OS at sunset: why London fans have got the hump!

OS SUNSETTake a look at these stunning images of the Olympic Stadium at sunset and ask yourselves: is it any wonder London Supporters Groups have got the hump?

OSSUNSETSWest Ham is moving to the stadium – which represents the crown jewel of British sport – and ClaretandHugh reckons the rest of the capital’s football fans are experiencing a serious dose of stomach ache from sour grapes.

They disguise it as concern for the taxpayer. Yeah sure!

We believe the truth is they simply can’t stomach that the two Davids have done a deal which has knocked British football bandy.

Look at these images and give thanks. From next season, it’s ours and there are just two words suitable for the rest of you: TOUGH LUCK!

  1. Lets have a public inquiry & spend £m’s more of tax payers money to see if spending £m’s of tax payers money was correct. If they answer comes back as yes it was wrong, then will it change the fact that the tax payers money has been spent anyway??.. mmmmm good idea that…..!!!!! 😀

  2. 100% other fans with the hump,thinly disguised by concerns for the tax payers of this country.What a joke!!

  6. if my memory serves me well (it doesn’t always) we originally were going to buy it to save the thing become a tax payer white elephant like the Millenium dome. however some clever disk from another club objected and made a stink which then meant the taxpayer would keep the thing and rent it out to the highest bidder – which was west ham – who else bid for it ?

    • Maybe have a quiet word with ‘Lord’ i’ve lined my own pockets on the back of the olympic games’ & maybe the government at the time for signing off on the design. A phrase i
      sometime use ” you can’t polish a turd. Well it is being attempted & shock horror, it’s costing£m’s

  7. The BBC are to blame for this, their BIASED portrayal of the facts are criminal.

    West Ham will only get the use of the stadium for approx 30 days out of 365.
    335 days will be used for other sports and events, all of which do not , repeat, do not benefit West Ham. All monies from those sports and events go to the Stadium owners who look after it on behalf of the public.

    Even when West Ham have use of the stadium I understand ALL the catering profits go to the owners, NOT West Ham.
    Let’s get the true FACTS out there and stop this crap being tecycled all the time and putting West Ham in a bad light. IT’S NOT THEIR FAULT.

    The BBC should be sued for their utterly biased reporting on the Stadium and all who have been slated should sue them now .


  8. I don’t know why they are making such a fuss over it…they can have the away end when we play their teams after all hahaha

  9. If it’s open season on government help shouldn’t we be asking for enquiries into Newcastle who’s owner is propped up by paying disgusting wages being topped up by tax credits thus giving him spare to fund the club or look at all the owners like Abramovic who pay no tax in this country. Then we could look into the shady dealings of boxing promoters. It’s all jealousy and hypocrisy. At least our fine upstanding porn baron owners pay their way lol
