I can exclusively :lol: reveal the AEG "story" is a complete load of nonsense.

The Mayor is not considering it at all.

And my source is impeccable on this.

That's a problem for you TOWIE boys - if you come in from the other side there's loads of canal side bars, breweries, food stalls, a pleasant walk along the canal, stop for a beer or food at The Milk Float or Barge East, plus The Ribman at The Bobby Moore Academy School and straight through security at bridge 3.

Or wait 4 years when the barren landscape by the pool will be home to Sadlers Wells, V&A and BBC Music:

Unfortunately, the stadium will still be the same and we still need to get shot of the owners!

To be fair Wembley I usually take the DLR to Pudding Mill Lane, it's the shortest walk to the stadium: There's absolutely nothing to see on the way but it's only a 10 minute walk. Straight in to the Boleyn bar, home of the £4 pie, £10 burger and £6 pint.

Just what I always dreamt of as a kid.

When I eventually bail out of the BB I'll join the hipster brigade on the Hackney side. Are beards mandatory ?

My route will be dominated by UCL East. If they let us into the Student Union Bars - with suitably subsidised Beer prices I'll be happy (but I doubt it!):

How easy is the get back to PML post match this season Pinky? I used to use it when I had my ST but it always seemed a palaver getting back to it from the east side of the stadium when they decided to give priority to letting away fans out.

I can confirm that an increasing number of hirsute challenged old ***** from Essex are now to be seen in the Wick on matchdays.

Bill I'm in block 127 and it's an easy walk to PML and after the game I use it to go back to Stratford and then jump on the tube.

as much as we all dislike the bowl if we get two wins there against spurs I think we can safely say that we will have finally settled at the dump.

for me it has plenty of faults and I wonder why we left but we have and cant go back.

so much needs to be done to turn it into a football stadium with the first being 100% west ham ownership with no athletics. only then can we properly look at improving things. I wont do a list again but you all know that many things could be done to improve it. in the meantime we have to get behind the team who are finally showing some cohesion and form. 100% support and lets see where MP takes us. I can see noble lifting a cup if we get lucky.

in the meantime lets cheer them on and back them at the toilet bowl !

Point of order:

Skinny jeans, no socks = Essex
Beard, general look of slothfulness, ironic charity shop clobber, either long or "bizarre" hair = Hackney

Certainly lots of Shoreditch Samurai but then Carroll is the Geordie version in our team. I think its definitely easier to enjoy a proper pint with the hackney hippy's then the charlie skin tights.

Bow is bit of a walk but I like the pubs and beer more than the HW offerings.

PML is defo the easy route in and out of the ground. I'm just pleased most people don't use it.

I would say the fashion between 'hipsters' and 'essex boys' is fairly interchangeable

The 'hipsters' introduced the beards, sleeve tattoos look, which then migrated out to the Essex

'hipsters' then went long on sliders and socks, and that has now been embraced by young'uns from Loughton to Southend

I used it once first season and the old bill were stopping fans from going to it as they were marching away fans that way. This was Vs Middlesbrough.

Essex has gone a bit too sculpted eyebrows for my liking.
