London Mayor Johnson Being Accused Of Favoring West Ham For Olympic Stadium
Published October 19, 2011
NO CAPACITY: In London, Martin Samuel writes, "Don't do us any favours, Barry. We'd hate to inconvenience a football club that currently averages 3,710 fans per league game with something as trifling as an Olympic legacy." Samuel asks, "What do Leyton Orient want with a 25,000 capacity stadium anyway? They cannot fill the 9,271 space at Brisbane Road." Samuel: "Maybe Hearn thinks he can pad out the arena with discount offers and reduced ticket prices, except it is precisely that type of pledge that has made him such an opponent of the West Ham bid" (London DAILY MAIL, 10/19).
