Gold attacked on Twitter

West-Ham-United-co-owner-David-GoldChairman David Gold has been attacked by a Twitter follower  upset at the club leaving the Boleyn for the Olympic Stadium.
@MrTomEllmore  launched his attack by snapping at the chairman: “come off it gold all you see is the money. What about the history.”
He followed up  in a separate tweet adding that “the board didn’t care about the club or fans – only the money.”
After the chairman responded that he and David Sullivan care passionately for the club and hadn’t made a penny out of it in six years, the follower added that he wasn’t the only fan who didn’t want to leave the Boleyn.
That brought a one liner from DG who said:” I know and I’m disappointed with you both. dg”
Still not content, his antagonist replied: “The fact you can only reply with sarcasm shows how pathetic you are.”
Given the Olympic Stadium deal is done and dusted, this does feel like an exercise in wasted energy…but that’s Twitter for you!

  1. Nothing’s new. I wouldn’t mind betting my great granddad said the same thing when they left the Memorial Ground. Albeit he had a better case then as we moved from a big ground to a smaller one!

    • I doubt he would of,
      Since Arnold Hills was evicting West Ham from the memorial grounds so they had no choice but to move to a new ground

  2. OMG….we’re leaving the boleyn??!!

    nobody tells me anything!

  3. Hmm I believe even DG said he was gutted to BE LEAVING

  4. Don’t think Mr Gold should get so involved on Twitter, the media department at the club should be making announcements in email’s to loyal supporters on their fan base and to the media. But Mr Gold likes what he does, then today he should Defend his supporters from the attack from A|lardyce and his whine about his portakabin office, doesn’t mention his high salary he got, way above his level.

  5. What happens if this guy on Twitter no longer comes to the games? What are we gonna’ do?

  6. At least benitez has the balls to dig back at the illiterate one !!!!
    At least we now know why he picked Nolan ! He only ever remembered the letters ANOL and left the rest for the ball boy to note down, he only remembered these letters cos he talked out of it 24 / 7.

    The portercabin was to make him feel like he was back in school to help with his education
    But just could not wrap his head around the west ham way project !!!!!!!! At all !!!
