Leamouth South looks pretty cool! I like the whole proposed area, all very harmonious.

The new stadium will be great. However, I find it a pity that another traditional football club is moving away from their traditional home grounds in the middle of a classic neighborhood. It won't be the same!

The Olympic Stadium is actually closer to West Ham's original homes (and closer to the West Ham neighbourhood) than the Boleyn Ground. True it won't be nestled in the Upton Park neighbourhood, but being so made expansion difficult.

The greatest pity for West Ham in my opinion is the distance between the stands and the pitch. But as a South Londoner, their pities make me smile

True, expansion would have been a problem there. I was there once, back in 2008. I loved how the stadium was in the middle of a neighborhood, you don't see that too often anymore. Home games of Arsenal were also fantastic, just the walk towards the stadium before the game! That's what most of the football culture is about For my club I walk across several industrial lots and a highway underpass, it's lame!

Yes, and it looks just as cheap and nasty.

I agree! Our (as an American) embassy architecture should evoke the imposition of power in foreign countries, but this looks like a world's fair pavilion for some Scandinavian country.
