Moyes: “We will play out football at LS for 100 years”

london-stadium-fansDavid Moyes is 100 per cent sold on the London Stadium claiming  it is “brilliant” and that nobody should be allowed “to tell you any different.”

The manager said: “I’ve been down a couple of times in the week and was there a year ago as manager of Sunderland. It’s a brilliant stadium and don’t let anybody tell you any different. It’s going to be the stadium we play in for the next 100 years.

I watched the game against Chelsea last year and it was one of the best atmospheres I heard in the Premier League last season, if I’m honest, so it’s possible.

What we need to do is give the supporters something to shout about because if we give them something to shout about that’s half-decent then I think they will support us wherever.

I think West Ham supporters will support their team, no matter what stadium they’re playing in.

  1. Think he best watch a game from the stands before offering that opinion. It does make me laugh that people cite the fact that a couple of times we’ve made a lot of noise because we’re beating Spurs or Chelsea, and that therefore the ground is ok. Of course we make noise in those circumstances, it wouldn’t matter if we were watching it in Trafalgar Square on a big screen. That doesn’t mean that that concrete bowl isn’t still utterly unfit for purpose.

  2. Why are so many fans calling for Carroll to be dropped or sold on ????? .
    Mystifying to me . When he is the only real threat we have , I call it rant Stupidity .
    A bit like call8ng for Alladyce’s Head after he gave us Premiership Survival .
    Some silly fans never learn . , either that or they follow the minority like sheep . I am convinced that had the crazy minority kept stchummm we would be in the top eight right now .thanks to the winging minority we ended up with Bilic . , the great West Ham legend ???? . Stick with Carroll and the game plan we will triumph . Missable fans who forget the goals he scored to keep us up . Scored on four games out of four lest you forget . A very good hat trick amongst them . He is the kind of player we need right now and with Stewart Pearce behind him ,, why not ,, if you want battlers in the old West Ham way then now’s the time . The West Ham way was always about battling against the odds . Pretty football had nothing to do with it . Every time we tried that style we got stuffed . We always ended up playing pretty second division football or today’s championship . Reckon it’s time for that bull **** to stop . 3 points are 3 points in anyone’s language .

  3. We got no option but play there ? At the moment anyway ? But we need a petition for e20 and Newham to let us put that claret surround in place ! It will transform the playing area for the better IMO ! Something needs to brighten the place up ! That’s got to be a board pursuit with possibly a petition ! It would IMO intimidate opposition as well psychologically ? You’re good at that sort of thing basil and sybil why not give it a crack ! You know I hate the place but let’s try and do something to make it reel like home ? Its a green monstrosity at present ! Add some claret and bingo , warmth ! More acceptable ! Just a thought?

  4. Carrolls elbows are a threat to opposition players faces.

  5. If you remember the Sydney Olympic Games and that 100 000 (80000 now) seat stadium. Well it was purpose built and state of the art. 17 years later it’s obsolete, the lease has been bought back and a NEW FOOTBALL STADIUM is due to be completed in 2022. Maybe we could be so lucky
