A pinch of salt but no return on the bottle

Ok two things, we didn't get off to a good start and as usual everyone's a manager and knows better than Bilic. It's the end of the world and all that. Being in my mid 50's and supporting the club for over 45 years through thick and thin, I've learnt to not get too worked up after 2 minutes. After all it's an occupational hazard being a West Ham supporter so I take it with a pinch of salt. Being objective I suspect Bilic won't see the season out, but what will be will be in the fullness of time.

What does get my dander up though is the harsh reality that we have sold our great stadium and are nothing more than tenants who can have all our branding and heritage removed at a moments notice. We've had to sacrifice the first 3 weeks and have consecutive away games because of the World Athletics Champs.

The notion that we are now a big player and chasing the top 6 in the Prem League is a misconception. Just because we have a 60k plus stadium which is all to plain to see is not actually ours, does not compute when we cannot compete in the transfer market. The reason we cannot compete is our owners are not rich enough despite their best endeavour.

When we sold our beloved Boleyn Ground their was no getting 2p back on the bottle. That's it we were at the point of no return. Now I know our owners see this as a long term investment and they will get their money back with interest, when they eventually sell on. Only then will we see a change. New owners brings new money. I don't know when this will be, but until then we must continue on the journey and get on with the fall out on a week to week basis. Not much comfort in that I know, but now we've bought the ticket we'll just have to see what the raffle produces....
