PPV Still In Place For Irons v Fulham!

The news that the entire ill thought out concept of PPV during the Covid-19 pandemic is under review with the intention of games being made free to air, as they were previously. The whole idea of having to pay £14.95 to see games not covered by the already exhorbitant charges made by Sky and Bt Sport has wrankled with supporters across the board.

Even club chairmen agreed at a 'virtual' meeting earlier today that the situation needed urgent attention, because in addition to their Sky and Bt subscriptions many thousands of fans still have their season ticket monies 'lodged' with their respective clubs, further fan alienation would see a widespread take back of funds that are essentially being loaned to clubs by their own supporters!

Unfortunately the reduction or entire removal of the £14.95 PPV fee will come too late for the Hammers derby match against Fulham at the London Stadium this Saturday evening, fans who hold season tickets will still have to pay the quite frankly outrageous price to see their team play, and many many fans are angry, very angry!

Perhaps the Hammers Board, known for their generosity when it comes to handing out massive wages to injury prone or overvalued players, might want to set an example by offering their fans an alternative way of viewing, namely by offering to provide the match free to season ticket holders or at vastly reduced fee of £4.95 to everyone. Much was made of the fact that Barclays Premier League stake holders didn't set the price of PPV, however there is nothin to stop a club from 'negotiating' a massive discount is there?

Fans of both Fulham and West Ham would almost certainly be OK with paying a fiver, and logistically and financially the deal would make sense to the Broadcasters because the take up would be massive compared with the amount of viewers who will be prepared to pay the excessive fee currently being sought.

It could be a win win situation, and one that the Hammers hierarchy should really looking to be proactively involved with. - Ed

www.hesgoal.com should work, but you can only relably watch in small screen mode, if you try to 'open up' to a full screen you get sent off to advertising sites, but more alarmingly in full screen mode you will be offered software updates, which you should most definitely NOT accept!

We are fortunate to be offered DAZN in Canada for Canadian $150 (around £87) for the whole Season. Includes all Premier League Games plus European Champions Cup, Europa Cup, The Carabao Cup plus Italian and Spanish Leagues and numerous other Sports. So yes PPV of £14.95 for just one match is outrageous!
