West Ham fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to a suggestion from a Crystal Palace supporter that we are ungrateful regarding our owners.

In other news…Report: West Ham believe they are winning race to sign lethal goalscorer

The Hammers fans have had to put up with a lot from David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady over the past few years.

In fact, the rift between fans and owners really started to intensify around the time we moved to the London Stadium from Upton Park back in 2016.

Win lose or draw, the fans never forget what the owners have done to this great club. We always support the team…not the regime.

Sure, Sullivan has spent big on some high calibre players over the past few years. None of the big money signings have worked out though.

We would accept anything as long as the owners displayed honesty and integrity.

West Ham have a net spend of £31 million per season on average since 2016 (Transfer League). The scattergun approach to those transfers has left us in the state we currently find ourselves in.

A Crystal Palace fan on Twitter didn’t quite see it that way, however:

The lad really couldn’t miss the point more if he tried. Delusional or ignorant. Or both!

West Ham fans reacted to the tweet in brilliant fashion…
