I'm no architect so wouldn't know how to do it but COULD the London stadium be redeveloped to be a football ground? Or would it need a complete rebuild?


1.) 06 Sep 2017 12:51:21
I'm hoping it can be done as uk athletics are considering moving to a purpose built stadium in Birmingham therefore leaving us to maybe redevelop the London stadium, watch this space, (but we do need a team to play in it first) .

2.) 06 Sep 2017 14:12:44
Haha true stevie, I wonder if any plans are out there ( for both) lol lol.

3.) 06 Sep 2017 15:18:56
Phil parks was saying that West Ham should've built a proper football stadium on land between the A13 and A25 which would've had enough space for shopping complex, hotels etc, he could be right, but David Sullivan Jr. has said it is still possible that his dad could buy the stadium outright, (believe it when I see it) and Frank Mcavennie has said they should sell the club and leave the stadium for a purpose built one elsewhere, so there's a few that are not happy with the stadium situation at the moment but your guess is as good as mine as to what will happen.

4.) 06 Sep 2017 16:18:33
I remember a feed ago that the old West Ham post office site was touted as a possible new ground site but it never happend . Who could finance a new ground? What they cost? 300m more less?

5.) 06 Sep 2017 16:36:46
They was going to buy the Olympic stadium at first with the help of Newham council before Herne and Levy put a stop to it so they must be able to finance it.

6.) 06 Sep 2017 17:00:00
I heard they WAS looking at the land where the lakeside hammers race near the shopping centre.
We need a ground just for US not to share with athletics or concerts or for anything else, upton park was our home and its just not the same we need a new place to call home to look to the future.

7.) 06 Sep 2017 19:50:46
I do believe that we will sell the club within 3-5 years and hopefully to a billionaire who could take us to next level like citeh, we do need a home, Upton park was a special place and it'll take time to ever replace that were ever we end up.

8.) 07 Sep 2017 07:07:31
Regards the stadium, it would easy to convert into a football couldren!

The roof is in place, and with the running track gone, it would just be a matter of re-profiling the stands to a steeper angle.

Everyone would be closer to the pitch, and the atmosphere would crank up a few gears.

Add a few more bars, and a smoking terrace, and it would be the best in Europe!

9.) 07 Sep 2017 10:17:46
With the biggest screen in Europe!

10.) 07 Sep 2017 10:24:55
It would be an impressive stadium and it needs to be done but we have to buy it outright and make it our home if that's the plane.

11.) 07 Sep 2017 13:44:16
It's actually much harder than that.

The roof only extends to cover the current stand positions in 'football mode' so wouldn't be suitable if the stands were nearer the pitch.

The angle of the lower stands is shallow already so changing the rake if brought forward (and with the roof sorted) would make them more shallow not steeper. The rear stands are fixed so would need totally demolishing to re-angle.

The current ground will never be a football only stadium as if purpose built. Sad but true.

12.) 07 Sep 2017 19:24:20
Shame really because if we do want to grow then a bigger stadium is needed . I know a lot of people have said there piece in the move and Miss UP and want to go back ( if still there ) but don't forget that 20000 more West Ham fans can now see there team play! They have a voice too and should be allowed to voice it . Personally I would like a proper football designed ground but in the meantime I will enjoy going and supporting home and away :) now then let's beat hfield and kick on:) :) :)

13.) 07 Sep 2017 22:52:25
Its awesome that more fans come to watch but its not OUR home and never will be, if we moved to our own purpose built stadium which was made to be intimidating and feel like home like upton park then none of us would have a problem, this is all a cash train for the davids before they sell and they have sold our club and history down the river, i'm a season ticket holder and will support the team whoever plays and will continue to do so but this is not my west ham as I knew it.

14.) 08 Sep 2017 13:36:25
if we were to buy the ground we could copy Barcelona and have the pitch below ground level. That way we could create a whole now lower tier and all tiers/ rows would be on the same angle or rake from top to bottom. I imagine it would be bloody expensive to do and the back rows would be further from the pitch, but would surely be cheaper than starting again somewhere else?!

Could even copy Barcelona with the stadium name. the Newham Camp?!?!

15.) 10 Sep 2017 06:00:37
I agree Joe the only way to improve the stadium would be to lower the pitch but then there's also the matter of the roof. Massive project!

Mike another day ticks by . any word from Lisbon? How was Monaco ed?


{Ed002's Note - Monaco was the same as it always is, busy and pleasant warm weather in the evenings. It doesn't ever change much - I have lived there on and off for getting on for 20 years.}

1.) 25 Aug 2017 16:08:38
Who are you, in terms of WHU/ football, ed?

Ed you are a star :) hope u have room for your rodeo bull in Monaco, space is tight there :) :)



21 Aug 2017 17:53:35
Any update on the Portugal situation Mike? Still talking or the 'delegation' spending the expense money? 🙂.




28 Jul 2017 11:45:37
Lanzini knee injury? Any info? Not skullduggery I'm hoping.




17 Jul 2017 20:39:03
How it go with mr hart today? Not seen an official announcement yet?


1.) 17 Jul 2017 20:49:48
West Ham sitting on it for a reason? IRONMIKE.

2.) 17 Jul 2017 20:50:24
Was thinking the same, they're dragging this announcement out?

3.) 17 Jul 2017 21:32:49
Multiple announcement?

4.) 17 Jul 2017 21:35:58
Triple signing Mike?

5.) 17 Jul 2017 21:52:49
Maybe they will get the best China out and an official Fan Faye going all this takes time.

6.) 17 Jul 2017 22:18:05
Can I just say ( Phil will vouch ) that before I go back to my zen garden . I'm not stressed! Honest.

Anyone answer?
Is the 2700 allocation from spurs, the same as for the other london clubs or dos the Wembley safety group see this as something special?




09 Dec 2017 16:34:55
Couldn’t make today ( due to work ) but will be there Wednesday night! Let’s keep this going and make the place shake under the lights COYIS! :)




03 Dec 2017 17:57:43
Lots of heart and bottle, shame but big improvement on effort,


1.) 03 Dec 2017 18:04:40
Well done much better and got to keep Adrian in goal.



28 Nov 2017 22:00:56
Just got in from the u18 s at Wycombe, lost 2-0 to a strong Wycombe side but more importantly ginge only lasted 20mins then had to come off with a strain possibly hamstring . Not good for him real shame.


1.) 29 Nov 2017 14:32:02
Hi Jasonb also went last night thought we were poor without Rice Martinez etc only hope they are going to be at Everton tonight

Wycombe were very good and seemed to outplay us at every turn.

2.) 29 Nov 2017 16:40:28
Hello mercel, they looked stronger and very well drilled at the back, never lost there shape, Martinez was defiantly missed along with rice . Once ginge went off we lost our defensive strength I feel . Really needed a goal just to warm up, was bloody cold! Lol . Really hopeful for tonight got a good feeling .

3.) 29 Nov 2017 19:35:34
Hoping it's a win I couldn't stop shivering all night lol.

4.) 29 Nov 2017 20:48:47
My feet are still frozen mate :)



27 Nov 2017 20:28:10
Mike a sort of one for you, a while ago or the season before we moved, Slav was booming out heavy metal in the changing room and we did well, did this change in the LS? I know it’s random but it’s strange how things affect the team . :) not sure MOYES is a metal fan lol.


1.) 28 Nov 2017 10:51:21
BILIC also loved certain arias from the operatic scene, as does Moyes, , most of the players stand around listening to there own headsets, so not sure, how each player is individually affected, IRONMIKE.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 20:46:00
Bring back group head banging lol.

It will be interesting to see where this eventually leads, will dgs get there increased capitcity? Will they get the Claret Astro turf? Will the mayor get to put Boris in stocks in the centre circle and throw rotten veg at him? Will the ( not so) retractable seating be sold for scrap and replaced with deckchairs? God knows but whatever the outcome let’s hope it’s fair alround .

Agreed ed, for the foreseeable future nothing will change, unless it’s deemed to be in the public interest to change the agreement, ( however un Likely )


{Ed002's Note - The contract is nothing whatsoever to do with “public interests”.}
