Particularly from somewhere like Upton Park, which was a proper old school stadium.

Although the stands were actually that close to the pitch after the redevelopment but I know what you mean.

Too far away from the pitch. I'd be gutted if we moved into that.

The arguments about the temporary seating covering some of the running track ignore the fact that the top tier is still as far away from the pitch as that hasn't moved.

If you're at the back of that it'll be some way from the far side of the pitch.

I read that the front row of the top tier is further away from the pitch than the back row of the furthest stand from the pitch at Upton Park.

Halfway back in the upper tier on the side and behind the goal.

You'd be caught before you reached the pitch, it's fucking miles.

Looks like half the floodlights aren't on. Did West Ham not manage to get the taxpayers to  pay the leccy bill as well.

The stadium itself is quite nice.

Just not for watching a game of football at.

Would probably make a decent venue for a day/night game of cricket. Similar to the Gabba is Brisbane or a smaller version of the MCG.

In fact isn't them some talk of Essex playing some T20 games there at some stage?

How does a 20 game lease work then? What about the other games they'll expect to play at home?
