West Ham Vice Chairman Karren Brady revealed yesterday at City Hill that a statue will be commissioned to fill the empty plinth at Champions Place outside the London Stadium originally intended for the World Cup champions statue from Green Street featuring Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Geoff Hurst.
Earlier this year Newham council under a new mayor vetoed the move of the existing statue from the corner of Green Street and Barking Road despite previously agreeing to the move under previous mayor Sir Robin Wales.
Brady also revealed that the London Stadium East Stand will be renamed after a former player that is respected, this is largely anticipated to be Billy Bonds although no official confirmation has been made. The Club previously tried to rename the road bridge to the stadium the Billy Bonds way but failed to reach agreement.
Today we ask who should be honoured in a new West Ham statue outside the London Stadium?
