West Ham fans are furious
West Ham fans are up in arms at the moment as a crisis has broken out at the London Stadium.
Since the 2-0 defeat to Wigan in the FA Cup, Hammers fans have become a lot more vocal about the problems at their club.
One of the main gripes concerns the club’s signings in the last window.
While Joao Mario arrived from Inter Milan and Jordan Hugill was signed from Preston, fans don’t believe the club have done enough.
Hammers & Stoke’s Joe Allen
But according to West Ham owner David Sullivan on Monday, the Hammers tried and failed to sign Stoke’s Joe Allen in January.
Sullivan made his comments during an interview on TalkSport.
Of course, cutting to the chase, West Ham failed to lure Allen from the Bet365 Stadium.
And that’s after the Irons were prepaid to break their club transfer record offering 25 million pounds on the Welsh international.
Allen joined Stoke from Liverpool in July 2016. The 27-year-old has made 29 appearances this season, scoring four goals.
David Sullivan on angry West Ham fans
When it came to addressing the anger from West Ham fans, David Sullivan made the following statements:
Chants of ‘sack the board’ and opposition to myself and co-owner David Gold will achieve nothing.
I ask the supporters, every one of them: get behind the team. Through unity we can turn it all around.
We don’t want to find that a disappointing season has turned into a disastrous one.
It’s worth noting that West Ham fans are planning a huge protest against the club’s board ahead of the Premier League match against Burnley.
