New ground but does it need a new name?

Thursday 25 August 2016, West Ham United 0 Astra Giurgiu 1 - Europa League, Play off, second leg - London (Olympic) Stadium

My third visit to the stadium - first two for Athletics and Rugby League and now for football.

First of all it is not perfect for football but the view is OK, transport is OK and people should stop moaning- West Ham got a good deal, the Astra keeper was outstanding tonight and West Ham go out to the Romanian club for the second year running.

But what I did not like the crowd at times were as hostile as they were at Upton Park - not a great place for away fans.

The griynd has been given a West Ham makeover- and that is acceptable but the name?? London Stadium - just waiting for naming rights? But with the Hammers getting such a good deal anyway why not just leave it as the Olympic Stadium?
