Reported £60m boost can only be good news for West Ham this summer - Verdict

Money; some say it’s the root of all evil, others say it makes the world go round.
Maybe both are true, but the fact of the matter is that to get anywhere in football these days, you need a bit of coin in the wallet.
New stadiums, overpriced players, meddling agents, everywhere a club turns, there is money to be spent on the seemingly endless, and usually thankless task of chasing success.
It’s always nice, therefore, when a team comes into a bit of money.
It can ease the nerves or quicken the pulse going into a transfer window, and it can certainly have a huge influence on the fortunes of a side from one season to the next.
West Ham supporters will be delighted, therefore to hear that their owners David Gold and David Sullivan, are doing alright for themselves. According to the Sunday Times’ Rich List, as reported by Football.London, the duo have seen their personal wealths grow by £60 million to in excess of £1.6 billion over the past year. Must be nice.
From the Hammers’ point of view, however, this can only be a good thing.
Obviously, personal wealth of an owner is no guarantee of funds finding their way into a football club, but certainly it must be reassuring to know that the men in charge of the pursestrings aren’t exactly scrimping and scraping.
With a big summer of business expected in East London, this extra boost could just be a sign of more big spending to come.
