Orient chief Hearn blasts Hammers

Hearn’s Upton Park counterpart David Sullivan this week voiced his

anger over Tottenham’s rival bid for the venue. But Hearn has hit

out at Sullivan, telling the Evening Standard: “If he is worried

about Tottenham then he can only begin to have sleepless nights

about the aggravation I’m going to give him if he moves on my

doorstep. “This is total hypocrisy on his part. This is a case of

Tesco moving next to the little sweet shop on the corner as far as

I’m concerned. “A club that has a 30-35,000 support base is moving

into an 80,000-seater stadium. It obviously means very cheap

tickets and it means a death knell for Leyton Orient, the Football

League’s second oldest club.”
