Gold on Dimi’s Everton revenge

West-Ham-United-co-owner-David-GoldDavid Gold has refused to pull his punches in discussing the amazing win over Everton and Dimi Payet’s part in it.

The ‘Upton Park Zinedine Zidane’ suffered the biggest low of his season when ruthlessly challenged by James McCarthy in the first encounter at the Boleyn.

That put him out of action for two months and the bad blood between the two club reached boiling point as a result.

Now the Hammers co chairman has made his feelings pretty clear on the McCarthy challenge and how Dimi will have responded to his last minute winner at Goodison Park.

A follower on Twitter said to him:”Imagine if McCarthy hadn’t of put Payet out for 2 months we would’ve won the league.

Gold’s response was succinct and to the point as he declared: “Beating Everton in the last minute was sweet revenge for Dimitri Payet. dg”

He added: “Great players, great manager great fans. Perfect storm.

  1. Just think what will happen if we draw Everton in the next round of the FA cup,
    Will DG wish he had not made those remarks ?
    I hope he stands by them because without that assault ( not a tackle ) we would be in the Spuds place in the league,
    I admire our owners for being straight and honest maybe Martinez could learn from them and Slav
    Dignity and Honesty cost nothing

  2. Have to admit that every time I read one of your posts bubs the first word that pops in to my mind is dignity – and you’re right of course – it costs nothing.

  3. Never used the word much until Slav joined us and that is the first word that comes to mind every time he appears,
    Before Slav arrogant was my first word then Delusional Rubbish and not talking just about the manager,
    My big word is Entertainment which I think all sport should provide to us all,
    Pride will be one I hope to use for our club and England in the near future
