According to Claret and Hugh, The West Ham board met yesterday for their monthly board meeting, with two key issues on the agenda – how to move forward in light of the global health crisis and how to raise money in order for David Moyes to bring in some fresh faces this summer.
The Hammers insiders also suggested that Moyes is looking to spend around £45 million this summer.
The 2019/20 Premier League campaign was a really disappointing one for West Ham.
The Hammers have clearly regressed since moving to the London Stadium from Upton Park in the summer of 2016. And most hammers fans blame co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold and vice-chairman Karren Brady for their club’s lack of progress.
Now is the time to put all of that behind us as a club, however, and take the step up to the next level.
Sell to buy
If Moyes manages to sell the likes of Felipe Anderson, Manuel Lanzini, Fabian Balbuena, Jack Wilshere and Albian Ajeti this summer, he should have enough money to bring in the players he wants.
And according to Claret and Hugh, that was one of the items on the agenda during yesterday’s board meeting. A plan to navigate testing times following the global health crisis was also discussed.
Let’s hope that the West Ham owners have a real strategy in place. One that doesn’t entirely revolve around spending money on journeyman players, but one that is based on a vision for the future.
It’s time for us all to get together and back Moyes and his players. Only time will tell whether we are being taken for a ride yet again, however.
