David Gold has replied to the Real West Ham Fans Action Group on social media.
The Action groups official twitter followed by 6,800 people posted a message saying:
’10 years ago we owned our own stadium and everyone loved it… 10 years on our home has been knocked down and we now play in an athletic stadium what a lot of fans hate… progress at its finest’
Gold reading the message online decided to defend himself and replied with:
‘Ten years ago the stadium was (for all intents and purposes) owned by the banks and just before we arrived the banks were demanding the club sell Parker, Green and Cole to pay down some of the debt, as the club had broken its covenant and was on the brink of administration. dg’
The action group have since replied:
‘Mr Gold. The fans want truthful honest answers. This is our open invite for you to come and speak to the fans… come and be a speaker at our march and tell the fans some truth. This won’t be a Q&A, we just want answers from 3 simple questions. Why haven’t we got a stadium fit for football? Why was all our heritage sold online and not brought with us? And why have we been promised things that haven’t been delivered? We just want the truth Mr Gold. No more lies’
