BBC Sports Editor reveals that West Ham are about to enter preliminary discussions about taking over the Olympic Stadium in 2012. Earlier talks between the club and Ken Livingstone, when he was, had foundered despite the club offering £100 million to take it over. That, apparently, wasn’t enough for Red Ken. The other stumbling block was the plan to scale back its capacity to 25,000. The new idea is to have a 50,000 capacity.
Anyway, read the full article HERE and leave a comment with your views. I have an open mind. I love Upton Park, but I do think if we have ambitions to enter the big time we need a bigger capacity for the big games.
