Playing Poker with the Boleyn
I'll see your Olympic Stadium and raise you the Boleyn.
Interesting to read that we may not move to the OS after all. Believe that and you will lose your house, wife and the keys to the motor if you ever sit down to a game of poker.
Sullivan and Gold bought the club because of the OS. It is their key to a killing. It's why they have increased their ownership and it's why the banks haven't called in the loans. It's also why the Fernandes approach was knocked back. Why share a bonanza if you don't have to?
How much is the Boleyn worth? A lot more as flats than as a football stadium. And a hell of lot more than the £40m that some have been claiming given the £73m figure showing in the published accounts (including the training facilities).
So what are the Davids up to? Trying to put the wind up the OLC of course. How stupid are they going to look if they can't find tenants for the stadium in the year of the Olympics themselves? Sullivan & Gold are suddenly in a buyer's market. Tottenham don't want the stadium so who else is there? Leyton Orient? Yeah right!
Retractable seating will now be a deal breaker - or so the David's will suggest. We won't spend a penny despite taking the piss out of the Legacy Committee. Sullivan & Gold have the them over a barrel and will drive the Claret and Blue dildo as deep as they can. Thank you Tottenham, you may have saved West Ham United an absolute fortune!
