  • In this day and age, why are a local council giving a club like West Ham a loan? Where does a council have 40m to spend?
    It is not like West Ham even need it. After all, they have Karen Brady who became a MD at Birmingham straight out of university without at all utilising her family connections. Also, when they move in to the Olympic Stadium, West Ham will no doubt sell Upton Park for redevelopment and make about 100m. Add that to selling their players this summer for 40m and getting a tax rebate on the loss they will make on Rob Greene and Carlton Cole (after all, who in their right mind is going to buy them?). Another point - it will be a total embarrassment having a Championship (and soon to be League One) club play in the Olympic Stadium - you can just see when they line up against Yeovil Town in the LDV Vans Trophy in two years time, one of the stands being as bare as Arsenal's trophy cabinet over the last 6 years.
    Another point - why is a small club like Spurs hiring a lawyer even news worthy? Champions League you are having a laugh.
    The best option would be for Spurs, West ham and Orient (which I actually though ran a train company in Austria) to merge and call themselves London Spurs or something. Or the London Olympians. That would be a real legacy.

  • If the real Avram Grant spouted as much tripe as the individual above, then West Ham would have been relegated months ago.

  • Newham are not lending West Ham £40 million they are lending the company that will manage the Olympic Stadium £40 million, this company will be 50% owned by the council and 50% by West Ham. Any money from the sale of the Boleyn Ground will be also paid into the new company. And in two years time the stadium won't even be ready for football!
