Gold in season ticket Twitter ‘debate’

imageWith less then 48 hours to before the West Ham season ticket renewal deadline one season ticket holder called Jamiehas taken to Twitter to speak to joint chairman David Gold. Jamie wrote: “You always said you’d listen to us the fans?? Wont be renewing whilst Sam is in charge!”  

Gold replied “We will miss you. Good luck. dg”

A number of other Hammers  thought David Gold was mocking Jamie so Gold later replied

” I am not mocking, Managers and owners come and go but the club is there forever, fans are for life, it’s their club”  Gold’s tweet was later deleted

But not everyone feels the same way with another season ticket holder called Ian told Gold  “Renewed my season ticket, let’s hope we have a good run in the cup and we’re not fighting relegation” to which Gold simply replied “That’s the plan. dg”


The season ticket renewal deadline is Monday 2nd June at 5pm

  1. People need to think! with the use of twitter, it is fine to delete, but someone out there will have done a screen capture and it is there then for all to see for ever! I will only be going to selected games this season, and I will not be supporting Gold & Sullivan by purchasing merchandise, both will hurt, but they did say they would “listen to fans” and it is simple now they don’t. David Sullivan bottled it completely with the decision on Sam, and i can’t see anything changing next season with his tactics, he is just not able. Great to bring in Teddy, but like the way some of our talented players should play, I doubt Sam will allow Sherringham to do what could improve us.

    It hurt yesterday to read the words of Jack Collison, such dignity, and a True Hammer, something that Sam and some of his favourite boys in the side will never be! they are just here for a good pay day,, but we retain some of Sam’s Boys who have had their day, so things don’t change.

    Our media department I find embarrassing at times, they do not do what is best for the club, it is a propaganda unit for one or two players only and Sam. Today I feel totally embarrassed as do many others with the release of the Mug & T Shirt to mark our triple over another London club, it is taking us down to the level of a market stall mentality, not a professional premiership club, I am loyal to my club and have been since I was aged 6, but I never have had this complete hatred some seem to have for other London clubs, yes I like us to beat them, but never get obsessed with it.

    As Mr Gold points out I will be still here and loyal long after he and Mr Sullivan has gone and Sam!

  2. Fascinating. Please keep us to date with anything else that he Tweets.
