West Ham United have been turning heads with their transfer business this summer.

The penny looks to have finally dropped for Hammers co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold after the angry protests which marred last season and money is being spent.

Many West Ham supporters feel betrayed over promises and pledges made when the club left its beloved Upton Park for Stratford in 2016.

Issues with the stadium have not helped, particularly the distance between the stands and the pitch.


But the long and short of it is that had money been spent on a top quality management team and players which translated to improved results on the pitch then the majority of West Ham fans would have been content.

Fans have been hugely excited after watching Sullivan and Gold back new manager Manuel Pellegrini to the tune of more than £90 million.

That included the record transfer of Felipe Anderson from Lazio for £40 million, as reported by the likes of talkSPORT.

But no sooner had the Brazilian’s contract been inked than West Ham fans started bickering on fans’ forums and social media over their opinion of Sullivan and Gold.

Multiple polls began to pop up on Twitter asking fans what their current opinion was of the Hammers board.

They attracted thousands of votes and most leaned in favour of the divisive owners.

That has led to accusations of short memories and arguments breaking out between supporters.

But it comes at a time when fans should be basking in the relative glory of finally spending the kind of money needed to help them reach the the feted next level.
