West ham are a commercial business so good on them for being able to negotiate it.

Not sure what London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) were doing in agreeing to it though.

Think it's about 55k after conversion but if they get relegated it will be less than half full.

Why does a club like West Ham need a 55k ground? It's ridiculous. Kit stealers.

aye tbf it's a great deal for them ain't going to say they're wrong for nabbing the opportunity exactly, but if it does turn out the costs to even run the place are higher than rent (and public paying to pay for match security) then as a goodwill gesture a higher rent to at least make a break even would be nice.

LLDC just desperate for someone to use it no doubt, now it'll be in televised matches all season and they can say it has a use and is worth the cost etc.

With Bilic at the helm, at least it's bound to be entertaining. Way more than it would be with Allardyce, anyway.

But, yeah, Olympic stadiums make awful footballing arenas. Dreadful atmospheres, too round a bowl, pitch too far away from the crowd etc.

They have a paper thin squad and relegation before their move would screw them over for years. EL just isn't worth it for them.

Ahahaha love watching other fans get jealous of the Olympic Stadium!

I'm furious at what our Manager did tonight, throwing away our Europa League chances by playing a 2nd string team and not even trying.

However I know we're on the up. We'll lose on Sunday to Arsenal either way, no idea why they thought we had a chance if we rested our first team.

Onwards and Upwards though!

The Olympic Stadium is a shed mate. The Boleyn Ground is a traditional footballing venue with character, this new ground will be one hell of a soulless place to play football in and never full.

They'd fill it for the big games, if they started winning games and threatening the top six it would sell out every week with ease. West Ham's supporter base in London and the surrounding areas is absolutely huge and i'd say it rivals that of Chelsea.

It's dead in the centre of London too so you'd get the standard corporates, JCL's, tourists etc.

West Ham knew they're the only viable team that can get the stadium, the ball was on their court and they negotiated perfectly. Otherwise the Olympic Stadium would have gone untouched; Leyton Orient are much too small a side for the stadium. The public were gonna maintain it either way. Now it has a purpose. Well, I feel ****ed over but at the same time, you can't rationally blame anyone.

For some reason attendances at the Stadium of Light are generally 90%+ (of a 50k seater) and Sunderland have been truly awful the last few years.


Anyway, it's not a problem, definitely no shame in loosing to a team who couldn't even finish in the top 3 in Romania last year...
