Leaving 'proper football stadium' for 'soulless bowl'

Some West Ham fans have been reacting with sadness to the news that West Ham will definitely be leaving Upton Park.


Upton Park has a sense of atmosphere. It's one of those grounds where the fans are close to the action. No more of that, then!


Bye bye Upton Park, another proper football stadium gone in favour of a soulless bowl. #amf


I'm sorry West Ham are leaving Upton Park. One of my favourite traditional grounds with block of flats overlooking it. #Renovate the Boleyn
