David Sullivan sends a reminder to West Ham fans

West Ham Upton Park

David Sullivan reflects on West Ham United’s defeat to Newcastle United in the Premier League at the weekend.

West Ham United co-chairman David Sullivan has written on the club’s official website that the team are having a good season.

Sullivan has reminded the fans that despite West Ham’s defeat to Newcastle United at the weekend, they are still in the top six of the Premier League.

The 66-year-old has also claimed that the Hammers could have nicked a draw at St. James’ Park on Saturday instead of suffering a 2-1 defeat.

“Despite Saturday ruining my weekend, as I'm sure it did for most supporters, in the cold light of day we are not having a bad season!” the 66-year-old has written on West Ham’s official website. “We are still in the top six and there is still everything to play for,”

“We were nowhere near our best during the first half on Saturday and sadly that ended up costing us the game,” added the West Ham co-chairman. “I agree 100 per cent with the manager that we were better in the second half and we could have nicked a draw.”

West Ham are sixth in the Premier League table at the moment with 35 points from 22 matches.

Slaven Bilic’s side are just four points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently fourth and occupy the final Champions League spot.

A top-four finish is perhaps beyond West Ham, but a top-eight or a top-six place is certainly possible.

The London outfit have a good team and have looked strong in recent weeks, and with star player Dimitri Payet back in action, fans should be optimistic.
