Former Hammer says London Stadium will take time

KoncheskyFormer Hammer Paul Konchesky has given hisĀ opinion of the London Stadium as a fan.

The right-back who played 59 times for the Hammers between 2005 and 2007 and describes himself as a lifelong fan of the club told Sky Sports Fantasy Football:

“It (The London Stadium) doesn’t feel right really, going as a fan now. It doesn’t feel right sitting in that stadium and not Upton Park. It’s going to take time I think and hopefully they get that atmosphere back. I’d have to say West Ham at the Boleyn Ground when that’s rocking and especially in a big derby, the Chelsea’s, the Tottenham’s, Arsenal’s, Millwall’s, there’s no better place to go and play your football,” Konchesky told Fantasy Football Club.

“I am a West Ham fan but I just think the atmosphere there, and when them fans got behind you, it was a great place to play.”

  1. I’ve witnessed a great atmosphere at the London Stadium when we were winning well and a dreadful one when we were getting stuffed…….. Same goes for when we were winning and losing at the Boleyn. Yes, there were many times when our fans became the team’s 12th man at Upton Park – but there were also too many times when the heavy, negative atmosphere back then, got the team beaten (or prevented them from turning a game around from a losing position).
