Just surmising,but it would enter my thinking,if a potential buyer...plus we don't know if they
had some inside Info on the Iconic that no one else knew...again surmising
Everyone knew the Olympics were coming to London at that time and so everyone knew there would be a stadium built to hold them in. I would be very surprised if the future of that stadium wasn't very much in the thinking of any of the groups who were doing due diligence on the club at the time.
And I'd bet there were very few people gullible enough, even then, to believe all the "We're West Ham Fans" bollocks that was being touted around even back then.
Oh yeah certainly mate,crossed my mind before there was mention of us,got really excited
if i'm honest.......But it's the degree of insider knowledge that's the factor..
So many ifs and buts....did they deliberately sit back and let the Spuds and Hearn scupper us
buying it,knowing a rental deal could be in the offing.....lots of shit goes on we don't know about...
Spuds never had any intention of moving there IMO,was just to stop a Business rival making
what they saw as a good deal,65,000 seater stadium,encroaching on their catchment area...
Can't have that.
Maybe their shenanigans fell right into Sugos hands.....who knows......
