Lack of respect for champions place stones

West Ham supporters were dismayed yesterday to find the new Champions Place area being used to store large wheelie rubbish bins close to a memorial stone for Bobby Moore. The Stratford Champions Place area was finally opened this week ahead of the Muller Anniversary Games when athletics returned once again to the former Olympic Stadium.

Hammers fans took the opportunity to check out the transformed stadium for themselves while others attempted to find their granite Champions Place stone, many of which are dedicated to lost ones. Supporters have paid between £60 and £499 to have stones inscribed in a special area in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Let’s hope they can find a better place to store the bins going forward.

A large area of the stones were also obscured by a large British Athletics tent over the weekend.

    • I think there are many on there that dont like him but agreed there a handful who are truly esconced in his backside Lol
      However maybe I should not air my views as it could be seen to be jumping on a bandwagon & unable to think for myself 😛

      • A compulsory sick bag should be made available whenever logging on to wetlands so you have something to use when reading Fat Shams adoring fans comments

  3. Haha I want to throw the author in the bin.Im going to go Banjio Bellendici hunting with my blunderbuss 😀
    Seriously though I think there are going to be many disappointed fans who think he is going to go in & shake things up.I don’t see it myself.End of the day he is just another employee of the useless FA suits & he will end up dancing to their tune IMO.

  4. You are famous P45 you are being directly quoted on Wet Pants lol

  5. Haha,just seen it.Dont worry Banj knows I’m only joking.Now I’m banned I can only wind him up from a distance lol.What some of the others think on there i couldn’t give a feck 😀

    • Lol You know, I never understood why you were banned on there… I didn’t notice anything wrong or hartful in what you wrote… that’s a very democratic site, It’s a triumph of free speech… lol 😉

      • That’s life Matte.I admit I did have an angry swearing session the other night but I have seen other regulars use the same language sometimes but not get banned.Depends whether your face fits with some on there haha I’m not part of the drinks crowd,they can swear I can’t 😀

        • I’m still going after him with my blunderbuss though for writing that article haha.You may think your safe but you ain’t Deliverance Boy haha 😀

        • I totally understand, you’re not inner circle… you failed the initiation test… haha 😉

  6. Haha… I suggest you The Divine Comedy… now you are in Purgatory… among lost souls …lol 😀

    • Haha to be fair I know you ain’t too happy about the place but there are some top lads on there.Only one or two total tw#ts.Anyway who gives a ****.They have their precious site free of me now.Big round of applause for them 😀

      • Hope I’m one of the top lads, lol
        Banning does happen to many on there, my Twitter log in cant comment at all.
        ive been warned recently for swearing again, but the site isn’t as bad as painted on here,
        you just got to get to know them.
        i don’t get the animosity between here and there either
