Had a thought Steve.

With west ham moving to Olympic stadium soon. What's the chances of us using uptown park for one season ? the year they go and do all the new work at Selhurst rather than one side at a time one year at a time?
I could put up with it for one year at Upton Pk ?
Think it's couple of years away? If we stick all the money we've made so far into a pot plus money from next year could be an idea? Don't think I've seen that idea mentioned before

Very unlikely I'd say.

I've said in another thread that there is no chance of this happening because the club have already sold the ground that Upton Park is built on to a property developer Galliard - this was announced February this year. This is all to start in 2016, I highly doubt that the property developer would be willing to wait another year just for us to re-build Selhurst without paying an absolutely ridiculous premium price to do so. The land available to them is just over double the size of the total land that was purchased by Galliard in the Highbury Development, there is literally no chance that one of Europe's most sought after locations post-Olympics etc. is going to be put on hold for our club to re-develop Selhurst Park.

ground sharing is never an option...simple as that sorry

Sharing the Olympic stadium would make far more sense than moving into Upton Park.

I think any sort of ground share has already been ruled out though - maybe we don't want spend an entire stadiums worth of rebuild in one go anyway.
