General view outside the London Stadium
The Hammers endured a pretty torrid first season at the Olympic Stadium - officially known as the London Stadium - with just seven home wins to their name as Slaven Bilic's side laboured to an 11th place finish.
The new stadium was actually cited as a key reason for the team's contrast in fortunes from their record breaking farewell campaign at the Boleyn Ground the season before.
A plethora of teething problems, supporters' discontent over the gap between the stands and the pitch and a perceived lack of atmosphere were just some of the issues.
Any debate over whether fans of both clubs got value for their money last season has now been put to bed by new research.
The average price of a season ticket at all top-flight English grounds was compared with the total number of goals scored in each stadium.
Southampton's St Mary's Stadium
And the findings revealed that fans at the London Stadium and St Mary's were being shortchanged as both made the top five most expensive Premier League stadiums for goals.
In fifth place, West Ham's new home witnessed 50 goals - owing more to the club's leaky defence than goal-happy forward line - which worked out at £13.89 per goal across the season.

In fourth place, St Mary's was nearly £5 more expensive, though, with 38 goals netted at the stadium, working out at £18.34 per goal.
North London was the most expensive place to see goals where a combination of expensive season tickets and better quality defending meant Arsenal and Tottenham topped the charts with the Gunners costing a whopping £27.52 per goal and Spurs £23.75 per goal.

Manchester United complete the table in third place, with Old Trafford's 38 goals costing fans £19.50 each.
At the other end of the scale, relegated Hull and Sunderland will take little comfort from the knowledge that their sides were in the top three for value for money in the Premier League.
The Tigers claimed top spot as their £432 season ticket and 63 goals netted in the KCOM Stadium meant that it cost just £6.86 per goal.
