    Having been in a similar situation of owners vs. fans, what’s your take on the issue with the West Ham fans yesterday?
    Interestingly, I went onto a west Ham forum and they’re all saying how much they have lost respect for Noble after he pushed the fan. They say he’s lost the fans after that as he should understand their frustrations.
    All seems like one big cesspool... oh, and they have Moyes as well.

    From the West Ham forum.
    ‘Was Noble right to do what he did?’
    ‘No. No he ****ing wasn’t. I’ve stuck by him this season when all around me were coating him off. Well **** him, he’s meant to be one of us, the last link between us and them. He’s broken that today. Shame. **** him.’

    I think they're idiots. Most of them seemed delighted when the move was being hailed as a financial masterstroke. But they've always had a right wing section of the fans who act like Cockney stereotypes, can't cope with the fact they're no longer near their old dad's favourite jellied eel store and ramble on about a West Ham style that only existed about fifty years ago for no more than a decade.

    Now that they have moved away from Upton Park, Nathan's Pie and Mash is having a hard time in getting much business

    Nah. Cred to them who raise their voice to get it right. They are "only fans" but that sound like shit action from the Club and it is right by the fans to voice their disspointment. Not much more they can do than show their frustration, and hopefully the Club listens.

    Several of the 'fans' organising the protests are card carrying members of the BNP.

    The Hammers fans should stop moaning and remember how lucky they are.

    They all have good jobs, while we Scousers are all signing on for the dole.

    West Ham fans are 90% scum - they're largely flat cap wearing knobheads. Send them back to the Championship where they'll get reunited with other sets of dickheads like Leeds United, Millwall & Brentford.

    There are different groups involved. My understanding is one of them (Real West Ham Fans Group) is mostly ICF folks & that is where the BNP connection comes in. But the Independent group, who were the ones who went ahead with the march, are supposedly more "left wing" (I use the term loosely, as the accusation against their leader was he campaigned for the right wing labour mayor of London). They have actually been threatened by the ICF lot, who "officially" called off the protest when they got into bed with the owners.

    I have no idea which, if any, of the groups orchestrated the pitch invasions & in ground protests.

    I have some sympathy here (obv not for ICF/BNP dickheads), as they find themselves in a similar situation we were in, when direct fan action was a large factor in the removal of G&H

    Don't get me wrong. I have no sympaty for them as People. But as fan's of a Club they should raise a voice over how the Club is presenting themselves. The Club is nothing without fans. I have no sympaty for in example Leeds but I find it offensive that clubs are run across the fans wishes and into ground by stupid owners. I hate it.

    Would be nice if they got docked 3 points for the incident.  Put them right in the relegation zone.

    Agreed. Brilliant to see the fans rising up against their only remaining idol, Mark 'Brexit' Noble

    Half of them have been on his back for ages; he got booed off the pitch when he was subbed against us last year, in one of Bilic's last games, and loads wanted him dropped this time last year.

    I love my bulldogs but I hate the way every time you see them on a TV vet show they're always brought in by a skinhead with a union flag tattoo on their face
