Gold makes point on summer signings

West-Ham-United-co-owner-David-GoldDavid Gold has jumped to the club’s defence in the transfer market telling fans to remember the good as well as those they may consider the not so good

His words came amid much criticism of this year’s arrivals which has been a constant theme since the new season kicked off.

And in a new tweet from the co chairman he is keen to remind the critics of the wonderful group the club brought together during the summer of 2015.

Many fans have reacted against the players brought in over the summer with many reminding the co chairman of several down the years such as  Ilan, Mido, Benni McCarthy, Robbie Keane, Chamakh, Wellington Paulista, Marco Borriello, Nenē and Emenike.

Gold, however, defended the club’s record in the transfer market pointing to last summer as exceptional.

Tweeting his defence he declared: “Every club has its disappointing transfer deals but we mustn’t forget our recent success. Lanzini, Payet, Cresswell, Antonio, Kouyate + .dg

  1. Bit of advice DG, when you say your going to deliver a marquee striker deliver one, when you say your going to get better players deliver them and when you’ve got **** on the books that never play and get paid a fortune get rid of them! Not to hard is it ? 🙂

  2. What’s one summer last year got to do with this summer’s signings?

  3. It’s this years crop that is being criticised – and no one, including the ever upbeat Mr Gold, can deny that they have been a right load of deadlegs – especially after we were being told repeatedly that David Sullivan was working ‘night and day’ on the Clubs Transfers, god knows what he was doing!!

  4. Most of this years signings are under 25, many came from overseas personally I am giving them more time, also a lot were bought to effectively be our European and cup team and as mentioned previously in posts it was last years team that have been mostly responsible for poor goals conceded, with the exception of two penalties one conceded by Masuaku and one by Nordveidt the new signings can’t be blamed for that, remember also we have lost more points from winning positions with effectively last years team than any other team in the league. The problem is not the new signings it is the teams defending from front to back, that is down to all the players selected whether new or old.

  5. Only as good as your last signing so record terrible !! Too much marquee signing chat and not enough action . We are desperate for 2 defenders and 2 forwards ( not second rate wingers in case Carrol ever plays ! ) One thing for sure is that it is not only the new signings that are poor . Look at Noble … won’t be difficult he is the one standing in midfield giving the ball away ….he is atrocious . Worse player in league by a million miles . He is complete rubbish .
