Campaign group WHU's View say they are 'baffled' by comments made by co-chairman David Sullivan regarding a proposed poll of supporters over the club's potential move to Stratford.
The group - who are set to meet vice-chair Karren Brady later this week in order to express their concerns about the club's impending bid for the Olympic Stadium - admitted to being surprised at a recent comment by Sullivan in which he suggested there would be no consultation of the wider fanbase.
"Karren Brady sent the Committee an email on the 12th December stating that, 'We are happy to commit to conducting a poll as this really would form part of our intended consultation process'," read the group's latest missive.
"We are therefore baffled by recent comments attributed to Mr David Sullivan in an interview with a fan website in which he states there will be no poll.
"Hopefully this confusion will be cleared up and the Committee look forward to an open and constructive discussion with the Board."
The WHU's View group was set up last year to represent the concerns of a number of fans regarding the club's lack of consultation over their impending bid for the Olympic Stadium - a move that would see West Ham United leave the Boleyn Ground, the ground the club has called its home for the last 107 years.
WHU's View are calling upon the Board to conduct a poll of all season ticket holders and Academy members with regards to their plans for Stratford. Bidders hoping to take on the stadium post this summer's Olympic games have until 23rd March to officially register their interest.

''I would love to us remain in Upton Park with a revamped East Stand and a capacity of 45,000 but can see the owners vision in the Olympic Stadium. A massive stadium with excellent transport facilities for both Hammers Fans and tourist followers alike, making it an atractive Package for a major takeover bid someday. The problem I have is with so many sports envisaged for the stadium this would make the desired takeover a doubtful proposition.''

''While I don't personally like the idea of leaving Upton Park, how the hell can I expect or demand anything from the owners? We are lucky we get any sort of news from them... It's their millions!''
