“It’s not beyond the realms of possibility if we go to the stadium and with the support we’ve got,”
“West Ham has a huge supporter base. If you could make a comparison to another club of a similar stature and I would say Manchester City is it.
“Look what has happened to them after they went to a new stadium.
“If you were a foreign investor looking to buy a football club then West Ham would be a similar contender in the new stadium.
“More so if you want to buy a London club rather than a team in Manchester.
“It would be absolutely unbelievable. That could happen.
“I think it has been great for Chelsea with (Roman) Abramovich and for Manchester City. It has been great for the game. Of course I’d be thrilled to bits if it happened to West Ham.”
So what do you think of this statement? He has a point and I’m pretty convinced G&S are secretly hoping that the move attracts a big investor to come in and take the club over. London has more attraction then Manchester when it comes to investors and lets be honest they could get us on the cheap for a club with a 60k stadium in the capital.
But after all the ribbing I have given clubs like Chelsea and Man City for being plastic and fake do we really want to become one?
