My favourite stand in the ground.

It would be good if they stuck more toilets in though (especially for the ladies).

Away fans have access to the same number of bars and toilets as the home fans despite being outnumbered 3:1 in the AW. They don't know they're born.

I'm no fan of the Arthur Wait stand - and not greatly enthused by the prospect of being forced to move there next season. But what is that guy on - oh, Steve Parish should just spend some money on developing the ground? What do you think he is trying to do? We don't all get a brand new stadium built for us with public money. And as for views - at least the seats in the Arthur are in the same postcode as the pitch.

Can't understand why the soft mockney chav's moaning. He's only got to put up with it once a season for a couple of hours.

I've always loved the New Stand, as much as The Holmesdale when it was terraced, but it's The New Stand for me since seating. Much better view near the front on the halfway line.

Probably mostly true, but many of us will remember in the days of standing at Upton Park behind the goal. Didnt matter how tall you were, youd be lucky to see half the goal & certainly never the goal line, unless you were right at the front.

As a London rate payer who has helped subsidised their new stadium, Id be more than happy for any Hammers fans who would like to contribute funds to improve the area of our stadium of which they are so critical.

Ironic really (Iron-ic geddit?), because my first visit to the AW was with my West Ham supporting uncle, who hailed from Leyton and taught me what Apples and Pears to climb and not to play in the Frog and Toad in case I got hit by a Jam Jar.

Back then (about a year or two after the Arfur was finished) the only seats were right at the back (which is where we went as my uncle was already a pensioner then and wasn't going to stand, I doubt if I would have seen much either in a 40,000 crowd) - later in life, i.e. the usually terrible 1980s - there was always loads of room on the yawning AW enclosure, you could stretch and go to sleep if you wanted too, which was usually a better option than watching people like Tommy Langley and Trevor Aylott hitting the floodlights from six yards in front of goal.

Of course Hillsborough changed all this, plus our meteoric rise from gates of circa 5,000 by 1985 to the current era, continuously selling to near capacity.

The old ground at Upton Park was actually much smaller than Selhurst Park for decades - so it truly is ironic, sorry to hammer it home but that's modern football for you you really wouldn't Adam and Eve it, as me old Uncle Ted used to tell me.

Makes me wonder what that West ham fan would've thought of the stand if he'd been there in '79 v Burnley.

Record Gate at Upton Park - 42,000 Hamsters v Spurs in Division One

Record Gate at Selhurst Park - 52,000 Palace v Burnley in Division Two

Up yer bollocks Amsters!

Pwopa nawty east Landan geeza doesn't like lack of gentrification in Norwood. You couldn't make it up. If he wants a restricted view try going to Liverpool away, there's pretty much no point in going in some of the seats they sell.

West Ham fans are a bunch of weirdos, this is a fact that will never change.

As an AW season ticket holder, I'd far rather we developed all the ground sensibly than having an out of kilter futuristic main stand and the AW as shabby as it is.

THIS

the fact that away fans in the same stand get better facilities than the home fans is just not fair, the club really need to address this - the photo of the large vacant space on the corner would be a great starting point!

Would be really keen to pitch this to the club and get some supporter backing

If you go by floor size, number of cubicles etc then both male and female away fans have a greater number of toilet facilities available to them than home fans. This is sometimes rectified by smaller away followings that allows the 'neutral' zone to be opened to home fans but generally away allocations sell out and therefore the 'neutral' zone is generally only available to away fans.

The situation for female Palace supporters in the AW is particularly awful.

Should'nt worry ....anyone thats travelled to Upton Park back in the day would i presume not give a toss what they bleat about these days....nothing wrong with the Arthur theres plenty of us from the East Midlands that quite like an away day at Palace.QPR away end,now thats worth moaning about,the concourse anyway,not enough room to swing a cat and i sympathise with Watford as their concourse behind the goal is if anything even narrower so they suffer every 2 weeks.
