    They have no veto and no choice, they're a tennent not a partner and that's it

    The the LLDC would have a very hard time explaining to the taxpayer why they turned down a (say) £10m a season offer.

    West Ham would also find it practically impossible to kick up a fuss when loads of clubs across Europe share stadiums and when they paying just a fraction of that each season.

    I imagine she's had worse on her chin.

    Still would.

    As I say, I'm only going by what they have said. They did sign a tenant contract, and nobody knows what was in it yet. So let's see.

    And a similar size to where we will be playing thereafter. Easy access for Kent and Essex too.

    Kind of thought I heard we'd offered £4m per season for Wembley whilst the chavs had offered more.

    Anyway, whatever the amount, I suppose it'll go towards paying for their screens.

    Money wouldn't go to West Ham. It'll go to LLDC.

    Don't think I said it would? Can't imagine West Ham investing in the screens alone when it will obviously benefit all sporting events.

    I was just trying to correct the fact you had suggested £10m 'payment' a season whereas Wembley would cost us circa £4m according to earlier reports. Not sure where the £10m came from that's all.

    Its double easy for me, 10 mins to the station, half hour on the rattler and however long the walk is from Stratford station to the ground. Fucking hell, i'm one pikey in the family away from becoming a West ham fan!

    It seems it's not LLDC that could be the problem?? My email below!!

    Dear Mr Wells,



    Thank you for your email.



    There is no clause in the contract with West Ham United to use the Stadium that gives them a veto over another football clubs using the Stadium. However, in order for a ground-share with another football club to take place it would need the agreement of the Premier League and this would require the consent of both clubs involved in the ground-share.


    I hope this helps.


    Kind regards,

    Michael

    Hi
    Could you please let me know if West Ham Utd have a legal veto to stop other football clubs using the stadium as their home ground?

    regards

    Eddie Wells.

    Suggests to me that we must be close to agreeing the Olympic Stadium for domestic matches then?

    I'm sure given a choice and all things being equal that the fans would prefer Wembley. But time will tell I guess.
    So with the two bits above could it potentially be Wembley for everything?

    That's OK. If West Ham aren't happy to share the OS with us they can always move to Stadium:MK for a season...:sneaky:

    I'd quite like to use the OS just to piss all those hammers fans off.
