West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold must go cap in hand to Saudi group

West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold must go cap in hand to Saudi group after Newcastle takeover collapse
30th July 2020Damien Charles Lucas



West Ham United’s owners should do the right thing and take advantage of Saudi group’s collapsed Newcastle United takeover

Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund, PCP Capital Partners and Reuben Brothers has withdrawn from the process to buy Newcastle, Sky Sports has revealed.

West Ham fans will undoubtedly commiserate with their equally success-starved Newcastle counterparts.

But as one door closes for the Magpies another could open for the Hammers.

Saudi group reportedly showed interest in West Ham takeover

The Saudi consortium headed up by mega rich Mohammad Bin Salman has been linked with a potential takeover of West Ham in the past (Football Insider).

Relations between West Ham supporters and owners David Sullivan and David Gold and their vice-chairman Karren Brady are beyond repair.

The list of grievances is long and too much water has passed under the bridge.

Fans have been protesting against the owners again this season. Further protests were halted by the global health crisis.


But the sentiment remains.

Of course news of the Saudi takeover collapse is devastating for Newcastle

But West Ham’s owners simply must pounce on the opportunity to sell the club, even if they do have to forfeit a portion of the fee to the London Stadium owners.

In fact if the owners truly care about West Ham then they should do the right thing and go cap in hand to the consortium and try to broker a deal.

After all there have been a series of reports linking West Ham with a takeover this year.

Earlier this month reliable insider ExWHUemployee claimed he has heard from very highly placed sources that rumours about Hammers board member Tripp Smith attempting to form a consortium to buy a controlling stake in West Ham are true.

While Sullivan is a billionaire and Gold a millionaire, the duo clearly do not have the kind of money needed to progress West Ham as a club.
Indeed Sullivan is not cash rich in Premier League terms, most of his fortune is tied up in property.

One only needs to look at David Moyes’s transfer budget for this window to see that is the case (Claret & Hugh). And that is after narrowly avoiding relegation.

West Ham’s owners are dicing with relegation next season if they do not significantly improve the team.

This could be a way out. A way to finally do something right by the supporters.

A way to say ‘we tried but let’s let someone else with real money have a go’.

Don’t forget Sullivan made a pledge back in 2016 (whufc.com) that he would only sell West Ham to Saudi royalty.

Well that opportunity may never be greater than it is right now.

And he must do right by West Ham United by admitting defeat and passing the club on to someone with infinitely better resources.

West Ham’s long suffering supporters deserve to dream

Newcastle fans are suffering 'mental anxiety' following the failure of this sale.

Meanwhile West Ham fans have had their life spans reduced by at least ten years because of the three cunts running our club.

I believed it was an absolute scandal that this takeover almost went ahead. How can we have countries owning football clubs? For me it would've been the end of football.

And I still stand by that. If they were coming in to takeover us then i would be against it.

Especially a cunting country like SA. Backward fucking regime.

The Village Idiot is our regular troll on here, bill.

This thread started off with a number of people saying mean things about the possible buy out from these arab semites.
I challenged why certain semites were fair game while others a protected species and then some people wanted to pretend that Whelan was forced out of his own club for saying mean things about Chinamen.

If it makes you feel better we can all pretend Whelan was pushed out of his own club by the Chinese censors.

Why is anti semitism alt right, I’d have thought you’d be a little more accurate with the Labour Party and Korbyn

GO

Your ceaseless antisemitism polutes this site i dont know how you get away with it. What ever gets talked about you bring up the same old tropes. Why dont you fuck off to some alt-right website where you belong.

Re: West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold must go cap in hand to Saudi group
Yeah it was his comment about the Chinks that got him forced out of his club, the hold these Chinese people have completely destroying all tiers of freedoms in this country is sickening...

Ernie, I don't care either and wouldn't lose any sleep were I wrong.

Only I wasn't in this instance, Whelan was forced out for upsetting the feelings of special class minority A-rab/semites.

There are hardly any top flight clubs owned by Englishmen in England now.

Neither statement is confusing or open to any other interpretation.

That's it

Re: West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold must go cap in hand to Saudi group
I don’t mind ARABS owning the club, but not this scumbag of a crown prince.

Imagine if the tapes of that journalist being tortured and murdered got released. Or they were discovered torturing and murdering someone else.

No thanks. Money isn’t everything.
