Tightening the Purse Strings

West Ham's new owners are desperate to improve the club's finances.

The Sun are reporting that West Ham are stopping overnight hotel stays for the squad ahead of London away games in a bid to save money.

The Mail report that David Sullivan is making a direct appeal to West Ham supporters to spend money at the club,

"We have a million supporters who probably haven't seen us play in the last ten years and I bet 950,000 of them haven't even bought any club merchandise.
