The losses against Leicester City and West Brom this week has seen a number of prominent media people to join in criticism against the West Ham board.
Sun columnist Mark Irwin penned a scratching article in the printed version of the Sun last week calling the owners “jazz mag moguls” adding ” it is probably a good job the supporters are now so far from the pitch that they cannot see exactly how bad the football has become.”
Sun reporter Duncan Wright joined in over the weekend by saying “Alarming how a Premier League club can quite get itself into a mess in terms of completely unbalanced and inadequate squad as West Ham. Serious lack of identity and vision. And you just know they are making it up on the hoof ahead of deadline day too.”
On Sky’s Sunday Supplement programme Guardian Journalist Jonathan Liew said “It’s a Premier League club in London and generates huge amounts of cash and it is being run like a fruit stall” while Daily Telegraph sports writer Matt Law said there was a complete lack of investment in infrastructure saying “It’s just a shambles, an absolute shambles”
Tony Cascarino told TalkSport listeners “A lot is wrong upstairs at West Ham, I am not a fan of the owners and there’s a lot going on”
The Daily Mail’s chief sports writer Oliver Holt said “Is it not even vaguely puzzling that Karren Brady is held up as a paragon of business savvy and yet she runs a club that is a total car crash”
Journalist Seb Stafford-Bloor from 442 said: “It’s increasingly clear: West Ham are a club drifting towards disaster” later adding “On West Ham. We’re urged not to talk about soul and culture, but those who disrespect those commodities tend to be punished for doing so.”
