Former Hammer questions Jack’s message

JamesFormer Hammer David James has questioned Jack Sullivan’s message on Twitter on transfer deadline day saying he could have a negative impact on current West Ham players and morale.

The Chairman of the Youth Supporters Club Jack Sullivan posted a message on twitter just before 11pm the January transfer window closed on Monday. saying “Sadly despite trying to do eight deals today everyone has collapsed in the last 2 hours and are now unlikely to do any business”

The former Hammers keeper has suggested that young Sullivan should not have posted the message.

James speaking on BT Sport on Tuesday night said “That’s a lot of players to bring in, a lot of them were developmental players, or up and coming players, weren’t they? You know when your club has failed to bring in eight players and you look around and think: ‘Was it me who was going?’ I don’t think it’s a good message to send out.”

  1. I don’t think he ment all 8 were coming at once do you David,having ongoing talks with several players at the same time makes good sense and most were because we injury problems last Saturday,
    Most fans have posted that they are happy with no business and that we have the best squad we have had for a long time,
    As for the development squad having worries about others coming in,they should be more worried that they are not getting a chance now,
    Everton,Southampton and Crystal Palace do not wait until the players are pensioners before they play them,if they are good enough put them in when we need them and get rid of the dead wood

  2. I don’t have much time for David James as a pundit – indeed nearly all of BT’s lineup are duds – but he does have a point!

    DG tweeting that we shouldn’t go to bed – all the rumours and then the tweet from Jack Sullivan about failing on 8 potential signings was deeply depressing.

    The squad is ok but is thin – backups for the defence were urgently required along with more legs in midfield. The collapse of the Carlton Cole transfer was a disaster – from quite a few points of view.

    All in all – a disastrous Deadline Day – roll on the 38 points and safety!
