Surely it should be the opposite way round.

And no, the capacity will be fine. It'll be larger than Eastlands was when Manchester City moved in, and they struggled to fill it for years. West Ham are at a similar level now as City were then - established in mid table and looking to use the new stadium to give some momentum to move upwards.

Stadiums are ranked on various criteria, like capacity, facilities, general transport links.

I think West Ham will sell out that 54,000 from the start. As a football stadium, the jury's out, but its location/links are second to none.

By the end of this new stadium wave, London alone may have five.
