Game watched: West Ham 1 1-0 Man Utd

West Ham are a team who have been in and out of the Premier League. They were 1st in the Premier League for the 1993-94 season and remained there until the end of the 2001-02 season. They returned in the 2005-06 season and remained until the end of the 2010-11 season. Upton Park has been completely rebuilt on 3 sides of the ground – the Bobby Moore and Trevor Brooking stands behind the goals in the 1990s and the main stand in 2001, making it a modern 35,000+ Stadium. However, West Ham look likely to relocate to the new Olympic Stadium in a few years time, rather than re-develop the remaining older side of the ground which would have taken capacity to over 40,000. This move was previously challenged by Tottenham Hotspur and more recently by Leyton Orient. If they move to the Olympic Stadium, they will be leaving a stadium with an awful lot of history. Going there by car, it is best street parking about 15 minutes away and then walking to the ground. Travelling by tube is an easier option with Upton Park tube station so close to the ground. Prices here are similar to typical London Premier League prices these days.
