David Gold has claimed that West Ham’s board of directors is the best the club has had for years.
The co-chairman came under fire from a member of the Twitter keyboard army last night and quickly responded.
Fan Jack Allum wrote that he believed ‘Allardyce was a shambles and the board even worse.’
But Gold snapped back : “I shouldn’t say this Jack but this is the best board WHU have had for many years. dg”
Gold dodged the Allardyce statement and focused on defending his fellow board members.
However, his statement risks upsetting Honorary Life president and shareholder Terry Brown who was a previous chairman for 15 years until 2006 and the Cearns family who are still season ticket holders in the Alpari upper.
