Many fans on social media have been divided by comments made by Steve Lomas regarding Gold & Sullivan and their relationship with supporters.
Arguing the cliche ‘be careful what you wish for’, the 206-appearance ex-Hammer defended the owners, conceding that they’ve made mistakes but none of their failings have been out of malice and anyone who thinks they have is an “idiot.”
Some fans partially agreed with the West Ham Ambassador and some totally disagreed with him, accusing him of utterly missing the point and stating that they’ve no longer got time for the 46-year-old, along with Tony Gale.
Also in the same interview, an exclusive with The Sun, Lomas called for supporters to put an end to the protests and focus on getting behind Moyes and the players. Why can’t they do both?
Here’s the best of the mixed reaction to the GSB comments…

Hes completely missed the point. Despite their (misguided) best intentions, they are unable to tun the club successfully. That’s it. They are not good enough to be a top class footballing outfit. It’s simple and one of the problems is they are surrounded by half baked yes men.

Zero time for Lomas now. Gale the same. Trying to divide support, club tactics.

Not good to generalise and call people idiots when he is not working a full week of proper work, travels to the ground by train and walk and pays out money week in week out to watch top level incompetence from the board

I agree they’re not malicious in their intent but they are incompetent and that is just as bad if not worse.

I agree to a point. Of course the owners don’t WANT us to struggle. They want to make as much money for themselves as possible. However, what they have and more importantly haven’t done is causing us to struggle. That’s the point.

Nothing to do with them not wanting the club to struggle. It’s about their bad management
