Robbie Savage tears into West Ham owners in strong rant
By Harvey Byrne
Outspoken pundit and former midfielder Robbie Savage is the latest to have hit out at the West Ham board for being too vocal.
On Friday evening Wigan centre-back Alex Bruce tore into the Hammers’ chiefs for “talking too much.”
The east London club are owned by David Gold and David Sullivan with Gold in particular extremely active on social media site Twitter, while Sullivan’s son Jack often breaks news on there too.
Now, Savage has blasted the hierarchy at West Ham also and has specifically called out vice-chairman Karren Brady for sending out a picture of a cheeseboard before the club fell to a 3-0 defeat against Arsenal in midweek.
“Deano (Dean Saunders) alluded to it last week,” started Savage when speaking about West Ham on BT Sport on Saturday afternoon.

“The hierarchy should just shut up. Let the manager get on with his job. He’s got Karren Brady Tweeting pictures of the cheeseboard at Arsenal before the game.
“It’s rubbing West Ham fans’ noses into the Camembert. If you’re a West Ham fan going to that game and you’ve paid a lot of money for a ticket. You’ve got the vice-chairmen Tweeting pictures of the cheeseboard before the game, seriously just why.
“Don’t Tweet, don’t say anything. Let the manager get on with his job.”

Both Gold and Sullivan have been in charge of West Ham since 2010 with Brady joining the club at the same time.
The trio have overseen the Hammers suffer relegation to the Championship before winning promotion back to the Premier League a season later via the play-offs.
The east London side have since played in Europe and moved into their new London Stadium home from Upton Park, which has helped the club progress off the pitch.
Meanwhile, on the pitch West Ham are struggling in 14th in the Premier League table, but they will be hoping Saturday’s victory against Swansea is beginning of a fine run of form.
