West Ham could be about to name stand after Billy Bonds

West Ham United could be about to do something to the London Stadium that will help to please their fans.

According to ExWHUemployee, who has become a reliable insider for information about the club, the Hammers could be about to name a stand after legend Billy Bonds.

It is understood that the East Stand could be renamed after Karren Brady had confirmed that the Irons had agreed to a deal to herald a former star at the stadium.

ExWHUemployee told the West Ham Way podcast that the Irons were to recognise their former player and manager with the gesture.

Bonds had played near 800 games for the club over a period spanning more than two decades as a player, before then becoming the manager of the side for four years in the 90s.

The Verdict:

Despite having played for London rivals Charlton Athletic at the beginning of his career, Bonds spent almost the entirety of it playing for West Ham.

Many would argue there is not a man more worthy of being recognised after he won a number of awards, including being named Hammer of the Year by fans on four separate occasions.

The move by the board to rename the stand could help to ease tensions with the fans about the move to the London Stadium, whilst also making the place feel just that little bit more like “home”, something the West Ham fans have yet to call it.

The Irons will make their return to the ground on Saturday with the visit of Tottenham Hotspur when the Premier League campaign resumes following the international break.
