ExWHUemployee has claimed that it is more likely that David Sullivan will pass the club down to his children rather than sell to rich foreign investors.

And that will fill Hammers fans with dread.

Sullivan, and his co-owner David Gold, took over the club in 2010, and they have overseen absolutely no progress.

West Ham have enjoyed one really good season. In the 2015/16 campaign they finished seventh under Slaven Bilic, just four points outside the top four, but it has been downhill ever since.

The east London club currently sit in 17th spot in the Premier League table, just one point clear of the drop zone. And relegation down to the Championship is a very real prospect for them this season.

Sullivan and Gold run the club purely as a business. If they remain in the Premier League, they are happy.

 

West Ham fans want the manager and board out. But according to EXWHUemployee, things could only get worse:

Jack Sullivan, David’s son, is a very unpopular figure amongst Hammers fans.

He is constantly given far too much power at the club, considering just how young he is. And West Ham fans will be praying that he doesn’t take control of the club from his father.

If the east London outfit are to make real progress they need new, ambitious owners. But as things stand, that seems to be nothing more than a pipe dream for Hammers fans.
