CandH exclusive: DS speaks on takeover rumours

sullivan_5535cDavid Sullivan has responded angrily to rumours that the Hammers could be taken over and that secret talks are underway.

The chairman – speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh – has quickly denied the stories following after his son Jack had tweeted there was a zero chance of it happening.

An old story – recycled perhaps in the light of the club’s present run of success – that the Qatari Royal Family  are set to invest in the club – has been brushed off by Sullivan.

We approached the chairman a few minutes ago and he was keen to explain the position and denied emphatically there was any truth in the speculation.

He said: “It’s 100 per cent NOT TRUE. We are in discussions with nobody and beyond that we have absolutely no desire to sell this club to anybody.

” I can only assume  the rumours are being spread by people who are jealous of our success and want to unsettle us. It’s just not true.”

  1. Brady by any chance , or Curtis or both.

  2. I think that’s enough Rugby.

  3. On the wind up again rugby !!!!!
    Give it a rest its becoming boring ???

  4. There is womething wrong with you Rugbyirons.Honestly,you have some sort of obsession with Brady.It is boring & lame.

  5. Spanking the monkey while watching the apprentice SAD SAD
    DID THE CHINESE PM meet our people over here ?
    It’s going to happen one day they have said it will take people with more money then them to take our club to the next level
    For me that will be a level to much,we are a family club and very loyal I can live with out the
    Non West Ham people

  6. Hahaha,Rugby spanking the monkey while watching the apprentice,lol.He does have some strange issue with Brady though.Maybe she turned him down for a date once 😉

  7. Haha Rugby, he likes a woman with big calves and a dominant air, off topic If Brady had piles would it be called the Brady Bunch ?

  8. No problems at the moment with the current owners but I hope the two Daves recognise that the time will come when major investment will be needed for us to kick on to the next stage of our progress. The new stadium will not be the sole answer to that need. The fear is that they will treat our club as a family possession and something to be passed on to the next generation regardless of whether it is good for the club or not.

  9. I think the two Daves have been clear over the last few years that they would happily welcome investment from extremely rich people as long as they hold the controlling share. I can not see them selling up fully for a longtime though. Would be nice if someone bought the shares the icelandics still own.

  10. The 2 Daves can do what they like,and i say this knowing that west hams success is their MO and their leadership has led to another win over a top 4 team.In fact they have put in place all the correct ingredients for everybody see the “west ham way”.A tad OTT?,no because they took a lot of abuse during the post christmas samslide,remaind in a dignified manner when fans were baying out for sam to be sacked, so i am enjoying every moment .But due to age there will come a time when the Daves will be unable to continue….buts thats another debate for another time.
