    Sort out the away supporters. Either move them or baffle the roof to stop the acoustics.

    Put all your energy into getting it right on the pitch, everything else will be easy if you sort that

    Got to be something they can do to make the concourse more appealing after the game. Even some bits that they convert into bars post match, brought out tables and stools, whacked some heat on. Wouldn’t take much to get people to hang around but when it’s freezing, the beer is crap and expensive nobody stays.

    The stuff on sale in the club shop is poor quality. With all my in laws (and now, despite my best efforts, my daughter) all being Hammers, I often have a look in the West Ham club shop to buy them presents etc and they have some really nice stuff. It would be good to get some better quality clobber on sale in there.

    What I'd really like to see though is greater engagement with the local community and greater engagement with the club's history. I like things like Juventus playing a friendly against Juventus B every year in the small town of Villar Perosa. I like the fact that Torino have built a small stadium, for training and reserve games, on the site of their beloved Filadelfia Stadium after years of it being derelict. I like it that Borsigplatz Square is the spiritual home of Borussia Dortmund- its where the pub that they were founded in is located and its where title celebrations are always focused. Something like that would be good, the building of traditions or identification of special places based on the club's history that the fans can engage with.

    There must be more they can do pre and post game imo to get people to the stadium earlier and staying later.

    Read that and the smell of tabs, hot pies and stale farts from the Fulwell end just wafted through my nostrils.

    I think KLD will be sensitive to that, he gets football in general and its importance to the area, at least I assume he does from what he's said and his background. What you're suggesting would be great and go down very well.

    It seems these days that environmentally friendly is the thing for clothes, I bought some Adidas tracky bottoms recently where the polyester is made from reclaimed ocean plastic, seeing as most sportswear is polyester that couldn't hurt as a sales angle. They can certainly do better than a single pic of a top on a shopped out mannequin with no description whatsoever.

    Don’t like the blocks of white seats. Don’t mind obviously the white seats in the writing but the blocks don’t seem right. Sign of me getting old when this sort of thing bothers me but cosmetically the ground should look the dogs bollocks.

    A few bomb proof waste paper bins might help, and show KLD that we appreciate his efforts by using them.

    remember 'helping' me mam and dad when a young'un, following the actions of the players, the eyes etc...as in this picture you would expect the ball to be coming in from a cross or corner and they are jumping to meet it, yet the 'result' would show no winners and the ball sitting down in the right hand corner.
