Clive Smith. I've just read your views on West Ham and for a moment I had to make sure you were a Hammer.

The first thing is did Gold and Sullivan personally tell you they are not going to buy the club.

Secondly, I thought the debt was more near the mark of 50 million and if you are talking about clubs with absolute crippling debt then look at Man Utd �685million, then Liverpool with �400-500million, Arsenal with �440million and further away in Europe Real Madrid something in the region of �900million.

So let's get or establish the meaning of the word crippling debt so our club doesn't even come anywhere near that.

However I do agree with you on the topic of Zola has lost it a bit and don't quote me wrong here, I love the man and he is the one I want to take us all the way but why does he only play one up front?

We don't score enough goals. He needs to take a bit of pressure off Cole and give him a partner up front.

And my next point is why hasn't he played Franco? Oh pardon me I've just been told he came on for 1 minute, wow, really had time to show us what he can do.

I know what he can do I've seen him regularly and he will link up so well with Coley and would be a total nightmare for defenders.

And finally I get really p----d off with some of the players we have. They simply aren't good enough and the board, well the sooner they go the better, so lets just wish and hope that we will have new owners before Christmas it will happen and sooner than later.

We've got this club in our blood, don't matter what so lets stick together on this.

Good day.
