The club were recently named as the No.1 choice to move into the £429m venue and they will now give their fans the chance to air their views.

The London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC) made the announcement last week, although there are a number of loose ends to sort out before the deal is finally completed.

The SAB will discuss the LLDC's decision at Tuesday's emergency meeting which will be attended by vice-chairman Karren Brady, joint-chairman David Gold and ex-West Ham striker Tony Cottee.

A statement on the club's official website reads: "The LLDC decision represents a huge step forward but, as the club has stated throughout, highest-ranked bidder status does not mean that West Ham have at this stage agreed to the move and it remains the case that we will only do so if the final proposal is right for the club and its supporters.

"The time for supporters to have their voices heard is now and a more intensive consultation process will commence on Tuesday evening.

"The club will consult with SAB members to agree how the club takes that consultation process forward.

"The club stands by its commitment to conduct full supporter consultation regarding the proposed move, including the polling of supporters.

"West Ham fans can be confident that wherever there is an opportunity for West Ham to input in the decisions going forward, supporters will be at the forefront."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
