If you listen to West Ham, the move to the London Stadium has been a roaring success.

The club announced yesterday the stadium has won a 'prestigious' architectural award, beating competition from around the world.

Club vice-chairman Karren Brady proudly posted the news last night via her Twitter feed.

 

The problem was that supporters were not impressed...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While the London Stadium may have it's architectural merits, it was built for athletics and not football, and West Ham have had trouble converting it.

A common complaint has been that the stadium lacks atmosphere and the intimacy of former ground Upton Park, which is currently being demolished.

As the owners pat themselves on the back for the stadium winning awards, they risk looking out of touch and alienating the fan base who want to recapture the love for the club they previously felt.
