Football FanCast guest columnist Kevin Parry would like Sullivan and Gold to either put up or shut up with regards to taking over at West Ham.
Another day and yet more loving towards West Ham from Sullivan and Gold, with the latter trying to justify his feelings of the club based on that he lived across the road from the ground and that they were his mother's favourite team. That is all nice to hear, but are you going to save our football club, or not, Mr. Gold?
I think the general feeling towards the Ex-Birmingham duo moving into Upton Park is positive, let's be honest anything must be better than our current situation, right. I know some supporters have questioned their achievements at St Andrews and whether they were actually as successful as the picture that they like to paint, but looking back at how far their team has come during their tenure at the club, you would be a hard-pressed Birmingham fan to suggest that positive strides haven't been made. You would think that any takeover of West Ham is likely to follow a similar pattern, which is to bring stability initially and then steady progress.
My own view on the situation is that drastic action needs to be done, if the scaremongering that both Sullivan and Gold have brought up this week, with regards to our future outlook actually rings true. Maybe it is simply a ploy by them to warn off any other potential saviours that have yet to be privy to our accounts, or they simply want to be appreciated all the more if they do take over the reins, I don't know, but I personally wish they would either put up or shut up, because the last thing we need is our hopes built up, if they have no chance of reaching fruition. We as a football club have had far too many promises broken over the years, especially when it comes to possible takeovers that you begin to take it with a pinch of salt after a while. I would welcome them like any potential saviour with open arms, but I have always felt that actions speak louder than words.
