West Ham United supporters are far from happy with David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady, as signified by the fact that they held protests before the Everton game, which were reported on by The Telegraph.
If there is one way that the Hammers board can begin to appease fans, it is likely going to be through action being taken in the January transfer market.
However, ExWHUemployee has indicated that won’t be happening anytime soon.

The Hammers have been linked with various names, such as Ross Barkley, Franck Kessie and Karl Toko-Ekambi, but if a move is to be made, it seems as though it will come right near the end of the window.
This has led to plenty of frustration among fans, with one admitting “I’m expecting zero investment”, while another called this way of working “embarrassing”.
West Ham could seriously use a new centre-midfielder and striker – at the very least – with Carlos Sanchez and Albian Ajeti having been afforded just 113 and 128 minutes of Premier League football this season – indicating how inadequate they have been.
Call yourself a West Ham expert? How much did each of these January signings cost?
What a joke

As well as showing their frustration about the impact this could have on the pitch, West Ham fans have also shown their disgruntlement towards the board in the replies.
The feeling among fans is that they are owned by penny pinchers, with one claiming “the board have killed us as a club”.
What makes things even worse is that they feel “the owners will never change”, meaning that they are stuck with this strategy for as long as they are at the club.
I doubt it will happen, gets left too late every time.
The owners will never change, Moyes will realise this when he is hung out to dry when the window closes

Ahhhh. The old “don’t go to bed” trick.

Makes sense, anyone they sign this week they have to pay an extra weeks wages to

Done with the club will support the team but as said previously will not spend another penny on merchandise or anything associated to the club.
I’m gutted to feel like this but the board have killed us as a club @davidgold #GSBOUT
