A lot of West Ham fans are agreeing with a Sheffield United fan who has mocked their home ground following a post on Twitter.
With football currently postponed due to recent events, the Premier League are trying to devise a plan to complete the season which was halted in March.
The Hammers are in the middle of a relegation battle as they sit 16th and only two points above Aston Villa in 19th who have a game in hand, via BBC Sport.
Has the London Stadium ruined the atmosphere?
Sky Sports tweeted the latest update regarding West Ham’s thoughts on how to finish the Premier League season, and they reported that the Irons would like to finish the campaign but they are against playing the remaining Premier League games at neutral venues as they feel it ‘would compromise the integrity of the competition.’
One Blades fan decided to make light of the situation, tweeting that West Ham “haven’t played a “home” game since May 2016”. This was when the club moved out of their beloved Upton Park to move to the London Stadium, via West Ham.
Normally this might anger fans on social media, however many Hammers fans agreed with the post, as they feel that the East London side have lost their atmosphere since the move. One fan even said, “You’re spot on”.
A running track runs between the supporters and the pitch, meaning that it is harder for many to see whilst it is also more difficult to generate an atmosphere that you would normally get at home grounds.
Here is what they had to say following the tweet:
