|All you need to know about West Ham United FC's potential move to Stratford.
So, let bloody Hearn groundshare if need be - he'll just sell Brisbane Road to fill his pockets and Orient will be finished as a club in 2-3 years time, as I cannot see them paying the rent for the OS, they may have to pay less than us, still I cannot imagine how the OS can work financially for Orient and their fanbase.
I now wish they would just announce their decision whatever it may be so we can then move on...
From the Premier League Handbook Season 2011/12
My cousin's an O's season ticket holder! Lives in Barking.[/quote]
I know 5 season ticket holders for the O's. two live in canterbury, two live in rainham kent and the other now lives in dubai but still pays for a season ticket so the club gets funds. All from the same family they are fervant supporters. They do get brainwashed by Hearn though and have all spouted to me about us killing their club and no football club should be allowed in the stadium because of the track and all that. piss myself when i read that hearn now wants the O's in there as well and got straight on the blower to my mate to rip the s##t out of him.
Right, that's the premier league....
If the football league have the equivalent of that in their rules then a ground share with Orient is totally impossible whoever might be in favour of it because it's simply not possible for both parties to have legal precedence over one another.
For that same reason it definitely rules out premier league teams sharing, so it totally rules out any possibility of sharing with Tottenham as has recently been suggested in this forum, and it raises the question of even if football league rules allowed Orient to share what would happen in the admittedly unlikely event that they ever won promotion to the premier league.
It might well be that our Barry hasn't thought this through very well at all
But it's not West hams decision. The LLDC have been promoting the stadium as a community arena to be used for a number of uses and they are asking for interested parties to submit applications as such and so even if West Ham object, then I can't see that swaying the LLDC's decision. But if it does then can you imagine the fun that Hearne will have in the courts with us and the LLDC?
In any case im still not sure about the governments real intentions now, as other posters have said....after the olympics all bets are off!
West Ham are not interested in ground sharing, so that means NO ONE can force us to do it. If the LLDC like Orient's application, plus a Cricket or Rugby team, then that's all very well. But I just wonder if it could work financial-wise with the OS if we pull out.
Leyton Orient, Essex Cricket, London Wasps or another Rugby side - will those clubs be in a position as tenants to provide the authorities with the kind of rent money that's needed to keep this stadium going ? I doubt it. The LLDC will have to walk the tightrope and make a very serious decision. If they want us in, fine, but on our terms. I cannot imagine Gold and Sullivan sitting down with Hearn and some rugby and cricket people discussing design of the stadium and sort out who's allowed to play there at what date...
The LLDC may yet mess this whole thing up (again), but I reckon Gold and Sullivan will tell them in no uncertain terms what to do when they ask us to move in together with Orient (plus maybe Essex Cricket and London Wasps).
I'm not so sure....The club have said publicly that they will not ground share with a rugby club but privately
Also, what would be the clubs arguement...We want it all to ourselves during the football season or not at all? If so then legally the LLDC may no choice than to reject West Hams bid!
Club have just responded. BBC's Dan Roan reports...
West Ham statement says club "has not held talks with Leyton Orient in respect of ground-sharing nor is it our intention to do so"
West Ham don't wish to comment on "ever-changing position" of Barry Hearn but say his statements "provide us with constant amusement"
Note to PP
Premier league does not allow groundsharing, either between clubs or with other sports (this was brought in recently as Big uproar for wigan and reading)
As such stop fishing, you are too well informed to be offering that kind of spureous information.
The Football League Regulations
I 'm quite amazed that not one single person on this message board has figured out what Hearn is up to.
Then on the other hand, if everyone here blindly beleives every single word that Gold/Sullivan/Brady tell them then why should I be amazed
Not sure your right with your assessment there mister Solo!
He's behaving like the conservationists who stop an entire housing scheme because they find a lesser spotted turd warbler on the site. He's doing what he's doing because he can. His ultimate aim is to be paid a lot of money to go away and stop bothering the grown-ups.
I seriously wonder how the LLDC will take these comments Pop;
"We do not wish to comment on recent statements made by Barry Hearn not least because we can't keep up with his ever-changing position.
"They continue, however, to provide us with a constant source of amusement.'
Joking aside, it's not very professional as you said!
