The piece revealed that E20 LLP, the stadium’s operators owned by the London Legacy Development Corporation, have filed for losses of £28.3m in the running of the tax-payer-funded ground in 2018/2019.
It’s apparent that many Irons fans feel this way too as they proclaimed that David Gold and David Sullivan should be allowed to buy London Stadium.
It’s hard to see how the club owning the Stratford venue wouldn’t be a move for the better as the taxpayers would no longer see their hard-earned money disappear into the hands of E20 LLP and we would get to see West Ham tailor the ground for football/
In the meantime, though, Hammers can only call for the change…
Headline aside, an actual article that makes clear that we have no say or control in the running of the stadium and that the LLDC are making matters worse….which is refreshing
They just need to let us buy it and sort it all out

Can we buy it for a knock down price and actually make a proper football stadium out of it then???

If Spurs hadn’t thrown their teddies out of the pram after we’d agreed a deal to buy it, tax payers wouldn’t be footing these losses and we’d have a stadium that would be top notch, with the seating that we want. Best option is to sell it to WHU and get rid of the loss maker. ⚒

Sell it to West Ham!
It’s the daft athletics legacy that screws it all up!
Seb coe and the planners have a lot to answer for!🙄

Sell it then ⚒ make Gold and Sullivan buy it

Hopefully they will sell it to us so we can knock it down, play our games at Wembley for 3 seasons, and build a real stadium in its place.
