Irons takeover rumour makes it about five in a month

Well according to the various rumours it won’t be too long before West ham is taken over given the apparent battle going on to take control of the club!

Incredible it hasn’t happened already given that in the last month Red Bull again been mentioned, the Sultan of Somwewhere or Other, United Arab Emirates Tripp Smith and now Damien Comolli.

Either the club is a hot property and will soon to be under new management despite the crisis in football’s finances or what we are reading is fiction based on media outlets capitalising on the dislike of GSB by a section of fans.

It’s an easy old media hit for hits as with every new week comes a new name which suggests that there’s quite a lot of “who shall we say next” imagination being used by reporters in various newsrooms.

For surely to God if all these various people were seriously interested  something would have escaped through the financial institutions, Financial Tines or alternatives.

Ironically, for those desperate to see new West Ham ownership, relegation to the Championship may be their best but still thin hope.

West Ham’s value would immediately be dropped as a non Premier League club as was the case with the likes of Wolves.

However, in the real world the current owners have no desire to sell so the whistling in the wind looks set to continue for some while.

  1. I do hope there is some substance in this and we can finally rid ourselves of the lying trio, you wont post this as anti GSB..

    • Substance in which rumour or all of them? You appear to have missed the point entirely like so many. I have no problems publishing it but calling people liars without evidence is dangerous Babel. I’ll leave it and let it take its chance with them

  2. As Hugh mentions, its a baseless story. No evidence is given to support the story, only that this is a different consortium then previously mentioned. There are no quotes attributed to anyone involved, so until someone from a consortium states that they are indeed in talks with the current board, or the current board states it themselves, then I cannot believe there is any substance at all to all these rumours. These media driven rumours seek only to dived the pro-current board and those that want rid of them further.

  3. Maybe interested parties don’t want to push too hard too soon. If we’re relegated the price would reflect the club’s diminished status in commercial terms.
    Ironically (no pun intended), perhaps GSB would be prepared to sell if we’re relegated. Perhaps they could no longer live with their own abject failure.
    While I don’t welcome the prospect of relegation, I do relish the opportunity of rebirth that a new, fresh abs committed management could bring to the club. COYI.

  4. Be careful what you wish for! Under GSB we were rescued from bankruptcy, got us back into Premier league and now 8th longest serving club.
    We have not progressed as wanted but apart from the usual top few no one else has either. Those who constantly bash GSB cheered when we got a top manager in Pellegrini and then allowed him to dictate spending on players. Well we all know where that has got us.
    My advice to Board is ignore the moaners as they could not run a welk stall!!
