Sam Allardyce has said that the Olympic Stadium needs to be the home of a successful team.
The Hammers boss said: "There is one thing you have to bear in mind, you cannot build a white elephant and the white elephant is a great stadium and no team - disaster.
"There is always a lot of disruption when a club decides to move from somewhere which has a huge history.
"It is always going to be upsetting to some of the very loyal supporters we have but in the end, when you look to what happened at places like Bolton, I couldn't have built that sort of success without those fantastic facilities, not that a facility has ever produced a player but it doesn't half help."
West Ham host Liverpool tomorrow.
