WEST HAM'S transport problems have certainly not been abated by the news that their home games against Spurs and Liverpool in the first two months of the season have been chosen for live TV coverage by ESPN.

The clash with Tottenham at Upton Park has been moved to Sunday August 23 with a 1.30pm kick-off, but as with the original date, engineering works on the day means that Upton Park station will be closed and there will be no trains on the District and Hammersmith & City lines.

There is a similar story for the Liverpool game, which will still be played on Saturday, September 19, but will now kick-off at 5.15pm for live coverage on ESPN.

Once again, there are no trains to Upton Park that day.
