West Ham are a club in crisis at the moment.

In other news…Report: Blockbuster £40m transfer could trigger West Ham’s first summer signing

We barely avoided relegation last season, and our chances of having a successful campaign next term look bleak.

We are still yet to make a summer signing, aside from Tomas Soucek’s loan deal being turned into a permanent one in July.

Hammers boss David Moyes has sold Albian Ajeti, Jordan Hugill and Roberto.

And it seems as though Grady Diangana could be heading for the exit door at the London Stadium soon.

The Telegraph reported yesterday that West Brom have had an £18 million bid accepted for the 22-year-old West Ham winger.

Those claims were backed up yesterday by ExWHUemployee on last night’s West Ham Way podcast.

We are a club on the verge of anarchy. The unrest is bubbling and has now reached boiling point.

Another season of struggle ahead

The club’s co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold obviously don’t care about the club as much as us fans do.

They are clearly happy to sell our prized assets just to increase profits. And as long as we stay up, they don’t care.

So the question must be posed…Are they only doing all of this now because they know there will be no fans inside the London Stadium to vent their frustrations when Premier League action resumes in nine days time?

There is a very good chance that that is the case. Would the duo have been brave enough to sell one of West Ham’s brightest young stars with a Premier League game in front of 60,000 people just around the corner?

It’s highly doubtful.

Tension has been building between the fans and the owners for quite some time now. And it culminated in numerous pitch invasions against Burnley a couple of years ago.

That surely would have been the case once again if fans were allowed in the stadium against Newcastle.

We are bang in trouble at the moment. Let’s hope the recent takeover talk is true and Gold and Sullivan aren’t at the club for much longer.

We have suffered too much and we deserve way better.

It’s time for a change. And if West Ham are to not only survive but flourish as a football club, Sullivan and Gold need to move on asap.
