West Ham are in the relegation mire with seven games remaining.

David Moyes is under huge pressure from West Ham supporters, many of whom were against his return following the sacking of Manuel Pellegrini.

Chasm widens between fans and West Ham owners

Many are still angry over a host of broken promises regarding the move from their beloved Upton Park to the London Stadium.

Fans do not feel the stadium is fit for football.

There is a chasm between the fans and the board. One that is matched only by that between the terraces and the pitch at the former Olympic Stadium.

And the feeling of resentment is growing stronger with each passing week as West Ham slip ever closer to a disastrous relegation.

Moyes has been questioned and ridiculed for his team selection, tactics and in-game management. But most fans lay the blame squarely at the feet of Sullivan and Gold.

Paralympics star blasts Sullivan and Gold

Now two-time Paralympic tennis silver medalist Lapthorne has hit out at the owners. He posted an emotional message on Twitter following the 2-0 defeat to Tottenham.

“I’m not even angry anymore I’m just sad,” Lapthorne said on Twitter.

“Sad we left everything I grew up with and enjoyed with my old man for this.

“They (Sullivan, Gold and Brady) have well and truly destroyed the club I love don’t know if I’ll be going back next season I hate what they have done.”

Many West Ham fans share Lapthorne resentment

Lapthorne’s post got plenty of responses and support from his fellow West Ham fans.

Many copied in David Gold to the message to highlight the feeling of disgust among Hammers supporters.

West Ham’s grave situation shows no sign of letting up either.

The Hammers face Chelsea next and are reportedly set to be without their only proven striker Sebastien Haller for another two weeks (Claret & Hugh).
