Sullivan repeats no sell pledge

david-sullivan-west-ham-upton-park_3339474David Sullivan has repeated his pledge not to sell West Ham in an interview for Sky Sports News. The West Ham Chairman said:  “We have zero desire to sell the club unless the King of Saudi Arabia or the Sultan of Brunei come along. We’re not going to sell to an American or Chinese consortium. We might sell a minority shareholding to clear our debts, but in all probability our kids will take over from us. We love West Ham, we’re not going anywhere. If someone offers us a couple of hundred million pounds tomorrow, we are not selling – it is as simple as that.”

David Sullivan was speaking at an event to publicise the release of a film he has produced called ‘The Fall of the Krays’. The follow-up to ‘The Rise of the Krays’ is released in cinemas and for download on 1 January.

  1. Good
    Let’s keep our club British,

  2. Oh gawd not another film straight to DVD….. oops sorry I didn’t mean to write that!

    Oh good another fine example of glorification of East End Gentry – can’t wait!

    • Well we shall be covering it – sorry to disappoint AGAIN!!!!

      • I’m not disappointed by it – Sullivan probably makes a bundle from this stuff – personally I’m not interested in anything to do with the Krays, they caused enough misery and mayhem when they were alive!

        Ah well, they loved their Dear Old Mum – never mind ay!

  3. Preferred the Rise & Fall of Reginald Perrin,lol

  4. While the “rise of the Krays” wasn’t exactly the Godfather it was a decent piece of entertainment and i for one will watch the follow up, far from glorifying the violence it showed the Krays for what they were, a vital part of East London history…

  5. A vital part of East End criminal history…
