In the January transfer window we sold one of our top scorers to a relegation rival and replaced him with some fella from Preston who was a barman three years ago. This was about the fourth transfer window in a row where they'd told us they were going to sign Messi and we ended up with a free transfer full back. Lots of people are not happy with the stadium, investment, etc etc. A group calling themselves "Real West Ham Fans" start up and say they are going to bring together opposition to the board and get them out / start talking to them. They are run by old hoolie faces, startup meeting is in the Boleyn etc. etc. They collect about £25k in donations to pay for "fliers and hearses". They propose a march on March 10th to show dissatisfaction or whatever. By this time a number of other groups are involved like the longstanding supporter group WHUISA and the main forum KUMB. Everybody is very much of the "we're not stopping till they're gone, you can't trust em" mindset. They were talking thousands of people. The club call a couple of meetings to speak to them, the second of which is very short notice and only RWHF and WHUISA can attend. RWHF suddenly say that their demands have been met and the march is off. (Brady said that they'd maybe look at the badge and keep the memorial garden properly). They then get absolute dog's abuse across all social media and get accused of taking bungs and all sorts. The other groups say "hang on, we didn't say anything about it being off, we're still on" Which then means that Mr Swallow (one of the two original RWHF founders) comes out with his statement that all the marchers are left wing extremists and antifa hijacking the march and that if anybody marches through "their Manor" the ICF are going to bang some heads. Half of the fans believe him cos they think hooligans are somehow people to look up to and the other half are all like "what the fuck is this batshit mentalness?" There are rumours about why this is happening. Either they have been paid off, or there is another good reason for the change of heart or they are actually telling the truth. One rumour is that the club agreed to donate money to a young hammer fan who is very ill if they agreed to stop the march (which comes from their own minutes). The leftist connection seems to come from one member of WHUISA being quite happy that Sadiq Khan was elected mayor and Antifa having a meeting in (another) part of London. Whether they are stupid enough to think that or it's just a really stupid cover story I don't know. And then this evening somebody else has said that lots of "Swampy wannabes" tried to sign up for his group and AS has said that WHUISA were texting the stadium operators from the meeting. Tldr: it's a ridiculous shitfest and probably the lowest point I can remember to be a west ham fan. Let's see what happens on Saturday. If this carries on then it could be well dodgy.
