Plenty of West Ham United supporters have let it be known numerous times that they want the current ownership ousted from the East London club.
David Gold and David Sullivan own the majority of the club and have done since 2010, initially starting off with a 50% share before increasing it further.
The ownership has been questioned at times, and they were even suggestions that the pair could sell after Slaven Bilic and the team secured West Ham’s highest-ever Premier League finish when they placed seventh last season.
Gold and Sullivan, as well as vice-chairman Karren Brady, took steps to improve the club’s stature in the game by moving to the Olympic Stadium – later renamed London Stadium – in Stratford last summer.
The move was met with some controversy, with some fans disgruntled by the decision to leave Upton Park, where West Ham had been based for 112 years.
Groups of supporters complained that the new 57,000-seater stadium lacked the atmosphere that the Boleyn Ground created, and there were also smatterings of violence that broke out between rival fans in the early stages of the season.
The club have failed to build on the previous campaign as they currently reside 12th in the Premier League after winning just nine of their 29 fixtures.
They also sold their star player Dimitri Payet in the January transfer window after the midfielder refused to play again for Bilic’s side.
Gold, who regularly interacts with fans on Twitter, responded to a supporter’s question on the social networking website by claiming that the board have no plans to sell.
We have no plans to sell the club. dg https://t.co/T0A7NeNbL9

@davidgold In that case, u really need to start delivering on your promises, because right now, we are a total shambles from top to bottom.

@davidgold Start planning for something then, cos the arrogant indifference is starting to grate. You might not care, but we do.

@davidgold Surely the point of moving was to attract wealthier owners? DS said the LS only adds £12m so if the club won't be sold, why move?

@davidgold not what I wanted to hear.
