Posh Chairman reveals Sullivan regret

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has claimed that West Ham Chairman David Sullivan has admitted that he wished he had signed Brentford striker Ivan Toney in the summer transfer window,

After two prolific seasons for Peterborough, Toney left the club last summer to join Brentford that could reportedly be worth up to £10million.

Since then, Toney has gone on to score 24 goals in 31 Championship appearances for the Bees, helping them to once again compete for promotion to the Premier League this season.

Now, however, it seems as though Sullivan and West Ham have been left to reflect on a case of what might have been, had they made their move when the striker was still at Peterborough.

Speaking on the Hard Truth Podcast about Toney and the Hammers, MacAnthony explained: “Tell a quick story. David Sullivan rang Barry Fry today, he said ‘I wished I’d listen to you in the summer!’ Because David Moyes did like Ivan Toney a lot. He said ‘that boy is probably going to go for £30 million plus in the summer’.

“But West Ham have done brilliantly so I don’t think they have any regrets at all.”

  1. Why would you believe anything Barry fry says.
    The man talks nonsense.

    • I assume you don’t know him! He is a terrific bloke who talks brilliant sense, a great friend and a proper football bloke who virtually bankrupted himself saving Posh at one stage

  2. Someone should tell the Peterborough chairman that David Moyes is in charge now, and we don’t two-bob Sullivan anywhere near the decision making anymore.

    • Can’t argue with that statement. The separation that we now have between the chairmen and the manager (Moyes who IS making those decisions) works for us all now.

    • Sorry but saying that now will just **** fans off imo .. easy to say that now ….

    • Why are so many of our fans such sad pathetic winkers
      We are sitting 4th and the team have smiles a mile wide as do most of our fans
      But still negative attitude from the small GSB out movement just have a word with yourselves and enjoy while we can

  3. Interesting piece Sean. If only Dave Sullivan had bottomless pockets. I’m sure that Barry has ‘tipped him off’ about promising lads before. Toney looks like he would have been an investment worth the chance. Ah well – back to reality.
