West Ham co-chairman David Gold has urged fans to embrace the club’s new home ground at the London Stadium.

At the end of last season the Hammers decided to move from their traditional base at Upton Park to the plush and new London Stadium to take the club further forward.

While they won their first home league game of the season against Bournemouth, things have not gone according to plan since then with a defeat in the Europa League qualifiers against Astra Giurgiu, and a shocking 4-2 loss to Watford last weekend.

The Watford loss was also marred by fighting between West Ham supporters inside the stadium, which further brought their decision to move base under the scanner.

However, Gold feels the problems at their new stadium are not insurmountable, and he urged the fans to completely embrace the idea of their new home being at the London Stadium.  


He took to Twitter and wrote: “None of the problems at our new home are insurmountable.

“We have a world class stadium which we should embrace.”

While this weekend they will be taking an away trip to West Brom, the Hammers will look to get back-to-back home wins over Accrington Stanley and Southampton next week to create a more positive atmosphere inside the London Stadium.
