Supporters of West Ham United have reacted to the news that there will be a new seating system in the North and South stands at the London Stadium.
According to the Hammers, the Arena Events Group have been appointed to develop the new seating system which will see the goal ends of the ground squared off (via West Ham News), which had some fans concerned.

Gonna still involve scaffolding and bricks being put under supports? Or has our ‘state of the art’ system been improved?

This is a joke a disgrace .
We will in the championship and half our squad will be gone . We will be a mid table team at best in the championship. Worry about the team and coaches first before anything .
We are now second favourite to go down @davidgold

Would you be pleased to see the London Stadium have a more traditional look to it?
No, it's a complete waste of time and money
Yes, it sounds like it will be a great idea for us
The aim of the move is to bring fans closer to the pitch and, according to the report, there will be ‘many by more than four meters’ and will look like ‘a more traditional stadium configuration’ (as per West Ham).
However, with results on the pitch not going the way of David Moyes’ side (per BBC) and the club sat in the relegation zone (as per BBC), fans had more pressing concerns.
your not kidding as a fellow hammer myself i think it is a complete waste of money !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too much too little too late ! With us possibly facing Millwall next season you might want to rethink that idea now ??

What do we think?
Ever since the club moved to the London Stadium, supporters have complained about the ground (as per The Guardian), now, the club is trying to resolve one of the main issues, however, supporters still do not seem appeased.
There is a lot for fans to complain about at the moment (as per Daily Mail) but this one seems like it should be a positive.
