Sunday Supplement discuss ailing West Ham


Filed: Sunday, 4th February 2018
By: Staff Writer


Tony Henry's dismissal and the ongoing unrest at West Ham United was one of today's topics of discussion on Sky Sports' Sunday Supplement team.

Journalists Neil Ashton, John Cross, Jonathan Liew and Sam Wallace (Telegraph) were all unanimous in their criticism of the club's Board regarding their governance of the club, which is set to be challenged by supporters planning a march next month.



"It's not ridiculous to claim that West Ham are the worst-run club in the Premier League" said football writer Jonathan Liew. "There's an old saying in politics - voters will forgive a Government that makes unpopular decisions but they won't forgive incompetence.

"I think West Ham fans are at that point - they don't believe their owners are the least bit competent and once you've brtoken that thread of trust, it's very hard to get it back."

Meanwhile Wallace added: "The fans have been moved to a new stadium and they don't like it. They don't like the team and they're in another relegation battle.

"When a club makes mistake after mistake, it ceases to become a coincidence. And I don't think the transfer policy that Henry oversaw was particularly effective either." To watch the discussion in full, watch the video below.
