West Ham win OS bid

West Ham have been granted preferred bidder status for the Olympic Stadium - for the second time.

London mayor Boris Johnson confirmed this lunchtime that the club has been selected as the London Legacy Development Corporation's "unanimous" choice as chosen cadidate to take on the 99-year lease.

West Ham were initially granted sole tenancy of the stadium in March 2011 by the Olympic Park Legacy Committee.

However that decision was overturned following a series of legal wrangles - spearheaded by Tottenham Hotspur and Leyton Orient owner Barry Hearn - seven months later, leading to a second bidding process.

More to follow on this soon...

''Mark. Why have you got a problem with Karren and the Davids making money? When we were about to be wound up who came to the rescue? You wanted Fernandes I guess.. that's turned out really well for QPR hasn't it??

Be careful what you wish for...''

''To all you happy Hammers it looks like its time to mourn as we lose our home for a bundle of cash for Del Boy, Rodney and Cassandra to pocket as we all have to journey to Stratford aka Hackney. If you all care for your club start a splinter club as it's Wimbledon FC all over again. Let's get West Ham AFC starting as do we want to be called Westfield Utd? No, nor me so let's stand and make it clear that Gold, Sullivan and Brady they are the only people that will make money from this.''
