Have Leeds United left it too late to bid for the Olympic Stadium?

Oh dear, pretty soon the Oxford English Dictionary will need rewriting with the meaning of the word "Prevarication" reading "GFH Capital".

Having missed the opportunity of revamping the squad in January and of replacing manager Neil Warnock at the same time, it now seems the Arab bank is about to lose out on the Olympic Stadium, with confident predictions that, replete with retractable seating, it will be awarded to West Ham United tomorrow.

What a missed opportunity! Leeds are such a huge club that it seems absurd for them to retain the 39,000 capacity Elland Road as a home stadium. And why stay in a city where fans will only turn up in reasonable numbers if the price of entry is made comparable with a KFC Family Bucket?

Just imagine what Leeds could have achieved had the club moved to London. Suddenly proper players would have been keen to join, attracted to one of the greatest cities in the world!

Wimbledon made the move in the opposite direction, setting the precedent, and GFH Capital, with a greater sense of vision, could have renamed the club Stratford Leeds AFC and settled snugly into the Olympic Stadium, attracting gates of 60,000 for every home game, and facilitating the sale of the club to an Arab or Russian oligarch, attracted by the unlimited potential of a club located in London and occupying a state of the art stadium, remodelled at the expense of the tax payer.

How galling must it be for the fans of Leeds United to know that their taxes are helping to remodel a stadium to improve sight lines for West Ham fans? How much better would it have been if this sleeping giant of a club had secured the stadium as their own?

    2. Just visted your west ham site and its so obvious why you write all this crap about Leeds , on average you get 12 or 13 replies about west ham , but on your Leeds comments you average about 45 , sometimes as many as 70 ,, your just on the Leeds utd band wagon because none of your fellow supporters listen to or respond to your drivel

    3. Yes...your article was very boring and sent the reader sleepy...and probably did send Haigh and Patel off to sleep along with the rest of the world within a 5000 mile radius

  12. Its a good job it has retractable seating fella I doubt Wet Spam will be able to fill it What a larf eh Wet Spam playing in Stretford. You cocker knees would sell your souls for a shiny retractable seat. Hope your rented gaff has some of your porno owners old blow up dolls to fill those empty seats. Now go play with your big bruvvers over at Spuds & the Arse, or do those big Landarn clubs scare little old Wet Spam. Best go play with the Orient-more your size, & seeing as your playing in their backyard now you might want to borrow some of their fans to help you fill the white elephant of a stadium.

  13. It's the articles that you write like this one, un-founded and practically pointless, which undermine the stuff you write which is actually interesting.

    If there's nothing to say, don't say it.

  15. You must be delighted with the move to the Olympic Stadium. Such stadia are renowned for being fantastic venues for watching football matches. Better dust off the old binoculars if you plan on actually attending any of your home matches Hammersfan... Or maybe you should leave them at home, to spare you the agony of having to watch your team shuffle towards its inevitable sad demise.

  19. You really need to start attending your own teams games before you have a go at others hf. Let's see how many of your fans turn up at the far too big stadium when the porn kings hike up the prices.

  20. Why?? What was the point of this blog? Even for you this is a very poor attempt at winding people up, im actually a little worried for you! I hope you are drunk because this my buddy old pal is utter drivel!

  21. Are you that desperate for something too say about our great club. I ve always felt that the Hammers are the poor relations to other bigger London clubs. In a sense I thought you would have an affinity with us Northerners who have to put up with the shite from the London media for not being glamorous. As for attracting better players because we would be in London what about Scott Parker couldnt wait to fuck off to a bigger London club

    1. Easy to answer. As a West Ham fan I avoid West Ham news after a defeat because it depresses me. So apart from what I saw during the game, I had no idea what had happened. As soon as I had a clear picture, I condemned in no uncertain terms what had happened.

  31. As a football fan it is sad to see a club like yours loosing its spiritual home and I am glad Ridsdale never acheived his goal of relocating LUFC. As for your new home I have driven past and it looks like what it is, a souless place in an urban area, you will echo like hell when you drop back down and I bet your worried that when you get into your new stadium that the coins wont reach the pitch.
    Your city is so fantastic that you spend all your spare time writing about us, why not get out a bit more you might find another looser to talk to.

  32. it was not until after the condemnation from the press and other media sources did you then decide to go to print....only then did you decide to buy a ticket and jump on the band wagon...true or false?...how else can you explain the passing of more than 24 hours..please oblige,but please read carefully and slowly so you don,t confussed.

  33. just done some more research..you did 2 very,very long winded rants about Leeds United brfore you went to press regarding your team,that is westhamutd,incase you forgot which team you support and not the team you follow,that appears to be Leeds.

  39. Good luck with your new stadium,is that what you want to hear,but to be fair it as nothing to do with Leeds,so why is this on a Leeds web site,whats the point of it?Are we supposed to be mad at you because a thin slice of our tax,s is going to pay for it,so what?We pay a lot more for hundreds of other things,what do you want leeds fans to do go outside and bark at tho moon?.i don,t get it,do you live in a goldfish bowl going round and round?

  46. Hello tennis fans and Mr Hammerfan - it's JONTY time !!!

    The might whites of Elland Road do not need the Olympic Stadium because my dream is to see our beloved LEEDS UNITED palying at WIMBLEDON the most fantastic sporting arena in the world.

    It's not far from Croxley Green (where I live) and I can be head tennis coach to the boys.

    I can really see this happening folks - we don't own ER anymore so come on GFH buy Wimbledon now !! The fans of LEEDS will love it and we can all transform Henman Hill into our fotress looking down onto the magnificent centre court where we will play ll of our matches.

    First serve, foot fault, overhead smash and JONTY 64 wins yet again - yeeeeeaaaaaahhhhh !!

  48. Seems a waste of time giving a new stadium to a Team who are going down this year.

    Get on to Befair guys and punt hard on West Ham to be relegated.

    Then we can all get rich so that when we visit them next year we can throw our KFC wrappers at their shitty fans.

  49. Its galling in your mind. There is no rivalry between Leeds and West Ham.
    Leeds couldn't give a flying fuck about West Ham. They are and always will be a wannabee great club who will never be spoken of in the same breath as the Big Boys.
    We like to see West Ham fail because we don't particulaly like you Mr. Blogger. Your obsession with Leeds is bordering on the psycotic.

  51. 20.01 and 21.44,i was bad laughing at your comments. I haven't been on this site as it's normally tedious,but as usual i've been looking on NewsNow for T/0 news and thought i'd look at the comments. This tool doesn't realise that he isn't the star attraction on his own blog. His humour level is v,low,he's the type that wears a red nose all year round in his office as he's so zany. "The Games Gone Crazy"? Oh ha ha ha. A sign reading"You don't have to be mad to work here,but it helps" on his desk,cos he's so whacky. Anyway w,hams new stadium will be another ground he'll be avoiding.

  52. 15m spent by west ham, then 2m a year for rent!?! Doesnt sound like a good investment. Let's hope we can fill it, and we don't get relegated again! Let's also hope the atmosphere stays the same and doesn't die like when arsenal moved, from another hammers fan!

  57. It beats me where the extra 25,000 fans are going to suddenly appear from when you never filled the ground you were in. Still I would imagine that the bigger London clubs like Fulham and Q.P.R will help boost your attendances to around 35,000 and the Arsenals, Spurs and Chelsea's to around 40,000. Whichever way you look at it, you'll never fill it.
