Fans call for Brady's resignation over OS 'fiasco'

West Ham supporters have called upon vice chairman Karren Brady to resign in the wake of numerous problems that have marred the club's move from Upton Park to Stratford.

Brady, who received a 1million bonus for winning the Olympic Stadium contract is being held responsible by supporters for the numerous issues that have blighted the club's opening games at the stadium.

And now some have called for Brady - whose image was booed by fans last weekend when shown on the giant TV screens at the Olympic Stadium - to take responsibility for the problems by tendering her resignation.

"Whoever outsourced contracts on things as important as health and safety and being in charge of the seating arrangements, and provided a migration policy that's caused fights, led to arrests and bans and has left kids crying and feeling scared, should bite the bullet and get the sack," wrote KUMB member Colours Don't Run.

"If Mannygate led to one of our staff being let go for what was a minor administrative error by comparison, I think this whole fiasco is also a sackable offence. I'm led to believe it's Lady Brady and if so, she should go."




Those thoughts were echoed by fellow KUMB member Wembley1966, who also believes Brady should fall on her sword. "She hasn't delivered the stadium in the manner that would have been expected and definitely not in the manner of the 'greatest stadium migration, ever!' he added.

"Every day we are headlines in the papers, TV, radio and web for the things that she was tasked to deliver and hasn't. There's no contrition from her at all - just threats to ban anyone who causes problems that should never had the opportunity to arise in the first place."

However StaffordIron believes that firing Brady would be a step too far - although he maintained that at the very least, either she or the club should apologise to supporters for the manner in which the club's migration has been handled.

"What I'd personally respect more than anything is for her and the club to come out and say 'actually we haven't handled this perfectly, there are some serious issues both safety-wise and logistically that we urgently need to fix'," he said.
