An angry West Ham United fan group is demanding answers from vice-chairman Karren Brady after posting a deluge of questions to her on Twitter.

It is not the first time Brady has found herself under fire from one of West Ham’s prominent supporter groups.

West Ham fans have been protesting against co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold and Brady this season.

More than 8,500 Hammers supporters joined a march against the board before the win over Southampton.

And another mass protest – led by disaffected West Ham fan group Hammers United – was planned for the home game against Burnley in April.

West Ham fans won’t put grievances on hold

That is on hold for now due to the coronavirus pandemic.

But the grievances of West Ham fans are clearly not on hold.

Earlier this month Brady was criticised for blocking the influential West Ham United Independent Supporters Association on Twitter.

The WHUISA regularly highlights misgivings it has with the way the club is run.

Hammers fan group demands answers from Brady

And despite being blocked, the WHUISA is demanding answers from Brady and the owners after posting a deluge of questions to her on Twitter using the hashtag ‘AskKarren’.

“AskKarren – First tranche of questions for our part-time CEO, Karren Brady (we’d tag her, but she’s blocked us),” WHUISA said on Twitter.

The group then proceeded to post 11 questions to Brady, which we have listed below.


Q1) When are you going to stop writing your columns in the Sun newspaper?

Q2) When are you formally going to recognise fully independent supporter organisations in WHUISA and Hammers United?

Q3) When are you going to stop trying to create your own constructs in an effort to potentially restrict open, meaningful and constructive fan engagement?

Q4) Why do you think that it’s good practice for the Club to communicate only with fans through a body it has created itself rather than enabling and empowering an independent forum?

‘What value do you feel you bring to West Ham United?’

Q5) When are you going to focus solely on West Ham rather than your growing range of outside commitments?

Q6) Do you see that your negative commentary on players both in and outside West Ham is embarrassing for the club and has resulted in clubs refusing to deal with West Ham?

Q7) Why do you feel the need to comment negatively on players at West Ham United and can you see how this might have a detrimental effect on players thinking of joining us in the future?

Q8) What value do you feel you bring to West Ham United?

Q9) Do you understand why so many supporters are unhappy with the change to our badge and what this represents?

Q10) How effective do you think the move to the London Stadium has been, and why do you think so many supporters did not renew their season tickets at the time of the move from The Boleyn?

Q11) Why do you think a significant number of supporters are so unhappy with your approach and position (at) West Ham?

As yet Brady has not responded to any of the questions.
