We’re delighted to welcome former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at the London Stadium

Frank McAvennie is adamant the recent success of West Ham has done little to quell the discontent among supporters towards the current ownership.

The Irons are currently riding high in third position in the Premier League while they are well placed to achieve success in the Europa League and League Cup.

However, ex-Irons star McAvennie does not believe that has affected the relationship between the fans and the board.

David Sullivan and David Gold took charge of West Ham in 2010 with grand designs on disrupting the so-called elite clubs and making waves in Europe.

But the 2021/22 campaign is their first time in a European group under Gold and Sullivan after previous attempts at qualification were thwarted during the summer months.

“This is what was promised,” McAvennie told West Ham Zone. “Going into the new stadium fighting for a European spot.

“It’s taken 10/11 years so the fans are happy but I still think there’s a problem with the board. Some of the fans, unfortunately, will never accept them.

“It doesn’t bother me because I just continue to watch the boys and it’s great to watch. Some of the football [David] Moyes has got them playing is great. I know it’s counter-attacking but he’s got them playing well.”

In other West Ham news, Darren Gough predicts the Irons to make a major move in the January transfer window to sign this player.
