After hearing the news tonight that Olympic Park Legacy Company(OPLC) favours the West Ham bid against the Tottenham, l just hope for Newham residents sake, West Ham Utd don’t get relegated from the premiership! As the club will have great difficulty filling the ground without big fixtures like games against Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.
Unusually for the UK, this bid has been underwritten by the local authority arranging a £40 million loan with some suggestions concerns about how the decision has been made. Quite honestly the authorities should have waited till the end of the premiership season to know that reality.
If it does stand, West Ham Utd fans better get used to watching the game with binoculars!
