how to ruin a football club

This isn't just about being relegated that happens we get on with it but when you get owners like ours who profess to love the club and saved it from ruination then you have to wonder what they think they are doing now? they tore the heart out of supporters by making the move to the athletics stadium turning us from home owners into rentboys overnight...made big noises about getting better players in and then try to confuse fans with smoke and mirror figures on how much we spend whilst all the time making a tidy profit made on loans to the club at a healthy 6/7% return for themselves all the while the debt we are in seems not to be shrinking....they eventually find the balls to sack bilic something that needed doing in the summer and then bring in a manager few believe can help us but stick him on a 6 month contract only i mean its unreal isn't it? even billy smarts phoned up asking for tips on how to improve his circus...the reason behind all this of course in none of there fault nope its we the supporters who are to blame for not embracing the dream and getting behind the Team...teams of gestapo like flag snatch squads dispatched to away matches as well as home ones if you dont sit down we will throw you out we will cancel season tickets then oops we made a balls up so we will get the young boy sullivan to apologise for the mistake and get it reinstated....choose to take smaller allocation for away games why? and make it near impossible to qualify to get an away ticket unless you were born on the 3rd of the month during a full moon and like russian hats!...our chairmen/board are not and never will be football people they do not have a clue in that area.....they ruined birmingham and we are heading for the same fate make no doubt on that my friends...all we are is a business that by doing nothing you make money thats why they are in it and as soon as that goes so will they.....overpaying for players 6 month contract for manager its ridiculous everton after all there dithering got bfs in on a two year deal same a wba with pardew no 6 months there nope its 2 years....i'd say we are a laughing stock but we the fans are not it is those who supposedly no what they are doing who are doing that and what a fine job to....no home no passion=relegation and who suffers? certainly not the players they will be off first chance they get leaving us the fans with the wreckage of yet another pipedream gone up in smoke now that is very West ham indeed

You can understand the rich foreigner buying a 'toy' of a prem league club, throwing a bit of money about and messing around trying to turn it into something only he wants ala Hull or Watford etc. They don't understand the history, and they only want to be able to say they 'own' so and so. But with these guys we've got it beggars belief. Why did they even get involved in football clubs? They weren't pro players themselves as far as i know, although maybe Brady was. Why does that matter you ask? well because its fair enough if you want to buy a club with your cash if you have never been in football at any level before, that itself is fine, but then you don't proceed to go round acting like you want to control everything from manager choice, to transfer targets and dealings and ticketing etc…you get people in the know to do that. The guy at Hull was slated rightly so when he tried to change their logo and name to Hull Tigers, the guy at Cardiff was it who changed their colours likewise, but probably the biggest slur on club supporters has been our lot, selling off our historic home and renting one no one seems to like not even the players. It was all such a rush job too, did paying fans get a vote? were past players consulted? why was there never a mention of a revamp of U.P while we rent the L.S for two years or so? Its embarrassing to watch our nemesis in North London doing just that. Building themselves a shiny new White Hart Lane while renting Wembley. They've got it all to look forward too. what do we have now? Maybe its time to pack this prem league football stuff in anyway, its all a money making turd machine.

They're incapable of running a successful modern football club, And I believe they knowingly deceived the fans on the stadium & move,it hasn’t been done for the good of the club, risks were exceptionally high yet they still pushed on,and that pit bull in lipstick,needs to get of that apprentice,judging people on how to run a business, you couldn't make it up,could you,what do we have, out of date board, out of date manager,and most of our players past there sell by date.

I totally feel your pain Mcbikeman and agree with all your points however... Im feed up and bored with just blaming the idiots at the top I vent my anger on the clowns wearing the shirt regardless of ability or salary they take, they play with no heart, passion or regard for this once great club and its fans. The lack of quality in passing, control, vision, lack of pace etc etc I could go on... is pitiful.And come the end of the season said rats will leave the sinking ship. We need root and branch change, it starts when we go down with a clean sweep starting with the board and finishing with the overpaid mediocrity on the pitch. We are heading to be the New Leeds United :o(

There performances even in the games we won have been plodding & lethargic.....not good enough for a job in which you are well paid...they have no pride in what they are doing and just do not care....you get all the usual "we have to do better" "we no whats wrong and will work hard to put it right" but truth be told with our own eyes not one of them is standing up to be counted not one of them

Yes I cannot disagree with anything everyone has said. I wonder what the worth of those same players are now? Having said that they won't be good enough next year anyway. Sullivan hasn't got a clue. Bet he suffers from a napoleon complex.
