Fernandes Wants to Invest in West Ham

Tony Fernandes, CEO of AirAsia claims he is in talks with the West Ham owners about investing in the club. Speaking on Twitter he said,

"If the fans want me to get involved I will. It’s a great club and we fans have suffered too long. Discussions have taken place. Long way to go but a good frank start."

This morning he posted this,

"All Hammer fans told you as much as I can. Have to go on radio silence now out of respect to the owners. I know what I need. Let’s see if we can do it. From dark days come lots of positive. Has happened too many many times. Love to all Hammers."

Despite Demba Ba's agent spending the last couple of week's hinting that his player will not be at West Ham next season the player himself says he hasn't yet thought about a move.

Speaking to Sky Sports the striker said,

"I haven't thought about it, to tell you the truth. I haven't thought about it because I was playing and thinking that West Ham was not going to be relegated. I wasn't thinking about next season here or something else.

"I am just going to have some days off with my family and after that I will start thinking a little bit."

The Telegraph are reporting that a 'close friend' of Avram Grant says that six managers were offered the West Ham manager job in January, including Martin O'Neill, Steve McClaren and Sam Allardyce.

The 'friend' says that all of the six managers turned down the job because 'they knew the situation there.'

this is old news, what six managers didnt want the job ?? its pure bull ! nobody wanted the wolly with the brolly, he wasnt even approuched about the position. and we didnt want gus poyet, the bourd have already issued a statement that they are looking for an english - british manager. maybe if the press stop rubbing the players nose in all the crap, we may have the choice to keep hold of demba ba. nobody cares if we lose cole, upson dyer & co. those players know what there effort has been this year. (next to none !) without rob green we could have been more of a joke. if ba stays it will be a major bonus for the re build.

Any group of players that fail to hold onto a 2 goal lead with 35 minutes left to save themselves from relegation deserve all the contempt that the press heaps upon them,especially when it compounded,all season long,by idiocy off the pitch and not just on it.

Demba Ba would be very valuable to any bottom half Premier League side- there is no reason on earth why he would want to remain at West Ham UNLESS we made an absolute superb hire for a new manager,with a serious mandate to get us promoted immediately.

As for the 6 candidates last January,that just sounds like sour grapes. If it bothered Grant that much ,then he should have simply done the club and teh supporters a favour and resigned. But of course he didn't do that,because he wanted his money. Grant should have been man enough to admit that he was out of his depth and had failed in every way by January. And Cup appearances just masked reality ,especially since much of the Cup opposition was weak.

And exactly right- nobody wanted McLaren,who is a total and utter failure. As for Fernandes ,too little, too late. If he cared about the club,he would made an investment last January when the funds could have been used to buy a proper central defender,which we have not had since Collins was sold. Fernandes may have a big bank account ,but he has no dignity or respect. You cannot buy those things. All talk and no action-that is what Fernandes is.

Keep your mouth shut Fernandes- wheh ACTUALLY MAKE A REAL INVESTMENT IN THIS CLUB,then you can start to talk.

Look, at the end of the day we are down and if tony fernandes wants to invest it can only be a good thing for the club,its not his fault the owners didn't get rid of grant in january or buy some better players when they had the chance,so start blaning the people who are in charge.
