“Spurs can’t share OS in season one”


os2West Ham will not allow Spurs into the Olympic Stadium during their first season at the club’s new ‘home.’

Many mixed messages have been delivered on the situation but within the last few minutes ClaretandHugh has been assured by a highly placed Hammers source that it won’t and can’t happen!

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy will meet disgruntled White Hart Lane Supporters Trust members on Thursday amid reports of growing unrest and protests over the move to Milton Keynes.

And that again raised the issue of our bitter rivals moving either to the OS or Wembley Stadium during the year in which their new ground is being built.

But we have learned that there is “absolutely no chance of it happening during our first year in the stadium” where the Hammers have assurances the OS is entirely for their use.

Our source said: “It won’t happen in season one. That a certainty.  It might become a proposition for clubs to share in the future but we’d have to get a huge amount of money and it would need to be limited to one season .

    Oh woe are the Spuds, poor poor Spuds, they’re in such a pickle, mid table this season, another manager to pay off, all Gareth Bales money wasted, homeless with huge over the barrel rents to pay out, a ground to finance and all that whilst their closest and dearest neighbours, the mighty Hammers, and the less mighty Ars, are happily settled in their nice new stadiums. I can only see relegation for them I’m afraid……hahahahahaha….

    I should rent Hampden Park, that’s a big underused stadium. A 10 year lease would be attractive.

    so in other words once we are in for a year any other team wanting to play there can, so when chelski decide to move from the bridge they can rock up and share It to…… not happy about this sure clubs on the continent share grounds but here its part of your clubs identity and to share with another club in my mind makes it so so wrong… its not ours it will never be ours we are renting and the landlord has final say on who can and cannot play there…… we will get big money if we have to share they say I say that’s a given then we will be sharing with any and all by the time the second season rolls round as money talks, grounds going the badge is changing next it will be the colours! we will slowly lose our identity I feel

    With part time Brady any things unfortunately possible.Why doesn’t she come out and make a clear statement instead of you using unnamed sources.She has taken the bonus now earn it by showing us just what she did get and also what she hasn’t.We won’t own the OS so we won’t get an identity there as over the years all and sundry will use it. We are losing more than just the Boleyn…
