Read the ES piece last night. Sullivan states since we’ve moved to the London Stadium we’ve spent £205m net on players.

Is another lie?

Had a fish around for figures and by my (poor, admittedly) math we’ve spend about £135m net in the last four seasons. In season 2017/18 they actually made £11m.

steps ~ Pretty close,imo - Much of the £11m profit was spent on those inspired loans of Zaza and Tore,if I recall.

2017/18 was the season of Bilic and then Moyes wasn’t it. Ayew and Payet were sold which may of made up the £11m made.

2016/17 was the first season at the LS. It was meant to be our transition year. They spend £38m net. This is the season we bought 11 players in.

Then in Pellegrini’s first season they spent £77m net and this season £30.6m net.

Again, I’m just going on figures ive pulled from various transfer sites.

nothing is going to change with this mob , we are all pretty much agreed on that , any new owner would need to be prepared to waste circa 100's of millions just to get us in our current state , to get us flirting with top 4/6, which in our full history has only happened once or twice . when i was in my teens there was a BIG 5 , arsenal, spurs,man utd , liverpool & Everton , add Man city & Chelsea and generally not much has changed bar the last 2 clubs mentioned in the hierarchy of the top flight in 40 years apart from Leicester 4 years ago . , and the vultures are already circling around their best players .

i've witnessed many a west ham team take a battering over the last 45 years , but nowadays it seems we are beaten before we even start , both off and on the pitch , the whole mindset of the club is second rate , and that does start at the top

Unlikely I would have thought, he doesn't get all the dosh from a club sale until 2023.
I have no idea of the significance of 18 months, apart from a conspiracy going round Twitter right now.

He and his stooges have been here 10 years and we've made no progress whatsoever. We had a better team then than we have now and I was 10 years younger. I'm trying to figure out, if I'm still around in 10 years time, what state we will be in then and will I have wasted my entire life supporting a crap football team. I won't have it

Sullivan thinks he's some sort of Mafia Don. A bully that thinks he can do what he wants. Well, Mr S, you and your cronies are going to feel very uncomfortable in the coming weeks and months, as you can only take us for mugs for so long.

Anyone know where I can get a horses head from?

Everyone saying that all the contracts (Moyes etc) are only 18 months long because that's when Sully wishes to sell up. I am saying that makes no sense to me unless there is something I don't know.

I've just been speaking to a guy who went to University with Sully.

Says he was as bright as they come and said he was a West Ham fan even then.

There is no significance. It is not long term nor short term (compared to his last arrangement) thereby is simply an arrangement everyone is OK with and everyone can assess after this period.

Let's be honest, he is in absolute ****, but he isn't stupid.
Certainly wasn't born with a silver spoon in his mouth

The part of the ES standard that riled me most was he pretty much placed all the blame for where we are on Pelligrini! What about the 8 years prior to that you midget ****wit
Also saying Pelligrini was the wrong fit for West Ham. Bollox. He is exactly the right fit if he had been given the right backing

Wasn’t Pellegrini making some quite basic tactical and management errors ?
