The co chairman has found himself caught up more and more in the downside of Twitter over recent days after being criticised for comments about injuries not helping a dismal showing at QPR.
But this morning (Thurs) he snapped at a follower who decided to use the hashtag #jokeclub .
It had read: We’re gonna finish 12th, all because our depth in the squad and lack of good management @davidgold #joke club.
The co chairman responded: “I am tired of this. We are not a “joke club” we are a GREAT club going though a difficult time. dg
That opened the floodgates with a mass of responses pouring in – most claiming the problem laid with Sam Allardyce’s continuing management.
One said: “You’re ‘tired of all this’? Sack Allardyce tomorrow and you’d have the fans back inside instantly. Problem solved.
Later DG returned to the subject to declare in one tweet: “When 87% of the fans ask us to go, as they did at Birmingham and next time be careful what you wish for. dg
And his latest he adds: “I don’t get shirty when fans question my judgement but I do get upset when they say that our club is a “joke” dg
