West Ham: Fans react as takeover rumours emerge

West Ham: Fans react as takeover rumours emerge - West Ham News

Many West Ham fans are reacting to the news that the club are of interest to a group who want to takeover a Premier League club.

Tripp Smith is putting together a US consortium with a view to buying a controlling interest in the club from co-owners David Sullivan and David Gold, according to a report from the Daily Mail.

The Hammers also have been linked with Red Bull, via The Daily Star, who currently own Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and Austrian outfit RB Salzburg, however nothing seems to have come about. The fact that they are now linked with a takeover from other parties is very interesting but for now it is uncertain how true either rumour surrounding the Irons is.

However, the fan base have been in heavy conflict with the owners for many campaigns, including earlier this year when they protested against them ahead of a game against Southampton (The Sun). Incidents such as that could see Gold, Sullivan, and Karren Brady choose to sell.

Fans are not happy as the club only sit one place above the relegation zone, and this is only due to goal difference. More misery was piled on as they lost 2-0 against main rivals Tottenham Hotspur last night.

West Ham fans gave mixed reactions to the news, with quite a few sceptical, perhaps on the back of nothing materialising from the Red Bull rumours. Meanwhile, another supporter begged the current owners to “sell up.”

Hammers fans, what are your thoughts on this news? Comment below!
