Takeover or fakeover at West Ham?

Sep 15, 2020, 11:48 PM
In perhaps the most predictable turn of events since the dawn of man, West Ham lost the opening game of the Premier League season at home to Newcastle in the limpest fashion imaginable.

Callum Wilson scored his 9millionth career goal against the Hammers and even Declan Rice was awful.

There was a faint glimmer of light among the darkness as David Moyes' men went on to beat Charlton 3-0 at home on Tuesday night to progress to the third round of the Carabao Cup where they will face Leeds or Hull City.

As fan anger towards David Gold, David Sullivan and Karren Brady continues to fester, reports emerged over the last week of takeover bids from an American consortium.

A latest bid of £400million was reportedly rejected by Messrs Gold and Sullivan at the end of August.

And Will Pugh, James Jones and Tom Edwards return as ever to dissect the legitimacy of the prospective bids, the on field woes, Rice's future and a HUGE announcement for the We Are West Ham podcast as they announce a season-long charity partnership with Hammers' shirt sponsor Betway.

Sports news editor at The Sun and big Arsenal fan Daniel Cutts joins the lads to look ahead to West Ham's game at the Emirates on Saturday.

'Name that Game' quiz is back and sports journalist and WSL expert Isabelle Barker also dials in to breakdown West Ham Women's 9-1 thrashing at the hands of Arsenal on Saturday.
