Sullivan: Leicester are not massively better than us

David-Sullivan-001West Ham Chairman David Sullivan was asked whether West Ham can recreate Leicester City’s Premier League triumph.

“I do” answered Sullivan speaking to Sky Sports cameras “I know how they have done it, they have got eleven penalties, lady luck shined on them, they had had virtually no injuries, so they have used 18 players all season. They have had two players who played out of their skin and scored more goals than they have scored in their entire lives. They signed a fantastic midfielder so one of their signings came good and that’s how they have done it. But you don’t see them as massively better than you (West Ham) are and in contrast Man City on a good day and Tottenham on a good day are real good teams and you would say better than Leicester.

But the bottom line is, the table doesn’t lie and Leicester are the champions. I think the big crunch is what happens next year, will four of the big top five teams go back to being at the top. If they don’t then the whole structure has changed. If they do it was just a little blip this year. I think it has all changed”

  1. I’ve said myself that they have been incredibly lucky with injuries. Vardy didn’t miss a game until he got sent off. If we had that luck with injuries we would have won it ( assuming the refs were fair to us )
    In the summer they will need to buy a lot of good players ( and spend a lot ) because with the champions league and defending their title it will be much harder. Can they have that luck again?
    I think they will finish mid-table with a decent run in the champions league if they spend a lot.

  2. Some times you need the rub of the green,this time next year we will be above Leicester but
    we will be in a top4 place and our club will invest well and we have the academy to back that up,
    We can now stay top dog in London regardless of what they spendChelski,Man City and Manure and Liverpoor need at least 6 or more players and a change of style to keep up,
    Now is our time we need to add 4 Top class players to our squad let Slav carry on the good work and hey presto
