Gold: I’d have banned DS abusers

GoldandsullivanDavid Gold is stunned that none of those involved in verbally attacking co-chairman┬áDavid Sullivan last weekend have bothered to send “even an anonymous letter of apology.”

Shocked DG has maintained a dignified silence throughout the week since a mob made their foul mouthed protest in the Hawthorns car park as he left early to visit his sick mother.

But today – speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh he said: “What happened will be a smear on this club for a long time to come in my mind.

“Had they come out publicly and apologised I would have banned them anyway so I can understand their reluctance on that front.

“But surely they feel ashamed enough to send a private and anonymous apology – that’s the very least that David might have expected.

“I was personally utterly disgusted and could barely believe what I was watching. We have had wonderful messages of support from the proper fans but nothing from the culprits which is shocking.”

  1. Davids, we would not swap ye for any other perspective owners but the fans are tired at looking at our style of football under BFS, he has not changed nor will he ever. He does not give youth a chance I can go on and on. His performance this season as our manager has infuriated every fan. The frustration is with us all so please get rid of him if we lose and use the rest of the season to blood youth and repair the damage he has done.

    • That’s all very well but it cannot ever excuse this kind of behaviour!

      After all the owners have been through and have done for the club, talk about bite the hand that feeds you!
