COMMENTARY

co-owner visited Rush Green on Thursday and posed for a picture with Manuel Pellegrini, Sebastien Haller and Pablo Fornals. The senior figure’s snap with some of the club’s summer signings, which was uploaded to Instagram by his son Jack Sullivan, didn’t exactly see him showered in praise. Some West Ham fans mocked Sullivan for looking notably shorter than everyone else in the picture, while others just thought the picture was “cringey”. One questioned why Sullivan felt the need to do such a picture as you never see other chairmen of other clubs pose for pictures like they’re a fan. However, it did seem quite a harsh reaction by a section of the Hammers fanbase as it wasn’t embarrassing like some thought. Surely it’s better that a chairman is involved and invested in the club they own, rather than have one who takes a back seat and is never seen? You have to wonder if Sullivan suddenly sanctions the purchase of several other players this summer, whether the fans below would start being to him.
