Many fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed Jason Burt’s report regarding David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady.
According to Burt’s report for The Telegraph, the club’s owners will “deserve credit” if West Ham go on to secure Champions League qualification via a top four Premier League finish this season.
Burt went on to reference Gold’s claim back in 2016 when, upon moving to the London Stadium, the 84-year-old stated: “There’s absolutely no reason why we can’t be playing in the Champions League in the next five years.”
However, in reaction to The Telegraph sharing the report on Twitter, numerous fans of West Ham flocked to have their say on the matter. Many appeared to strongly disagree with Burt’s opinion, stating their belief that the only reason the club are in such a good position in the league is because of the management of David Moyes and his players’ performances, and that the Irons have been successful despite GSB’s running of the club, not because of it.
Do you think GSB deserve credit for this season?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to Jason Burt’s report?
“If West Ham qualify for Europe, it will be DESPITE the owners’ amateurish football operation.”
“Give them credit? Oh behave, Jason. Let’s wait for the summer and Moyes needs a £30m striker and is told he only has £5m and has to sell to buy to get anyone else in. It’s what they do best. #GSBOUT.”
“Not an OUNCE of credit, not a smidgen, not a single atom.”
“We have no strikers and put 2 GKs on the bench to make up our numbers! Get in the sea!!”
“What a truly woeful take this is.”
“Do me a favour.”
“When journalists don’t have a clue.”
“What drivel!!! Building a squad that can compete is needed before you start buttering up the owners. The team is strong from players hard work but the squad isn’t due to the owners.”
“If this isn’t the wildest statement I’ve ever read.”
