Fire Brady? They should give her a statue!

Earlier today KUMB carried a story in which some Hammers fans called for the resignation of vice-chair Karren Brady following the club's move to E20.

And that prompted a number of angry Brady supporters to hit back, with one suggesting that the club should consider erecting a permanent effigy of the Baroness!

"Blaming Lady Brady for any of the current shortfalls in the new stadium is senseless," wrote KUMB member Grandad Hammer. "This is not our stadium, we simply rent it - the responsibility for the teething problems is with the landlord.

"She was an integral part of the team that negotiated the most incredible deal on behalf of the club. Don't believe me? Read what Alan Sugar has to say on the subject. A taxi for Karren? No, a statue would be far more appropriate."

High praise indeed, and words that were echoed by fellow Forum member ToiletDuck. "Brady is an amazing business woman," he said. "She must stay to oversee the change when anything happens to the two Daves.

"Is it her or the London Stadium management company that have arranged stewards, etc? Is it Karren Brady making everyone stand up or forcing people to fight? Not a chance! She knows how to run a club - look at Birmingham before and after her tenure! And look at us before and now."

Reaction to our earlier piece received both positive and negative replies via KUMB's social media channels, some of which you may read below...

* What do you think? Should Brady fall on her sword, or carry on regardless? Comment below or via the KUMB Forum.
