Hands up who REALLY wants that new Olympic stadium…

Some of you might have noticed that in between the football scores and stories about sexism, a debate has been raging as to who should get the Olympic Stadium once Liz McColgan has finished endlessly plodding around the thing in 2012. It’s between Spurs and West Ham.

To summarise: both clubs fancy it, but Spurs have totally enraged former long-distance princess Sebastian Coe by suggesting that they won’t have any need for the athletics track running around the pitch, whilst West Ham will pretty much just take it as it is.

But this is all missing the point. West Ham and Spurs fans, what do YOU want? It would mean moving to Stratford. Let us know your thoughts with a comment.

    Avid West Ham fan and while I might not be in line with every supporters’ attitude; I’m in favour. I love the atmosphere at the bolyen ground as well as the place itself, but I think it has become too closely associated now with what has been a very dark chapter for the club. The move long term to stratford would do the club good and personally I think wherever we are, running track or not there will always be atmosphere when West Ham play.

    Seb Coe, middle distance. 2 laps of the track isn’t that long is it!?

    Forget Sebastien Coe…the decision on who gets the stadium will be based on the almighty pound. West Ham can’t afford it…couldn’t fill it…and will probably be relegated.

    With the state of the UK economy…nobody can afford to risk the loan and the upkeep of the stadium to a “we-think-we-can-afford-it” club.

    Sorry West Ham fans. Tottenham is already picking out paint colours.

    The Tottenham offer is the best. It is a crap stadium and should be bulldozed. West Ham are going down and probably won’t be able to afford it. If it is left only for athletics it will be used maybe 3 times a year. Another bill for the taxpayer. I’m a fan of neither club.
