West Ham name-change suggestion sees Gold dismiss Brady’s plans
David Gold has dismissed suggestions from West Ham United's vice-chairman, Karren Brady, that the club could change its name to West Ham Olympic if it moves into the Olympic stadium after London 2012.
"The target I find most bracing is to move the club away from the Boleyn, which does no more than serve a purpose, and take it to - where else? - the 2012 Olympic Stadium only a couple of miles away," Brady wrote in a column for The Sun newspaper.
She then added, much to the alarm of West Ham's fans: "I love the idea of calling the club West Ham Olympic."
Gold, though, quickly dimissed Brady's idea - though he reiterated his desire to see West Ham leave Upton Park - saying the club's name would never change while he remains co-chairman.blog comments powered by Disqus
