Sullivan: “Most exciting game in my 22 years”


sullivan_5535cDavid Sullivan has declared last night’s epic Third Round FA Cup replay at Upton Park as “the most exciting match I’ve seen in my 5 years at West Ham United and my 22 years in football.”

In a game that was almost beyond unbelievable, the co chairman and chief shareholder said that the match showed how a competition which some think has been devalued over recent years retains its importance.

But he remains concerned over the team’s inability to close down a game that looked there for the taking after we had gone one up and Everton having Aiden McGeady sent off.

Speaking exclusively to Claretandhugh, the co-chairman said: In the cold light of day it was the fourth game in a row we scored first and only drawn after 90 minutes.

“So my brain says we have to improve on that. My heart says it was the most exciting match I’ve seen in my 5 years at WHU and my 22 years in football.

“It was a real roller coaster and showed how much both clubs and both sets of supporters cared about the FA Cup, to West Ham United its an enormously important competition.

“Bristol City are undefeated in 11 or 12 games now, all wins except 2 draws, so we can’t take the next round too lightly.”
