ExWHUemployee speculates that West Ham owners would have been surprised by size of protest

West Ham drew 1-1 with Everton yesterday. But there was a slightly more ‘surprising’ result off the pitch.

The Hammers fans protested before the game.

According to the Express, between 500 and 2000 fans took part in the march aimed at protesting against the West Ham owners.

And reliable Hammers insider ExWHUemployee has speculated that David Gold and David Sullivan would have been surprised by the strength in numbers that partook in the march:

West Ham fans are sick and tired of broken promise after broken promise.

When the east London outfit moved to the London Stadium in the summer of 2016, the Hammers were expected to embark on a new era of success. The 60,000 capacity arena was supposed to enable West Ham to compete financially with Europe’s biggest clubs.

But that hasn’t happened at all. In fact, they have regressed.

And the board continue to show complete oblivious disregard to the club’s current plight. Relegation is a very real prospect this season.

And if West Ham do go down, the the finger of blame will be pointed firmly at Sullivan, Gold and Karren Brady.

Hopefully yesterday’s protest will make them realise that they need to spend some money before the end of this month.

Otherwise the value of their asset will plummet beyond all recognition with the prospect of Championship football on the horizon.
