Some Questions From Austria

ballestererDear West Ham fellow supporters,

the Austrian football fanzine “Ballesterer” is going to publish an article on the credit crunch and its impact on football. Unfortunately, the Hammers seem to be an almost ”perfect example” of these impacts. 

Hans-Georg, the author, would like to obtain opinions of English Hammers supporters concerning the development of the club since the “Icemen” had taken over at West Ham United. I think Hans-Georg would be very pleased if my readers would leave some of your thoughts on the issues below as comments on this blog. I am going to forward all comments that I will receive until Monday evening to Hans-Georg.

These are Hans-Georg’s questions, but feel free to raise other issues as well:

  1. What did you expect when Eggy and BG came in?
  2. As the former chairman Terry Brown was not very popular with the fans, was everybody happy with the change of ownership?
  3. Whas the new manager Gianfranco Zola welcomed by the fans as he was a “Chelsea legend” and lacked experience?
  4. What do you expect from the new chairmen Sullivan & Gold?
  5. What were your worst fears during the past months?

    1. Quite a lot, they talked the talk but it stopped right there! You know what they say, if it’s too go to be true it probably is.

    2. TB public enemy number one. Even if PolPot had taken charge I would of been happy.

    3. Yes he was welcomed because the guy has charisma but his lack of experience is showing now.

    4. S&G weren’t my choice and I expect to be a championship side within two season under them. They like to run clubs on a budget and that doesn’t work in the Premiership.

    5. Worst fears? Going down, going bankrupt and doing a Leeds!
