Brady exit poll results revealed

West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady should pack her bags at the club according to a Claret and Hugh poll of almost 1,400 readers.

Over 79% of those voting believe the time is right for her to be paid off and leave the club completely as a clean break allowing a new CEO to be bought in.

A further 10.5% of readers said the Baroness should remain in her current role heading up non-football activities for the club while the remaining 10.5% believe she should be moved sideways in a non-executive role with the same Vice-Chairman title on the board as an advisor allowing a new Chief Executive to come in to run the non-footballing side day to day.

With no realistic possibility of a potential buyer for the club in its current position, the chance of a change of owners appears to be remote short term so a change of leadership at the top of the club might be the next closest thing.

Karren Brady and David Sullivan have worked together since 1989 when he recruited her to work at his paper the Sunday Sport at the tender young age of 20, by the age of 23 she was appointed as the managing director of  Birmingham City so there is a 31-year history together.

David Sullivan is known to value loyalty so it would remain to be seen if he would replace Baroness from her executive role at the club to break up a thirty-year business partnership.

  1. Can we have another poll. How many believe Karen Brady has ever performed any other role for mr Sullivan over the years?

  2. Obviously with the team in its current position no potential buyer will make an offer.They will wait to see if we remain a premiership club or a championship one,in which case we would be cheaper.Even if an offer did come in I don’t believe Sullivan would sell unless it was a ridiculous amount.Unfortunately he and Gold still believe they are the greatest thing to happen to West Ham and as for Brady,she is purely an employee on a crazy amount of salary,but she is made from the same mould as Sullivan and Gold,so I can’t see her going either.

  3. Hugh It would be nice if you could ask KB if she could provide a list of her actual achievements to justify her salary

  4. I remember this from 2012 –
    “Brady said she had shown scores of supporters on an advisory board, representing a cross-section of the club membership, the detailed plans for the move,the finances underpinning the optimism for a switch from the 35,000-seat Upton Park and the opportunities to grow the club and the area.
    Brady said all of the supporters have had to sign a strict confidentiality clause before hearing the plans but claimed “all of them have agreed with what I have presented, zhere hasn’t been a single dissenting voice”.
    Eight + years of that type of rule is quite enough and it’s about time our great club allowed it’s supporters an independent voice, rather than hide behind a “SAB” or “OSB” or what ever it will be called next!!
    Most of her achievements/big salary have been earned on the back of “misstruths” and “huge exaggerations”
    It is time for her to go, but I fully expect that she will have five million or so good reasons to wait it out till a big sale.
