Guest Post by Philtheiron- To ST at West Ham or not to ST at West Ham

A great comment, developing the conversation well, by Philtheiron on the last thread, which was certainly worthy of it’s own post, as follows: –

 

I think the whole ethos of season tickets and whether or not to attend matches is a very complicated one. Not to mention very emotive.

Apart from anything else it gets harder each year to justify the huge financial and emotional outlay each week/day when, as we get older and circumstances change, our priorities though never our loyalties can change.

So I can understand how giving up a season ticket especially over a point of principle or having to put family first, is not one that is ever taken lightly.

But we are and will always remain west ham⚒

As it has been mentioned before, last season has been a very difficult one what with one thing and another. And I have found it almost impossible at times to keep a clear head above water at times if I am honest. The constant barrage of negativity from the press and within hasn’t helped.

For there has been so much nonsense being written and spoken about the club, usually negative that it has been hugely frustrating. Also witnessing first hand each week the ongoing stadium problems and seeing little being done about it hasn’t improved matters either.

The stewarding, segregation and other ongoing problems etc has been akin to at times,to watching a huge train crash unfold right in front of you but without being able to do a thing about it. As I have said, all hugely frustrating.
