  6. Q and a summary-- another broken promise

    Most of you will remember that Mr Martin said he would post a summary of the Q and A session held back in March on the OS,as a final part of his trilogy of blogs on the state of our football club. This Q and A summary has not been forthcoming and I suspect that there is more chance of France...

    South Korea 2-0 Greece EURO 2004 SEEMS AN AWFULLY LONG TIME AGO It’s hard to believe that Greece ever caused the European superpowers such headaches. Granted, they were never blessed with a generation of superstars, but they always had their composure, their organisation and their ability to...
  8. Would you have her courage?

    On Mr B's "Pictures of Birds" thread, Boris posted up a picture of a lady called Sarah Jane Howe. It was a bit different from the others on the thread because, as Boris pointed out, she seemed to have no nipples. Below is her story - and as asked in the thread title, would you have her courage?

    Sell The Hammers Now

    Pride. It's the one thing that no man can take from you. Icelandic bank Straumar, who control CB Holdings, who in turn control West Ham, are a proud group of men. They're not going to be messed around by two ****ney chancers like David Gold and David Sullivan. The word on the street is that...

    Administration is not the end of the world

    Administration isn't the worst case scenario. In fact administration, although unpleasant could even be a positive if we can restructure and pay off our debts.
