Board accused of 'mismanagement'

Respected journalist Oliver Holt has accused West Ham United's Board of Directors of mismanaging of the club.

The North West-based writer used his weekend column in the Daily Mail to criticise David Sullivan, David Gold and Karren Brady, who he said had "ripped the heart" out of the club by leaving Upton Park for the shiny lights of Stratford.

"The mismanagement of the club by Karren Brady, David Gold and David Sullivan is finally facing some scrutiny," penned Holt, in response to the news that the club had appointed David Moyes as Slaven Bilic's replacement.

"The triumvirate of Brady and the men recently labelled the Dildo Brothers by Sporting Lisbon executives have ripped the heart out of the club by moving it from Upton Park to the dead zone of the London Stadium in the name of ambition and profit.

"Now, as always in football, it is the fans who are paying the price," he continued. A club that used to be many fans’ favourite second team is now one of the game’s lost souls.

"Part of Brady’s legacy is that most neutrals no longer care whether West Ham stay up or go down. When it comes to trying to salvage a reputation, she is a long way behind Moyes."
