Sullivan reveals 30 million bid for player

DSWest Ham Chairman, David Sullivan told Jim White from Sky Sport News:

“We’re really pleased you could come because we want to share the experience with as many people as possible. Tomorrow is a huge match and huge occasion, and we want the world to see. It’s a mixed-emotion day, and we’ll wish we aren’t moving. It will be sad. But we’ll wake up the next day and realise it’s the right thing to do.

“It’s the right thing to do because, here, we can’t get the capacity above 45,000. If you want to go forward you have to have a better stadium and we won’t get a better one than this from an emotional, historical point of view. But we can’t upgrade this one. We’re so lucky the Olympic Stadium is in our borough and, together with the council and the government, we’ve saved the stadium from looking like a wreck and a slum, like it is in China or Greece.” 

On transfer news Sullivan said “We’ve put in a bid today for 30 million euros for a player, we’re going to make a £20-25m bid for a player later this week” but he added he wouldn’t be buying both saying.  Sullivan said we are planning to spend £30m,£40M,£50m in this summer transfer window.

He told Sky cameras we will get an extra £12 million of  income from moving to the Olympic Stadium next season but we will lose over £1m of catering income and another £1m in pitch events that we currently earn at the Boleyn ground from renting out the pitch and stadium tours.

  1. Mystic Bradders is back and gazing into his crystal ball as we speak…He will no doubt forsee that it will be a human being, with hair,arms,legs and 2 feet and his flock of tactical gurus and followers shall guess who it will be for the next 3 months…Then simply describe the chosen one as a minger after watching him for 15 mins in a pre season friendly..

    • Well Sam Byram has been written off today by some of the experts.That means he will now go on to have a brilliant career,haha.This seasons Mingers-Ogbonna,Obiang,Antonio,Randolph.All written off after about 15mins of their first matches,now all favourites among the experts who wrote them off,haha

      • Ah yes the mingers society all ridiculed after 15 mins by the YouTube talent scouts, whoever we sign they will join the group after one misplaced pass or if they have the cheek to make AC run for a ball instead of giving him the proper service lol..
