David Gold has been surprised by Sam Allardyce’s claim that his wife Lyn followed Hammers fans websites “to see what new insults were being fired’ at her husband
The former Irons boss had revealed to the Sun on Sunday: “When I was at West Ham my wife, Lyn, would constantly read the supporters website to see what new insults were being fired.’
‘It upset her but she couldn’t keep away from the screen.”
Gold admitted to ClaretandHugh that this came as a surprise to him declaring that he had met Lyn, liked her, and had no hard feelings towards Sam.
But he revealed: “Lyn would never come to games because she didn’t like hearing some of the comments directed towards Sam at times so given that, I was a little surprised to find that she followed the terrible abuse sometimes handed out on Twitter and elsewhere!”
There are no hard feelings towards Sam from me. He did a good job at the time it was needed. He did what was asaked of him but after four years together it was time for a change. Simple as that.
