Take the London Stadium Questionnaire

SeatsWest Ham co-chairman David Gold said last Wednesday “I think the majority of fans are happy with the Stadium given the alternatives and if all goes to plan it will be the biggest in London. dg”

On the back on Mr Gold’s statement, Claret and Hugh ran a poll to ask West Ham supporters the very simple question. Are you happy with the London Stadium? With 1,500 voting to make it statistically significant, 56% agreed with the chairman to confirm they were happy with the London Stadium leaving 44% to register their unhappiness.

This prompted Iain Dale from WestHamTillIDie.com and myself to discuss the creation of a wide ranging questionnaire on the London Stadium from a supporter’s perspective after 221 days or 31 weeks after we officially played our first game at the former Olympic Stadium last summer.

This is not designed to an anti-board or even a pro-stadium survey, there is no hidden agenda. It is merely a survey to highlight West Ham fans perception of the new stadium and what areas might still need improvement. The full results will be shared with the West Ham board for their consideration.

Please only fill out the survey if you have visited the London Stadium in person to sample one or more of the 19 competitive games and/or the one friendly which have been played at our new home since the 4th August last year. Please base your answers on your most recent visit to the stadium to recognise areas which may have been a problem at the beginning but have since improved.

The aims of this questionnaire is also supported by the West Ham United Independent Supporters’ Association (WHUISA) and they have kindly agreed to send it out to their six hundred plus paid up members. You can find out more about WHUISA and how to join http://www.whuisa.org

We would like to encourage as many season ticket holders, claret members and general admission ticket supporters to answer this questionnaire as possible so please spread the word far and wide on forums and social media.

  1. Oh dear. What is the point of this? It will completed by fans who have an opinion but have not been to a single match, probably not visited the UK, this season and by opposition fans, all of whom will hate the stadium and slag off the board and tax payers contribution.

    Well done guys very constructive. The only survey that would matter is one done by the club by the ST holders. #pointless.

  2. What would the point be to fill out the survey if you have not been to the stadium, you may be surprised by the results

  3. Come on Sean you are a bright bloke, you know how bloggers think, if they’re anti the move and anti the owners they’ll fill it in regardless because they can’t help themselves. As for Spud fans or Chelsea fans, or a Millwall fan that’s just had a bad day, come on mate, I think you know what they’ll do.

    I’ll be surprised all right, I’ll be surprised if the result is remotely a fair reflection.

    I’m a fan of you and Hughie but please close it down!! Lmao I know you won’t! 😂😂

  4. Crikey Sean you and Iain might as well of handed out the pitchforks and told them what hill to march over lol
    Its like asking old age pensioners (of which i am one may i add lol) tea party what is their favourite thing about their local Grime scene compared to their old weekly ballroom dancing outing lol.
    If flippin turks can hijack a poll im pretty sure non stadium visitors will still fill in the survey.

  5. I have done it.Some interesting questions which i filled in honestly.
    I hope i got in before the Spuds,Chelski and Millwall fans get on it.It will happen!

  6. Lmao. I know I shouldn’t say this but the Origional Misery has already rallied the troops and handed out the pitchforks! Nigel will be doing the same on the WHUISA. 600 members? If it’s still going, there’s not much activity on the website?

    On Monday Stan is going to take to the OAP Club a questionnaire asking whether people over 65 should get a 20% increase on their pension, free viagra and Wednesday night pole dancing shows at the local D&J club upon production of their birth certificate. Any prediction on the outcome?

    Ok I’ve completed the questionnaire Sean but only to provide a sense of balance.

    • Don’t worry John
      WHUISA is here for the long run, not short term.

      • It’s all gone very quiet Nigel and at 600 members it seems to have stalled. Joking aside what’s the plan, you need 2/3,000 members surely to be taken seriously. Some sort of affiliation with the old supporters club seemed an obvious option to me.

        • Committee is working through things at the moment,
          Elections are planned and will take place, probably, at end of season,
          A push for members will take place again,
          Bearing in my mind were all volunteers
          Rome wasn’t built in a day.

  7. If i am totally honest i filled it in as i felt obligated.However i have no doubt the “We Hate The LS” troops will rally just to be miserable ******s.
    Oh and no im not a fan of the LS i just see no reason to become a barrack room lawyer with a rallying cry like some boring folk.

  8. I did it too but I also advise anyone if they get a chance to do the stadium tour. That made my mind up that it was the right move. I did it yesterday for my sons birthday. It’s self guided and very interesting. To walk the tunnel with bubbles in your ears and to go pitch side was fantastic.

  9. Sounds good Cas_Blue.Though not a fan of the stadium i am certainly open minded enough to not go beserk over any positive mention of the place like some.

  10. Nearly 5.000 have taken the survey already in the first 16 hours. The previous poll spilt the fans and I expect the survey might too on those who are happy and those who are not

    • I never said you wouldn’t get a lot of people taking part, I said it would be pointless as, in my humble opinion, of those 5,000, 10/15% will be fans that have never visited LS giving their view, haters will hate, 10/15% will be opposition fans being mischievous and finally, as I’ve just read elsewhere, those same fans can vote multiple times. Whatever result you get will be meaningless as you won’t know the number of fake voters and duplicate voters. The only poll that would be of any use is one that targets ST holders and Claret membership. Sorry to p on your parade but I’m only stating a view. This is just rabble rousing in my view and unhelpful to the club which this site tends to support hence my affiliation.

  11. Unfortunately any poll or survey on the internet isnt worth the time of day because itnis so open to abuse from absolutely anyone who fancies doing it for a laugh.
    I commend the time and effort put in from

    • I give up, how can you comment on here properly when ads continually load up as you are writing making the page jump all the time which is then followed up by a pop up covering what you are doing.
      What a waste of time.

  12. If they were minded too they could discard the ones obviously by non WHU fans, as a pure guess there are probably at least 80000 different West Ham fans that have attended the stadium when you take into account 57000 st holders and numerous claret members + the casual supporters maybe even more. Hopefully it won’t be hijacked and will provide some meaningful info, I know I put I wouldn’t mind the club paying a bit more for the stadium (provided we get the capacity increased), I also put in the added comment I would like to see the Club try to buy the stadium and redesign it. although that is highly unlikely.
