West Ham, the only thing he saved today was a fan from getting a hiding off Mark Noble. :)



Watching those stewards chase the idiot was like the ending to a Benny Hill show.

Apparently the stewarding was terrible and there wasn't a policeman to be seen either.

Was listening to 606 and the West Ham fans that phoned in said there are no police inside the ground for any of their games - think they said there is a dispute about the financing of it. The only police they see is at the tube station.

They also said that this idiot got back into the stands, as the stewards gave up but he was dealt with by the fans.

Yeah, I think that's right about the police. Something to do with who had to pay for it, you'd think they could afford it, they're paying next to fuck all else for the ground.

Think they will now either have to make the decision themselves and/or the FA will insist that they sort it out as a way to avoid more severe punishment.

Heard the stewards were warned to stand down. Moyes must have thought he'd seen it all with the grim reaper!

On the news here that England is boycotting the world cup due to the Russian incident.

True or wha'?

He tried again. "Going to watch the match this afternoon then?"

Ford glanced round at him.

"No, no point," he said, and looked back out the window.

"What's that, foregone conclusion then, you reckon sir?" said the barman. "Arsenal without a chance?"

"No no," said Ford, "it's just that the world's about to end."

"Oh yes, sir, so you said," said the barman, looking over his glasses this time at Arthur. "Lucky escape for Arsenal if it did."

I'm pretty sure the issue with policing at the Olympic Stadium is down to a requirement to install some electonic gadgetry to facilitate the use of Police radio inside the ground, as their radios don't work properly in there. West Ham's owners have flatly refused to pay for it, saying that it's either down to the police to get their own radios working in there or down to the landlords to stump up the cash to have the required cabling installed.
IIRC, the row is all over something like 100k for the work to be done, which is pocket change for a premier league club, especially one that has had a brand new stadium almost gifted to them for pennies.

So if you plan to commit a crime, you know where to do it.

Shows you where they are as a club. Pretty ridiculous.
