    The Leeds game last year was one of my favourite ever games at the Ricoh.

    Hopefully the West Ham game can be half of what it was.

    Lets support the lads.

    We could always swap where the home and away fans sit?

    Attendance will be lucky to reach 17,000. My guess is around 16,500.

    Fella that sells the 50/50 tickets in the casino said that West Ham have sold 8000 tickets and out of the 14 corporate boxes they have 8 of them.

    Don't know how full of shit he is, but that must be more than Leeds brought along last year.

    One of your favourite ever games at The Ricoh was a defeat? I know we're limited in the victories we've had there, but every one of them ranks above every defeat in terms of games I "liked"!

    It was also the end of Turner for us, playing on through injury and still being our best player on the day by miles..fantastic finish for his goal..yeah, there were moments of sweet joy that day, but it was a terrible ending. Are you a fan of tragic opera by any chance? :p

    West Ham will take their biggest away contingent for seven years when they travel to Coventry City this month.
    The Hammers visit the Championship strugglers on Saturday, November 19 and are taking more than 6,200 supporters to the Ricoh Arena.
    West Ham's previous biggest away turnout came in May 2004 when they took 7,400 fans to Wigan.

    Nice to know that we're such a big draw! And yet I keep hearing Hammers fans on 606 complaining out their direct style of football.

    Doubt they sold that many, nowhere to fit them, 6200 is every seat in the stand up to the netting, can't see them going further due to police and stewarding advice.

    they'll be in the home end, not like there's a shortage of tickets! they wouldn't know how many they'd sold in advance tho.

    What you’ve got to remember is that
    1) £24 a ticket is dirt cheap for these cockneys and 2) it’s an hour on the train.

    totally agree, living in blackburn, travelled down with a few rovers fans ( they were one of the few who bothered!) i was in block 15 and the atmosphere we generated was fantastic, the concrete steps were actually vibrating with the noise... been nothing to come close to it in games i had been to before or since.. showed what our support COULD be like with a good team out there.:claping hands:

    Midweek cup games are always the best.

    West Ham
    Newcastle

    both decent atmospheres aswell.

    Personally I find football thuggery cringey as fuuck, but I wonder if they'll smash The Rocket up again, like they did in the cup a few Yeats back.

    I shall take this ideology to bed.

    Did they? I remember it going off by the ground and the Hub but can't remember the rocket.
