Fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, in which ExWHUemployee discussed news regarding the Hammers’ January transfer budget.
According to Sky Sports journalist, Dharmesh Sheth – speaking on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast – David Moyes was given a January transfer window budget of between £20m and £30m by the West Ham board.
This was reportedly in order for the 57-year-old to find a replacement for Sebastien Haller, who left east London for Ajax in a £20.25 million deal towards the start of January.
And, after one fan questioned whether these figures were correct, ExWHUemployee confirmed that was indeed the amount he ‘was told’, however, that it was ‘hard to know what to believe’ from the club at times.
In reaction to his tweet, fans of West Ham flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing furious with the West Ham board, as they appear to believe that the figures reported by Sheth were simply a diversion tactic from GSB.
Do you think Moyes had money to spend?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to ExWHUemployee’s transfer tweet?
“That’s why our fan base is #GSBOUT. It’s not about a window, a manager, a stadium or any given position in the league. It’s being lied to on so many occasions that we just don’t know what to believe anymore. As well as the embarrassment that comes with the circus.”
“They might have said he has to appease us but the club do not have £20-£30mil spare. So someone’s lying from within the club.”
“Why did they wait until today to tell him this? Something doesn’t add up. Sullivan doing his usual and shifting the blame onto the manager no doubt.”
“If so that’s heartbreaking.”
“What type of board gives their manager £20m-30m on the last day when the window has been open for 30 days? I don’t blame Moyes for not signing anyone on the last day.”
“I find this very hard to believe. #GSBOUT”
