Gold denies team selection interference


david-goldDavid Gold has slapped down accusations that he and David Sullivan are influencing Slaven Bilic’s team selections.

The co chairman has been quiet on Twitter recently but was moved to respond when he and his co chairman were told that they have left the manager “powerless.”

One supporterย  accused Gold of interfering with the Croat’s selections, saying: “Name me one youth player who has broken through to the first team since [Gold and Sullivan] took over? Bilic is powerless. It starts from up top.”

The accusation didn’t stack up because Declan Rice has been involved the squad since the start of the season and Blic regiuarly takes youngsters from the Under 23s from Chadwell Hath to Rush Green to training.

However, faced with the charge Gold then responded: “We have our opinions but we do not influence team selection.”

  1. If Sullivan and gold are picking the team and running transfer business it would answer a lot of questions but it does prove that either way Bilic is ball less and clueless . If he picks the teams … Noble week after week ????? and refuses to play any of the kids he is a terrible manager … if he allows dildo brothers to do it he is a spineless waste of space . They all must go . There is no leadership in the Board Room , from Bilic and not a glimmer from Capt awful on the pitch .

  2. We have our opinions ? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚
    +1 bubbles ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I think Gold is pretty upfront about his favourites and Bilic team is often different to that.

    • Agree I don’t think they pick the selection they have favs like u said but in the end Bilic picks has to not like they would sack him for not picking their favs…
