Thanks for all the cash - West Ham 2016/17

    So, after the most important season in our history, it is time for the next one.

    It's all change at West Ham - moving to a new stadium funded almost entirely by the taxpayer (we don't even pay for the corner flags, can you believe it?) with massive TV screens on the outside (paid for by your taxes) showing Payet free kicks in an endless loop, and state of the art retractable seating on the inside (cheers for the help!). We've sold 52,000 season tickets (who said we'd never fill it?) and David Sullivan has even got himself his own miniature Iron Throne from which to dangle his little legs (that was a tough bit to get through the bid process).

    On the newly laid pitch (god bless your generosity everybody) changes are also being made. Out go Alex Song (sob), Moses, Emenike and Jenkinson. In come Nordveit and Feghouli (the Algerian Zidane;)) on free transfers.

    With Dimitri currently showing the world exactly why he's the greatest player in football apart from Michail Antonio, and big talk of signing more players, what could possibly go wrong?

    Even Slaven has grown his beard back.

    Oh, and we're in Europe. Hopefully this time we don't go out to a bunch of Romanians.

    I thought it was important to show some gratitude. Everybody's worked really hard to give us the best chance at success. :)

    I know it's all going to go pear-shaped, of course it is

    Ha, who knows? But he loves us and we love him so I wouldn't be too sure he's off.

    Yeah, I'm only taking the piss. I hope he stays. At least in the Premiership anyway. And with you if not to Arsenal;)

    MrSki Who am I to say you're wrong

    Normally players go from Arsenal to West Ham when they are put out to grass.

    Hope you have a good season in your new home. :thumbs:

    A Pub called The Plough at Swan Wharf was Advertising themselves as the new pre-match bar.

    Craft beer and pie 'n mash by the canal. I think they should buy the Boleyn pub carpet to balance things out a bit.

    You have to pay £10 Membership fee for the right to go to Rib Man at Truman's Brewery and its supposed to be sold out already.

    Only a month before Juve!

    Yeah, I got two already and it sold out while I was waiting for details for a third. They say there are going to be more released soon.

    So, we signed Feghouli and Fletcher and Tore.

    Payet says he loves us and isn't leaving.

    And we've got either some Belorussians or Slovenians in the Euro.


    The guy who said we'd signed Fletcher about two weeks before it happened has said that we've also signed Bacca. Have to wait and see.

    First game on Thursday 4th August now. So I can't go. And the first arse on my new seat will not be mine. Grr.

    Tony Carr all over the papers. A £14,000 pay off for all his work.
    Does not seem all that fair to me.:hmm:

    Shabby when you consider that there will probably be squad players at West Ham on double that a week

    To be fair I think he's been pretty well paid for a while. I think it's more the manner of it, apparently he asked for a face to face with DS and Brady, was ignored and then got a letter from HR.

    And the article from Dave Sullivan Jnr was absolutely awful. Putting his salary details and all sorts.

    It's been handled terribly.
