When West Ham moved to the London Stadium, the fans were promised star-studded signings, gorgeous football, European fixtures and all the trimmings.
But if anything, David Gold and David Sullivan’s decision to leave Upton Park behind and open a new chapter in the club’s history has taken the Hammers backwards. They just about avoided a relegation dogfight last season and a top ten finish is already looking beyond them this term after a dismal start to the campaign.
After a shock 3-0 defeat at home to newly-promoted Brighton on Friday night, the east Londoners now find themselves in 17th place and will fall into the relegation zone if Leicester City beat Swansea this weekend.
While plenty have vented their frustrations at manager Slaven Bilic, a significant section of West Ham fans believe the problems stem further than that.
Indeed, many are pointing the finger at Gold and Sullivan as well as Karen Brady. Here’s a look at some of the reaction from Twitter…
Wish Gold, Sullivan and Brady would take themselves, Bilic and that stadium out of my club!

It really feels like Sullivan and Gold want us relegated. Why would you not learn from your mistakes? Avram Grant spring to mind?

Sullivan and gold need hounding out of our club. They are the ones to blame.#parasites

As much as Slav needs to go, nothing will really change until Sullivan sells. Lie after lie has meant discord between club and fans. #whufc
