Almost three quarters of West Ham United fans claim that the club's hierarchy are doing a "poor" job, while 67% believe that the decision to move stadiums was a bad one.

Almost three quarters of West Ham United fans believe that the club's hierarchy are doing a "poor" job, according to a recent survey.

Hammers fans have regularly protested against co-owners David Gold and David Sullivan, as well as vice-chairwoman Karren Brady, during their 10-year reign at the helm.

West Ham are once again embroiled in a relegation battle this season, only sitting outside the bottom three on goal difference, while there has also been fierce criticism regarding the club's decision to move to the London Stadium from the Boleyn Ground.

The Daily Telegraph reports that a survey of 11,672 match-going supporters found that 73% agreed that Gold, Sullivan and Brady were doing a "poor" job, while 57% felt that the London Stadium would never feel like home.

When asked whether the stadium move had been a good decision 67% of fans answered 'no', compared to just 27% when the same survey was carried out a year ago.

In response to the survey, West Ham supporters group Hammers United released a statement saying: "We are not surprised at the damning results of the 2020 London Stadium survey.

"Karren Brady said there were just a few 'malcontents' who were unhappy. But this independent survey confirms the true feelings of the West Ham supporters with only five per cent believing the board are doing a good job.

"Baroness Brady spoke of 'a magnificent new home', 'the most successful stadium migration in history' and 'a world-class team for a world class stadium'. She should now take the honourable course of action and offer her immediate resignation."

West Ham have finished inside the top half just twice in the last six seasons.
