Protest March Planned On Saturday
Tuesday, 25th Feb 2020 16:11

West Ham Fans are planning a protest march ahead for the fixture against Saints on Saturday as they strive to get democratic elections to the club's official supporters board.

If you don't like the club owners don't just whinge get out there and protest is the motto of West Ham supporters and after an off the cuff non matchday demo at the London Stadium a few weeks ago, a matchday demo against Everton and the pre planned protests at Anfield last night there will be more protesting before their game with Saints on Saturday.

The Unhappy Hammers are planning a protest march along Newham Greenway near their old ground to the London Stadium before they play us. Around 900 fans staged a protest against Sullivan and Gold before the Everton game last month amid growing unrest among a section of supporters suggests that this will be bigger as more fans become disgruntled.

Last night, protests continued as West Ham lost 3-2 at Liverpool. One banner read: “Run like a circus — Owned by clowns”. Another stated: “GSB out — Sold a dream, delivered a nightmare.”

Their beef with the club is not a lack of investment, the Hammers have spent £200 million on transfer fees in the last two years, but the way the club is run.

When things don't go the way " the fans want " there are always demonstrations.
There have beeen a few at SMS in recent years, and now it's the Hammers turn.
Their owners always seem to buy " older experienced players " (read has-beens) or spend ridiculous amounts on unknown foreign players who just can't cut it in the Prem.

I always feel that games against West Ham are full-blooded, no nonsense affairs with no holds barred..and throw in a few injuries and yellow cards to boot. Looking at the performance they put on against Liverpool I'd say they are far from finished and are likely to be a handful - whether their fans appreciate them - or not. I'd take one point today and save the travel, and if we do get all 3 points we will probably have deserved them.

The players are the ones they have to survive with , and if the owners made some bad buys with the players ..IMHO... they made a worse one when appointing the manager.

Totally agree, W Ham were excellent against Liverpool yesterday and unlucky not to get at least a draw. We will be hard pressed to contain them, especially Antonio who is a really excellent player, would have him in our squad in a heartbeat.

West Ham fans are so fickle. I seem to remember they were protesting 2 years ago when we went there and lost 3-0 under Mark Hughes. Their board has invested money that we can only dream of. The problem is the fans themselves and tha London Stadium which isn't a football ground. The two together create an atmosphere at home which isn't conducive to winning.
