Bruce slams West Ham owners Gold and Sullivan
By Harvey Byrne
Centre-back Alex Bruce has hit out at West Ham co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan for “talking too much”.
Gold, 80, is especially vocal on social media and regularly interacts with fans, while Sullivan’s son Jack is also quick to share transfer news on the social media platform.
The goings on at the club are also often in the public domain and while some fans appreciate that, it particularly reflects badly when the club aren’t signing the likes of Carlos Bacca, Michy Batshuayi and Alexandre Lacazette like what was being reported in the summer.
Now, Bruce believes the way Sullivan and Gold act does not do the club any favours and he has slammed the businessmen for being an open book and talking too much.
“I think they talk too much, Sullivan and Gold, to be perfectly honest,” told Bruce to BBC Five Live on Friday evening.

“I think they’re an open book West Ham the way you know about every player they’re looking to get.
“They either comment, whether it’s social media or on the telly and I don’t think it does them any favours at all. They’re always talking about things like that.”

In football some fans complain about their owners being too cut off from the supporters, but many believe the way the West Ham pair interact is too much and Hammers fans themselves have also been critical of it.
It is clear that fans want some kind of information, but not too much of it as if it doesn’t happen like the aforementioned big name transfers then supporters will only be left disappointed.
West Ham are also going through a bad spell at the moment on the pitch as they sit in 15th place and in severe danger of being dragged into a relegation battle.
