Fa cup v brum

Does anyone know why the fa cup game v Birmingham has been moved to a 12.30 kick off? It doesn't seem to be on television. I'm thinking of going but don't want to spend hard earned on a televised game.

Brum have an element of hooligans,so hence possibly the reason for an earlier kick off...if you go Red hope theres more of an atmosphere than the spuds midweek cup game,it was atrocious & a total waste of time & money!!

Cheers 65 I heard the same thing, but surely Cardiff would have been the same. It's my birthday and my son asked me too. So I leave the decision up to him. Now I've warned him. Thanks

Apparently it's earlier cos of T.V scheduling abroad??strange reason imo ,didnt know it would be such a big game in the likes of Kazakhstan!!seriously though I know they used to have earlier games because of the threat of trouble...how times have changed eh!

The tickets are dead cheap, you can get a corporate entertainment place for 60 sqiud! In theory we should beat these guys, they will bring a big support so the atmosphere will be great and probably an old skool kick up so no excuses folks... get a long and enjoy the ride!!!!

Feel sorry for their fans, they are entitled to 15% I thought?

Regrettably, as I said before, I wasn't at the Spudz game but my arguments still remain. The LS was rocking on saturday... oh sorry, you were not there but I bet it sounded great on radio London. I'm West Ham for 50 odd years, a number of which as a season ticket holder and I will continue to support them by putting my money where my mouth is by following at home, away and very soon... overseas. In Pel I trust. Sorry you are not coming on the ride 65 but good for you, stay at home and complain when the day dawns and you cant get a ticket to see your club, enjoy and spend the pennies you saved wisely. Or, embrace your club and get on board.

I've been offered season tickets & now half season tickets & have declined so won't be any complaints from me!! For the record I've also followed the hammers for 50 year's & was a STH back in the day...

But i always respect your opinion...makes me laugh though the assumption that there is 50,000 on the ST waiting list.
I didnt renew my membership this season & didnt even know if i was still on the list,but ive had so many texts & emails this week asking me if i want a half-season ticket that im almost expecting sully to knock on my door clad in santa claus outfit (with obligatory cuban heels of course!!) & offering me a cut price season ticket for crimbo!!Sorry sully no more room left at the inn...

Likewise 65, you talk a lot of sense on here, we just have to accept that when it comes to the LS we will just have to differ :o)

I totally agree about the so called waiting list, was originally 30K and now has shot up to 50K! Its just all spin. That said, I still think we are a big club. My rationale being that when ever we are on a winning streak the numbers looking for tickets are staggering. It was a fact that for the 2006 cup final we could have sold the allocation 10 fold. The touts knew it, they were charging £800 for tickets in the Liverpool end and £1200 in our end!! Supply and demand.

Question for you... any young Hammers in the family? What about them, they need you to show the way. The Boleyn is gone, the LS is our home and its our duty to see that the next generation gets to follow our team. i became a grandpa 14 months ago, I cant tell you how much I long to bring him to the LS. He has the kit, track suit the lot ... and his fathers family are Gooners!!!

Please see that your phone has plenty of battery 65, when Suli comes round in those sling backs I expect you to have it on film and share with all!!! Keep the faith buddy... Come on you Popcorn eating Irons!!!!

You are right the demand for tickets for the 2006 final was staggering.Took both my son & daughter to the Boleyn from a very early age they were 4 & 6 & absolutely loved it from the word go,we would go to at least 10/15 games every season together.theyve been to the L.S & like me they feel the same...i actually remember my daughter saying to me in the farewell season "i dont want to move!!" & i said "weve got to at least give it a go" hence my disappointment...i maybe in the minority but i actually miss the old place more as time goes by...it has gone but i have great memories,my children now are well into their twentys now & being a grandad in the not too distant future is a possibility,will i take them to the L.S?? Depends if there are changes,but i wont hold my breath!!

Your son and daughter will be Hammers for life as will their kids one day. The next generation in the years to come will ONLY know the LS, this will be their home and its our duty to see that they enjoy the highs and mainly lows of following our club. You know Im an optimist and I am convinced things will get better or what are the options? Support another artificial successful top London club? Adopt another smaller homely passionless club from the Home Counties? Daggers, Chelmsford, Colchester, Southend, Barnett, Brentford, Gillingham, Maidstone, Aldershot, Wimbledon... Just heard my Dad and Granddad turn in their graves! I was born a Hammer and wouldn't have it any other way. I also have memories of Dad and Granddad moaning about the owners the Cearns in exactly the same way we bad mouth the porn dwarfs, somethings just never change! I also have great memories of the Boleyn, and some pretty shocking ones as well where the atmosphere was libraryesque and when losing at half time all the ol muppets in the East Stand would be singing "what a load of rubbish". Its gone, regretable but a fact. I embrace change as a way of life, job, family, even bloody politics the lot...I really hope you will as well one day as I feel your pain. Keep the faith buddy... It will get better!! Embrace the Popcorn, COYI's!!! :o)

Your right the next generation of hammers will only ever know the L.S. "if" I ever change my opinion on it you will be the first to know !! ;)
Just to add I witnessed many,many poor performances at the boleyn.but you always had the banter & plenty of comedians over there...many a time I never even use to watch the game the banter to & fro was so good,thats what is lacking at this place,is it to do with the size of the place & 20,000 or so new supporters?? Probably!!i get it if the L.S is probably good when we are winning but it needs to be good win,lose or draw imo,it might happen & if it does I'll possibly change my opinion!!

I don't really care whether we are big club or not. It just feels like we may be a lot bigger than we even realise. Having said that for me we were always a REAL club. Never flash, a strong camaraderie with each other. It's been watered down with the move, that's why when watching the Ipswich friendly I almost missed our winner as the banter in the away end was old skool West Ham the real highlight of the day.

Now that the days are shorter and the mercury in the thermometer struggles to to get up in the morning ( a bit like all of us and in many ways!) I notice that there are a few nasty bugs about causing all sorts of distress and upset. One in paticular is rather debilitating and guaranteed to give a feeling of sickness and possibly the squits! Like its rather similar sounding Norovirus which is unplesant and can lay you low for a couple of days, the other one seems to have the ability to upset on a weekly basis, of course I am discussing here the nasty Lawrovirus. This particular bug strikes usually on a Friday and give an immediate feeling of anger and frustration when I find that yet again this bug has predicted yet another loss. For instance a team which has three consecutive victories, has scored three times in each game, playing a team at the bottom of the league with one win. Prediction, a 2 - 1 loss! Now I love the Beeb, having sat through the shite on foreign chanels worldwide with the endless adds, it is always a pleasure to come home, but then there is the dreaded Lawrovirus each week sullying another day. What is it with this twerp? Why is his predictions for us always negative? Why does the Beeb put up with him and where do they find the other non-entities who co-forecast? (having said that they seem to get more right)
Anyway another week and another dose of Lawrovirus, excuse me I'm just off to the bog!

imagine him on christmas morning what a miserable so n so he is,i would not mind if half his predictions had logic behind them but no they all seem predicated on his personal bias towards certain clubs and we all no how he feels about us....i predict if we win tomorrow it will barely raise much note in the media but if we lose watch out for banner headlines etc.
