DG: Cresswell deal shows we’re a different club

cresswell-aaron-cresswell-west-ham-west-ham-v-tottenham_3192011David Gold believes the signing of Aaron Cresswell to a five year deal has “made a real statement” to the rest of the Premier League.

He said: “We are becoming a different club and that Aaron should be ready to sign five years of his life to us shows us and the rest of the league that.

“He’s attracted a lot of attention from elsewhere in his first season and this is a major event in his life and that of the club. He had a great first season but can become a better and better player over the next five years.

“He has massive potential and if he can score say half a dozen goals a season I think he will be in the international frame.”

Gold explained that it was entirely right that the club should give him a longer and better deal explaining: “He was aware that as a Championship player previously, he had some proving to do.

“But he showed us all how good he is and it was entirely right that he should be given the sort of deal he now has with West Ham.

“He’s a very exciting footballer and can be anything he wants to be. These are exciting times. Everything is going really well this summer and the fans are highly expectant as they should be.”

  1. The trouble is in these times is lengths of contracts don’t count for nothing,
    If Real come in for him tomorrow and offer double his wages he will leave and how much we get for him is the only thing that counts,
    I hope we put £30 million buy out clause in there to,
    I think he is a stayer anyway

  2. That’s true: we have the right manager, a modern manager who wants quality players. On the horizon’s the new stadium, it will enabled West Ham to increase their buying power: more money, greater visibility and class players. Prehistory left with the hipposaurus, we are entering the modern age. By the way, where the fu*k is the Genius? lol

    • This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius hippy Matte lol
      The genius may be reappearing the people of Leicester have descended on their churches,mosques and temples to pray for the hippo to come to their club lol

      • ahhah… I wouldn’t like to be in their shoes… a future full of pain, stomach acidity, broken tv, swear words… It’s too horrible to think about…

      • Haha that sounds bad Matte but I think that’s pretty much what Leicester is like already

  3. That is the real reason behind giving these players long contracts. The making sure that we don’t see our top talent walk out the door for nothing. In my book that is good business sense. These players cost £m’s in wages etc, the club are protecting their interests.

  4. Anyone else experiencing problems on here with adverts keep popping up and the screen jumping all over the place?

  5. Yep

    It’s a pain

    In the ass
