Reliving the 80's today at home against Burnley. lost 3-0 and decided to invaded the pitch, protesting the charlatans sullivan,gold and brady and causing mayhem. One fan got floored by Mark Noble. FA could hit the club hard with points deduction for this.

There's something about the West Ham thing that concerns me, what with the Olympic stadium, the present owners and underlying stuff. Not my favourite club, about as popular in my household as Leeds and Cardiff. I think someone on here likes them, as I seem to remember a "robust" defence when talking about the club a few months back.

Fair play to the Westham fans they've been shunted off to that corperate non football stadium they did'nt want, the Porn gang probably promised them year on year improvement.

Yes that would be me Bees as I have a lot of Hammers mates both exiles and living up there. Non of them are Morris dancers I think herein lies your problem.

No, nothing to do with that Earwig. The club plainly have a weird thing going on, what with hugely increased attendances at the new stadium, and very dubious owners. Something doesn't add up.
Actually I prefer my morris men as women. There's a bunch up near your way, Sticklepath, I think. Cogs and Wheels, they're very enthusiastic. Use the very unusual pub by the Foundry. To be seen every Mayday at dawn up on the Moor above the village.

I find them the "We won the Word Cup & the West Aaam way" a bit cringeworthy tbh. when their supporters are easily among the mo, although I did feel sorry for Sir trevor Brooking sat in the stands. The club like to think they are football royalty forgetting their actual achievements and behaviour of the clubs owners and its supporters
The move to the Olympic Stadium has been little short of a disaster, its simply not a football ground.

Meh, tribe is a bit overplayed and continually manufactured. Self, family, pack and environment are far bigger natural drivers. I suupose large packs become herds and could be construed as twibes. But then that comes from someone who isn't really the herd sort. Not sure where bees fit in, not one of them either.
Just musing on another washed out wet morning waiting for a delivery
not intending to start the next conflagration. As Hugh says, the move to the stadium was pure fantasy and came about as a mish mash of several different locale, political and monetary expediences to give the whole Olympic thing some sort of token community involvment. It just doesn't suit what has always been regarded as one of the "family clubs", and is bound to cause tensions. I blame Seb Coe and his band of druggies, who really don't care a fig after the Olympic circus moves outta town. I remember one day Steve Ovett turning up at a kids project in Plymouth that I was working on. The battle between the two of them was far more than just that on the track, as great as that was to watch. And then Cram appeared as well, wow, that was probably the height of British athletics for me, and how I perceived it should be played out in an assumed Corinthian fashion. Wonder what happened ?
