DG: “This was the sweetest yet”

david-goldWest Ham’s wonderful victory over Spurs has been greeted with the word “the sweetest yet” by co chairman David Gold.

Still basking in the glory of a fabulous victory he said: “There have been some wonderful moments this season but that beats all – it’s the sweetest because it’s Spurs.”

It was clearly hard for the chairman to properly explain his feelings such was his joy but he told ClaretandHugh exclusively: “When you see the right full back for the night at the near post heading home a wonderful goal from a corner you realise you are watching something special.

It was a managerial masterstroke putting in five at the back – a touch of genius. Both he and Aaron Cresswell were playing as genuine wing backs. Then came the second half and the astonishing performance by the defence.

Andy Carroll’s introduction made a big difference too. He got his foot on the ball, held it up and made life more difficult for Spurs.

Now we move on to Everton with some absent players because of injury but you are not going to bet against this team now. Who know where we are going. Europe is a real possibility and perhaps now it’s more a case of which competition!

It as a fans’ night – they will have loved that. To beat Spurs at any time is such a joy – to beat them at this particular stage of this particular season was wonderful.”

  1. Can’t disagree with any of that,
    Why when we beat all these so called better teams is they are having an off day not that we are better,
    Then you read that the so called better teams that includes Liverpoor a team we have beaten 3 times who will have a worse stadium then ours get to talk about a European league,
    Where were us Leicester Southhampton Everton,all better teams then Liverpoor,
    Like the pundits we need to upgrade the situation,the days of old have gone,no one team dominates the premier and all clubs should be in talks,

  2. WHU WILL HAVE BEATEN SPURS IN OUR LAST GAME WITH THEM AT THE BOLEYN FOREVER! COYI!

  3. Sweet revenge in style ! Smirking like a Cheshire cat on steroids lol! Love the excuses about the pitch ? But in poksychinos remark I hear hippocritical tenures , I quote , ( thick or what )
    IN THE SECOND HALF THEY GAVE US MORE ROOM AND WE WERE MUCH BETTER ?????
    In 15 minutes the pitch got better due to the fairies !! It goes down in the ministry of silly quotes of sour grapes ! As for the super clubs bubs , it will not happen IMO , this is what happens when you get yanks involved they destroy all they touch through greed !
