Hammers vice-chairman Karren Brady insisted that there can be no excuse for the club's poor home form following their stadium move in the summer of 2016, when writing her regular column for the Sun.

West Ham's record at the London Stadium since August last year makes for grim reading - nine wins, four draws and 11 defeats in 24 games. That is quite simply nowhere near good enough.

Many fans and pundits alike have blamed the distance between the crowd and the pitch for the east London outfit's home demise, with the days of the intimidating atmosphere at Upton Park long gone.

Karren Brady of Birmingham City looks on during the Barclays Premier League match between Birmingham City and Everton at St Andrews on April 12th, 2008 in Birmingham, England.

Brady though, does not subscribe to that notion.

She highlighted the atmosphere at the London Stadium during the game against Liverpool last weekend as heart-warming, when writing her regular column for the Sun:

"It is pure excuse-making for anyone to blame the move to the London Stadium for our failings. The Hammers roar is as alive as ever and the fervour with which our fans blew bubbles after we scored against Liverpool on Sunday was heart-warming."
