So what does this mean, as we already have a Vice Chair? :chin:

Is this potentially curtains for the baroness?
I am sorry - I got that wrong. DK can appoint a Joint Vice Chair.

I think it was wishful thinking that I made that error!

Seems to me, Sullivan is waiting until 23rd March 2023.

I mean time will tell but everything i hear about this guy seem good, that's a very measured article especially when you compare to the PAI fiasco. Evolution not revolution is the way to go imho.

Forthright, sincere, honest.

The complete antithesis of GSB.

In that article, he both acknowledged mistakes he has made in the past with Sparta Prague, as well as directly told us not to expect any big investment in January. It takes a bit of inward self-reflection and courage to do that in what effectively served as his introduction to West Ham fans.

I’ve got a lot of time for that.

I think PAI was Sullivan's way of getting round the non-disclosure bit. It was like a promotianal video for Kretinsky, written by Sullivan IN CRAYON :crylol:

Fingers crossed he is as good as the early signs suggest.

What would success look like to you guys? What do you want/expect from him over the next couple of years?

Not quite how it works on here

You tell us what you want and people will answer in kind, this isn't a place for fishing for information without expressing your own desires and opinions,

It's a good read sounds promising also to be honest he ain't going to say we are going to spend in January anyway and give other teams the heads up to say how much we are going to spend

This page should be shared with anyone who talks about West Ham fans being unreasonable.

All this guy has done is sound professional and he's getting a :newthumb: from a pretty jaded group of people when it comes to ownership of the club.

What an unnecessarily arsey response to what was a genuine question.

For me, true success looks like us seeing the best of the new fella, with GSB exiting at the earliest convenience. But that might be too much to ask as I get the feeling that Sullivan at least would like his family involved even after he's gone.

As long as the results continue on the pitch, Moyes sticks around, and we invest shrewdly where we need it most, that would be short to medium-term success.

That said, you could have just asked the question back to me instead of accusing me of "fishing for information".

There was me thinking this was a forum.

Been in talks from early in this calendar year. Pretty much agreed months ago.
