Sullivan: unity is the key to our success


Filed: Monday, 5th February 2018
By: Staff Writer


Co-chairman David Sullivan has called for fans to 'unite' behind the team for the remainder of the campaign.

The under-pressure co-owner appealed to supporters today just a matter of hours after it was revealed that a supporters' action group had raised almost 25,000 for an anti-Board march next month.

Speaking in a statement read out by Board-friendly Sky Sports and Talksport presenter Jim White on his radio show this morning, Sullivan implored fans to get behind the team instead of continuing with anti-Board chanting - as was heard loud and clear at Brighton on Saturday.

"Chants of 'sack the board' and opposition to myself and co-owner David Gold will achieve nothing," said a belligerent Sullivan in the statement. "I ask the supporters, every one of them: get behind the team.

"Through unity we can turn it all around. We don't want to find that a disappointing season has turned into a disastrous one."

Sullivan's request did appear however to largely fall on deaf ears - with callers to White's radio show united in their condemnation of Sullivan and his fellow Board members.
