Gold gives Slav transfer kitty pledge

David-Sullivan-and-David-Gold_2441171David Gold has pledged that he and co chairman David Sullivan will back new boss Slaven Bilic to the hilt in this summer’s transfer market.

With Pedro Obiang having arrived as the Irons latest signing he explained: “Stephen Hendrie and Darren Randolph are also here so we are building the squad.

“Slav has two or three players he wants to bring in over the next two or three weeks and we want to get the business done as quickly as possible.

“There’s been a lot made in the media of the supposed amount we are spending this summer. I’ve seen figures of £25 million – £30 mentioned.

Slaven-Bilic“But anybody  who has watched the way we operate will know that we have a habit off fetching into our own pockets if there is a player or two the manager really wants so let’s  not get  locked into figures too strictly.

“If it isn’t possible for the football club to find deals thenit is down to myself and David -we’ve done that in thepast andwill again if necessary.

“We have our manager and we will back him all the way. Whilst we were between managers we brought in players whom we believe will be good for the squad. We know what we are doing in those areas after 20 years in the game.

“But now our manager will be making his decisions and we will back him to the hilt as far as possible because that’s what we always do.”

  1. Sounds positive from DG,just make sure you’ve got someone to verify the photos as you announce the new signings on twitter lol

  2. Wonderful news, well done DG

  3. Yep,give us what you can max out on without going ott.Anything near 200m will be appreciated 😀

  4. Love this transfer kitty pledge and this quote “The Bilic Revolution”.
    Come the glorious day, COYI.

  5. ahah…What happened last night??? I believed Hugh was abducted by Cookie Monster… anyway I trust in the owners and in the manager, I’m sure they’ll buy quality, skilled and young players. Selling Nolan we could get £20 mil… it’s a good start, but it’s not enough. lol

    • Haha I think it was Kev in his quest for us to stay in the Stone Age he’s tried to rid the world of the internet.

      • ahahh.. anything is possible… mmmh… I should investigate this issue in detail… lol

  6. Pity the Cookie Monster could not stop hippo in the evening standard,
    Warning Slav how quick we will turn on him
    We gave him 3 years before we turned on him Slav Only has 3 year contract,
    And if he plays the West Ham Way we will not turn just sing and cheer
    Hippo sour grapes make you look pathetic go and find a championship side that thinks it needs you poor them
