West Ham bid 50p for the £2 coin thrown at co-owner David Sullivan
- By Football Burp
West Ham United have lodged a bid of 50p for the £2 coin thrown at co-owner David Sullivan during the 0-3 defeat to Burnley.
Tempers flared at the Hammers’ repurposed Olympics stadium as David Moyes’s side crashed to another demoralising defeat, with some fans entering the pitch to fight Mark Noble.
Others remained in the stands to shower the directors’ box with their hard-earned cash, including a £2 coin that struck Sullivan before landing on top of the club’s wish list.
The actual physical whereabouts of the coin are currently unknown, with a number of stewards standing accused of swiping it.
But this has not stopped West Ham from publicly tabling a 50p offer to whoever’s got their mitts on it.
A spokesperson said: “In finding its target, that £2 coin succeeded where all of our players failed – needless to say, David was impressed.
“Whoever’s got it, if you’re listening, we’ll give you 50p for it – or, if it’s agreeable, 40p plus Andy Carroll.
“A loan deal is not out of the question either. That’s what we did with Joe Hart when Torino’s president threw him at Mark Noble.”
