The Stadium Debacle

Despite Lord Coe chastising the Spurs bid for the post Olympics stadium and, seemingly, coming out in favour of West Ham's bid (on the basis that they will leave some form of athletics legacy) it is interesting to note that 18 months after winning the bid to host the games the Olympic Board had in fact rejected both clubs.

The Telegraph reports that both bids were rejected at the time, because the Board wanted no diminution of the athletics "legacy".

Time and financial reality often crush naive dreams, and it seems now that the Board will have to accept a bid from one of these two football clubs.
