DG careful of playing injury card

spt_ai_cardiff_whu_09.jpgDavid Gold has been careful not to replay the “injury card ” in FULL as the reason for our Villa Park failure.

But he ventured back onto thin ice on Twitter after yesterday’s game to declare: “We are not winning because we are not scoring goals. Obvious. Part reason. Our two top goal scorers are injured. dg

The co chairman took a lot of stick last week when appearing to blame a dismal performance at Loftus Road on injuries although he insisted he was merely stating a fact rather than excuse finding.

He told ClaretandHugh: “I am not trying to protect or excuse anything – merely stating a fairly obvious fact.”

However, another post was far more positive and upbeat when he assured a fan on the future of the Bobby Moore statue.

He explained: “The Bobby Moore statue will come with us to the new stadium. dg

  1. Carrolls never fit,dont even bring him into the equation anymore.The big news is when he is fit.Pretty sad situation when you bemoan not having a guy with 5 prem goals all season.Sams marquee signing,cheers hippohead!!!

  2. When sakho was fit and scoring. Wasn’t BFS praising Teddy Sheringham? Well what happened to TS this 2nd half of the season if his that good?
    BFS is playing Burke out of little/no choice and his stepping up. So why not give a young striker a chance if we’re not scoring?
    Why let zarate go if you only have one goal scorer? I mean you could never rely on AC to stay fit right?
    My theory is 1: Sakho wasn’t a BFS signing but TS was.
    2: BFS has a shockingly bad youth policy.
    3: Again… Zarate went coz not a BFS signing.
    The man is stubborn and can’t see any other way but his.
    He don’t take gambles when sometimes there needed.
    Nothing is ever his fault.
    Used to be a supporter of BFS. But since last season I’ve sat up and took note of the actual man. He ain’t good for a whu future.

  3. Fed up with injuries being an excuse. It’s the same for all teams and is all part of the game. It’s what a balanced squad is for. As opposed to loaning out some of your most promising players and not playing the ones you bring in on loan as cover.

  4. Best keep out of the media until he has got shot of NCS
    we are not scoring goals because NCS left Nene,Cole on the bench and stared with one forward,and one short in midfield,
    We are not scoring goals because NCS went to Villa To respect the point and when they score he has no plan B
    Or so my 6 year old grandson told me,DG I can give you his phone number if you are struggling to find the reason for no goals,
