London has had the Olympics three times now, and I cannot see it ever getting a 4th.

To be fair another city, eg Manchester may want to bid at some time in the future, however there are so many major cities around the world from countries that have never hosted it, I cannot see any city in GB getting it in our lifetime.

I think they need to make a hard decision - either leave it permanently set up in 'West Ham' configuration (ie with the scaffold stands), or knock it down one side at a time and build a proper football stadium there.

There is a running track next door to the London Stadium, there's your athletics legacy!

The loss-making cost over the 99 years that West Ham have signed up for will be £2BN. Spurs' ground, a proper football ground with fancy retractable pitch etc will cost £800m, less than half.

Bite the bullet time rather than faff about for another 10 years and be another £200m down

"Well, as I said before, we are only 6 points behind 4th from bottom with the prize of an additional £65 million (minimum) if we stay up. So, we'd be bonkers if that wasn't the top priority. Nobody's giving up on staying in this league." CPFC2010, 5-11-2013
