A new report has gone some way to proving a point for angry West Ham United fans.

A large and growing section of Hammers supporters are protesting against co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold.

Fans are furious with the duo for the way they have run the club over the last 10 years.

The West Ham faithful are demanding Sullivan and Gold sell up to owners with more resources and ambition.

The under fire owners have always been at pains to claim they do invest significantly in the club.

Angry fans want West Ham owners to sell up

Gold even claimed last week that West Ham fans should be grateful to them for keeping them in the Premier League (The Mirror).

But a new report have helped prove a point for disaffected Hammers.

A league table detailing the wealth of owners of all 20 Premier League clubs has been published by talkSPORT.

Sullivan and Gold come up short in Premier League’s bottom five

And Sullivan and Gold come up short.

The duo have a combined worth of £1.2billion. Much of it is Sullivan’s and much of that is tied up in property.

That leaves West Ham in the bottom five in the Premier League in terms of owner wealth.

The likes of Brighton, Southampton, Crystal Palace, Newcastle, Leicester, Aston Villa and Wolves are all better off.

West Ham potential there for all to see as fans hope for takeover

But West Ham’s potential is there for all to see. The club was recently named the 18th richest football club in the world by Deloitte.

It will not give West Ham fans much hope that things will get better if Sullivan and Gold stick around.

Reports that West Ham could be the subject of interest for a takeover circulated last week (Football Insider).

But any hope that could come to fruition is likely to rest on whether David Moyes can keep the club in the Premier League this season.
