The Boleyn Arms - Windy Wednesday


Welcome to The Boleyn Arms - a West Ham United virtual public house, and a West Ham Institution.

Now in our new home on WHU 606, this is a pleasant hostelry is open for Hammers/Irons to discuss matters relating to football, West Ham United or anything else.

WUMs are barred from this establishment, although friendly fans of other clubs are welcome to come in and enjoy the claret and blue atmosphere.

Please do not deface the pictures of players past and present, that adorn the walls in this establishment (and that includes the one of Jimmy Neighbour, R.I.P.) As with the rest of this site, have fun but please avoid anything racist, sexist, homophobic and any comments that promote negative racial or cultural stereotypes, whether said in jest or not.

Please also bear in mind that users of all ages are on this forum. Therefore please refrain from any content of an adult nature or anything unsuitable for users of all ages.

So come in and join us, as we enjoy another Premier League season and our journey under Messrs. Gold, Sullivan Brady and Norman Wisdom continues onwards and back up where we belong!

In previous opening periods of this thread, originally established on BBC 606 by V8Iron under the title "Let's all sign up to this" on the 17th May 2007, we have now achieved postings totaling 139,539 (BBC 606 total) + 171,123 = 310,662 and counting.

On March 8th 2013 the 250,000 milestone was passed with a post by Woosie. Well done Woosie and all who have contributed to this Hammer's Institution since May 2007 - Well done guys!

On the weekend of 12th/13th April 2014 with the posting of the 35th comment The Boleyn Arms have passed our post total on BBC 606 well done guys V8 would be proud!

Now entering our eighth year, it gives me great pleasure to re-dedicate this plaque. To those who on BBC 606 defended this place through the deadly days of the Spring and Summer of 2007 .... their names will however live on here forever; though some are lost to us now:
VEight Iron
Half-Egg Half-Biscuit
Spanish Hammer

  • Today's thought,

    Retailers who have branded carrier bags charge you 5p for the privilege of allowing you to essentially advertise their brand is in essence illegal, surely we as the public should charge retailers a fee for advertising? Or raise a petition in favour of waving carrier bag tax?
  • I think they are charging you 5p for the bag. If you don't want the bag, don't buy it.

    It's not a tax, is it. It's a price for a product.
  • MrsGrey I think there is a legal issue as this news item points out...

    So MJ, car manufacturers can't legally charge you because the car has their logo on it?. Sportswear manufacturers are acting illegally by charging you for trainers, trackies etc with the Adidas or Nike brand on it.

    Somehow, I think the 'newspaper' may have got it wrong.

    Oh, actually, with a closer look, I see it is in the 'Have Your say' section of the paper and is not a news item at all. Which means it is essentially Disgusted of Tunbridge Wells has written in in green ink, or possibly CAPS LOCK ON!
  • Leave Tunbridge Wells out of this ;lol

    Oh well guess its fish and chips every night then. Atleast the local chippy gives free carier bags.
  • Surely they wrap em up in the Mail MJ? ;lol
  • ;diop I hope not.....I don't want my food contaminated ;wotsits
  • And what do those nice men do that carry out the home deliveries?

    Answer....I've seen em recently put the goods in carrier bags! And charge the client accordingly I would imagine.
