West Ham co-owner David Sullivan's 12-year-old son Jack apologized on Twitter for the club's signing of Arsenal punchline Marouane Chamakh on loan before the move was even officially announced.

Unhappy about the acquisition of the frequently mocked striker who has yet to make a Premier League appearance this season, young Jack tweeted, "I am very sorry about this news Chamakh has sign [sic] a 6 month loan deal! no my pick :(" That tweet was later deleted, though his oddly punctuated attempt to make up for it ("I hope Chamakh can prove me wrong !?!?!?!") remains.

Though still a schoolboy, Jack Sullivan has built a following on Twitter by promising to "give u the top whu news" and presenting himself as a club insider by telling fans looking for transfer news that "you will get it first from me." This should definitively prove that parenting and football club ownership don't mix.
