"LONDON (Stadium) CALLING!"
|PICTURE OF LONDON STADIUM FROM JUST OOTSIDE THE BAR!|
10 minutes aftaa leavin’ the bar and we were at the stadium which looked smaller than we thought it would be for a 80,000 seater Olympic stadium (56,000 for futbaall when its convorted)
We were situated in the 2nd level and aftaa climbin’ some stairs we entered the away terrace to find that we were miles from the pitch!---and indeed 'miles' from some of wor own fans!, who were at the front in level 1 (again see photos of ‘the gap’ between fans and pitch!)
The dugoots were SO far from the touchline that it would have been easier to jump on a golf buggy to get to the edge of the technical area!

AFTER WAALKIN (nearly!) HALF A MILE FROM THE AWAY DUGOOT
TO GET THERE!
It woz like watchin' a match from ootside the groond from a block of high rise flats! (AND there were anothaa 20 rows behind 'us'!)
So it woz---“Zero to hero’ in the space of 4 minutes for Saivet, when we eventually foond oot who HAD scored!”
2 woodwork strikes then followed from Gayle and Richie which should have put us forthaa aheed, but ‘lady luck’ deserted us once again (just like against Everton)
Gayle then missed a great chance from 15 yards oot, but blazed hiz effort ower the bar and we went in on level torms at the break, cursin' wor bad luck! (and finishing!)
It woz at this point that many West Ham fans heeded for the exits---and there woz still half an hour to gan!?

But we couldn’t hang on az Andy Carroll came on for 'The Jellied Eels Mob' and hiz downward heeder in the box woz followed through by Ayew to bring the score back to 3-2
