Change of Crest?

With the move to the Olympic stadium underway, do you believe we should drop the castle and just keep the hammers?

Isn't the castle a representation of our current location rather than the club's origins?

No.

As it is, it's pretty good and goes back a long way.

the best thing they did was restyle it a few (10?) years ago, away from that Disney fairy princess castle it was before.

No. Maybe on an alternate kit every once in a while, but otherwise, absolutely not.

No, thats like saying lets remove the blue from the shirt, or the United from West Ham, isnt the castle to do partly with Castle Swifts that were the predecessors to the amalgamation of west ham hence the united.

I'd suggest a small change - namely the severed heads of Levy, Sugar and a cockerel skewered on the ramparts
