby be marching that they are not in the top 5 of the PL (Former league winners after all)
When will Man Utd march because they are not in the top 2
When will Arsenal start marching because they are not in the top 4
When will Spurs fans start marching that they are out of the champions league
When will Everton fans start marching that they have not made the top 4 with that investment they made.
Did I miss the Villa and Fulham marches when they went down ?
Have Leeds been marching for 16 years ?
Are Sheff Wed Marching soon ?
Did you march after or before the Liverpool game when Lyall took us down or did you not care then ?
All these are clubs that have failed but its rare that they go marching every season because they didnt meet their objectives.
Its not Apathy, it is realism. These same passionate fans who were outsung by a World Athletic Championship crowd and complain there is no atmosphere ? These are the same fans that cannot work out that you need a buyer in order to sell or is your grand plan to ask the board to walk out and hand over the club for free by blowing up a few balloons. Good luck.
Call me out all you like but you lot have been protesting for years over Cearns, Brown, Bond scheme, Allardyce, the owners and what have you achieved then ? This irritant that you say you have become is taking a fucking long time to produce any results !
Do what you think will help but I think you are utterly deluded thinking that an average owner would guarantee keeping us constantly in the top half of the table. That has never happened in our history to be honest and it wont happen now.
I have never seen the demand of 'keeping us in the top half of the table' on any of the Hammers United posts. So basically if we finish below 10th then march if we finish above 10th then we are fine ?
The whining every time we dont win something or finish high enough is childish. We dont have a divine right to be in the PL or the top half. Many other clubs are not successful but we seem to be the only one that thinks that we have a right to be there.
