Sorry it's been a bit quiet here over the past week, I've been torn between laughing and crying. Of course I am sad at the imminent demise of the Boleyn Stadium. Every West Ham fan will hold a fond memory of the stadium of Ron Greenwood and Bobby Moore, the stadium of Hurst and Peters, the stadium of Brooking, Bonds and Devonshire, the stadium of Il Duce Di Canio and, all too briefly, of Third Party Carlos Tevez.
But the world moves on as they say, and for all the sadness, you have to see the funny side of West Ham landing a 600m stadium, complete with the retractable seating necessary to convert it into a footballing venue, for the princely sum of £15m!
Levy squealed, Levy protested, Levy took court actions, Levy wound up the key in Barry Hearn's back, Levy probably prayed and tried to call in all sorts of personal favours, offering promissory notes in return, but where did it get him?
Yes Tottenham will be building a new, state of the art, stadium but at what cost? And where will it be situated?
Arsenal have stopped winning things since the switch to the Emirates and there has been a steady stream of big money sales ever since. Yes the stadium is fantastic, but the cost of build has been a millstone around the club's neck ever since.
And Tottenham now face the same problem into the future, building a White Elephant stadium in, of all places White Hart Lane! It's like opening a Michelin 5 star restaurant in a pig pen!
Meanwhile, West Ham stroll into a stadium served by an underground station that is a hub in a future integrated London transport network and the tax payer is funding the move for the club. It is obscenely hilarious!
And if you are a Middle Eastern billionaire looking for a football plaything, where might you choose to chuck away your money. It didn't matter that Manchester United had all the history when the Arabs went shopping, they liked the idea of the Commonwealth Stadium; and West Ham will now represent exactly the same sort of prospect, but with knobs on!
Down Levy, and beg mercy of the porn merchants!
