Gold: Let’s put another brick in the wall

slavDavid Gold – thrilled with the victory at Palace – has told the squad: “Now let’s start making the London Stadium feel like home  with another important win.”

Out-of-sorts Sunderland arrive on Saturday and the co-chairman believes the players have a fabulous opportunity to make it six points from two games with a new stadium start.

Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh he explained: “The feeling among the lads after the win was brilliant and it was wonderful to see the manager smiling and laughing again.

“He is largely a very relaxed and happy man but he has been under some  stress like us all and it was great to see him back to something like his usual self after the game, smiling and enjoying the banter.

“My feelings on the Aaron Cresswell sending off have been aired so I won’t go there but there was so much to admire in the game, notably Winston Reid with a performance which we needed in a big way -he was absolutely at the top of his form.

We kept two top class wingers quiet and how great that Manu Lanzini should score at a time when he really needed a goal.

“With the various issues we have experienced at the stadium we are now perfectly placed to go there on Saturday and start making it feel like home with a win. Let’s put another brick in the wall.”

  1. Heard that kind of talk far too often , David . We’ve been rolled over too often after such emotionally provoked comments . Players used to do it far too much , Nolan springs to mind and usually resulted in disappointment the following Saturday .
    We should stay quite and just get on with it , instead of building up the Will to Win by visiting teams . We were going to hammer West Brom , if you remember . The move to the LS is hard enough and it’s our problem to solve . But we won’t solve it by disregarding opposition teams like Sunderland who are fighting for Thier lives .
    It’s serious stuff now with the games against bigger clubs rapidly approaching . Best to just knuckle down and get on with it instead of getting all over excited . Those bricks in the Wall haven’t been too well cemented lately .

  2. ’emotionally provoked comments’.its hardly Churchillian is it.He just said lets get a win at the LS.. nothing more,nothing less.
    How saying something like that is ment to provoke Sunderland into action i know not..

  3. I can’t believe some of our so called fans. Some of them seem as if they can’t wait for us to lose so they can make their miserable selves right. Nothing wrong with encouragement and positivity. What else would you expect from our co-chairman? Let’s stop with the gloom and doom ffs. COYI X
