According to reports in the Daily Mail, West Ham United co-owner David Sullivan says his children begged him not to sign Robert Snodgrass during the January transfer window, and Irons fans have been quick to show their support for the Scot after he criticised the comments on his official Twitter account.
Everyone tagging me in this like your all suprised 😂
Thanks for your support
MR CHAIRMAN 👍🙈 https://t.co/XZAr9rfTsC

The east London outfit brought the winger to the London Stadium earlier this year following an impressive first-half of the campaign with Hull City, but the 30-year-old only made 15 appearances in all competitions – with many of those coming from the substitutes’ bench – and struggled to make an impact.
The Scotland international joined Championship side Aston Villa on a season-long loan deal during the summer, but he clearly wasn’t impressed with Sullivan’s comments or his lack of support given the Irons are still Snodgrass’ parent club.
West Ham supporters took to social media to show their solidarity with the wide-man, and while one said “we all hate him too”, another said “West Ham fans are on your side”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Don't worry Rob. We all hate him too

Fair play to you, I’m absolutely embarrassed by this interview and I can only imagine how Jose feels actually still being at the club!!
How have we let this clown bring us so far down? We’re an embarrassment.

I know this dosent really count but as a West Ham fan I'm actually really sorry that he said that and it is honestly embarrassing to have him as a chairman it really is
