Brady wades into London Stadium row

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has waded into the ‘London Stadium promises’ row about promises after months of silence on the subject.

Brady speaking on her personal Twitter account was trying to clarify questions for West Ham fans.

On the subject of playing away on Boxing day, Brady answered: “ I can confirm that we have never asked not to play at home on Boxing Day & the PL have never said we would not be picked to play at home on BD. Police often request preferences of London clubs eg no home games while Notting Hill Carnival is on but PL do not always agree”

She added: “It depends if we get selected! Here is a direct extract from PL letter to Met Police “Whilst I appreciate the local issues that Boxing Day brings, unfortunately, given the sheer complexity of fixture compilation we cannot guarantee that West Ham will not be at home on Boxing Day”.

On the Athletics, Brady confirmed that “I can confirm that the entire stadium will be back in full football mode by 1st August & WHU fixtures take priority. For the IAAF – the contract to host that tournament was signed before we signed our agreement, so that was the only exception to priority rule”

Later she added: “That is the date in the contract for a pre season friendly”

On owners spend Brady said: “Re spend on players – DS/DG have spent £264m since 2010 & that does not take into account the millions more spent on wages, agent fees etc. also spent a further £13.2m in the last 2 years on shop/offices/rush green.”

On the promised Stadium Wifi “I am sorry this was promised and not delivered. we were promised it by E20 but they have not ensured their operator delivers it. We are constantly onto them to sort it out.”

Further, on WiFi she added: “There are pockets of wifi in the stadium (for police, for media etc) but the infrastructure required for 60,000 people to all log on has not been installed yet.”

  1. Wifi? Who gives a monkey’s about that? Why not ask her about the world class retractable seating she was happy to show off in so many videos.

  2. I don’t know if the club has spent 264 mil on transfers in that time but what should have been included is how much has come in from player sales,would imagine it clears alot of that amount

  3. How many £100’s millions have come into the club via Sky, BT etc..?

  4. What about the 9000 seats sitting empty but useable every match, pay E20 more money and get the seats opened up so more of us can get season tickets.

  5. More half truths and lies. These people simply cannot help themselves. £264million spent yes, but NET SPEND ie. the amount that you’ve actually had to finance is about £140m over 8 seasons ie. £17.5million a season. Real breathtaking next level stuff. as for agents fees and the like, well they could happily be accounted for by the sale of the Boleyn.

    We all need to wake up. I was all for the move until I got to the athletics stadium. We were conned about that and conned about the investment in the team.

  6. Yeah thanks Brady for that BS. Jog on luv.

  7. I never liked lady bacon. I dislike her even more now.

  8. The best lie was comparing LS sight lines / distances with Wembley =

  9. Brady waddles in London stadium and its just lies lies more lies the board don’t need us telling them to go no other clubs chairmen spout the rubbish that this lot do and Brady is the worst of all out of our club now

  10. What an absolute idiot 264 mil since 2010 even if that was true that is still absolutely pathetic amount.. We will take in to consideration about the wazges but what about the players with have sold .just ayew and payet is knocking on for 50 mil and were did the 20 mil go wich we didn’t spend on za za and that’s just the last 3 years ..god you absolutely tool Brady …😂😂
