The new ground is only about 3.5 miles from their former home.

There were reports earlier this season that the Westfield shopping centre (Stratford) was closed to football supporters. No idea whether this is still in force but here is a link describing the one way system which was in place in August.

Link below features two short videos by West Ham supporters from the same site linked above, offering a guide to pubs in the area surrounding the new stadium.

I have absolutely no idea whether colours would be a good or bad idea, but bear in mind there's been quite a bit of trouble following games at the new place. Personally, I never wear colours anyway.

All the best.
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Why on earth would you drink in a shopping centre from 12 ? There are thousands to choose from across London and then go over to the ground.

I'd say that it's always less hassle not wearing colours to away games, especially if you want to get into all the pubs beforehand with no trouble.

Absolutely no colours up at this game unless you like walking a tightrope with a nasty fall.  Upton Park was bad enough but apparently the new stadium has attracted a lot of their old troublemakers on the look out for away fans.  Just my view but always safer to play it low key until you are in the ground.

Lots of nice comments about the team and how we play on kumb.....not so many about TP but a begrudging respect that his style has changed since his days at Stoke...many Hammers fans predicting a draw or defeat for them....

My mates that support other teams have run into trouble even without colours.

Re drinking leytonstone isn't a bad shout (I live there so can vouch). In terms of time to the ground they shut off various routes on match days and funnel fans from what I know.

If you want ales try Bermondsey (has good breweries) then get the jubilee line to Stratford

Can't stand West Ham scummy club with scummy owners, fingers crossed we go down there and wipe them off the pitch (that we all paid for). I think Chadli will have a big game for us I think he's starting to come into abit of form again.

We need to get ahead in this game looking at the bench. Strong bench though. First time in a while, would rather Leko was in for Olsson. MUST BE QUestion marks over Evans.

I don't think there's question marks over Jonny, it's just that he's been out for a while. This might be a way to ease him back in gently.
