Many West Ham United fans are far from happy with the news that PAI Capital will make a second bid to purchase the club this week.
The Hammers are in a good place at the moment on the pitch – they are in the Europa League group stage after finishing sixth in the Premier League last term. However, there has been a distinct lack of transfer business conducted this summer, and owners David Sullivan and David Gold are far from popular at the London Stadium (talkSPORT).
There appears to be interest in purchasing the club from PAI Capital, which has been backed by a number of former players (Daily Mail). As per The Telegraph, another bid will be lodged this week, but that does not appear to have pleased some supporters who believe that the delay in the takeover is damaging their transfer prospects. Indeed, a few think it could even be an excuse from the current owners for the lack of new arrivals.
Would you like PAI Capital to buy the club?
The news was shared on Twitter by @central_louis, and it attracted plenty of attention from West Ham supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the news
“Here is our excuse for not doing any transfer business:”
“There goes any hope of us getting signings then”
“Don’t want them to. Circus act”
“What company gets Ex players to try and drum up support, this is so West Ham shambolic. This is getting in the way of us getting players in such bad timing, can’t believe I’m saying it but I’d rather stick to what we have.”
“I don’t recall Roman Abramovich or Sheikh Mansour releasing tidbits to the press about an upcoming bid (or 2nd bid), they just went and bought Chelsea and Manchester City. This is all a distraction and excuse for the lack of transfer activity”
“PAI capital ruined our summer transfer. ORRR GSB set this up not to bid for any players”
