Brady has 'sold the club down the river'

Karren Brady has been heavily criticised by a Sky Sports panel - who accused the vice chairman of "selling the club down the river".

Journalist Henry Winter, whose 2008 testimony was considered key in the decision to award damages in favour of Sheffield Utd during the Tevez affair attacked Brady and her fellow Boards members on this morning's Sunday Supplement.

"I don't think it helps the club when you have three three main individuals at the club talking all the time," he said. "Certainly two of them talking all the time - one in a set piece situation and Sullivan with his various interviews, or whatever.

"I think that's not good for the manager - whoever it is."

And Winter's criticisms were supported by fellow scribe Oliver Holt, who claimed that vice chair Brady had "destroyed" West Ham United's loyal fan base by moving the club to Stratford with little thought for the consequences.

"She writes a newspaper column that occasionally scuppers transfers in and out," said Holt. "But my problem with her is that she thought she'd got the deal of the century - as she called it - by moving to a stadium which had robbed West Ham of its character, destroyed the fan base and destroyed the atmosphere.

"She thought she was getting a deal on the cheap and she's ended up selling the club down the river."

However Brady was defended by Sun journalist Sean Custis, whose newspaper publishes her controversial and heavily-criticised weekly column. When asked whether he felt Brady was "part of the problem" at West Ham, a tetchy Custis snapped: "What do you mean, part of the problem?

"It's a newspaper column that more than occasionally says it how it is. What's wrong with that? She engages with football people about what is happening in football. Surely that's an interesting aspect?"
