£200m Public Subsidy for West Ham Leeds To Massive Controversy


So it is looking increasingly likely that the public purse will be used to turn West Ham United into a footballing super power. The jellied eels munching East End barrow boys, it seems, will be packing up their caravans, towing them up the road to Stratford and setting up home in an Olympic Stadium remodelled to fit the club's needs, complete with state of the art retractable seating to ensure the stadium creates the right sight lines and atmosphere for a future Champions League club.

Bloody hell, even Del Boy wouldn't have dreamt up this wheeze. In 2015, we really could be millyonaires, playing in front of 60,000 spectators, with special concessions for the young to ensure a future generation of London based, West Ham supporters. And remarkably, the taxpayer, be he a Tottenham, Arsenal, Chelsea, Millwall or even Leeds fan, will fund it!

How galling must that be if you support another club? How many whippets will be kicked by guys in flat caps when this is officially announced? How many Oy Veys will be uttered on the way back from the synagogues of Tottenham? How many wives will be punched in Millwall? How many Chelsea fans will melt in indignation? How many Gunners will go pop at the prospect?

It is, of course, outrageous, but it looks like it is going to happen regardless. Boris wants it to happen and what Boris wants, Boris gets. Newham Council are committing £40m to the project despite being one of the poorest boroughs in the country, funding a privately owned football club out of the public purse, having led objections to Tottenham moving to the stadium.

Whilst poor old Leeds United is negotiating to sell its soul to Shatan, the Dildo Brothers look like they have pulled off the biggest coup since Bates sold Chelsea to Abromovich. Happy days! Unless you are a tax payer who does not support West Ham!

Of all the possible outcomes your fantasy is the least likely. For starters you'll be back in the championship by 2015, Spurs will be keeping a close eye on this and the tax payer won't pay anything for this. West Ham will pay a large chunk plus 2m a year rent. Get your facts before you talk shit. And to be honest I couldn't care less if tax payers money is used for this. Do you think anyone really cares? Good luck to you. You'll need it.

Is this not a "state aid" issue?
Why should taxpayers, the length & breadth of the country fund West Ham United & not any other club?
Is it not enough that they're getting a new stadium?
60,000 people, at home games, singing "Knees Up Mother Brown" & watching big Sam's route-one, long-ball game? I don't think so!
Irrespective, I can't see fans of any other English league club being happy with this decision if it goes ahead.

Why do you find the need to use prejudice and even racist language in a desperate attempt to seek attention?

60,000 every week, lets hope the away fans feel like coming to watch as the ground will only be a third full, you being one the worse supported clubs in the premier league, but wait a minute 2015 you'll be in the champonship 60,000 capacity dick head

So much jealousy from other clubs. Get over it!

The mighty West Ham playing in front of a sold out Olympic stadium, I cannot wait.

Unlike Chelsea we actually have fans who turn-up through the good times and the bad.

Come On You Irons

To be honest you could move where ever you want i dont give a toss my only concern is leeds utd end of!! I seem to remember we outplayed you in both our games last season so whilst your sat in some east end cafe eating eels or in a shitty overpriced london boozer drinking flat beer this might be worth considering. Your a bell end!

Now you've definitely lost the plot. Ha! Looks like the Savile piece you were goaded into writing has left you looking like a complete fool and desperate to keep the hits and retorts from us Leeds fans coming. You know this Leeds to a slippery slope HF and leaves you looking more and more desperate by the day. Maybe it's time to give up the 'day' job. Be suprised if you post this TBH. Let's see if you've got the minerals.
