David Sullivan

Thousands walking away will speak to Sullivan louder than words


Thousands walking away will speak to Sullivan louder than words

Thousands of fans walked away from the London Stadium at half time followed by many more during the next 45 minutes…and none of us blame them in any way. It’s the one thing that will speak a lot louder than words to David Sullivan if we aren’t going to see Moyes staring in the movie CARRY ON REGARDLESS WRITES Hughie Southon.

If I were a neutral I’d probably believe it was a comedy but right now it will be a tragedy if this impossibly poor manager carries on a job when he is clearly well past his Hammers sell by date.

Today, for the first time, as one watched him on the side lines he had the face of a man who hadn’t a clue how to change anything.

And afterwards he incredibly declared that this was not about the manager or the players – is there anybody out there at all who can tell me what that is supposed to mean other than him not wanting to take the sole responsibility AS HE SHOULD.

Claret and Hugh follower Neil McCarthy and our former ratings man messaged me to say:  “Let’s bet fair. The scoreline flattered us. It should have been a lot more. That type of performance has become normal now so it was only a matter of time before our luck ran out.

David Sullivan is a money man and seeing maybe up to 25 per cent walk out will talk to him in a big way. Once fans have done that way before the end of a game it makes giving up their season tickets that much easier.

There is no way forward for David Moyes except towards the stop/go signs by Stratford Station or any available taxi. Fans boycotting matches could well bring that about sooner rather than later.

  • master says:

    That big section with the fans is the smoking area at half time.

  • Kent says:

    I’ve never had time for part-time supporters who walk out when we are losing. They’re an embarrassment.

    For better or worse. Except the entitled leavers don’t do worse it seems.

  • It was an awful performance, there can be no disagreement about that. But I totally concur with Kent’s comment that the so called ‘fans’ walking out, even before half-time were an embarrassment. Real fans would stay and support the team through thick and thin!
    Just how did walking out help the team?
