West Ham United boss David Moyes has spoken out defending the club’s under fire owners David Sullivan and David Gold.

A large group of West Ham fans will protest against the owners before tomorrow’s crunch home game against Everton.

Hammers United was set up to try and ‘improve things for all West Ham Supporters young and old’.

With over 8,000 members and counting the group of disaffected Hammers fans are pushing to be recognised by and engage with the club’s unpopular owners.

All is not well on and off the pitch at West Ham

West Ham go into the game 16th in the Premier League table, just one point off the relegation zone.

Ahead of the protest – and their 10-year anniversary at the club – Sullivan and Gold went on a charm offensive this week.

The duo broke their long silences to partake in interviews with The Evening Standard and talkSPORT respectively.

Both backfired spectacularly serving only to further infuriate supporters with their comments.

Speaking in his pre-Everton press conference, though, Moyes defended the duo.

Moyes defends Sullivan and Gold

Moyes, grateful to be in a job after another 18 months out of the game since he was let go by West Ham the first time around, told the press he has nothing but praise for Sullivan and Gold.

“I’ve found the joint-chairmen very good,” Moyes told the gathered press (whufc.com).

“That might sound strange for someone who was let go by them 18 months ago, but I’ve always found them very straight. They talk correctly.

“I’ve got to say that I think both David Sullivan and David Gold, since I’ve been here, have always been willing to help.

“They’ve always been seeing if there’s anything I need and I would only say good things about them.”

Time will tell if owners are truly ‘willing to help’

Well Moyes needs a new right-back, at least one midfielder and a striker this month.

So time will tell if the owners are willing to help him get those through the door.

By February 1st that will be abundantly clear.

Until then it seems supporters will continue to make their feelings clear, starting with the protest on Saturday.
