E20 and the Harry Enfield teenager complex

A substantial number of media outlets are this morning latching on to the latest piece of commercial whinging  from E20 – that they appear to want a ‘Spurs navy’ surround at the London Stadium.

Regular readers will know that ClaretandHugh started this particular hare running during the week when questioning the stadium owners over their behaviour and revealing they want £170k to lay a claret carpet.

Their reasoning – though sponsorship money appears to have never been mentioned previously – is that there is a value in it for them and they want to protect their commercial rights and get the best deal for taxpayers as far as ‘dah’ carpet is concerned.

Now, excuse me but that all seems a little ironic from where I’m sitting  given the bigger picture as far as the stadium itself is concerned.

For as yet E20 haven’t even managed to get sponsorship/naming rights for the place and if the colour claret is worth the best part of £200k a year, God only knows hat they will want for the stadium itself if and when anyone shows the remotest interest in being associated with it.

Having lost on all four contested counts of the expert determination there will presumably be legal costs involved in West Ham’s favour which of course will come out of the taxpayer’s pocket.

Seems to us there’s some lazy thinking going on over there plus some sulky Harry Enfield teenager “It’s so unfair” mentality on display.

  1. Has anyone else had the thought that they may want the Spurs colour round the pitch in a bid to get Spurs to play at the London Stadium as their 3rd home ground they need?

  2. Lets not get held to ransom by these E20 clowns throwing tax payers money down the drain. I’m sure it’s only a mater of time before we are offered the chance to buy the money pit.I can suffer any other colour carpet rather than that sickly green. As we all know if we are watching our team play quality football the problems with the stadium become insignificant. COYI !!!!!!!

  3. Get Usmanov in to buy the ground and the club then we can move to the top table COYI !!!
