New Hammers owner fears the drop

NEW West Ham co-owner David Sullivan fears the Hammers will face “Armageddon” if they are relegated from the Premier League.

NEW West Ham co-owner David Sullivan fears the Hammers will face “Armageddon” if they are relegated from the Premier League.

Sullivan bought the Hammers with David Gold last month, taking on debts of around �100m, but he is concerned for the club's future if Gianfranco Zola's men fail to beat the drop.

“It'll be Armageddon if we go down. It'll be worse than what's gone on at Newcastle,” Sullivan said in The Sun.

“I can't believe the contracts I've inherited. Every position is overpaid, whether in administration or on the playing side.
