|All you need to know about West Ham United FC's potential move to Stratford.
No. I was always reservedly in favour pending knowing the full details and nothing about the opening ceremony put me off.
Nobody is more into the history of the club than I am - See the pink shirts thread in the Hall of Fame if in any doubt - And history isn't a consideration because the present is history in the making.
My prediction is that the stadium will be offered, it will be considerably modified, we will move there according to the schedule for occupancy, and after a not long period of time the move will be a total non-issue.
Exactly the same as you.
No, not at all .
The opening ceremony was magnificent , and the stadium is exactly what I would expect it to be : fit for purpose for 6 weeks of Athletics in the middle of summer .Quite how appropriate it will be when it's raining heavily in November is a different matter .
I've never been concerned with the food arrangements , and the travel aspect is of little interest to me personally - I would simply take the train rather than drive .My current journey time is around 40 minutes door to door and that would be the same via train .
The issue isn't being attached to the Boleyn per se - after all , I hardly recognise the ground compared with my childhood , and being a regular away match attendee , half my memories are from different grounds anyway .
The issue, and nothing I have seen, read, or been promised by the club will alter this, is the viewing distance and angle .There is nothing they can practically do to modify the Olympic stadium to replicate , even in a basic form to what I have currently, it will be a considerably worse view , and for me that's the deal breaker .
Wasn't going to go to Stratford before Boyle's extravaganza, and won't be going after it .
And, yes, I have been inside the stadium .
Sadly most of the naysayers have dug their heels in and won't change their minds.
Nope. Still very worried about it being a souless bowl for a game against Wigan for example. I think we will become a part time Percy club.
I think we can all agree it's a bloody great risk. What annoys me the most is that 3 people decided to move us there without consulting until after the decision was made. To all those for it, what happens if it doesn't work out? What's Plan B?
It's not even a nice looking stadium is it though? I mean in comparison to other European stadiums, its ***** and tacky. I know it's not all about eye candy, but still, it looks horrid.
Not sure why anyone would change their mind based on the opening ceremony of the Olympic games.
I disagree I like it, it's a functional lean design that has a look that is unique enough for it to become an iconic building.
It would be a bit boring if we all liked the same thing, by way of contrast I live in a 16th century farmhouse and do most of the building/repair work on the farm myself using traditional techniques.
plan B is if it all goes Pete Tong and the Boleyn has been demolished to move into Rush Green and develop it. By the way I'm not for the move, I just thought I'd answer cos the pro-move brigade always go quiet when a tricky question is asked
Not in a million years, if you think the transport situation is bad currently, try getting to Rush Green by public transport, 2 tubes stations both further away than the 3 that are currently within walking distance. I thought the reasons put forward for the move was the improved transport links
